The achieved recognition results demonstrate that it is in fact possible

We present an mbt moja important aspect of our human-robot communication interface which is being developedin the context of our long-term research framework PERSES dealing with highly interactive mobile companionrobots. Based on a multi-modal mbt shop uk people detection and tracking system, we present a hierarchical neural architec-ture that estimates a target point at the mbt shop london floor indicated mbt shoes john lewis uk  by a pointing pose, thus enabling a user to navigate a mo-bile robot to a specific target position in his local surroundings by means of pointing.

In this context, we wereespecially interested in determining whether it is possible to accomplish such a target point estimator using onlymonocular images of low-cost cameras. The estimator  mbt boots canada has been implemented and experimentally investigated onour mobile robotic assistant… HOROS. Although only monocular image data of relatively poor quality were util-ized, the estimator accomplishes a good estimation mbt outlet singapore performance, achieving an accuracy better than that of a hu-man viewer on the same data.

The achieved recognition results demonstrate that it is in fact possible to realize auser-independent pointing direction estimation using monocular images only, but further efforts are necessary toimprove the robustness of this approach for everyday application.

Procedural rights offered by state-sponsored consumerism not only can extend social citizenship

The article begins by considering moves to establish Social Europe, alongside the European Unions single market, and the emphasis within the formulation of Social Europe on an employment-based model of social citizenship. mbt john lewis This employment-based model is considered to be too limited for application to the social services.

Accordingly, two other models are placed within the context of continuing European debate. These models are termed state clienthood and state-sponsored consumerism. The social democratic model of state cli-enthood is considered to be flawed by its neglect of the mbt midnight power exercised by the state over users of social services and by its lack of concern with mbt shoes clearance uk  individual needs. mbt shoes john lewis The potential of state-sponsored consumerism to open up questions concerning the rights of users of… social services and responsiveness to their individual needs is explored and the conclusion is reached that, despite its inauspicious beginnings as part of the mbt tataga New Rights reform programme, this model has possibilities for enhancing social citizenship.

Procedural rights offered by state-sponsored consumerism not only can extend social citizenship within mbt outlet milano  existing social services provision but also can serve as a precursor to the wider participation of citizens in the social services, as the site of a continuing struggle around their rights.

This study analysed 9 to 11 year old children’s drawings of tropical rainforests

This study analysed 9 to 11 year old children’s drawings of tropical rainforests immediately mbt shoes london before and after a visit to the Humid Tropics Biome at the Eden Project, Cornwall, UK. A theoretical framework derived from considerations of informal learning and constructivism was used as a basis to develop a methodology to interpret the children’s drawings and to measure the change in  mbt uk  children’s perceptions and learning after their visit.

The children’s pre-visit drawings mainly showed tree and plant outlines familiar to an English countryside. Rainforest animals were to the fore in the pictures and there was a general lack of scale, depth and mbt boots ebay perspective in the drawings. In the post-visit drawings, the animals had mainly disappeared. There was often remarkable accuracy in the shape and detail… of the tropical rainforest trees and plants now drawn.

The post-visit drawings also mbt chapa demonstrated  mbt boots uk  far greater depth, scale and perspective than the pre-visit drawings. The interpretation and analysis of the drawings gave insights into children’s understanding and learning about tropical rainforests and demonstrated that analysis of children’s drawings can be an effective method of assessing some mbt john lewis uk aspects of their learning.

The regions of robustnes obtained show that while most users

When the two-sample t-test has equal sample slies, it is widely mbt outlet online considered to be a robust procedure (with respect to the significaoce level) under violatioa of the assuaptioo of equal variances.

This paper is mbt john lewis coa-earned with a quantification of the amount of robustness which this procedure has under such violations, The mbt john lewis sale  approach is through the concept of “religion of robustness” and the resluts show an extremely strong degree of robustness for the equal an extremely strong degree mbt meli of robustness for the equal sample size t-test, probably more so than most statistyicians realise. This extremely high level of robustness, however, reduces quickly as the sample sizes begin to vary from equality.

The regions of robustnes obtained show that while most users would likely be  mbt boots clearance satisfied with the… degree of robustness inherent when the two sample sizes each vary by 10% from equality, most would wish to be much more cautions when the variation is 20%. The study mbt karibu covers sample sizes n1 -= n 2 = 5(5)30(10)50 plus 10% and 20% variations thereof for the two-tailed test and nominal significance levels of 0.01 and 0.05.
