Being There: Sensor Data to Sensory Superpowers

Gershon Dublon
TEDxWarwick 2014

Gershon Dublon is a PhD student in the Responsive Environments at the MIT Media Lab, where he develops new tools for exploring and understanding sensor data. In his research, he imagines networked sensors forming a collective electronic nervous system that becomes prosthetic through new interfaces to sensory perception—visual, auditory, and tactile. These interfaces can be located both on the body and in the surrounding environment. Gershon received a MS in Media Arts and Science from MIT and a BS in electrical engineering from Yale University. Before coming to MIT, he worked as a researcher at the Embedded Networks and Applications Lab at Yale, contributing to research in sensor fusion for tracking and identifying people.
