Exploring Reality — Virtual Re-Creation and Monitoring of Real-World Environments
In 2016, I worked on a research project called “Exploring Reality” or ExR for short. The idea was to provide the ability to do 360-degree security monitoring of public areas without compromising people’s privacy. For example, imagine a playground where children are playing and people are walking around. By placing cameras that continuously monitor the area, we basically violate those people’s privacy. Anyone with access to the security camera recordings can see everything each one of those children and people are doing.
