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)
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)
– 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)

In this work, we present a system for the automated classiffication of seabed substrates in underwater video. Classiffication of seabed substrates traditionally requires manual analysis by a marine biologist, according to an established classiffication system. Accurate, consistent and robust classiffication is difficult in underwater video due to varying… (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)
