How Mixed Reality Could “Profoundly” Change the World

December 26, 2017

Mixed reality is set to make a huge impact on people’s lives. IEEE Member and USC ICT’s Director of Advanced Prototype Development Todd Richmond explains how he researches the way this technology will change the way things are done across industries.

“Mixed reality is going to profoundly change our world,” says Richmond. Cheddar Anchor Alyssa Julya Smith explores the autonomous drone lab inside USC. Richmond says this lab is looking to understand the relationship between humans and autonomous objects.

The drones are trained to follow the people controlling them. A big question looking into the future of autonomous objects is the ability for humans to trust the technology. Richmond says the project at USC looks at how to build interactions between machines and humans to advance command and control.
