Abstract— During interactions of embedded systems in robots, thousands of transistors may be active at once, even though only one computational process is underway to achieve a target simultaneous goal. The challenge this presents to the task of intelligent agent systems has spawned increasing interest in agent complex concurrent event processing techniques and optimizing synchronous processes.

This paper will provide an examination of simultaneous agent event handling literature, which assesses the agent’s ability to keep two events going on at once. Literature in this area has largely focused on issues common to specific subareas such as Markov decision processes (MDPs), actions in a special kind of decision problem known as the semiMarkov decision process, or SMDP and robotics. In this review, these subareas will be explored through examining various approaches to simultaneous events handling, eventbased triggering processes, concurrent action modeling, and grasp and control transport algorithm.

Abstract— This review paper is based on the real world applications of various microcontrollers in the field of pacemakers. The study conducted is based on various factors such as cost, power consumption, power saving, reliability, efficiency etc.

These features differentiate each microcontroller from the other. The goal of this study is to study each microcontroller that are being employed in the field of pacemakers and based on the observations; we can find the best alternative to the presently used microcontrollers. That means, finding a microcontroller which will function as a close substitute to the presently used microcontroller. The microcontrollers which showed similar characteristics to the ones presently being used are suggested to be used for serving the purpose of real time embedded pacemakers and related applications.

Abstract - Images has become an essential role in diagnosis the diseases especially the Magnetic Resonance

Imaging(MRI). However, used(MRI)that diagnosis Alzheimer's disease is still remains a challenge, especially in the early stages, when the disease offers more chances to be treated. In this paper we present medical images diagnosis for

Alzheimer's disease using different thresholding techniques.

The used method is Otsu method ,because it is one of the most effective thresholding techniques for most real world images with regard to uniformity and shape measures. Our experiments will be as a test to determine which technique is effective in thresholding (extraction) atrophy neurons in the brain, and in the future these techniques can be very useful in detection other diseases .

1. Look and Feel: iOS 6 to iOS 7

Hiedi Utley, Engin Kurutepe, Michael Ang, Josh Brown, Doron Katz, Cody Ray Bleeding Edge Press ePub

With iOS 7, Apple has adopted a new focus on content, depth, and clarity. iOS 7 has also totally changed the way views and controls look and feel. If you were around for the change from iOS 5 to iOS 6, you may remember that the changes to look and feel were relatively insignificant. That's most certainly not the case when going from iOS 6 to iOS 7. Some things are the same, but with iOS 7 a lot has changed especially in the appearance of buttons, labels, sliders, switches, segmented controls, alerts, and more. We'll take a look at the overall changes and what you'll want to do to make your iOS 6 apps feel at home on iOS 7. Then we'll see what's required for iOS 7. And lastly, we'll discuss what you need to do in your apps to support both iOS 6 and iOS 7.

Content, depth, and clarity are Apple's little words to describe major changes in iOS 7. When developing apps for iOS 7, the focus should be on the content, rather than on frivolous gradients, textures, and other visual effects. Apps should have depth, giving the user a better understanding of where they are and how to navigate their app. Content should be clear and easy to interact with when you focus on clarity. In essence, your UI should stay out of the way, give the user a sense of where they are and how to get around, and allow them to interact with the content they care about.

1 Introduction

This paper reports a development and preliminary validation of in-house finite element software for creep damage analysis. Creep damage mechanics has been developed and applied for the analysis of creep deformation and the simulation for the creep damage evolution and rupture of high temperature components [1]. The computational capability relies on the availability of a computational tool and a set of creep damage constitutive equations which can accurately depicts the complex phenomena. This paper addresses the former.

Abstract— As high performance computing systems continually become faster, the operating cost to run these systems has increased. A significant portion of the operating costs can be attributed to the amount of energy required for these systems to operate. To reduce these costs it is important for system administrators to operate these systems in an energyefficient manner. To help facilitate a transition to energyefficient computing, the trade-offs between system performance and system energy consumption must be analyzed and understood. We analyze these trade-offs through bi-objective resource allocation techniques, and in this paper we explore an analysis approach to help system administrators investigate these trade-offs. Additionally, we show how system administrators can perform “what-if” analyses to evaluate the effects of adding or removing machines from their high performance computing systems. We perform our study using three environments based on data collected from real machines and real applications. We show that by utilizing different resource allocations we are able to significantly change the performance and energy consumption of a given system, providing a system administrator with the means to examine these trade-offs to help make intelligent decisions regarding the scheduling and composition of their systems.

New Paradigms for Software Application Development:

Software architectures and component-based development

Sergio David Villarreal, Guillermo Villasana, Juan Carlos Lavariega

Abstract In recent years several technologies and programming languages have appeared for developing software systems. Each one provides advantages and specific implementations to business applications. However, traditional approaches are still in use in many software projects, and therefore the software code was not initially developed with reuse in mind. This situation leads to delays in delivery times, production costs above budget, and possible generation of incomplete/defective software products. The architectures and the component-based development emerge as alternatives for traditional software development. The challenge is software with and for reuse, and interoperability between different technologies, platforms and applications. This paper provides a description of the component-based development and the uses of software architectures. Also, examples of program technologies that implement these concepts are given such as
