Brain-Computer Interfaces

- Until recently, our relationship with technology has been limited to physical and direct command. To get a device to take action, you must touch it, or speak to it. All of this could change with this new technology called, brain-computer interfaces. This amazing technology will not only revamp military applications, but most importantly help the medical community substantially. It brings the possibility of sound to the deaf, sight to the blind and movement to the physically challenged....   [tags: Brain-Computer Interface]

Graphical User Interfaces

- Modern society heavily depends on the abilities of computers, Information Technology, and information processing. As such, since access to information occurs mainly through digital means and media, the way information is arranged and presented on the screen is crucial. Because of this need for fast access and easy arrangement arose, in the early 1980s, companies started to work on various graphical user interfaces (or GUI for short). Most dictionaries define a GUI as ‘a way of arranging information on a computer screen that is easy to understand and use because it uses icons, menus and a mouse rather than only text.’ Introducing such software allowed a human-computer interaction on a visual...   [tags: Information Technology ]

Achieving Common Grounds in Communication 3 Via Interfaces: A Role of Spatial Frames for Reference

- Abstract The current paper argues for synchronising spatial frames of reference for achieving effective multiparty communication in collaborative virtual environments. Synchronising nonverbal behaviour from different modalities is an important step for simulating face-to-face-interaction where all nonverbal cues are available. Such synchronisation also serves as an effective basis for building multimodal interfaces especially if these have to be deployed for multiparty communication. It is argued that common spatial reference frames are helpful in coordinating different points of attention and facilitating work by serving as the springboard for joint attention among members of the team....   [tags: Math]

Micromechanical Modelling of Fiber Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites Subjected to Tensile Loading

- 1. INTRODUCTION Many innovations in aerospace and transportation industries depend on high-performance structural materials. Metal-matrix composites (MMCs) have received considerable attention due to their superior physical, mechanical and thermomechanical properties as compared to those of most conventional materials. MMCs offer a high specific strength, stiffness and wear resistance, that is much higher than that of monolithic materials. They are also capable to survive higher temperature environments....   [tags: strength, stress, structural]

Networks: An Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol

- An Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol is the most used interior gateway protocol and computation intensive protocol where energy consumption in Internet Protocol (IP) networks is the main concern. The energy in an IP network can be saved by allowing a subset of IP router interfaces on sleep mode setting during the low traffic hours through the model of “move” by dint of an Energy Aware Routing (EAR) strategy, which is completely compatible with OSPF and is based on the “Shortest Path Tree (SPT) exportation” techinque or “Dijkstra's Algorithm”....   [tags: computation, gateway protocol]

Concerns about Cognitive Enhancements

- At around 410 BCE, Socrates denounced literacy, believing that the seeming permanence of the recorded word would trick youth into believing that they had found knowledge. Socrates believed that true knowledge came from experiences alone. However, centuries later, humanity has found itself enhanced by literacy, allowing for the recording of thoughts and the communication of them without the need for the author to be present. Historical records have shown that humans are not born with the ability to read; we enhance ourselves by taking advantage of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to modify itself based on which neurons are activated....   [tags: extensions of mental capacities]

One Physical Server Running Several Virtual Servers: Virtualization

- Introduction:- The idea of virtualization is by and large accepted to have its roots in the mainframe days in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when IBM contributed a ton of time and exertion in creating powerful time-imparting results. Time-imparting alludes to the imparted utilization of machine assets around a huge aggregation of clients, intending to expand the effectiveness of both the clients and the exorbitant workstation assets they impart. This model spoke to a real leap forward in workstation engineering: the expense of giving registering capacity dropped respectably and it got workable for associations, and even people, to utilize a machine without really owning one....   [tags: server farms, computer technology]

The Roles of Spacer Grids

- In a nuclear reactor core, fuel rods are supported by grid structures referred to as spacer grids. These spacer grids provide support to the fuel rods maintaining them at a fixed distance from each other, reducing the vibrations that would occur if the rods were not supported. As one of the major flow obstructions in the core, spacer grids have been found to affect the coolant flow hydrodynamics and heat transfer characteristics. There have been studies in regards to a single phase coolant traveling along the fuel rods and through the spacer grids; Mizutani et al (2007), Zhang (2008), however there is a need for enhanced information of what occurs when two phases travel through the spacer gr...   [tags: nuclear, heat transfer, thermal-hydraulic]
