The Augmented Reality Through Wearable Technology For Sensory Impairments Applications is a joint project of KAUST and EFFat University, Saudi Arabia.
Thre students from Effat niversity, Noor Bafageeh, Asmaa El-Khatib, Omniah Hasanain, developed a smart system that visually recognizes common objects and identifies them adding extra information retrieved from Internet.
The research project was designed and supervised by Prof. Bernard Ghanem, from KAUST, and by Prof. Hayssam Dahrouj, Effat University and KAUST visiting professor.
The project was presented at the Conference on Computational Imaging and Visualization (CIV) that explored the interface of Computational Imaging (i.e. the joint design of new imaging hardware and algorithms to capture and encode information), and Visualization (i.e. the generation of visual representations for scientific and other datasets). The focus of this conference has been on new methods and applications for computational imaging and scientific visualization in science, engineering, and medicine.
KAUST CIV is an exciting opportunity to get together with visual computing experts from KAUST and abroad. The conference features a series of internationally renowned keynotes speakers, invited talks by faculty and researchers from KAUST, universities world-wide, and industry, as well as student poster sessions. Bringing renowned experts in the field of visual computing to one spot, KAUST CIV offeres engaging talks and plenty of room for discussions as well as the opportunity to meet in person with people who excel in their field, be it in academia or industry.
