gaMUG

STREAMING TV :
Possible alternatives to cable and satellite TV.  What are the advantages
of and is there a downside to cutting that cable cord? Don Benne will
demonstrate how to turn a Mac into a DVR. He will bring several pieces
of equipment and show us ways to set up our own system.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SLUUG general

Economic Cyber-espionage.
This presentation is an overview of what we are seeing now regarding
countries stealing our intellectual property and proprietary information.
It will cover internet security, personal security, travel security,
social engineering, etc.

(And this the week after the Congress works on the new Intellectual
Property/Patent Law!)

Joseph J. Papes, is the Strategic Partnership Coordinator in the St. Louis
Division.  His background is that I am a retired FBI Supervisory Special
Agent with over 33 years experience working in the Counterintelligence
and Cyber fields.  He now works for the FBI as a consultant/contractor.
His job, as the Strategic Partnership is to conduct outreach/liaison
activities to the general business and academic communities of St. Louis
to help them protect their proprietary/intellectual property.

Computer Vision with OpenCV & Face Recognition

OpenCV - Open Source Computer vision - is a library of c/c++ functions for
real time compute vision.  OpenCV was originally developed by Intel and
is now supported by Willow Garage.  OpenCV can run on Linux/Windows/Mac
platforms.  One of the many built in features of OpenCV is face
detection. OpenCV also provides algorithms for facial recognition.
This presentation will briefly cover some OpenCV basics, then I'll show
how face detection and recognition can be performed using OpenCV's built
in functions.

My examples run on Ubuntu and are written in c.  Knowledge of image
processing is not necessary but some c/c++ experience will be helpful
to follow the examples.

The face detection algorithm that comes with OpenCV uses
Haar-like features.  Haar-like features can be used for object
recognition.  More information on Haar-like features can be
found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haar-like_features
http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/FaceDetection

The Face Recognition algorithm I will show is called Eigenface with
Principal Component Analysis.  Principal Component Analysis is a
technique used to remove noise from an image and extract values
representing the variance in a set of images.  These values can
be used to compute the distance between images.  Eigenface with
PCA is not the most accurate facial recognition approach, but it
is a good place to start since many Machine vision algorithms are
based on this technique.  More information on this topic can be
found here: http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/FaceRecognition
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eigenface

		Cosmology, Thermodynamics, and the Scientific Method by Dr.  Robert Criss, Wash U.  Cosmology
		is the study of the nature, structure, and evolution of the Universe at large.  Thermodynamics
		is the study of heat and its effects on matter and other forms of energy.  The Scientific Method
		is the basic problem-solving approach that underlies the amazing delivered by science in the
		past four hundred years.

		Dr.  Criss will use these three tools to pose and explore some of the great questions of science
		and philosophy.  Some examples: What is time, and how is the Universe evolving?  Is the Universe
		large but finite, or does it go on without limit?  What was the beginning of all things, and
		what might be the ending?  Robert Criss is a Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington
		University.  He uses precise measurements of stable atomic isotopes to probe the origin of rocks and
		natural waters.  His primary research interests include the study of contaminated substances through
		groundwater flows, the behavior of flood waters in the Meramec, Missouri, and Mississippi basins,
		the effects of human construction on river flows, and the circulation of water in deep hydrothermal
		systems.
