  • Wang, Jingbin; Athitsos, Vassilis; Sclaroff, Stan; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-10-02)
    Hidden State Shape Models (HSSMs) [2], a variant of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) [9], were proposed to detect shape classes of variable structure in cluttered images. In this paper, we formulate a probabilistic framework ...
  • Presti, Liliana Lo; Sclaroff, Stan; La Casica, Marco (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-05-18)
    Establishing correspondences among object instances is still challenging in multi-camera surveillance systems, especially when the cameras’ fields of view are non-overlapping. Spatiotemporal constraints can help in solving ...
  • Cai, Patrick P.; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1995-07-18)
    This report describes our attempt to add animation as another data type to be used on the World Wide Web. Our current network infrastructure, the Internet, is incapable of carrying video and audio streams for them to be ...
  • Ikizler-Cinbis, Nazli; Sclaroff, Stan (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-07-06)
    We propose an approach for improving object recognition and localization using spatial kernels together with instance embedding. Our approach treats each image as a bag of instances (image features) within a multiple ...
  • Ikizler-Cinbis, Nazli; Sclaroff, Stan (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-07-06)
    In many cases, human actions can be identified not only by the singular observation of the human body in motion, but also properties of the surrounding scene and the related objects. In this paper, we look into this problem ...
  • Martin, Michael (University of Chicago Press, 1973)
  • Zalama, Eduardo; Gaudino, Paolo; Coronado, Juan López (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-02)
    This paper describes the application of a model of operant conditioning to the problem of obstacle avoidance with a wheeled mobile robot. The main characteristic of the applied model is that the robot learns to avoid ...
  • Clark, Chalmers C. (The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, 2005)
  • Atlas, Alia; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-09-02)
    Most real-time scheduling problems are known to be NP-complete. To enable accurate comparison between the schedules of heuristic algorithms and the optimal schedule, we introduce an omniscient oracle. This oracle provides ...
  • Yilmaz, Selma; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2001)
    The congestion control mechanisms of TCP make it vulnerable in an environment where flows with different congestion-sensitivity compete for scarce resources. With the increasing amount of unresponsive UDP traffic in today's ...
  • Hescott, Benjamin; Koulomzin, Daniel (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-02-22)
    The need for the ability to cluster unknown data to better understand its relationship to know data is prevalent throughout science. Besides a better understanding of the data itself or learning about a new unknown object, ...
  • Bera, Debajyoti; Homer, Steve (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-06-05)
    We consider a fault model of Boolean gates, both classical and quantum, where some of the inputs may not be connected to the actual gate hardware. This model is somewhat similar to the stuck-at model which is a very popular ...
  • Homer, Steven; Chen, Zhixiang (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1993-12)
    We investigate the problem of learning disjunctions of counting functions, which are general cases of parity and modulo functions, with equivalence and membership queries. We prove that, for any prime number p, the class ...
  • Esposito, Flavio; Vegni, Anna Maria; Matta, Ibrahim; Neri, Alessandro (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-09-07)
    Although vehicular ad hoc networks are emerging as a novel paradigm for safety services, supporting real-time applications (e.g., video-streaming, Internet browsing, online gaming, etc.) while maintaining ubiquitous ...
  • Hescott, Ben; Finkelstein, Jeffrey (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2011-12-20)
    In this paper, we examine a recently introduced type of effective reduction which applies solely to problems of equivalence or isomorphism: the "kernel reduction". Specifically, we examine reductions among languages in the ...
  • Ishakian, Vatche; Akinwumi, Joseph; Esposito, Flavio; Matta, Ibrahim (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-10-15)
    As the Internet has evolved and grown, an increasing number of nodes (hosts or autonomous systems) have become multihomed, i.e., a node is connected to more than one network. Mobility can be viewed as a special case of ...
  • Cosgrove, Elissa J; Gardner, Timothy S; Kolaczyk, Eric D (BioMed Central, 2010-9-9)
    BACKGROUND. Transcriptional regulatory network inference (TRNI) from large compendia of DNA microarrays has become a fundamental approach for discovering transcription factor (TF)-gene interactions at the genome-wide level. ...
  • Przybyszewski, A. W.; Lankheet, M. J. M.; van de Grind, W.A. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-10)
    We recorded intracellular responses from cat retinal ganglion cells to sinusoidal flickering lights and compared the response dynamics to a theoretical model based on coupled nonlinear oscillators. Flicker responses for ...
  • Green, Frederic; Homer, Steven; Pollett, Christopher (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-01-20)
    For any q > 1, let MOD_q be a quantum gate that determines if the number of 1's in the input is divisible by q. We show that for any q,t > 1, MOD_q is equivalent to MOD_t (up to constant depth). Based on the case q=2, ...
