    Humor is everywhere, as long as you are willing to see it, both accidental and intentional. Computers have evolved from simple calculating machines to playing chess, controlling air and space flights, and talking to humans. They are increasingly used to informally gather information from humans using human language. The paper mentions that will a computer ever understand humor as well as we do? So...

    In the beginning of the 21st century, cars are available to many people, and the dominant energy infrastructure is comprised of gasoline stations. Clean source electric vehicles are desired but the electric power grid needs an extensive and smart upgrade. Gas-electric hybrid vehicles have returned with advanced electronic controls as the "now" solution to energy concerns. (The "gas" moniker includ... View full abstract»

  • 60 years since "kpb wcy xz" became more informative than "I love you"

    We have attempted to give a gentle overview of the concept of information theory, proposed by Claude E Shannon in 1948. Though the idea of "informative message" as per Shannon's theory is counterintuitive, on closer inspection, it is found to be not so. We have demonstrated the application of information content and information entropy on a couple of types of symbol sequences. Primarily, such anal... View full abstract»

    Based on nonlinear acoustic and acoustic signal processing theoretical analyses, we designed and implemented a directional sound projection (or parametric loudspeaker) system, known as the audio beam system (ABS). The prototyping of the parametric loudspeaker consists of three main components: a digital signal processor (DSP), amplifier, and ultrasound emitters. The programmable DSP is the main pr...

    Part V discussed frequency conversion and its use in larger systems. This sixth and last article in the series is about two topics: first, vestigial-sideband modulation as an example system of significant complexity and, second, changing a sample rate by a rational but nonintegral ratio. Figures are numbered in one sequence across the entire series, and gaps appear in their numbering in some indiv... View full abstract»

    Hardware multithreading is enabled in silicon for graphics chips or graphics-processing units (GPUs) and to some level in servers. The case is now being presented for software and newer applications to catch up with hardware, in particular to Moore's law. The approach can be to enhance operating systems, compilers, software languages, and applications in that order, for maximum utilization of the ... View full abstract»

    The goal of standardization is to allow/ the interoperability of products made by different equipment manufacturers based on open technical specifications. The goal of patenting a technical innovation is to have the exclusive rights for commercial exploitation of the invention for a period of time. This article elaborates on the compilation by F. Ramirez-Mireles in 2006, describing the general gui... View full abstract»
