SIGCSE 2009 - RASQL Query Grammar Conversion Project

Abstract: While variety of language structures, there still exists room for an extensible grammatical structure based through the implementation of such a grammar, translations between languages can be made relatively easy using preexisting tools such as XSLT.


AudioVision Update

The quarter is ending and so is my current work on AudioVision. I have successfully managed to convert a basic two camera view into stereophonic 3d audio, using OpenCV (C++). I hope to continue this work some time in the future, so keep an eye out here for any future developments.


End - Graffiti

I submitted “Graffiti” for the End challenge at DPChallenge. I cam in 94 out of 145 with a score of 4.74 / 10. I think I may have over done the contrast on the shot, but it still turned out to be pretty interesting.

Silence II - Lonely Winter Night

I submitted “Lonely Winter Night” for the Silence II challenge at DPChallenge. I came in 110 out of 177 with a score of 4.96 / 10. So far this is my best result at DPChallenge. I think that I may have over done the softening on the shot, but I still think it was a cool effect.

Since deciding that I cannot use MATLAB because of the additional addons necessary to use webcams, I have been deciding between C# and Python as the next language to try. I’ve settled on Python for the time being, using VideoCapture to connect to the webcams and Numpy to process the data. It turns out that Python + VideoCapture + Numpy is actually rather similar in functionality and syntax to MATLAB with its image processing library.
