In this paper an approach for motion capture of dressed people is presented. A cloth draping method is incorporated in a silhouette based motion capture system. This leads to a simultaneous estimation of pose, joint angles, cloth draping parameters and wind forces. An error functional is formalized to minimize the involved parameters simultaneously.

Branch indices of points on curves (introduced by Urysohn and Menger) are of basic importance in the mathematical theory of curves, defined in Euclidean space. This paper applies the concept of branch points in the 3D orthogonal grid, motivated by the need to analyze curve-like structures in digital images. These curve-like structures have been derived as(More)
The relative convex hull, or the minimum-perimeter polygon (MPP) of a simple polygon A, contained in a second polygon B, is a unique polygon in the set of nested polygons between A and B. The computation of the minimum-length polygon (MLP), as a special case for isothetic polygons A and B, is useful for various applications in image analysis and robotics.(More)
Linked Open Data (LOD) is growing rapidly as a source of structured knowledge used in a variety of text processing applications. However, the applications using the LOD need to be able to mediate between the front end user interfaces and LOD. This often requires a natural language interpretation of this structured, linked data. We demonstrate a middle-tier(More)
DBpedia encodes massive amounts of open domain knowledge and is growing by accumulating more triples at the same rate as Wikipedia. However, the applications often require natural language formulations of these triples to present the information as a natural text. The RealText lex2 framework offers a scalable platform to transform these triples to natural(More)
Linked Data has emerged as the most widely used and the most powerful knowledge source for Question Answering (QA). Although Question Answering using Linked Data (QALD) fills in many gaps in the traditional QA models, the answers are still presented as factoids. This research introduces an answer presentation model for QALD by employing Natural Language(More)
