Google Research Award
The Loki's* researchers Mathieu Nancel (Inria) and Géry Casiez (Lille's University) just received a Google Research Award . The recipient's project of a Google Research Award receives financing and the advantage of access to Google tools, technologies, and expertise.
Real-time Latency Measure and Compensation in Interactive Systems
"End-to-end latency in interactive systems is detrimental to performance and usability, and comes from a combination of hardware and software delays. These delays are steadily addressed by hardware and software improvements, but at a decelerating pace. In parallel, short-term input prediction has shown promising results in recent years, in both research and industry, as an addition to these efforts.
However current prediction techniques assume a constant end-to-end latency and can only compensate small amounts of latency before starting to introduce negative side-effects. In addition, measuring end-to-end latency in real time without using hardware probes remains an open question. This project addresses these questions to contribute theoretical and empirical results together with practical tools."
