Best Demo Award at the IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom’18)

CMI’s Sokol Kosta in collaboration with Jiayu Shu, Rui Zheng, and Pan Hui from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), won the Best Demo Award at the IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom’18), Athens, Greece, March 19-23, 2018. PerCom is one of the toughest conferences in the areas of pervasive computing and communications.

In this demo, the authors have presented Talk2Me, an augmented reality social network framework that enables users to disseminate information in a distributed way and view others’ information instantly. Talk2Me advertises users’ messages, together with their face–signature, to every nearby device in a Device–to–Device fashion. When a user looks at nearby persons through her camera–enabled wearable devices (e.g., Google Glass), the framework automatically extracts the face–signature of the person of interest, compares it with the previously captured signatures, and presents the information shared by this person to the user.

Title: “Demo - Talk2Me: A Framework for Device–to–Device Augmented Reality Social Network”.
