Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of dis-aggregating a household's total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an approach by which individual appliances can be iteratively separated from an aggregate load. Unlike existing approaches, our approach does not require training data to be(More)
Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of disaggregating a household's total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an unsupervised training method for non-intrusive monitoring which, unlike existing supervised approaches, does not require training data to be collected by sub-metering individual(More)
Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of breaking down a house-hold's total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an approach by which individual appliances are iteratively separated from the aggregate load.

In this demonstration, we present a scalable low-cost solution to provide personalized home heating advice to house-holds. Our solution uses a specially designed USB temperature logger, placed on top of the thermostat, to infer the operation of the heating system indirectly. Using additional external temperature data, available through the internet, it(More)
Curcumin, an active ingredient in the traditional herbal remedy and dietary spice turmeric (Curcuma longa), has significant anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic kidney disease (CKD), an inflammatory disease, can lead to end stage renal disease resulting in dialysis and transplant. Furthermore, it is frequently associated with other inflammatory disease(More)
Association between circulating lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and metabolic diseases (such as Type 2 Diabetes and atherosclerosis) has shifted the focus from Western diet-induced changes in gut microbiota per se to release of gut bacteria-derived products into circulation as the possible mechanism for the chronic inflammatory state underlying the development of(More)
Tumor growth is influenced by a wide variety of external and internal factors. One of the most important mediators of tumor development is our immune system. The nonstop surveillance of the immune system was originally expected to clear the transformed cells from the body and guard against the development of tumor. But contradictory evidences are reported(More)
E-Governance is the public sector's use of information and communication technologies with the aim of improving information and service delivery, encouraging citizen participation in the decision-making process and making government more accountable, transparent and effective. Effective and efficient e-Governments deploy Information and Communication(More)
Macrophage colony stimulating factor (MCSF) regulates growth, proliferation and differentiation of haematopoietic cell lineages. Many cancers are known to secrete high level of MCSF, which recruit macrophages into the tumour micro-environment, supporting tumour growth. Herein, we report the cloning of MCSF and subsequent generation of U87MG expressing MCSF(More)
