Achieving Common Grounds in Communication 3 Via Interfaces: A Role of Spatial Frames for Reference

- Abstract The current paper argues for synchronising spatial frames of reference for achieving effective multiparty communication in collaborative virtual environments. Synchronising nonverbal behaviour from different modalities is an important step for simulating face-to-face-interaction where all nonverbal cues are available. Such synchronisation also serves as an effective basis for building multimodal interfaces especially if these have to be deployed for multiparty communication. It is argued that common spatial reference frames are helpful in coordinating different points of attention and facilitating work by serving as the springboard for joint attention among members of the team....   [tags: Math]

Most methods for foreground region detection in videos are challenged by the presence of quasi-stationary backgrounds flickering monitors, waving tree branches, moving water surfaces or rain. Additional difficulties are caused by camera shake or by the presence of moving objects in every image....   [tags: Computer, Application]

The Special Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein

The Space Shuttle Tragedy Of The Columbia And Challenger

- NASA has faced many tragedies during their time; but one can question if two of the tragedies were preventable by changing some critical decisions made by the organization. The investigation board looking at the decisions made for the space shuttle tragedies of the Columbia and Challenger noted that the “loss resulted as much from organizational as from technical failures” (Bolman & Deal, 2008, p. 191). The two space shuttle tragedies were about twenty years apart, they both had technical failures but politics also played a factor in to these two tragedies....   [tags: Space Shuttle, Space Shuttle Columbia]

How to Measure the Effectiveness of a Business

- Governance is simply the system of government an organization has and what its rules, laws, and policies are. Administration is the implementation of these policies. While an organization’s governance may remain the same, the administration of an organization can change, depending on who is “in charge” and what administrative or leadership style(s) they exhibit.

- Mary Shelley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge are two recognized writers of the Romantic era. The influence of Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere is reflected in Shelley’s Frankenstein in terms of narrative structure, literary techniques and themes.

Film Review : Spike Jonze 's Film

- Spike Jonze’s film Her reveals the increasing complexity of intimate relationships concordant with the ever-growing presence of technology in our lives. In the frequent—almost excessive—moments of bright, lively red, we see the hope, desire, or even existence of intimacy. However, the few juxtaposed moments lacking red create a serious, threatening distinction between life with and without this sense of closeness and affinity. Through the powerful, effective use of mise-en-scène elements, tone, and off-screen space, the viewer gains insight into a possible future without intimacy as Sam and Theo’s relationship evolves and eventually corrodes....   [tags: Interpersonal relationship, Love]
