    This paper presents the design and usability validation of a telematic test aimed at the early detection of Mild Cognitive Impairments in persons ageing between 50 and 80. The test represents a 3D domestic environment in ...
  • Data-aware picking for medical models 

    Monclús Lahoya, Eva; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau; Navazo Álvaro, Isabel (Springer, 2014)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Medical doctors are often faced with the problem of selecting anchoring points in 3D space. These points are commonly used for measurement tasks, such as lengths of bones, or dimensions of pathological structures (e. g. ...

    The first programming course (Programming-1, CS1) in the Informatics Engineering Degree of the Facultat d'Informàtica de Barcelona was completely redesigned in 2006 in order to reinforce the learn-by- doing methodology. ...
  • Non-crossing dependencies: Least effort, not grammar 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (Springer, 2016-01-01)
    Part of book or chapter of book

    The use of null hypotheses (in a statistical sense) is common in hard sciences but not in theoretical linguistics. Here the null hypothesis that the low frequency of syntactic dependency crossings is expected by an arbitrary ...
  • Geometric constraint graphs decomposition based on computing graph circuits 

    Joan Arinyo, Robert; Tarres Puertas, Marta Isabel; Vila Marta, Sebastià (Copicentro, 2010-01-01)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Geometric constraint solving is a growing field which plays a paramount role in industrial applications and that is deeply rooted in automated deduction in geometry. In this work we report on an algorithm to solve ...
  • Using the Fuzzy Inductive Reasoning methodology to improve coherence in algorithmic musical beat patterns 

    Paz Ortiz, Iván; Nebot Castells, M. Àngela; Múgica Álvarez, Francisco; Romero Merino, Enrique (IOS Press, 2014-10-23)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In the present work, the Fuzzy Inductive Reasoning methodology (FIR) is used to improve coherence among beat patterns, structured in a musical A-B form. Patterns were generated based on a probability matrix, encoding a ...
