    The major challenges that sign language recognition (SLR) now faces are developing methods that solve large-vocabulary continuous sign problems. In this paper, transition-movement models (TMMs) are proposed to handle transition parts between two adjacent signs in large-vocabulary continuous SLR. For tackling mass transition movements arisen from a large vocabulary size, a temporal clustering algor... View full abstract»

    Several continuous manufacturing processes use stochastic texture images for quality control and monitoring. Large amounts of pictorial data are acquired, providing important information about both the materials produced and the manufacturing processes involved. However, it is often difficult to measure objectively the similarity among industrial stochastic images or to discriminate between textur... View full abstract»

    The application of systems thinking to designing, managing, and improving business processes has developed a new "holonic-based" process modeling methodology. The theoretical background and the methodology are described using examples taken from a large organization designing and manufacturing capital goods equipment operating within a complex and dynamic environment. A key point of differentiatio... View full abstract»

    Identifying code is a concept in information theory and can be applied to problems of fault detection and location detection. In this paper, by assigning cost to every code word, we propose an optimization problem to find an identifying code with minimum cost and formulate the problem by an integer program. We generalize the results to the robust identifying code problem, which is proposed for poo... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the responses of experienced professional pilots to change in interface configuration and differing automated invocation procedures were examined using a simulated flight-task environment. Performance was evaluated on three subtasks: two-dimensional compensatory tracking; fuel management; and systems monitoring. The status of automation, which was available for tracking and fuel man...

  • EpiList: An Intelligent Tutoring System Shell for Implicit Development of Generic Cognitive Skills That Support Bottom-Up Knowledge Construction

    Current research efforts have shifted from the development of intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) that focus on the teaching of "content" knowledge to those that focus on teaching cognitive skills. This shift is seen as necessary because cognitive skills are increasingly recognized by educational establishments as the foundation for knowledge acquisition, comprehension, and application.

    The general problem addressed in this paper is that of separating the voices of active moving speakers in the presence of background noise and moderate reverberation level in the acoustic field using a single microphone array. We adapt the multisensor multitarget tracking theory to the context of microphone arrays in order to form receptive beams that lock on each moving speaker on an extended tim... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel correlation-based pattern classifier that relies on the analysis of time-frequency decomposition of a template and signals is proposed. Significant improvements in resolution and accuracy are obtained using this new classifier when compared to a conventional correlation-based one. The short-time Fourier transform, continuous wavelet transform, and S-transform are considered ... View full abstract»

  • Gravity-Referenced Attitude Display for Mobile Robots: Making Sense of What We See

    Attitude control refers to controlling the pitch and roll of a mobile robot. As environments become more complex and cues to a robot's pose become sparser, it becomes easy for a teleoperator using an egocentric (camera) display to lose situational awareness. Reported difficulties with teleoperated robots frequently involve rollovers and sometimes even failure to realize that a robot has rolled ove... View full abstract»

    Software-reliability models (SRMs) are used for the assessment and improvement of reliability in software systems. These models are normally based on stochastic processes, with the nonhomogeneous Poisson process being one of the most prominent model forms. An underlying assumption of these models is that software failures occur randomly in time. This assumption has never been quantitatively tested... View full abstract»

    Human experts employed in validation exercises for knowledge-based systems (KBSs) often have limited time and availability. Furthermore, they often have different opinions from each other as well as from themselves over time. We address this situation by introducing the use of validation knowledge used in prior validation exercises for the same KBS. We present a validation knowledge base (VKB) tha... View full abstract»

    In evolutionary game theory, the distribution of strategies in the population is changed according to payoffs which individuals earn depending on their selected strategies. However, to the best of our knowledge, individuals' perceptions in evolutionary games have been disregarded. Individuals that select a strategy by trial and error may perceive the same conflict situation from different viewpoin... View full abstract»
