Pattern analysis constitutes a critical building block in the development of gas sensor array instruments capable of detecting, identifying, and measuring volatile compounds, a technology that has been proposed as an artificial substitute of the human olfactory system. The successful design of a pattern analysis system for machine olfaction requires a(More)
We present attribute bagging (AB), a technique for improving the accuracy and stability of classi#er ensembles induced using random subsets of features. AB is a wrapper method that can be used with any learning algorithm. It establishes an appropriate attribute subset size and then randomly selects subsets of features, creating projections of the training(More)
Registration between two images is a key problem in computer vision. Current methods tend to separate the scale estimation process from translation and rotation estimation. This is due to the fact that the scale parameter is inherently related to the image resolution. In this paper, we present an area-based image registration technique that can(More)
This paper covers the use of depth sensors such as Microsoft Kinect and ASUS Xtion to provide a natural user interface (NUI) for controlling 3-D (three-dimensional) virtual globes such as Google Earth (including its Street View mode), Bing Maps 3D, and NASA World Wind. The paper introduces the Microsoft Kinect device, briefly describing how it works (the(More)
The performance of a pattern recognition system is dependent on, among other things, an appropriate data-preprocessing technique, In this paper, we describe a method to evaluate the performance of a variety of these techniques for the problem of odour classification using an array of gas sensors, also referred to as an electronic nose. Four experimental(More)
This paper presents an integral system capable of generating animations with realistic dynamics, including the individualized nuances, of three-dimensional (3-D) human faces driven by speech acoustics. The system is capable of capturing short phenomena in the orofacial dynamics of a given speaker by tracking the 3-D location of various MPEG-4 facial points(More)
Chronic stress is endemic to modern society. However, as it is unfeasible for physicians to continuously monitor stress levels, its diagnosis is nontrivial. Wireless body sensor networks offer opportunities to ubiquitously detect and monitor mental stress levels, enabling improved diagnosis, and early treatment. This article describes the development of a(More)
The audio/visual mapping problem of speech-driven facial animation has intrigued researchers for years. Recent research efforts have demonstrated that hidden Markov model (HMM) techniques, which have been applied successfully to the problem of speech recognition, could achieve a similar level of success in audio/visual mapping problems. A number of(More)
The purpose of this study is to model the transient response of conductivity-based gas sensors in the context of odor recognition with an electronic nose. Commonly, only the steady-state response of the sensor is used for pattern recognition, ignoring the transient response, which conveys useful discriminatory information. The transient response is modeled(More)
