Simulating humans: computer graphics animation and control

1994 ChoiceReviews  
Likewise we learn how to describe the actions and behaviors of others without consciously struggling with the processes of perception, recognition, and language.  ...  The very ubiquitousness of other people in our lives poses a tantalizing challenge to the computational modeler: people are at once the most common object of interest and yet the most structurally complex  ...  John is a 50 percentile male.

Rasp: Robotics and animation simulation platform

Gene S. Lee
The RASP toolkit is highlighted by the following set of features: (a) IMVCD - a framework for the construction of time-varying systems; (b) Connection Paradigm - a "port"-based approach to data communication  ...  To resolve this problem, this thesis presents the RASP (Robotic and Animation Simulation Platform) toolkit - an extensible collection of primitives, functions, and essential abstractions for the creation  ...  SUMMARY This chapter has presented a brief summary of a variety of three-dimensional computer graphics toolkits.  ...

New Methods for Large-Scale Analyses of Social Identities and Stereotypes

Kenneth Joseph
In this thesis, I first develop three novel computational tools that further our ability to test and utilize existing social theory on identity and stereotypes.  ...  These tools include a method to extract identities from Twitter data, a method to infer affective stereotypes from newspaper data and a method to infer both affective and semantic stereotypes from Twitter  ...  Instead, we place identities and behaviors into a more empirically consistent three-dimensional latent, affective space.  ...

Breaking the time barrier

Michaela Gertrude Schober
2012 unpublished
Would there be, for instance, a difference between travelling with and without a time machine? If so, does this also relate in any way to time travel paradoxes, and if yes, to which?  ...  In the second part a number of primary sources will be analysed and interpreted against the background of the theoretical concepts that have been discussed before.  ...  Apart from drawing a rather sorry picture of the human race, the text tunes down even further the interaction between time traveller (or in this case, rather time travelling device) and its surroundings  ...

Telepresence: Joan Jonas and the Emergence of Performance and Video Art in the 1970s

Gillian Turner Young
In contrast, I argue that what at stake in the proliferation of live artworks by Jonas and others that merged performance and video was not a reserve of unmediated experience, but a presence that was newly  ...  as a seemingly very contemporary (and increasingly pervasive) category of experience.  ...  of a long-distance view to the three-dimensional experience of sculpture.  ...
