Industrial Power Management Utility Using LabVIEW

Industrial Power Management Utility Using LabVIEW

ABSTRACT:In this paper, it proposes to monitor industrial power data and power management using a LabVIEW application. An industrial application can be done using a remote control in today’s world. LabVIEW is one of the useful and easy development software to monitor and control the industrial system. This LabVIEW stands for laboratory Instrumentation Engineering Workbench. It is the G programming language. Irrespective of good experience in a programming language, LabVIEW is very easy and user-friendly. By using LabVIEW its ease to communicate with an external real-world signal, as well as one can process this data in programming can produce a result as required. Using this user-friendly software one can design very easy, simple and graphical Human Machine Interface which can be interfaced with external hardware through communication protocol too.

An efficient and user-friendly tool for machine translation quality estimation

An efficient and user-friendly tool for machine translation quality estimation

Q U E ST has recently been benchmarked on a number of datasets (Shah et al., 2013b; Shah et al., 2013a). To make this paper self-contained, we provide exper- iments with models trained offline which are already available through the Web interface. We also present figures in terms of the running time of our models. Our experiments include two language pairs, i.e., French-English and German-English, and two differ- ent tasks: absolute quality scores prediction and rank- ing of up to five translation options. The data used and results for these tasks are given in Tables 1 and 2. For both tasks, a set of 17 well established baseline features was used. 3 The language models and other re-

View of Non-user-friendly

View of Non-user-friendly

Stiegler defines films and songs as tem- poral objects because they are constituted by the time of their passing. The interface is also a temporal object, but it supplants the looped temporality of cinema with continuous change and never-ending updates. As the flux of human consciousness is intertwined with that of the interface, they remain in a reciprocal relationship, in passage together, affecting one another and adapting to each other. Stiegler has recently admitted that while the new, interactive screen could be “a threat, enacted through the mediation of the fully computational and automated system,” it could also “constitute a chance, an opportunity to renew commentary, to reconnect with the ‘gloss,’ through a com- pletely rethought hermeneutics” (Stiegler, The Neganthropocene 173). To live a vita activa, he argues, we must hold on “to the promise of a new hermeneutic epoch borne by these screens” (174). Non-user-friendly design could realize that promise by embrac- ing interpassivity, uncovering a gap between human and machine feeling. To be deemed successful, the experience of non-interaction must interrupt the illusion of control and per- sonalization, create an opening that divulges our very technicity.

A Model of Scientists’ Information Seeking and a User-Interface Design

A Model of Scientists’ Information Seeking and a User-Interface Design

However, with the huge amount of data that is available today (which is growing exponentially) and the indifference shown by typical users toward the phrasing of their search queries (Hemminger et al. 2007, Markey 2007b, and CIBER/UCL 2008, among others), many searches in the scholarly environment generate a large number of results, thus decreasing the findability of items that are not at the top of the list. A purely linear presentation of so many results is inadequate, despite the use of sophisticated relevance-ranking algorithms to prioritize the result list. When applied to scholarly materials, these algorithms are questionable in that they lack the context in which the query was defined and hence cannot assist the system in tailoring the presentation of the results to the specific person’s needs. A further problem is that relevance-ranking algorithms alone cannot bridge the gap between a user’s intended query and the way in which the user phrases it.

exPIERience

This mode can be described as an “on-rails” experience. That is, the user is following a set movement path that they are not able to deviate from, but are still able to look around in all directions for the full VR experience. Other aspects of interactivity can be added in, such as optional information about what the user is seeing, or video options like pause and rewind. This mode is essentially a playback system of video runs our GoPro system captures in a dive underneath the pier. It is contingent on capturing good video runs during the dive, and being able to faithfully stitch high-quality spherical (360) videos for playback. The Oculus Rift development API has tools for spherical video playback, and they are what we expect to utilize here.

A VERSATILE, USER FRIENDLY CHROMATOGRAPHY

A VERSATILE, USER FRIENDLY CHROMATOGRAPHY

This article describes the problems associated with usage of large quantities of solvents in preparative chromatography and highlights the importance of usage of green solvents. It emphasizes the usage of supercritical fluid as green solvent in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) which is more versatile, more cost-efficient, user friendly, with higher throughput, better resolution and faster analysis than the other general liquid chromatographic methods. The instrumentation that is required for supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is versatile because of its multi-detector compatibility. Due to this, supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) has formed a niche in the pharmaceutical industry. The present article also reviews the fundamentals, instrumentation and varied applications of supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) in the analytical area.

