The systems that we have discussed so far cover the first two stages of the collaboration management cycle (Figure 1), described at the beginning of this paper. We now turn to a discussion of systems in which the locus of processing (and the responsibility for analyzing the interaction) gradually shifts from the user to the system. These systems not only analyze, but also “diagnose” the student interaction in an attempt to deduce or infer where the students might be having trouble. This is generally done by internally comparing the current state of interaction to a model of ideal, or productive, interaction. The main challenges present during this process are (a) defining, as best possible, the model of desired interaction, and (b) designing algorithms that measure the degree to which the current model of interaction meets the requirements of the desired model, which may be uncertain or unstable. The result of the comparison in these systems is not displayed to the users, but instead used later by a coaching agent, or analyzed by researchers in an effort to understand and explain the interaction.
Pneumatic actuators are analogous to hydraulic actuators, except that compressed gas, instead of a liquid, is used to generate force. These functioning the same way as the hydraulic actuators where the piston is pushed out from one side of a chamber by air (instead of liquid) that is pumped inside the chamber through the other side. Since the source of input is air, pneumatic actuators are capable of being used in many places of mechanical activity . This concept of bringing motion by use of air or gas under pressure gave rise to the Modular Pneumatic Façade System (MPFS). The MPFS is a kinetic façade system which combines features of biological design (e.g., robustness, modularity, hierarchical design, and kinetic proofreading) and smart technology (e.g., sensor, material, control, and actuation) in order to build a dynamic façade that acts in response to its environment (Figs. 10) .
The continued reduction in transistor feature sizes has led to a paradigm shift in advanced micro processor design. Instead of further increasing the clock speed and the number of transistors within a single processor, multiple cores, each comprising a smaller number of transistors, are now integrated on a single die. The main driver hereby is the increased power efficiency. However, as a result, on-chip and off-chip communication is becoming increasingly the bottleneck in sustaining the performance growth foreseen by the International Semiconductor Roadmap (www.itrs.net). A total data rate of 50-100TB/s is expected by 2015 and more than double that by 2022, with a maximum allowed power consumption of 0.1 to 1pJ/bit . At this moment there is no known technology (neither using electrical connects, neither using other types of interconnects) that can fulfil this requirement. For that reason several groups worldwide are now investigating the possibility of using an optical interconnect network to replace off-chip interconnects and maybe even the long range on-chip interconnects. Although free space communication has been investigated intensively in the past almost all current work now focuses on guided wave solutions. Solutions using VCSEL arrays and multimode waveguides are rapidly maturing and may be introduced in the coming years for board level interconnects . However, such solutions are not compatible with on-chip optical interconnect. Therefore, approaches using silicon nanophotonic waveguides as the optical backbone are now heavily studied. Different network topologies have been proposed, going from circuit switched networks  up to fully interconnected crossbar networks [4-7]. Nevertheless, the basic components from which these networks are built up are rather generic. In most cases wavelength division multiplexing is used for increasing either the capacity or the flexibility of the network. Therefore transmitters capable of generating data at multiple wavelengths, wavelength routing and switching circuits and wavelength selective detectors are required. In this paper we
Reformulated on these terms, Marcuse’s argument suggests a quite definite future for technology under socialism. Technical disciplines and technologies would be constrained by values related not just to profitability but more broadly to human and natural needs recognized in political debate. The emergence of these new constraints should not be conceived as obstacles but as opportunities. The capacity for innovation would be challenged by these political demands much as it is challenged today by market demands. The situation Marcuse foresaw is anticipated by the regulation of technology where it imposes life-affirming standards independent of the market. This is already the case in relation to environmental and medical standards to an ever increasing degree. Socialism would represent a shift in the balance toward far more extensive regulation based on far more democratic procedures.
In order to evaluate state-of-the-art models (both symbolic and embedding-based), different datasets are used. However, it is not clear that a model that performs well on one certain dataset will transfer well to other datasets with different properties. The work we describe in this paper aims at discovering if there are certain models that generally perform better or if there are certain models that are better adapted to certain kinds of datasets. Ultimately, the goal of this paper is to contribute to the current situation by supporting the choice of a method for novel domains and datasets, based on properties of the task at hand.
constructive and intellectual internal dialogue can take place while making or using the technology itself (the idea of making as thinking) and that is the case even with the formative ideas which I have mentioned above. But again, the sophistication and productivity of that dialogue, I argue, needs to draw upon other learning, experiences and intellectual activities which have preceeded the process of making, or at least take place at some distance from them. The better the quality and diversity of these inputs which may have very little technological dimension to them, the better the internal dialogue and the better the ﬁnal
This allows a shared understanding across the organization and can align decision making with regards to future product lines. Selecting which technologies to include in the product roadmap poses a complex challenge; the challenge is similar to that of alignment between the TRLs and the development process milestones, but it adds another dimension – not only do developers need to decide if technologies are mature enough for the product currently under development, but they need to think ahead to future product lines, and ensure that appropriate technologies that match the expected market and technical needs will be available for those products. When should an organization consider a technology ready for a future product in its roadmap?

Figure 4 demonstrates, Ternary current mode Exclusive OR (TCMXOR) based on mentioned Technology. It1s function in Ternary logic is shown in Table 1. The input currents (a and b), have to be converted to voltage separately one again. Because, taking branches from the input currents is not possible due to the kirchhoff's current law [12, 19]. In CML, currents must be mirrored whenever another copy is required (Figure 4).
This paper describes about tactile sensors, its transduction methods, state-of-art and various application areas of these sensors. Here we are taking in consideration the sense of touch. This provides the robots with tactile perception. In most of the robotic application the sense of touch is very helpful. The ability of robots to touch and feel the object, grasping an object by controlled pressure, mainly to categorize the surface textures. Tactile sensors can measure the force been applied on an area of touch. The data which is interpreted from the sensor is accumulated by the array of coordinated group of touch sensors. The sense of touch in human is distributed in four kinds by tactile receptors: Meissner corpuscles, the Merkel cells, the Rufina endings, and the Pacinian corpuscles. There has many innovations done to mimic the behaviour of human touch. The contact forces are measured by the sensor and this data is used to determine the manipulation of the robot.
There are a variety of hanging systems used to suspend textile tapestries and rugs. These include sleeve casings of twill tape sewn onto the verso top side of the art; self-made loops for rods; couching and tacking the entire piece to a reinforced backing ; and Velcro . The currently preferred conservation method of using Velcro came into favor during the 1980s and replaced the older sleeve casing version previously used by many textile conservators.
This work studied the current state of cryptocurrencies with emphasis on the prominent Bitcoin. Thereby, its related concepts and underlying technology were outlined. Bitcoin enables a decentralized network where no trusted author- ity controls transactions and data. However, the currency struggles with technical challenges and limitations. Various approaches to solve these issues through alternative curren- cies were proposed. Drawing from dispersed knowledge re- sources, Ethereum was identified to be the most promising to improve Bitcoin. Ethereum does not only serve as a digi- tal currency, but also provides a decentralized platform, en- abling the creation of smart contracts with applications in numerous fields. The short display of these applications and its effects, fueled by the blockchain technology, has shown its potential to transform the internet, leading to the rise of the Web 3.0. Not only will the digital world be affected by this technology, but also many other aspects in life. Based on the model of the TS, it was demonstrated how smart contracts could be implemented in distributed computing systems to deploy an individualized remuneration system.
