EEGLAB - Open Source Matlab Toolbox for Electrophysiological Research EEGLAB provides an interactive graphic user interface (GUI) allowing users to flexibly and interactively process their high-density EEG and other dynamic brain data using independent component analysis (ICA) and/or time/frequency analysis (TFA), as well as standard averaging methods. EEGLAB also incorporates extensive tutorial and help windows, plus a command history function that eases users' transition from GUI-based data exploration to building and running batch or custom data analysis scripts. EEGLAB offers a wealth of methods for visualizing and modeling event-related brain dynamics, both at the level of individual EEGLAB 'datasets' and/or across a collection of datasets brought together in an EEGLAB 'studyset.'
Online : Open source hardware 2009 - The definitive guide Welcome to definitive guide to open source hardware projects in 2009. First up – What is open source hardware? These are projects in which the creators have decided to completely publish all the source, schematics, firmware, software, bill of materials, parts list, drawings and “board” files to recreate the hardware – they also allow any use, including commercial. Similar to open source software like Linux, but this hardware centric. Each year we do a guide to all open source hardware and this year there are over 125 unique projects/kits in 19 categories, up from about 60 in 2008, more than doubling the projects out there! – it’s incredible!
Umberto Brunelleschi My favorit flower is the Lily of the Valley. One of my favorite followers on Twitter is Lily of Opulence (A Perfumed Pearl). A while ago she posted some pictures of the Italian artist Umberto Brunelleschi. I immediately fell for the colors and the art nouveau style of his work. * Signal Processing Workshop Introduction Signal processing plays a part in nearly all modern media — every time we listen to recorded music or view a photograph or a video, it is virtually certain that signal processing has played a part in its creation, editing or storage. It is not even a slight exaggeration to say that the present system of media content creation and delivery — all modern visual and sound media — would not be possible without the methods described in this article. This article provides an overview of this technology, discusses the mathematical techniques, then provides source-code examples for the key methods with examples of their use.

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong Every great leader possesses a degree of what Walter Isaacson (in his biography of Steve Jobs) describes as "an ability to distort reality." What Isaacson meant is that Jobs forced his will on Apple, often pushing people to create things they never thought possible--a powerful asset in any leader. But that reality distortion effect works both ways. It also means that every leader, to a greater or lesser degree, distorts the reality around themselves, leading to tensions, inconsistency, and bad decisions. There are two reasons why leaders who live in a bubble become so dangerous to themselves and those they lead.
University of Surrey - Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing - Open source C++ library What is RAVL? RAVL - Recognition And Vision Library - provides a base C++ class library together with a range of computer vision, pattern recognition, audio and supporting tools. RAVL was originally developed at CVSSP, the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, at the University of Surrey, UK. Subsequently it was moved into the public domain to support its use in a wider community. Features Some of the features that set RAVL apart from other C++ libraries are: MakerBot Industries Steps to Success Every now and then we’re reminded 3D printing is not science fiction, but a real technology used every day to make amazing things in homes, studios, schools, and businesses. At MakerBot we’re proud to be leading this Next Industrial Revolution with the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem, which makes desktop 3D printing and 3D scanning affordable and reliable for everyone, and includes a variety of products and services to help unleash your creativity.

An Open Letter to President Barack Obama - Americans for Open Records An Open Letter to President Barack Obama about Adoption… via www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments Americans For Open Records (AmFOR) January 28, 2013 (updated version of letter sent 2-16-09) PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500 Dear President Obama, You've addressed Gay Rights. Open Source tools for machine vision Technical Discussions related to Image Processing (image coding, compression, digital effects, mpeg, etc) Post a new Thread Is this thread worth a thumbs up? Hello, I have to evaluate video enhancement algoritms ( such as image stabilization, contrast enhancement, pattern recognition ) with some pre- recorded video sequences ( mpeg2/ts ). Can someone recommend me "easy-to-use" open source framework I can use to stream, filter and display results real time? I am looking to run it on generic PC hardware, OS can be Linux, any 32-bit version of Windows, or Java...
Folding please read The project has pioneered the use of GPUs, PlayStation 3s, and Message Passing Interface (used for computing on multi-core processors) for distributed computing and scientific research. The project uses statistical simulation methodology that is a paradigm shift from traditional computational approaches. As part of the client-server network architecture, the volunteered machines each receive pieces of a simulation (work units), complete them, and return them to the project's database servers where the units are compiled into an overall simulation. Volunteers can track their contributions on the Folding@home website, which makes volunteers' participation competitive and encourages long-term involvement. Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems, with a speed of approximately 40.2 petaFLOPS: greater than all projects running on the BOINC distributed computing platform and making it the world's most powerful computing system.
