Enhanced Ambient Light for Television
Presenter: Radhika Kannan
Affiliation: NetApp

Abstract:
Ambilight technology emits colored backlight around the television to enhance viewing experience, the emitted color being derived from the dominant color on the display. In this paper, we propose that in order to provide more flexibility, characteristics of light may be encoded in the audio video stream itself to control lighting elements associated with the television, to enhance immersive viewing experience beyond ordinary. Such stream-based encoding paves way for futuristic entertainment.

Interactive Computing Optimization using iSHARP (interactive System Health Allocation and Resource Productivity) Indicator
Presenter: Sharmila Raman
Affiliation: Intel Technology India Pvt Ltd

Abstract:
Intel uses large distributed collections of computers in order to process microprocessor design and related tasks. As designs complexity grows, amount of compute cycles required can grow geometrically. Cost of buying new computers not just results in direct Hardware costs but also grows with datacenter space, cooling, power, carbon emissions. The objective of iSHARP was to optimize existing resources usage while eliminating unnecessary resources which contributes overall cost and carbon footprint.

Swath-Based Skew Correction
Presenter: Vandana Roy
Affiliation: Hewlett Packard

Abstract:
This paper proposes a method for robust embedded skew detection and correction along with frame removal which work on horizontal image stripes. The detected page can accurately predict skew remove frame without loss of any content in a progressive manner, enabling efficient pipeline based processing. Upon accurate skew detection, rows of the image are rotated. This enables the document to be printed, even as the remaining document is being scanned.
