OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY AND BACKGROUND Schizophrenia is a complex disease that affects 1% of the population. This disease has a considerable impact not only on patients' health and well-being but also on their surrounding environment. The costs of the disease's management remain large for individuals and society. While literature on the economic impact of… (More)
A statistical zero-knowledge authentication scheme is described for security control in on-line database transaction processing systems (OLTP). This scheme uses probabilistic quorum protocols to validate users using their biometrical characteristics (such as speech, handwriting and keyboard characteristics). This authentication scheme can be implemented… (More)
This paper considers the interrelationships between knowledge-based security, concurrency and recoverability in online database transaction processing systems (OLTP). We describe how OLTP can permit the users to carry out the desired actions, and concurrently activate scrutinizing transactions that identify the users with respect to their biometrical or… (More)
The mental state of a person is judged by detecting smiles. The smile detection starts with the facial recognition. The main advantage of the smile detection is it ensures whether smiles are detected by the camera or not. We compare those set of images and determine which image has the best smile. Now, across the mouth region to detect the corners we use… (More)
While transmitting multi or five-sensory information after transduction, the concept of temporal consistency becomes an important issue at the receiving end from the point of view of context. Any violation of temporal consistency among the different decoded sensory information can lead to a failure of context, thereby making the multisensory system… (More)
A cooperating-agents based algorithm is described to detect temporal consistency among sensory events and for constraint processing. We describe the algorithm using an example. Also we describe the cooperative aspects of the agent-based algorithm using an UML activity diagram.
