Evolution Of Models To Predict Protein Function Using Genetic Programming

INTRODUCTIONGenetic Programming (GP) follows the concept put forth by Darwin – “Survival of the Fittest”. Species that evolve and adapt in response to the environment are more likely to survive. GP evolves models that can optimize peptides and proteins for variety of applications. It requires only basic understanding in protein engineering....

Location Based Notifications for a Smartphone

Executive SummaryDifferent surfaces respond to the same vibration differently. Vibration based sensing is a low-cost and effective approach to recognizing different surfaces. Prior methods use custom hardware for creating and sensing vibration, making them difficult to adopt. This method uses the smartphone’s vibrator motor to cause the whole...

Language Learning App Game

Executive SummaryLearning a new language is a difficult journey to undergo; even more so with languages that rely heavily on tone inflection. The Mandarin language in particular alters words in their entirety based on the tone used. For instance the English sound “ma” can mean mother, flax, horse, or to yell depending on the tonal inflection...

System for Identifying Brain Functional Area

Executive SummaryMagnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, has revolutionized non-invasive diagnostic methods used in modern medicine. Furthermore, functional MRI (fMRI) has allowed researchers and technicians to observe neuron activity directly by monitoring blood oxygen levels within small areas of the brain. However, steady states of activity must be established...
