Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment

Dynamic difficulty adjustment is a video gaming term, that is applicable to VR gameworlds, educational questing worlds, and other locations where adventuring, or challenge is presented. Dynamic difficulty adjustment is the process of gauging a user?s capabilities according to surreptitious testing, then altering the elements of the challenge on the fly, to compensate ? adding puzzles, removing puzzles; perhaps dialling the AI?s competence up or down.

The aim being to give each participant the ideal challenge for them, so as to engage them. Not too easy, not too difficult.

High Dynamic Range Photography, and Use in Eye Emulation
H.D.R., or high dynamic range photography is a relatively new technique used by photographers to take high-quality full lighting range photos that are near-indistinguishable from paintings, for their ability to correctly replicate the lighting of a given scene, exactly how the human eye would see it.



Surprisingly, whilst a great deal has been written about device implantation and adjustment, very little has been penned about how these patients should be dealt with, post operation, in living with their prosthesis. That gap is where this tome comes in. It tries to fill the void gap by providing an in-depth analysis of practices for managing patients from a slew of case studies from experts around the globe. Helping to show what works and what does not.
