One of the next frontiers of computing is to create systems that understand the user. Context aware devices of the near future might recommend restaurants, monitor a user’s health, or screen phone calls—all based on information collected from device sensors and casual input data. Two of the most profound sensors are already on our devices: microphone and camera. In this episode of Future Lab we talk with researchers who are exploring how to make devices context aware.
