Visual saliency is an important cue in human visual system to detect salient objects in natural scenes. It has attracted a lot of research focus in computer vision, and has been widely used in many applications including image retrieval, object recognition, image segmentation, and etc. However, the accuracy of salient object detection model remains a(More)
Saliency computational model with active environment perception can be useful for many applications including image segmentation, image compression, image retrieval, and etc. Conventional saliency computational models rely on handcrafted low level features, such as color or contrast. These models face great difficulties in low lighting scenarios, due to the(More)
Saliency computational model with active environment perception can substantially facilitate a wide range of applications. Conventional saliency computational models primarily rely on hand-crafted low level image features, such as color or contrast. However, they may face great challenges in low lighting scenario, due to the lack of well-defined feature to(More)
Oxy-fuel combustion is burning a fuel in oxygen rather than air for ease of capture of CO 2 from for reuse or sequestration. Corrosion issues associated with the environment change (replacement of much of the N 2 with CO 2 and higher sulfur levels) from air-to oxy-firing were examined. Alloys studied included model Fe–Cr alloys and commercial ferritic(More)
Salient object detection model with active environment perception can substantially facilitate a wide range of applications. Conventional models primarily rely on handcrafted low-level image features or high-level features. However, these models may face great challenges in low-lighting scenario, due to the lack of well-defined features to represent(More)
Human can quickly and effortlessly focus on a few most interesting points in an image. Different observers tend to have the same fixations towards the same scene. In order to predict observer's fixations, eye gaze information can be used to reveal human attention and interest. This paper presents a real-time eye gaze tracking system.

With the integration of mobile devices into ubiquitous environments, a wide range of services can be provided by exploiting the resources on heterogeneous devices, especially in MANETs. Because resources on mobile devices are shared out, it is essential to arrange highly-limited resources effectively and reasonably while considering utilities of multi-users(More)
