The use of SVM (Support Vector Machine) as component classifier in AdaBoost may seem like going against the grain of the Boosting principle since SVM is not an easy classifier to train. Moreover, Wickramaratna et al. [2001. Performance degradation in boosting. In: Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Multiple Classifier Systems, pp. 11–21](More)
In this paper, we present a novel approach, called the " one-circle " algorithm, for measuring the eye gaze using a monocular image that zooms in on only one eye of a person. Observing that the iris contour is a circle, we estimate the normal direction of this iris circle, considered as the eye gaze, from its elliptical image. From basic projective(More)
There are two components to the human visual line-of-sight: pose of human head and the orientation of the eye within their sockets. We have investigated these two aspects but will concentrate on eye gaze estimation. We present a novel approach called the "one-circle" algorithm for measuring the eye gaze using a monocular image that zooms in on only one eye(More)
A deformable-model based approach is presented in this paper for robust detection of optic disk and cup boundaries. Earlier work on disk boundary detection up to now could not effectively solve the problem of vessel occlusion. The method proposed here improves and extends the original snake, which is essentially a deforming-only technique, in two aspects:(More)
Antagonists at serotonin type 6 (5-HT(6)) receptors show activity in models of learning and memory. Although the underlying mechanism(s) are not well understood, these effects may involve an increase in acetylcholine (ACh) levels. The present study sought to characterize the cognitive-enhancing effects of the 5-HT(6) antagonist Ro4368554(More)
