A Multimodal Approach to Mapping Soundscapes
We explore the problem of mapping soundscapes, that is, predicting the types of sounds that are likely to be heard at a given geographic location. Using a novel dataset, which includes geo-taggedExpand

Learning Geo-Temporal Image Features
We propose to implicitly learn to extract geo-temporal image features, which are mid-level features related to when and where an image was captured, by explicitly optimizing for a set of location andExpand

Role of extracellular matrix remodelling gene SNPs in keratoconus
ABSTRACT Introduction: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes for certain structural components may be implicated in the pathogenesis of keratoconus. We hypothesized links between SNPs inExpand

Remote Estimation of Free-Flow Speeds
We propose an automated method to estimate a road segment’s free-flow speed from overhead imagery and road meta-data. The free-flow speed of a road segment is the average observed vehicle speed inExpand
