MKLab participation to the TRECVID 2016 AVS task

MKLab successfully participated to the Ad-hoc Video Search (AVS) of TRECVID 2016. The AVS task attempts to model the end-user video search use-case, where the user is looking for segments of video containing persons, objects, activities, locations, etc. and combinations of the former. To express this information need, the user provides to the retrieval system a short query in natural language, e.g., “Find shots of a person playing guitar outdoors”.

Our FastAR Prototype short-listed for the Innovation Radar Prize 2016

FartAR prototype developed by our lab in the context of the Live+Gov EU-funded proejct has been short-listed for the Innovation Radar Prize 2016. Our innovation is one of 10 innovations that have been selected to compete for the prize in the "ICT for Society" category. After publishing the information of all innovations on the Innovation Radar webpage, a poll will be open for one month by end of July, for public vote.

Should we expect drones to change the way we experience culture?

In mklab we are definitely trying to answer Yes! By collaborating with drone experts, 3D specialists and archeological sites we have set the goal of creating New 3D Cultural Worlds.

Pottery gestures style comparison by exploiting Myo sensor and forearm anatomy

Mklab performs research for comparing the style of pottery gestures by exploiting the Myo sensor and forearm anatomy. In particular, a set of Electromyogram (EMG) based features such as muscles total pressure, flexors pressure, tensors pressure, and gesture stiffness, have been used for the purpose of identifying differences in performing the same gesture across three pottery constructions namely bowl, cylindrical vase, and spherical vase.

Efficient dimensionality reduction and classification software released

We just released software (executables and sources) for our accelerated Kernel Subclass Discriminant Analysis (AKSDA) method and its combination with SVM classifiers. This is an efficient dimensionality reduction and classification method, for very high-dimensional data.
