IEEE Trans. ITS paper published

My paper on an image-based traffic estimation method has just been published. Let me cite a part of my email sent to the project members and managers:

It’s been more than five years since we started this project in Japan. When Katsuki-san, a new hire at TRL at that time, started looking at traffic images at, no one imagined that this project would receive global attention in a year or so. It was way before IBM started the extensive campaign on Cognitive Computing. I’m glad to see that this project has become one of the major activities at Africa Lab. It was one of the most exciting projects in my life.

In the project page, you can find some more information on the project.

KAIS paper just published

My paper on questionnaire data analysis has just come out. This paper is the first paper to propose an supervised extension of the Item Response Theory, which is an interesting probabilistic model developed in the area of psychometrics.
