The Novel Perception project seeks to enhance users’ awareness of the world through naturalistic access to sources of information beyond the basic human senses. The system collects signals from a variety of sensors, synchronizes them in real time, registers them in real space, and then overlays them onto the real world by display though a mixed-reality headset. The NP team has implemented social, thermal, and hyperspectral overlays; next they plan to develop physiological, radiological/nuclear, and radio frequency overlays. The volume and velocity of the data streaming from these additional sensor modalities may be overwhelming, so a next objective is to leverage artificial intelligence and brain-computer interfaces to sculpt the deluge per the tasks at hand.
