  • Pink Boxes and Chocolate-dipped Broccoli: Bad Game Design Providing Justifications for Reluctant Learners 

    DiSalvo, Betsy (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-02)
    The use of games to make boring activities fun is usually a bad idea. The thoughtless use of points and badges as a method of “gamification” is usually a bad idea. Pandering to stereotypes about women by making games pink ...
  • Implicating Visualization in the Rationalization of Algorithms 

    Polack, Peter (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-28)
    Once operationalized in practice, algorithms are generally understood as removed from human interpretability and control. In this thesis I examine interactive data visualizations and contend that, to the contrary, the ...
  • Creative Sense-Making: A Cognitive Framework for Quantifying Interaction Dynamics in Co-Creation 

    Davis, Nicholas M (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-07)
    Collaboration is a powerful way to inspire and support creativity. The field of computational creativity is beginning to explore how co-creative agents might collaborate with humans during their creative process in co-creative ...
  • Enabling In Situ & Context-Based Motion Gesture Design 

    Parnami, Aman (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-05)

  • Understanding and circumventing censorship on Chinese social media 

    Hiruncharoenvate, Chaya (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-05)
    Chinese Internet users not only face the most technologically advanced filtering system in the world, the Great Firewall of China, but also are under the watchful eyes of the repressive government that controls every layer ...
  • Enhancing manageability of execution and data for GPGPU computing 

    Goswami, Anshuman (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-12-13)
    GPGPUs are useful for many types of compute-intensive workloads from scientific simulations to cloud-focused applications like machine learning and graph analytics. However, unlike CPUs they do not allow for software-controlled ...
  • Relaxing Coherence for Modern Learning Applications 

    Lee, Joo Hwan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-01-05)
    The main objective of this research is to efficiently execute learning (model training) of modern machine learning (ML) applications. The recent explosion in data has led to the emergence of data-intensive ML applications ...
  • Robust Adaptation of Natural Language Processing for Language Variation 

    Yang, Yi (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-01-09)
    Natural language processing (NLP) technology has been applied in various domains, ranging from social media and digital humanities to public health. Unfortunately, the adoption of existing NLP techniques in these areas ...
  • Towards a Secure and Resilient Industrial Control System Using Software-Defined Networking 

    Jin, Dong (Kevin) (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-21)
    Modern industrial control systems (ICSes) are increasingly adopting Internet technology to boost control efficiency, which unfortunately opens up a new front for a potential “cyber Pearl Harbor.” People typically applied ...
  • Performance Verification for Behavior-Based Robot Missions 

    Lyons, Damian M.; Arkin, Ronald C.; Jiang, Shu; Liu, Tsung-Ming; Nirmal, Paramesh (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-06)
    Certain robot missions need to perform predictably in a physical environment that may have significant uncertainty. One approach is to leverage automatic software verification techniques to establish a performance guarantee. ...
  • Using Visual Information for Spatial Advice-Giving in a Primate-Inspired Autonomous Robot 

    Arkin, Ronald C.; Velayudhan, Lakshmi; Pettinati, Michael J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer, 2015)
    This paper presents an approach to apply mental rotations in the context of robot navigation in support of spatial advice-­giving. It describes the motivation in terms of cognitive processing, the underlying architecture, ...
  • Primate-inspired Autonomous Navigation Using Mental Rotation and Advice-Giving 

    Velayudhan, Lakshmi; Arkin, Ronald C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-09)
    The cognitive process that enables many primate species to efficiently traverse their environment has been a subject of numerous studies. Mental rotation is hypothesized to be one such process. The evolutionary causes ...
  • An Intervening Ethical Governor for a Robot Mediator in Patient-Caregiver Relationships 

    Shim, Jaeeun; Arkin, Ronald C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer International Publishing, 2015)
    Patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) experience challenges when interacting with caregivers due to their declining control over their musculature. To remedy those challenges, a robot mediator can be used to assist in ...
