  • Alexander, Samuel T.V.; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    A method of peer tutoring was used and evaluated in an introductory programming course in Haskell. Students were paired on the basis of skill level with pairings opposite those suggested by the existing literature. This ...
  • Fourie, Leon; Overmyer, Scott; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Alexander, Samuel T.V. (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    Easy with Eve is an affect-sensitive tutoring system that features Eve, an animated pedagogical agent that adapts to student emotion based on the results of an observational study of human tutors. This paper presents the ...
  • Fourie, Leon; Pang, Shaoning; Kingston, Tamsin; Hettema, Hinne; Watters, Paul; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    Cyber threats pose substantial risk to government, businesses and individuals. There is an alarming shortage of trained professionals and academic programs to train and produce these professionals. Many countries including ...
  • Jayawardena, Chandimal; Kuo, I-Han; MacDonald, Bruce A. (IEEE International Conference on Cybernetics and Intelligent System & Robotics, Automation and Mechatronics, 2013)
    One of the main challenges in socially assistive robotics is providing flexible and easy-to-use programming tools for users. Unlike other robots, designing socially assistive robots includes the subject-matter-experts ...
  • Jayawardena, Chandimal; Baghaei, Nilufar; Ganeshan, Kathiravelu; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (IEEE International Conference on Cybernetics and Intelligent System & Robotics, Automation and Mechatronics, 2013)
    Developing socially assistive robots is an emerging interdisciplinary research area, which requires collaboration between a wide range of disciplines. Among recent research projects, there have been attempts to develop ...
  • Dacey, Simon; Song, Lei; Pang, Shaoning (ICONIP 2013 : 20th International Conference on Neural Information Processing, 2013)
    Land management and planning is essential to assist the economic growth, sustainable resource use and environmental protection of a city. This paper describes a novel approach to automatic encroachment detection to assist ...
  • Fazeli, Fatemeh; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid (Proceedings of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2013)
    This paper surveys binarization of document images. The main role of binarization is dimension and noise reduction. Binarization is one of the most important steps in preprocessing of document image understanding and ...
  • Nazari, Mousa; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Proceedings of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2013)
    Fuzzy C-means (FCM) is a powerful clustering algorithm and has been introduced to overcome the crisp definition of similarity and clusters. FCM ignores the importance of features in the clustering process. This affects its ...
  • Ardekani, Iman; Abdulla, Waleed H. (IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) (2013), 2013)
    This paper concerns about the theoretical stability of the adaptation process performed by the Filtered-x Least Mean Square (FxLMS) algorithm in active control of acoustic noise. A dynamic model for the Variance of Residual ...
  • Rezaei, , Sepideh Barekat; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid (Proceedings of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2013)
    Skewing of the scanned image is an inevitable process and its detection is an important issue for document recognition systems. The skew of the scanned document image specifies the deviation of the text lines from the ...
  • Ardekani, Iman; Abdulla, Waleed H. (Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics, 2013)
    This paper concerns adaptive active control of acoustic noise in free space. Conventional adaptive active noise control algorithms are efficient in acoustic ducts or headphones; however, they are very sensitive when being ...
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Rezazadeh, Fatemeh; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid (Proceedings of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2013)
    Abstract—Image enhancement is a fundamental step of image processing and machine vision to improve the quality of an image for a specific application. Histogram equalization is an attractive and commonly-employed image ...
  • Basheri, Mohammed; Burd, Liz; Munro, Malcolm; Baghaei, Nilufar (10th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, 2013)
    The use of Multi-touch interfaces for collaborative learning has received significant attention. Their ability to synchronously accommodate multiple users is an advantage in co-located collaborative design tasks. This paper ...
  • Farahmand, Atena; Sarrafzadeh, Abdolhossein; Shanbehzadeh, Jamshid (Proceedings of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2013)
    Document images may be contaminated with noise during transmission, scanning or conversion to digital form. We can categorize noises by identifying their features and can search for similar patterns in a document image to ...
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (3rd International eConference on Computer and Knowledge Engineering (ICCKE 2013), 2013)
    Many software systems would significantly improve performance if they could adapt to the emotional state of the user, for example if e-learning systems, Automatic Teller Machines, ticketing machines and robotic systems ...
  • Sowerby, Kevin; Rehman, Saeed; Coghill, Colin (Virginia Tech Symposium on Wireless Personal Communications., 2013)
    Radio Frequency (RF) Fingerprinting Problem definition Objective Experiment setup Results Conclusion Radio fingerprinting is the process of identifying a radio transmitter by the unique characteristics present in its ...
  • Rehman, Saeed (IEEE NZ Wireless Workshop., 2013)
    Radio Frequency (RF) Fingerprinting Research gaps Objective Experiment setup Results Conclusion Radio fingerprinting is the process of identifying a radio transmitter by the unique characteristics present in its ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (8th International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology, 2012)
    In this paper we show that a hierarchical phrasebased translation system will outperform a classical (nonhierarchical) phrase-based system in the English-to-Persian translation direction, yet for the Persian-to-English ...
