10:30 a.m. Creating Sound – More Than Current Sound Effects
UNC Computer scientists and PhD students in UNC’s GAMMA group, hope to mimic real sound creation and the way sound travels through space. More than just reproducing how someone hears a sound, they can help the listener decide if the sound is creeping up from behind or swishing by from the side. Their technology and research are so advanced that they have attracted the attention of Disney, Intel, Samsung, Arup and the U.S. Army, among others.
