Getting started with HP Omnicept SDK


Session Description:

Get started developing with the HP Omnicept platform in this two-day workshop! Learn how to utilize the biometric sensors, Cognitive Load inference engine data and other HP enabled features to create adaptive VR experiences driven by a user's natural response in real time. In this workshop, you will complete a development project in Unity and hear from HP Labs research scientists on how cognitive load can be a powerful tool for virtual reality development. All attendees will receive a 90 day free trial (this is an exclusive extended trial for this AWE course) of the HP Omnicept SDK along with access to a hardware simulator to send sensor messages to your application.
