Semiparallel deep neural network hybrid architecture: first application on depth from monocular camera
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018-08-07)
Deep neural networks have been applied to a wide range of problems in recent years. Convolutional neural network is applied to the problem of determining the depth from a single camera image (monocular depth). Eight different ...
Smartphones, biometrics, and a brave new world
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-09-09)
In this article, we take a somewhat contrarian viewpoint - that biometrics may, in fact, offer solutions to many of today's cyber-security problems that appear with increasing frequency in prime-time news. This outcome ...
Unconstrained palmprint as a smartphone biometric
In this work the use of palmprints as an alternative biometric for smartphones is investigated and its feasibility is evaluated across multiple devices using unconstrained acquisition. A novel multi-device database that ...
Pushing the AI envelope: merging deep networks to accelerate edge artificial intelligence in consumer electronics devices and systems
Deep neural networks (DNNs) are widely used by both academic and industry researchers to solve many long-standing problems in machine learning. There has been such a growth of research in this field, and it has been applied ...
Application of preconditioned alternating direction method of multipliers in depth from focal stack
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018-04-06)
Postcapture refocusing effect in smartphone cameras is achievable using focal stacks. However, the accuracy of this effect is totally dependent on the combination of the depth layers in the stack. The accuracy of the ...
Half-face detector for enhanced performance of flash-eye filter
Red-eye and flash-eye defects in still photography continue to cause problems for digital imaging devices. New variants of flash-eye defects have appeared as cameras and cameras sub-systems get smaller in size. This paper ...
Effect of modeling approach on climate change focused life cycle assessments for a contemporary smartphone device
Life cycle assessments (LCA) of consumer electronics and beyond are usually performed and reported very differently. As a result it is often difficult to assess the robustness, variability and transparency of reported LCA ...

Electricity in a Climate Constrained World [Book Review]
This latest study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) on world electricity consumption, its current status, and the most likely developments we are going to see during the next few years. If you are familiar with ...
The Innovations and Inventions of Steve Jobs [IP Corner]
Much of the world of patents is shrouded in layers of legal mysticism, semantic nuances, and subtle complexities. Those of you who are regular readers of "IP Corner" will know that I often try to explain the principles ...
