    The nanotechnology module was designed to introduce nanotechnology and the ideas behind it to students who know little about the subject. Students participate In hands-on activities that give them a better sense of how small the nano world really is, and to learn about the various applications of nanotechnology at the same time.

    In this paper, we have looked at formalization. A computer program must be and is a formalization. Basic data and processes must always be given a formalized description. We can use the computer to perform tasks that would have been considered intelligent if they were performed by humans, such as navigation or playing chess. But after the problem is formalized, the computer finds solutions by addi... View full abstract»

    Like the master puppet makers of the classic folk tales, artificial intelligence (AI) engineers have built some marvelous machines. The first 50 years of AI focused on programming computers to perform tasks that previously only humans could do tasks such as speech, driving, planning, problem solving and vacuuming. The principal challenges have been to create suitable language systems and inference... View full abstract»

    Physics-based animation employs the laws of physics to animate mechanical and geometrical objects on computers. Essentially, this animation technique incorporates various physical parameters, as well as geometrical information, into a computer model of the object, then applies well-known laws to the model, thereby simulating the object's behavior under various stresses and forces. We have used phy... View full abstract»

    As observed, the described approach to computer-aided error detection in printed matter proves itself to be exact and reliable. Our prototype printing error detection computer program has also undergone extreme testing in an industrial environment. The problem of excessive detection duration will have to be solved by an optimization of the registration and interpolation procedures. When considerin... View full abstract»

    Routing in sensor networks is an area of research, with a still-limited but rapidly growing set of research results. Although many of these routing techniques look promising, there are still many challenges that need to be solved. Another interesting issue for routing protocols is node mobility. Most of the current protocols assume that the sensor nodes and the base station are stationary. However... View full abstract»
