Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions the Advanced Augmented Reality course will be organised online. The course will run on Code Reality: Learn, April 19-24 2020.
The advanced course follows the software development cycle from inception, to implementation, to validation. For this, and at first, design thinking and user experience guidelines, as well as advanced story-telling teach creative tools and methods for outlining and substantialising the AR application idea. Computational thinking and performance profiling lectures equip students with the required theory and practice for building AR applications. The implementation focused technologies advance from the foundational course to cover now spatial understanding (on top of spatial mapping), abstraction for cross-platform/multi-user/multi-device support, artificial intelligence dialogue understanding, open CV foundations, wearable technology and making things talk, and volumetric video capture. Finally, evaluating AR introduces the methodologies available for verifying and validating applications.
Insights into specialist application areas and job perspectives will help sharpen your skillset.
As part of the course, students will be tasked with designing, developing, and evaluating their own Augmented Reality application. Assessment will be made and grades will be based on an interdisciplinary team project, ideally bringing together students of the Computer Sciences with students in Arts and Media.
The Advanced Augmented Reality Course will be piloted as an intensive online training event hosted by Code Reality https://codereality.net/learn/. The training modules are designed and will be delivered by trainers from Code Reality partner universities.
The course is open to undergraduate and graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, post-doctoral researchers, and academic as well as industrial researchers.
You benefit from the course if you already know:
fundamentals of Augmented Reality (e.g., Basic Augmented Reality course by Code Reality)
some basic mathematical and programming skills (Python, Java, C or C++, Unity programming or equivalent)
fundamentals of algorithms and data structures
linear algebra, especially with respect to 3D transformations
some basic 3D computer graphics
fundamentals of media, communications or marketing
The skills and knowledge listed above are not obligatory to enrol to the course.
Cost of the course
We introduced a registration fee mostly to cover the cost of the coffee breaks and lunches. All participants have to cover yourself the cost of travel and accommodation. The academic program of the course is provided free of charge. However, the registration fee is mandatory.
Advanced Augmented Reality Course on 19–24 April 2020: 5600 Rub (~80 Eur)
Augmented Reality Hackathon on 25–26 April 2020: 2100 Rub (~30 Eur)
Package Course+Hackathon: 7000 Rub (~100 Eur)
Information on the exact location of the training event in St. Petersburg and recommendations for accommodation and travel will be added soon.
Application deadline: 5 April 2020
