FAYETTEVILLE, Ark -- The following information was released by the University of Arkansas:

Eguchi publishes in UA's Inquiry Journal of Undergraduate Research.

Akihiro Eguchi published his recent paper "Object Recognition Based on Shape and Function: Inspired by Children's Word Acquisition" in University of Arkansas' Inquiry Journal of Undergraduate Research, which is now available on the web:  http://inquiry.uark.edu.   Eguchi's paper uses the Microsoft Kinect to recognize common objects and common gestures (form and function) and finds that, for object recognition by computer, both kinds of evidence taken together are better than either taken alone.
