INTRODUCTION Indoors and in nature alike, the auditory scenes that we perceive unfold in reverberant environments. In a reverberant sound field, reflected acoustic waves reach the listener from all directions, interfering with the direct sound and distorting the binaural cues for sound localization such as interaural time and level differences (ITD and(More)
—We present a system consisting of a spiking cochlea chip and real-time event-based processing software that is able to discriminate between two sets of sounds based on their periodicity content. The periodicity measurements are computed from the spike timing information of asynchronous output spikes from the binaural spiking-cochlea chip. The chip consists(More)
Since the late-1990s, over 25 U.S. shared-use vehicle programs—including carsharing and station cars—have been launched. Given their presumed social and environmental benefits, the majority of these programs received some governmental support—primarily in the form of startup grants and subsidized parking.

BACKGROUND Traditional metrics of the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and health insurance marketplaces in the United States include public opinion polls and marketplace enrollment, which are published with a lag of weeks to months. In this rapidly changing environment, a real-time barometer of public opinion with a mechanism to identify emerging(More)
