The EU2014 conference on The Empowerment of the Next Generation of Researchers “Promoting talents, spreading excellence” took place in the MUSE, Trento, from 18 to 19 November 2014 and was organised by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research in collaboration with the Autonomous Province of Trento.
The updated version of the VENTURI AR city technology demonstrator was shown by Lorenzo Porzi and Manuel Aravecchia. There was a great deal of interest from the attendees of the event who enjoyed playing with the virtual car inside the model city.

Between the 21th and 24th April 2014, Håkan Jonsson from Sony presented a VENTURI related paper at the 9th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and In-formation Processing (IEEE ISSNIP 2014), in Singapore. Håkan presented his paper on “A comparison of two proximity networks” in the Symposium on Human- Centric Sensing and Social Networks. The paper presents a comparative analysis of two different prox-imity networks (Memorit and MIT Reality Mining), drawing conclusions on how well they capture real life social context.

VENTURI Kick-off

October 26th, 2011 No comments

On the 13th and 14th of October 2011 the kick-off meeting for the VENTURI project was held at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy. The meeting was an opportunity for all of the partners to get to know one another and meet face-to-face to discuss the project’s goals and challenges.

Over the two days, there was a great deal of enthusiasm and a sense of excitment. We see the challenges laid out in VENTURI, i.e making Augmented Reality a reality for everyone, as being cutting edge issues that could really have a large impact on peoples lives. In addition to our partnership with the French and German Institutes for the blind, whom will help us to explore 3D audio AR, we will also dive into AR topics like navigation, tourism guide and gaming.

To summarise, we all went away from the meeting as a VENTURI team sharing the same vision.
