SMI's Sneak Preview of Gaze Interaction at Siggraph 2014

BERLIN and TELTOW, Germany, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) reveals a lineup of smart gaze interaction demos at Siggraph. Visitors to SMI booth have more chances than ever to learn about the benefits of gaze interaction for gaming and computing first hand at the show. 

Smart and intuitive human-computer interaction, real-time content adaption and optimized use of rendering resources - these and more benefits can be experienced hands-on at the eye tracking demos presented by SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) at Siggraph in Vancouver, Canada (August 12-14, 2014, SMI booth 652).

The brand new action adventure game ILJA features the next-gen active gaze interaction allowing the gamers to turn, jump, select weapon, and shoot just by looking at the target. The game is powered by SMI's remote eye tracker RED-n which has been made available for OEMs earlier this month.

An interactive game in a head mounted display will be available for attendees who want the added thrill of aiming and shooting with their eyes as they wear the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. The headset demo has now been enhanced with a new and yet unannounced social interaction feature. The SMI eye tracking technology inside has been proven with more than 100,000 users and provides unmatched robustness.

Also debuting at Siggraph: The next generation of SMI's leading mobile eye tracking technology, SMI Eye Tracking Glasses 2 Wireless.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
