AprilTags and other passive fiducial markers require specialized algorithms to detect markers among other features in a natural scene. The vision processing steps generally dominate the computation time of a tag detection pipeline, so even small improvements in marker detection can translate to a faster tag detection system. We incorporated lessons learned(More)
Energy efficiency has become one of the most important considerations for HPC systems, particularly for large scale systems, for economic and environmental reasons and in exceptional cases also social and political. Many approaches are currently being pursued both in regards to architecture and hardware and software technologies to improve energy efficiency(More)
Organizations responding to requests to produce electronically stored information (ESI) for litigation today often conduct information retrieval with a limited amount of data that has first been culled by custodian mailboxes, date ranges, or other factors chosen semi-arbitrarily based on legal negotiations or other exogenous factors. The culling process(More)
In this paper, we empirically evaluate two views on the relation between product market competition and conditional accounting conservatism. One view is that intense product market competition increases bankruptcy risk and consequently, exacerbates shareholder-bondholder conflict of interest and enhances the likelihood of litigation. In response, both(More)

This paper presents several paradigms by which users of Verity business portals (from within as well as from outside an enterprise) discover and navigate relevant semistructured data in corpora with millions of documents. These paradigms include (i) combining free-text and structured queries, (ii) automatic classification, and (iii) personalization.

In this paper, scalable collaborative human-robot systems for information gathering applications are approached as a decentralized Bayesian sensor network problem. Human-computer augmented nodes and autonomous mobile sensor platforms are collaborating on a peer-to-peer basis by sharing information via wireless communication network. For each node, a(More)
This article provides an overview of some of the work that is ongoing in the IEEE P802.3bj 100 Gb/s Backplane and Copper Cable Task Force. The task force is standardizing Ethernet at 100 Gb/s over a 4-lane backplane channel as well as across a 4-lane copper cable. We first describe the background of the market drivers for this technology, and then give an(More)
