Course Overview | 교과목개요

가상현실(VR)은 실제 또는 가상의 환경을 모방하고 사용자가 물리적 존재감과 환경을 상호 작용할 수 있는 방식으로 모방하는 컴퓨터 기술입니다. 가상현실은 시각, 촉각, 청각, 후각, 미각을 포함한 감각적 경험을 인공적으로 만들어냅니다.

이 과정은 학생들에게 VR의 기본에 대한 깊은 이해를 제공하고 실용적인 경험을 얻는 것을 목표로 합니다. VR은 우리의 감각을 인공적인 자극에 노출시킴으로써 우리의 뇌를 속이기 때문에 효율적이고 편안한 VR 시스템을 설계하고 테스트하는 것은 어렵습니다. 컴퓨터 그래픽, 추적 시스템, 인체 생리학, 지각 심리학 등 다양한 관련 주제의 지식을 결합하여 이러한 어려움을 해결할 것입니다. 추가로, 학생들은 다양한 메타버스를 경험하고 Blender(https://www.blender.org/) 또는 Unity 3D(https://unity3d.com/)와 같은 프리웨어 소프트웨어를 배울 수 있는 기회를 가질 수 있습니다.

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer technology that imitates a real or imaginary environment and simulates a user’s physical presence and environment in a way that allows the user to interact with it. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experiences, including sight, touch, hearing, smell, and taste. 

This course aims to provide students with a deep understanding of the fundamentals of VR and to gain practical experience. It is challenging to design and test VR systems that are both efficient and comfortable since VR tricks our brains by exposing our senses to artificial stimuli. This course will combine knowledge from various relevant topics, including computer graphics, tracking systems, human body physiology, and perceptual psychology, to meet these challenges. Additionally, students can get a chance to learn freeware software such as Blender (https://www.blender.org/) or Unity 3D (https://unity3d.com/), as well as experience many different metaverses.

Frequency Dictionary | 빈도 사전

Assignments for Korean students will include a frequency dictionary. Prof. Ziatdinov believes that "studying a frequency dictionary for each forthcoming lecture will lead to a better understanding of the lecture content and improve learners' language skills."
