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.

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.
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:A computer implemented method of generation of statistically uncorrelated molecule’s conformations and computer programsA CUDA‐platform‐based parallel implementation of the Rosenbluth molecular generation methods that outperform by a factor of up to 2,000 times an equivalent implementation on single CPU processor. This boost will greatly shorten the simulation time in static Monte Carlo simulation related with Rosenbluth algorithm. With growing popularity and performance of GPU structure, this method can be applied on different platforms and operating system serve a huge benefits in simulation efficiency with the same accuracy compared with CPU calculation. The present patent break the performance bottleneck of existing molecular conformation generating methods, significantly improving the parallel performance, and has broad application prospects in the static Monte Carlo simulation of high resolution.

CITCEA-UPC posted this:Technology transfer in renewable energies, power electronics, energy control, electrical vehicles...CITCEA-UPC is a technology transfer center which was created in 2001 within the UPC (Universitat PolitÃ¨cnica de Catalunya, BarcelonaTech), and it is specialized in responding to electrical and electronic technological challenges. The aim of the center is to receive these challenges and solve them by creating a functional prototype that will serve the companies to eventually develop a new commercial product or to solve a new technological problem created by the growth and evolution of the society.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Machine-to-Cloud Management System of Distributed Heterogeneous DevicesThe Specialized Processors Architecture Laboratory (SPA-Lab group) research group from University of Alicante has developed a system which improves remote control systems processes of different kind of devices geographically spread, through the Cloud. This suggested system provides independence between application layer and remote-controlled devices. Its main advantage is the homogeneity of mechanisms and functions for their interaction with the devices no matter their nature and the scope of the application. The supplied technology may be used in sectors needing monitoring and controlling a wide range of devices. The research team supplies the companies both the “know-how” for the necessary adaptation and implementation of the system and the possibility of licensing this technology.
DIT Hothouse posted this:Pressure Sensitive HologramsThey are currently widely used on credit cards, cheques and high value items. However, because mass production of holograms is traditionally from a single ‘master hologram’ all security holograms for a particular product range are identical and any serialization is non holographic (e.g. printed serial numbers over the hologram surface in regular black ink). This technology addresses the gap in the market for individualized holograms which each contain a unique number or code that can checked easily by the end user. The end user simply checks the number against the serial number on the product and verifies that (1) the security hologram is present and (2) it is genuine. The product is a stand alone printed text or pattern which has the appearance of a transmission hologram (typically rainbow effect, but microtext within the printed text could be also incorporated if higher complexity is required). The unique characteristic of the product is that due to the holographic digital printing technique each product can be individualised at no additional price compared to similar hologram products.

In order for the potential of data analytics to be fully realised, analytics tools must be developed for use by the widest user-base possible. Under the CeADAR Intelligent Analytic Interfaces: Ease of Interaction theme, smart analytics tools are being developed to aid non-analytics specialist users in exploring datasets and performing analytics tasks. The first task selected for focus under this theme is customer segmentation, an especially common data analytics task and one that organisations tend to perform when they first start to use data analytics. Presenting segmentation results to the user in a way that is interpretable is the key to the success of SmartSeg. To understand customer segmentations analytics practitioners compare the distributions of features within a segment to the distributions of the same features in the underlying full population. While major existing analytics tools have enabled widespread adoption of data analytics, they remain mostly targeted at expert analytics users. At CeADAR we are developing smart analytics tools for non-analytics experts - the so called next billion users.
