Learning in Retirement, The Potential to Improve Vision with Augmented Reality
Organized by Donald Mastronarde, Professor of the Graduate School, Emeritus Melpomene Distinguished Professor of Classical Languages and Literature

Emily Cooper, Assistant Professor in School of Optometry; affiliated with Vision Science Program and Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute

Today, an estimated 6 million adults in the United States have a visual impairment. The vast majority of these people are not completely blind: they have functional residual vision that they use in their daily life. Can emerging augmented reality technologies be used to provide visual assistance to people with vision loss? Professor Cooper will present work assessing several augmented reality paradigms aimed at assisting key visual functions, such as recognizing objects and navigating buildings.
