  • Publication number: 20200286259
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (2000) includes a determination unit (2020) and a notification unit (2040). The determination unit (2020) determines whether a field of view of a second camera is correct, on the basis of a first captured image (40), a second captured image (50), and relationship information (information indicating the relationship to be satisfied between a field of view of a first camera and the field of view of the second camera). In a case in which the field of view of the second camera is not correct, the notification unit (2040) notifies that the field of view of the second camera is not correct. The first camera is provided in a head-mounted display worn by a person. The second camera is provided in a part other than the head-mounted display.

  • Publication number: 20200127810
    Abstract: An encryption device generates a ciphertext ct including an encryption element C in which a plaintext ? is set, an encryption element Cx in which an attribute x is set, and an encryption element F that is not to be decrypted with a decryption key skf corresponding to a policy f satisfied by the attribute x and in which the plaintext ? is set. A homomorphic computation device converts the ciphertext ct into a ciphertext ct˜ by converting, with the encryption element F, the encryption element C included in the ciphertext ct into an encryption element C˜ that can be decrypted with the decryption key skF corresponding to a policy set F acquired by a policy acquisition unit. The homomorphic computation device performs homomorphic computation g on the ciphertext ct˜ to generate a ciphertext ct*.

  • Publication number: 20200074184
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (2000) includes a summarizing unit (2040) and a display control unit (2060). The summarizing unit (2040) obtains a video (30) generated by each of a plurality of cameras (10). Furthermore, the summarizing unit (2040) performs a summarizing process on the video (30) and generates summary information of the video (30). The display control unit (2060) causes a display system (20) to display the video (30). Here, the display control unit (2060) causes the display system (20) to display the summary information of the video (30) in response to that a change in a display state of the video (30) in the display system (20) satisfies a predetermined condition.
