SID Display Week 2014 San Diego

Eyetracking and Facial Recognition: Enabling Direct Interactivity

A little more than 10 years ago, the “Minority Report” display interaction seemed futuristic, but the capability of machines to use multiple methods to anticipate human expectations has arrived.

One of the primary ways in which we as humans communicate is through non-verbal interactive cues, such as using our eyes and facial expressions to react to events around us. There is an increasing focus on eyetracking and facial recognition (and even emotion recognition based on eye/facial reactions) that serve to enable enhanced interactivity with display devices. This session features some of the industry leaders in this enabling communications technology discipline.

Marty Shindler, always with an eye on the future, will moderate this exciting and forward thinking panel at the premier industry event related to display technology.

Panelists include:

Ian Fasel, Founder, Lead Developer – Emotient (Keynote and panelist)
Barbara Barclay, General Manager – Tobii
Keith Jackson, Director of Sales & Marketing – EyeTech Digital
Sune Alstrup Johansen, CEO – The Eye Tribe
