Abstract

Networking field is looking forward for improved and efficient methods in channel utilization. For some text, data recovery becomes indispensable because of importance of data it holds. Therefore, a lossless decomposition algorithm which is independent of the nature and pattern of text is today’s top concern. Efficiency of algorithms used today varies greatly depending on the nature of text. Such algorithms need some characters to be frequently appearing in the text and randomness in the characters present distorts the consistency to a large extent. This paper brings in the idea of using an art form called ambigram to compress text with consistency in the efficiency of the compression.

Keywords

Ambigrams, lossless compression, steganography, stego key, embedded algorithms, encryption.

1. Introduction

When so many algorithms are available for compressing text, they hamper the readability of the text once compressed. Compressing the text using ambigrams also reduces the text to nearly 50% of its size. When most of the other compressing techniques depend on the nature of the text to be compressed, this technique is independent of the type of the text and requires only the corresponding data set. Hence, this method is consistent in performance. Ambigrams though known to many, has not found major applications in the field of technology. Probing further into this unravelled art form, it can be substantiated that ambigrams can be used to compress text.

1.1 Ambigram- Definition

The word ambigram was coined by Douglas R. Hofstadter, a computer scientist who…...

...English Essay Rewrite Compare and contrast Text A and Text B Text A- Satirical Elegy on the death of a late famous general Text B- An obituary of William Davidson Both texts are similar, in the fact that they both are reminiscence on a person’s life after their death. Many differences, however, can be seen throughout the poem written by Jonathan Swift and the Obituary. The opening of both Texts is contradictory as Text A opens with a series of exclamations, ‘His Grace! Impossible! What, dead!, ’which gives an impression of surprise at the death but not a sense of grief is aroused. On the other hand, Text B embarks with a compliment ‘was in his element at the heart of the action’; both openings give a clear implication of the withdrawal of the rest of the text. The structure of both are also at a contrast, Text A is an elegy so Is a farewell to the dead but the fact that Swift writes a satire elegy therefore removes the traditional aspect of an elegy. Text B is an Obituary, but although also a farewell to the dead, it is read at a remembrance or a funeral so is written with aspiration to honour William Davidson and not undermine him in the way that Text A is. Text A is written with a sarcastic and mocking tone, through the poem it is highlighted that the general has earned the disrespected he has received through the mention also of his failures with use of the parallelism of ‘Nor widows’ sigh, nor orphans’ tears’ which gives the impression that no grief is......

Compression Bandages

... concerning management and technique of compression bandaging. Background: Compression bandaging is required for venous leg ulcers, which is due to damage and loss of skin above the ankle that is the result of a problem with the veins in the leg. Although leg ulcers are not a life-threatening condition, it can have considerable effects, not only on health, but also on the quality of life, self-esteem and healthcare cost. Method: Extended literature review, to extrapolate best available evidence, in order to address the focus question. Computerised and manual searches of previous literature were used; refining searches by means of constantly re-evaluating inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: Eight (8) articles were decided upon, seven (7) of which were quantitative and one (1) which was qualitative in design. Two main themes emerged from these articles, that of management strategies for leg ulcers and technique of applying compression bandages. Recommendations: Episodes of venous ulceration can be reduced with management strategies, such as graduated compression therapy with comprehensive technique. However, without further education for nurses and patients towards compression therapy, venous ulceration will prolong and management strategies will fail. Conclusion: Knowledge of compression bandaging technique needs to be increased through further training/education. KEY WORDS Compression Therapy • Prevention • Technique •......

And we usually think that each feature is important to distinguish one form from another. Researchers in this domain confirmed that the number of primitives increases; the performance of a recognition system becomes poor and the computation time increases [1]. Consequently, a feature selection process is needed to resolve such a problem. Researchers categorized feature selection methods into three groups; heuristic methods, complete methods and random methods. Random method of research is rather new in its use of methods for selecting primitive compared to the other two categories heuristic and complete. Genetic algorithms (GA) are recently received considerable attention regarding their potential as an optimization technique based on the mechanism of natural selection. The features selection using GA has been used in various research areas such as camera calibration [2], verification of signatures [3], medical diagnosis [4], face recognition [5] and recognizing numbers [1].

Data Set Compression

...Paper 258-2013 Data Set Compression using COMPRESS= ABSTRACT DUE TO AN INCREASED AWARENESS ABOUT DATA MINING, TEXT MINING AND BIG DATA APPLICATIONS ACROSS ALL DOMAINS THE VALUE OF DATA HAS BEEN REALIZED AND IS RESULTING IN DATA SETS WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF VARIABLES AND INCREASED OBSERVATION SIZE. OFTEN IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME TO PROCESS THESE DATASETS WHICH CAN HAVE AN IMPACT ON DELIVERY TIMELINES. WHEN THERE IS LIMITED PERMANENT STORAGE SPACE, STORING SUCH LARGE DATASETS MAY CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS. BEST WAY TO HANDLE SOME OF THESE CONSTRAINTS IS BY MAKING A LARGE DATASET SMALLER, BY REDUCING THE NUMBER OF OBSERVATIONS AND/OR VARIABLES OR BY REDUCING THE SIZE OF THE VARIABLES, WITHOUT LOSING VALUABLE INFORMATION. IN THIS PAPER WE WILL SEE HOW A SAS DATA SET CAN BE COMPRESSED USING THE COMPRESS= SYSTEM OPTION AND ALSO SOME TECHNIQUES TO MAKE THIS OPTION MORE EFFECTIVE. Introduction THE PROCESS OF REDUCING THE NUMBER OF BYTES REQUIRED TO REPRESENT EACH OBSERVATION IS KNOWN AS COMPRESSION. SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPRESSING A DATASET INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, A COMPRESSED FILE REDUCES THE STORAGE REQUIREMENTS AND ALSO REDUCES THE NUMBER OF I/O OPERATIONS NECESSARY TO READ OR WRITE THE DATA DURING PROCESSING. IN A COMPRESSED FILE, THE DELETED OBSERVATION SPACE CAN BE REUSED USING REUSE= OPTION, WHEREAS IN AN UNCOMPRESSED DATA SET THE DELETED OBSERVATION SPACE IS NEVER REUSED. To create a compressed data set we use the COMPRESS= output data set option or......

