I’m a project scientist for the Cabot Project which aims to build a guiding robot for people with visual impairments.
My research goal is to augment a person’s ability to expand the possibility of their everyday life through human-computer interaction design and development utilizing state-of-art computer technologies and also the power of community. I’ve been working for Accessibility Research Group in IBM Research since 2005 and explored augmentation of information access for people with visually impaired people and also aging population, and extended research area from cyber-world to real-world, recent years.
The current research focus is on augmented interaction with real-world for people with visually impaired by utilizing mobile sensor-fusion, speech and text analysis, computer vision, and also physical mobile robot.
