Researcher, Senior Research Fellow Institute of Educational Technology, The Open University, United Kingdom

Dr Fridolin Wild is Professor at the Institute of Educational Technology, leading the Performance Augmentation Lab (PAL) of the Open University. With his research and development, Fridolin seeks to close the dissociative gap between abstract knowledge and its practical application, researching radically new forms of linking directly from knowing something ‘in principle’ to applying that knowledge ‘in practice’ and speeding its refinement and integration into polished performance.

With augmented reality and wearables, it is possible to embed knowledge directly into what people experience, enriching the world beyond the visible to allow the creation of novel and powerful forms of feedback on performance. It is PAL’s mission to create the new new interface and extend the performance-relevance of HCI, research mixed reality interactive content, and establish interoperability in order to improve user experience and human performance, while at the same time lowering entry barriers and providing safe routes for R&D investment. We pilot novel experience capturing technology and human performance analytics with real-time applications to respond to the open knowledge and innovation challenges of the 21st century with increased immediacy, utility, and accuracy.
