On September 11, 2013 in Santa Clara at Qualcomm, SVForum Digital Media SIG Chair Bob Ketner introduced Matt Haines, the Developer Community Manager at Imp. Haines talked about how Imp can make designing “The Internet Of Things” easier.

May 9, 2012 ARE 2012 Bob Ketner And Chris Stapleton

On Wednesday May 9, 2012, the Santa Clara Convention Center hosted the Augmented Reality Event (ARE 2012). Two talks focused on Experiential AR, showing the new strategies and technologies for museums. Bob Ketner of The Tech Museum presented “Ubiquitous: A Platform for AR Experiences” and Christopher Stapleton of Simiosys presented “Applied Research Experiential Media Firm – Phydgital InterSpaces redefining Spatial Augmented Reality interfaces for Social Interaction.”

The talks were part of the growing trend toward a productive conversation between speakers and audience. I learned as much from the attendees as the speakers. I saw cutting edge technology that will make my life much easier. The art on display was unlike anything I had seen before.

On August 24, 2009 in Palo Alto at Pillsbury Winthrop, SDForum’s Augmented SIG hosted Nokia’s research and developers to talk about augmentation technology. Ramakrishna Vendantham demonstrated how a Nokia N95 can recognize a music CD cover. Kari Pulli and Radek Grzeszczuk talked about software that will not only recognize products with bar codes and labels but buildings and faces. They showed how an experimental visor can track eye movement and then zoom in on whatever you focus on. Combined with GPS and publicly available information it helps people navigate around cities. This would great for the visually impaired or people who get lost easily. Text from DJ Cline.com

All of this depends on a cell phone’s camera finding enough data points to compare with an existing database of images. The problem is that the database is usually not in the phone but must be accessed over a network. They combine several recognition strategies and database trees to create a “forest” that finds results fast over an existing network. The result is a technology that literally see the forest for the trees.
