    • Analysis of poles and zeros for tapered link designs 

      Girvin, Douglas L.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyWorld Scientific Press, 2003)
      This chapter analyzes the pole and zero locations of a linearly-tapered Euler-Bernoulli beam pinned at one end and free at the other end. Of particular interest is the location of zeros of the transfer function from torque ...
    • Automated Assessment of Surgical Skills Using Frequency Analysis 

      Zia, Aneeq; Sharma, Yachna; Bettadapura, Vinay; Sarin, Eric L.; Clements, Mark A.; Essa, Irfan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
      We present an automated framework for visual assessment of the expertise level of surgeons using the OSATS (Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills) criteria. Video analysis techniques for extracting motion ...
    • The Bayes Tree: An Algorithmic Foundation for Probabilistic Robot Mapping 

      Kaess, Michael; Ila, Viorela; Roberts, Richard; Dellaert, Frank (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2010-12)
      We present a novel data structure, the Bayes tree, that provides an algorithmic foundation enabling a better understanding of existing graphical model inference algorithms and their connection to sparse matrix factorization ...
    • Behavior Based Robotics Using Hybrid Automata 

      Egerstedt, Magnus (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer Verlag, 2000-03)
      In this article, we show how a behavior based control system for autonomous robots can be modeled as a hybrid automaton, where each node corresponds to a distinct robot behavior. This type of construction gives rise to ...
    • Categorizing Turn-Taking Interactions 

      Prabhakar, Karthir; Rehg, James M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-Verlag Berlin / Heidelberg, 2012-10)
      We address the problem of categorizing turn-taking interactions between individuals. Social interactions are characterized by turn-taking and arise frequently in real-world videos. Our approach is based on the use of ...
    • Construct Validity and Cognitive Diagnostic Assessment 

      Embretson, Susan E.; Yang, Xiangdong (Georgia Institute of TechnologyCambridge University Press, 2007)
      Cognitive diagnostic assessment (CDA) is increasingly a major focus in psychological and educational measurement. Instead of inferring a general response tendency or behavior consistency of an examinee over a target domain ...
    • Control of Autonomous Mobile Robots 

      Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-VerlagBirkhäuser, 2005)
    • Economic Sustainability in the Post-Industrial Landscape 

      Dunham-Jones, Ellen (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
    • The Economics of Knowledge and Learning 

      Lundvall, Bengt-Åke (Georgia Institute of TechnologyEmerald Group Publishing, 2004)
      The focus in this book is on product innovation, learning and economic performance. A central theme is the understanding of learning and knowledge in connection with processes of technical and organisational change. In ...
    • Engaging Children in Play Therapy: The Coupling of Virtual Reality (VR) Games With Social Robotics 

      García-Vergara, Sergio; Brown, LaVonda; Park, Hae Won; Howard, Ayanna M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-01)
      Individuals who have impairments in their motor skills typically engage in rehabilitation protocols to improve the recovery of their motor functions. In general, engaging in physical therapy can be tedious and difficult, ...
    • From Empirical Data to Multi-Modal Control Procedures 

      Delmotte, Florent; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer-Verlag, 2005)
      In this paper we study the problem of generating control programs, i.e. strings of symbolic descriptions of control-interrupt pairs (or modes) from input-output data. In particular, we take the point of view that such ...
    • Games 

      Briggle, Adam; Holbrook, J. Britt (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
      The long history of humans playing games to amuse or challenge themselves has been fundamentally transformed by science and technology. Science has studied in detail how games work, and technology has created whole ...
    • Global Research Council 

      Holbrook, J. Britt (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015)
      At least since the formation of the Royal Society in 1660, science has envisioned itself as a global enterprise. Science is often touted as neutral territory concerned with the pursuit of truth independent of political ...
    • Humanoid HRP2-DHRC for Autonomous and Interactive Behavior 

      Kagami, Satoshi; Nishiwaki, K.; Kuffner, James; Thompson, S.; Chestnutt, J.; Stilman, Mike; Michel, P. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2007)
      Recently, research on humanoid-type robots has become increasingly active, and a broad array of fundamental issues are under investigation. However, in order to achieve a humanoid robot which can operate in human environments, ...
    • Identifying regional dialects in online social media 

      Eisenstein, Jacob (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-08-06)
      Electronic social media offers new opportunities for informal communication in written language, while at the same time, providing new datasets that allow researchers to document dialect variation from records of natural ...
    • Increasing Super Pop VR™ Users' Intrinsic Motivation by Improving the Game's Aesthetics 

      García-Vergara, Sergio; Li, Hongfei; Howard, Ayanna M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologySpringer International, 2015-08)
      During physical therapy intervention protocols, it's important to consider the individual's intrinsic motivation to perform in-home recommended exercises. Physical therapy exercises can become tedious thus limiting the ...
    • Information Sources and Collection Planning for Engineering 

      Baer, William; Renfro, Crystal (Georgia Institute of TechnologyIGI Global, 2013)
