Shaoyu Cai 蔡紹禹
Shaoyu Cai is a Ph.D candidate under the supervision of Prof. Kening Zhu from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. He was a visiting researcher at Graduate of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo (2020) and working closely with Prof. Takuji Narumi and Prof. Yuki Ban. His research objective is to explore how to develop “touchable” computer interfaces to enable people to have physical interaction in the virtual world. He strongly believes haptic interaction can provide greater benefit and experience to users in extended reality (XR) environments, including virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR). His research interest lies in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with emphasis on cross-modal generation (e.g., from vision to touch), data-driven texture modeling and rendering, and haptic interface for VR and AR.
