Jeremiah, interactive virtual head created by Dr Richard Bowden of the University of Surrey, England. Jeremiah is capable of recognising people and objects and responding to their behaviour by displaying emotion. For example, he will respond to a visual stimulus, such as a person waving, by smiling. If nothing is happening, he displays sadness. If he is ignored, he will become angry. Jeremiah is based on technology developed for a security system. He can run on a single PC. Jeremiah is used in educational performances along with human actors. His head is projected onto canvas, above which is a camera providing his visual input.
Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library.
Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
