Sensors are becoming a rich and powerful source of information about our environment, human responses, and social connections and interactions. As they are becoming more movable, robust and less expensive, they have the potential of reshaping the way we capture, process, understand, and deliver multimedia experiences. Marking the 15th Anniversary of the Pacific-Rim Conference on Multimedia, the panel this year will focus on time-based sensor streams, and their relationship to the more traditional media streams such as audio, video, and 3D. The discussion will cover a wide variety of sensors including environmental (GPS, accelerometers), physiological (GSR, skin temperature), advanced cameras (color plus depth cameras) and social sensors (social networks). The panel will reflect on the past, evaluate the present, and look at how sensors can radically change multimedia computing in the coming future.
