    Editor's NoteIn 2002, Jeremy Hight was involved in the project 34 North 118 West, one of the seminal works of what became known as locative media. He also wrote one of the seminal texts of the field, Narrative Archaeology. Here he discusses the process of conceptualizing and making the work and how it has fueled his latest projects with locative narratives.—Maria Miranda View full abstract»

    We present the design and implementation of a virtual camera team for recording classroom lectures. Our approach to lecture recording, with well-defined tasks for each module, has two significant advantages. First, the workload is distributed; for example, the camera-operator modules and not the director module produce the images. Second, it's easier to implement complex cinematographic rules usin...

    Automatic music transcription (AMT) refers to the ability of computers to write note information, such as the pitch, onset time, duration, and source of each sound, after listening to the music. Our application scenario is computer-assisted, musical-instrument tutoring, where the user has to practice most of the time without human coaching. The target users of our initial system are beginning viol... View full abstract»
