Mobile phones are becoming inseparable from humans and are replacing traditional cameras. TagSense attempts to leverage this trend to automatically tag pictures. The core idea of TagSense is to gather sensor information from nearby participating phones at the time of picture click. It then processes the sensor data to tag the picture with people and context. TagSense approach to tagging people is complementary to traditional face recognition based techniques. Our paper and poster on TagSense are presented at MobiSys 2011. Complete presentation is available in two parts: part1 and part2. Excerpts of paper and presentation are shown below.
TagSense received coverage by the popular media. Here is a representative list of links to articles about TagSense.
