  Title BPM and requirements elicitation at multiple levels of abstraction: A review Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication IADIS International Conference on Information Systems 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 237-242  
  Keywords Business process modeling, levels of abstraction, requirements elicitation, requirements modeling, review  
  Abstract (up) Business process models can be useful for requirements elicitation, among other things. Software development depends on the quality of the requirements elicitation activities, and so adequately modeling business processes (BPs) is critical. A key factor in achieving this is the active participation of all the stakeholders in the development of a shared vision of BPs.

Unfortunately, organizations often find themselves left with inconsistent BPs that do not cover all the stakeholders’ needs

and constraints. However, consolidation of the various stakeholder requirements may be facilitated through the use of multiple levels of abstraction (MLA). This article contributes to the research into MLA use in business process modeling (BPM) for software requirements by reviewing the theoretical foundations of MLA and their use in various BP-oriented approaches.

  Title Image patch similarity through a meta-learning metric based approach Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication 15th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems (SITIS 2019); Sorrento, Italia Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 511-517  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) Comparing images regions are one of the core methods used on computer vision for tasks like image classification, scene understanding, object detection and recognition. Hence, this paper proposes a novel approach to determine similarity of image regions (patches), in order to obtain the best representation of image patches. This problem has been studied by many researchers presenting different approaches, however, the ability to find the better criteria to measure the similarity on image regions are still a challenge. The present work tackles this problem using a few-shot metric based meta-learning framework able to compare image regions and determining a similarity measure to decide if there is similarity between the compared patches. Our model is training end-to-end from scratch. Experimental results

have shown that the proposed approach effectively estimates the similarity of the patches and, comparing it with the state of the art approaches, shows better results.

  Title Computer vision for image understanding. A comprehensive review Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication International Conference on Advances in Emerging Trends and Technologies (ICAETT 2019); Quito, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 248-259  
  Keywords  
  Abstract (up) Computer Vision has its own Turing test: Can a machine describe the contents of an image or a video in the way a human being would do? In this paper, the progress of Deep Learning for image recognition is analyzed in order to know the answer to this question. In recent years, Deep Learning has increased considerably the precision rate of many tasks related to computer vision. Many datasets of labeled images are now available online, which leads to pre-trained models for many computer vision applications. In this work, we gather information of the latest techniques to perform image understanding and description. As a conclusion we obtained that the combination of Natural Language Processing (using Recurrent Neural Networks and Long Short-Term Memory) plus Image Understanding (using Convolutional Neural Networks) could bring new types of powerful and useful applications in which the computer will be able to answer questions about the content of images and videos. In order to build datasets of labeled images, we need a lot of work and most of the datasets are built using crowd work. These new applications have the potential to increase the human machine interaction to new levels of usability and user’s satisfaction.

  Keywords Rehabilitation; RGB-D Sensor; Computer Vision; Upper limb  
  Abstract (up) Comúnmente durante la rehabilitación física, el diagnóstico dado por el especialista se basa en observaciones cualitativas que sugieren, en algunos casos, conclusiones subjetivas. El presente trabajo propone un enfoque cuantitativo, orientado a servir de ayuda a fisioterapeutas, a través de una herramienta interactiva y de bajo costo que permite medir los movimientos de miembros superiores. Estos movimientos son capturados por un sensor RGB-D y procesados mediante la metodología propuesta, dando como resultado una eficiente representación de movimientos, permitiendo la evaluación cuantitativa de movimientos de los miembros superiores.

  Title Fast CNN Stereo Depth Estimation through Embedded GPU Devices Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Sensors 2020 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Vol. 2020-June Issue 11 Pages pp. 1-13  
  Keywords stereo matching; deep learning; embedded GPU  
  Abstract (up) Current CNN-based stereo depth estimation models can barely run under real-time

constraints on embedded graphic processing unit (GPU) devices. Moreover, state-of-the-art

evaluations usually do not consider model optimization techniques, being that it is unknown what is

the current potential on embedded GPU devices. In this work, we evaluate two state-of-the-art models

on three different embedded GPU devices, with and without optimization methods, presenting

performance results that illustrate the actual capabilities of embedded GPU devices for stereo depth

estimation. More importantly, based on our evaluation, we propose the use of a U-Net like architecture

for postprocessing the cost-volume, instead of a typical sequence of 3D convolutions, drastically

augmenting the runtime speed of current models. In our experiments, we achieve real-time inference

speed, in the range of 5–32 ms, for 1216  368 input stereo images on the Jetson TX2, Jetson Xavier,

and Jetson Nano embedded devices.

By reviewing a total of 80 studies reported from 2016 to 2020, the present article evaluates the application of software engineering to the field

of intelligent image processing systems, it also offers insights about aspects related to distributed computing for this type of systems. Results indicate that several topics of software engineering are mostly applied when academics are involved in developing projects associated to this kind of intelligent systems. The findings provide evidences that Apache Spark is the most

utilized distributed computing framework for image processing. In addition, Tensorflow is a popular framework used to build convolutional neural networks, which are the prevailing deep learning algorithms used in intelligent image processing systems.

Also, among big cloud providers, Amazon Web Services is the preferred computing platform across the industry sectors, followed by Google cloud.
