Trigeminal Neuralgia and Radiofrequency Lesioning

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a disorder that is characterized with electrical-type shocking pain in the face and jaw. This pain may either present as sharp unbearable pain unilateral or bilaterally. There is no definite etiology for this condition. There are various treatment methods that are currently being used to relieve the

Design of a Novel Servo-Motorized Laser Device for Visual Pathways Diseases Therapy

We discuss a novel servo-motorized laser device and a research protocol for visual pathways diseases therapies. The proposed servo-mechanized laser device can be used for potential rehabilitation of patients with hemianopia, quadrantanopia, scotoma, and some types of cortical damages. The device uses a semi spherical structure where the visual stimulus

Generative Learning Objects Instantiated with Random Numbers Based Expressions

The development of interactive e-learning content requires special skills like programming techniques, web integration, graphic design etc. Generally, online educators do not possess such skills and their e-learning products tend to be static like presentation slides and textbooks. In this paper we propose a new interactive model of generative learning objects as a

Business Process Management – a Traditional Approach Versus a Knowledge Based Approach

The enterprise management represents a heterogeneous aggregate of both resources and assets that need to be coordinated and orchestrated in order to reach the goals related to the business mission. Influences and forces that may influence this process, and also for that they should be considered, are not concentrated in the business environment,

Early Warning of Heat/Cold Waves as a Smart City Subsystem: a Retrospective Case Study of Non-Anticipative Analog Methodology

In this paper, the self-organizing inductive methodology is applied for the non-anticipative analog forecasting of the heat/cold waves in the natural environment subsystem of the smart city. The prediction algorithm is described by two paradigms. First one (short range) uses quantum computing formalism. D-Wave adiabatic quantum computing Ising model is

Gestalt Processing in Human-Robot Interaction: a Novel Account for Autism Research

The paper presents a novel analysis focused on showing that education is possible through robotic enhancement of the Gestalt processing in children with autism, which is not comparable to alternative educational methods such as demonstration and instruction provided solely by human tutors. The paper underlines the conceptualization of cognitive processing

Secondary Structure Prediction of Protein Using Resilient Back Propagation Learning Algorithm

The paper proposes a neural network based approach to predict secondary structure of protein. It uses Multilayer Feed Forward Network (MLFN) with resilient back propagation as the learning algorithm. Point Accepted Mutation (PAM) is adopted as the encoding scheme and CB396 data set is used for the training and testing

Realizing an Optimization Approach Inspired from Piaget’s Theory on Cognitive Development

The objective of this paper is to introduce an artificial intelligence based optimization approach, which is inspired from Piaget’s theory on cognitive development. The approach has been designed according to essential processes that an individual may experience while learning something new or improving his / her knowledge. These processes are associated with the

Exploring User Engagement in Information Networks: Behavioural – Based Navigation Modelling, Ideas and Directions

Revealing an endless array of user behaviors in an online environment is a very good indicator of the user’s interests either in the process of browsing or in purchasing. One such behavior is the navigation behavior, so detected user navigation patterns are able to be used for practical purposes such
