    The proposition that electrical noise could be useful is anathema to the designers of electronics and communication systems, who usually have a mission to eradicate as much noise as possible. One needs to look outside the parameters of conventional assumptions and perspectives for situations where electrical noise can be useful. Two topics are sufficient to illustrate affirmative answers to the po... View full abstract»

    To grasp the challenges and potentials faced, an overview of the fundamentals of recording electrical cell activity is in order. Many types of cells can undergo a transient electrical depolarization and repolarization, triggered by external mechanisms or by intracellular, spontaneous mechanisms. Cells that can generate electrical signals are called electrogenic cells. The most common types of elec... View full abstract»

    Complementary semiconductor-metal-oxide (CMOS) technology is a very powerful technology that can be more or less directly interfaced to electrogenic cells, like heart or brain cells in vitro. To this end, the cells are cultured directly atop the CMOS chips, which usually undergo dedicated postprocessing to obtain a reliable bidirectional interface via noble-metal microelectrodes or high-k dielectr...

    Ever since the microphone was first connected to a loudspeaker, acoustical engineers have had to grapple with the unintended consequence of acoustic feedback, a phenomenon that occurs when the sound generating from a loudspeaker inadvertently returns to the microphone in a closed loop. This feedback not only deteriorates sound quality and limits achievable amplification, but its most characteristi... View full abstract»

    The acoustic feedback problem has intrigued researchers over the past five decades, and a multitude of solutions has been proposed. In this survey paper, we aim to provide an overview of the state of the art in acoustic feedback control, to report results of a comparative evaluation with a selection of existing methods, and to cast a glance at the challenges for future research.

    Privacy has become a critical topic in the engineering of networked systems. Electronic surveillance, both covert and overt, has a negative impact on both the individual and society, and the public's perception of engineered systems that forsake the privacy issue is increasingly negative. Engineers and computer scientists thus have a moral obligation to avoid design choices that are unnecessarily ... View full abstract»

    In 1981, the National Inventors Hall of Fame inducted the engineer inventor, Harold S. Black, of Bell Telephone Laboratories, into its ranks, in recognition of his invention of negative feedback amplifiers. He received a total of 62 U.S. patents during his professional career.
