MixedFusion: Real-Time Reconstruction of an Indoor Scene with Dynamic Objects.

Real-time indoor scene reconstruction aims to recover the 3D geometry of an indoor scene in real time with a sensor scanning the scene. Previous works of this topic consider pure static scenes, but in this paper, we focus on more challenging cases that the scene contains dynamic objects, for example, moving people and floating curtains. We develop an end-to-end system using a depth sensor to scan a scene on the fly. By proposing a Sigmoid-based Iterative Closest Point(S-ICP) method, we decouple the camera m...


Scene layout priming relies primarily on low-level features rather than scene layout.

The ability to perceive and remember the spatial layout of a scene is critical to understanding the visual world, both for navigation and for other complex tasks that depend upon the structure of the current environment. However, surprisingly little work has investigated how and when scene layout information is maintained in memory. One prominent line of work investigating this issue is a scene-priming paradigm (e.g., Sanocki & Epstein, 1997), in which different types of previews are presented to participan...

Investment preference promotes cooperation in spatial public goods game.

It is usually assumed that each cooperator contributes equally to different public pools in spatial public goods game. However, it is more reasonable to invest differently according to individual investment preference. In this paper, an extended public goods game, in which cooperators contribute to the groups according to the investment preference, is developed. The investment preference of a cooperator is characterized by the fraction of the cooperator from his/her own memory about a group and the intensit...


Swimming activity in zebrafish larvae exposed to veterinary antiparasitic pharmaceuticals.

Veterinary antiparasitic pharmaceuticals have been detected in surface waters and several of these pharmaceuticals act on the nervous system on the target organisms implying that neurological effects also might be of concern in non-target animals such as fish. We tested if exposure to antiparasitic pharmaceuticals affect swimming activity in 6 days old zebrafish larvae. The results revealed that most pharmaceuticals did not cause any effects in swimming activity. However, larvae exposed to 0.58 mg/L doram...

Eccentricity scale independence for scene perception in the first tens of milliseconds.

Visual processing of scenes in the first tens of milliseconds relies on global image summary statistics rather than localized processing. Although natural scenes typically involve our entire visual field, scenes are usually presented experimentally at limited eccentricity. Receptive-field size increases with foveal eccentricity while increasingly pooling activity from local receptive fields. Here, we asked to what extent an observer's performance on a scene-gist perception task depends on the contents of th...

Multiobjective Support Vector Machines: Handling Class Imbalance With Pareto Optimality.

Support vector machines (SVMs) seek to optimize three distinct objectives: maximization of margin, minimization of regularization from the positive class, and minimization of regularization from the negative class. The right choice of weightage for each of these objectives is critical to the quality of the classifier learned, especially in case of the class imbalanced data sets. Therefore, costly parameter tuning has to be undertaken to find a set of suitable relative weights. In this brief, we propose to t...

Learning Effective RGB-D Representations for Scene Recognition.

Deep convolutional networks (CNN) can achieve impressive results on RGB scene recognition thanks to large datasets such as Places. In contrast, RGB-D scene recognition is still underdeveloped in comparison, due to two limitations of RGB-D data we address in this paper. The first limitation is the lack of depth data for training deep learning models. Rather than fine tuning or transferring RGB-specific features, we address this limitation by proposing an architecture and a twostep training approach that dire...

Uncertainty analysis of remediation cost and damaged land value for brownfield investment.

Flexible land management that allows risk-based remediation approaches can increase local financial assistance in brownfield development investments. The evaluation of brownfields investment has always been mired in uncertainty because of the complexity of contamination and land policy. To clarify the uncertainty in investment costs resulting from a flexible risk-based land management, this research analyzes the uncertainty of remediation costs (I) and damaged land value (I). Sizable statistical data for 30...

Term sets: A transparent and reproducible representation of clinical code sets.

Clinical code sets are vital to research using routinely-collected electronic healthcare data. Existing code set engineering methods pose significant limitations when considering reproducible research. To improve the transparency and reusability of research, these code sets must abide by FAIR principles; this is not currently happening. We propose 'term sets', an equivalent alternative to code sets that are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

Insight into the distribution of pharmaceuticals in soil-water-plant systems.

Pharmaceuticals in agricultural soils originating from irrigation with treated wastewater and land-applied biosolids can enter field crops. However, little is known about the role of pore water in plant uptake of pharmaceuticals from soils. In this study, the fate, uptake and distribution of fifteen commonly used pharmaceuticals in soil-water-radish systems were investigated to examine the relationship between the accumulation and their physicochemical processes in soils. The results indicate that the distr...

Examining the hierarchical nature of scene representations in memory.

How are scene representations stored in memory? Researchers have often posited that scene representations have a hierarchical structure with background elements providing a scaffold for more detailed foreground elements. To further investigate scene representation and the role of background and foreground information, we introduced a new stimulus set: chimera scenes, which have the central block of objects belonging to one scene category (foreground), and the surrounding structure belonging to another (back...

Paternal investment and low birth weight - The mediating role of parity.

According to life-history theory, paternal investment affects the well-being of offspring. We hypothesized that environmental stress caused by a lack of paternal investment may diminish maternal resource allocation during pregnancy, especially for women who already have dependent children. Our study was conducted on a representative group of more than 80,500 singleton, live-born, full-term infants born in Krakow, Poland in the period 1995-2009. Birth data were obtained from the birth registry. We found that...

Return on Investment: Building the Case for a Nurse Manager Certificate Program.

Nursing professional development practitioners are frequently asked about program return on investment. A pre-postprogram self-assessment was developed for a Nurse Manager Certificate Program using the American Nurses Credentialing Center Nurse Executive Certification blueprint. The results identified knowledge and skill gaps, defined program outcomes, and helped determine return on investment. The results revealed improvement of knowledge, skill, and evidence for return on investment. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2...

