Diabetes is a type of metabolic disease presented by high blood sugar and that leads to significantly decrease the quality of life causing various symptoms. It is essential to manage a systematic menu for preventing such diabetes even though there are some ways for it including diet, physical exercise, medicinal prescription, and so on. This study proposes a smart phone based personalized menu management system for achieving the systematic diabetes management. At the present time almost menu systems for diabetes patients are subjectively prescribed by dietitians or doctors and that does not reflect current situations and personal preferences. The system proposed in this study provides the menu for diabetes patients according to season, weather, time, and personal preferences. In particular, the recipe and personalized menu for patients can be provided without limiting any time and location based on smart phone services, and its menu can easily be changed or selected by the phone.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.010
In this paper, we design digital D-PHY link chip controling DSI (Display Serial Interface) that meets MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) standard. The D-PHY supports a high-speed (HS) mode for fast data traffic and a low-power (LP) mode for control transactions. For low power consumption, the unit blocks in digital D-PHY are optionally switched using the clock gating technique. The proposed low power digital D-PHY is simulated and compared with conven tional one about power consumption on each transaction mode. As a result, power consumptions of TX, RX, and total in HS mode decrease 74%, 31%, and 50%, respectively. In LP mode, power reduction rates of TX, RX, and total are 79%, 40%, and 51.5%, separately. We implemented the low power MIPI D-PHY digital chip using
CMOS process under 1.2V supply.

In this paper, we propose a method for generating a realistic object panorama by considering geometric transformations of camera views in a general photographing environment. In the proposed method, we first model a trumpet-shape panorama space based on geometric transformations of camera, such as vertical rotation and horizontal rotation movement around a target model. We then generate an object panorama by mapping model images to the trumpet-shape panorama space. To evaluate the performance of the proposed method, experiments were conducted on a large size model, which is quite difficult for us to generate the object panorama without special equipments in general. The experimental results show that the proposed method can effectively generate an object panorama, which is usually generated in a special photographing environment, regardless of the size of target model.

Park, Jun-Qyu ; Baek, Seong-Joon ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 27~33
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.027
In this study, we conducted the classification experiments with GMM (Gaussian Mixture Model) from combining the extracted features by using microphone, Gyro sensor and Acceleration sensor in 9 different environment types. Existing studies of Context Aware wanted to recognize the Environment situation mainly using the Environment sound data with microphone, but there was limitation of reflecting recognition owing to structural characteristics of Environment sound which are composed of various noises combination. Hence we proposed the additional application methods which added Gyro sensor and Acceleration sensor data in order to reflect recognition agent's movement feature. According to the experimental results, the method combining Acceleration sensor data with the data of existing Environment sound feature improves the recognition performance by more than 5%, when compared with existing methods of getting only Environment sound feature data from the Microphone.
DOA Estimation of Multiple Signal and Adaptive Beam-forming for Mobile Communication Environments
Yang, Doo-Yeong ; Lee, Min-Soo ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 34~42
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.034
The DOA(direction of arrival), which is based on parametric and nonparametric estimation algorithm, and adaptive beamforming algorithm for mobile communication environments are researched and analyzed. In parametric estimation algorithm, eigenvalues of the signal component and the noise component are obtained from correlation matrix of received signal by array antenna and power spectrum of the received signal is discriminated from them. Otherwise, in nonparametric estimation algorithm, we minimize a regularized objective function for finding a estimate of the signal energy as a function of angle, using nonquadratic norm which leads to supper resolution and noise suppression. And then, DOA is estimated by the signal and noise spatial steering vector, and adaptive beam-forming pattern is improved by weight vectors obtained from the spatial vector. Therefore, the improved directional estimation algorithm with regularizing sparsity constraints offers super-resolution and noise suppression compared to other algorithms.

In the environment of instant messengers, the recognition of human emotions and its automated representation with personalized 3D character animations facilitate the use of affectivity in the machine-based communication, which will contribute to enhanced communication. This paper describes an emotional messenger system developed for the automated recognition and expression of emotions for IPTVs (Internet Protocol televisions). Aiming for efficient delivery of users' emotions, we propose emotion estimation that assesses the affective contents of given textual messages, character animation that supports both 3D rendering and video playback, and smart phone-based input method. Demonstration and experiments validate the usefulness and performance of the proposed system.

