Fundació URV posted this:Transparency and Control over Online AdvertisingThe most popular tools for ad control nowadays are blockers, which remove any form of advertising and thus are against the business model that sustains the Web nowadays. Unlike this radical approach, MyAdChoices is a tool that brings transparency and real control over advertising by allowing users to make informed and equitable decision regarding ad blocking, and by enabling them to exert fine-grained control over advertising.

Syncoda Technologies posted this:US9226722 (B2) - Medical Imaging System and Method with Separate Primary and Scattered ComponentsA computed tomography (CT) or ultra sound imaging system and method are configured to construct images of an object. The imaging system includes: a radiation or ultrasound source including a collimating or a blocking device configured to generate both a narrow beam and a wide beam; a detector configured to detect radiation or ultrasound wave from the radiation or ultrasound wave from the radiation or ultrasound source; and at least one processing circuit configured to: determine a scatter-to-primary ratio (SPR) of the wide beam based on the narrow beam; determine a primary component of the wide beam based on the SPR to thereby separate the primary component from a scattered component of the wide beam; and construct an image of an object inside a patient using the primary component to thereby improve a contrast of the object.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US8238513 (B2) - IMAGING SYSTEM AND METHOD UTILIZING PRIMARY RADIATIONAn imaging system and method for producing an image based on primary radiation. A separate image based solely on scattered radiation may also be obtained and may be of practical interests. The separation of primary and scattered radiation is achieved by utilizing a small beam exposure and a cone beam exposure, then the primary and scatter images are reconstructed based on a pencil beam model or from a Monte Carlo method. Other embodiments disclosed include two-layer detector arrays or volumetric detector arrays that measure the relationship between the dose and the position, from which the primary and scattered radiation can be extracted. In addition, by limiting a readout time of a detector, primary radiation component may be read because of a delay in the scattered radiation.

Langsoft posted this:Text to speech Machine TranslationOur text to speech technology is based on whole words, phrases and concepts, not on phonemes and syllables. Our programs pronounce, with a human voice, only words or meanings that exist in the language and do that immediately, with the translation. As such, our programs fully preserve the accent and the stress of the spoken word.
Langsoft posted this:A Computer System for Automated Reasoning to find implicit information in Natural Language SentencesInferences are made when a human being or computer software program finds unavailable evidence to form a conclusion. Our intelligent software program has an inductive and deductive automated reasoning. It can find and display implicit information that is not explicitly mentioned in the text, not contained in the synonyms of the particular word, or present in the concept the word belongs to. No statistical analysis or concordance based analysis can detect this information. Nevertheless, this implicit information is present and understood, implicitly, consciously or unconsciously, by everybody who reads the text.
University of Huelva posted this:New device and system for the recovery of communication equipmentThe present device is focused on the automatic recovery of operating systems for routers and switches, which is one of the fundamental claims on this invention since there are no current devices in the state-of-the-art for such purposes. Another particularity that distinguishes to the present invention is that it is not only software or hardware in contrast to other approaches, but of a complete hardware/software device (i.e, both capabilities are combined). Another of the most significant singularities is its portability, since the invention is based on a reduced size device (non rackable) and made up of autonomous battery. This allows to carry out any function with total freedom to move. Besides the comfort, it contributes a great improvement in working time, since operating with distant devices implies an additional time in turning off, turning on again, and enabling the necessary services to start the recovery procedure. As additional feature, the invention looks for the universality and independence from manufacturers or device model. Besides this purpose, another differentiated function is the capability to store the firmware of the communication devices to be recovered (i.e., the image of the operating system) through an internal physical storage unit of great capacity.
University of Huelva posted this:Auto-assemblable RJ45 male connectorOn the one hand, the invention does not require a crimp tool, which is ideal for cabling operations that require quickness. On the other hand, the innovation allows reusing the RJ plug as many times as required until properly assembling the copper pairs. Furthermore, the connector incorporates an identification by color codes for wiring according to the ANSI/TIA-968-A-2002 standard, which is ideal for people with limited dexterity on IT.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Cloud System for Electronic Receipt ManagementThe industrial computer network research group (I2RC) from the University of Alicante has developed a Cloud system for automatic generation and management of receipts. The system can easily be integrated into the points of sale of the company and allows scanning, storing and transmitting receipts between devices and the cloud according to the safety standards of digital signature and payment. With this technology, it is not necessary print receipts. The management of the receipts from sales may be made ubiquitously over the Internet, both by customers and by the firms. In addition, the system allows the implementation of applications and analysis tools that improve competitiveness and create opportunities for exploitation and commercial development.
Fundació URV posted this:Automatic sanitization of textual documentsRedaction or sanitization is required to declassify sensitive textual documents or make them available for secondary use. This task, which is complex, time-consuming and prone to errors, is performed manually by one or several human experts. Our technology automatizes the process by automatically detecting terms and term combinations appearing in the documents that may disclose sensitive information. Such terms are then subject to redaction or generalization.
Northeastern University's Center for Research Innovation posted this:Automatic Tool for Scouring the Internet and Generating Names Linked to Illegal Activities to Facilitate Detection and Reporting of Suspicious ActivitiesFinancial institutions are actively required to track clients engaged in illegal/suspicious activities in order to understand their overall risk exposure. Such activities are currently performed manually. Moreover, there is a lack of suitable product(s)/technique(s) in the market for real time, adverse media scanning. Additionally, the currently used products/techniques are associated with many possible limitations such as limited name matching parameters, imprecise transaction filtering rules, presence of false positives, significant human interventions, and absence of appropriate platforms for information sharing. The invention discloses a novel system/method to facilitate detection and reporting of suspicious/illegal activities over the internet.
Northeastern University's Center for Research Innovation posted this:A New E-Field Writable Magnetic Random Access Memory Based on MultiferroicsCurrently, magnetic random access memories (MRAMs) use a magnetic field to control corresponding magnetic states. Such systems are comparatively bulkier and are associated with high-power consumption. With ever changing life-style; the demand for faster, smaller and ultra-low power memory systems is significantly increasing. This approach allows for the development and use of a novel electric field (E-Field) controllable MRAMs based on multi-ferroics.
