A power control device includes a heating section, an input section, and a control section. The heating section is configured to heat an object. The input section is configured to receive a power consumption value. The control section is configured to control the heating section so that a total power value obtained by adding a power consumption value of the heating section and the power consumption value received by the input section does not exceed a predetermined power value.


According to an embodiment, an image processing apparatus includes an interface that receives a first image and a second image. A processor extracts a first character string appearing on the first image, and a second character string appearing on the second image. The processor determines that both the first character string and the second character string correspond to a photographed subject in the first image and second image. The processor cuts out each of the characters constituting the first character string, in units of a character. The processor cuts out each of the characters constituting the second character string, in units of a character. The processor calculates a first similarity degree group and a second similarity degree group. The processor recognizes a character string of the subject, based on the first similarity degree group and the second similarity degree group.


According to one embodiment, an energy storage battery includes: a plurality of cells; an acquirer to acquire measured values of state amounts of the cells; a first parameter calculator to calculate first parameters for evaluating the cells, based on the measured values; and a communicator to transmit the first parameters to a monitoring controller via a communication network.

According to one embodiment, a document search apparatus includes the following elements. The query word extraction unit extracts, from an input sentence, a word for use in a search as a query word. The intention estimation unit estimates a search intention based on the input sentence. The query generator acquires, from a search expression list, a search expression corresponding to the estimated search intention, acquires, from an additional query word list, an additional query word corresponding to a set of the acquired search expression and the extracted query word, and generates a query based on the extracted query word, the acquired additional query word, and the acquired search expression. The search unit searches for a document that matches the query.


A fixing device includes a roller, a pressing member pressed against the roller, such that when a sheet having an unfixed image is passed thorough a nip formed between the roller and the pressing member, the unfixed image is fixed on the sheet, a first heater configured to heat the roller, a second heater configured to heat the pressing member, and a controller configured to control the second heater, such that a time-averaged heat generation by the second heater when an image of a decolorable material is fixed is greater than a time-averaged heat generation by the second heater when an image of a non-decolorable material is fixed.


A recommendation apparatus according to the embodiments of the present invention includes a history acquirer, a matching information calculator, and a recommender. The history acquirer acquires an activity history of a user. The matching information calculator calculates first matching information for the activity history of a pre-condition defined based on an activity of the user, regarding a control rule including the pre-condition and a post-condition indicating content of control performed for a device, the control rule defining to perform the control indicated by the post-condition when the pre-condition is established. The recommender generates recommendation information of the control rule for the user according to the first matching information.


According to one embodiment, a water treatment method is a method configured to use a working medium that includes a draw solution and a water-containing solution to be treated. The draw solution is a hyperosmotic solution which generates an osmotic pressure difference with water. The method includes generating a flux of a mixture of water and a draw solution by an osmotic pressure difference generated between a solution to be treated and the draw solution in an osmotic pressure generator compartmentalized by an osmosis membrane, transferring the flux of the mixture to a vaporization-separation unit, separating the mixture into the water and the draw solution by a pressure difference, and recycling the draw solution separated by the vaporization-separation unit.

According to one embodiment, integrated circuitry installed in a wireless communication device, includes a control circuitry. The control circuitry notifies a first information showing a number of channel sets each of which is a set of one or two or more consecutive channels out of a plurality of channels in a predetermined frequency band and among each of which the wireless communication device is able to separately transmit and receive a signal. The first information can be carrier sensing separation capability as part of a multi user multi channel scheme in WLAN.


According to one embodiment, a strain sensing element provided on a deformable substrate includes: a first magnetic layer; a second magnetic layer; a spacer layer; and a bias layer. Magnetization of the second magnetic layer changes according to deformation of the substrate. The spacer layer is provided between the first magnetic layer and the second magnetic layer. The second magnetic layer is provided between the spacer layer and the bias layer. The bias layer is configured to apply a bias to the second magnetic layer.
