2008 Poster Sessions : Eyepatch: Prototyping Camera-based Interaction through Examples

Student Name : Dan Maynes-Aminzade
Advisor : Terry Winograd
Research Areas: Graphics/HCI
Abstract
Eyepatch is a rapid prototyping tool designed to simplify the process of developing computer vision applications. Eyepatch allows novice programmers to create, test, and refine their own customized computer vision classifiers by providing visual examples from recorded video. Using Eyepatch, application developers can easily extract useful data from live video and stream that data to other rapid prototyping tools, without writing any specialized code.
