Computers can perceive image curves like artists

Imagine computers being able to understand paintings or paint abstract images much like humans. Bo Li demonstrates a breakthrough concept in the field of computer vision using curves and lines to represent image shapes and furthermore to recognise objects. He defends his dissertation on 27 November ...

Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

2015-05-24 (from 2015-05-21)
For decades, the fundamental design of microwave devices, such as antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has essentially relied on the inventiveness of a professional designer. Computer simulations are usually used only in final design stages to fine-tune details in the des...
