Smart education and smart e-Learning are emerging and rapidly growing areas. They represent the innovative integration of smart systems, technologies and objects, smart environments, smart pedagogy, smart learning and academic analytics, various branches of computer science and computer engineering, and state-of-the-art smart educational software and/or hardware systems.
It contains a total of 48 peer-reviewed book chapters that are grouped into several parts: Part 1 – Smart Pedagogy, Part 2 – Smart e-Learning, Part 3 – Systems and Technologies for Smart Education, Part 4 – Smart Teaching, and Part 5 – Smart Education: National Initiatives and Approaches.
The book offers a valuable source of research data, information on best practices, and case studies for educators, researchers, Ph.D. students, administrators, and practitioners—and all those who are interested in innovative areas of smart education and smart e-Learning.
The book gathers selected contributions addressing aerial and satellite image processing and related fields. Topics covered include novel tensor and wave models, a new comparative morphology scheme, warping compensation in video stabilization, image deblurring based on physical processes of blur impacts, and a rapid and robust core structural verification algorithm for feature extraction in images and videos, among others. All chapters focus on practical implementations. Given the tremendous interest among researchers in the development and applications of computer vision paradigms in the field of business, engineering, medicine, security and aviation, this book offers a timely guide.
The book gathers selected contributions addressing a number of real-life applications including the identification of handwritten texts, watermarking techniques, simultaneous localization and mapping for mobile robots, motion control systems for mobile robots, analysis of indoor human activity, facial image quality assessment, android device controlling, processing medical images, clinical decision-making and foot progression angle detection.
Given the tremendous interest among researchers in the development and applications of computer vision paradigms in the field of business, engineering, medicine, security and aviation, the book offers a timely guide for all PhD students, professors, researchers and software developers working in the areas of digital videoprocessing and computer vision technologies.
Biomedical Informatics represents a growing area of interest and innovation in the management of health-related data, and is essential to the development of focused computational models. Outlining the direction of current research, the book will be of considerable interest to theoreticians and application scientists alike. Further, as all chapters are self-contained, it also provides a valuable sourcebook for graduate students.
Given the scope of its coverage, the book offers a valuable resource for students, researchers, practitioners, and educators interested in remote sensing and geographic information systems and applications.
