  • Effects of human-machine integration on the construction of identity 

    Ballesté, Francesc; Torras, Carme (2013)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recent developments in social robotics, intelligent prosthetics, brain-computer interfaces, and implants pose new questions as to the effects of technology on identity, society, and the future of humankind. The authors’ ...

  • Aforismo 74: no te pongas intratable con quienes fuiste agradable 

    Torras, Carme (Escuela de Organización Industrial, 2011)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Las necedades siempre sorprenden a todos, pues el necio es audaz en atrevimiento. Su torpeza le impide advertir que desentonará con su conducta, y eso mismo le quita la vergüenza de hacer el ridículo. En cambio, el hombre ...
  • Local boosted features for pedestrian detection 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The present paper addresses pedestrian detection using local boosted features that are learned from a small set of training images. Our contribution is to use two boosting steps. The first one learns discriminant local ...
  • A recursive embedding approach to median graph computation 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Bunke, Horst (Springer Verlag, 2009-06-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The median graph has been shown to be a good choice to infer a representative of a set of graphs. It has been successfully applied to graph-based classification and clustering. Nevertheless, its computation is extremely ...
  • Graph-based k-means clustering: A comparison of the set versus the generalized median graph 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Serratosa Casanelles, Francesc; Bardaji Goikoetxea, Itziar; Bunke, Horst (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper we propose the application of the generalized median graph in a graph-based k-means clustering algorithm. In the graph-based k-means algorithm, the centers of the clusters have been traditionally represented ...
  • 3D object reconstruction from Swissranger sensor data using a spring-mass model 

    Dellen, Babette; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Foix Salmerón, Sergi; Torras, Carme (INSTICC Press. Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We register close-range depth images of objects using a Swissranger sensor and apply a spring-mass model for 3D object reconstruction. The Swissranger sensor delivers depth images in real time which have, compared with ...
  • Simulating dynamical systems for early vision 

    Dellen, Babette; Wörgötter, Florentin (INSTICC Press. Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    We propose a novel algorithm for stereo matching using a dynamical systems approach. The stereo correspondence problem is first formulated as an energy minimization problem. From the energy function, we derive a system of ...
  • Median graph computation by means of a genetic approach based on minimum common supergraph and maximum common subraph 

    Ferrer Sumsi, Miquel; Valveny, Ernest; Serratosa Casanelles, Francesc (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2009)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Given a set of graphs, the median graph has been theoretically presented as a useful concept to infer a representative of the set. However, the computation of the median graph is a highly complex task and its practical ...
  • Improving background subtraction based on a casuistry of colour-motion segmentation problems 

    Huerta Casado, Iván; Rowe, Daniel; Mozerov, Mikhail; Gonzàlez, Jordi (Springer Verlag, 2007)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The basis for the high-level interpretation of observed patterns of human motion still relies on motion segmentation. Popular approaches based on background subtraction use colour information to model each pixel during a ...
