Returning Control to the Programmer: SIMD Intrinsics for Virtual Machines, in ACM Queue Feb 2011.
A Cost-Efficient L1–L2 Multicore Interconnect: Performance, Power, and Area Considerations, from IBM, in TCSI March 2011. A lot of effort is spent on analysing the activity factor of the components for optimal choice of threshold voltage.
On the Roots of Wireless Communications, in Circuits and Systems Magazine 2011. The story starts in 1800s and ends in the 1920s.
Two interesting papers in Computer Graphics and Applications March-April 2011:
- Colorization Using the Rotation-Invariant Feature Space, rotation-invariant Gabor filter and feature space optimization is used.
- A Virtual Reality Simulator for Ultrasound-Guided Biopsy Training, stitching volumetric data using 3D SIFT.
Fast Communication Architecture Exploration of Processor Pool-Based MPSoC via Static Performance Analysis, in TCAD March 2011. Its trace-based bandwidth analysis and memory contention analysis seem to be accurate for random traffic. It is unknown whether it will be accurate for real application. The architecture template in the paper has coarse grained contention. It is unknown whether the contention analysis will work for multiple banked SRAMs in an SIMD cluster, e.g. in GPUs.
Two-Degree-of-Freedom Active Vibration Control of a Prototyped “Smart” Rotor, from Delft, in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology March 2011. The design methodology is well discussed in the paper. Both first principles modelling (physical modelling) and experimental modelling (system identification) are used.
Coded Strobing Photography: Compressive Sensing of High Speed Periodic Videos, in TPAMI April 2011. It works for periodic video sequences. However, it does have some pointers to super-resolution techniques. For example, it points to two papers on the fundamental limitations of super-resolution:
- Limits on super-resolution and how to break them, in TPAMI 2002.
- Fundamental limits of reconstruction-based superresolution algorithms under local translation, in TPAMI 2004.
- Comments on “Fundamental limits of reconstruction-based superresolution algorithms under local translation”, in TPAMI 2006.
Some other references on super-resolution:
- Motion deblurring and super-resolution from an image sequence , in ECCV 96.
- Example-Based Super-Resolution, in Computer Graphics and Applications 2002.
- MRI inter-slice reconstruction using super-resolution, in MRI 2002.
- Improving resolution by image registration, in 1994.
There are other interesting paper in TPAMI March 2011:
- Context-Dependent Kernels for Object Classification. SVM with context-aware kernels has a clear win over SVM with context-free kernels.
- Dynamic Programming and Graph Algorithms in Computer Vision. These algorithmic patterns should be supported in a vision processors.
- Linearized Motion Estimation for Articulated Planes, articulated constrains are applied to gradient based motion estimation for an affine camera and feature based motion estimation for a projective camera.
- Robust Stereo Matching Using Adaptive Normalized Cross-Correlation
- Topology-Adaptive Mesh Deformation for Surface Evolution, Morphing, and Multiview Reconstruction
Signal Processing Magazine March 2011 has a special issue on Compressive Sensing. The Signal Processing Magazine also has some interesting articles on giving presentation:
- Effective Communication: Excellence in a Technical Presentation [DSP Education], in March 2008.
- Storytelling—The Missing Art in Engineering Presentations [DSP Education], in March 2011.
Two paper in IISWC 2009 on workload characterization of feature detection:
- Image feature extraction for mobile processors
- Performance characterization and optimization of mobile augmented reality on handheld platforms
Some interesting papers in TVLSI March 2011:
- High Performance and Area Efficient Flexible DSP Datapath Synthesis. It uses an architecture template with flexible pipeline stages (FPS) and both horizontal and vertical parallelism.
- On-Chip Interconnect Analysis of Performance and Energy Metrics Under Different Design Goals. However, usually the designers do not know the design goals of the interconnection. The designers only know the design goals of the whole system. For example, a complete system optimized for power may need an interconnection optimized for delay.
Compressive Rendering: A Rendering Application of Compressed Sensing, in TVCG April 2011. It reduces the number of pixels to be processed by 30% without compromising too much quality.
