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 method for manufacturing powder metallurgy magnetsThe conventional method of press followed by furnace sintering is now substituted by an electrical consolidation method. This allows joining in a single step the previous pressing/sintering processes, and, due to the promptness of the process, the use of controlled atmospheres is not necessary. The steps of magnetization, and eventual thermal treatments, can be carried out in the same container, without being necessary to manipulate the product.
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 Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Novel Synchronization Process for Multi-carrier or Single-carrier CommunicationsThe research group “Communications, Multirate Systems, and Biomedical Engineering” of the University of Alcala presents a novel synchronization procedure for multicarrier or single carrier systems for narrowband and broadband communications. This procedure allows a precise estimation of the symbol timing offset (STO), and a coarse estimation of carrier frequency offset (CFO). The procedure is based on the inclusion of symmetric extensions in the transmitted symbols for the synchronization, which makes it useful not only for communications systems based on the discrete Fourier transform, but also for transceivers based on the discrete cosine transform (DCT). Among its main applications are communications through single-mode optical fiber, powerline communications, wireless and wireline systems, and in general, all the techniques that use multicarrier and single carrier modulations. The group seeks companies from the telecommunications sector to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreement with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.
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.
UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Distributed interference cancelation based on outdated channel gain informationA group of researchers from a Portuguese university has developed a technology for distributed communication systems where several pairs of transmitters/receivers communicate simultaneously using the same resources. The invention aims to increase the throughput of current cellular communication systems. The advantages of this technology in relation to existing solutions are: 1) the throughput is enhanced and proportional to the square root of the number of transmitter/receiver pairs. 2) the interference is canceled using only outdated channel gain information and the interference removal procedure is distributed. The university is looking for companies on the wireless communications arena interested in improving the capacity of their communication systems.
