OpenFace: A General-purpose Face Recognition Library with Mobile Applications

Cameras are becoming ubiquitous in the Internet of Things (IoT) and can use face recognition technology to improve context. There is a large accuracy gap between today’s publicly available face recognition systems and the state-of-the-art private face recognition systems. This paper presents our OpenFace face recognition library that bridges

An Open Ecosystem for Mobile-Cloud Convergence

We show how a disruptive force in mobile computing can be created by extending today's unmodified cloud to a second level consisting of self-managed data centers with no hard state called cloudlets. These are located at the edge of the Internet, just one wireless hop away from associated mobile devices.

Towards Wearable Cognitive Assistance

We describe the architecture and prototype implementation of an assistive system based on Google Glass devices for users in cognitive decline. It combines the first-person image capture and sensing capabilities of Glass with remote processing to perform real-time scene interpretation. The system architecture is multi-tiered. It offers tight end-to-end latency

The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing

Mobile computing continuously evolve through the sustained effort of many researchers. It seamlessly augments users' cognitive abilities via compute-intensive capabilities such as speech recognition, natural language processing, etc. By thus empowering mobile users, we could transform many areas of human activity. This article discusses the technical obstacles to these transformations
