Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:CATCHAPs/HIPS to test and improve the securityA research group from the Computer Engineering Department of the University of Alcalá proposes a security analysis expertise to those individuals and companies that are developing their own CAPTCHA/HIP proposals or want to test the security of their current proposals. The group can also work towards the improvement of the security of current CAPTCHA/HIP proposals whenever that target is attainable. Moreover, the group has a few CAPTCHA proposals that could be implemented at a grand scale level. These proposals though, need to undergo a security analysis previous to being put into production. It could be possible to share part of the IP with the companies wanting to implement these proposals if they assist the group economically in their initial implementation and security analysis. The group is seeking for individual clients and companies to achieve collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universitat de València posted this:Software for atmospheric gases compensation in infrared spectra• Easy to use: a blank spectrum with water vapor, CO2 and other interfering vapours has to be obtained under the same measurement conditions as those employed for the acquisition of the spectra to be corrected, straightforward selection of relative absorbance values • Fast: very fast computation as the algorithm is not complex • Universal: the compensation method can be applied in a vast amount of situations (different samples and sampling devices, different measurement conditions). Compensation of other gases different to H2O and CO2. • This method do not use spectra smoothing, avoiding distortion of infrared bands from the analytes. • Improvement of the results obtained employing commercially available software tool.
xrqtc posted this:Polymorphism Prediction in Crystal Systems of Technological InterestCurrent polymorphism studies are being carried out using one of the following three alternatives: atom-atom potentials, DFT (Density Functional Theory) calculations and ad-hoc potentials. However, all of them have serious disadvantatges. 1) with software that uses atom-atom potentials: Advantages: fast and capable of working with large molecules. Disadvantages: the "blind tests" carried out by the "Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre" are giving a 50% maximum success in the predictions. 2) with software based on DFT calculations: Advantages: good results Disadvantages: they are computationally very slow, so they are only used for very simple molecules compared with drug molecules. In addition, they have errors predicting van der Waals interactions and weak hydrogen bridges if not corrected empirically. 3) with software using ad hoc potentials for each molecule obtained from systematic exploration of the surface potential of intermolecular interactions: Advantages: efficient and faster. Disadvantages: some potentials should be calculated for each molecule studied, which are complex and slow, and is not general. The approach presented here is new and unique because the potential Pixel has never been used before for drawing polymorphic predictions and it has shown to present the advantages of all the alternatives combined. This is the first research group which has brought the potential Pixel to this level of calculation. The potential calculations and the applicability of the methode based on pixels have the same quality that the sophisticated ab initio based potential calculations. Besides, this is much faster than DFT (Functional-Based Theory)-based and ad hoc potentials ..
Fundació URV posted this:Integral management of all kinds of user information using a single computer application and a single object-oriented databaseThe innovative aspect of the proposed technology is to allow the users to focus on their data objects, not on the specific workflows of the applications: this is known as the document-centered approach, in contrast with the application-centered approach. Other technologies addressed the document-centered approach in the past, such as the Carnegie Mellon University's Andrew toolkit (1985), the Dr. Ken Sakamura's BTRON system (1985), the Hewlett-Packard's NewWave framework (1987), the Microsoft's OLE and ActiveX technologies (1992) and the Apple and IBM's OpenDoc architecture (1994). However, all of them are based on file systems to store the information, and some of them still use classical computer applications as the native user interface for its document-oriented workflow (i.e. OLE/ActiveX). The main new aspects of the proposed technology are the integration of all information into a single object-oriented database, the object hierarchy management to build more complex objects, the zoomable user interface to edit/view each object in a hierarchical fashion, and the organization of the information objects into projects, sets and subsets (see the specifications for more details).

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Aerial obstacle detection software for the visually impairedThe main innovations of this technology are that this software can be executed in any smartphone equipped with a 3D camera, which is used to detect the distance to the obstacles, and it provides an accessible interface that alerts the user by means of beeps or vibration when it finds an obstacle. The alert becomes more and more frequent as the obstacle is closer. The system is comfortable and discreet making easier the user social integration. It is worth to highlight that this technology is new for this kind of devices. Until now, smartphones were not able to extract real measures from the environment. This application extracts about 30000 measures per frame, with a frame rate of 9 fps. The interface allows configuring different features: operation mode, alert type, volume, speech velocity, language, etc.

It allows you to choose the most appropriate psychosocial intervention for people suffering from dementia, depending on their level of cognitive impairment and other signs and symptoms such as aphasia or anxietyIt is a very simple software. It does not needt to be installed, just needs internet access, together with a user name and password. It is very easy to use and very useful when professionals need to take quick decisions based on best existing evidence. They have to consider level of patient's dementia according to MMSE test and study their signs and symptoms in order to obtain the best psychosocial intervention that is recommended.
