      The aim of the SWIFT project is to determine which visualisations of blood glucose-related data on mobile devices are most usable by people with insulin-dependent diabetes, to improve self-management.
    • A Statistical Method for Surface Detection 

      Smith, Samuel; Williams, Ian (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
      This work presents a new method for 3D surface detection using a statistical dual-region filter. The method improves over traditional 3D surface detection techniques by resolving interfaces between different stochastic ...
