HYPERBOLIC POLYNOMIAL DIFFEOMORPHISMS OF C
In this paper we develop a general framework for verifying hyperbolicity of holomorphic dynamical systems in C. This framework in particular enables us to construct the first example of a hyperbolicExpand

Visualization of Respiration in the Embodied Virtual Communication System and Its Evaluation
TLDR
A proposed embodied virtual communication system provides a virtual face-to-face communication environment in which two remote talkers can share embodied interaction by observing their interaction with two types of avatars. Expand

TLDR
We have developed an embodied avatar mediated communication system by using a human avatar called the 'VirtualActor' and an abstract avatar called 'VirtualWave' within the same communication space. Expand

Evaluation of embodied avatar manipulation based on talker’s hand motion by using 3D trackball
TLDR
An embodied avatar-mediated communication system using three pointing devices-a wireless mouse, trackball, and 3D mouse-are developed for primitive interaction using conscious hand motion input in a general PC environment. Expand

  • 12 November 2012
TLDR
We developed an embodied video communication system in which a human-type avatar called “VirtualActor,” engaging in interactive behavior, was superimposed on the other speech partner's video image in a virtual face-to-face scene. Expand

Development of a nursing communication education support system using nurse-patient embodied avatars with a smile and eyeball movement model
Facial expressions, such as a smile and gaze line, play an important role in nursing communication. Nursing students need to learn and understand how to communicate with patients through experience.Expand

Ghatcha: GHost Avatar on a Telework CHAir
TLDR
We propose the concept of a presence sharing system Ghatcha [GHost Avatar on a Telework CHAir] in which the users' embodiment is not indicated by the avatars but by the chairs that suggest the presence of avatars. Expand

Evaluation of a video communication system with speech-driven embodied entrainment audience characters with partner's face
TLDR
We previously proposed an embodied video communication system called E-VChat, in which a computer-generated (CG) avatar is superimposed on the other talker's video image in a face-to-face scene, so that they can better comprehend their mutual interactions during remote communication. Expand

Behavioral Analysis Using Cumulative Playback Time for Identifying Task Hardship of Instruction Video
TLDR
We propose the CPT (Cumulative Playback Time) and normalized CPT as a more generic calculation for the time consumed by user operations for watching of a video. Expand
