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)
We present MethMorph, a system for producing realistic simulations of how drug-free people would look if they used metham-phetamine. 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(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)
BACKGROUND One of the major problems of the aged women or older than 35 is getting pregnant in the late fertility life. Fertility rates begin to decline gradually at the age of 30, more so at 35, and markedly at 40. Even with fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization, women have more difficulty in getting pregnant or may deliver abnormal fetus.(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 mod-eling. 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)
