This tool combines 'visual-saliency' mapping of frames of footage based on distinctive visual features with 'gaze-prediction' mapping based on head movement and previous gaze direction. This tool could facilitate real-time guidance derived from headcam footage in situations involving complex tasks such as surgery and manufacturing.
