We describe a system that attempts to predict the continuation of a symbolically encoded tabla composition at each time step using a variable-length n-gram model. Using cross-entropy as a measure of model fit, the best model attained an entropy rate of 0.780 in a cross-validation experiment , showing that symbolic tabla compositions can be effectively… (More)
A mixed media tool was created that promotes ensemble virtuosity through tight coordination and interdepence in musical performance. Two different types of performers interact with a virtual space using Wii remote and tangible interfaces using the reacTIVision toolkit . One group of performers uses a tangible tabletop interface to place and move sound… (More)
BACKGROUND The Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) contains many important ontologies in which terms are connected by semantic relations. For many studies on the relationships between biomedical concepts, the use of transitively associated information from ontologies and the UMLS has been shown to be effective. Although there are a few tools and methods… (More)
This statement describes LOLC, a text-based collaborative music improvisation environment for laptop ensemble developed at Georgia Tech and presented in performance by the authors at the Creativity and Cognition conference.
Efficiently mining multiple drug interactions and reactions from Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS) is a challenging problem which has not been sufficiently addressed by existing methods. To tackle this challenge, we propose a FCI-fliter approach which leverages the efforts of UMLS mapping, frequent closed itemset mining, and uninformative association… (More)
Phonological feature structure is inherently multidimensional, and decades' worth of research in acoustic phonetics has documented both the complex mappings between features and associated acoustic cues as well as the prosodic modulation of these mappings. Most previous studies have focused on how the mean values of acoustic cues vary in complex ways across… (More)
Studies on SNP correlations have been focused on SNPs located on the same chromosome since SNPs on different chromosomes are expected to segregate randomly. Previous studies suggest that SNPs can be associated with each other over long distances and even across different chromosomes. To facilitate the study of SNP associations, our goal is to find SNPs that… (More)
Within studies of loanword phonology over the past two decades, the issue that has received the most attention is whether unfaithful adaptation patterns are primarily caused by misperception at the psychoacoustic level (Peperkamp 2005), reinterpretation by the native phonology (LaCharité & Paradis 2005), or some combination of both (Kubozono 2006). The data… (More)
