Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a well-characterized disease affecting a significant population of pregnant women worldwide. It has been widely linked to undue weight gain associated with factors such as diet, obesity, family history, and ethnicity. Poorly controlled GDM results in maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Improved outcomes… (More)
This paper presents a novel approach to evaluating the detection of unusual or interesting events in videos involving certain types of human behaviour, such as pedestrian scenes. The holy grail of computer vision for surveillance can be thought of as an interesting or unusual event detector which when given an input video stream, outputs some form of alarm… (More)
Plant phenotyping is the identification of effects on the phenotype (i.e., the plant appearance and behavior) as a result of genotype differences (i.e., differences in the genetic code) and the environment. Previously, the process of taking phenotypic measurements has been laborious, costly, and time-consuming. In recent years, noninvasive, imaging-based… (More)
—We present a practical approach to capturing ear-to-ear face models comprising both 3D meshes and intrinsic textures (i.e. diffuse and specular albedo). Our approach is a hybrid of geometric and photometric methods and requires no geometric calibration. Photometric measurements made in a lightstage are used to estimate view dependent high resolution normal… (More)
The candidate confirms that the work submitted is their own and the appropriate credit has been given where reference has been made to the work of others. I understand that failure to attribute material which is obtained from another source may be considered as plagiarism. Abstract A compound spatio-temporal entity can be described as a group of objects… (More)
This poster describes the ACOM modules at Leeds University, teaching IT skills to a very large and diverse student body.
– In this paper, a new approach to Virtual Learning Environments is presented. These systems are considered as tools to aid communication both between teaching staff and students and within the student body. Two alternatives to commercial systems are considered, both of which are free to the user and do not enforce any pedagogical model upon teaching… (More)
