Eliminating the Need for a 4th NYC Area Airport with Collaborative Communications Technology

Eliminating the Need for a 4th NYC Area Airport with Collaborative Communications Technology Speaker: Ted Willke Abstract – Presently, aircraft separation and runway usage are controlled manually, primarily through voice communications between Air Traffic Control and pilots. With existing procedures, the air system is suffering from limited runway capacity and airports, such as John F. […]

fast top-k similarity computation in matlab

When pre-computing a similarity matrix, there there is a large cost in both time and memory for computing pairwise similarity between every sample, O(N^2).  There are two main ways to slightly reduce the cost of either one of these demands... Approximate Hashing: Hashing projects a set of features into a lower dimensional representation while simultaneously […]

interests professional directions - I want to improve the way people search for video content.  Right now, there’s a gap between just looking for pictures with captions or tags and really searching video for its contents and getting what you want.  There’s a bigger gap in doing this interactively -- i.e. not a page-by-page traversal […]

negative media perception of video research

Okay, so I admit that this work isn't one that can cure recent economic troubles, but as far as video search goes, it's an example of DARPA funding used to help push the performance boundaries of what is possible in video signal processing. In a Washington Post article, a new project involving video surveillance is […]
