      Nelson, Mark J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-05-14)
      Videogame designers hope to sculpt gameplay, but actually work in the concrete medium of computation. What they create is code, artwork, dialogue---everything that goes inside a videogame cartridge. In other materially ...
    • A Robotic System for Autonomous Medication and Water Delivery 

      Emeli, Victor; Wagner, Alan R.; Kemp, Charles C. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      Poor medication adherence and dehydration are well-documented challenges for older adults living independently that lead to reduced quality of life. Robotic delivery of pills and water in the home could potentially ...
    • Robots learning actions and goals from everyday people 

      Akgun, Baris (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-11-16)
      Robots are destined to move beyond the caged factory floors towards domains where they will be interacting closely with humans. They will encounter highly varied environments, scenarios and user demands. As a result, ...
    • SAM: Steady Affine Motions 

      Rossignac, Jaroslaw R.; Vinacua, Àlvar (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-23)
      An affine motion is a continuous map from time value t to an affinity A subscript t. It is a SAM (Steady Affine Motion), when A subscript t = A superscript t. Although the beauty of a motion is subjective, the above equation ...
    • Semantic mapping for service robots: building and using maps for mobile manipulators in semi-structured environments 

      Trevor, Alexander J. B. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-08)
      Although much progress has been made in the field of robotic mapping, many challenges remain including: efficient semantic segmentation using RGB-D sensors, map representations that include complex features (structures and ...
    • Social media, elections, and democracy in West Africa 

      Smyth, Thomas Nathan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-17)
      Today is an exciting time to be a political activist in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly for the technically inclined. New media technologies including the mobile phone, the Internet, and social media are proliferating ...
    • Social tools for everyday adolescent health 

      Miller, Andrew D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-05-15)
      In order to support people's everyday health and wellness goals, health practitioners and organizations are embracing a more holistic approach to medicine---supporting patients both as individuals and members of their ...
    • SOT: Compact Representation for Triangle and Tetrahedral Meshes 

      Rossignac, Jarek; Gurung, Topraj (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010)
      The Corner Table (CT) represents a triangle mesh by storing 6 integer references per triangle (3 vertex references in the Vertex table and 3 references to opposite corners in the Opposite table, which accelerate access to ...
