Consumer Behavior Situational Influences Situational influences on consumer behavior outlet selection Shopping is an activity that everyone in the world participates in, but what exactly is it? Is a store necessary for shopping to take place? What motivates someone to shop?
Bellovin, Jason Nieh Email privacy is of crucial importance. Existing email encryption approaches are comprehensive but seldom used due to their complexity and inconvenience. We take a new approach to simplify email encryption and improve its usability by implementing receiver-controlled encryption: To avoid the problem of users having to move a single private key between devices, we implement per-device key pairs: Compromising an email account or email server only provides access to encrypted emails.
Mail, has acceptable overhead, and that users consider it intuitive and easy to use. On the one hand, some people claim it can be accomplished safely; others dispute that. In an attempt to make progress, a National Academies study committee propounded a framework to use when analyzing proposed solutions.
Robot Learning in Simulation for Grasping and Manipulation Beatrice Liang Teaching a robot to acquire complex motor skills in complicated environments is one of the most ambitious problems facing roboticists today.
Grasp planning is a subset of this problem which can be solved through complex geometric and physical analysis or computationally expensive data driven analysis. As grasping problems become more difficult, building analytical models becomes challenging.
Consequently, we aim to learn a grasping policy through a simulation-based data driven approach. POS uses a novel priority-based scheduling algorithm that naturally considers partial order information dynamically, and guarantees that each partial order will be explored with significant probability.
This probabilistic guarantee of error detection is exponentially better than state-of-the-art sampling approaches.
Besides theoretical guarantees, POS is extremely simple and lightweight to implement. In our design, an elastic lens array is placed on top of a sparse, rigid array of pixels. This lens array is then stretched using a small mechanical motion in order to change the field of view of the system.
We present in this paper the characterization of such a system and simulations which demonstrate the capabilities of stretchcam. We follow this with the presentation of images captured from a prototype device of the proposed design.
Our prototype system is able to achieve 1. To manage an IoT device, the user first needs to join it to an existing network.
Then, the IoT device has to be authenticated by the user. The authentication process often requires a two-way communication between the new device and a trusted entity, which is typically a hand- held device owned by the user.Climate Change.
One of the world’s most pressing challenges is climate change: the need to radically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while continuing to enable economic development worldwide, is a combination that requires innovative action. Complexity characterises the behaviour of a system or model whose components interact in multiple ways and follow local rules, meaning there is no reasonable higher instruction to define the various possible interactions..
The term is generally used to characterize something with many parts where those parts interact with each other in multiple ways, culminating in a higher order of emergence.
BCG’s 16th annual study of the global wealth management industry offers a comprehensive analysis of market size, the keys to profitability, and the tough choices that institutions confront today.
Abstract. Project management and business analysis are in fact two disciplines that are becoming more and more strategic for many companies. Project management focuses on the creation of the “product, service, or result” of the project in order to meet its objectives.
