    In one abstract view, computer graphics deals with building computer models or representations and then displaying them by some method or theory to produce a high-quality image. Computer vision is a dual to computer graphics. It starts with an image or animation and deduces the model representation for the computer. Computer graphics goes down from model to image, and computer vision goes up from ... View full abstract»

    Merce Cunningham's “Biped” is a new and unique modern dance. The choreography integrates computer-captured virtual dance movement so directly and naturally as to root the entire piece in today's time and space. The animations derive from a complex process, beginning with computerized motion-capture sessions. “Biped” reveals an openness and curiosity applied to computer tech... View full abstract»

    A compositional approach increases the level of representation that can be automatically extracted and used in a visual information retrieval system. Visual information at the perceptual level is aggregated according to a set of rules. These rules reflect the specific context and transform perceptual words into phrases capturing pictorial content at a higher, and closer to the human, semantic leve... View full abstract»

    Cabin, an immersive projection display, is a room-sized, five-screen system that can display both computer graphics and video images. Several Cabins connected via a broadband network form the Cabinet system. Cabinet includes video avatars-a key new technology for sharing virtual worlds. Using video avatars, we have experimentally evaluated the ability to express positional information between dist... View full abstract»

    Audio-visual information must allow some degree of interpretation, which can be passed onto, or accessed by a device or a computer code. MPEG-7 aims to create a standard for describing these operational requirements. We provide an overview on the development, functionality, and applicability of MPEG-7. We present the role of MPEG-7 and outline ideas for using MPEG-7 technology based on examples of... View full abstract»

    Each time antivirus developers discover a way to fight some virus, they record information about it in case a similar or modified virus appears. Viruses and records about them are generally unique-developers practically never have enough time to go back and systematize the information. This proprietary, piecemeal approach doesn't help much. In 1992, Eugene Kaspersky, chief developer of the AVP ant... View full abstract»

    DVD (digital video disc, or digital versatile disc) is the next generation of optical disc storage technology. It's essentially a bigger, faster compact disc (CD) that can hold video as well as audio and computer data. DVD aims to encompass home entertainment, computers and business information with a single digital format, eventually replacing audio CD, videotape, laser disc, CD-ROM, and perhaps ...
