    Existing methods to predict software reliability using the Markov chain are based on assumed state-transition probabilities. A new prediction approach applied to a nuclear plant's feed-water system yielded results that were 96.9 percent accurate relative to the system's actual reliability. Across 38 operational datasets, the average accuracy was 99.67 percent. View full abstract»

    An algorithm that projects image intensity along a radial line oriented at a specific angle enables the recognition of vehicular license plates at odd angles. The algorithm determines orientation angle, rotates the image to a horizontal perspective, and removes image noise from rotation to achieve recognition accuracy as high as 98 percent.

    A population model shows that distrust in e-government services--the belief that the service deliberately sabotages the user's intent--spreads rapidly even when problems affect only a few users. Strategies such as user-focused development and the use of cloud-based services can help mitigate that distrust. View full abstract»
