Model-Based Spectral Library for Bacterial Identification
BackgroundIt is essential to develop more efficient diagnostic methods to mitigate the spread infectious diseases. Current methods of bacterial identification use matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) which is protein based mass spectra that cannot differentiate closely related bacterial species....

CAR: Cloud-Assisted Routing
Background Multi-homing and peering practices as well as the demand on more routing flexibility have been contributing to the increasing complexity at routers. Operators expect more router programmability, which further challenges router architectures by inclusion of software-based designs and virtualization of routing as a service. Because of the...

Hand-Based Gender Classification
BackgroundIn computer vision, the majority of studies on gender classification are based on face because visual information from human faces provides important cues for gender classification. Less popular for gender classification is the use of modalities other than the face such as hands, irises and fingerprints, but using different parts of the body...

Error Detection Method
BackgroundWith the advent of multimedia and realistic physics in games, the home use of computers is becoming more computationally intensive. With computationally intensive use, intermittent errors may occur more frequently. As hardware and software become more complicated intermittent hardware errors may become more difficult to diagnose. A need therefore...

Hybrid human/robot coordinated joint motion control architecture for application in unstructured environments involving iterative or repetitive tasks
Robotics used in the manufacturing industry cannot be aptly applied in machinery operations that require complex operations and variable tasks or a changing environment that is unstructured and requires on-going adjustment. University of Nevada, Reno's Coordinated Joint Motion Control (JMC) architecture allows for artificial intelligence enhanced...
