Non-rigid surface detection for gestural interaction with applicable surfaces

Andrew Ziegler; Serge Belongie 2012 IEEE Workshop on the Applications of Computer Vision (WACV), 2012

In this work we present a novel application of non-rigid surface detection to enable gestural interaction with applicable surfaces. This method can add interactivity to traditionally passive media such as books, newspapers, restaurant menus, or anything else printed on paper. We allow a user to interact with these surfaces in a natural manner and present basic gestures based on pointing ...


Single and multi-finger movements are correlated in neuronal population activities as well as in natural behaviors

Seon-ju Lim; Kyung-Jin You; Marc H. Schieber; Nitish V. Thakor; Hyun-Chool Shin 2011 International Symposium on Intelligent Signal Processing and Communications Systems (ISPACS), 2011

Behaviorally multi-finger movements can be treated as a direct combination of individual finger motions. Although physical interactions among multi-fingers are easy to identify, corresponding simultaneous activation or correlation of M1 neurons is not readily evident. By exploiting neuronal correlation between single and multi-finger movements, this paper presented an answer on whether neurons encode multi-finger movements independently or as a certain ...

Interaction of perceived frequency and intensity in fingertip electrotactile stimulation: Dissimilarity ratings and multidimensional scaling

Kurt A. Kaczmarek; Mitchell E. Tyler; Uchechukwu O. Okpara; Steven J. Haase IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, 2017

Sensations elicited by electrical stimulation of touch are multidimensional, varying in perceived intensity and quality in response to changes in stimulus current or waveform timing. This study manipulated both current and frequency while volunteer participants estimated the dissimilarity of all nonidentical pairs of 16 stimulus conditions. Multidimensional scaling analysis revealed that a model having two perceptual dimensions was adequate in ...

    Boosting is an approach to machine learning based on the idea of creating a highly accurate predictor by combining many weak and inaccurate "rules of thumb." A remarkably rich theory has evolved around boosting, with connections to a range of topics, including statistics, game theory, convex optimization, and information geometry. Boosting algorithms have also enjoyed practical success in such fields as biology, vision, and speech processing. At various times in its history, boosting has been perceived as mysterious, controversial, even paradoxical.This book, written by the inventors of the method, brings together, organizes, simplifies, and substantially extends two decades of research on boosting, presenting both theory and applications in a way that is accessible to readers from diverse backgrounds while also providing an authoritative reference for advanced researchers. With its introductory treatment of all material and its inclusion of exercises in every chapter, the book is appropriate for course use as well. The book begins with a general introduction to machine learning algorithms and their analysis; then explores the core theory of boosting, especially its ability to generalize; examines some of the myriad other theoretical viewpoints that help to explain and understand boosting; provides practical extensions of boosting for more complex learning problems; and finally presents a number of advanced theoretical topics. Numerous applications and practical illustrations are offered throughout.

    In teaching an introduction to the finite element method at the undergraduate level, a prudent mix of theory and applications is often sought. In many cases, analysts use the finite element method to perform parametric studies on potential designs to size parts, weed out less desirable design scenarios, and predict system behavior under load. In this book, we discuss common pitfalls encountered by many finite element analysts, in particular, students encountering the method for the first time. We present a variety of simple problems in axial, bending, torsion, and shear loading that combine the students' knowledge of theoretical mechanics, numerical methods, and approximations particular to the finite element method itself. We also present case studies in which analyses are coupled with experiments to emphasize validation, illustrate where interpretations of numerical results can be misleading, and what can be done to allay such tendencies. Challenges in presenting the necessary mix f theory and applications in a typical undergraduate course are discussed. We also discuss a list of tips and rules of thumb for applying the method in practice.

  • Modeling Techniques for EMC Analysis

    This paper provides a review of modeling concepts for analyzing problems in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The approach to be discussed here begins with first-principles considerations, including a system topological description, determination of appropriate material and geometrical parameters, and a statement of a formal model involving solutions of Maxwell's equations. As in most engineering problems, suitable approximations to the solution are required to make the problem tractable. To be avoided in this modeling approach are the ?>rules of thumb,?> which are often encountered in the EMC community.
