sensors. The retrieved object configurations can significantly improve a user's interaction experience or an application's execution context, for example by detecting multi-hand zoom and rotation gestures or recognizing a grasping hand. We emphasize the broad applicability of the proposed method with a study of a multi-hand gesture recognition device.
In this paper, we propose a system geared to the visual analysis of contagion. It includes the simulation of contagion effects as well as their visual exploration. We present new tools able to compare the evolution of the different contagion processes. In this way, propagation of disturbances can be effectively analyzed. We focus on financial networks; however, our system can be applied to other use cases as well.
statistical analysis of ground-truth trajectories to derive appropriate CRF potentials for modeling data fidelity, target dynamics, and inter-target occlusion.
and yields state-of-the-art restoration quality on images corrupted with synthetic and real blur.
In this paper, radial ray based segmentation is applied to lymph nodes: From a seed point, rays are cast into all directions and an optimization technique determines a radius for each ray based on image appearance and shape knowledge. Lymph node specific appearance cost functions are introduced and their optimal parameters are determined. For the first time, the resulting segmentation accuracy of different appearance cost functions and optimization strategies are compared. Further contributions are extensions to reduce the dependency on the seed point, to support a larger variety of shapes, and to enable interaction. The best results are obtained using graph-cut on a combination of the direction weighted image gradient and accumulated intensities outside a predefined intensity range. Evaluation on 100 lymph nodes shows that with an average symmetric surface distance of 0.41 mm the segmentation accuracy is close to manual segmentation and outperforms existing radial ray and model based
methods. The method's inter-observer-variability of 5.9% for volume assessment is lower than the 15.9% obtained using manual segmentation.
In this paper, we interpret a generative script as a function, which is nested into an objective function. Thus, the script's parameters can be optimized according to an objective. We demonstrate this approach using architectural examples: each generative script creates a building with several free parameters. The objective function is an energy-efficiency-simulation that approximates a building's annual energy consumption. Consequently, the nested objective function reads a set of building parameters and returns the energy needs for the corresponding building. This nested function is passed to a minimization and optimization process. Outcome is the best building (within the family of buildings described by its script) concerning energy-efficiency. Our contribution is a new way of modeling. The generative approach separates design and engineering: the complete design is encoded in a script and the script ensures that all parameter combinations (within a fixed range) generate a valid
design. Then the design can be optimized numerically.
registration of the camera path is retrieved with state-of-the-art vision-based tracking. As all necessary data is acquired directly from the images, no external tracking equipment needs to be installed. After calibration, the HUD can be used together with a head-tracker to form a head-coupled display which ensures a perspectively correct rendering of any 3D object in vehicle coordinates from a large range of possible viewpoints. We evaluate the accuracy of our model quantitatively and qualitatively.
