Paul Duckworth, Director of Engineering at Twisthink, presents the "Reduce Risk in Computer Vision Design: Focus on the User" tutorial at the May 2018 Embedded Vision Summit.

Companies across a wide range of industries are considering ways to apply computer vision to innovate their products and services. With the vast potential of this exciting technology, a common mistake is building something that is powerful but not necessarily needed or desired. User input, when harnessed, can be a powerful antidote to this risk, driving focus into computer vision development.

Human-centered design is a process to manage the risk and complexity of developing computer vision systems by balancing three focus areas: product usability/desirability, technical feasibility and business viability. This process identifies valuable insights to help navigate conflicting development options and ensure the final product is desirable to the end user.

This presentation outlines the essentials of human-centered design and how it can be used to drive focus and clarity in the development of complex vision-based products. Duckworth illuminates the value of this approach through examples including a wearable connected camera and a vision-based space tracker.
