The “Extended-Personal Reality”: augmented recording and transmission of virtual senses through artificial-IntelligENCE


The EXPERIENCE project seeks to use virtual reality to enhance daily life by enabling new forms of social interaction and personal expression.

Published on 29 January 2021


In recent years, virtual reality (VR) has found more commercial applications and larger market share. However, VR still holds great potential to enhance interaction and expression. The EU-funded EXPERIENCE project seeks to use VR to enhance daily life by allowing brand new ways of social interaction and personal expression. It will develop the technology required to help users easily create and manipulate their own unique VR environments, significantly improving their virtual experiences. The EXPERIENCE technology will be incorporated for the first time into social platforms and will be combined with neural and cardiovascular signals - of those who make the virtual experience - adequately modulated and controlled by artificial intelligence systems. In short, it will be enough to wear viewers that incorporate special biosensors and you will be projected into the experience lived by someone else.

The goal is to bring VR into areas such as mental health treatment, entertainment and education, promoting VR as a means of significantly improving the human experience. This project will make real the complex interplay between multisensory perception, emotional responses, past experiences and future perspectives by also unraveling the mental representation of self in space and time.

ABOUT FETproactive

FET Proactive matures novel areas and themes by working towards structuring emerging communities and supporting the design and development of transformative research themes. Its focus is on novel areas that are not yet on the industry's research roadmaps, and builds up new interdisciplinary research communities around them. It makes the step from collaborations between a small number of researchers, to a cluster of activities that coherently address all aspects of a research theme and exchange results.
A proactive initiative serves as a reference ('lighthouse') for others to orient their work towards such a new area of research and innovation.
