Described is system for generation of elliptic curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA) based digital signatures. A. Secret-Share protocol is initialized between a client and a set of servers to share a set of shares of a private key s among the set of servers. The set of servers initializes a protocol to generate a digital signature on a message using the set of shares of the private key s without reconstructing or revealing the private key A. The set of servers periodically initialises a Secret-Redistribute protocol on each share of the private key A- to re- randomize the set of shares. A Secret-Open protocol is initialized to reveal the private key s to an intended recipient, wherein the private key A is used to compute the digital signature.

Described is a system for data classification using formal concept analysis (FCA). In a training phase, the system generates a FCA classification lattice, having a structure, using a set of training data. The set of training data comprises training presentations and classifications corresponding to the training presentations, in a classification phase, a set of test data having classes that are hierarchical in nature is classified using the structure of the FCA classification lattice.

A delta sigma modulator which has improved dynamic range. The modulator has a plurality of ADCs and a plurality of DACs, the plurality of ADCs and DACs are connected in a loop. The plurality of ADCs are coupled with an incoming analog signal. A clock generator provides a plurality of clock signals which control the plurality of ADCs and the plurality of DACs, the clock signals being offset relative to each other in the time domain thereby enabling each ADC in the plurality of ADCs one at a time and each DAC in the plurality of DACs one at a time so that the modulator processes data in the incoming analog signal in an interleaved fashion.

A metal microparticle coated with metal hydride nanoparticles is disclosed. Some variations provide a material comprising a plurality of microparticles (1 micron to 1 millimeter) containing a metal or metal alloy and coated with a plurality of nanoparticles (less than 1 micron) containing a metal hydride or metal alloy hydride. The invention eliminates non-uniform distribution of sintering aids by attaching them directly to the surface of the microparticles. No method is previously known to exist which can assemble nanoparticle metal hydrides onto the surface of a metal microparticle. Some variations provide a solid article comprising a material with a metal or metal alloy microparticles coated with metal hydride or metal alloy hydride nanoparticles, wherein the nanoparticles form continuous or periodic inclusions at or near grain boundaries within the microparticles.

Described is a system for filtering, segmenting and recognizing objects. The system receives a three-dimensional (3D) point cloud having a plurality of data points in 3D space and down-samples the 3D point cloud to generate a down- sampled 3D point cloud with reduced data points in the 3D space. A ground plane is then identified and removed, leaving above-ground data, points in the down-sampled 3D point cloud. The above-ground data points are clustered to generate a plurality of 3 D blobs, each of the 3D blobs having a cluster size. The 3D blobs are filtered based on cluster size to generate a set of 3D candidate blobs. Features are extracted from each 3D candidate blob. Finally, at least one of the 3D candidate blobs is classified as a pre-defined object class based on the extracted features.
