Exploiting the information technology may have a great impact on improving cooperation and interoperability among the different professionals taking part to the process of delivering health care services. New paradigms are therefore being devised considering software systems as autonomous agents able to help professionals in accomplishing their duties. To(More)
This paper describes a methodology for representing clinical practice guidelines and facilitating their introduction into the medical routine. Since this methodology can be exploited in a www environment, it can represent the basis for sharing clinical guidelines both between different institutions and between human and software agents cooperating within a(More)
Rice is the most important food security crop in Asia. Information on its seasonal extent forms part of the national accounting of many Asian countries. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery is highly suitable for detecting lowland rice, especially in tropical and subtropical regions, where pervasive cloud cover in the rainy seasons precludes the use of(More)
This paper presents the preliminary results of VIAC, the VisLab Intercontinental Autonomous Challenge, a test of autonomous driving along an unknown route from Italy to China. It took 3 months to run the entire test; all data have been logged, including all data generated by the sensors, vehicle data, and GPS info. This huge amount of information has been(More)
This paper presents the results of an all-day-long pedestrian classification system based on an AdaBoost cascade meta-algorithm. The underlying idea is to use a Haar-features-based AdaBoost together with an ad-hoc-features-based AdaBoost system in order to reach a better pedestrian classification. A specific night-time pedestrian classification is developed(More)
This paper presents the results of an innovative approach to pedestrian detection for automotive applications in which a non-reversible system is used; therefore the aim is to reach a very low false detection rate, ideally zero, by searching for pedestrians in specific areas only.
One goal of the Remote Sensing based Information and Insurance for Crops in emerging Economies (RIICE) project is to estimate, on an operational basis, rice production at national scale in primis targeted to food security and crop insurance purposes. There are two unique elements to this proposed service: 1. Multi-year, annual, and seasonal SAR data are(More)
In 2003 the World Calibration Centre for volatile organic compounds (WCC-VOC) which forms part of the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) program coordinated the first comprehensive intercomparison exercise among the GAW-VOC community. The intercomparison focused on a synthetic C2–C11 VOC standard mixture in nitrogen (N2) and involved nine different(More)
