We study the daily and intradaily cross-sectional relation between stock returns and the trading of institutional and individual investors in Nasdaq 100 securities. Based on the previous day's stock return, the top performing decile of securities is 23.9% more likely to be bought in net by institutions (and sold by individuals) than those in the bottom(More)
The Menpo Project, hosted at http://www.menpo.io, is a BSD-licensed software platform providing a complete and comprehensive solution for annotating, building, fitting and evaluating deformable visual models from image data. Menpo is a powerful and flexible cross-platform framework written in Python that works on Linux, OS X and Windows. Menpo has been(More)
We present Large Scale Facial Model (LSFM) - a 3D Morphable Model (3DMM) automatically constructed from 9,663 distinct facial identities. To the best of our knowledge LSFM is the largest-scale Morphable Model ever constructed, containing statistical information from a huge variety of the human population. To build such a large model we introduce a novel(More)
Recognition and interference of a nontarget language (Russian) during production in a target language (English) were tested in Russian-English bilinguals using eye movements and picture naming. In Experiment 1, Russian words drew more eye movements and delayed English naming to a greater extent than control nonwords and English translation equivalents. In(More)
Establishing inter-mesh dense correspondence is a key step in the process of constructing Morphable Models. The most successful approaches to date reduce this 3D correspondence problem to a 2D image morphing one by applying an interpolant in UV space - a space in which the manifold of the face is flattened into a contiguous 2D atlas. Contiguous UV spaces(More)

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or reproduction. One of three specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to(More)
3D Morphable Models (3DMMs) are powerful statistical models of 3D facial shape and texture, and among the state-of-the-art methods for reconstructing facial shape from single images. With the advent of new 3D sensors, many 3D facial datasets have been collected containing both neutral as well as expressive faces. However, all datasets are captured under(More)
(2007). Age-of-acquisition effects in the development of a bilingual advantage for word learning. 1. Bilingual advantage in cognitive processing Recent work examining interactions between linguistic experience and cognition suggests that bilingualism can positively influence some aspects of cognitive processing (e. Bialystok et al. localize the positive(More)
The Menpo Project [1] is a BSD-licensed set of tools and software designed to provide an end-to-end pipeline for collection and annotation of image and 3D mesh data. In particular, the Menpo Project provides tools for annotating images and meshes with a sparse set of fiducial markers that we refer to as landmarks. For example, Figure 1 shows an example of a(More)
