Media X Stanford

  1. 1. Insights Into Innovation Introducing Media X at Stanford University Contact: martha.russell@stanford.edu or charles.h.house@stanford.edu
  2. 2. H-STAR HUMAN SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGIES ADVANCED RESEARCH INSTITUTE Media X is Stanford's catalyst for industry and academic research into the impact of information and technology on society. Drawing on the world class capabilities of 93 Stanford researcher leaders in departments, centers and labs across the campus, Media X stimulates fundamental insights into innovation, helping accelerate successful outcomes. Media X research reduces risks for its member companies by providing cutting- edge knowledge on people and technology. Perspectives from the Stanford thought leaders provide ground-breaking insights and identify novel opportunities.
  3. 3. H-STAR HUMAN SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGIES ADVANCED RESEARCH INSTITUTE Media X Facts Media X catalyzes X-dept X-discipline research on IT and people questions, affiliated with HSTAR Institute 5 Professional Schools, all ranked in Top Ten Few other Universities have all 5, no other has 5 in Top Ten Draws on world class researchers across Stanford: Earth Sciences, Education, Engineering, Graduate School of Business, Humanities and Sciences, Law, Medicine Stanford sponsored research = ~$1B, ~$130M from industry 92 researchers and 150+ graduate students Founded in 2002, led by Silicon Valley’s Chuck House. Media X research is directed to issues that emerge from collaborative deliberations between our industry partners, H-STAR faculty and Media X leadership. Industry partners help select the actual projects and are invited to participate in the research.

  5. 5. MEDIA X RESEARCH THEMES HAVE INCLUDED COLLABORATION  Advanced human communication technologies. Exploring the fusion of virtual and physical worlds for advanced human communications.  Interactive technologies for social interaction and collaboration. Using interactive technology in social interaction and collaboration in productivity contexts, including synchronous and asynchronous uses of text, graphics, voice and video.  Use of mobile devices in collaboration. Researching mobile device-centric interactive technology used in collaboration in the context of multimedia. PARTICIPATION  Online media content. Evaluating consumers as publishers or establish ontologies of content.  Learning and training. Interactive technologies relating to learning and training, focusing on the integration of technology and an understanding of human psychology and social behavior to enhance understanding and performance. TECHNOLOGIES THAT ENABLE HUMAN-MACHINE INTERACTION  Human-machine interaction and sensing. Research on human-machine interaction and sensing that focuses on the detection or sensing of human-comprehension, emotional states, gestures or touch.  Ambient Intelligent Environments with sensing and control. The integration of technology and the understanding of human psychology and social behavior that can lead to new technologies that enable natural interaction with information and the physical world.  Emotion detection from video capture of facial expression. Enabling vehicles to automatically perceive driver emotions and determine the driver's alertness/fatigue in order to provide a reliable and actionable safety index. IMAGE, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE PROCESSESING  Natural language research: Basic and strategic research, training and technology transfer in speech and language processing.  Video processing, cataloging, retrieval, and reuse. Using interactive technologies related to video processing, cataloging, retrieval and reuse, with a view to the development of automated systems to support video libraries. FORM FACTORS  Mobile devices and alternative form factors. Researching mobile communication devices and services focusing on the device itself, the use cases for that device, the interface employed to render that device useful, and the connectivity opportunities and needs required to make that device part of the "connected" computing ecosystem.
