  • Polarimetric radar processing of AIRSAR imagery from Los Angeles basin region 

    Hedrick, Andrew T., 1983- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Extracting useful information and intelligence from polarimetric interferometric synthetic aperture radar (PolInSAR) data involves a variety of highly sophisticated processing methods. To aid in the advancement of efficient ...
  • Fall detection using acoustic features and one class classifiers 

    Mahnot, Abhishek (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    With the increasing of elderly population, there are more and more health problems occurring in everyday activities among this group of people. An investigation shows many elderly people get injures or trigger more serious ...
  • PRIMEGENSv2: a service based platform using object oriented model view controller design pattern 

    Ojha, Muneendra (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    There are a number of tools and software packages dealing with the problem of efficient primer and probe design. In an era of fast paced research it is rather difficult for any researcher to change their favorite tool. So ...
  • Multi-source ontology-based maize phenotype search engine 

    Green, Jason Michael (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    In the midst of this genomics era, major plant genome databases are collecting massive amounts of heterogeneous information, including sequence data, gene product information, as well as images and descriptions of mutant ...
  • The isolation of Western society from the revelations of nature 

    Selburg, John (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    My people have become disconnected from Nature. I live in Western society, which is a monetary-based, globalizing, technological empire that is occupying many of the world's cultures and quickly absorbing the rest. Western ...
  • Adaptive temporal difference learning of spatial memory in the water maze task 

    Stone, Erik E. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    The goal of this work was to evaluate the performance of a biologically inspired Temporal Difference (TD) approach to the learning of spatial memory for a robot in a dry version of the Morris water maze task. The Morris ...
  • Cellular neural network virtual machine for graphics hardware with applications in image processing 

    Dolan, Ryanne (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    The inherent massive parallelism of cellular neural networks makes them an ideal computational platform for kernel-based algorithms and image processing. General-purpose GPUs provide similar massive parallelism, but it can ...
  • MizzouSMP 

    Nash, Sean (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    This paper covers the implementation of a 32 Bit RISC multiprocessor MizzouSMP. It was developed from MizzouRisc, simulated on Aldec Active HDL, implemented on a Altera DE2 board. The MizzouSMP core can be configured to ...
  • Type-1 and type-2 fuzzy systems for detecting visitors in an uncertain environment 

    Reed, Kevin W. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    In this work, I have developed an algorithm to detect the presence of visitors in a noninvasive manner. This algorithm is designed as part of an in home monitoring system. The data from the algorithm will be used as a way ...
  • Self concept screening: a predictor to depression 

    Sullivan, Sybil J. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Low self-concept is commonly identified as a symptom of depression. Research has found a high level of comorbidity between low self-concept and depression. However, which precedes the other? Research demonstrates that low ...
  • General purpose evolutionary algorithm testbed 

    Tati, Kiran Kumar (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    We developed a "General Purpose Evolutionary Algorithm Testbed" through which a wide variety of evolutionary algorithms can be implemented in hardware, quickly and with a little hardware knowledge. A user interface allows ...
  • Firefly: web-based interactive tool for the visualization and validation of image processing algorithms 

    Beard, Daniel, 1983- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Image analysis, in computer science, is defined as the process of extracting useful data from digital images for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. Examples of this might include tracking objects in satellite imagery or ...
  • Efficient H.264 video coding with a working memory of objects 

    Dai, Wenqing, 1984- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Efficient spatiotemporal prediction to remove the source redundancy is critical in video coding. The newest international standard H.264 video coding introduces several advanced features, such as multiple-frame motion ...
