Design Agents And The Need For High-Dimensional Perception

Designed artefacts may be quantified by any number of measures. This paper aims to show that in doing so, the particular measures used may matter very little, but as many as possible should be taken. A set of building plans is used to demonstrate that arbitrary measures of their shape serve to classify them into neighbourhood types, and the accuracy of classification increases as more are used, even if the dimensionality of the space in which classification occurs is held constant.

Pan Ye's research investigates how a multi-view, multi-site video conferencing system can exploit eye-tracking information. The main technical work will be in building example teleconferencing systems using high-definition video which incorporate eye-tracking.
