People near the site of the first bomb blast (credit: Aaron “tango” Tang/Wikimedia Commons) Experts say the FBI may be able to use other images from the scene of Monday’s bomb attacks in Boston.— together with facial recognition software — to search through identity databases. The approach is likely to become more common in the future as new technology makes using facial recognition on surveillance and bystander imagery more reliable, MIT Technology Review reports .
This year I.B.M dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors. Digital sensors of the touch , sight , hearing , taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by I.B.M. Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.
Google's Patent Background Wearable systems can integrate various elements, such as miniaturized computers, input devices, sensors, detectors, image displays, wireless communication devices as well as image and audio processors, into a device that can be worn by a user.
Smartphones may be invading pockets and purses across the world, but AOptix may soon bring those mobile devices to some far-flung war zones. The Campbell, Calif.
British soldiers are testing out tiny 4×1-inch mini surveillance drones throughout Afghanistan.
Watch a short trailer www.TechJect.com Our prototypes have gone through multiple design cycles.
Microsoft has been working with large scale multi-touch displays for some time now.
Nous nous doutons que vous ne vous posez pas tous les jours cette question , mais vous êtes-vous déjà demandé quelle est la partie de votre cerveau qui s’active quand vous pensez à telle ou telle chose ? Cette petite application en ligne est une véritable mine d’informations.
Voice recognition usually applies to communication only in the most utilitarian sense, whether it's to translate on the spot or to keep those hands on the wheel while sending a text message. Samsung has just been granted a US patent that would convey how we're truly feeling through visuals instead of leaving it to interpretation of audio or text.
A recently published Samsung patent application has revealed a new air-gesturing invention that could supplement or eliminate the need to actually touch a display in order to control its functionality.
La reconnaissance faciale n’est pas encore exactement au point, mais Samsung réfléchit au progrès. En effet, la firme coréenne vient de déposer un brevet qui permettra de retranscrire les émotions du locuteur à l’écran et de les faire comprendre à la machine.
June 5th, 2012 by: Range It’s not always easy staying motivated when you train alone. This is one of the reasons why I find the Joggobot interesting. It’s kind of like a robotic coach, that follows you around as you run. Based on the AR.Drone, the hovering Joggobot quadrotor will attract stares and looks from fellow runners, but it’s certainly easier to keep pace if your smartphone or GPS isn’t enough to keep you motivated.
