Semi-structured data records contained in the Web pages provide useful information for shopping agents and metasearch engines. In this paper, we present a visual segmentation-based data record extraction (VSDR) method to extract data records from those Web pages. VSDR method first segments a Web page into semantic blocks using the spatial closeness and(More)
Emotional illiteracy exists in current e-learning environment, which will decay learning enthusiasm and productivity, and now gets more attentions in recent researches. Inspired by affective computing and active listening strategy, in this paper, a research and application framework of recognizing emotion based on textual interaction is presented first.(More)
In this paper, we present a general approach for statistically evaluating precision of search engines on the Web. Search engines are evaluated in two steps based on a large number of sample queries: (a) computing relevance scores of hits from each search engine, and (b) ranking the search engines based on statistical comparison of the relevance scores. In(More)
In this paper, we present a new method for automatically comparing the performance, such as precision, of search engines. Based on queries randomly selected from a specific domain of interest, the method uses robots to automatically query the target search engines, evaluates the relevance of the returned links to the query either automatically based on the(More)
In this paper, a novel algorithm is proposed to carry out automatic 3D shape matching with 3D shapes represented as sets of points. After the possible matches between the 3D shapes have been determined by the tradition ICP criterion, the novel approach employs the collinearity constraint to eliminate false matches based on a statistical model. A comparative(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm for the automatic registration of two overlapping range images. Since it is relatively difficult to compare the registration errors of different point matches, we project them onto a virtual image plane for more accurate comparison using the classical pin-hole perspective projection camera model. While the(More)
Existing integration algorithms often assume that the registration error of neighbouring views is an order of magnitude less than the measurement error [3]. This assumption is very restrictive that automatic registration algorithms can hardly meet. In this paper, we develop a novel integration algorithm, robust to both large registration errors and heavy(More)
