In the past, sensors networks in cities have been limited to fixed sensors, embedded in particular locations, under centralised control. Today, new applications can leverage wireless devices and use them as sensors to create aggregated information. In this paper, we show that the emerging patterns unveiled through the analysis of large sets of aggregated(More)
Over the past decade there has been an explosion in the deployment of pervasive systems like cell phone networks and content aggregators on the Internet that produce massive amounts of data as by-products of their interaction with users. This data is related to the actions and opinions of people and thereby to the overall dynamics of cities, how they(More)

—In this paper, we outline an algorithm for the automatic segmentation of sparse data in order to detect possible terrain-deformation phenomena. Segmentation is accomplished through a graph cut technique. In the graph structure, for each edge, we derive a unique energy by combining multiple independent energies tailored toward accurately locating the(More)
1 The neuroleptic [(3)H]-haloperidol (HP) was taken up in synaptosomes prepared from rat brain, in a temperature-, sodium ion-, and energy-dependent process. 2 The highest concentration of uptake sites (V(max)=2.37 pmol mg(-1) protein min(-1)) was in the striatum with the other brain areas displaying lower (by 50-70%) values. 3 The affinity values (K(m)(More)
