Judging a book through its cover
Sep 12, 2016 —
MIT and Georgia Tech researchers are designing an imaging system that can read closed books.
In the latest issue of Nature Communications, the team describes a prototype of the system, which they tested on a stack of papers, each with one letter printed on it. The system was able to correctly identify the letters on the top nine sheets.
Barmak Heshmat, a research scientist at the MIT Media Lab, is joined on the paper by Ramesh Raskar, an associate professor of media arts and sciences; Albert Redo Sanchez, a research specialist in the Camera Culture group at the Media Lab; two of the group’s other members; and by Professor Justin Romberg of the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Alireza Aghasi, Romberg's former postdoctoral fellow who now works with IBM.
