International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2016 – Session 2B

2 months ago
Talks and presentations from the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2016. IWSLT is an annual workshop on annual scientific workshop on Spoken Language Translation and related technologies (e.g., Automated Speech Recognition, Machine Translation, Speech Translation, etc.), with an associated open evaluation campaign on spoken language translation. Full program can also be seen here: […]
The systematic normal form of lattices, and their algorithmic applications.

The systematic normal form of lattices, and their algorithmic applications.

2 months ago
The systematic normal form of lattices is a new echelon form of lattices in which the entries obey a certain co-primality condition. These lattices can be used to approximate efficiently any lattice, and hence are as hard to solve as any lattice. We show that this special structure gives rise to several interesting mathematical properties, […]

Internet Cryptography for the Quantum World

Quantum mechanics has profound implications for cryptography. It tells us that perfectly-secure key-exchange is possible, and that factoring is not a good basis for secure encryption. More generally, it tells us that quantum data and quantum computation are more fundamental than their classical counterparts. As a result, it stands to reason that the Internet of […]
A Practical Guide to Neural Machine Translation

A Practical Guide to Neural Machine Translation

2 months ago
In the last two years, attentional-sequence-to-sequence neural models have become the state-of-the-art in machine translation, far surpassing the accuracy phrasal translation systems of in many scenarios. However, these Neural Machine Translation (NMT) systems are not without their difficulties: training a model on a large-scale data set can often take weeks, and they are typically much […]

With globalization and workforce mobility, there is a strong need of research and development of advanced infrastructures and tools to bring immersive experience into teleconferencing so people across geographically distributed sites can interact collaboratively. The Personal Telepresence Station project aims at bringing Telepresence experience to offices. We try to replicate the same experience people enjoy […]
Projector-Whiteboard-Camera System for Remote Collaboration

Projector-Whiteboard-Camera System for Remote Collaboration

2 months ago
In such a setup, the captured video contains writings or user gesture (foreground) along with projected contents. If we simply send the image for display on the other end, there could be a feedback loop that will distort the projected image. After a few frames, some part of the image becomes saturated and some part […]
Multimodal Presence Detection

Multimodal Presence Detection

An office presence detection system is presented in this paper. Context information from multi-sensory inputs is integrated to infer a user’s activities in an office. We design a layered architecture to model human activities with different granularities. An IHDR (Incremental Hierarchical Discriminant Regression) tree is used to automatically generate models for acoustic signals from unsegmented […]

Stream whiteboard contents to remote party for annotation and real-time feedback. The whiteboard contents captured by a video camera have been processed in real time to remove foreground moving objects and to enhance image quality.