Chiral pharmaceuticals: Environment sources, potential human health impacts, remediation technologies and future perspective.

Chiral pharmaceuticals (CPs), including non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), β-blockers and some herbicide and pesticides, are widely used in aquaculture, clinical treatment and many other fields. However, people are increasingly concerned about such ubiquitous pollutants, which can frequently be detected in contaminated soil and water. In large part, the significant sources of chiral pharmaceuticals stem from industrial processes, such as the direct discharge of untreated or incompletely treated ...

Assessment of 83 pharmaceuticals in WWTP influent and effluent samples by UHPLC-MS/MS: Hourly variation.

The removal efficiency of pharmaceuticals in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is variable and some of these compounds pass these plants almost intact and others presenting a removal efficiency close to 100%. Their incomplete removal results in a continuous discharge of pharmaceuticals into the environment. To assess the profile of contamination of influents and effluents over a day, a set of 83 pharmaceuticals were evaluated hourly in a WWTP in Leiria, Portugal. The composite samples of the influent and ...

Maternal condition and maternal investment during lactation in mantled howler monkeys.

Lactation is a costly reproductive state for females, as it may entail decreased body condition, increased morbidity, and increased mortality risk. To offset these costs, mothers should allocate investment in infant care as a function of their physical condition. Here, we assessed the relationship between maternal condition and maternal investment in wild mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata) to determine: (1) whether maternal physical condition varied as a function of food availability, activity level...

Exposure and ecotoxicological risk assessment of mixtures of top prescribed pharmaceuticals in Swedish freshwaters.

Surface water concentrations of 54 pharmaceuticals were predicted for seven major Swedish rivers and the Stockholm City area basins using the STREAM-EU model. These surface water concentrations were used to predict the ecotoxicological impact resulting from the exposure of aquatic organisms to this mixture of 54 pharmaceuticals. STREAM-EU model results indicated that

Decoding natural scenes based on sounds of objects within scenes using multivariate pattern analysis.

Scene recognition plays an important role in spatial navigation and scene classification. It remains unknown whether the occipitotemporal cortex could represent the semantic association between the scenes and sounds of objects within the scenes. In this study, we used the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technique and multivariate pattern analysis to assess whether different scenes could be discriminated based on the patterns evoked by sounds of objects within the scenes. We found that patterns...

Influencing factors on the removal of pharmaceuticals from water with micro-grain activated carbon.

The removal efficiency of 6 micro-grain AC (μGAC) was examined for 23 selected pharmaceutical compounds, usually found at trace level in municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents. Two different sets of experiments were carried out using distilled water and a real WWTP secondary effluent in order to understand the adsorption mechanisms of pharmaceuticals, including the role of the presence of background organic matter. Physical and chemical properties of μGACs and target pollutants were checked...

Outdoor Shadow Estimating Using Multiclass Geometric Decomposition Based on BLS.

Illumination is a significant component of an image, and illumination estimation of an outdoor scene from given images is still challenging yet it has wide applications. Most of the traditional illumination estimating methods require prior knowledge or fixed objects within the scene, which makes them often limited by the scene of a given image. We propose an optimization approach that integrates the multiclass cues of the image(s) [a main input image and optional auxiliary input image(s)]. First, Sun visibi...

A Robust 3D-2D Interactive Tool for Scene Segmentation and Annotation.

Recent advances of 3D acquisition devices have enabled large-scale acquisition of 3D scene data. Such data, if completely and well annotated, can serve as useful ingredients for a wide spectrum of computer vision and graphics works such as data-driven modeling and scene understanding, object detection and recognition. However, annotating a vast amount of 3D scene data remains challenging due to the lack of an effective tool and/or the complexity of 3D scenes (e.g. clutter, varying illumination conditions). ...

Investment in drinking identity is associated with alcohol consumption and risk of alcohol use disorder.

Problematic alcohol consumption is elevated among those who identify (i.e., associate themselves) with drinking. We extended prior research on drinking identity by considering two dimensions of investment in identity - i.e., mental resources allocated to that identity that may motivate the pursuit of identity-related goals. We considered drinking identity importance (i.e., how important one considers it to be) and drinking identity thought frequency (i.e., how frequently one thinks about it). We investigate...

Effects of pharmaceuticals on microbial communities and activity of soil enzymes in mesocosm-scale constructed wetlands.

Cyperus alternifolius based mesocosm-scale constructed wetland was employed to remove pharmaceuticals. We investigated the microbial community composition using phosphor lipid fatty acids (PFLAs) analysis and substrate enzyme activity during long-term exposure to pharmaceuticals in mesocosm-scale constructed wetlands. The results showed that there was no visible inhibition effect of pharmaceuticals on CW substrate enzymes activities in the experimental range (0-500 μg/L). Microbial communities, as reveal...

Localization and Completion for 3D Object Interactions.

Finding where and what objects to put into an existing scene is a common task for scene synthesis and robot/character motion planning. Existing frameworks require development of hand-crafted features suitable for the task, or full volumetric analysis that could be memory intensive and imprecise. In this paper, we propose a data-driven framework to discover a suitable location and then place the appropriate objects in a scene. Our approach is inspired by computer vision techniques for localizing objects in i...

Life history trade-offs and the partitioning of maternal investment: Implications for health of mothers and offspring.

Lay Summary: This review sets out the hypothesis that life history trade-offs in the maternal generation favour the emergence of similar trade-offs in the offspring generation, mediated by the partitioning of maternal investment between pregnancy and lactation, and that these trade-offs help explain widely reported associations between growth trajectories and NCD risk. Growth patterns in early life predict the risk of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), but adaptive explanations remain controversial. It is wi...
