Conclusion

It is now possible to track people's motion, identify them by facial appearance, and recognize their actions in real time using only modest computational resources. By using this perceptual information we have been able to build smart rooms and smart clothes that have the potential to recognize people, understand their speech, allow them to control computer displays without wires or keyboards, communicate by sign language, and warn them they are about to make a mistake. We imagine eventually building a world where the distinction between inanimate and animate objects begins to blur, and the objects that surround us become more like helpful assistants or playful pets than insensible tools.
