Résumé : 

In this seminar, I will describe our vision in wearable vision computing (WVC) : how networked wearable cameras can capture our visual experience (memory) and augment human in vision-related tasks for broad applications such as assisted living, learning, surveillance and diagnostics. We show some preliminary results of a wearable visual assistant prototype on indoor navigation and social networking with a video demo and list research challenges and plan forward. Before presenting WVC, I will briefly introduce IPAL (CNRS 2955), a French-Singapore joint lab, Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), A*STAR, and the Visual Computing Department within I2R.
