    Peer-produced systems can achieve what might be infeasible for stand-alone systems developed by a single entity. The SenseWeb's goal is to enable these kinds of capabilities. Using SenseWeb, applications can initiate and access sensor data streams from shared sensors across the entire Internet. The SenseWeb infrastructure helps ensure optimal sensor selection for each application and efficient sha... View full abstract»

    Scientific publishing connotes a long and well-established process of sharing achieved research results through distributed articles. Publishers often critically peer review the articles to ensure that the presented results are competitive, relevant, valuable, and creditable, and that they reveal new contributions to the field. Journals like Nature or Science take this process a step further. In a... View full abstract»

    Microarray technology offers a high-throughput means to study expression networks and gene regulatory networks in cells. The intrinsic nature of high dimensionality and small sample size in microarray data calls for effective computational methods. In this article, we propose a novel hybrid dimension reduction technique for classification that combines principal component analysis (PCA) and linear... View full abstract»

    This article presents two instances in which multimedia systems and processing have elucidated animal behavior and have been central in developing quantitative descriptions. These examples demonstrate multimedia systems' utility and necessity in developing a complete phenotypic description. We hope that this article will spur interest in this subject in the multimedia community, so more advanced p... View full abstract»

    We present conTACT, a new concept for assisting in surgical interventions via 3D multimodal computer-navigated surgery. In contrast to conventional computer-navigated surgery, our system explicitly processes and uses information about the surgeon to augment human-machine interaction. We also evaluate humans' neuroscientific behavior and show how we can transfer 3D navigation information via tactil... View full abstract»

    We present a multilayered architecture and spatiotemporal models for searching, retrieving, and analyzing high-throughput biological imaging data. The analysis is divided into low-and high-level processing. At the lower level, we address issues like segmentation, tracking, and object recognition, and at the high level, we use finite state machine-and Petri-net-based models for spatiotemporal event...

    Our mixed-reality platform helps train surgeons in minimally invasive surgery and objectively assesses their performance. The platform uses multicamera stereo inside a patient manikin to measure the 3D positions of unmodified surgical instruments. It uses this information to drive a mixed-reality, computer-mediated learning system and provide objective measures of surgical skill. View full abstract»

    VC-1 is a new video coding standard developed by Microsoft and standardized by the SMPTE. VC-1 is one of the three video compression algorithms standardized for high definition DVD. With high definition DVD players expecting to support MPEG-2, H.264, and VC-1, end users do not have to be concerned about the coding formats. The VC-1 standard offers a competitive quality-complexity tradeoff compared... View full abstract»
