|Evaluating the Readability of Scientific Web Pages Using Intelligent Analysis Tools
||The World Wide Web (WWW) is a primary resource of information. With the growth of the WWW, it is not only enough to have a web presence, but also to have a highly readable website. Scientific web pages include text content, tables, graphs, charts, im...
|Classification of Plants Using Images of their Leaves
||Plant recognition is a matter of interest for scientists as well as laymen. Computer aided technologies can make the process of plant recognition much easier; botanists use morphological features of plants to recognize them. These features can also b...
|Audio on the GPU: Real-Time Time Domain Audio Convolution on Graphics Cards
||The architecture of CPUs has shifted in recent years from increased speed to
more cores on the chips. With this change, more developers are focusing on parallelism; however, many developers have not taken advantage of a common hardware component tha...
|Segmentation and Extraction of Individual Leaves from Plant Images for Species Classification
||Plant species classification through the examination of images of plant leaves requires as input an image of a single leaf with no stems or other non-leaf objects. Images of plants, however, usually include more than one leaf, stems, branches, flower...
|Implementation of an Automated Image Processing System for Observing the Activities of Honey Bees
||This research designed and implemented an automated system to collect data on honey bees using computer science techniques. This system utilizes image processing techniques to extract data from the videos taken in front or at the top of the hive’s en...
|Mobile Leaf Classification Application Utilizing a Convolutional Neural Network
||Plant classification is an important task in biological research. However, plant classification is a complex task that very few biologists are qualified experts to conduct. Therefore, an application to assist in this task would be extremely useful fo...
|Automated Beehive Surveillance Using Computer Vision
||The number of honey bees entering and leaving a hive throughout the day is an important metric for beekeepers monitoring the health of their hives. Activity at the hive entrance depends on many factors such as weather, colony health, and presence of ...
