Abstract:

The Human Machine Interaction Laboratory (HMI Lab) was established in 2008 with the goal of focusing on research and development of methodologies, methods, and techniques to help humans and machines work together efficiently. Up to now, HMI Lab has been implementing over 15 research and applied projects funded from Vietnamese government and domestic and foreign enterprises. Typically, HMI Lab has completed projects “High Dimensional Heterogeneous Data based Animation Techniques for Southeast Asian Intangible Cultural Heritage Digital Content (ANIAGE), 2016-2019” funded by European Commission (Horizon 2020), “Multimedia application tools for intangible cultural heritage conservation, 2016-2018” funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, and “AI-based application for 3D-model restoration of Vietnamese and Korean cultural heritage, 2021-2024” bilateral funded by Vietnam (MOST) and Korea (MSICT). In this talk, I will present some of our results from these projects. The results regard our digitization work for Vietnamese cultural heritages (tangible, intangible, and documentary) and the ICT applications we have built up on the digitalized cultural data.
