• Protecting RFID tags from power analysis (No. 1447)

    Scientist: Adi Shamir

    A cheap and effective solution for protecting RFID tags from power attacks. RFID tags are secure tags present in many applications (e.g. secure passports). They are poised to become the most far-reaching wireless technology since the cell phone, with worldwide revenues expected to reach $2.8 billion in 2009. RFID tags we ... Read more
  • Changing an Image Size without Information Loss (No. 1461)

    Scientist: Michal Irani

    Bidirectional Similarity offers a new approach to summarization of visual data (images and video) based on optimization of well defined similarity measure. Common visual summarization methods (mainly scaling and cropping) suffer from significant deficiencies related to image quality and loss of important data. Many attem ... Read more
  • Increasing resolution of an Image (No. 1522)

    Scientist: Michal Irani

    A method for enhancing the spatial and or temporal resolution (if applicable) of an input signal such as images and videos.   Many imaging devices produce signals of unsatisfactory resolution (e.g. a photo from a cell-phone camera may have low spatial resolution or a video from a web camera may have both spatial and tem ...

  • Using olfactory perception for scent marketing (No. 1784)

    Scientist: Noam Sobel

    Romantic relationships have major impact on our social, emotional and physical wellbeing. Despite this overwhelming importance, we have only limited understanding of the rules and mechanisms that are at the heart of good relationships. Popular notion holds that increased similarity between relationship partners is an ome ... Read more
  • Removing artifacts from EEG measurments triggerd by transcranial magnetic stimulation (No. 1800)

    Scientist: Elisha Moses

    A new software tool used for the removal of artifacts from transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) triggered electroencephalography (EEG) was developed by the group of Prof. Moses. The combined use of TMS with EEG allows for a unique measurement of the brain's global response to localized and abrupt stimulations. This ma ... Read more
