We report the hexapod microrobot controlled by the bare chip IC of hardware neural networks. MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) technology is used for fabrication of the microrobot. Lead zirconium titanate (PZT) and shape memory alloy (SMA) are used in each actuator, respectively. As the result,...

How to select the appropriate frequency band to classify EEG signal by motor imagery is discussed in this paper. Our proposal is an improvement of the conventional Bayesian Spatio-Spectral Filter Optimization (BSSFO). Defect of BSSFO is on the way to generate the renewal particle of the filter bank,...

A feature-linking mechanism using the synchronized responses of neural assemblies was studied for chaotic cellar neural networks (Chaotic-CNN). Chaotic-CNNs consist of chaotic spike response neurons that show chaotic inter-spike-interval dynamics. In our scheme of feature linking, the features of the...

In this paper a method that discovers socially attracted photographic subjects in real time is proposed. This needs only non-pixel information of a digital photograph for this discovery which include a time of shoot, GPS location where a photograph is taken, a bearing of the shoot and so on. Thinformation...

A DSSN model is a neuron model which is designed to be implemented efficiently by digital arithmetic circuit. In our previous study, we expanded this model to support the neuronal activities of several cortical and thalamic neurons; Regular spiking, fast spiking, intrinsically bursting and low-threshold...

Currently, the rapid development of non-industrial robots that are designed with artificial intelligence (AI) methods to improve the robotics system is to have them imitate human thinking and behavior. Therefore, our works have focused on studying and investigating the application of brain-inspired technology...

We have been developing a method for analyzing the facial expressions of a person using a video phone system (Skype) to talk to another person. The video is recorded and analyzed by image processing software (OpenCV) and the newly proposed feature vector of facial expression. The newly proposed facial...

In this paper, we investigate multi-dimensional computational model, k-neighborhood template A-type three-dimensional bounded cellular acceptor on four-dimensional tapes, and discuss some basic properties. This model consists of a pair of a converter and a configuration-reader. The former...

The current manuscript reviews the literature associated with corporate strategy, and proposes a new approach of acceleration to measure momentum based on limited cycle theory. Thus, this research manuscript makes a contribution to extant thought by: 1) Defining momentum, 2) Discussing the nature of...
