    • Obfuscating the topical intention in enterprise text search 

      Pang, Hwee Hwa; Xiao, Xiaokui; Shen, Jiali (2012)
      The text search queries in an enterprise can reveal the users' topic of interest, and in turn confidential staff or business information. To safeguard the enterprise from consequences arising from a disclosure of the query ...
    • Obfuscation and watermarking of FPGA designs based on constant value generators 

      Sergeichik, Vladimir V.; Ivaniuk, Alexander A.; Chang, Chip-Hong (2014)
      Obfuscation is a technique which makes design less intelligible in order to prevent or increase reverse engineering effort. In this paper, a new approach to hardware obfuscation by inserting constant value generators (CVGs) ...

    • Object detection in a maritime environment : performance evaluation of background subtraction methods 

      Prasad, Dilip Kumar; Prasath, Chandrashekar Krishna; Rajan, Deepu; Rachmawati, Lily; Rajabally, Eshan; Quek, Chai (2018)
      This paper provides a benchmark of the performance of 23 classical and state-of-the-art background subtraction (BS) algorithms on visible range and near infrared range videos in the Singapore Maritime dataset. Importantly, ...
    • Object individuation and physical reasoning in infancy : an integrative account 

      Baillargeon, Renée; Stavans, Maayan; Wu, Di; Gertner, Yael; Setoh, Peipei; Kittredge, Audrey K.; Bernard, Amélie (2012)
      Much of the research on object individuation in infancy has used a task in which two different objects emerge in alternation from behind a large screen, which is then removed to reveal either one or two objects. In their ...
    • Object recognition by discriminative combinations of line segments, ellipses, and appearance features 

      Chia, Alex Yong Sang; Rajan, Deepu; Leung, Maylor Karhang; Rahardja, Susanto (2012)
      We present a novel contour-based approach that recognizes object classes in real-world scenes using simple and generic shape primitives of line segments and ellipses. Compared to commonly used contour fragment features, ...
