Analog tech gives continuous vision camera systems a selective memory

Researchers at Rice University are developing new camera technology that’s able to constantly watch its surroundings, but only pick out the information it’s told to. Known as RedEye, it works by focusing on analyzing analog imagery, allowing for drastically lower battery usage than conventional set-ups. The team set out with one goal in mind: to create camera technology capable of providing computers with continuous vision, allowing them to see constantly, just as we do. The researchers liken the potential of such technology to having a personal assistant with you at all times, remembering the people you met, where you’ve been, and much more. If that vision were to be fully realized, then it could revolutionize the booming wearable technology industry. In order to really provide that personal assistant-type experience, devices…
