GUI Design and Research Synopsis
This chapter presents an overall summary of the research work described in all the previous chapters. We begin the chapter with a detailed discussion on the design of a Graphical User Interface (GUI). In the next section, we present a synopsis of our research. The synopsis provides a global perspective for our research and emphasizes its interdisciplinary nature. We show how various techniques from graph theory and statistics can be brought to bear on solution of certain critical problems in the realm of virtual craniofacial surgery. Then, we show that in the process of tackling these critical problems in virtual craniofacial surgery, we have, in fact, addressed some generic and fundamental problems in computer vision and pattern recognition. In the final section, we outline some general problems in the field of virtual craniofacial surgery that need to be tackled in future. Note that each of the previous chapters has concluded with a section outlining future research directions. However, in those sections, we discussed the future work from a relatively narrow perspective of the specific problem being dealt with in that chapter. In contrast, in the final section of this chapter, we provide the reader a more holistic view of future research directions.
