    • Smart augmentation learning an optimal data augmentation strategy 

      Lemley, Joseph; Bazrafkan, Shabab; Corcoran, Peter (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-04-24)
      A recurring problem faced when training neural networks is that there is typically not enough data to maximize the generalization capability of deep neural networks. There are many techniques to address this, including ...
    • Smart cameras: 2D affine models for determining subject facial expressions 

      Bacivarov, Ioana; Corcoran, Peter M.; Ionita, Mircea (IEEE, 2010-07-15)
      In this paper we consider how next generation of smart cameras will move beyond face detection and tracking to develop more useful analysis tools for determining the expressions and emotions of the subjects in images. An ...
    • SMART MOVE - a smartphone-based intervention to promote physical activity in primary care: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial 

      Glynn, Liam G.; Hayes, Patrick S.; Casey, Monica; Glynn, Fergus; Alvarez-Iglesias, Alberto; Newell, John; Ó Laighin, Gearóid; Heaney, David; Murphy, Andrew W. (BioMed Central, 2013-05-29)
      Background: Sedentary lifestyles are now becoming a major concern for governments of developed and developing countries with physical inactivity related to increased all-cause mortality, lower quality of life, and increased ...
    • Smartphones, biometrics, and a brave new world 

      Corcoran, Peter; Costache, Claudia (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 ...
    • Stable tissue-mimicking materials and an anatomically realistic, adjustable head phantom for electrical impedance tomography 

      McDermott, Barry; McGinley, Brian; Krukiewicz, Katarzyna; Divilly, Brendan; Jones, Marggie; Biggs, Manus; O'Halloran, Martin; Porter, Emily (IOP Publishing, 2017-11-27)
      Objective. To develop dielectrically accurate, easy to mould solid tissue-mimicking materials (TMMs) for use with electrical impedance tomography (EIT) and combine them into a head phantom with realistic anatomy and ...
    • A statistical modeling based system for blink detection in digital cameras 

      Corcoran, Peter; Bacivarov, Ioana; Jonita, Mircea C (IEEE, 2008)
      In this paper we describe a system which uses statistical eye modeling to track the eyes and detect eyes blinking. The main challenge was to design an eye model robust to small variations of head pose and to extract the ...
