Predicting Complications in Critical Care Using Heterogeneous Clinical Data
Patients in hospitals, particularly in critical care, are susceptible to many complications affecting morbidity and mortality. Digitized clinical data in electronic medical records can be effectively used to develop machine ...
Topic model-based mass spectrometric data analysis in cancer biomarker discovery studies
Background: A fundamental challenge in quantitation of biomolecules for cancer biomarker discovery is owing to the heterogeneous nature of human biospecimens. Although this issue has been a subject of discussion in cancer ...
Low Complexity Compression and Speed Enhancement for Optical Scanning Holography
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-06)
Environmental Information Improves Robotic Search Performance
(Virginia Tech, 2016)
We address the problem where a mobile search agent seeks to find an unknown number of stationary objects distributed in a bounded search domain, and the search mission is subject to time/distance constraint. Our work ...
A Modest Proposal for Open Market Risk Assessment to Solve the Cyber-Security Problem
(Virginia Tech, 2016-04-29)
We introduce a model for a market based economic system of cyber-risk valuation to correct fundamental problems of incentives within the information technology and information processing industries. We assess the makeup ...
Towards Optimal Secure Distributed Storage Systems with Exact Repair
Distributed storage systems in the presence of a wiretapper are considered. A distributed storage system (DSS) is parameterized by three parameters (𝑛, 𝑘, 𝑑), in which a file stored across n distributed nodes, can be ...
A Machine Learning Approach to Predict Gene Regulatory Networks in Seed Development in Arabidopsis
(Frontiers Media, 2016-12-23)
Thermal stability and electrical conductivity of carbon-enriched silicon oxycarbide
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-01-28)
Silicon oxycarbide (SiOC) is an interesting polymer-derived system that can be tailored to embody many different properties such as lightweight, electrochemical activity, and high temperature stability. One intriguing ...
Investigation of helium at a Y2Ti2O7 nanocluster embedded in a BCC Fe matrix
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-10-18)
Nanostructured ferritic alloys (NFAs) are prime candidates for structural and first wall components of fission and fusion reactors. The main reason for this is their ability to effectively withstand high concentrations of ...
Spun-wrapped aligned nanofiber (SWAN) lithography for fabrication of micro/nano-structures on 3D objects
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-06-01)
Fabrication of micro/nano-structures on irregularly shaped substrates and three-dimensional (3D) objects is of significant interest in diverse technological fields. However, it remains a formidable challenge thwarted by ...
