    This paper describes the bird information retrieval system using the fuzzy semantic concepts. To deal with the uncertainty, fuzzy logic is often used to provide a convenient tool for interfacing linguistic categories with numerical data and for expressing one user's preferences in a gradual and qualitative way. Based on this idea, we can develop a fuzzy semantic query model that formulates a query... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the process of selecting a graduate school. To make the decision it is necessary to carefully look at the motivating factors. The criteria for selecting the graduate school are: 1) the graduating school should make the job search; 2) a well-respected school is advantageous in the post-graduation job search; 3) outside activities offered by the school provides the opportunity f...

    This article provides a tremendous opportunity for the use of biological sequence information as "molecular fossils" of information that could be compared between extant organisms to determine their evolution. Seemingly all that was required was additional sequence information and better computers and algorithms for their interpretation. Assessing the reliability of phylogenies involves difficult ...

  • Blurry when wet: animating raindrop behavior

    In this article, we introduce a simple but efficient approach to real-time animation of raindrop behavior on windshields and generate the visual effects caused by raindrops. This method differs from existing work because it doesn't construct 3-D water droplets or use ray-tracing algorithms. Instead, it applies a partial-distortion method to approximate water droplets and their visual effects on a ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the design of low-cost DC motor controller for use by robot hobbyists. The motor controller created by this project has a profound impact on the robot hobbyist arena by creating a product that performs far beyond its expectations This is due to the fact that this motor controller will drive two independent DC motors with the same functionality found in a high-end single motor ...

    This paper describes how to improve the technical reading skills. In order to become a better technical reader first consider how you do your reading now. Identify the conditions that would help you to focus on the task without distraction. As much as possible you choose a time of day or night when you are alert. Once you identified all these physical conditions should be chosen to optimize your c... View full abstract»

    Intelligent agents are software programs that act on behalf of human users or other systems to carry out arduous information gathering and processing tasks. Thus, an agent-oriented approach is well suited for helping "a human" to find needed information on the Internet. This article describes the design of a multi-agent system and its cooperation with existing search engines. The proposed system i... View full abstract»

    In this article, the reality of virtual environment is described in detail. Highly detailed three-dimensional (3D) computer models and environments are commonly used in design, manufacturing, simulation, and entertainment. These virtual environments (VEs) are often successful at appearing realistic when time remains still, but as the mobile objects are set into motion and interact with their surro...