To Text or Not to Text

...To text or not to text Text messaging has become a convenient way to communicate or maybe an obsession. Texting as is it is commonly referred to today, allows individuals to literally to express their thoughts, information, and maintain relationships with the tips of their fingers. The use of the text message has redefined the way in which our society communicates with each other. Would you believe that 11% of people have sent a text message during sex! Wow! This trend seems to have become an addiction. Text messages are usually read within 5 minutes of being received and responded to instantly. Though this function has many benefits, it has created several negative problems as well. The cost to ones safety as well as the general public has made texting a highly debated subject. I prefer to just pick up the phone and make a call. It’s quick, it’s easy and if you don’t get an answer, you just leave a message or call back later. Thought of as a convenient way of communication, texting with technology advances faster than etiquette has contributed to the erosion of our society. The power of text messaging is one that has redefined how the world communicates and those that choose to use it have a responsibility to use it correctly. Text messaging allows for individuals to maintain person relationships for those that do not have the ability to see one another on a regular basis. As a study showed, the average teenager uses the text message for about 54% of their interactions......

Video Compression: an Examination of the Concepts, Standards, Benefits, and Economics

...Video Compression: An Examination of the Concepts, Standards, Benefits, and Economics ITEC620 April 14, 2008 To accommodate the increased demand for digital video content, compression technology must be used. This paper examines the most commonly used compression formats, the MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 video compression formats, their relative benefits and differences, the delivery methods available for digital video content and the economics of video content delivery. Every time a digital video disc is played, a video is watched on YouTube, an NFL clip is viewed on a Sprint-based cellular phone, or a movie is ordered through an on-demand cable television video service, the viewer is watching data that is not in the state it which it originated. Video in an unmodified state is comprised of vast quantities of data (Apostopoulos & Wee, 2000). In order to make effective and efficient usage of video data, some method of reducing the quantity of data is necessary. Apostopoulos and Wee, in their 2000 paper, “Video Compression Standards” explain this succinctly and well, “For example, consider the problem of video transmission within high-definition television (HDTV). A popular HDTV video format is progressively scanned 720x1280 pixels/frame, 60 frames/s video signal, with 24-bits/pixel (8 bits for red, green, and blue), which corresponds to a raw data rate of about 1.3 Gbits/sec.

Belonging Essay Using ‘Strictly Ballroom’ and Two Related Texts

...Belonging Essay using ‘Strictly Ballroom’ and two related texts Belonging is important in Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom, Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta and Minh Bui Jones’ feature article, On Home and Haven. These texts show how belonging or to fit into a group and be part of something is essential to human existence and brings more meaning to one’s life. Belonging is about being comfortable with the people you interact with and the environment you find yourself in. A need to challenge culture is seen in all three texts. ‘Strictly Ballroom’ is set in a surreal world of hyperbole and all of the characters are exaggerated stereotypes. Those who hold the power in the ballroom dancing world, value tradition and would do anything, even corruption, to prevent individuals from rebelling against the ‘norm’. The traditional world of ballroom dancing gives them a sense of belonging, and they do not wish for this to change. In the scene where Scott is dancing his own steps in front of the mirror, conveying that he does not want to belong to the ‘norm’ of ballroom dancing, the mirror is seen as a symbol of self-expression as Scott uses it to watch himself dance his ‘non-federation’ steps. He dances in his singlet and black pants, an expression of true self contrasting with the flashy colourful ballroom dancing costumes. The bright yellow, pinks and blues in the costumes highlight the significance of appearing extraordinary. Scott dances in and out of the frame,......

H.264 is an industry standard for video compression, the process of converting digital video into a format that takes up less capacity when it is stored or transmitted. Video compression (or video coding) is an essential technology for applications such as digital television, DVD-Video, mobile TV, videoconferencing and internet video streaming. Standardising video compression makes it possible for products from different manufacturers (e.g. encoders, decoders and storage media) to inter-operate. An encoder converts video into a compressed format and a decoder converts compressed video back into an uncompressed format. Recommendation H.264: Advanced Video Coding is a document published by the international standards bodies ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union) and ISO/IEC (International Organisation for Standardisation / International Electrotechnical Commission). It defines a format (syntax) for compressed video and a method for decoding this syntax to produce a displayable video sequence. The standard document does not actually specify how to encode (compress) digital video – this is left to the manufacturer of a video encoder – but in practice the encoder is likely to mirror the......
