A majority of the existing stereo matching algorithms assume that the corresponding color values are similar to each other. However, it is not so in practice as image color values are often affected by various radiometric factors such as illumination direction, illuminant color, and imaging device changes. For this reason, the raw color recorded by a camera(More)
Most high dynamic range image (HDRI) algorithms assume stationary scene for registering multiple images which are taken under different exposure settings. In practice, however, there can be some global or local movements between images caused by either camera or object motions. This situation usually causes ghost artifacts which make the same object appear(More)
The availability of accurate depth cameras have made real-time human pose estimation possible; however, there are still demands for faster algorithms on low power processors. This paper introduces 1000 frames per second pose estimation method on a single core CPU. A large computation gain is achieved by random walk sub-sampling. Instead of training trees(More)
In this paper, we propose a method that infers both accurate depth maps and color-consistent stereo images for radiometrically varying stereo images. In general, stereo matching and performing color consistency between stereo images are a chicken-and-egg problem since it is not a trivial task to simultaneously achieve both goals. Hence, we have developed an(More)
Color information can be used as a basic and crucial cue for finding correspondence in a stereo matching algorithm. In a real scene, however, image colors are affected by various geometric and radiometric factors. For this reason, the raw color recorded by a camera is not a reliable cue, and the color consistency assumption is no longer valid between stereo(More)
In this paper, we propose a new algorithm that solves both the stereo matching and the image denoising problem simultaneously for a pair of noisy stereo images. Most stereo algorithms employ L1 or L2 intensity error-based data costs in the MAP-MRF framework by assuming the naive intensity-constancy. These data costs make typical stereo algorithms suffer(More)
Radiometric variations between input images can seriously degrade the performance of stereo matching algorithms. In this situation, mutual information is a very popular and powerful measure which can find any global relationship of intensities between two input images taken from unknown sources. The mutual information-based method, however, is still(More)
BACKGROUND Worldwide restrictions in animal use for research have driven efforts to develop alternative methods. OBJECTIVE The study aimed to test the efficacy of the macrophage inflammatory protein-1beta (MIP-1beta) assay for testing chemicals' skin-sensitizing capacity. METHODS The assay was performed using 9 chemicals judged to be sensitizing and 7(More)
Several alternative in vitro methods to evaluate skin irritants have been developed recently. In July 2010, OECD officially endorsed the validated reference method (VRM) that uses reconstituted human epidermis (RhE) models as replacements for the in vivo skin irritation test. This study evaluated the KeraSkin-VM model, a novel human epidermis model that was(More)
Immunomodulatory effects of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) demonstrated using animals are thymic atrophy, downregulation of cytotoxic T or B lymphocyte differentiation or activation, whereas human immunotoxicities have not been investigated well. This study was undertaken to evaluate overall immunologic spectrum of the Vietnam War Korean(More)
