Sentire presents: Enhanced Sensing conference

"Enhanced sensing" is a conference aiming to create a frame for discussion on cognition and on human-technology interaction, particularly in relation to movement and sound. "Enhanced sensing" is a platform initiated by the Sentire project to exchange ideas and experiences. 


Sentire started as a performance series where proximity and touch events between the participants are transformed into sound, allowing a deep sensory experience. Sentire is now an ongoing cross-disciplinary research and it aims to develop an interactive sound system and a method that enhances cognitive sensory abilities of its users. Cognition is now considered a dynamic interplay of individual bodily and environmental processes, with the brain as a mediator of that interplay (Fuchs, 2011).

How can interactive technology (such as Sentire) contribute to this interplay and enhance human sensing? In which way can interactive technology develop cognitive sensory abilities? As part of our discussions, we are pleased to have different researchers who have experienced and investigated the work of Sentire with different approaches.  The result of these studies will be presented at the conference together with project and studies presentation selected within Enhanced sensing open-call.
