Gender-Triggered Advertising: Embedded Vision-Based Chastising

Back in early January, I told you about a vending machine that refused to dispense pudding samples if it discerned that a child was standing in front of it. Now, courtesy of TechCrunch, comes word of a digital billboard that via "facial recognition software with an HD camera" will only display a promotional clip if …

Analyzing Twins: A Challenging Data Set For Facial Recognition Algorithms

Back in mid-August, I mentioned the Twin Days Festival held each year in Twinburg, Ohio, and (perhaps not surprising to you at this point) attended by identical twins around the world. Researchers from the University of Notre Dame also regularly attend the Twin Days Festival, capturing images of those identical twins and using those photographs …

Kinect Built Into the PC: Prototypes Suggest Inevitability

Two days from now, the PC-tailored and "close view"-supportive variant of Microsoft's Kinect will reportedly be available for sale. I've suspected ever since hearing the initial news of Microsoft's PC aspirations that the company's plans included not only a USB-tethered peripheral for existing systems but also a bezel-embedded Kinect version licensed to computer OEMs for …

Kinect for Windows’ “Close Mode”: Firmware Seemingly Carries The Full Load

Two weeks ago, when I first wrote about Microsoft's upcoming Kinect for Windows, I wondered how substantially it'd differ from the Xbox 360-intended model, and whether the changes would reflect evolution in software, hardware or both. Shortly-thereafter coverage in Wired indicated: The Kinect for Windows unit also offers a modified USB connector and better protection …

Camera Cognition: Finally, True Facial Recognition

Every time I discuss the topics of "facial recognition" and "digital cameras" in the same breath, Jeff Bier validly corrects me. That's because while cameras nowadays commonly do facial detection, i.e. identifying people in a scene and adjusting exposure, focus and other settings to optimize their digital image reproduction, they don't identify specific individuals… …until …

A Living Room (Embedded) Vision: Samsung Brings Image Sensors To The Television

The persistent rumors of an impending Apple-branded television (likely integrating, among other things, the functionality of today's standalone Apple TV STB) seemingly has other consumer electronics manufacturers motivated to get out in front of the folks at One Infinite Loop, judging from the news coming out of Las Vegas. Although Logitech's Google TV experiment wasn't …

Microsoft Kinect’s Increasingly Upbeat Fate: Sales, Hardware And Software Updates

Steve Ballmer's CES-officially-opening keynote is under way as I type this, but thanks to the liveblogs of folks such as Engadget and The Verge (not to mention the Microsoft-served live video stream), I'm able to keep up even though I'm not in attendance in Las Vegas. One tidbit that I just saw is particularly relevant …

Apple’s iOS: Embedded Vision Developments

Back in late October, I mentioned a number of filed-and-granted Apple patents related to embedded vision. Following in the footsteps of Google and Nokia            , the company has registered patent protection for a facial recognition-based system login scheme (at least according to 9to5Mac, Cult of Mac, Engadget, MacRumors, The Unofficial Apple Weblog, and VentureBeat). Next …
