    Both the configuration and the dynamics of facial expressions are crucial for the interpretation of human facial behavior. Yet to date, the vast majority of reported efforts in the field either do not take the dynamics of facial expressions into account, or focus only on prototypic facial expressions of six basic emotions. Facial dynamics can be explicitly analyzed by detecting the constituent tem... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the maximum weighted stream posterior (MWSP) model as a robust and efficient stream integration method for audio-visual speech recognition in environments, where the audio or video streams may be subjected to unknown and time-varying corruption. A significant advantage of MWSP is that it does not require any specific measurements of the signal in either stream to calculate appr... View full abstract»

    An artificial immune system inspired by the fundamental principle of the vertebrate immune system, for solving constrained optimization problems, is proposed. The analogy between the mechanism of biological immune response and constrained optimization formulation is drawn. Individuals in population are classified into feasible and infeasible groups according to their constraint violations that clo... View full abstract»

  • Efficient Iterative Pose Estimation Using an Invariant to Rotations

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):199 - 207

    This paper deals with pose estimation using an iterative scheme. We show that using adequate visual information, pose estimation can be performed iteratively with only three independent unknowns, which are the translation parameters. Specifically, an invariant to rotational motion is used to estimate the camera position. In addition, an adequate transformation is applied to the proposed invariant ... View full abstract»

  • Task-Based Decomposition of Factored POMDPs

    Recently, partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDP) solvers have shown the ability to scale up significantly using domain structure, such as factored representations. In many domains, the agent is required to complete a set of independent tasks. We propose to decompose a factored POMDP into a set of restricted POMDPs over subsets of task relevant state variables. We solve each such mo... View full abstract»

  • A Robust Vision-Based Sensor Fusion Approach for Real-Time Pose Estimation

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):217 - 227

    Object pose estimation is of great importance to many applications, such as augmented reality, localization and mapping, motion capture, and visual servoing. Although many approaches based on a monocular camera have been proposed, only a few works have concentrated on applying multicamera sensor fusion techniques to pose estimation. Higher accuracy and enhanced robustness toward sensor defects or ... View full abstract»

    Among various approaches to eye tracking systems, light-reflection based systems with non-imaging sensors, e.g., photodiodes or phototransistors, are known to have relatively low complexity; yet, they provide moderately accurate estimation of the point of gaze. In this paper, a low-computational approach on gaze estimation is proposed using the Eye Touch system, which is a light-reflection based e... View full abstract»

  • Bidirectional Optimization of the Melting Spinning Process

    A bidirectional optimizing approach for the melting spinning process based on an immune-enhanced neural network is proposed. The proposed bidirectional model can not only reveal the internal nonlinear relationship between the process configuration and the quality indices of the fibers as final product, but also provide a tool for engineers to develop new fiber products with expected quality specif...

  • Heuristically-Accelerated Multiagent Reinforcement Learning

    This paper presents a novel class of algorithms, called Heuristically-Accelerated Multiagent Reinforcement Learning (HAMRL), which allows the use of heuristics to speed up well-known multiagent reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms such as the Minimax-Q. Such HAMRL algorithms are characterized by a heuristic function, which suggests the selection of particular actions over others. This function r... View full abstract»

    Visual attention guides our gaze to relevant parts of the viewed scene, yet the moment-to-moment relocation of gaze can be different among observers even though the same locations are taken into account. Surprisingly, the variability of eye movements has been so far overlooked by the great majority of computational models of visual attention. In this paper we present the ecological sampling model,...

  • A New Performance Index for the Repetitive Motion of Mobile Manipulators

    A mobile manipulator is a robotic device composed of a mobile platform and a stationary manipulator fixed to the platform. To achieve the repetitive motion control of mobile manipulators, the mobile platform and the manipulator have to realize the repetitive motion simultaneously. To do so, a novel quadratic performance index is, for the first time, designed and presented in this paper, of which t... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new robust adaptive control method for a class of nonlinear systems subject to uncertainties. The proposed approach is based on an adaptive dynamic surface control, where the system uncertainties are approximately modeled by interval type-2 fuzzy neural networks. In this paper, the robust stability of the closed-loop system is guaranteed by the Lyapunov theorem, and all error... View full abstract»