The research on protein for the diseases analysis and the new medicines development is one of the most important themes in biotechnology. Since the analysis on diseases and protein needs to handle a large scale of data, we don't use the way to approach it by the experiments anymore. In recent, we have accelerated the research on diseases and protein analysis by sharing and connecting the various experimental data by combining the biotechnology with the IT technology. However, many biotechnology researchers have difficulty in handling the protein analysis tools based on the IT knowledge. In order to solve such problems, data analysis tools through the cooperation between IT researchers and biologists have been developed. However, the existing data analysis tools still have the problems that it is very hard for biologists to extend their functions and to use them. In this paper, we design and implement an effective analysis system for diseases and protein based on components that alleviates the problems of the existing data analysis systems.

Cho, Mi-Nam ; Ji, Yoo-Kang ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 70~76
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.070
This paper Extended ELZW(EBCDIC Lempel Ziv Welch) algorithm uses 2 byte prefix field for pointer of a table and 1 byte suffix field for repeat counter. where, a prefix field uses a pointer(index) of compression table and a suffix field uses a counter of overlapping or recursion text data in compression table. To increase compression ratio, after construction of compression table, table data are properly packed as different bit string in accordance with a alphabet, Hangeul, and pointer respectively. Therefore, proposed ELZW algorithm is superior to 1byte LZW algorithm as 5.22 percent and superior to 2byte LZW algorithm as 8.96 percent.

Recently, IT-based environment is changing rapidly as changing in web services platform, evolution of cloud computing environments and expanding the base of a smart market. Accordingly, monitoring development of environment is changing quickly. So a customizable SaaS-based monitoring tool is required to provide monitoring services. It has to support a variety of environmental monitoring and a resource managers with requested information, and by an enhanced monitoring framework in clouding environment of management system. In this paper, the 3D viewer for the management of sensor node management system was designed and built. Through the 3D viewer by enhancing the accessibility and visibility, the sensor network will allow resources to be used efficiently.
Improving Weak Classifiers by Using Discriminant Function in Selecting Threshold Values
Shyam, Adhikari ; Yoo, Hyeon-Joong ; Kim, Hyong-Suk ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 84~90
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.084
In this paper, we propose a quadratic discriminant analysis based approach for improving the discriminating strength of weak classifiers based on simple Haar-like features that were used in the Viola-Jones object detection framework. Viola and Jones built a strong classifier using a boosted ensemble of weak classifiers. However, their single threshold (or decision boundary) based weak classifier is sub-optimal and too weak for efficient discrimination between object class and background. A quadratic discriminant analysis based approach is presented which leads to hyper-quadric boundary between the object class and background class, thus realizing multiple thresholds based weak classifiers. Experiments carried out for car detection using 1000 positive and 3000 negative images for training, and 500 positive and 500 negative images for testing show that our method yields higher classification performance with fewer classifiers than single threshold based weak classifiers.

To understand the trip patterns of subway passengers is very important to making plans for an efficient subway system. Accordingly, there have been studies on mining and classifying useful patterns from large smart card transaction databases of the Metropolitan Seoul subway system. In this paper, we define a new classification of subway trip patterns and devise a classification algorithm for eleven trip patterns of the subway users from smart card transaction databases which have been produced about ten million transactions daily. We have implemented the algorithm and then applied it to one-day transaction database to classify the trip patterns of subway passengers. We have focused on the analysis of significant patterns such as round-trip patterns, commuter patterns, and unexpected interesting patterns. The distribution of the number of passengers in each trip pattern is plotted by the get-on time and get-off time of subway transactions, which illustrates the characteristics of the significant patterns.
Energy Efficient Cluster Event Detection Scheme using MBP in Wireless Sensor Networks
Kwon, Hyun-Ho ; Seong, Dong-Ook ; Yoo, Jae-Soo ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 101~108
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.101
Many works on energy-efficient cluster event detection schemes have been done considering the energy restriction of sensor networks. The existing cluster event detection schemes transmit only the boundary information of detected cluster event nodes to the base station. However, If the range of the cluster event is widened and the distribution density of sensor nodes is high, the existing cluster event detection schemes need high transmission costs due to the increase of sensor nodes located in the event boundary. In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient cluster event detection scheme using the minimum boundary polygons (MBP) that can compress and summarize the information of event boundary nodes. The proposed scheme represents the boundary information of cluster events using the MBP creation technique in the large scale of sensor network environments. In order to show the superiority of the proposed scheme, we compare it with the existing scheme through the performance evaluation. Simulation results show that our scheme maintains about 92% accuracy and decreases about 80% in energy consumption to detect the cluster event over the existing schemes on average.

