What is attention computing

Attention computing is a part of the next generation of human-computer interaction, which today relies on keyboards, mice, and touchscreens but is shifting toward intuitive communication using sounds, gestures, and movement.

Removing the barriers between people and technology

To understand each other, we rely on our senses to gather information, and our brains to process it. For technology to reach similar levels of understanding, it too needs to gather and process data rapidly. And this is what attention computing is about, the collection and processing of signals generated by motion, audio, and visual sensors, using deep learning to create valuable insights.

What you can do with attention computing insights

Eye exam

Uncover new therapies and diagnostics

By enabling research to identify unexplored connections between brain activity and disease. Crucial as life expectancy rises.

Looking at a screen while performing work task

Enable handsfree interaction

Using tiny head and eye movements and other gestures to, for example, pan, scroll, and select items on a screen, open and close doors, or select keys on a logical keyboard.

Tired driver

Generate safety warnings and prevent injury

By detecting when a person is, for example, too close to dangerous machinery, falling asleep at the wheel, or carrying out life-threatening tasks while impaired or experiencing very high levels of stress or cognitive load.

Early identification of cognitive issues

By capturing movement patterns that indicate the presence of neurological diseases and conditions, traumatic brain injury, or attention deficit.

Skills transfer - visual inspection

Enable advanced skills transfer

By leveraging 3D modeling and visualization techniques to show exactly how an expert carries out a task, helping the trainee to learn and the mentor to understand where improvement is needed.

Automation assembly line

Digital transformation

By creating immersive digital experiences that replace time consuming manual processes, freeing up valuable expertise and enabling equity and democratization in services such as healthcare and education.
