There's a widely known need to revise current forms of healthcare provision. Of particular interest are sensing systems in the home, which have been central to several studies. This article presents an overview of this rapidly growing body of work, as well as the implications for machine learning, with an aim of uncovering the gap between the state of the(More)
This paper outlines the Sensor Platform for HEalthcare in Residential Environment (SPHERE) project and details the SPHERE challenge that will take place in conjunction with European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery (ECML-PKDD) between March and July 2016. The SPHERE challenge is an activity recognition(More)
AAL platforms for health and care purposes are designed to be used by diverse stakeholders, such as household residents, carers and healthcare professionals, with equally diverse needs. Reducing the latency of such systems is key to achieving a positive user experience, as well as enabling appropriate responses to critical incidents. This paper introduces a(More)

Abstract The Sparta aquifer in Union County, Arkansas has served as an important potable water supply to the public and industrial sectors in the area.(More)
The nonlinear Schrodinger equations (NLSE) with several potentials are simulated and analyzed in details. A family of self-similar quantum solutions, which can be described as solitons, are found in the nonlinear medium. It is indicated that the density of state described the nonlinear Schrodinger equations always has stable state with different state(More)
The noble material platinum nitride (PtN) was studied by means of first-principle calculations. The electronic and optical properties were calculated in order to learn the peculiar characterize of this compound. The platinum nitride has the rock-salt structure which can only been synthesized in the laboratories. There must be some special hybridization(More)
