Welcome to our first CCI newsletter for 2012. The Centre has been quick out of the blocks to start the year, with many publications out, a number of events already held, and plenty more to come. It’s shaping up as an even busier year than 2011, itself a truly impressive year of achievement, as showcased in the recently released CCI Annual Report (available at www.cci.edu.au/reports/2011.pdf )

The Internet: An Introduction to New Media

Publication date: 
1 June 2010
Type: 
book

Life without the internet, a very new technology, seems almost unimaginable for most people in western nations. Today the internet is intrinsic to media and communications, entertainment, politics, defence, business, banking, education and administrative systems as well as to social interaction. The Internet disentangles this extraordinarily complex information and communication technology from its place in our daily lives, allowing it to be examined anew.

A robust object category detection system using deformable shapes

Publication date:

Type: 
article

An object can often be uniquely identified by its shape, which is usually fairly invariant. However, when the search is for a type of object or an object category, there can be variations in object deformation (i.e. variations in body shapes) and articulation (i.e. joint movement by limbs) that complicate their detection. We present a system that can account for this articulation variation to improve the robustness of its object detection by using deformable shapes as its main search criteria.
