    Software radios have emerged in recent years, providing a level of programmability so that communications products, such as cell phones, can automatically switch from one frequency or transmission scheme to another when the primary technique is unavailable. Now that they are moving into the marketplace, a few long-term planners are already looking at the second or third generation of software radi... View full abstract»

    Fully realizing the Semantic Web vision will require practical tools. We believe that DAMLJessKB is one such tool. As more and more Web sites, network services, databases, and knowledge bases look to DAML as a de facto representation syntax, we hope that DAMLJessKB will become one in a suite of tools that let users truly leverage the shared semantics.

    If we engineer complex cognitive systems on the basis of mistaken or inappropriate view's of cognition, we can wind up designing systems that degrade performance rather than improve it. The results stemming from the application of any cognitive systems engineering methodology will be incomplete unless they include a description of the cognition that is needed to accomplish the work. The concept of... View full abstract»

    A component-based approach to visual object recognition rooted in supervised learning allows for a vision system that is more robust against changes in an object's pose or illumination. Learning figures prominently in the study of visual systems from the viewpoints of visual neuroscience and computer vision. Whereas visual neuroscience concentrates on mechanisms that let the cortex adapt its circu... View full abstract»
