On the trajectory of video quality transition in HTTP adaptive video streaming

HTTP adaptive video streaming matches video quality to the capacity of a changing context. A variety of schemes that rely on buffer state dynamics for video rate selection have been proposed. However, these schemes are predominantly based on heuristics, and appropriate models describing the relationship between video rate and buffer levels have not received sufficient attention. In ...

Rule-based approach to recognizing human body poses and gestures in real time

In this paper we propose a classifier capable of recognizing human body static poses and body gestures in real time. The method is called the gesture description language (GDL). The proposed methodology is intuitive, easily thought and reusable for any kind of body gestures. The very heart of our approach is an automated reasoning module. It performs forward chaining reasoning ...

Timelines: simplifying the programming of lag compensation for the next generation of networked games

Lag compensation algorithms used in networked games require programmers to manage the complexities of dealing with both time and shared state. This can make implementing lag compensation techniques challenging. The difficulties in expressing these algorithms limit experimentation with different algorithms and inhibit programmers from exploring the space of the algorithms and ...
