—Runtime reconfigurable architectures based on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are attractive for realizing complex applications. However, being manufactured in latest semiconductor process technologies, FPGAs are increasingly prone to aging effects, which reduce the reliability of such systems and must be tackled by aging mitigation and application(More)
The IEEE Standard 754-1985 for binary floating-point arithmetic [1] was revised [2], and an important addition is the definition of decimal floating-point arithmetic. This is intended mainly to provide a robust, reliable framework for financial applications that are often subject to legal requirements concerning rounding and precision of the results,(More)

This extended abstract briefly describes a new methodology for shared decision-making in human/multi-robot teams. We present a new application of FORR, a cognitive architecture that considers the opinions of others when choosing actions. While robots in our system ultimately make their own decisions about their actions, they do so based on collective advice(More)
Our research involves application of methods well-studied in virtual multiagent systems (MAS) but less well-understood in physical multi-robot systems (MRS). This paper investigates the relationship between performance results collected in parallel simulated (multiagent) and physical (multi-robot) environments. Our hypothesis is that some performance(More)
Since the brain-computer interface (BCI) speller was first proposed by Farwell and Donchin, there have been modifications in the visual aspects of P300 paradigms. Most of the changes are based on the original matrix format such as changes in the number of rows and columns, font size, flash/ blank time, and flash order. The improvement in the resulting(More)
Task allocation is an important topic in multiagent and multi-robot teams. In recent years, there has been much research on the use of auction-based methods to provide a distributed approach to task allocation. Team members bid on tasks based on local information, and the allocation is based on these bids. The focus of prior work has been on optimal(More)
As grapheme­to­phoneme methods proliferate, their careful evaluation becomes increasingly important. This paper ex­ plores a variety of metrics to compare the automatic pronunci­ ation methods of three freely­available grapheme­to­phoneme packages on a large dictionary. Two metrics, presented here for the first time, rely upon a novel weighted phonemic(More)
