Ke Jing is a PhD student in the Department of Informatics at the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California-Irvine (UCI). Ke is interested in exploring ecological approaches in the design and development of Augmented Reality (AR) interactive systems and games. His current research proposes a new concept of “Affordance for Artificial Intelligence (AI)” and innovates new game mechanics and design that blends the digital and the physical worlds from the perspective of “Ecological Augmented Reality”.


Ke is a developer, user experience designer, and innovator in the field of AR. In his recent internship at OSRAM, he developed a location-based lighting commissioning application for electricians and lighting commissioners using AR and wireless technology. He implemented a real-world multiplayer witchcraft game Magia Transformo: The Dance of Transformation, with digitally enchanted costumes, spell-books, and props. It is presented at IndieCade, the world’s largest festival of independent games. As a builder, Ke is familiar with a variety of advanced technology in AR, Robotics, Computer Vision, AI, and Wireless Communication. Ke serves a Teaching Assistant at UCI for the Capstone Games course and the Project and Introduction courses of Human-Computer Interaction.
