We present the architecture, technology and experimental applications of a real-time, multi-site, interactive and collaborative environment called Distributed Immersive Performance (DIP). The objective of DIP is to develop the technology for live, interactive musical performances in which the participants - subsets of musicians, the conductor and the(More)
This talk presents the distributed immersive performance (DIP) technologies developed at the Integrated Media Systems Center at the University of Southern California, and the DIP experiments designed to assess the quality of human interaction in these remote environments. The talk represents a summary of the enabling technologies for, and an amalgamation(More)
This report is our second one at the MUSICNETWORK open workshop focusing on the user experiments in the Integrated Media Systems Center's Distributed Immersive Performance (DIP) Project. The DIP project explores the creation of a seamless environment for remote and synchronous musical collaboration. We describe here the DIP experiments and findings since(More)
We propose a hierarchical approach to document categorization that requires no pre-configuration and maps the semantic document space to a predefined taxonomy. The utilization of search engines to train a hierarchical classifier makes our approach more flexible than existing solutions which rely on (human) labeled data and are bound to a specific domain. We(More)
Process breadth and depth completeness is an important factor for evaluating process design adequacy. Current process design strategies and tool-sets poorly support the breadth and depth of business process logic resulting in incomplete business process designs. A framework that integrates the process, activity and resource viewpoints is proposed to address(More)
Ruptured splenic artery aneurysm during pregnancy is a rare event with high maternal and fetal mortality rate. A case of ruptured splenic artery aneurysm in the post partum period is presented. The literature is reviewed on pathophysiology, clinical presentation and management of this rare and potentially fatal entity.
Service resilience in the face of constant business change is an imperative and complex task for any service organization including those in financial services. Yet, due to its systemic complexity, service resilience as a practice in most organisations is performed in an ad-hoc and inefficient manner resulting in periodic disruptions to day-to-day business(More)
