Our objectives are to research, develop, test, and implement:

1. New yield curve construction and smoothing algorithms and improvements to standard curve construction algorithms, in particular, that are better adapted to illiquid markets such as Mexico, Israel, etc. 2. We seek fully automated real-time curve construction algorithms, which will allow for traders to use and data vendors to provide curves evolving in real time.

TRA(P) – A Language for Describing Motion in 2d Contemporary Art

Program: Accelerate

University: Simon Fraser University

Discipline: Interactive arts and technology

Partner: Farmboy Fine Arts Inc.

Sector: Digital media

Intern: 
Nathan Sorenson
Faculty Supervisor: 
Steve DiPaola

The internship will investigate existing techniques and languages to analyze, describe and visualize  motion, movement or flow characteristics in a number of different fields and application areas including optical flow for video and visual effects, and Laban Motion Analysis for physical movement. The goal is to draw on existing approaches to define a language to describe motion in 2D art images, and for the purpose of manipulating images to better suit different compositions and spatial layouts.
