—Local binary pattern (LBP) is a nonparametric de-scriptor, which efficiently summarizes the local structures of images. In recent years, it has aroused increasing interest in many areas of image processing and computer vision and has shown its effectiveness in a number of applications, in particular for facial image analysis, including tasks as diverse as(More)
This paper introduces a knowledge-driven approach to real-time, continuous activity recognition based on multisensor data streams in smart homes. The approach goes beyond the traditional data-centric methods for activity recognition in three ways. First, it makes extensive use of domain knowledge in the life cycle of activity recognition. Second, it uses(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is one of the main obstacles in tumor chemotherapy. A promising approach to solving this problem is to utilize a nontoxic and potent modulator able to reverse MDR, which in combination with anticancer drugs increases the anticancer effect. Experiments were carried out to examine the potential of tetrandrine (Tet) as a(More)
automatic analysis may have many applications such as smart human-computer interactions or multimedia indexing. Main difficulties for an efficient speech emotion classification reside in complex emotional class borders leading to necessity of appropriate audio feature selection. While current work in the literature only relies on classical frequency and(More)
This paper presents a robust eye detection algorithm for gray intensity images. The idea of our method is to combine the respective advantages of two existing techniques, feature based method and template based method, and to overcome their shortcomings. Firstly, after the location of face region is detected, a feature based method will be used to detect(More)
Purpose –This paper aims to serve two main purposes. In the first instance it aims to it provide an overview addressing the state-of-the-art in the area of activity recognition, in particular, in the area of object-based activity recognition. This will provide the necessary material to inform relevant research communities of the latest developments in this(More)
—In this study, we present a novel geometric representation for 3D faces in order to enhance distinctiveness of generally smooth range images. This novel face representation is based on Multi-Scale Extended Local Binary Patterns (ELBP) and enables accurate and fast description of local shape variations on range faces. When associated with the proposed(More)
The control of organ size growth is one of the most fundamental aspects of life. In the past two decades, a highly conserved Hippo signaling pathway has been identified as a key molecular mechanism for governing organ size regulation. In the middle of this pathway is a kinase cascade that negatively regulates the downstream component Yes-associated protein(More)