Though the productivity increased by 50% as KBCT was the first to use ATC System in Korea, productivity is unlikely to be improved any longer because of unsatisfactory detailed automation technology development. Accordingly, the government embarked on 'high efficiency ATC technology development', but it is important to avoid overlapping with other advanced technology which is already developed, and to develop differentiated technology which has the way about it. To accomplish this, this paper suggested in-depth analysis about established domestic and overseas technologies, clear goal setting to achieve world-class level productivity, and rational development road map for success in technology development. Through this, as to the ATC automatization technology development, the ports of our country precedes in a competition with the ports of the neighboring country, and it will jump to the Northeast Asia Logistics-Hub-port and a role as growth engine for next-generation in our country will be played. In addition, the result of the technology development will become the standard of the performance evaluation of the relative technique of the domestic automated terminal, and will be leads the world in this field of technology.

Web development and digital technology enable users not only to consume contents but also to produce and share it through using various media. Thus, since personal needs for contents are increased, the interest in environment and technology for creating digital contents is growing. Because of existing digital contents technology such as writing tool or digital storyboard have focused on the individual creation, it is hard to induce participation and collaboration of other users and sharing and reusing contents. Therefore, we suggest a new form of collaborate digital storytelling using the concept of the collective intelligence through contest. Most of all, we develop writing tool and storyboard tool in order to facilitate participants to produce online contents. Also, distinguished from previous contest, this contest considers not only content output but also collaborative process for making it.

Smartphone used to be an it item for only business people and early adaptors. However, the public interest towards Smartphone has been rapidly increased and now is spreading to the everyday life in general people. Variety of applications are introduced and registered in a day, but there are not enough apps with simple and useable interface. This is because that the applications are developed only in a view from developer and designer to match the splendor design and technical skills of apps not concerning the users. Therefore this study will analyze the value in use and design trend of registered apps in apps store to recognize the importance in use and also to discuss about a plan to apply this into the apps more effectively. In order to improve the mobile app usability, this study suggest that using intuitional icon, designing easy to use app navigation. This will lead to produce clear instruction for app developers and designers with more reliable effects in the future of Smartphone world.

Naming Creation of Cultural Contents based on the Violation of Selectional Restrictions
Kim, Young-Do ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 10, issue 12, 2010, Pages 164~172
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2010.10.12.164
The purpose of this paper is to clarify the naming creation process of cultural contents based on the violation of selectional restrictions. This is to insist that the violation of selectional restrictions should be significantly considered as a mode of story planning and title naming in the cultural contents such as 'King and the Clown' and 'Ballerina Who Loves B-Boy'. This approach of selectional restrictions is based on the insistence of Chomsky's 'Aspects of the Theory of Syntax' in 1965. His idea had proposed that violation of linguistic rules affects the acceptability in the selectional properties of words and sentences. This focuses on the naming creation of cultural contents by widening his notion between selectional restrictions and the violation of selectional restrictions.

As the funeral service is on ritual of addressing death that is the final phase of life, it can be said to be the final stage of welfare service. It is developing into the stage of make-up, which reproduces the image of reality or expresses with the better appearance from the level of recovery technique, which restores the final form of the dead. This is caused by a request of the bereaved family with the aim of remembering the dead's final image with good looks. Methods, which are being changed by period, can be found in a record. As this funeral make-up is one field of special make-up, it is systematically made into proper application method along with the development in special materials. Thus, it will become one of the most important courses henceforth in our funeral culture available for beautifully decorating the dead's final image. In order to satisfy the request of the bereaved family, it is necessary to made floral decoration, casket cloth, and acoustic effect including the casket stage of worshipping the dead inside the funeral hall.

The competition for telecommunication-broadcasting bundle is under full steam. Even large mobile OS companies like Apple and Google are showing signs of moving into the telecom and broadcasting industry, and it is expected that competition for bundle will become even fiercer. In the light of this situation, this study will show which factors can heighten purchasing intention for bundle and lower expected-discounting rates, seeking its answer in the quality, satisfaction, and brand loyalty to core product.
