A Study on Visual Representation of Medical Family Tree Using Genograms

Siti Fatimah Bokhare, Wan Mohd Nazmee Wan Zainon, Abdullah Zawawi Talib
A genogram is a graphical representation of medical conditions including informa-tion on age and cause of death of family members that can be used especially to access disease risk. The main purpose of this paper is to present the outcome of a preliminary study done regarding access-ing the current use...

Exploring The Use of Digital Games for Teaching and Learning

Wan Mohd Nazmee Wan Zainon, Abdullah Zawawi
Whether we like it or not, digital gaming and social networking are already wide-spread activities in our culture. More and more homes are now equipped with video-game consoles, computers, tablets or smart phones. The main purpose of this paper is to present an outcome of a preliminary studies done in...

An Autonomous Aesthetics-driven Photographing Instructor with Personality Prediction

Chin-Shyurng Fahn, Meng-Luen Wu
In this paper, an autonomous aesthetics-driven photographing instructor system is proposed, which gives instructions to help camera users to take good images. There are two kinds of instructions: image composition and personality feature enhancement. As for composition, a salient region is used to match...

e-learning Paradigm for Teaching Enhancement

Devendra Bhavzar, Mrunalini Badnakhe
E-learning is the interaction between a learner who strives to acquire knowledge or skills by instruction, or study with a remote knowledge source, one that is physically separated from the learner. E-learning referring to learning via the internet has become a major phenomenon in recent years. But many...

Computer Game Approach Focusing on Social Communication Skills for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Initial Study

Aisyah Abdul Manap, Sarah Reisi Dehkordi, Riaza Mohd Rias, Noor Aziezah Sardan
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. ASD is characterized by difficulties with communication, social deficits, stereotyped or repetitive behaviours and interests. One of the major reasons behind the push to use technology...

Method of Testing Mission Critical Data Transmission between an Android Device to a Windows PC via Wireless TCP Communication: PCMOTE

Syed Nasir Alsagoff
For a mission critical operation involving TCP communication, lag free and accu-rate data transmission is critical. Past re-search conducted by this author has solved the problem for wireless TCP communication between an Android de-vice and a Windows PC. To expand upon the findings of that research,...

Modelling Human Vision for Heuristics

Sean McGerty, Frank Moisladis
Human vision is a highly complex system that has evolved to enable interactions within and on our environment in an expedient and resource efficient way. Applying black box testing principles gives us insight to functional parameterizations within the brain. Neuroscience further helps us understand the...

Simulation of Aging Metal with Preservative Coating

Yutaro Kamata, Yoshitsugu Manabe, Noriko Yata
This paper describes a method of texture reproduction of realistic metal surfaces with age deterioration for applying in computer graphics. We propose a new simulation method for the peeling of preservative coatings of surfaces; the method considers the object geometry and surrounding environment. We...

The Effect of Rendering Intents on Color Quality of Digital Printing

Adel Mohamed M. Khodeir
The adjustment of color to achieve an acceptable match between the displayed and digital printed document is an important task in prepress. In order to achieve such match color management systems are used, these systems implement standards established by the International Color Consortium (ICC). A key...

Crowd-Powered Mechanisms for Viewing and Imagining Public Spaces

Shin’ichi Konomi, Tomoyo Sasao, Wataru Ohno, Kenta Shoji
Crowdsourcing allows one to collect information from a large number of citizens relatively easily, thereby creating an opportunity to provide a novel technological means to view and imagine the city, complementing conventional geovisualization and urban simulation games. We postulate that the inflexibility...

A simple yet efficient solution for secured data exchange - Hiding encrypted text in an image file

Lawrence Wu, Penn Wu
Hiding encrypted text in an image file can possibly be a feasible solution to small-office-home-office (SOHO) and personal use for data and file transmission across digital networks. In this paper, the au-thors propose a simple, low-cost, but effi-cient algorithm to (a) convert a text (short or lengthy)...
