Summary of responses for pervasive recording of public spaces:
Summarized by Tilke Judd

Adding time to Google maps/earth or subscription webcams to get better
images to get
- ski conditions
- snow plowed roads for cyclists
- signs from physical storefronts
- lost and found objects
- ski, surf, SCUBA locations
More detailed indoor locations:
- restaurant food
- children's classroom
In the extreme, could have time/space travel if Google Earth dense enough

Google search for life
- Where did I see this?
- where did I loose my keys?
- where did my time go? breakdown of activities at end of month

Pattern recognition over time
- traffic on the roads
- people in a mall or amusement park
- glacier melting and environmental changes
- road damage
- crop analysis

RealTime feedback to applications
- camera sees person and customizes experience (ads or access)
Access control
- instead of RFID tags or badges or biometric methods
- houses
- medicine cabinets

- Add to cars
- Use for police work and terrorist trailing
- help first responders tackle emergencies (earthquake, tsunami, flooding)
- Remote Healthcare

Good citizen mobile cameras
- take prostitutes and gangs off the streets by humiliating them on camera
- people bargain in auction to provide images at specific location for
remote person

Virtual environment
- Photosynth
- Phototourism
- next project will be: video tourism

- Too many pics, each pic less valuable
- So much video to analyze or summarize or view
- information overload - need good compression
- resolution or contrast too low
- unobserved areas
- inability to locate one individual
- who gets access to watch them?  just police?  no - let everyone see.
