  1. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...

  2. Large-scale Entity Linking and Disambiguation with DeepDive

    SBC: CLEARCUT ANALYTICS, INC            Topic: N16AT016

    DeepDive is a system for extracting relational databases from dark data: the mass of text, tables, and images that are widely collected and stored but which cannot be exploited by standard relational tools. If the information in dark data --- scientific papers, Web classified ads, customer service notes, and so on --- were instead in a relational database, it would give analysts access to a massiv ...
