Abstract

Information technologies have dramatically changed our real world. There are two major concepts have played a role to change the real world. Through the computation concept, our various tasks can be automated. Also, the informatization concept makes us possible to quantify our daily activities. These concepts offer infinite possibilities for our future. However, another concept named the digital enhancement through virtualization concept has not been well discussed previously for changing the real world, but the concept has strong power to refine our real world. In this paper, we use the concept to virtualize collective human eyesight capabilities. We have developed a prototype implementation of the distributed platform to virtualize collective human eyesight and hearing capabilities and extracted some insights from the current platform. The paper concludes by exploring several future challenges to enhancing our current approach.
