Abstract: This paper presents a comparative evaluation of classical feature point descriptors when they are used in the long-wave infrared spectral band. Robustness to changes in rotation, scaling, blur, and additive noise are evaluated using a state of the art framework. Statistical results using an outdoor image data set are presented together with a discussion about the differences with respect to the results obtained when images from the visible spectrum are considered.

Abstract: Durante los últimos años ha existido un fuerte incremento en el acceso a internet, causando que los centros de datos ( DC) deban adaptar dinámicamente su infraestructura de red de cara a enfrentar posibles problemas de congestión, la cual no siempre se da de forma oportuna. Ante esto, nuevas topologías de red se han propuesto en los últimos años, como una forma de brindar mejores condiciones para el manejo de tráfico interno, sin embargo es común que para el estudio de estas mejoras, se necesite recrear el comportamiento de un verdadero DC en modelos de simulación/emulación. Por lo tanto se vuelve esencial validar dichos modelos, de cara a obtener resultados coherentes con la realidad. Esta validación es posible por medio de la identificación de ciertas propiedades que se deducen a partir de las variables y los parámetros que describen la red, y que se mantienen en las topologías de los DC para diversos escenarios y/o configuraciones. Estas propiedades, conocidas como invariantes, son una expresión del funcionamiento de la red en ambientes reales, como por ejemplo la ruta más larga entre dos nodos o el número de enlaces mínimo que deben fallar antes de una pérdida de conectividad en alguno de los nodos de la red. En el presente trabajo se realiza la identificación, formulación y comprobación de dos invariantes para la topología Fat-Tree, utilizando como software emulador a mininet. Las conclusiones muestran resultados concordantes entre lo analítico y lo práctico.

Visual Metrics for Educational Videogames Linked to Socially Assistive Robots in an Inclusive Education Framework. In Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies. International Conference in Information Technology & Education (ICITED 21), julio 15-17 (Vol. 256, pp. 119–132).
Abstract: In gamification, the development of "visual metrics for educational
video games linked to social assistance robots in the framework of inclusive education" seeks to provide support, not only to regular children but also to children with specific psychosocial disabilities, such as those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, personalizing each child's experiences represents a limitation, especially for those with atypical behaviors. 'LOLY,' a social assistance robot, works together with mobile applications associated with the family of educational video game series called 'MIDI-AM,' forming a social robotic platform. This platform offers the user curricular digital content to reinforce the teaching-learning processes and motivate regular children and those with ASD. In the present study, technical, programmatic experiments and focus groups were carried out, using open-source facial recognition algorithms to monitor and evaluate the degree of user attention throughout the interaction. The objective is to evaluate the management of a social robot linked to educational video games
through established metrics, which allow monitoring the user's facial expressions
during its use and define a scenario that ensures consistency in the results for its applicability in therapies and reinforcement in the teaching process, mainly
adaptable for inclusive early childhood education.

In ETLTC – ACM Chapter: International Conference on Educational Technology, Language and Technical Communication; Fukushima, Japan, 27-31 Enero 2020 (Vol. 77).
Abstract: This paper explains how Natural Language (NL) processing by computers, through smart
programs as a way of Machine Learning (ML), can represent large sets of quantitative data as written
statements. The study recognized the need to improve the implemented web platform using a
dashboard in which we collected a set of extensive data to measure assessment factors of using
children´s educational games. In this case, applying NL is a strategy to give assessments, build, and
display more precise written statements to enhance the understanding of children´s gaming behavior.
We propose the development of a new tool to assess the use of written explanations rather than a
statistical representation of feedback information for the comprehension of parents and teachers with
a lack of primary level knowledge in statistics. Applying fuzzy logic theory, we present verbatim
explanations of children´s behavior playing educational videogames as NL interpretation instead of
statistical representations. An educational series of digital game applications for mobile devices,
identified as MIDI (Spanish acronym of “Interactive Didactic Multimedia for Children”) linked to a
dashboard in the cloud, is evaluated using the dashboard metrics. MIDI games tested in local primary
schools helps to evaluate the results of using the proposed tool. The guiding results allow analyzing
the degrees of playability and usability factors obtained from the data produced when children play a
MIDI game. The results obtained are presented in a comprehensive guiding evaluation report
applying NL for parents and teachers. These guiding evaluations are useful to enhance children's
learning understanding related to the school curricula applied to ludic digital games.

Abstract: This manuscript addresses the cross-spectral stereo correspondence problem. It proposes the usage of a dense flow field based representation instead of the original cross-spectral images, which have a low correlation. In this way, working in the flow field space, classical cost functions can be used as similarity measures. Preliminary experimental results on urban environments have been obtained showing the validity of the proposed approach.

Abstract: The authors present a model-free policy-based reinforcement learning
model that introduces perturbations on the pattern of a metasurface.
The objective is to learn a policy that changes the size of the
patches, and therefore the impedance in the sides of an artificially structured
material. The proposed iterative model assigns the highest reward
when the patch sizes allow the transmission along a constrained path
and penalties when the patch sizes make the surface wave radiate to
the sides of the metamaterial. After convergence, the proposed
model learns an optimal patch pattern that achieves lateral confinement
along the metasurface. Simulation results show that the proposed
learned-pattern can effectively guide the electromagnetic wave
through a metasurface, maintaining its instantaneous eigenstate when
the homogeneity is perturbed. Moreover, the pattern learned to
prevent reflections by changing the patch sizes adiabatically. The
reflection coefficient S1, 2 shows that most of the power gets transferred
from the source to the destination with the proposed design.

Abstract: How is software measurement addressed in undergraduate and graduate programs in universities? Do organizations consider that the graduating students they hire have an adequate knowledge of software measurement? To answer these and related questions, a survey was administered to participants who attended the IWSM-MENSURA 2010 conference in Stuttgart, Germany. Forty-seven of the 69 conference participants (including software development practitioners, software measurement consultants, university professors, and graduate students) took part in the survey. The results indicate that software measurement topics are: A) covered mostly at the graduate level and not at the undergraduate level, and B) not mandatory. Graduate students and professors consider that, of the measurement topics covered in university curricula, specific topics, such as measures for the requirements phase, and measurement techniques and tools, receive more attention in the academic context. A common observation of the practitioners who participated in the survey was that students hired as new employees bring limited software measurement-related knowledge to their organizations. Discussion of the findings and directions for future research are presented.
