Multimodal human-computer interaction combining multiple input modalities is the key for permitting our highly skilled and coordinated communicative behavior to control computer systems in flexible and natural manner. In this paper a multimodal interaction platform, called Manitou, is presented. The platform empowers researchers and developers to employ(More)
Current mobile devices evolve quickly and bring more powerful hardware to users. However, rate of such development surpasses advances in creation more durable batteries. Although energy awareness of mobile devices is utmost important, the significance of results of energy consumption modeling drops rapidly due to never-ending massive release of new mobile(More)
Small Cell Cloud (SCC) consists of Cloud-enabled Small Cells (CeSCs), which serve as radio end-points for mobile user equipments (UEs) and host computation offloaded from mobile UEs. SCC hereby brings advantages of a centralized cloud computation to the users' vicinity. The SCC architecture provides a mechanism for distribution of computation demand across(More)
Mobile voice-assisted services are currently experiencing strong growth. However, occasionally low real-time quality of service within mobile networks could have significant negative impact on quality of experience of users interacting with automated voice services. Latency may grow to unacceptable levels and speech recognition and synthesis might suffer.(More)
Advances in voice-recognition platforms have led to new possibilities in deploying automated voice-interactive engines for Web content. We present Voice2Web, an architecture allowing to manage access to the resources of the World Wide Web using voice interaction. It rests on the VoiceXML standard and enables rapid composition of dynamic services querying(More)
Understanding how antibiotics inhibit bacteria can help to reduce antibiotic use and hence avoid antimicrobial resistance – yet few theoretical models exist for bacterial growth inhibition by a clinically relevant antibiotic treatment regimen. In particular, in the clinic, antibiotic treatment is time dependent. Here, we use a recently-developed model to(More)
With the advances in voice recognition and synthesis, voice-interactive applications are reaching the mass mobile market. However, creating, deploying or managing context-rich voice-driven applications is complicated due to the scattered and highly diverse nature of specific pieces of software, tools and skills required for a complete system solution. To(More)
Voice modality has a great potential to enrich standard WWW user experience, offer higher efficiency and overcome limits of visually impaired users. However, creating voice driven applications is currently complicated due to requirements of specific software and skills. To overcome this, we propose a novel architecture for large scale development and(More)
