Toward Continuous Mobile Vision
Sharing what we see with computers will open the door for novel services that are both personalized and crowd-powered. We envision a wearable system captures what we see, hear and sense continuously in our daily life and feeds it to third-party applications that may run in the cloud. In this talk, we show that todayís system software and imaging hardware, highly optimized for photography, are fundamentally ill-suited for this. We present a rethinking of the imaging pipeline toward realizing continuous mobile vision. We also discuss ensuing challenges and opportunities in the cloud as well as the telecom infrastructure that connects it with the end users.
