Genome annotations are accumulating rapidly and depend heavily on automated annotation systems. Many genome centers offer annotation systems but no one has compared their output in a systematic way to determine accuracy and inherent errors. Errors in the annotations are routinely deposited in databases such as NCBI and used to validate subsequent annotation(More)
NOTICE This technical report does not necessarily represent final EPA decisions or positions. It is intended to present technical analysis of issues using data which are currently available. The purpose in the release of such reports is to facilitate the exchange of technical information and to inform the public of technical developments which may form the(More)
— In this contribution, we look at technology transfer in robotics. Generally, there is a delay between a science-push and a market-pull. In order of finding means to decrease this lag, we are going to look at the causes of this effect and at the means for improving technology transfer. For this purpose, we use a variety of data sources which shed light on(More)
— In this contribution the authors examine robotics research itself. We look at the data which the European funded ECHORD project (European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development) generated. The project began in January 2009 with the ambitious goal of bringing together European robotics manufacturers with the European research institutions and it(More)
At work and at leisure people perform various visual search tasks, e.g. they search for a particular icon in software tools, on Web sites or on mobile phones. With an increasing number of items, visual search becomes difficult. Recently, it has been suggested that the so-called con-textual cueing effect, which is known from psychological experiments, can be(More)
