Hong Kong, China

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology is a public research university in Clear Water Bay Peninsula, Hong Kong. Established in 1991, it is one of the territory's youngest statutory universities.The University currently consists of four disciplinary schools, which offer degrees in Business, Engineering, Science and Social Science & Humanities, alongside Interdisciplinary Programs Office, which provides cross-disciplinary programs, and Fok Ying Tung Graduate School/Fok Ying Tung Research Institute, which aims at technology transfer and commercialization. HKUST has been continuously viewed as one of the top three higher education institutions in Hong Kong. Wikipedia.

Locating mobile devices based on a junction of signal tiles is disclosed herein. Mobile devices are mapped to a convex hull within which the mobile device is likely to be located in based on a received signal strength indicator (RSSI) associated with an access point (AP). Using the RSSI from a set of APs, the mobile device can be located within a junction of a set of convex hulls, or tiles using a linear programming function. To mitigate signal noise and improve the accuracy of the location determination, the localization system can use the RSSIs of the APs that have signals with a predetermined signal dynamic range that leads to smaller tiles. Additionally, the localization system can reduce the search complexity of matching fingerprints to APs by partitioning the space into clusters with reference points that have similar signal vectors.

A sound absorption panel (201) is constructed on an acoustically thin sheet (203) to provide an acoustic/vibrational energy absorption metamaterial structure. A plurality of dampers (101) are fixed to the acoustically thin sheet (203), and at least a subset of said dampers (101) comprise a support (103) and a flexible membrane (105) supported by the support. The flexible membrane (105) has one or more masses or platelets (107) attached. The dampers (101) in combination with the sheet (203) result in absorption of energy of movement of the sheet (203) resulting from sound transmission or vibrations across the sheet.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a biologically complex neurodegenerative dementia. Nearly 20 years ago, with the combination of observations from biochemistry, neuropathology and genetics, a compelling hypothesis known as the amyloid cascade hypothesis was formulated. The core of this hypothesis is that it is pathological accumulations of amyloid-β, a peptide fragment of a membrane protein called amyloid precursor protein, that act as the root cause of AD and initiate its pathogenesis. Yet, with the passage of time, growing amounts of data have accumulated that are inconsistent with the basically linear structure of this hypothesis. And while there is fear in the field over the consequences of rejecting it outright, clinging to an inaccurate disease model is the option we should fear most. This Perspective explores the proposition that we are over-reliant on amyloid to define and diagnose AD and that the time has come to face our fears and reject the amyloid cascade hypothesis. © 2015 Nature America, Inc.
