A qualitative inquiry of reviews of films featuring digital humanlike characters was performed by sampling user comments from three online reviewer aggregator sites: the Inter...

Coordinated parallel views for the exploratory analysis of microarray time-course data.

Conference Proceeding
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005)
Coordinated parallel views for the exploratory analysis of microarray time-course data. https://doi.org/10.1109/CMV.2005.5
Microarray time-course data relate to the recorded activity of thousands of genes, in parallel, over multiple discrete points in time during a biological process. Existing tec...

Deep Precomputed Radiance Transfer for Deformable Objects

Journal Article
Li, Y., Wiedemann, P., & Mitchell, K. (2019)
Deep Precomputed Radiance Transfer for Deformable Objects. Proceedings of the ACM on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, 2(1), 1-16. https://doi.org/10.1145/3320284
We propose, DeepPRT, a deep convolutional neural network to compactly encapsulate the radiance transfer of a freely deformable object for rasterization in real-time. With pre...
