  3. 3. Introduction• The BLUE EYES project was started at IBMs Almaden Research Centre in USA.• It aims at giving computers highly developed abilities to perceive, integrate and interpret visual, auditory and touch information.• The BLUE EYES project aims at creating computers, which can adapt to humans and thus enable them to operate much more conveniently. BlueEyes Technology 3
  4. 4. What BlueEyes is not?• Doesn’t predict nor interfere with operator’s thoughts.• Cannot force directly the operator to work.• How was the term blue-eyes coined? Blue in this term stands for Bluetooth, which enables reliable wireless communication and the Eyes because the eye movement enables us to obtain a lot of interesting and important information. BlueEyes Technology 4
  5. 5. PRESENT• Animal survival depends on highly developed sensory abilities.• human cognition depends on highly developed abilities to perceive, integrate, and interpret visual, auditory, and touch information. BlueEyes Technology 5
  6. 6. • Without a doubt, computers would be much more powerful if they had even a small fraction of the perceptual ability of animals or humans.• Adding such perceptual abilities to computers would enable computers and humans to work together more as partners.• Toward this end, the BlueEyes project aims at creating computational devices with the sort of perceptual abilities that people take for granted. BlueEyes Technology 6
  7. 7. Emotions• Since emotions are the key issue in blue eye we need to define and classify emotions.What are emotions?• Are the response to the different situations we experiment in our environment and they play an important role in the decision-making process and solving problems as well.Emotions have two components:1. Mental component (cognitive)2. Physical component (body) BlueEyes Technology 7
  8. 8. Classification of Emotions Occurred as a direct consequence EMOTIONS of encountering some kind of event. Cause a detectable physical response in the body: PRIMARY Fear a heightened heartbeat, increased “flinch” response, and increased and muscle tension. Anger based on sensation, seems indistinguishable from fear. SECONDARY Happiness is often felt as an expansive or swelling feeling in the chest and the sensation of lightness or buoyancy,Can be caused Sadness feeling of tightness in the throat anddirectly by primary eyes, and relaxation in the arms and legs.emotions or come Shame can be felt as heat in the upper chest andfrom a cognitive face.process Desire can be accompanied by a dry throat, heavy breathing, and increased heart rate. ex. EmbarrassmentAntonio Damasio (1994) BlueEyes Technology 8

  10. 10. How can we make computers "see" and "feel"?• BlueEyes uses sensing technology to identify a users actions and to extract key information. This information is then analyzed to determine the users physical, emotional, or informational state, which in turn can be used to help make the user more productive by performing expected actions or by providing expected information.• For example, a BlueEyes-enabled television could become active when the user makes eye contact, at which point the user could then tell the television to "turn on".

  15. 15. Applications• We can classify applications of blue eyes and affective computing into five categories mainly, which are: – Security. – Education. – Health and Medicine. – Military. – Home BlueEyes Technology 15
  16. 16. Applications Security: Emotions can be reliable in term of security.Examples:1. Smart Cameras.2. Lie detectors.3. Emotional Speech processing. BlueEyes Technology 16
  17. 17. Applications Education: Knowing the emotional feedback of learners enhance teaching styles.Examples:1. Electronic Tutoring.2. E-Learning.3. Text-to-speech applications. BlueEyes Technology 17
  18. 18. Applications Health and Medicine : Knowing the emotions of patients helps in the treatment.Examples:1. Measuring the affects of medicines.2. Helping people with mental Illness. BlueEyes Technology 18
  19. 19. Applications Military : To have devices with emotional intelligence.Examples:1. Training equipment.2. Simulation systems. BlueEyes Technology 19
  20. 20. Applications Home : To have devices with emotional intelligence.Examples:1. Video Games.2. Delivering emotions in communication.3. Toys. BlueEyes Technology 20
  21. 21. • We are now poised to imagine a worldAt last-- where computing objects communicate with us in-situ; where we are. • We use our looks, feelings, and actions to give the computer the experience it needs to work with us. • Keyboards and mouse will not continue to dominate computer user interfaces. • Sensors are gaining fidelity and ubiquity to record presence and actions; sensors will notice when we enter a space, sit down, lie down, pump iron, etc. • Pervasive infrastructure is recording it.
