50 Salads

Stephen McKenna & Sebastian Stein
50 Salads Activity recognition research has shifted focus from distinguishing full-body motion patterns to recognizing complex interactions of multiple entities. Manipulative gestures - characterized by interactions between hands, tools, and manipulable objects - frequently occur in food preparation, manufacturing, and assembly tasks, and have a variety of applications including situational support, automated supervision, and skill assessment. With the aim to stimulate research on recognizing manipulative gestures we introduce the 50 Salads dataset. It captures 25...

Structural Characterisation of Printable Noble Metal/Poly(Vinyl-­‐ Alcohol) Nanocomposites for Optical Applications

Andrew Hourd, Richard Baker & Amin Abdolvand
In order to enable exploitation of noble metal/poly(vinyl-­‐alcohol) nanocomposites for device fabrication, solutions of poly(vinyl-­‐alcohol) suitable for piezo-­‐driven inkjet printing techniques are identified and discussed in terms of their material properties. The printable poly(vinyl-­‐alcohol) medium is then exploited as a host material through the formation of silver or gold nanoparticles in order to create nanocomposites that exhibit a surface plasmon resonance behaviour associated with the small metallic inclusions. To mitigate some of the material redistribution...

Myosin II-mediated cell shape changes and cell intercalation contribute to primitive streak formation

Emil Rozbicki, Manli Chuai, Antti I. Karjalainen, Feifei Song, Helen M. Sang, René Martin, Hans-Joachim Knölker, Michael P. MacDonald & Cornelis J. Weijer
The dataset shown represents a timelapse sequence showing cell and tissue dynamics during primitive streak formation in chick embryo. The data were acquired using Myr-GFP embryos and a custom built light-sheet microscope. The sequence shows the developmental period covering the time interval from the freshly laid egg (stage EGXIII), prior to the onset of tissue movement until the end of the formation of the primitive streak (Stage HH4). Shown here is only one of the...

Imprinting of Glass Fleming, Goldie & Abdolvand Opt Mater Express 2015

Lauren Fleming, David Goldie & Amin Abdolvand
A diffractive optical element is fabricated in soda-lime float glass using a simple and inexpensive process. The glass is sandwiched between a mesh anode (lattice constant 2 μm) and a flat metal cathode. Applying a direct current while at a moderately elevated temperature of 553 K induces thermal poling of the glass. The result is that the structured pattern of the electrode is imprinted on the glass as the electric field causes ion depleted regions...

Accelerometer localization

Stephen McKenna & Sebastian Stein
Accelerometer localization With accelerometers becoming increasingly ubiquitous (through, e.g., smartphones and tablets) there is a growing interest in fusing accelerometer data with visual data. Combining these sensor types has strong potential as they provide complementary information. While accelerometers capture subtleties in the movement of the device, computer vision may, for example, put this information into spatial context and into relation with other entities. This dataset captures the problem of localizing an accelerometer in the visual...

Whole Genome Sequencing Variant Call Files for Trypanosoma brucei clones resistant to nifurtimox or fexinidazole

Alan Fairlamb, Bernado Foth & Matthew Berriman
Genomic DNA prepared from parental and drug resistant clones from T.brucei was sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer. The Illumina data were aligned against the T.brucei TREU927 reference genome and variants were called using SAMtools v0.1.19 and BCF tools. The files are in variant call format listing all 190064 genomic positions at which any one of the six drug-resistant and the parental parasite lines had a variant call.

Multimodal Focused Interaction Dataset

Bano & McKenna
Recording of daily life experiences from a first-person perspective has become more prevalent with the increasing availability of wearable cameras and sensors. This dataset was captured during development of a system for automatic detection of social interactions in such data streams, and in particular focused interactions in which co-present individuals, having mutual focus of attention, interact by establishing face-to-face engagement and direct conversation. Existing public datasets for social interaction captured from first person perspective tend...
