Ohio University is a U.S. public research university located on a 1,850-acre campus in Athens, Ohio, United States. Ohio is the first institution of higher education chartered through an act of Congress in America, by the Northwest Ordinance in 1787; the first university in the former Northwest Territory, in 1804; and is the ninth oldest public university in the United States. The Athens campus enrolls more than 21,000 students, who come from nearly every state and approximately 100 countries. Five regional campuses and e-learning programs further extend educational access and opportunity to students across southern Ohio and bring the total student population to approximately 40,000.The university maintains a selective admission rate with further admission requirements for its schools. The Heritage College of Medicine maintains its separate select admissions criteria. Ohio University offers more than 250 areas of undergraduate study. On the graduate level, the university grants master’s degrees in many of its major academic divisions, and doctoral degrees in selected departments. Ohio University is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies Ohio as a Research University under the Basic Classification category.Ohio has been cited for outstanding academic quality and value by publications Fortune, U.S. News and World Report, BusinessWeek, Forbes, America's 100 Best College Buys, Princeton Review's Best Colleges, and Peterson's Guide to Competitive Colleges. The John Templeton Foundation has also recognized Ohio University as one of the top character-building institutions in the country. The Chronicle of Higher Education has recognized the university as one of the top producers of U.S. Fulbright scholars by type of institution, with the highest number of recipients in the state as well as the Mid-American Conference in 2011-12. Its total number of Fulbright winners frequently ranks the university first in the state and places the university in the company of Boston College, Princeton University, and UCLA.Ohio's Division I sports teams are called the Bobcats and compete in the Mid-American Conference in all sports. Ohio is host to the oldest football venue in the MAC and among the oldest athletic arenas west of the Allegheny Mountains. Ohio football has participated in 6 Division-1 Bowl Games within the past decade. Its men's basketball team has played in 13 NCAA basketball championships. The team defeated Georgetown 97-83 in 2010, and their 2012 victory over Michigan was followed with a 62–56 win over 12th seeded South Florida that saw them reach the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1964.

Systems, methods and computer storage mediums securely authenticate an identity of an individual based on a pattern that is traced by the individual. Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to prompting an individual with a pattern to trace when attempting to authenticate the identity of the individual during an identity authentication session. Motion-based behavior data that is generated by motions executed by the individual as the individual traces the pattern is captured via a motion-capturing sensor. The motion-based behavior data is unique to the individual and has a low likelihood of being duplicated by an unauthorized individual attempting to fraudulently pose as the individual. The captured motion-based behavior data is compared to previously captured motion-based behavior data from previous traces of the pattern completed by the individual. The identity of the individual is authenticated when the motion-based behavior data is within a threshold of the previously captured motion-based behavior data.

The present invention provides methods for detecting and correcting transmission errors in inter-router links of Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures. A NoC has repeaters along its bus lines. The output of a main repeater is compared and multiplexed with the output of a shadow repeater. If these outputs are the same the multiplexer outputs the output of the main repeater, otherwise an error is detected and the multiplexer outputs the output of the shadow repeater.

Systems and methods include assessing cognitive function of the individual as the individual engages cognitive exercises using a multi-touch device. Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to engaging the individual with the cognitive exercise via a user interface of the multi-touch device so that the individual implements a plurality of cognitive skills when engaging the cognitive exercise. Cognitive responses generated by the individual when engaging the cognitive exercise are received via the user interface of the multi-touch device. The cognitive data generated from the cognitive responses are analyzed to determine an assessment of the cognitive function associated with the individual. A cognitive function score is then determined from the assessment of the cognitive function associated with the individual in which the cognitive function score is representative of the cognitive function of the individual.

Systems and methods securely determine whether a human or a hacking computing device attempts to engage an application. Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to identifying a defined pattern to be displayed by a user interface for an individual to trace. The defined pattern is dynamically displayed so that characteristics associated with the defined pattern change as the defined pattern is displayed. A background is displayed simultaneously with the defined pattern. The background randomly changes as the characteristics associated with the defined pattern change. The likelihood that a hacking computing device can recognize the dynamically changing defined pattern from the dynamically changing background is low while the likelihood that the human brain can do so is high. Thus, user attempting to engage the application is confirmed as a human when a trace of the defined patter is received.

Carbon microspheres are doped with boron to enhance the electrical and physical properties of the microspheres. The boron-doped carbon microspheres are formed by a CVD process in which a catalyst, carbon source and boron source are evaporated, heated and deposited onto an inert substrate.
