Coming up with a product that utilized recent advances in the field of Computer Vision and our expertise in Google Glass Augmented Reality(AR) for improving lives of people with Dementia.
What it does
The patients affected by mild dementia and Alzheimer find difficulty in recalling the names, faces of people, the current time, and the location. Our Augmented Reality based solution helps patients to identify faces of people they have met in past by tagging it with the location and the time.
How I built it
We used Snapdragon Qualcomm Face Recognition SDK for developing the face recognition application. Add a person,update a person's pic, identify a person, Android based phone location and current date and time constantly updating.
Challenges I ran into
Finding the correct library for facial recognition and developing the infrastructure. Setting up the facial recognition system utilizing the phone’s hardware was challenging.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Having a great team. Making the facial recognition system working and implementing core features.
What I learned
Learned a lot about dementia patient's life experience Focused approach on building core features is really helpful in getting things done quickly rather than focusing on add-on features.
