Based on this buy discount provigil 200mg online, the system can analyze its library of activities and their associated EoLs to iden- tify those activities with movements that match the frequent mistake of the students discount provigil 100 mg visa. Given the dimensions of two di¤erent hands, the system can construct a filter, similar to an EoL, which would be applied to the streams in the play mode. The design of this filter is expected to be simple because it is spatial in nature. It is important to make it possible for a patient or 168 Shahram Ghandeharizadeh student to divide an activity into its subactivities to simplify the learning experience. For example, with chopsticks, a patient such as Mathew might request the system to display only the movement of the right index finger (with no chopsticks of course). Now, while keeping the other fingers in the form of a fist, stretch your thumb out. We are investigating data-mining techniques on how to discover and represent this knowledge. They can be made more application specific and powerful with triggers at the metadata level that provide a framework to direct the data-mining tools toward the optimal solution. As indicated earlier, an activity performed by a trainer is one multilevel represen- tation. We are analyzing tools that can process data at di¤erent levels to detect cor- relations that represent constraints. To illustrate this concept, assume that for each activity, one level of representation corresponds to the movement of di¤erent fingers (regions). The MDBMS can scan all such data to build a profile of how the di¤erent fingers move relative to each other. If two limbs always move with one another, then it might be feasible to hypothesize that these two limbs are dependent on one another. The objective here is to create a framework that can detect interesting spatio-temporal patterns based on the underlying data. These patterns can serve as a framework when activating the glove to move a single finger.
