The considerable high quality of Wikipedia articles is often accredited to the large number of users who contribute to Wikipedia's encyclopedia articles, who watch articles and correct errors immediately. In this paper, we are in particular interested in a certain type of Wikipedia articles, namely, the featured articles - articles marked by a community's(More)
We propose a new approach to visualize social networks. Most common network visualizations rely on graph drawing. While without doubt useful, graphs suffer from limitations like cluttering and important patterns may not be realized especially when networks change over time. Our approach adapts pixel-oriented visualization techniques to social networks as an(More)
Qualitative and quantitative representations of space in general and motion in particular have their typical fields of application which are unified in an autonomously moving robot interacting with human beings. Therefore it is necessary to make some considerations on both approaches when dealing with such a robot. This paper presents quantitative and(More)
Documents are recommended by computer-based systems normally according to their prominence in the document reference network. Based on the requirements identified in a concrete use case for recommending scientific publications, the paper claims that merely measuring prominence is insufficient for high quality recommendations. We propose to use information(More)
Mobile intention recognition is the problem of inferring an agent’s intentions from the spatio-temporal behavior she shows. We present a framework for mobile intention recognition that covers all levels, from low-level position data to high-level intentions, with the detailed structure of the motion track as an intermediate level. Our framework is new in(More)
Most common network visualizations rely on graph drawing. While without doubt useful, graphs suffer from limitations like cluttering and important patterns may not be realized especially when networks change over time. We propose a novel approach for the visualization of user interactions in social networks: a pixeloriented visualization of a graphical(More)
OBJECTIVE Although Guglielmi detachable coil systems have been widely accepted for treatment of intracranial aneurysms, primary stenting of aneurysms using porous stents, stent grafts, or implantation of coils after stent placement constitute emerging techniques in endovascular treatment. The aim of the present study was to use an animal model to(More)
The Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) has been generally accepted for treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Preclinical testing of new coil developments requires animal models of aneurysms which imitate human aneurysms in size, configuration and neck morphology. We assessed in detail the technical requirements and steps for transfemoral treatment of(More)
