A Physical Model for Widespread Near-Surface and Fault Zone Damage Induced by Earthquakes - Seismic observations indicate that material velocities at shallow depths decrease over a large area after large earthquakes. The reductions are widespread, and occur at distances of up to several source dimensions. A persistent low-velocity fault zone has also been documented extensively from seismic and geodetic observations, in which the velocity drops further after large earthquakes. Dynamic...

New software interfaces for image collections

submitted by: jiagu

The project objective is to design a new interface that maximizes usability of digital image collections based off current methods utilized in sites such as ArtStor, Flickr, Panoramio.

A Distributed Acoustic Localization System using Clusters of Microphones.

submitted by: vishal.k

There currently are systems that can determine with relative accuracy the source of a sound, but these systems rely on a central unit to process all necessary calculations. The goal of my project is to explore a distributive method which generates vectors and computes the location cooperatively among all the clusters, and compare it to the centralized method in existence.

A Game-Based Approach for Collecting Semantic Music Annotations

submitted by: LukeThivierge

To create a collection of online games to generate significant amounts of high-quality semantic labels that will be used to organize, search, recommend, retrieve and describe huge - and growing - music collections. Imagine an extensive music database like Pandora where you can search for music by describing it like "fast tempo with bagpipes, distorted guitar, and multi-part vocal harmonies" or "eerie Halloween music on a synthesizer."
