Focus and vision have brought Applied Science Laboratories of Bedford, Massachusetts, to the forefront of the eye tracking industry. ASL makes eye tracking devices. Its vision is to pursue applications across a broad range of human needs. ASL systems are used worldwide in eye tracking applications for fields such as human factors and ergonomics, marketing(More)
Evolutionary approaches to judgment under uncertainty have led to new data showing that untutored subject reliably produce judgments that conform to may principles of probability theory when (a) they are asked to compute a frequency instead of the probability of a single event, and (b) the relevant information is expressed as frequencies. But are the(More)
Electrical fuse (eFUSE) has become a popular choice to enable memory redundancy, chip identification and authentication, analog device trimming, and other applications. We will review the evolution and applications of electrical fuse solutions for 180 nm to 45 nm technologies at IBM, and provide some insight into future uses in 32 nm technology and beyond(More)
Three experiments examined adult humans' folk physics (i.e., their naturally occurring understanding of the physical world) using variations of rope-and-banana problems that are used to study chimpanzees' folk physics. When presented with symbolic versions of these problems, the participants' choices were controlled by both the presence of a physical(More)
Natural Resources programs are open to all and will not discriminate against anyone because of race The kudzu bug (Megacopta cribraria) is a soybean pest that was introduced to the U.S. from Asia in 2009, and has rapidly spread across southeastern states. The bug was first found in Maryland in 2013. The harsh winter in 2014 largely stopped the spread of the(More)
The distribution of figural "goodness" in 2 mental shape spaces, the space of triangles and the space of quadrilaterals, was examined. In Experiment 1, participants were asked to rate the typicality of visually presented triangles and quadrilaterals (perceptual task). In Experiment 2, participants were asked to draw triangles and quadrilaterals by hand(More)
