    Biocuration in the omics sciences has become paramount, as research in these fields rapidly evolves towards increasingly data-dependent models. As a result, the management of web-accessible publicly-available databases ...
  • Graph SLAM sparsification with populated topologies using factor descent optimization 

    Vallvé Navarro, Joan; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Current solutions to the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem approach it as the optimization of a graph of geometric constraints. Scalability is achieved by reducing the size of the graph, usually in two ...
