Joint Meeting with the Minnesota Technical Symposium (www.minnts.org)
Topic: Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality
Hayley Borck, "MonitAR Intelligent Guidance using Augmented Reality." She is currently with Adventium Labs (cyber security and system engineering). She is working on a project for NASA on AI systems used to guide astronauts when they are not in contact with earth communications.
Michael Nowak, "The Rise of Virtual Reality," currently with Ultimarc and founder of Vektor Software. He is one of the cofounders of the Minneapolis Virtual Reality Meetup. He will give us a history of the development of VR (and AR).

"MonitAR: Intelligent Guidance using Augmented Reality" (Hayley Borck)
MonitAR is a novel application of Case-based Reasoning (CBR) that combines intelligent tutoring using Augmented Reality (AR) and prediction. The MonitAR system is intended for use as an intelligent guidance system for astronauts conducting complex procedures during periods of a communication time delay or blackout from Earth. The approach takes advantage of the relational nature of time-series data to detect a task that the user is completing and diagnose the issue when the user is about to make a mistake.
