Capturing and viewing images has never been easier for the consumer than it is today. The proliferation of digital cameras, either on a dedicated device or combined with a mobile phone, means that most of us carry cameras with us the whole time and are likely to capture images both more often and also for more diverse uses than previously. What we do with those images though is much less obvious than in the days of analogue systems. How do we display, share, store, archive and retrieve images ? How will we be able to do this in the future ? Digital technology offers an abundance of opportunities to address these questions. Some examples of current activities will be presented together with a discussion of possible future directions.


Alan has spent his entire career at Kodak Research. Having joined as an analytical scientist, he specialised in mass spectrometry where he pioneered a number of new techniques within the company, particularly focussing on the application of computer systems to data manipulation and researching into the use of artificial intelligence for the interpretation of mass spectral data.
