The extended use of networking and the availability of multimedia processing and
sharing applications have clearly gained momentum in the informationised society
where Interactive Multimedia theories, technologies, applications and systems stage
the principal role, as they furnish users with the necessary communication tools. In
that respect, multimedia-enabled devices and tablet computers support fully featured
interactive multimedia applications and cover wide-ranging interaction requirements
from communication and business to games and interactive art.
This multimedia resource offers a complete introduction to histology with superb clear and thoroughly labelled images and illustrations within an elegant navigation structure. Digital Histology is an interactive, annotated digital atlas of over 700 original micrographs, along with an accompanying review text. It is ideal for use as a tool for teaching, self-instruction, and self-assessment, as it was initially designed to replace or augment the laboratory component of graduate and undergraduate courses....
While the loss likely caused by environmental and other impacts besides
earthquakes in the life cycle of a structure, additional effects will be studied in
future and this paper focuses on limit the impact of the earthquake. This section explains the method to calculate forces seismic design goals.
This book explains, collects and reports on the latest research results that aim at narrowing the so-called multimedia "Semantic Gap": the large disparity between descriptions of multimedia content that can be computed automatically, and the richness and subjectivity of semantics in user queries and human interpretations of audiovisual media. Addressing the grand challenge posed by the "Semantic Gap" requires a multi-disciplinary approach (computer science, computer vision and signal processing, cognitive science, web science, etc....
Ever since the advent of automatic computation devices,
efforts have been made to answer the question of how to
properly integrate them and take advantage of their capabilities
in education. Educational multimedia systems
promise to make learning easier, more convenient, and thus
more effective. For example, classroom teaching enriched
by vivid presentations promise to improve the motivation
of the learner. Concepts may be given a perceivable existence
in a video show and the observability of important
details can be stressed.
am delighted to see a book on multimedia semantics covering metadata, analysis, and
interaction edited by three very active researchers in the field: Troncy, Huet, and Schenk.
This is one of those projects that are very difficult to complete because the field is
advancing rapidly in many different dimensions. At any time, you feel that many important
emerging areas may not be covered well unless you see the next important conference in
the field. A state of the art book remains a moving, often elusive, target. But this is only a
part of the dilemma.
This paper presents Archivus, a multimodal language-enabled meeting browsing and retrieval system. The prototype is in an early stage of development, and we are currently exploring the role of natural language for interacting in this relatively unfamiliar and complex domain. We brieﬂy describe the design and implementation status of the system, and then focus on how this system is used to elicit useful data for supporting hypotheses about multimodal interaction in the domain of meeting retrieval and for developing NLP modules for this speciﬁc domain. ...
Chapter 13: MPEG-4 video. In this chapter, students will be able to understand: MPEG-4, content-based Interactivity, MPEG-4 example, MPEG-4 sprite example, MPEG-4 video compression, VOP-based vs. frame-based coding,...
The line between depressive and anxiety disorders in perinatal as well as general
populations is often blurred; when the EPDS has been factor-analyzed, although there are
separate factors corresponding to depression and anxiety, several items have moderate
loadings on both factors (Swalm, et al., 2010). Some services refer to antenatal or postnatal
“distress” rather than attempt to differentiate depression from anxiety, and often women
report a mix of anxious and depressed symptoms.
Considering the high probability of the existence of the postshock excitable tunnel even for
above-DFT shocks, defibrillation success may be explained by the fact that initiating PAs,
originating within the wall, cannot find an excitable exit onto the epicardium and die out in
the mid-myocardium. Obtaining such insight into the mechanisms of defibrillation would
have been impossible with the use of experimentation alone.
The main objective of the doctoral research was to improve the performance in
Physics and Mathematics, at Advanced Level Examinations, of two rural girls’
secondary schools in Arua (Muni and Ediofe) through application of e-learning.
Both schools have no functional science laboratories and libraries. They also
have no qualified and committed teachers who can competently teach at that
level of education. The research included participatory action research
methodology and the use of interactive multimedia CD-ROMs for Physics and
Mathematics as the main course delivery platform.
Midsize Business Communications for Dummies is the latest in the highly successful Avaya series and explores the unique challenges faced by midsize businesses and how intelligent communications can improve interactions across employees, suppliers and customers.
Students need a strong digital vocabulary to interact professionally with
colleagues, vendors, potential employers, clients, and industry. Understanding
vocabulary allows the student to read and understand books and articles on the
subject more fully. In addition, this jargon is found in the project process. Using
vocabulary correctly and giving vocabulary exams are the most successful
methods for grasping vocabulary.
Thus can be seen that the effect of seismic activity
direction perpendicular to the axis is lower than for the direction of the bridge
axis when the more powerful seismic forces used for design. In design solutions at 800
gal or more, on the other hand, the collapse does not occur even with a force of 1,000 seismic
gal.Next, icon. 12 represents the total repair cost for each design solution
matrix calculated from the loss in Table 5.
Many studies of seismic risk management and loss assessment (seismic risk) caused by
damage or collapse of a structure, have also been conducted in recent years. In these papers, seismic risk is calculated using a dangerous curve represents the probability
the generation of earthquake motion and damage curve represents a probability of
damage to structures.
Summary and Introduction
Broadband wireless communications have gained an increased interest during the last few years. This has been fuelled by a large demand on high frequency utilisation as well as a large number of users requiring simultaneous high data rate access for the applications of wireless mobile Internet and e-commerce.
In addition, since the collapse will not occur
even with a seismic force of 1,000 gal in the case of a design solution for a seismic forces
800 gal or more, the total repair cost is about half that for other design solutions
with the collapse, except at 750 gal.
Sung. 13 to 15 show the relationship between total costs and seismic forces in the case
repair costs for each design solution, calculated using the dangerous curve in the figure.
