James Reinders (Chief Evangelist of Intel® Software at Intel) and Jim Jeffers (Principal Engineer at Intel) have gathered in this book the working knowledge of the people involved to prototype and productize the Intel® Xeon Phi coprocessor. This include the experience of Intel’s Product, Field, Application and Technical Consulting Engineers, as well as key partners involved on product pre-release work.
This dissertation formalizes a comprehensive approach based on compiler technology to simulate some basic forms of automata viz., finite accepters, finite transducers, pushdown accepters and Turing machines. These basic forms of automata are known for their simplicity and generality, hence widely studied and used in research.

Most unsupervised indigenous knowledge (IK) are known to be very useful in combating critical health issues as well as being dangerous if the administration is abused. Despite the fact that these locally prepared herbal medicine are not encouraged to be used by the citizenry for known reasons, some people in our localities still use these products and testify to their usefulness. If there is awareness on the true sources of this indigenous knowledge with the dosage not exceeded, these products will be helpful in combating some critical health issues where orthodox medicine fails. It will also be helpful to the...

The introduction of mobile wireless devices brings unique challenges for distribution of data to many devices simultaneously. An optimizing multicast methodology called Probabilistic Multicast Trees (PMT) is extended to handle mobile wireless devices. We will show that PMT multiple tree multicast system is well suited to this mobile dynamic environment

Music education should start from an early age. Theories of child development and learning emphasize the importance of manipulating physical objects. Music learning and teaching has traditionally been carried out mainly by visual and auditory activities. With this in mind, we combine music learning with tangible interfaces to stimulate senses toward music in children over six years old. We present a token+constraint tangible interface for children to learn musical skills such as musical notes, rhythm and the sound of different instruments. The work describes a low-cost tangible interface addressed to children that allows learning music in an intuitive, incremental and...

The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) defines the guidelines to facilitate access for people with disabilities to ICT. This article presents a proposal to promote the unification and improvement of the works of two authors, combining the procedures and considerations after the evaluation of some web sites Northeast Argentina (NEA).

The growth in the use of gesture-based interaction in video games has highlighted the potential for the use of such interaction method for a wide range of applications. This paper presents the implementation of an enhanced model for gesture recognition as input method for software applications. The model uses Support Vector Machines (SVM) and Finite State Machines (FSM) and the implementation was based on a Kinect R device. The model uses data input based on Cartesian coordinates. The use of Cartesian coordinates enables more ﬂexibility to generalise the use of the model to different applications, when compared to related work...

Based on our experience, in this paper we present the main aspects of two different approaches to implement low cost multi-touch tables: projection based and LCD based. The former uses a video projector to build a feedback image on the surface of a multi-touch table and the latter uses an LCD display for the same purpose. We discuss the main advantages and disadvantages we have faced during our design and building experiences

Data sharing and especially enabling third parties to build new services using large amounts of shared data is clearly a trend for the future and a main driver for innovation. However, sharing data is a challenging and involved process today: The owner of the data wants to maintain full and immediate control on what can be done with it, while users are interested in offering new services which may involve arbitrary and complex processing over large volumes of data. Currently, flexibility in building applications can only be achieved with public or non-sensitive data, which is released without restrictions. In contrast,...
