The aim of the blue eyes technology is to give human power or abilities to a computer. Machine can naturally interact with human beings as we interact with each other. Main objective of Blue eyes technology is to develop a computational machine having sensory and perceptual ability like those of humans. It is almost impossible to measure the advancement of technology, it is not because there is no measuring device for it, but it is because of its immense pace with which it is moving forward. It is just because of this high-end technology that computers can now interact with us. Computers can talk, listen and feel our presence with the help of various technologies like face recognition, fingerprint, video call etc. However, it can now even sense and control the emotions and feelings of a human. Blue Eyes technology is making this possible.
The Blue Eyes technology aims at creating computational machines that have sensory ability like those of human beings. The machine can understand what a user wants, where he is looking at, and even realize his physical or emotional states. The Blue Eyes Technology developed is intended to be a complex solution for monitoring and recording the operator’s conscious brain involvement as well as his or her physiological condition. This shows yet another development in the field of Brain Computer Interface.
An Introduction to Blue Eyes Technology
Imagine yourself in a world where humans interact with computers. You are sitting in front of your personal computer that can listen, talk, or even scream aloud. It has the ability to gather information about you and interact with you through special techniques like facial recognition, speech recognition, etc. It can even understand your emotions at the touch of the mouse. It verifies your identity, feels your presence, and starts interacting with you. You ask the computer to dial to your friend at his office. It realizes the urgency of the situation through the mouse, dials your friend at his office, and establishes a connection.
Blue Eyes system consists of a mobile measuring device called Data Acquisition Unit (DAU) and a central analytical system called Central System Unit (CSU) interconnected by Bluetooth. DAU collects information from the sensor and sends it over the Bluetooth and delivers the messages sent from CSU to the operator.
The basic idea behind Blue Eyes Technology is to give computer the human power i.e. It uses non-obtrusive sensing method, employing most modern video cameras and microphones to identify the user’s actions through the use of imparted sensory abilities. The blue eyes system checks the physiological parameters like eye movement, heart beat rate and blood oxygenation against abnormal and undesirable values and triggers user-defined alarms when necessary.
Blue eyes technology requires designing a personal area network linking all the operators and the supervising system. The Blue Eyes system has hardware with software loaded on it. Blue Eyes system can be applied in every working environment requiring permanent operator’s attention for it.
The developments of the Blue Eyes:
Blue in this term stands for Bluetooth, which enables reliable wireless communication and the‚ Eyes because the eye movement enables us to obtain a lot of interesting and important information. For a computer to sense the eye movement, wiring between the operator and the system is required.
Blue Eyes Technology and its needs:
Human error is still one of the most frequent causes of tragedy and ecological disasters because the human contribution to the overall performance of the system is left unsupervised. Human operator becomes a passive observer of the supervised system, resulting in weariness and vigilance drop, but the user needs to be active. The user may not notice important changes of indications causing financial or ecological consequences, which is a threat to human life. Thus, it is crucial that operators brain is involved in an active system supervising over the whole work time period.
Technologies used in Blue Eyes Technology:
Emotional mouse: An emotional mouse is used to evaluate user’s emotion like anger, fear, happiness etc. It also helps to get behavior information (mouse movement, finger pressure) and physiological information (heart rate ECG/EKG, skin temperature).
Artificial intelligent speech recognition: In this technology input words are scanned and matched against those words which are internally stored and then for identification users speak to the computer via microphone. Those words are filtered and fed to ADC and then store in the RAM.
Manual and gaze input cascaded: This is also known as magical point. In this two magical pointing technique liberal and conservative are used to reduce the cursor movement needed for target selection.
Simple user interest tracker: Simple user interest tracker or SUITOR helps in tracking the user’s behavior through multiple channels – gaze, web browsing, application focus. By observing the user’s behavior SUITOR finds and display relevant information.
Blue Eyes Technology – Benefits
This system provides technical means for monitoring and recording human operators physiological conditions
- Visual attention monitoring
- Physiological condition monitoring (pulse rate, blood oxygenation) & operator’s position detection (standing, lying)
- Physiological data, operator’s voice and overall view of the control room recording recorded data playback
Blue Eyes system can be applied in every working environment requiring permanent operator’s attention:
- At Power Plant Control Rooms
- At Flight Control Centers
- For Professional Drivers
It is the way to simplify life by providing user-friendly facilities. It also helps in reducing the gap between the computer and human. Also in the future, it is quite possible to create a computer with which we can completely interact like a true buddy. The Blue eyes technology ensures a convenient way of simplifying the life by providing more delicate and user-friendly facilities in computing devices. Now that we have proven the method, the next step is to improve the hardware. Instead of using cumbersome modules to gather information about the user, it will be better to use smaller and less intrusive units. The day is not far when this technology will push its way into your household, making you lazier. The blue eyes technology meant to be a stress reliever, driven by the advanced technology of studying the facial expressions for judgment of the intensity of stress handled. These new possibilities can cover areas such as industry, transportation, military command centers or operation theaters.
