Direkt Profil is an automatic analyzer of texts written in French as a second language. Its objective is to produce an evaluation of the developmental stage of students under the form of a grammatical learner profile. Direkt Profil carries out a sentence analysis based on developmental sequences, i.e. local morphosyntactic phenomena linked to a development… (More)
For more than a decade, supersample anti-aliasing (SSAA) and multisample anti-aliasing (MSAA) have been the gold-standard anti-aliasing solutions in games. However, these techniques are not well suited for deferred shading or fixed environments like the current generation of consoles. In recent years, industry and academia have been exploring alternative… (More)
This course is presented in four sections. The first two presentations show how huge data sets can be streamed and displayed in real time for virtual-globe rendering inside a web browser. Topics include pre-processing, storage, and transmission of real-world data, plus cache hierarchies and efficient culling algorithms. The third section reviews content… (More)
The importance of computer learner corpora for research in both second language acquisition and foreign language teaching is rapidly increasing. Computer learner corpora can provide us with data to describe the learner's interlanguage system at different points of its development and they can be used to create pedagogical tools. In this paper, we first… (More)
Creating vast game environments introduces several complex issues that are not present in smaller game worlds. As the size of the world grows issues with floating point precision arise, causing objects to jitter, simulation to become unstable, and rendering to exhibit artifacts. These problems were very apparent during development of Just Cause 2 and had to… (More)

Doing research is a costly and time consuming activity with uncertain return on investment. For small or independent studios without substantial financial backing it can be hard to motivate engaging in research. Today few game studios have dedicated research personnel, even among AAA. Most games are produced either with an off-the-shelf licensed game… (More)
Above-threshold ionization spectra consist of intra- and intercycle interferences of electron trajectories. The former is imprinted as a modulation envelope of discrete peaks formed by the latter. This modulation is clearly seen in the wavelength-dependence.
