04/13/2022 01:00 PM 04/13/2022 02:00 PM America/Chicago Masahiko Inami (University of Tokyo) – Virtual Cyborg: Beyond Human Limits UChicago HCI Club Seminar Crerar 298, 5730 S. Ellis Ave., Chicago, IL,

The social revolutions have accompanied innovation of the view of the body. If we regard the information revolution as the establishment of a virtual society against the real society, it is necessary to design a new view of the body “JIZAI body (Virtual Cyborg)“, which can adapt freely to the change of social structure, and establish a new view of the body.

In this talk, we discuss how we understand basic knowledge about body editing for the construction of the JIZAI body (Virtual Cyborg) based on VR, AR, Robotics, and Superhuman Sports: Applying Human Augmentation to Physical Exercise.

This talk will also present Superhuman Sports, a form of “Human-Computer Integration” to overcome somatic and spatial limitations of humanity by merging technology with the body. We hope to create a future of sports where everyone, strong or weak, young or old, non-disabled or disabled, can play and enjoy playing without being disadvantaged.

Zoom information is shared in the internal HCI Club mailing list and UChicago CS Slack channel.
