Computational theories for contour image analysis of things such as technical drawings, architectural plans, maps, and even cartoons to enable such images to be used in human and computer interaction. Design of computer chips to register a central region with high detail while displaying a larger zone at lower resolution. Algorithms that permit variable resolution image sequences to be understood. Techniques for visualizing common data-structures such as graphs and multidimensional data sets, and visualizing molecular structures. | More »

The project is Socio-Cultural Media Sharing as Conversations: Sensing and Modeling Behavior in Response to Environmental Changes. The goal is to create a new Social Media Ecosystem for social network analysis, especially when visual media (images, videos, etc.) sharing is used as a conversation means across different cultures.
Fu is excited about this award because it is a totally new field that he is exploring.(November 16, 2011)
This project, entitled "CPS:Medium:Quantitative Visual Sensing of Dynamic Behaviors for Home-based Progressive Rehabilitation," will last for four years. Fu's group will seek to develop a comprehensive theoretical and experimental cyber-physical framework with the intent to advance intelligent human-environment interaction capabilities in synergistic combinations of computer vision (cyber) and robotic (physical) systems. They will concretize this framework by examining individualized rehabilitation with an intelligent, articulated, and adjustable lower limb orthotic brace used to manage a major public health issue, Knee Osteoarthritis.
This is a joint project by CSE, ENS, and MAE. The grant will be used to support 1 postdoc and 3 students. Fu's two Co-PI's are Dan K. Ramsey from Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences (ENS), and Venkat Krovi from Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE).(September 1, 2011)
