Date and Time

Current cameras capture instants in time and space. But there is something just beyond the reach of the camera that our minds seem to capture quite well: moments. We remember moments. We'd like to share moments. We want to capture moments. I will provide at least an informal definition of what I am calling a moment. I'll also discuss recent technology that lets us use current cameras+processing to capture moments. Finally, I'll argue for how I believe future cameras, editing systems, and display paradigms will support this new class of artifact. This talk should be interesting to both the computer scientist and the photographer.
