TL;DR: A real-time algorithm for foreground-background segmentation that can handle scenes containing moving backgrounds or illumination variations, and it achieves robust detection for different types of videos is presented.
Abstract: We present a real-time algorithm for foreground-background segmentation. Sample background values at each pixel are quantized into codebooks which represent a compressed form of background model for a long image sequence. This allows us to capture structural background variation due to periodic-like motion over a long period of time under limited memory. The codebook representation is efficient in memory and speed compared with other background modeling techniques. Our method can handle scenes containing moving backgrounds or illumination variations, and it achieves robust detection for different types of videos. We compared our method with other multimode modeling techniques. In addition to the basic algorithm, two features improving the algorithm are presented-layered modeling/detection and adaptive codebook updating. For performance evaluation, we have applied perturbation detection rate analysis to four background subtraction algorithms and two videos of different types of scenes.
TL;DR: This finding reveals the important role of the SMP components as factors in membrane fouling and flux decline associated with EfOM source waters, and affects the characteristics and amounts of SMP, however, SRT did not affect flux decline trends of RO and NF membranes.
Abstract: Soluble microbial products (SMP), a significant component of effluent organic matter (EfOM), play an important role in membrane fouling and flux decline in wastewater reclamation/reuse applications. The SMP compounds of a microbial origin are derived during biological processes of wastewater treatment. They exhibit the characteristics of hydrophilic organic colloids and macromolecules. These high molecular weight compounds play an important role in creating high resistance of the membrane, leading to a reduction of permeate flux. The SMP fouling of RO, NF, and tight UF membranes is associated with formation of a cake/gel layer due to size (steric) exclusion. FTIR spectra of SMP- and EfOM-fouled membranes exhibited foulants' composition, consisting of polysaccharides, proteins, and/or aminosugar-like compounds. This finding reveals the important role of the SMP components as factors in membrane fouling and flux decline associated with EfOM source waters. Solids retention time (SRT) affects the characteristics and amounts of SMP, however, SRT did not affect flux decline trends of RO and NF membranes.
TL;DR: In this article, a microfluidic sensor is implemented from a single split-ring resonator (SRR), a fundamental building block of electromagnetic metamaterials, which is capable of sensing liquid flowing in the channel with a cross-sectional area as small as (0.001 λ 0 ) 2.
Abstract: A microfluidic sensor is implemented from a single split-ring resonator (SRR), a fundamental building block of electromagnetic metamaterials. At resonance, an SRR establishes an intense electric field confined within a deeply subwavelength region. Liquid flowing in a micro-channel laid on this region can alter the local field distribution and hence affect the SRR resonance behavior. Specifically, the resonance frequency and bandwidth are influenced by the complex dielectric permittivity of the liquid sample. The empirical relation between the sensor resonance and the sample permittivity can be established, and from this relation, the complex permittivity of liquid samples can be estimated. The technique is capable of sensing liquid flowing in the channel with a cross-sectional area as small as (0.001 λ 0 ) 2 , where λ 0 denotes the free-space wavelength of the wave excitation. This work motivates the use of SRR-based microfluidic sensors for identification, classification, and characterization of chemical and biochemical analytes.
TL;DR: The terahertz metamaterials are artificial composites that acquire their electromagnetic properties from embedded subwavelength metallic structures and can be engineered to take on arbitrary values, including those not appearing in nature.
Abstract: Metamaterials are artificial composites that acquire their electromagnetic properties from embedded subwavelength metallic structures. In theory, the effective electromagnetic properties of metamaterials at any frequency can be engineered to take on arbitrary values, including those not appearing in nature. As a result, this new class of materials can dramatically add a degree of freedom to the control of electromagnetic waves. The emergence of metamaterials fortunately coincides with the intense emerging interest in terahertz radiation (T-rays), for which efficient forms of electromagnetic manipulation are sought. Considering the scarcity of naturally existing materials that can control terahertz, metamaterials become ideal substitutes that promise advances in terahertz research. Ultimately, terahertz metamaterials will lead to scientific and technological advantages in a number of areas. This article covers the principles of metamaterials and reviews the latest trends in terahertz metamaterial research from the fabrication and characterization to the implementation.

TL;DR: Results show that Hyperledger Fabric consistently outperforms Ethereum across all evaluation metrics which are execution time, latency and throughput, and both platforms are still not competitive with current database systems in term of performances in high workload scenarios.
Abstract: This paper conducts a performance analysis of two popular private blockchain platforms, Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum (private deployment), to assess the performance and limitations of these state-of-the-art platforms. Blockchain, a decentralized transaction and data management technology, is said to be the technology that will have similar impacts as the Internet had on people's lives. Many industries have become interested in adopting blockchain in their IT systems, but scalability is an often- cited concern of current blockchain technology. Therefore, the goals of this preliminary performance analysis are twofold. First, a methodology for evaluating a blockchain platform is developed. Second, the analysis results are presented to inform practitioners in making decisions regarding adoption of blockchain technology in their IT systems. The experimental results, based on varying number of transactions, show that Hyperledger Fabric consistently outperforms Ethereum across all evaluation metrics which are execution time, latency and throughput. Additionally, both platforms are still not competitive with current database systems in term of performances in high workload scenarios.
