Social Signal Processing

Social Signal Processing

Author: Judee K. (University of Arizona) Burgoon Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/08/2019

Social Signal Processing is the first book to cover all aspects of the modeling, automated detection, analysis, and synthesis of nonverbal behavior in human-human and human-machine interactions. Authoritative surveys address conceptual foundations, machine analysis and synthesis of social signal processing, and applications. Foundational topics include affect perception and interpersonal coordination in communication; later chapters cover technologies for automatic detection and understanding such as computational paralinguistics and facial expression analysis and for the generation of artificial social signals such as social robots and artificial agents. The final section covers a broad spectrum of applications based on social signal processing in healthcare, deception detection, and digital cities, including detection of developmental diseases and analysis of small groups. Each chapter offers a basic introduction to its topic, accessible to students and other newcomers, and then outlines challenges and future perspectives for the benefit of experienced researchers and practitioners in the field.

Robust Embedded Intelligence on Cellular Neural Networks

Robust Embedded Intelligence on Cellular Neural Networks

Machine Intelligence (MI) is the motor that drives the modern information-rich society. Supercomputing and parallel coding have made MI programs feasible and the theoretical base of MI has matured. Graphical Processors (GPs) have found new life as carrier for low-cost supercomputing. The road towards lower cost & size leads to embedding systems, such as self-driving cars and intelligent houses. Machine intelligence has not only opened many disruptive venues but given simultaneously a lot of anxiety. Compared to the many accidents in the early days of automotive traffic, the few problems with the TESLA cars are already sufficient for major concern. Evidently, still research is required to bring MI on the appropriate safety levels that rule the type tests for acceptance on the European automotive market. In the ACM Turing Award 2018, Hennessey and Patterson prophesize the breakthrough of Domain-Specific Processor. A typical example is the modern vision hardware in the automotive domain. Such applications bring collectively self-driving in reach for safety concerns. It features a domain-specific mix of hardware and software. Hardware can be correctly designed & manufactured and will not change afterwards. Software can be formally proven but efficiency requires to keep it close to the platform. Robust Embedded Intelligence on Cellular Neural Networks makes the reader familiar with the mathematical and electronic techniques to turn a data-driven problem into a safe embedded solution. In particular, it treats aspects on Cellular Neural Networks (CNN) for reliable visual recognition in a wide range of practical applications, highlighting vein feature extraction and license plate recognition.

Advances in Computer Application and Signal Processing

Author: Janahanlal Stephen Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/06/2019

Addresses academicians and professional researchers who are innovating ideas that help not only human beings but enlighten the entire universe as well. As researchers developing new ideas in such varied areas as engineering, medicine, and biotechnology, new ideas represent continuity from old research by other researchers. Advances in Computer Application and Signal Processing is a book that covers a broad range of cutting edge research done by specialists in various fields. It is our belief that, as ever, scientists, lecturers, scholars, craftsmen, and students are under one academic roof with us, in this volume to be published by Academica Press. Beyond question, this collection of articles will add to existing computer knowledge and technology as well as to the field of Information Technology generally. This added value caps a wide scope ranging from software engineering to e-commerce, from telecommunication to e-learning, and from modern management to globalization. Merger of these areas will lead to an integrated and pioneering approach in the fields of science and technology. Our intention is that this collection will bridge the gap between industry and education and minimize the existing overlaps among the research presented. On the other hand, cooperation among experts and scholars will provide a strong link among individuals and organizations at various fields.

The Signal The History of Signal Processing and How We Communicate

The Signal The History of Signal Processing and How We Communicate

Author: Ted G Lewis Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/05/2019

Computers are the foundation of the information age, but communication technology is the foundation of the foundation. Without the theories and practical applications of theory brought to us by the pioneers of communication, the computer age would perhaps have remained in the back office, hidden away as infrastructure like electricity or running water - critical to modern life, but not as transforming as the combination of communications and computing. The information age exploded once machines were endowed with the ability to talk among themselves. The Signal connects everything to everything else, in both communication, and in the metaphorical sense as the link between and among people. Features Identifies the key ideas underlying modern communications technology, and documents the contributions of its inventors Explores the signal in communication, and also in the metaphorical sense as the link between and among people Leads the reader through a journey from ancient number systems to Voyager II to radio and MP3s to quantum cryptography Includes coverage of Signals from Hell, including memes and fake news on the Internet Looks to the future of communication, with emergent 5G

Discrete Cosine Transform, Second Edition

Discrete Cosine Transform, Second Edition

Many new DCT-like transforms have been proposed since the first edition of this book. For example, the integer DCT that yields integer transform coefficients, the directional DCT to take advantage of several directions of the image and the steerable DCT. The advent of higher dimensional frames such as UHDTV and 4K-TV demand for small and large transform blocks to encode small or large similar areas respectively in an efficient way. Therefore, a new updated book on DCT, adapted to the modern days, considering the new advances in this area and targeted for students, researchers and the industry is a necessity.
