      Wu, Jianxin; Rehg, James M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07-23)
      CENTRIST (CENsus TRansform hISTogram), a new visual descriptor for recognizing topological places or scene categories, is introduced in this paper. We show that place and scene recognition, especially for indoor environments, ...
    • Characteristics of Time-Distance Gait Parameters Across Speeds 

      Tanawongsuwan, Rawesak; Bobick, Aaron F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003)
      This paper explores time-distance gait parameters across walking speeds. Our approach consists of designing an experiment to gather walking data at various speeds, analyzing time-distance features with respect to speeds. ...
    • Characterizing Browsing Behaviors on the World-Wide Web 

      Catledge, Lara D.; Pitkow, James Edward (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995)
      This paper presents the results of a study conducted at Georgia Institute of Technology that captured client-side user events of NCSA's X Mosaic. Actual user behavior, as determined from client-side log file analysis, ...
    • Characterizing Process Change Using Log File Data 

      Guzdial, Mark; Walton, Chris; Konemann, Michael; Soloway, Elliot (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993)
      Students learning a new task with an unfamiliar interface must learn the task, the interface, and a task-to-device mapping which enables them to develop an efficient process for achieving goals with that software. To ...
    • Characterizing World Wide Web Ecologies 

      Pitkow, James Edward (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      One of the fastest growing sources of information today is the World Wide Web (WWW), having grown from only fifty sources of information in January of 1993 to over a half million four years later. The exponential growth ...
    • CHIME: A Knowledge-based Computer-Human Interaction Monitoring Engine 

      Badre, Albert; Santos, Paulo J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1991)
      One of the prerequisites to improving the quality of a user interface is the ability to capture and analyze human-computer interaction data. We claim that in order to perform an accurate and extensive analysis of human-computer ...
    • Choreography Driven Characters 

      Sternberg, Daniel; Essa, Irfan A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002)
      High-level control of an articulated humanoid character for animation is much desired by animators. Current options of key-framing, motion capture and simulation either give too much or too little control to the animator ...
