Jazz improvisation is a complex and demanding art of on-the-fly composition and performance. We present coJIVE, a system that allows musically inexperienced people to improvise to jazz by substituting for musical knowledge and experience. Using well-established musical theory, it aids users in creating a harmonic performance, and also helps coordinate a(More)

Conducting an orchestra is a highly sophisticated art form that matured over centuries. In the last few decades, conducting has also become a form of human-computer interaction , giving conductors different ways to enter conducting input with varying degrees of control and varying levels of success in making the computer perform the way the conductor wants(More)
Using social science methods to induce a state of frustration in users, we collected physiological , video and behavioral data, and developed a strategy for coupling these data with real-world events. The eectiveness of the proposed strategy was tested in a study with thirty-six subjects , where the system was shown to reliably synchronize and gather data(More)
The observation of objects located in inaccessible regions is a recurring challenge in a wide variety of important applications. Recent work has shown that using rare and expensive optical setups, indirect diffuse light reflections can be used to reconstruct objects and two-dimensional (2D) patterns around a corner. Here we show that occluded objects can be(More)
"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation."-Henry David Thoreau It is perhaps a fundamental truth to every psychologist and therapist in the United States and elsewhere that the fulfillment of emotional needs is basic and necessary to human well-being. Leading a rich, fulfilling life is intimately tied to being aware of ones emotional needs, and being able(More)
We propose a material classification method using raw time-of-flight (ToF) measurements. ToF cameras capture the correlation between a reference signal and the temporal response of material to incident illumination. Such measurements encode unique signatures of the material, i.e. the degree of subsurface scattering inside a volume. Subsequently , it offers(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Within the past few years, there has been a push for an even more minimally invasive approach to biliary disease with the adoption of single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We sought to compare 4 individual surgeon experiences to define whether there exists a learning curve for performing single-incision laparoscopic(More)
