Large-scale data management systems rely more and more on cloud storage, where the need for efficient search capabilities clashes with the need for data privacy. Searchable encryption is a tool for supporting queries to en- crypted databases which provides various levels of efficiency, functionality, and security.
The objective of this research is to understand mechanisms for generating natural movements of skeletal mechanisms driven by stochastically-controlled, biologically-inspired actuators. The approach is to verify the hypothesis that the variability associated with high redundancy and the stochastic nature of the actuation is key to generating natural movements.
