Markov-Airy method for electromagnetic fields in layered structures and microsphere-stabilized planar resonators (2015-09-11)In this work, a new technique to calculate the behavior of electromagnetic fields in layered structures is presented. Based upon keeping track of reflections throughout the structure, this technique is a special case of ...
Brain-machine interface coupled cognitive sensory fusion with a Kohonen and reservoir computing scheme (2015-12-04)Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a source of great intrigue and has spawned many questions regarding the human condition and the core of what it means to be a sentient entity. The field has bifurcated into so-called ...
(2015-11-24)Optical techniques have garnered increasing interest in biomedical research. As the types of optical probes available continue to expand, the appeal of experiments utilizing multiple probes simultaneously grows rapidly. ...
Video-analysis inference automated ECG (VID-ECG): improving video-based heart rate detection and exposing security risks of ECG-based biometric authentication (2015-11-30)Many recent biometric authentication methods using heart signals in the form of ECG and its components have been proposed to be used as a unique security key for body area networks (BANs) to authenticate individuals ...
(2015-11-24)Growing computational demand and proliferation of cloud computing has placed high-speed serial links at the center stage. Due to saturating energy efficiency improvements over the last five years, increasing the data ...
