BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Admission infarct core lesion size is an important determinant of management and outcome in acute (<9 hours) stroke. Our purposes were to: (1) determine the optimal CT perfusion parameter to define infarct core using various postprocessing platforms; and (2) establish the degree of variability in threshold values between these(More)
BACKGROUND Therapy with drug-eluting microspheres was recently introduced with an aim to decrease the high postoperative morbidity associated with chemoembolization with lipiodol. The purpose of our study was to assess the safety and efficacy of chemoembolization with doxorubicin-eluting microspheres (DEB-TACE) for inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).(More)
The widespread use of IoT devices has opened the possibilities for many innovative applications. Almost all of these applications involve analyzing complex data streams with low latency requirements. In this regard, pattern recognition methods based on CEP have the potential to provide solutions for analyzing and correlating these complex data streams in(More)
The advent of IoT has resulted in a trend towards more innovative and automated applications. In this regard, occupancy detection plays an important role in many smart building applications such as controlling heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) systems, monitoring systems and managing lighting systems. Most of the current techniques for detecting(More)
Most of the IoT applications are distributed in nature generating large data streams which have to be analyzed in near real-time. Solutions based on Complex Event Processing (CEP) have the potential to extract high-level knowledge from these data streams but the use of CEP for distributed IoT applications is still in early phase and involves many drawbacks.(More)
The use of robots in situations that can be too dangerous for human intervention is growing. One such use is the deployment of robots for fire fighting. This paper is based on the construction of a robot for a contest aimed at simulating this real-world scenario. The paper will discuss the design of a fully autonomous fire fighting robot which is able to(More)
As sensors are adopted in almost all fields of life, the Internet of Things (IoT) is triggering a massive influx of data. We need efficient and scalable methods to process this data to gain valuable insight and take timely action. Existing approaches which support both batch processing (suitable for analysis of large historical data sets) and event(More)
The requirements of analyzing heterogeneous data streams and detecting complex patterns in near real-time have raised the prospect of complex event processing (CEP) for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Although CEP provides a scalable and distributed solution for analyzing complex data streams on the fly, it is designed for reactive applications(More)
