Hello Cabe--Actually, one the problems I had as an underclassman was concentrating on the work at hand. During those days; i.e dark ages, the rule at my school was, a student had to stay live in the dorm until he reached 19 years of age so, I was in the dorm for about 2 years. I discovered quickly, you can't study in a dorm room, too much going on. Now, if I had a device to aid my efforts, such as the one you mentioned, I might have improved my concentration appreciably. Reading minds, I don't think so. Excellent post though and very thought-provoking.
This is a fascinating post and very interesting technology. Junk mail has proliferated and relative to the internet, that translates to SPAM. Environmental SPAM certainly reduces our ability to concentrate. I have no idea as to how many "intrusions" we receive hour by hour; police sirens, individuals passing by, conversations in the "cube farm", unanswered e-mail, etc etc. All provide distractions that take us away from the tasks and to some degree, make us less efficient due to the lack of concentration. I think the technology that Cabe indicates could help reduce the confusion provided the long-term affects are not detrimental. I would ask--how long can an individual stand the process? Is there a time limit? Would the technology make possible an ATC 's concentration for an entire shift? I certainly could have used such a device during finals.
Ah, OK, I understand now, Cabe. So it's like a very sophisticated guessing game that in more cases than not, is correct. Hmm. Well, I guess it could have worth for market research and the like. I suppose we will have to see if it ever gets used.
Yes, I am agree with you, such devices are called regional oximetry, which is very useful for the advancement of clinical practice to improve patient care and safety especially for cardiovascular surgery.
New algorithms will made the distinctive, but all scientific entrepreneurship are welcome!
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
