Estimating Subject-Specific Parameters for Modeling Hand Joints
This talk presents a set of techniques for non-invasive estimation of kinematic parameters of articulated joints in the human hand. These methods have been previously published in the biomechanics community, but they can also be used for subject-specific hand models in animation or virtual reality applications.
Multigrid Optical Flow for Medical Volume Registration
The performance of optical-flow algorithms, used for registration of images and volumes in medical imaging, can be significantly enhanced with a combination of parallelism and algorithmic improvements, including multi-resolution approaches.
Sensorimotor Physiology: Modeling, Imaging, and Neural Control
This talk describes how two fields that are currently separate (computer animation of human-like characters and sensorimotor physiology, which studies how the human brain produces movement using muscles and proprioceptive sense organs) are poised to profoundly influence each other.
