Prosopagnosia (PA), or the inability to recognize faces, is widespread around the world, with no effective cure for the disease. We propose a wearable system to improve prosopagnosic's daily life. The system utilizes a real-time face recognition application that runs on a smartphone, and a portable eyewear that displays descriptive information when a person appears in range of camera mounted on the eyewear. The system helps these patients identify faces, reminds them to make social reactions
more &raquo; ... ultimately prevents them from developing social anxiety disorders, characterized by fear and avoidance of social situations that may cause embarrassment. Lastly, we implement the system in a real life demonstration to test its performance.
