Realtime Computer Vision with OpenCV - ACM Queue

Realtime Computer Vision with OpenCV - ACM Queue | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

INTRO: Computer vision is a rapidly growing field devoted to analyzing, modifying, and high-level understanding of images. Its objective is to determine what is happening in front of a camera and use that understanding to control a computer or robotic system, or to provide people with new images that are more informative or esthetically pleasing than the original camera images. Application areas for computer-vision technology include video surveillance, biometrics, automotive, photography, movie production, Web search, medicine, augmented reality gaming, new user interfaces, and many more.

9:00am

Marshall Scott Poole, Director of ICHASS

GroupScope: A Multimodal System for the Study of Large Group Dynamics

 

Interested in collective action, tracking emergence service providers (live world tracking)...want to track large groups (hundreds...)

 

GroupScope: an envionment that will develop technologies to understand social interactions with a fidelity that enables breakthrough social research. 

 

Claims that he hopes the computer will do the drudgery and leave him to do the fun stuff; however, as the group of us work on coding the agenda...that is still requiring some of the drudgery (and the agenda is a short text!)

 

 Learning about HathiTrust (large text archive/corpus)

 

10:00am

Open Lab to work and collaborate.

 

11:40am Lunch

 

1:00pm Advanced Visualization 3D Lab

 

1:45pm: XSEDE (funding/support), Alan Craig

eXtreme Science & Engineering Discovery Environment

provide service to supercomputing & data analysis systems

75 consultants

currently 1290 projects

4 of 1290 are from the humanities

 

Don't define your project based on what your machine can handle. 

 

2:10pm: Conclusion

10 Things to Consider...

How to work in computational humanities or a collection of irresponsible metaphors

*Think like a fountain, not like a pond

*Knowthe branches of CS you want to work with...homework is good

*Think big, then work backwards...

*...Towards a proof of concept that can get you a publication or a grant

*You are a bat in a cave. Use your sonar.

*Your technical and scientific colleagues will learn from you

*Sometimes alliances of talented people make great research ideas, instead of great research ideas making alliances of talented people

*You are important specifically because you do not see everything as quantitative data

*But understanding which tiny pieces (or what kinds) of quantitative data (or descrete tasks) may fuel your broader analysis is crucial.

*Tech for discovery, not just implementation.  

*The bridging of low level data features to high level semantic concepts is not just a challenge facing DH; it is one of the signal challenges of the information age.

Working with networking applications.

ORA: http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/projects/ora/index.php

 

 

With the free time at the end of the day I'm trying to build a map with a heavily edited version of the workshop agenda. Once I have that analysis and visual, I'm hoping to do the same with the tweets generated through the conference and compare/contrast results. I'm even betting there is a way to combine the two texts...but that is way above my beginner pay grade.

Transforming creativity: Personalized manufacturing meets embodied computing

Abstract: This paper discusses aspects of a collaborative investigation of  embodied computing and personal manufacturing. We describe the  NeuroMaker 1.0, an artwork that playfully implements the concept of  “translating of the designer’s ideas into a product”. Visitors to the installation were invited to use their own EEG to fabricate personalized physical objects. While primarily intended to provoke thought about the process of creativity, we also demonstrated that, with the right team, radical new interfaces are well within the reach.

Topic Modeling

Topic Modeling | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM SITE: Topic models provide a simple way to analyze large volumes of unlabeled text. A "topic" consists of a cluster of words that frequently occur together. Using contextual clues, topic models can connect words with similar meanings and distinguish between uses of words with multiple meanings.

Techne » A Glossary of Digital Humanities? | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM SITE: One of the biggest challenges for digital humanities newbies is getting a handle on the vocabulary. The digital humanities community is open, welcoming, and willing to answer questions. They even created a website for that, DHAnswers. But, most newcomers don’t have enough vocabulary to be confident in framing a question.
