Systems and methods for designing experiments
Methods and systems for designing an experiment using a computer to determine whether the experiment is a true experiment are described. These approaches allow a user who is unsophisticated in the complexities of true experimental design to design and deploy an experiment that produces substantially confound-free results and can be used to determine and quantify any causal relationship between independent and dependent variables.

Data visualisation tool
A rapidly configurable data visualisation tool for enabling a user to carry out a desired analysis function to identify trends within stored data sets is described. The tool comprises: a very large database having a plurality of base model database tables, each base model table being configured to store predetermined data variables relating to a previously implemented complex function and having one or more predetermined base analysis fields associated with each table; a configuration module arranged to present to the user a plurality of the predetermined base analysis fields for user selection to configure the desired analysis function on the data sets; and an analysis module for reading out the data stored in the base model tables in the selected base analysis fields in accordance with the desired analysis function and conducting further processing on the data to create a base analysis result comprising other composite selected base analysis fields in accordance with the desired analysis function..

Method and apparatus for presenting content in response to user inputs using dynamic intelligent profiling
Different users may receive different information in response to a selection of the same link that is displayed on a website, mobile site or in the real world. The content delivered to a particular user may be dependent on the time of the selection, the geographic location of the user, a weather condition at the geographical location, personal information associated with the user, a number of previous selections of the link by prior individuals, and any combination of the these or other variables, which may be determined by an originator of the link or another party.

Initializing an inertial sensor using soft constraints and penalty functions
An initialization method for an inertial sensor that estimates starting orientation and velocity without requiring the sensor to start at rest or in a well-known location or orientation. Initialization uses patterns of motion encoded as a set of soft constraints that are expected to hold approximately during an initialization period.

Thermo-economic modeling and optimization of a combined cooling, heating, and power plant
A method to manage operating costs of a combined cooling heating and power (cchp) plant that includes converting complex models of underlying components of the plant into simplified models (s101), performing an optimization that uses the simplified models as constraints of the optimization to output at least one decision variable (s102), and adjusting controls of the plant based on one or more of the output decision variables (s103).. .
