Washington Times Features Alex O. Vasilescu
March 2004

Alex O. Vasilescu was interviewed for the Washington Times' article, 'Walking Signatures.' Vasilescu's research includes facial recognition "TensorFaces: Multilinear Tensor Decomposition of Image Ensembles" and Human Motion Signatures. The Washington Times writes:
"Gait patterns... are based on being able similarly to extract and analyze characteristics of movement patterns. "
They quote Vasilescu as saying:
'"I wanted to extract an individual's personal style and the explicit manner in which they move in a way that translates across different motions and is consistent,"
They go on to say,
"Her initial interest grew out of a common observation that friends often recognize one another at a distance by shape or movement alone before it's possible to see the face. She wondered, she says, if she could teach a computer to perform in the same way."

Zooming Spaces and FDNY Collaboration Featured on CBS News
January 2004

CBS Nightly News ran a story on the development of wireless command boards for the New York City Fire Department using CAT Zooming software. Researchers at the NYU CAT have been working with FDNY officials to develop an architecture and prototype for the system for several months. The new software will save lives by allowing seemless sharing of immediate information in emergency situations in real time. The system will also make schematics and floor plans of the entire city available to firefighters at the touch of a screen.

The Whitney Features Ken Perlin's Java Programs on ArtPort
January 2004

The reknowned Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC is currently featuring Ken Perlin's Java programs on the ArtPort section of their online exhibits. SEE THE EXHIBIT HERE.

The Whitney says: "[Ken Perlin] marvels that Leonardo Da Vinci's Lester Codex was recently presented in New York City as 'science' at the Museum of Natural History, yet as 'art' at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: two cultures, divided by Central Park. He looks forward to the day when all children will grow up learning how to express their ideas procedurally, as a birthright of 21st century literacy. And show their source code."
