Column-oriented data stores, such as BigTable and HBase, have successfully paved the way for managing large key-value datasets with random accesses. At the same time, the declining cost of flash SSDs have enabled their use in several applications including large databases. In this paper, we explore the feasibility of introducing flash SSDs for HBase. Since(More)
A quality impairment assessment along with a quality score would enable Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) to make appropriate decisions to a) reject the fingerprint and recapture another sample, b) use other fingers or biometric features for recognition, c) use image enhancement techniques. Our approach provides a quality score in addition(More)
We propose a novel system to analyze gestural and nonverbal cues of participants in video conferencing. These cues have previously been referred to as “honest signals” and are usually associated with the underlying cognitive state of the participants. The presented system analyzes a set of audio-visual, non-linguistic features in real time(More)
A new kind of double short strip and single-side micro strip type antenna architecture to develop a frequency reconfigurable annular slot antenna. The design and characterization of this "reconfigurable antenna (RA) annular slot" which was built on a microwave laminate TMM10i Rogers (permittivity=9. 8, loss tangent=0. 002), are presented in this(More)
