By Vishnu Nath, Stephen E. Levinson (auth.)

This SpringerBrief unearths the most recent options in desktop imaginative and prescient and laptop studying on robots which are designed as exact and effective army snipers. Militaries worldwide are investigating this expertise to simplify the time, price and defense measures worthwhile for education human snipers. those robots are built by way of combining an important elements of laptop technology study components together with picture processing, robot kinematics and studying algorithms. The authors clarify how a brand new humanoid robotic, the iCub, makes use of high-speed cameras and laptop imaginative and prescient algorithms to trace the thing that has been labeled as a objective. The robotic adjusts its arm and the gun muzzle for max accuracy, because of a neural version that incorporates the parameters of its joint angles, the rate of the bullet and the approximate distance of the objective. a radical literature evaluate presents useful context for the experiments. Of functional curiosity to army forces all over the world, this short is designed for execs and researchers operating in army robotics. it's going to even be beneficial for complex point computing device technology scholars concerned with machine imaginative and prescient, AI and laptop studying issues.

Computer Vision for Human-Machine Interaction

Fresh advances within the box of machine imaginative and prescient are resulting in novel and radical alterations within the manner we have interaction with pcs. it is going to quickly be attainable to permit a working laptop or computer associated with a video digital camera to discover the presence of clients, song faces, fingers and arms in genuine time, and examine expressions and gestures.

Plan, Activity, and Intent Recognition: Theory and Practice

Plan acceptance, task acceptance, and purpose reputation jointly mix and unify innovations from consumer modeling, desktop imaginative and prescient, clever consumer interfaces, human/computer interplay, self sustaining and multi-agent platforms, common language realizing, and laptop studying. Plan, task, and reason attractiveness explains the an important position of those concepts in a large choice of purposes together with: .

Online Social Media Analysis and Visualization

This edited quantity addresses the titanic demanding situations of adapting on-line Social Media (OSM) to constructing study equipment and purposes. the subjects hide producing sensible social community topologies, knowledge of person actions, subject and development new release, estimation of consumer attributes from their social content material, habit detection, mining social content material for universal tendencies, deciding upon and rating social content material assets, development friend-comprehension instruments, and so forth.
