Remnesia: Frugal recognition smartglasses to help patients with memory disorders remember names #SDGclass2017
Memory disorders are numerous and of varying severity. For example, amnesia affects approximately 20 percent of people over the age of 70. And according to Alzheimer’s Disease International, approximately 35 million people worldwide suffer from dementia and about two-thirds of these people live in developing countries. For these reasons, I want to provide a cheap solution to counter the issues that affect public health.
Remnesia are smartglasses using a facial recognition software. The point is to change the sensorial channel by providing auditory information replacing visual information. The webcam on the glasses will be connected to earphones.
