The SenseCam is a passive capture wearable camera and when worn continuously it takes an average of 1,900 images per day. It can be used to create a personal lifelog or visual recording of a wearer's life which can be helpful as an aid to human memory. For such a large amount of visual information to be useful, it needs to be structured into "events", which(More)
The Microsoft SenseCam is a small multi-sensor camera worn around the user’s neck. It was designed primarily for lifelog recording. At present, the SenseCam passively records up to 3,000 images per day as well as logging data from several on-board sensors. The sheer volume of image and sensor data captured by the SenseCam creates a number of challenges in(More)
The SenseCam is a small wearable personal device which automatically captures up to 2,500 images per day. This yields a very large personal collection of images, or in a sense a large visual diary of a person’s day. Intelligent techniques are necessary for effective structuring, searching and browsing of this image collection for locating important or(More)
The SenseCam is a passive capture wearable camera, worn around the neck and developed by Microsoft Research in the UK. When worn continuously it takes an average of 2,000 images per day. It was originally envisaged for use within the domain of Human Digital Memory to create a personal lifelog or visual recording of the wearer's life, which can be helpful as(More)
In this work we present a method for the deposition of periodically ordered, c-axis aligned ZnO nanorod arrays. By using chemical bath deposited films in conjunction with silica templating through nanosphere monolayers, masks suitable for high temperature deposition are created. A vapour phase transport technique is then used to deposit ordered arrays,(More)
Mammalian Peyer's Patches possess specialized epithelium, the follicle associated epithelium (FAE), and specialized cells called M cells which mediate transcytosis of antigens to underlying lymphoid tissue. To identify FAE specific genes, we used TOGA gene expression profiling of microdissected mouse Peyer's Patch tissue. We found expression of laminin(More)
Peyer's patch follicle-associated epithelium (FAE) regulates intestinal antigen access to the immune system in part through the action of microfold (M) cells which mediate transcytosis of antigens and microorganisms. Studies on M cells have been limited by the difficulties in isolating purified cells, so we applied TOGA mRNA expression profiling to identify(More)
The Microsoft SenseCam is a small lightweight wearable camera used to passively capture photos and other sensor readings from a user’s day-to-day activities. It captures on average 3,000 images in a typical day, equating to almost 1 million images per year. It can be used to aid memory by creating a personal multimedia lifelog, or visual recording of the(More)

We present an approach for utilising a mobile device’s Bluetooth sensor to automatically identify social interactions and relationships between individuals in the real world. We show that a high degree of accuracy is achievable in the automatic identification of mobile devices of familiar individuals. This has implications for mobile device security, social(More)
