The Seeing Computer


Ofelia da Silva Zaragoza Malheiros

Human being and computer take yet another step closer to one another. A video camera records images of the visitor, and these images are digitized and analyzed in realtime.

In this way, the computer is capable of registering a specific face and steering the camera in such a way that it can follow the movements of a person sitting or standing in front of the monitor. The process of controlling a computer by means of spoken commands is now being perfected little by little; soon, the computer will be able to see and react to gestures as well.
