A Wearable Digital Library of Personal Conversations
journal contributionposted on 1987-01-01, 00:00 authored by Wei-Hao Lin, Alexander Hauptmann
We have developed a wearable, personalized digital library system, which unobtrusively records the wearer's part of a conversation, recognizes the face of the current dialog partner and remembers his/her voice. The next time the system sees the same person and hears the same voice, it can replay parts of the last conversation in compressed form. Results from a prototype system show the effectiveness of combining of face recognition and speaker identification for retrieving conversations.
