    Identifying on-going activities for the provision of services that are capable of matching the needs of users poses a number of daunting challenges. Most existing approaches to activity recognition require training offline activity models before being applied to the identification of activities in real time. However, the dynamic nature of actual living environments can make previously learned acti... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a novel methodology for designing alternative human-machine interfaces (HMI) dealing with the industrial process control visualization and plant monitoring. The system is based on a multiagent approach in order to allow visualizations using nonconventional display devices (e.g., power-wall or table) combined with the natural user interaction (NUI) paradigm. This type of HMI so... View full abstract»

    Techniques to efficiently discover, collect, organize, search, and disseminate real-time disaster information have become national priorities for efficient crisis management and disaster recovery tasks. We have developed techniques to facilitate information sharing and collaboration between both private and public sector participants for major disaster recovery planning and management. We have des... View full abstract»

    Computer- and Internet-supported education (CISE) has many advantages over the traditional face-to-face education, which has been part of the human cultural heritage for thousands of years. One of the key challenges of CISE systems is to accomplish augmented face-to-face interaction during the whole learning process by providing both comprehensive and well-coordinated functionalities to facilitate...

    As physical interactions between robots and humans become more common, there is a growing need to design robots that are kinesthetically perceived as human-like. One approach to implement human-like mechanical impedance is to physically simulate models of the human neuromuscular system. However, the level of model complexity needed to achieve perception of human-like properties is unknown. The pur... View full abstract»

    Gaze tracking has been suggested as an alternative to traditional computer pointing mechanisms. However, the accuracy limitations of gaze estimation algorithms and the fatigue imposed on users when overloading the visual perceptual channel with a motor control task have prevented the widespread adoption of gaze as a pointing modality. Rather than using gaze as a complete pointing mechanism, this s... View full abstract»

    The healthcare system is moving from one primary physician who assumes responsibility for each patient to a more team-based approach. Thus, assessing team communication is critical. This study characterizes and assesses the quality of hospitalist handover communications at shift change using the literature recommended content and language form elements. Quality handovers should contain the followi... View full abstract»

    A new approach for static signature verification is presented in this paper. The approach uses optical flow to estimate local stability among signatures. In the enrollment stage, optical flow is used to define a stability model of the genuine signatures for each signer. In the verification stage, the stability between the unknown signature and each one of the reference signatures is estimated and ... View full abstract»
