Abstract
We describe the architecture and prototype implementation of an assistive system based on Google Glass
devices for users in cognitive decline. It combines the first-person image capture and sensing capabilities
of Glass with cloud processing to perform real-time scene interpretation. The system architecture is
multi-tiered. It offers tight end-to-end latency bounds on compute-intensive operations, while addressing
concerns such as limited battery capacity and limited processing capability of wearable devices. The
system gracefully degrades services in the face of network failures and unavailability of distant architectural
tiers.
