A novel niosome formulation is proposed for topical drug delivery of ammonium glycyrrhizinate, a natural compound with an efficacious anti-inflammatory activity. Niosomes were made up of a new non ionic surfactant, alpha,omega-hexadecyl-bis-(1-aza-18-crown-6) (Bola-surfactant)-Span 80-cholesterol (2:3:1 molar ratio). Niosome vesicles were prepared with the(More)
The aim of this paper is to evaluate the level of flooding in proximity of sensible targets in urban areas using only one Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image. To this purpose a two-step algorithm is here proposed: first the flooded areas are detected in the SAR image; and then the water level is retrieved by inverting scattering models developed for urban(More)
Interaction designers typically revise user interface prototypes by adding unstructured notes to storyboards and screen printouts. How might computational tools increase the efficacy of UI revision? This paper introduces d.note, a revision tool for user interfaces expressed as control flow diagrams. d.note introduces a command set for modifying and(More)
Traditionally, AI research for games has focused on developing static strategies—fixed maps from the game state to a set of actions—which maximize the probability of victory. This works well for discovering facts about the game itself, and can be very successfully applied to combinatorial games like chess and checkers, where the personality and play style(More)
The goal of this study was to predict the genders of players of the online game Second Life using linguistic patterns from their chat data. This was accomplished using a rich set of stylistic features combined with various machine learning models. This project builds upon a previous study done at Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab in which very few(More)
