Computers and Network Security

Security is a must when dealing with a data network, this is why you have to take the proper precautions of coming up with a system to protect a business from any intruders, hackers, or anything of that nature. For most businesses you need a strong firewall and proxy to keep unwanted people out. You will also need a strong Anti-virus software and Internet Security Software. For authentication, you must use strong passwords and change it on a bi-weekly/monthly basis. When using a wireless connection, you must have a robust password. You also must raise awareness about physical security to employees. Finally, you must implement an optional network analyzer or network monitor.

Healthcare Technology – Advancements in Nursing

The medical field comprises a vast base of knowledge. Computer storage serves as the best way to house all this information. There are many types of computers that can help with diagnosing illnesses, doing procedures to treat illnesses, and even helping to reduce the degree of invasive procedures during testing. Many facilities are also switching from handwriting patient information logs to computerized patient logs. Including computers in each patient’s room to have their entire file readily available and easily accessible to retrieve and record new patient information. There are more computers than I can name that are used for medical purposes. With many of these we are able to provide many types of tests that can save lives and help in early detection of illnesses. Some include: Ultrasound, MRI and CT, Mammograms, and EKG.

Can Technology Consume Us?

In our world today technology is an essential part of everyone’s lives. Cell phones help keep people connected to each other, their work, and even the internet. Cars can parallel park themselves and run on alternative methods of fuel to help the environment. But as we keep making things smarter, we have to ask ourselves how smart is to smart? Sure all these electronics and machines make our lives easier but what happens when they become too smart? What effect will that have on how we communicate, or how we interact? And how will we correct our mistakes if we make them?

Recognition of Bangla Sign Language Alphabets by Image Processing

Abstract:
This paper presents an image processing technique for mapping Bangla Sign Language alphabets to text. It attempts to process static images of the subject considered, and then matches them to a statistical database of pre-processed images to ultimately recognize the specific set of signed letters. Hand gesture recognition is a challenging problem in its general form. We consider a fixed set of manual commands and a reasonably structured Environment, and develop a simple, yet effective, procedure for gesture recognition. Our approach contains steps for converting the RGB image to Binary image, removing noise from this image, segmenting the hand region, finding out its area, circumference, and edges then extract some features from this preprocessed image. Then we create a database based on this features and classify the gesture based on the database. We also use exclusive-Or template matching and PSNR (Peak signal to noise ratio) comparison to detect the signs of Bangla Sign Language. Finally we combine the result of these three methods to detect the resultant gesture and convert them to text. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the technique on real imagery.
