Time-based visual narratives for design education

Time-based visual narratives, which represents change in time through motion, has been increasingly used in various settings for advertising, education, art and visual communication in general. These narratives are effective in visual communication and perception because they include motion that enhances perception and storytelling, which is an essential component of human communication. Time-based visual narratives like film and animation have been recently used in industrial design education due to these advantages to present design ideas more effectively. However, previous research has not explored the perceptual implications of these techniques for industrial design education. This study aims to understand the potential implications of narrative component of time-based visual narrative for design presentations, i.e. perception of product concepts. Two studies were conducted to achieve this aim. The first study explored the potential implications of using time-based visual narratives in design juries based on interviews with six design educators. The findings derived from this study were used to prepare an online questionnaire for the second study, which examines the same subject on a larger scale. The results of the studies were used to formulate a general outline for design educators on how time-based visual narratives should be approached in an educational setting.

Visual Saliency Estimation via Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Field
Demirel, Berkan; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; İKİZLER CİNBİŞ, NAZLI (2016-05-19)
Visual Saliency Estimation is a computer vision problem that aims to find the regions of interest that are frequently in eye focus in a scene or an image. Since most computer vision problems require discarding irrelevant regions in a scene, visual saliency estimation can be used as a preprocessing step in such problems. In this work, we propose a method to solve top-down saliency estimation problem using Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Fields (CRF). Experimental results show that attribut...
Joint change-detection: how the interplay between scene context and object detection is affected by task setting
Akkuşcu, Mustafa; Hohenberger, Annette Edeltraud; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2017)
In this paper, we study the effects of social setting on change-detection performance: First, we investigate how detection of changing (i.e., repeatedly appearing and disappearing) objects in scene images is influenced by the scene context. If a changing object’s identity is in conflict with its surrounding context (e.g. a boat on a highway), that is a semanticallyinconsistent change; if there is no such conflict (e.g., a boat in a lake), that is a semantically-consistent change. We found, in line with prev...
Hierarchical representations for visual object tracking by detection
Beşbınar, Beril; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Deep learning is the discipline of training computational models that are composed of multiple layers and these methods have improved the state of the art in many areas such as visual object detection, scene understanding or speech recognition. Rebirth of these fairly old computational models is usually related to the availability of large datasets, increase in the computational power of current hardware and more recently proposed unsupervised training methods that exploit the internal structure of very lar...
Efficient detection and tracking of salient regions for visual processing on mobile platforms
Serhat, Gülhan; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Visual Attention is an interesting concept that constantly widens its application areas in the field of image processing and computer vision. The main idea of visual attention is to find the locations on the image that are visually attractive. In this thesis, the visually attractive regions are extracted and tracked in video sequences coming from the vision systems of mobile platforms. First, the salient regions are extracted in each frame and a feature vector is constructed for each one. Then Scale Invaria...
Augmented reality activities for children: a comparative analysis on understanding geometric shapes and improving spatial skills
Gecü-Parmaksız, Zeynep; Delialioğlu, Ömer; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2017)
The main purpose of this study is to compare the use of virtual manipulatives such as Augmented Reality (AR) applications to traditional techniques (physical manipulatives) for teaching geometric shapes and improve spatial skills to preschool children. The lesson content was determined, and the materials were designed for children. A quasi-experimental study was conducted in a public primary school with 72 participants. The children were randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. Spatial abil...
