Researchers at Montana State University and Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany have created a simple mathematical model based on optical measurements that explains the stunning colors of Yellowstone National Park’s hot springs and can visually recreate how they appeared years ago, before decades of tourists contaminated the pools with make-a-wish coins and other detritus. The model, and stunning pictures of the springs, appear today in the journal Applied Optics.

The increasing presence of wearable cameras -- such as smartphones, Google Glass and lifelogging devices like the Narrative Clip and Autographer -- has facilitated benefits in a variety of societal areas, including police investigations, lifestyle monitoring, and aiding patients with memory loss and families with autistic children. But for two Indiana University professors, the trend toward pervasive, automatic image capturing raises new and important questions about privacy, surveillance and the use of technical data derived from those images. Assistant professors Apu Kapadia and David Crandall, both at IU Bloomington’s School of Informatics and Computing, along with Dartmouth College sociology professor Denise Anthony, will use $1.2 million in new funding from the National Science Foundation to advance their work developing new technologies to improve the privacy of people captured in those images. Those new technologies could also be designed to protect captured images from va
