Speaker and Short Course Presenter - Michael J. Murdoch
Color Appearance in Optical See-Through Augmented Reality
Optical see-through AR presents virtual objects to a user through a transparent display that blends them with the real-world environment. This developing technology promises new opportunities for telepresence, training, user interfaces, and more. However, the optical blending of AR with the background means the AR content can be distorted in color, brightness, and contrast.
Michael J. Murdoch is an Associate Professor and Director of the Munsell Color Science Laboratory at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he teaches topics including colorimetry, psychophysics, lighting, and imaging. He leads an NSF-funded research project on color appearance in augmented reality (AR) and also conducts research on displays and temporally dynamic LED lighting. He spent Fall 2023 as a Fulbright U.S. Scholar in Ghent, Belgium, collaborating on research with K.U. Leuven. Before coming to RIT, Mike worked for Kodak Research and Philips Research, developing color system models and human-centered designs for solid state lighting, LCD, and OLED display systems. He holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from Cornell, MS in Computer Science from RIT, and PhD in Human-Technology Interaction from Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands.

The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design.
Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.
