Communicated by (xxxxxxxxxx) We present an algorithm for finding a meaningful vertex-to-vertex correspondence between two triangle meshes, which is designed to handle general non-rigid transformations. Our algorithm operates on embeddings of the two shapes in the spectral domain so as to normalize them with respect to uniform scaling and rigid-body(More)
We present an approach for robust shape retrieval from databases containing articulated 3D models. Each shape is represented by the eigenvectors of an appropriately defined affinity matrix, forming a spectral embedding which achieves normalization against rigid-body transformations, uniform scaling, and shape articulation (i.e., bending). Retrieval is(More)
In this paper, we apply Nyström method, a sub-sampling and reconstruction technique, to speed up spectral mesh processing. We first relate this method to Kernel Principal Component Analysis (KPCA). This enables us to derive a novel measure in the form of a matrix trace, based soly on sampled data, to quantify the quality of Nyström approximation. The(More)
We investigate the use of two visual descriptors: Local Binary Patterns-Three Orthogonal Planes(LBP-TOP) and Dense Trajectories for depression assessment on the AVEC 2014 challenge dataset. We encode the visual information generated by the two descriptors using Fisher Vector encoding which has been shown to be one of the best performing methods to encode(More)
—Detecting the presence of licensed users and avoiding interference to them is vital to the proper operation of a Cognitive Radio (CR) network. Operating in a wideband channel requires high Nyquist sampling rates, which is limited by the state-of-the-art A/D converters. Compressive sampling is a promising solution to reduce sampling rates required in modern(More)
It has been reported that outsourcing specialist knowledge work can enable business excellence by enhancing business competitiveness, economic value added service, quality, and market branding. Much of this may be supported by seamless technical communication flows between the vendors and clients of an outsourcing project. However, the potential loss of(More)
