Category: media > books | Merchant: Walmart US Welcome to the world's most effective method of learning Mandarin This widely-acclaimed series continues to impress and inspire learners whether they're studying Chinese on their own, or in a classroom setting."Intermediate Spoken Chinese" and the corresponding Practice Essentials allow you to experience real-life situations in different Mandarin-speaking locales. Each of the common situations explored here-from shopping at a market to playing unexpected phone tag-is one you're most likely to encounter as you interact with Chinese speakers. The breakthrough foundation of these books is that you don't need to know the characters in order to speak Chinese. This series provides separate "tracks" to help you master the skills of speaking and writing Chinese at your own pace. Some learners place greater emphasis on reading and writing, while others focus on developing a knowledge of spoken Chinese first, and then learn the characters. Both approaches are perfectly valid, and the one you adopt will depend on your personal goals and the amount of time you have for weekly study. This series allows you total flexibility in this regard. An accompanying software program contains 56 videos shot on location. The software allows students to interact with the videos in various ways: to select/replay specific passages; to view the dialogues in Hanyu Pinyin, Simplified or Traditional characters as each line is spoken; and to mute a particular speaker's audio Additional key features of "Intermediate Spoken Chinese" Clear and detailed explanations of natural, colloquial Chinese pronunciation, grammar and usage Recommended strategies to help you learn to speak Chinese more efficiently Videos teach you real-life Chinese, the actual speaking styles of Chinese people in various parts of mainland China as well as Taiwan, Macao, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia Notes on Chinese culture and society allow you to understand situational etiquette Discussions of challenges faced by English

Audio-Visual Person Tracking: A Practical Approach

Audio-Visual Person Tracking: A Practical Approach

View Product

Category: media > books | Merchant: Walmart US UPC: 9781848165816
This book deals with the creation of the algorithm backbone that enables a computer to perceive humans in a monitored space, by processing the signals that humans use in order to perform a task, i.e, audio and video. To do so, computers use sensors and algorithms to detect and track multiple interacting humans, by way of their faces and hands or their voices. This application domain is challenging, because audio and visual signals are cluttered by both background and foreground objects. After establishing particle filtering as the framework for tracking, audio, visual and also audiovisual tracking are then explained. Each method is analyzed, starting with sensor configurations, detection for tracker initialization and the trackers themselves. Techniques to fuse the modalities are then considered. Instead of offering a monolithic approach to the tracking problem, this book also focuses on implementation by providing MATLAB code for every presented component. This way, the reader can connect every presented concept with a corresponding piece of code that follows immediately after the theory. Finally, the applications of the various tracking systems in different domains are studied and considered.
