    Biomimetics is a general description for engineering a process or system that mimics biology. The term emerged from biochemistry and applies to an infinite range of chemical and mechanical phenomena, from cellular processes to whole-organism functions. We define biomimetics as extracting principles from biology and applying them to man-made devices - particularly robots. We say two forces are driv... View full abstract»

    The high tides that periodically flood Venice, locally known as acqua alta, are becoming more serious due to recent changes in the surrounding lagoon as well as atmospheric conditions. A special office of the Municipality of Venice, the Center for Tide Prediction and Warning (Centro Previsioni e Segnalazioni Maree-CPSM), provides a continuous tide forecast based on computational models as well as ...

    Incorporating the well-known Unified Modeling Language into a generic modeling framework makes research on multimodal human-computer interaction accessible to a wide range off software engineers. Multimodal interaction is part of everyday human discourse: We speak, move, gesture, and shift our gaze in an effective flow of communication. Recent initiatives such as perceptual and attentive user inte... View full abstract»
