    Summary We have to develop an adaptive thresholding system for greyscale image binarisation. The simplest way to use image binarisation is to choose a threshold value, and classify all pixels with values above this threshold value as white and all other pixels as black. Thresholding essentially involves turning a colour or greyscale image into a 1-bit binary image. If, say, the left half of an image had a lower brightness range than the right half, we make use of Adaptive Thresholding. Global thresholding

    Much like taking pictures on Earth, astronomers have to deal with many issues with distortion when it comes to taking images. The solution to this issue is a technology called adaptive optics (often referred to as AO), which was originally used to improve the performance of optical systems on ground based telescopes. [1] Adaptive optics are made up of mirrors, that can be reshaped that are controlled by computers. These mirrors fix the distortion caused by the turbulence of the Earth’s atmosphere. This

    ATRAC: Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding for MiniDisc Abstract -------- ATRAC is an audio coding system based on psychoacoustic principles. The input signal is divided into three subbands which are then transformed into the frequency domain using a variable block length. Transform coefficients are grouped into nonuniform bands to reflect the human auditory system, and then quantized on the basis of dynamic sensitivity and masking characteristics. ATRAC compresses compact disc audio

    comprised of two responses: the adaptive immune response and the innate immune response. The first line of defence against invading organisms is classified as the innate immune response and the second line of defence and protection against re- exposure to the same pathogen is known as the adaptive immune response. Innate immune responses are known as the non-specific manner which composes the cells and defend the host from infection by other organism by mechanism. The adaptive immunity represents the antigen-specific
