To explore the integration of functional neuronal interactions in human higher cortical functions, we applied multivariate mathematical techniques to regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) increases induced by mental activity. rCBF was measured using the intravenous xenon-133 clearance technique with 32 bihemispheric detectors in 84 normal volunteers at rest(More)
Reputation systems are crucial for distributed applications in which users have to be made accountable for their actions, such as e-commerce websites. However, existing systems often disclose the identity of the raters, which might deter honest users from posting reviews, out of fear of retaliation from the ratees. While many privacy-preserving reputation(More)
Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been proposed as a potential therapeutic for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and its efficacy is currently being tested in mild-to-moderate AD. Earlier studies reported the presence of anti-amyloid beta (Aβ) antibodies in IVIG. These observations led to clinical studies investigating the potential role of IVIG as a therapeutic(More)
Web applications are subject to several types of attacks. In particular, side-channel attacks consist in performing a statistical analysis of the web traffic to gain sensitive information about a client. In this paper, we investigate how side-channel leaks can be used on search engines such as Google or Bing to retrieve the client's search query. In(More)
—Reputation systems are a major feature of every modern e-commerce website, helping buyers carefully choose their service providers and products. However, most websites use centralized reputation systems, where the security of the system rests entirely upon a single Trusted Third Party. Moreover, they often disclose the identities of the raters, which may(More)
—In this paper, we explore control theory as a solution to stop epidemic outbreaks in networks. Control theory deals with the behavior of dynamical systems, specifically networks in this case. We investigate the process of finding sets of nodes required to control a network, and applying an input to these nodes in order to drive the system from a given(More)
This work presents a novel autonomous parking concept for a four wheel-steerable robotic electric vehicle called ROboMObil (ROMO). Its extraordinary maneuverability, including rotations and lateral driving, and its capability of autonomous driving is demonstrated in the application of parallel parking. The whole process is described starting with the(More)
