A Cognitive Assistant for Visualizing and Analyzing Exoplanets

Jeffrey Kephart, Victor Dibia, Jason Ellis, Biplav Srivastava, Kartik Talamadupula, Mishal Dholakia
We demonstrate an embodied cognitive agent that helps scientists visualize and analyze exo-planets and their host stars.  ...  Users communicate with the agent via speech, gestures, and combinations thereof, and it responds by displaying content and generating synthesized speech.  ...  The prototype described here is an embodied cognitive assistant that helps astrophysicists visualize and analyze exoplanets -planets that orbit stars other than the sun.  ...

Compounds were purified from an ethanol/water solvent pair and analyzed using TLC, NMR, IR, and techniques. Data for several of the triazole derivatives are presented.  ...  Existing visualization graphs are modified to include an uncertainty component. Comparative graphs are shown for known attack data to compare the two approaches.  ...  One such use for this is for a new propulsion concept called an Electrodeless Lorentz Force thruster that creates a plasmoid and then collides that plasmoid into neutral particles.  ...
