We propose Tiger, an eyewear system for helping users follow the 20-20-20 rule to alleviate the Computer Vision Syndrome symptoms. It monitors user's screen viewing activities and provides real-time feedback to help users follow the rule. For accurate screen viewing detection, we devise a light-weight multi-sensory fusion approach with three sensing modalities, color, IMU, and lidar. We also design the real-time feedback to efectively lead users to follow the rule. Our evaluation shows that Tiger accurately detects screen viewing events, and is robust to the diferences in screen types, contents, and ambient light. Our user study shows positive perception of Tiger regarding its usefulness, acceptance, and real-time feedback.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...
