A review of privacy-preserving human and human activity recognition

to hide all the information in big data with cryptography because it is resource constraint and overly complex. Instead, many approaches have chosen to remove the sensitive parts of the information, while at the same time preserving the necessary information for further analysis (Osia et al., 2020). Privacy protection is especially important in the field of dealing with human-related data. Machine learning has widely been applied to the recognition of human and human activity. Human recognition

Human rights and the borders of the human

Introduction Notions of human rights can be a powerful tool in working against the systemic imposition of suffering or harm wrought by patterns of direct and structural violence. They can provide a critical avenue for societies to confront the questions of how we care for each other, how we live together and the impact of entrenched patterns of direct and structural violence (Brown M 2002). But they can also enact forms of the human and the universal which reproduce dominant Eurocentric

Human-Based Sensing Sensor Systems to Complement Human Perception

The approach of human-based sensing is based on the assumption that sensor systems for individual use have optimal performance if coherent with the human perception system. The benefits of complementing the human sensing with sensor systems that strengthen the information and make the human able to perform more adequate and optimized decisions based on the sensor information, will improve the human capability. The arguments for designing sensor systems that increase the human ability in order

ROLE OF MICROBIOTA IN MAINTAINING THE HOMEOSTASIS IN THE HUMAN BODY

The human body is believed to be occupied by around 4 × 1013 microorganism cells, which is 10 times the number of cells of the human body. Multidisciplinary studies conducted worldwide by microbiologists and physicians suggest that the microorganisms which colonize the human body can more actively influence the state of health than previously thought. The most important role in the regulation of the homeostasis is played by ontocenoses of the intestine. Imbalanced taxonomic composition

Transversal borderings: Territory and mobility for human rights activists in the Thai-Burma borderlands

Introduction Saw Kyi1 has been documenting human rights abuses against the Karen for almost two decades. He calls himself a ‘community worker’ and a ‘human rights defender’. While he is a Karen man from Burma2, he has spent most of that time in and around the Thai town of Mae Sot. When I first spoke to him in 2005, he led a fairly transient life. He sometimes lived in Mae Sot, sometimes in Mae La refugee camp, about an hour north of Mae Sot. He was often inside Karen State documenting human

A reliable signal conditioning circuit to acquire human biopotentials

It is well known that every human being is a complex system made up of cells, tissues, organs and organ systems that function together to maintain its health. The coordinated physiological processes maintain most of the steady states in an organism, not at a fixed value, but within a narrow, relatively constant range, known as homeostasis [1]. Recently, a non-invasive measurement of human biopotentials has been proposed in order to provide information about the condition of the human system as

Human platelet antigen allelic diversity in Peninsular Malaysia

Human platelet antigens (HPAs) are polymorphic and immunogenic glycoproteins encoded by biallelic genes on human chromosome 17 (HPA-1 to -4 and HPA-6 to -11), chromosome 5 (HPA-5), and chromosome 6 (HPA-15) and expressed on the surface of platelets. In the present study, we typed seven HPA loci (HPA-1 to -6 and HPA-15) by polymerase chain reaction using sequence-specific primer and sequence-based typing in 166 blood samples representing three Orang Asli groups (Semang, Senoi, and Proto-Malays

CATHELICIDINS IN HUMANS AND ANIMALS

An example of HDPs may be cathelicidins, containing from 12 to 80 amino acid residues and molecular weights ranging from 2 to 80 kDa. Moreover, due to the presence of arginine and lysine residues, HDPs have a positive charge, hence they are also referred to as cationic peptides [7, 18, 28, 36, 42, 56

A Spherical Haptic Interface with Unlimited Workspace

Over the last two decades, various haptic interfaces have been developed. However, their workspace has been mechanically restricted. This limited workspace reduces operationality, because operation should be suspended at the boundary. In this paper, to tackle this problem, a spherical haptic interface is developed, which utilizes a ball as an interface with the human. The ball is driven by three DC motors through omni wheels. Consequently, unlimited workspace is achieved for orientation

INTRODUCTION Image quality assessment deals with the quantitative evaluation of the quality of images and can be widely used in image acquisition, compression, storage, transmission and other image processing systems. Generally, human beings are the ultimate receivers of images. Subjective evaluation by humans is a reliable IQA method, but it is cumbersome and difficult to apply in real-world scenarios. An objective IQA method aims to design mathematical models to automatically measure the

Primary mode of transmission is droplet in close contact (< 1 m), but both viruses remain active in aerosol (up to 24 h), so infection can be also spread by air (ventilation). The

Another common use of CDP is to remove human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) from RBCs to help identify or exclude the presence of antibodies to HLAs expressed

A novel neutrosophic formal concept analysis method has been proposed to quantify non-determinism leading to ambiguity of interpretation and utilize it in activity recognition. The method works by penalizing performance of non-deterministic activities and rewarding the deterministic ones. Thus, non- deterministic activities are identified during testing due to significantly reduced performance and contexts can

The purpose of this study was to document the presence of the pseudogene and determine whether the polymorphic expression of NB1 GP is due to CD177 gene deletions and duplications.

Murine monoclonal antibodies can be used to type RBCs with a positive DAT

RBCs with a positive DAT due to IgG coating require the use of directly agglutinating reagents or treatment with chemicals to remove sufficient IgG to permit typing of the RBCs with antisera that require use of the IAT. In this study we demonstrate that murine IgG MoAbs to human RBC antigens can be used as an alternative if the anti-mouse IgG is neutralized or affinity purified to prevent cross-reaction with cell-bound IgG. We performed DATs on RBC samples coated with IgG in vivo and in vitro

Electrocardiogram for Biometrics by using Adaptive Multilayer Generalized Learning Vector Quantization (AMGLVQ): Integrating Feature Extraction and Classification

Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal for human identity recognition is a new area on biometrics research. The ECG is a vital signal of human body, unique, robustness to attack, universality and permanence, difference to others traditional biometrics technic. This study also proposes Adaptive Multilayer Generalized Learning Vector Quantization (AMGLVQ), that integrating feature extraction and classification method. The experiments shown that AMGLVQ can improve the accuracy of classification better

FROM A COMMENSAL TO A PATHOGEN – TWO FACES OFSTAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS

Staphylococcus epidermidis is a commensal organism and the most abundant constituent of the healthy human skin and mucous membrane microbiota. It is well adapted to colonize and evade human antimicrobial barriers. Staphylococcus epidermidis not only competes with potentially harmful pathogens, but also produces a plethora of proteins supporting host natural defenses. At the same time, Staphylococcus epidermidis is an opportunistic pathogen recognized as one of the leading causes of healthcare

Pathogenic Potential of Fresh, Frozen, and Thermally Treated Anisakis spp. Type II (L3) (Nematoda: Anisakidae) after Oral Inoculation into Wistar Rats: A Histopathological Study

The third-stage (L3) larvae of Anisakis are the etiological agents of human anisakiasis caused by consumption of raw or undercooked seafood infected with anisakid nematodes. Infection with these worms is associated with abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea and can lead to massive infiltration of eosinophils and the formation of granulomas in the gastrointestinal tract if the larvae are not removed. Food allergy affects populations worldwide, and despite several reports on the presence of the
