Specification covers new algorithms, methods, and systems for artificial intelligence, soft computing, and deep learning/recognition, e.g., image recognition (e.g., for action, gesture, emotion, expression, biometrics, fingerprint, facial, ocr (text), background, relationship, position, pattern, and object), large number of images (“big data”) analytics, machine learning, training schemes, crowd-sourcing (using experts or humans), feature space, clustering, classification, similarity measures, optimization, search engine, ranking, question-answering system, soft (fuzzy or unsharp) boundaries/impreciseness/ambiguities/fuzziness in language, natural language processing (nlp), computing-with-words (cww), parsing, machine translation, sound and speech recognition, video search and analysis (e.g. Tracking), image annotation, geometrical abstraction, image correction, semantic web, context analysis, data reliability (e.g., using z-number (e.g., “about 45 minutes; very sure”)), rules engine, control system, autonomous vehicle, self-diagnosis and self-repair robots, system diagnosis, medical diagnosis, biomedicine, data mining, event prediction, financial forecasting, economics, risk assessment, e-mail management, database management, indexing and join operation, memory management, and data compression..

Allyl group-modified fluorooxyalkylene group-containing polymer and producing the same

There can be provided a fluorooxyalkylene group-containing polymer that is excellent in thermal stability and chemical stability, in addition to water- and oil-repellency, releasability, chemical resistance, lubricity, durability, antifouling property, and fingerprint-wiping property.. .

Photosensitive resin composition and antireflection film

[problem] to provide: a photosensitive resin composition which is cured by radiation and exhibits excellent wear resistance, antifouling properties, marker pen ink wiping-off properties, fingerprint wiping-off properties and low refractive index, and which provides low reflectance in cases where the photosensitive resin composition is used for an antireflection film; and an antireflection film which has a cured coating film of this photosensitive resin composition. [solution] a photosensitive resin composition for an antireflection film that is characterized in that a low refractive index layer contains an acrylate, a colloidal silica, and an organic modified dimethyl polysiloxane having an acryloyl group and an acrylate-modified perfluoropolyether that serve as surface modification agents; and an antireflection film which is obtained by curing the photosensitive resin composition..
