In the year 2000 a competition was organised to collect face verification results on an identical, publicly available data set using a standard evaluation protocol. The database used was the Xm2vts database along with the Lausanne protocol [14]. Four different institutions submitted results on the database which were subsequently published in [13]. Three years later, a second contest using the same dataset and protocol was organised as part of AVBPA 2003. This time round seven seperate institutions submitted results to the competition. This paper presents the results of the competition and shows that verification results on this protocol have increased in performance by a factor of 3. © Springer-Verlag 2003.

Robust estimation and hypothesis testing under short-tailedness and inliers
Akkaya, Ayşen (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-06-01)
Estimation and hypothesis testing based on normal samples censored in the middle are developed and shown to be remarkably efficient and robust to symmetric short-tailed distributions and to inliers in a sample. This negates the perception that sample mean and variance are the best robust estimators in such situations (Tiku, 1980; Dunnett, 1982).
End User Evaluation of the FAIR4Health Data Curation Tool

The aim of this study is to build an evaluation framework for the user-centric testing of the Data Curation Tool. The tool was developed in the scope of the FAIR4Health project to make health data FAIR by transforming them from legacy formats into a Common Data Model based on HL7 FHIR. The end user evaluation framework was built by following a methodology inspired from the Delphi method. We applied a series of questionnaires to a group of experts not only in different roles and skills, but also from various...
Improvement of Hyperspectral Classification Accuracy with Limited Training Data Using Meanshift Segmentation
Özdemir, Okan Bilge; Çetin, Yasemin (2014-04-25)
In this study, the performance of hyperspectral classification algorithms with limited training data investigated. Support Vector Machines (SVM) with Gaussian kernel is used. Principle Component Analysis (PCA) is employed for preprocessing and meanshift segmentation is used to incorporate spatial information with spectral information to observe the effect spatial information. Pattern search algorithm is used to optimize meanshift segmentation parameters. The performance of the algorithm is demonstrated on h...
Performance Evaluation of Building Detection and Digital Surface Model Extraction Algorithms: Outcomes of the PRRS 2008 Algorithm Performance Contest
Aksoy, Selim; Ozdemir, Bahadir; Eckert, Sandra; Kayitakire, Francois; Pesarasi, Martino; Aytekin, Orsan; Borel, Christoph C.; Cech, Jan; Christophe, Emmanuel; Duzgun, Sebnem; Erener, Arzu; Ertugay, Kivanc; Hussain, Ejaz; Inglada, Jordi; Lefevre, Sebastien; Ok, Oezguen; San, Dilek Koc; Sara, Radim; Shan, Jie; et.al. (2008-01-01)
This paper presents the initial results of the Algorithm Performance Contest that was organized as part of the 5th IAPR Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Remote Sensing (PRRS 2008). The focus of the 2008 contest was automatic building detection and digital surface model (DSM) extraction. A QuickBird data set With manual ground truth was used for building detection evaluation, and a stereo Ikonos data set with a highly accurate reference DSM was used for DSM extraction evaluation. Nine submissions were rece...
Highly dependable concurrent programming using design for verification
Betin Can, Aysu (2007-06-01)
There has been significant progress in automated verification techniques based on model checking. However, scalable software model checking remains a challenging problem. We believe that this problem can be addressed using a design for verification approach based on design patterns that facilitate scalable automated verification. In this paper, we present a design for verification approach for highly dependable concurrent programming using a design pattern for concurrency controllers. A concurrency controll...
