In this paper, we propose a two-step method to recognize multiple-food images by detecting candidate regions with several methods and classifying them with various kinds of features. In the first step, we detect several candidate regions by fusing outputs of several region detectors including Felzenszwalb's deformable part model (DPM) [1], a circle detector(More)
The aims of this study were (1) to evaluate changes in muscle activity associated with physiological fatigue and decreased swimming velocity (SV) during 200 m of front crawl swimming, and (2) to examine the relationship between the decreased SV and changes in kinematic or electromyogram parameters. Twenty swimmers participated in a 4 × 50-m swim test. The(More)
The nature of quantum spin liquids, a novel state of matter where strong quantum fluctuations destroy the long-range magnetic order even at zero temperature, is a long-standing issue in physics. We measured the low-temperature thermal conductivity of the recently discovered quantum spin liquid candidate, the organic insulator EtMe3Sb[Pd(dmit)2]2. A sizable(More)
In this paper, we propose a method to recognize food images which include multiple food items considering co-occurrence statistics of food items. The proposed method employs a manifold ranking method which has been applied to image retrieval successfully in the literature. In the experiments , we prepared co-occurrence matrices of 100 food items using(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the difference in muscle activation pattern and co-contraction of the rectus and biceps femoris in flutter-kick swimming between competitive and recreational swimmers, to better understand the mechanism of repetitive kicking movements during swimming. Ten competitive and 10 recreational swimmers swam using flutter(More)
Many HRI researchers try to make guidelines for an appearance of the robot. However, these guidelines are insufficient to design and to evaluate a robot's appearance separately. We propose new evaluation framework called " variable body image " to solve this problem. This framework changes the appearance of a robot with divided human-like robotic parts and(More)
