BACKGROUND New diagnostic tools are urgently needed to interrupt the transmission of tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. Rapid, sensitive detection of tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in sputum has been demonstrated in proof-of-principle studies of the microscopic-observation drug-susceptibility (MODS) assay, in which broth(More)
If one considers life on Earth since its very beginning, three levels of organization can be distinguished: the phylogenetic level concerns the temporal evolution of the genetic programs within individuals and species, the ontogenetic level concerns the developmental process of a single multicellular organism, and the epigenetic level concerns the learning(More)
It is clear to all, after a moments thought, that nature has much we might be inspired by when designing our systems, for example: robustness, adaptability and complexity, to name a few. The implementation of bioinspired systems in hardware has however been limited, and more often than not been more a matter of artistry than engineering. The reasons for(More)
In this paper we present a platform for evolving spiking neural networks on FPGAs. Embedded intelligent applications require both high performance, so as to exhibit real-time behavior, and flexibility, to cope with the adaptivity requirements. While hardware solutions offer performance, and software solutions offer flexibility, reconfigurable computing(More)
From December 2005 to April 2007, we enrolled 60 adults starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) in a health district of Lima, Peru to receive community-based accompaniment with supervised antiretroviral (CASA). Paid community health workers performed twice-daily home visits to directly observe ART and offered additional medical, social and economic support to(More)
Randomly connecting networks have proven to be universal computing machines. By interconnecting a set of nodes in a random way one can model very complicated non-linear dynamic systems. Although random Boolean networks (RBN) use Boolean functions as their basic component, there are not hardware implementations of such systems. The absence of implementations(More)
Self-reconfigurable adaptive systems have the possibility of adapting their own hardware configuration. This feature provides enhanced performance and flexibility, reflected in computational cost reductions. Self-reconfigurable adaptation requires powerful optimization algorithms in order to search in a space of possible hardware configurations. If such(More)
The CryptoBooster is a modular and reconfigurable cryptographic coprocessor that takes full advantage of current high-performance reconfigurable circuits (FPGAs) and their partial reconfigurability. The CryptoBooster works as a coprocessor with a host system in order to accelerate cryptographic operations. A series of cryptographic modules for different(More)
