Improving the Adversarial Robustness and Interpretability of Deep Neural Networks by Regularizing their Input Gradients
In this work, we evaluate the effectiveness of defenses that differentiably penalize the degree to which small changes in inputs can alter model predictions. Expand
Right for the Right Reasons: Training Differentiable Models by Constraining their Explanations
We introduce a method for efficiently explaining and regularizing differentiable models by examining and selectively penalizing their input gradients, which provide a normal to the decision boundary. Expand
Long-term follow-up of complete Barrett's eradication endoscopic mucosal resection (CBE-EMR) for the treatment of high grade dysplasia and intramucosal carcinoma.
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS In patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE), targeted endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of visible lesions of high grade dysplasia (HGD) or intramucosal adenocarcinoma (IMC)… Expand
A quarantine process for the resolution of duodenoscope-associated transmission of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli.
BACKGROUND Because of their complex design, duodenoscopes have been long recognized to be difficult to fully disinfect and may play a role in transmission of bacteria between patients. Recent reports… Expand
Long-term outcomes associated with pancreatic extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for chronic calcific pancreatitis.
BACKGROUND Most outcomes data on pancreatic extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (P-ESWL) for chronic calcific pancreatitis (CCP) are based on studies with <4 years' follow-up, and U.S. long-term… Expand
Enrichment and analysis of phosphopeptides under different experimental conditions using titanium dioxide affinity chromatography and mass spectrometry.
Titanium dioxide metal oxide affinity chromatography (TiO(2)-MOAC) is widely regarded as being more selective than immobilized metal-ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) for phosphopeptide enrichment.… Expand

The purpose of this study was to evaluate personal exposure to metalworking fluid (MWF) aerosols in very small machine shops (1-8 machinists per shop) and to investigate workplace factors associated… Expand
Characterization of copper-complexing ligands in seawater using immobilized copper(II)-ion affinity chromatography and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry
Abstract Electrochemical studies show that copper and other bioactive trace metals are associated almost exclusively with dissolved organic ligands in surface seawater. Some of these ligands may be… Expand
