BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Two Indiana University professors and a Dartmouth College sociology professor have been awarded a $1.2 million grant to try to improve the privacy of people captured by wearable cameras.

IU School of Informatics and Computing assistant professors Apu Kapadia and David Crandall and Dartmouth College sociology professor Denise Anthony received the National Science Foundation grant.

Kapadia says they will try to design image and context analysis tools that can help people manage privacy. The researchers say previous work has shown many people who use such cameras would respect the privacy of bystanders by blurring or blocking out faces if they had the technology to do so. At the same time, similar technologies available to the wearers of the camera also need to be developed to protect their privacy.
