  • Cognitive science meets computing science: The future of cognitive systems and cognitive engineering

    We stand at the threshold of a dramatic and exciting new time in humanity's development. As irreplaceable physical resources inevitably dwindle, we shall increasingly come to rely much more on cognitive resources that consume less and less energy. (Here, I define cognitive resources as those resources that support and facilitate human cognition, ideally in intelligent ways). In this keynote address, I report on a programme of research conducted at my research centre and by my colleagues in their own universities. I also consider the potential development of current research trends for now and the future. View full abstract»

  • The future European Grid Infrastructure — Roadmap and challenges

    In many research domains, support from computing technology is seen as a major tool for obtaining scientific breakthroughs. This involves many different kinds of technologies from networking, supercomputing and storage technologies often provided within so-called e-infrastructures. At present, Europe is preparing the next step in consolidation of its e-infrastructures. This concerns particularly the initiation of the European grid infrastructure as a permanent and sustainable grid for all sciences. It is expected that the provisioning of an always-available and always-on grid would be beneficial for many applications. These benefits have been demonstrated in many grid projects in Europe and abroad, and there is potential for grids emerging in many other application domains as well. View full abstract»

  • What an Information System is, and why is it important to know this

    There are many different views on what the term information systems means. This paper provides a simple explanation of what an information system is in practice to assist in clarifying the confusion. If this simple explanation were widely understood, then current difficulties with information systems development, practical problems with ongoing information systems, the applicability of much information system's research, and a general lack of awareness of the potential for the academic study of information systems, could all be improved upon. The description of what a practical information system turns out to be is given, and the reasons why its major features exist and are important are discussed. Implications arising from the acceptance of this definition are offered. View full abstract»

  • Feature set extension for heart rate variability analysis by using non-linear, statistical and geometric measures

    The goal of this paper is to evaluate the application of a combination of heart rate variability features on successful classification of known heart disorders. We propose an extension over our previous work, which employs 11 features, both from non-linear and linear analysis of heart rate variability. The features were extracted from electrocardiogram recordings and analyzed in Weka system for data mining using several well-known classification algorithms: C4.5 decision tree, Bayesian network, random forest, and RIPPER rules. Significance of each feature is analyzed and the algorithms' success rates are compared. The selected combination of features has a high classification potential. View full abstract»

    The new method for assessment of interpersonal and inter parameter concatenation during monitoring of vital signals has been developed. Assessment of inter parameter concatenation permitted to reveal some new features of heart functionality when ECG monitoring was performed during various situations. Proposed method and values of concatenation between various processes could serve as indicators of human functional state and also could be applied for assessment of interpersonal functional concatenation.

  • Java's alternatives and the limitations of Java when writing cross-platform applications for mobile devices in the medical domain

    In this paper we discuss alternatives to Java ME when writing medical applications for mobile devices across multiple platforms. The Java virtual machine, which runs Java programs, is not available for the majority of handheld devices, such as palm PDAs, Windows Mobile based devices, or the Apple iPhone. As well as this, we conclude that full GUI interaction, such as the interaction provided by Java programs, is not an absolute requirement to make a program useful, and we developed an HTML-based medical information application to illustrate this. This program displays various sample patient parameters to the user in graph form, and was tested on multiple platforms and operating systems to demonstrate its platform/OS independence and usefulness.

  • Medical image fusion based on discrete wavelet transform using Java technology

    The importance of information offered by the medical images for diagnosis support can be increased by combining images from different compatible medical devices. The fusion process allows combination of salient feature of these images. In this paper we present different techniques of image fusion, our work for medical image fusion based on discrete wavelet transform and how we understand to integrate this process into a distributed application. The dedicated application considers Java technology for using its facilities as a future development, regarding a remote access mechanism. View full abstract»
