    The rate at which technology is improving has never been equaled at any other time. As such, there is an increase in reliance on this continually improving technology. We often rely on some product of technology for activities, from the alarm device that prompts us to wake up in the morning to the mobile devices and their various applications that accompany us throughout the day. As these products... View full abstract»

    This article focuses on maintaining a positive learning rate of a student being taught in a classroom using facial expression recognition and tree augmented naive (TAN) Bayes classifier on a biped robot platform. A TAN Bayes classifier is used to recognize the affective emotional states. Once the emotional state of the student is recognized, his/her learning rate is observed using the theory of co...

    Cloud computing - a relatively recent term - builds on decades of research in virtualization, distributed computing, utility computing, and, more recently, networking, and Web and software services. It implies a service-oriented architecture, reduced information technology overhead for the end-user, great flexibility, reduced total cost of ownership, on-demand services, and many other things. It i... View full abstract»

    A smart e-Receptionist is a computer application that is capable of sensing approaching visitors, orally greeting them, picking up their voice and understanding their questions, and then talking back to them appropriately. It may also have a limited self-learning capability of accumulating “knowledge” through its interactions with visitors. In this article, we present the recently de... View full abstract»

    The necessary effort dedicated to learn a parallel programming language should not represent a serious increase in difficulty since the main limitations are not necessarily dependent on the programming language itself. The major difficulties are usually associated with the assimilation of concepts related with parallel programming, such as the concurrent use of shared variables, the single-instruc...

    Ubiquitous and pervasive communication services have rapidly gained popularity over the last few years. The main objective of these services is to allow information exchange in all environments. While this information exchange conventionally takes place between hand-held devices carried by the end users, a similar information exchange between vehicles is being envisaged. Vehicular communication is... View full abstract»

    Modern-day robots do not necessarily look like humans, but they are programmed to handle tasks that are normally carried out by humans, especially in big factories that manufacture products like cars. Employers prefer these mechanical devices because of many reasons: they are faster and more accurate than human workers, they never ask for a pay hike, nor do they take endless coffee breaks. Robots ... View full abstract»
