BLUE EYES

INTRODUCTION Is it possible to create a computer which can interact with us as we interact each other? For example imagine in a fine morning you walk on to your computer room and switch on your computer, and then it tells you Hey friend, good morning you seem to be a bad mood today!. And then it opens your mail box and shows you some of the mails and tries to cheer you. It seems to be a fiction, but it will be the life lead by BLUE EYES in the very near future. The basic idea behind this technology is to give the computer the human power. We all have some perceptual abilities. That is we can understand each others feelings. For example we can understand ones emotional state by analyzing his facial expression. If we add these perceptual abilities of human to computers would enable computers to work together with human beings as intimate partners. The BLUE EYES technology aims at creating computational machines that have perceptual and sensory ability like those of human beings. How can we make computers "see" and "feel"?Blue Eyes uses sensing technology to identify a user's actions and to extract key information. This information is then analyzed to determine the user's physical, emotional, or informational state, which in turn can be used to help make the user more productive by performing expected actions or by providing expected information. For example, in future a Blue Eyes-enabled television could become active when the user makes eye contact, at which point the user could then tell the television to "turn on". This paper is about the hardware, software, benefits and interconnection of various parts involved in the blue eye technology. BLUE EYES BlueEyes technology is able to track a person's pupils. Therefore, if a driver closes his or her eyes for too long, the TechMobile sounds an alarm. Developed at IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, the BlueEyes project leverages multimodal ways of interacting with computers or in the future a car or ordinary household devices. BlueEyes leverages sensing technology to identify and observe a user's actions, and to extract key information, such as where the user is looking or what the user is communicating through both eyes and touch. Aims at creating computational machines that have perceptual and sensory ability. Use camera and microphone to identify user actions and emotions . THE TERM BLUE EYES The term blue eyes: BLUE in the term stands for Bluetooth, which enables reliable wireless communication EYES , because the eye movement enables us to obtain a lot of interesting and important information. NEED OF BLUE EYES TECHNOLOGY To built a machine that can understand your emotions A pc that can listen, talk or scream Verify your identity, feels your presence and interact with you is the need of blue eyes technology.

TECHNOLGIES USED Emotion Mouse Manual And Gaze Input Cascaded (MAGIC) Artificial Intelligent Speech Recognition Simple User Interest Tracker (SUITOR) are the technologies used. GAZE INPUT

The eyes have it:logo from GAZE ENCHANCED USER INTERFACE DESIGN(GUIDe).The project goal is to use the information of the person is looking at,in order to develop interacting of computer systems easier..

EMOTION MOUSE

EXPERIMENT Measurement of heart rate, temperature, galvanic skin response (GSR), general somatic activity Heart rate was measured with chest strap sensor, temperature with thermocouple attached to a digital multimeter (DMM), GSR also with DMM, somatic movement with computer mouse movements Six basic emotions are anger, fear, sadness, disgust, joy and surprise ADVANTAGES OF EMOTION MOUSE 1)It can easily adapt to your mood 2)it performs the task at the moment you tell it to do 3)helps to gather more information 4)saves time than using of cursor. MAGIC POINTING To dynamically redefine the home position of the pointing cursor to be at the close vicinity of the target Reduce the cursor movement needed for target selection Click on the target with a regular manual input device Two magic pointing techniques Liberal Conservative Improvement over the traditional eye gaze system Reduce physical effort

and fatigue, greater accuracy and naturalness and faster speed than traditional eye gaze system MAGIC POINTING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGIENT SPEECH RECOGNITION Input words are scanned and matched against internally stored words Identification causes some action to be taken User speaks to the computer through microphone Filtered and fed to ADC and then stored in RAM Binary representation become standard , against which future are compared pattern matching is designed to look for the best fit because of variations in loudness, pitch, frequency difference, time gap etc. APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGIENT SPEECH RECOGNITION To control weapons by voice commands Pilot give commands to computers by speaking into microphones For making airline and hotel reservations For making reservations, canceling reservations or making enquiries Can be connected to word processors and instead of writing, simply dictate to them . SUITOR Help by fetching more information at desktop Notice where the users eyes focus on the screen Fills a scrolling ticker on a computer screen with information related to users task Ex. If reading headline ,pops up the story in the browser window BLUE EYES ENABLED DEVICES POD Technology used in cars PONG A Robot APPLICATIONS BLUE EYES technology can be used : In retailing record and interpret customer movements In automobile industry In video games To create Face Responsive Display and Perceptive Environment CONCLUSION Provide more delicate and user friendly facilities in computing devices Gap between the electronic and physical world is reduced The computers can be run using implicit commands instead of the explicit commands
