TimeTuesday, 19 November 20199:00 - 18:00
DescriptionBookVIS is a visual "companion" that recognizes a book’s cover, and uses it instantly to provide users with information about the book. After snapping a photo of the book, the app generates the visual dashboard that users may use for further exploration. The system allows users to identify and discover more information on books from pictures of book covers taken on their smartphones. With the presented system and its interplay between real and digital worlds, new avenues could be opened for creating new dimensions for adaptive visualizations.
