    • Determining Unique Fingerprint Features for Biometric Encoding of Data 

      Cucu, Catalin; Cucos, Alex; Corcoran, Peter (2008)
      A novel approach to determining unique fingerprint features with high repeatibility is described. The techniques described are particularly suitable for CE applications and devices employing inexpensive capacitative ...
    • Statistical models of appearance for eye tracking and eye-blink detection and measurement 

      Bacivarov, Ioana; Ionita, Mircea; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2008-08)
      A statistical Active Appearance Model (AAM) is developed to track and detect eye blinking. The model has been designed to be robust to variations of head pose or gaze. In particular we analyze and determine the model ...
    • An abstract framework for modeling argumentation in virtual communities 

      Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried; Breslin, John G.; Decker, Stefan (IGI Global, 2009)
      Classic argumentative discussions can be found in a variety of domains from traditional scientific publishing to today’s modern social software. An interactive argumentative discussion usually consists of an initial ...
    • A URI is worth a thousand tags: From tagging to linked data with MOAT 

      Passant, Alexandre; Laublet, Philippe; Breslin, John G.; Decker, Stefan (IGI Global, 2009)
      Although tagging is a widely accepted practice on the Social Web, it raises various issues like tags ambiguity and heterogeneity, as well as the lack of organization between tags. We believe that Semantic Web technologies ...
