Background Matting: The World is Your Green Screen [article]

Soumyadip Sengupta, Vivek Jayaram, Brian Curless, Steve Seitz, Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Most existing matting methods require a green screen background or a manually created trimap to produce a good matte. Automatic, trimap-free methods are appearing, but are not of comparable quality.  ...  In our trimap free approach, we ask the user to take an additional photo of the background without the subject at the time of capture.  ...  This work was supported by NSF/Intel Visual and Experimental Computing Award #1538618 and the UW Reality Lab.  ...

Reducing Cognitive Impairment Among Dementia Users Through Mobile Application

Nur Atheera Mohd Hassan, Aslina Baharum, Zaidatol Haslinda Abdullah Sani, Kent Chau, Noorsidi Aizuddin Mat Noor
2021 Pertanika journal of science & technology  
Four verified dementia people were involved in the evaluation of the effectiveness of the application. The evaluation of the application includes some good points.  ...  Cognitive impairment includes the lacking ability to remember things, disorientation in remembering the current location, and the struggle to find the correct word.  ...  For example, when it is morning, an image that indicates that it is now the morning is set as background, and an afternoon-looking image is set when the time of the day is currently in the afternoon.  ...
