    • Unconstrained palmprint as a smartphone biometric 

      Ungureanu, Adrian-Stefan; Thavalengal, Shejin; Cognard, Timothée E.; Costache, Claudia; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2017-11-13)
      In this work the use of palmprints as an alternative biometric for smartphones is investigated and its feasibility is evaluated across multiple devices using unconstrained acquisition. A novel multi-device database that ...
    • Understanding online communities by using semantic web technologies 

      Passant, Alexandre; Kinsella, Sheila; Bojars, Uldis; Breslin, John G.; Decker, Stefan (IGI Global, 2011)
      During the last few years, the Web that we used to know as a read-only medium shifted to a read-write Web, often known as Web 2.0 or the Social Web, in which people interact, share and build content collaboratively within ...
    • Understanding Patent Applications [IP Corner] 

      Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2012)
      In order to obtain the grant of a patent, a person or more commonly an organization, must file an application at a patent office with jurisdiction to grant a patent in the relevant geographic area. This is often be a ...
    • A URI is worth a thousand tags: From tagging to linked data with MOAT 

      Passant, Alexandre; Laublet, Philippe; Breslin, John G.; Decker, Stefan (IGI Global, 2009)
      Although tagging is a widely accepted practice on the Social Web, it raises various issues like tags ambiguity and heterogeneity, as well as the lack of organization between tags. We believe that Semantic Web technologies ...
    • User Interface Technologies for Home Appliances and Networks 

      Zoldi, Arpad; Papai, Ferenc; Corcoran, Peter M. (IEEE, 1998)
      The design and implementation of portable, light- weight user-interfaces to provide access to remote embedded home-systems and home-networks is described. This paper is focused on emerging standards in ...

    • What if digital cameras didn't need (local) storage?: directing photos to the cloud 

      Raducan, Iliaru; Coughlin, Thomas; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2012)
      Cloud computing suggests that we can move computers from the desktop onto the network. In this article, we investigate whether we can do the same with digital imaging devices. After all, for most of us, the practical ...
    • Wide field of view (WFoV) imaging for consumer devices 

      Corcoran, Peter (2014)
      The concepts of wide field of view (WFoV) imaging for consumer devices are explained. Some current examples and enabling technologies are provided. The need for real-time distortion correction is outlined. Several new ...
    • Wireless home network infrastructure for wearable appliances 

      Corcoran, Peter; Desbonnet, Joe (IEEE, 2002-06-18)
      A server infrastructure allows wireless wearable appliances or portable handsets to access consumer services offered via the server. Services are accessed via a universal home services interface (UHSI) which is shared by ...
    • Wireless remote control [IP Corner] 

      Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2012-10)
      The original Flashmatic patent was filed May 6th 1955 and granted Sept 8 1959 to the Zenith Radio Corporation. Even in those days it took almost 4 years to work through the patent examination process to have a legally ...
