The Tele-immersive Dance Environment (TED) is a geographically distributed, real-time 3-D virtual room where multiple participants interact independent of physical distance. TED, a highly interactive collaborative environment, offers digital options with multiple viewpoints, enhancing the creative movement composition involved with dance choreography. A(More)
As an emerging technology, 3D video has shown a great potential to become the next generation media for tele-immersion. However, streaming and rendering this dynamic 3D data in real-time requires tremendous network bandwidth and computing resources. In this paper, we build a remote rendering model to better study different remote rendering designs and(More)
Immune activation and inflammation play critical roles in the development of heart failure (HF). Human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) is a nonclassical, major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) protein, upregulated in the context of transplantation, malignancy, and inflammation, and has been correlated with various clinical outcomes. We sought to(More)

We present MethMorph, a system for producing realistic simulations of how drug-free people would look if they used methamphetamine. Significant weight loss and facial lesions are common side effects of meth usage. MethMorph fully automates the process of thinning the face and applying lesions to healthy faces. We combine several recently-developed detection(More)
Panoramic images capture cityscapes of dense urban structures by mapping multiple images from different viewpoints into a single composite image. One challenge to their construction is that objects that lie at di fferent depth are often not stitched correctly in the panorama. The problem is especially troublesome for objects occupying large horizontal(More)
In this demonstration, we present WiiView, a view control interface for 3D tele-immersive (3DTI) environments. This interface allows the user to intuitively manipulate the virtual camera and graphical objects in a 3D tele-immersive virtual space, thus significantly enhancing the viewing experience for users in 3DTI collaboration. We have used WiiView in a(More)
BACKGROUND Flax is a food and fiber crop that is grown in some regions of the world. Its value will account for its great popularity as a food, medical and cosmetic applications. Flax fibers are taken from the stem of the plant and are two to three times as strong as cotton. In this study, we compared brain weight and plasma sex hormone levels in young and(More)
The classification of 3d point cloud data is an important component of applications such as map generation and architectural modeling. However, the complexity of the scenes together with the level of noise in the data acquired through mobile laser range-scanning make this task quite difficult. We propose a novel classification method that relies on a(More)