Principles of Explanatory Debugging to personalize interactive machine learning

Principles of Explanatory Debugging to personalize interactive machine learning

Balanced against the soundness and completeness principles is the need to remain comprehensible and to engage user attention. Findings from [23] suggest that one way to engage user attention is to frame explanations concretely, such as referencing the predicted item and any evidence the learning system employed in its prediction. In some circumstances, selecting a more comprehensible machine learning model may also be appropriate. For example, a neural network can be explained as if it were a decision tree [9], but this reduces soundness because a di ff erent model is explained. Similarly, a model with 10,000 features can be explained as if it only used the 10 most discriminative features for each prediction, but this reduces completeness by omitting information that the model uses. Alternative approaches that embody the Ex- planatory Debugging principles include selecting a machine learning model that can be explained with little abstraction [e.g., 25, 35, 36] or using feature selection techniques [44] in high-dimensionality domains to prevent users from struggling to identify which features to adjust (as happened in [24]).

Evaluation of IR User interface – Implications for User Interface Design

Evaluation of IR User interface – Implications for User Interface Design

studies of the user interface design (Belkin, Marchetti and Cool, 1993 and Brajnik, Mizarro and Tasso, 1996) have made interesting contribution within the broader context. This notion of integrating both system- and user-based studies, including the importance of the user interface, calls for an interdisciplinary research approach. The traditional IR model has mainly been concerned with improving the effectiveness of automatic searching techniques, such as precision and recall, and has been criticised for not taking issues like cognitive 1 and interactive aspects (Saracevic, 1995 and 1996; Ingwersen, 1996) into consideration. One attempt to develop the traditional IR model is made by Peter Ingwersen in his cognitive model (1996), (Figure 1). IR interaction is viewed as a set of cognitive processes, which involves system characteristics

A model of scientists' information seeking and a user-interface design

A model of scientists' information seeking and a user-interface design

Kaki (2005) describes a study that explored how faceted categorization is used in real settings (as opposed to an earlier study that was a controlled experiment) and how beneficial it is to users. A Web-based search interface called Findex was provided to 16 users for two months, for any use that the users had in mind. The findings of this study show that in 25% of their searches, users took advantage of the categories displayed alongside the result lists to find relevant results. On average, 2.3 categories were selected per search process. Participants reported that the categories were most useful when queries were general, broad, or vague, such as those that characterize exploratory searches; the ranking algorithm failed to display the required items at the top of the list, but the categories helped users find results nevertheless. Evidence also shows that the use of categories

• The planner is assumed to possess the resources (time and memory) required to use this model to reason about the possible worlds associated with the different courses of action that might be pursued. Planning is, in general, an intractable problem. And, if the world is complex then modeling the world may also be intractable. This assumption is simply a warning to restrict the research to tractable planning domains. The desktop domain, at the first impression may seem tractable as long as there is a single application to be controlled, but it soon becomes quite complex with today’s multi-tasking, multi-user and increasingly complex user interfaces.

The SocioMetricVis : Giving feedback during a brainstorm

The SocioMetricVis : Giving feedback during a brainstorm

There are also look-a-likes of the Sociometric Badge. Second messenger is a simple version of a sociometric feedback system. The idea is to limit social factors, which can prevent the user from realizing their potential. The platform provides feedback to groups by means of a visual display of participation levels and turn-taking patterns during face-to-face meetings or afterwards in the form of a visual replay. Unlike the Sociometric Badge, Second Messenger only uses noise-cancelling microphones to measure speaking patterns. The different coloured circles represent different users and the size of the circle reflects the participation of the person. This can be seen in figure 5. The researchers tested how they could make the visualisation as unobtrusive as possible, test users reported that they did not think that the visualisation was distracting and would use it again [17].

Image Processing and Particle Analysis for Road Traffic Detection

Image Processing and Particle Analysis for Road Traffic Detection

In metropolitan cities, especially in overpopulated countries like India, control and regulation of traffic is a very crucial detail to ensure safety for commuters. A recent boom in vehicular numbers just elevates this problem. It is imperative that appropriate measures be taken to curb this problem or at least develop a system to be precise enough to reduce it to a great extent, while decreasing human effort at the same time. The approach in this article focusses on methods of image processing and computer vision using pre-defined modules of pattern analysis and image filtering with a user-friendly interface for data calibration. This real-time system is based on stationary video cameras connected to computers/processing devices.
