Understanding SVG with Inkscape

Posted in Conferences, Companies

Google Tech Talks June 19, 2006 ABSTRACT SVG is an XML vector graphics standard that is gaining momentum on the web. It is supported by most browsers (IE with a plug-in) and fills a need for vector graphics in the high resolution environments that webpages are finding themselves in while still providing graphics rich experiences to mobile users with smaller file sizes. This talk will go into th...

Combining Discriminative Features to Infer Complex Trajectories

Combining Discriminative Features to Infer Complex Trajectories

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Google TechTalks June 14, 2006 David Ross ABSTRACT We propose a new model for the probabilistic estimation of continuous state variables from a sequence of observations, such as tracking the position of an object in video. This mapping is modeled as a product of dynamics features and observation features. Individual features are flexible in that they can switch on or off at each time-step depen...

Graphics Processors, Graphics APIs, and Computation on GPUs

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Development

Google Tech Talks December 5, 2006 ABSTRACT Graphics processing units (GPUs), designed to produce images ranging from scenes in computer games to CAT scan results, have become computational powerhouses capable of hundreds of gigaflops per second. As computational power has increased, so has flexibility and programmability, allowing GPUs to be applied in new ways in both graphics and non-graphic...

Google Tech Talks: Using ROSE to Mitigate Performance Trade-offs

Google Tech Talks: Using ROSE to Mitigate Performance Trade-offs

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Development

ROSE is a tool for building source-to-source transformation tools for the optimization of C and C++ object-oriented applications. ROSE represents a mechanism to build translators that read the user's application source code and output highly optimized customized C++ code. ROSE is the compiler-framework which permits library or application developers to build their own domain-specific source-to-...

End User Software Engineering

End User Software Engineering

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Development

Google Tech Talks April 27, 2007 ABSTRACT In this talk, we will consider what happens when we add to end-user programming environments consideration of the software lifecycle beyond the "coding" phase. Considering other phases is necessary, because there is ample evidence that the programs end users create are filled with errors. To help address this problem, we have been working on a...

Transactional Memory: From Semantics to Silicon

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Google Tech Talks April 25, 2007 ABSTRACT Chip-level multiprocessing has recently emerged as one of the most effective solutions to the problem of increasing processor performance. As a result, issues related to construction of scalable and reliable concurrent applications have become increasingly important. In particular, providing effective means for controlling concurrent accesses to shared ...

Faith, Evolution, and Programming Languages

Faith, Evolution, and Programming Languages

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Development

Google Tech Talks April 27, 2007 ABSTRACT Faith and evolution provide complementary--and sometimes conflicting--models of the world, and they also can model the adoption of programming languages. Adherents of competing paradigms, such as functional and object-oriented programming, often appear motivated by faith. Families of related languages, such as C, C++, Java, and C#, may arise from pressu...
