TALK: Person-centered location based computing
At the Speech + Mobility group in the Media Lab we have been building person-centered location systems for over a decade. These systems deal with location in terms that relate to our travelling habits and shared knowledge of landmarks, rather than street maps, such as "at the grocery store", "on the way to work", or "I'll be home in 10 minutes." This talk will survey the location-based systems for which we have built prototypes. Such systems can help us manage shopping, mind children, share location with family or others, make our commutes more pleasant, and perhaps help us keep our spending under control.
Chris Schmandt is a Principal Research Scientist at MIT's Media Laboratory, where he is serving life without parole after first being incarcerated in 1978. He currently directs the Speech + Mobility Group, and has been building applications and user interfaces for speech, audio, and telephony since the early 1980s.
