    Presents a new method for constructing a virtual environment from a real-world scene, in which users can look around the scene with binocular stereoscopic sensation. The approach is based on generating novel views at arbitrary positions from a sequence of omnidirectional images in real time. A sequence of omnidirectional images is captured by a moving an omnidirectional video camera with a known v... View full abstract»

    The authors describe an omnidirectional image sensor, called HyperOmniVision, that can observe a 360 degree field of view and can transformed an input image to a common camera image or a panoramic image easily. However, it has an intrinsic problem where the angular resolution of HyperOmniVision is lower than that of a conventional video camera. The authors propose a super-resolution method for Hyp...

    As the amount of information in the world steadily increases, there is a growing demand for tools for analyzing this information. In this paper, we investigate the problem of data mining, i.e. constructing decision rules from a set of primitive input data. The main contention is that there is a need to be able to generate decision rules and to reason in presence of inconsistencies. Propositional d... View full abstract»

    This article proposes a new real-time communication mechanism called RT-Messenger. This mechanism is designed to handle communication messages with interrupt-level priority. Although RT-Messenger is independent of communication devices, we implemented this mechanism to support an Ethernet as an additional function of RTLinux, a real-time extended Linux. Some performance evaluations show that this ... View full abstract»

    Human bodily motions are effectively used to communicate, and the ability to read the intentions behind those is essentially important for the machine system to collaborate with the human. If we use behaviors as medium of communication with the machine, the machine system should be able to construct meanings from them. In this paper, semiosis and related topics of symbol grounding are reviewed, an... View full abstract»

    Weighted OWA (ordered weighted aggregation) operators were introduced as a generalization of the weighted mean (WM) and the OWA operators, so that the advantages of both could be used in a single data fusion function. In this work, we study the determination of their parameters when a set of examples is at our disposal. The approach presented in this paper is of interest in data mining when a cert...

    Adaptation. to dynamic environments is an important application of genetic algorithms (GAs). However, there are many difficulties in applying a GA to dynamic environments. In particular, in online environments, the GA's defects become remarkable because individuals should be evaluated in the real world. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to such an online adaptation, called the "environmen... View full abstract»

    The final LHC dipole series test setup is foreseen as 12 benches where the largest and most expensive devices will be shared into cluster of two benches. This sharing is possible because of a deliberate de-phasing of the tests between magnets to make an optimum use of resources, such as cryogenics and power equipment, without limiting the test throughput.

    This paper aims to investigate creativity in a semiotic perspective and encourage researchers of the engineering community to a broad discussion of the creative process. After an introduction to the modern study of creativity, we argue that although semiotics is often seen as opposed to cognitive science, these two different ways of approaching creativity phenomena are complementary. We then show ... View full abstract»
