In communication settings, statistical graphs accompany language by providing visual access to various aspects of domain entities, such as conveying information about trends. A similar and comparable means for providing perceptual access is to provide haptic graphs for blind people. In this study, we present the results of an experimental study that aimed to investigate visual line graphs and haptic line graphs in time domain by means of gesture production as an indicator of event conceptualization. The participants were asked to produce single sentence summaries of visual graphs and haptic graphs. The gestures that were produced during the course of verbal descriptions were analyzed. The results showed that directional gestures accompanied verbal descriptions of both visual graphs and haptic graphs. Further analyses revealed differences between visual graphs and haptic graphs in terms of type of gestures, as well as the production rates.

Estimation of partially observed multiple graph signals by learning spectrally concentrated graph kernels
Turhan, Gülce; Vural, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-3-31)
Graph models provide flexible tools for the representation and analysis of signals defined over domains such as social or sensor networks. However, in real applications data observations are often not available over the whole graph, due to practical problems such as broken sensors, connection loss, or storage problems. In this thesis, we study the problem of estimating partially observed graph signals on multiple graphs. We consider possibly multiple graph domains over which a set of signals is available wi...
Gestures in communication through line graphs
Özge, Alaçam; Christopher, Habel; Acartürk, Cengiz (null; 2012-08-31)
Line graphs are widely used in communication settings, for conveying information about states and processes that unfold in time. The communication is achieved by the contribution of other modalities than graphs, such as language and gestures. In a set of experimental investigations, we analyzed the production and comprehension of gestures during communication through line graphs. The findings reveal a systematic use of gestures as well as the limitations of cognitive resources due to the split of attention ...
ESTIMATION OF TIME VARYING GRAPH SIGNALS WITH GRAPH ARMA PROCESSES
Güneyi, Eylem Tuğçe; Vural, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-8)
Graph models provide efficient tools for analyzing data defined over irregular domains such as social networks, sensor networks, and transportation networks. Real-world graph signals are usually time-varying signals. The characterization of the joint behavior of time-varying graph signals in the time and the vertex domains has recently arisen as an interesting research problem, contrasted to the independent processing of graph signals acquired at different time instants. The concept of wide sense stationari...
Towards a systematic understanding of graphical cues in communication through statistical graphs
Acartürk, Cengiz (2014-04-01)
Statistical graphs in particular, line graphs and bar graphs are efficient means of communication in a wide range of non-expert settings. In communication settings, statistical graphs do not only serve as visualizations of individual data points but also provide visual access to various aspects of the information contained in data. Moreover, specific types of graphs are better means for providing visual access to certain aspects of data. For instance, trend information is visually conveyed through line grap...
Investigation of the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software on fault-proneness
Gölcük, Halit; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This study investigates the effects of structural characteristics of object-oriented software, which are observable at the model level of the software developed by means of Unified Modeling Language (UML), on software quality, assessing quality in terms of fault-proneness. In the scope of this thesis study, real-time embedded software components developed by Aselsan, a leading defense industry company in Turkey, were analyzed. The correlation between software metrics measured from the UML models of the soft...
