Εικονική αναζήτηση (visual search) και με χρήση εργαλείων eye tracking

download

Διεξάγουμε έρευνα για την λειτουργία εικονικής αναζήτησης (visual search) και με χρήση εργαλείων eye tracking (κάμερες καταγραφής οφθαλμικών κινήσεων) αναλύεται η ανταπόκριση του χρήστη σε αναζήτηση εικονικού τύπου πληροφορίας σε εικόνες. Έχει αναπτυχθεί μια πρωτότυπη ψηφιακή εφαρμογή η οποία θα χρησιμοποιήσει  ζεύγη εικόνων με έργα τέχνης προκειμένου μελετηθεί πώς ένας χρήστης παρατηρεί δύο συσχετιζόμενες εικόνες στην προσπάθειά […]
