We present the first empirical study on using color manipulation and stylization to make surgery images more palatable. While aversion to such images is natural, it limits many people's ability to satisfy their curiosity, educate themselves, and make informed decisions. We selected a diverse set of image processing techniques, and tested them both on surgeons and lay people. While many artistic methods were found unusable by surgeons, edge-preserving image smoothing gave good results both in… Expand
Reducing Affective Responses to Surgical Images and Videos Through Stylization
This first empirical study on using colour manipulation and stylization to make surgery images/videos more palatable and edge‐preserving image smoothing yielded good results both for preserving information and reducing repulsiveness. Expand
A comprehensive survey on non-photorealistic rendering and benchmark developments for image abstraction and stylization
The inference drawn from the survey is the computer system using a stylus to fully automatic structure-preserving image abstraction and stylization got evolved from a traditional method of human interaction. Expand
Surgical Video Summarization
While surgical videos are valuable support material for activities around surgery, their summarization demands great amounts of time from surgeons, resulting in the production of very few videos. WeExpand
Service-based Analysis and Abstraction for Content Moderation of Digital Images
This paper presents a service-based approach towards content moderation of digital visual media while browsing web pages. It enables the automatic analysis and classification of possibly offensiveExpand
A Study on Visual Representations for Active Plant Wall Data Analysis
The indoor climate is closely related to human health, well-being, and comfort, and one way to improve the indoor climates is to place an aestheti in the context of the outdoors. Expand
Towards an Understanding of Augmented Reality Extensions for Existing 3D Data Analysis Tools
The goal is to allow researchers to integrate stereoscopic AR-based visual representations and interaction techniques into their tools, and thus ultimately to increase the adoption of modern immersive analytics techniques in existing data analysis workflows. Expand
Surgical Video Summarization: Multifarious Uses, Summarization Process and Ad-Hoc Coordination
HAL is a multi-disciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching andExpand
Open Up: A Survey on Open and Non-anonymized Peer Reviewing
We present a discussion and analysis regarding the benefits and limitations of open and non-anonymized peer review based on literature results and responses to a survey on the reviewing process ofExpand
Open up: a survey on open and non-anonymized peer reviewing
The main quantitative result is that respondents are more positive to open and non-anonymized reviewing for alt.chi than for other parts of the CHI conference, which concurs with a number of recent studies that suggest a divergence between support for a more open review process and its practical implementation.

Evaluation of emotional response to non-photorealistic images
A study of subjective emotional response to five common NPR approaches, two blurring techniques, and the original image with 42 participants found that the NPR algorithms dampened participants' emotional responses in terms of arousal (activation) and valence (pleasure). Expand
Emotional response and visual attention to non-photorealistic images
Gaze data revealed that NPR rendering of images might reduce emotional response to an image by producing confusion, creating distracting visual artifacts, causing the loss of meaningful semantic information, or causing users to lose interest in the resulting image. Expand
Authorial subjective evaluation of non-photorealistic images
By carefully laying out the important elements of the intended image style, and then evaluating their results according to their adherence to the style, researchers can produce convincing evaluations with a manageable level of effort. Expand
Empathic painting: interactive stylization through observed emotional state
A suite of Computer Vision algorithms capable of recognising users' facial expressions through the detection of facial action units derived from the FACS scheme is described, providing a novel user interactive experience using only commodity hardware. Expand
Human facial illustrations: Creation and psychophysical evaluation
These studies show that the facial illustrations and caricatures generated using the techniques presented are as effective as photographs in recognition tasks. Expand
Stylization and abstraction of photographs
This work describes a computational approach to stylizing and abstracting photographs that explicitly responds to the design goal of good information design and represents a new alternative for non-photorealistic rendering both in its visual style, in its approach to visual form, and in its techniques for interaction. Expand
Benchmarking non-photorealistic rendering of portraits
It is found that the existing methods are generally effective on this new image set, demonstrating that level one of the benchmark is tractable; challenges remain at level two. Expand
Rendering and Affect
This paper summarizes a series of experiments that investigate affective (emotive) qualities of images and explains how the interpretation of these results requires a high‐level model of cognitive information processing, and uses such a model to account for recent empirical results on rendering and judgement.

Image stylization by interactive oil paint filtering
This paper presents an interactive system for transforming images into an oil paint look that employs non-linear filtering based on the smoothed structure adapted to the main feature contours of the quantized image to synthesize a paint texture in real-time. Expand
A benchmark image set for evaluating stylization
A preliminary set of benchmark images are proposed, representing a range of possible subject matter and image features of interest to researchers, and the policies, tradeoffs, and reasoning that led to the particular images in the set are described. Expand
