Brain and cognitive sciences Most recent advances in artificial intelligence — such as mobile apps that convert speech to text — are the result of machine learning, in which computers are turned loose on huge data sets to look for patterns. To make machine-learning applications easier to build, computer scientists have begun developing so-called probabilistic programming languages, which let researchers mix and match machine-learning techniques that have worked well in other contexts.

We propose a rule-based frame- ever, creating an application which truly integrates with the envi- work for generating object layouts for AR applications.
Under ronment, embedding virtual objects among real physical objects is our framework, the developer of an AR application specifies a set much more complex.
First, the layout of vir- ing the inter-relationships of application components and scene- tual objects must be consistent with the placement of other virtual consistency application components are consistent with the phys- objects, as well as with the geometry of the physical environment ical environment they are placed in.
When a user enters a new they are placed in. For example, an application might require that environment, we create, in real-time, a layout for the application, two elements be placed within two feet of each other, but also that which is consistent with the defined constraints as much as possi- both be placed on an elevated horizontal surface.
Second, a user ble. We find the optimal configurations for each object by solving might deploy several applications in the same environment, all of a constraint-satisfaction problem. Our stochastic move making al- which must be laid out successfully without interfering with each gorithm is domain-aware, and allows us to efficiently converge to other.
Finally, several users might be collaborating using an AR ap- a solution for most rule-sets. In the paper we demonstrate several plication in a shared environment, further complicating the layout augmented reality applications that automatically adapt to different of the application elements.
