As multicore PCs begin to get the standard, it becomes increasingly important to utilize these resources. Thus we present a multithreaded realtime vision system, which distributes tasks to given resources on a single offthe-shelf multicore PC, applying an optimal-backoff scheduling strategy. Making use of an asynchronous data management mechanism, the(More)
We present an effective and fast method for static hand gesture recognition. This method is based on classifying the different gestures according to geometric-based invariants which are obtained from image data after segmentation; thus, unlike many other recognition methods, this method is not dependent on skin color. Gestures are extracted from each frame(More)
In this paper, a reliable, fast and robust approach for static hand gesture recognition in the domain of a human-robot interaction system is presented. The method is based on computing the likelihood of different existing gesture-types and assigning a probability to every type by using Bayesian inference rules. For this purpose, two classes of geometrical(More)
In rapidly growing global companies, comprehensive training programs as well as in depth sharing of knowledge are essential factors to maintain the quality of human capital despite rapid expansion. Different dimensions of Knowledge management address the need and approach to leverage dispersed knowledge in order to make it visible and accessible for(More)
Open production communities (OPCs) are online communities in which content is solely generated by users and is publicly available for everyone. By leveraging the manpower and collective intelligence of a vast crowd, these communities facilitate gleaning, structuring, evaluating and sharing information from different perspectives and in different areas of(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to speech recognition using fuzzy modeling. The task begins with conversion of speech spectrogram into a linguistic description based on arbitrary colors and lengths. While phonemes are also described using these fuzzy measures, and recognition is done by normal fuzzy reasoning, a genetic algorithm optimizes phoneme(More)

Zamin artificial life model is designed to be a general purpose environment for researches on evolution of learning methods, living strategies and complex behaviors and is used in several studies thus far. As a main target for Zamin's design has been its expandability and ease of problem definition, a new agent based structure for this artificial world is(More)

The impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on enhancing the quality of services and decreasing the overall costs has been the focus of numerous studies in the last two decades. The introduction and employment of ICT in developing countries, however, has not been as fast and effective as in developed nations. In this paper, a case study(More)
