    As a kid, I used to watch old westerns with my dad. Most of them involved villains robbing banks, trains, or stagecoaches. The bandits would ride in shooting their pistols in the air while wearing rags to cover the bottom halves of their faces, which identified them as the villains. The bandits were always successful because the banks carried large bags of money and the trains carried people with ... View full abstract»

    Over the last several years, there has been much research and investigation on finding new ways to interact with the smart systems that currently form an integral part of our lives. One of the most widely researched fields in human-computer interaction (HCI) has been the use of human eye gaze as an input modality to control and command intelligent systems. For example, gaze-based schemes for hands... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (847 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The necessity of a new video coding standard has been discussed since 2014. This may be the right time for us to ask ourselves if we need a new codec since we already have a handful of codecs in the market. Standardized in 1992, the JPEG standard has been the most successful standard in the acquisition, archiving, transmission, and display of still pictures. Including JPEG 2000, new image coding s...

    On the nanosys blog, i've often written about the chicken and egg problem [1] that exists between content creators, broadcasters, and display makers. These three groups have had a hard time agreeing when it comes to next-generation ultra high definition (UHD) video features like 4K resolution, wide color gamut, and high dynamic range (HDR). Each side has taken a wait-and-see approach, with creator... View full abstract»
