Jelle is a cognitive psychologist with a special in interest in XR, measuring technology and data science.
At Howest University of applied sciences he founded the Human Interface Technology lab (HITlab) in 2019.
In this lab he coordinates a multi-disciplinary team of educational specialists, psychologists, occupational therapists, game developers and AI engineers to build and investigate POCs of XR applications in different fields, from the fields of design & manufacturing to healthcare and education.
In 2021 Jelle co-founded the XRvalley.be, that tries to bring together the different stakeholders in XR in Belgium.
In his talk Jelle will introduce the vision behind HITlab and will explain how the combination of XR, measurement technology like eye-tracking, (neuro-)physiological measurements, etc. and data science will lead to new possibilities in developing impactful, smart, personalised and adaptive XR applications. This idea will be supported by focussing on ongoing projects.
