Abstract - We propose a new neuromorphic singleelectron circuit that can improve speed of signal propagation by harnessing thermal noise energy. In recent years, the single-electron circuit has attracted attention in the field of nanotechnology. However, it is known that the circuit is sensitive to noise. In addition, it takes time to signal propagation. In contrast, recently, very unique neuronal behavior that an axon in a neuron improves the speed of signal propagation by harnessing noise energy has been reported. It is considered that the application of this behavior to the circuit is expected to provide a new high-speed single-electron circuit. In this study, we aim to design such the circuit to improve the signal propagation speed by harnessing the thermal noise by using a Monte

Abstract - This paper proposes a livestock activity monitoring system that will allow the collection and monitoring of livestock activity information by using wireless sensor networks technology. In the proposed system, sensor nodes are attached to livestock to establish WSN and livestock activities are measured to collect and monitor the vital information of livestock, and the information on livestock activity change according to disease or estrus that is stored in the database is compared with the collected information on livestock activity to notify the producer in real-time of any values that exceed or fall short of the standard values.

Therefore, the proposed system could diagnose estrus and disease conditions of livestock in early stages based on locations and activity information of livestock collected from wireless sensor nodes, and it is expected to improve productivity of livestock and to minimize damage of livestock diseases through it. 2

Abstract: Spatial data mining organizes by location what is interesting as such, specific features of spatial data mining (including observations that are not independent and spatial autocorrelation among the features) that preclude the use of general purpose data mining algorithms poses a serious challenge in the task of mining meaningful patterns from spatial systems. This creates the complexity that characterises complex spatial systems. Thus, the major challenge for a spatial data miner in trying to build a general complex spatial model would be; to be able to integrate the elements of these complex systems in a way that is optimally effective in any particular case. We have examined ways of creating explicit spatial model that represents an application of mining techniques capable of analysing data from a complex spatial system and then producing information that would be useful in various disciplines where spatial data form the basis of general interest.
