    IPv6 proponents are now supporting the once-criticized network address translation technology to enable communication between the two technologies and allow for an orderly transition to IPv6. It could provide more than enough IP addresses for the exploding number of Internet-connected devices. The Internet protocol's previous version, IPv4, could not do so. View full abstract»

    Software development is a key issue in brain-computer interface (BCI) research. Software can show the similarities and differences of different data processing methods. It can also make clear which hyperparameters must be determined for particular algorithms. And it can demonstrate whether certain concepts are compatible or not. With BioSig's comprehensive library of free and open source tools, co... View full abstract»

    BCI systems let users convert thoughts into actions that do not involve voluntary muscle movement. The systems offer a new means of communication for those with paralysis or severe neuromuscular disorders. BCI technology is a relatively new, fast-growing field of research and applications with the potential to improve the quality of life in severely disabled people. To date, several BCI prototypes...
