    Although no one has yet to recreate Rosie from the animated sitcom The Jetsons, now more than half a century later there are some recently released and upcoming products that capture aspects of that highly skilled household robot. Recognizing family members; reminding them of tasks and events; following them through the house with music, movies, and games; and cooking a customized, artistic breakf... View full abstract»

    This article describes a simple course exercise to deepen the understanding of real-time shadow mapping algorithms. The exercise takes less than 10 minutes to perform during lecture time, leads to a profounder understanding of the topic, and serves as a basis for further discussions of improvements for the shadow mapping algorithm. Using this exercise, the authors noticed an increase in implementi... View full abstract»

    In an effort to assess simple control modalities for a remote robotic system, this study explores and tests the suitability of four interfaces for teleoperation in human-robot interaction. For a pick-and-place task, users were asked to select targets and locations using eye tracking (activated by either a mouse click or dwell time), a touchscreen, or a standard computer mouse. Contrary to their ex... View full abstract»

    A robotic system can be considered a computer with the capacity to interact with the real world using sensors and actuators. This article reports on the authors' experiences in developing novel user interfaces for robotic systems, especially in the home environment. High-level control methods that use gestural or speech commands are overly ambiguous or excessively detailed for daily use. The propo... View full abstract»

    A long-term goal in prostate cancer research is a sound prognosis prior to surgery, and as a consequence, data-centered research is becoming increasingly important. Currently, it takes several days to define meaningful cohorts by manually selecting patients from health record systems and performing statistical hypothesis tests with cohorts. The authors developed an efficient and effective visual-i... View full abstract»

    Sensemaking is a process of finding meaning from information that often involves activities such as information foraging and hypothesis generation. It can be valuable to maintain a history of the data and reasoning involved. This history, commonly known as provenance information, can be a resource for "reflection-in-action"' during analysis, supporting collaboration between analysts, and can help ... View full abstract»

    Detection of outliers and anomalous behavior is a well-known problem in the data mining and statistics fields. Although the problem of identifying single outliers has been extensively studied in the literature, little effort has been devoted to detecting small groups of outliers that are similar to each other but markedly different from the entire population. Many real-world scenarios have small g... View full abstract»

    In the spring of 2014, master's degree students in the Information Experience Design (IED) program at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and physics PhD students at Imperial College London (ICL) entered into a one-month collaboration with the purpose of translating the concepts and methods of quantum physics to a human scale. Engaging in both high- and low-tech approaches, the students used (for examp... View full abstract»

    Creating photo-real digital human faces remains one of the biggest challenges in computer graphics. A core component of the challenge comes from the high complexity of the human face, and the difficult task of building realistic faces is aggravated by human perception. Based on the work of his doctorial thesis, the author and his colleagues developed a fully passive and markerless system that reco... View full abstract»

    Characterizing the existing funding portfolio of a federal agency is difficult due to the number, complexity, and diversity of funded projects and associated metadata. Determining the impact of a funded project can be even more challenging, especially in terms of qualifying the return on investment of the research activity. Deep Insights Anywhere, Anytime (DIA2) is an interactive data-mining and W... View full abstract»
