— 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(More)
OBJECTIVE Treatment of status epilepticus (SE) has not changed in the last few decades, benzodiazepines plus phenytoin or valproate being the most common treatment. Once this first and second line treatment has failed SE is considered refractory (RSE). This study aimed to assess the efficacy and tolerability of intravenous (iv) lacosamide (LCM) in RSE. (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)
BACKGROUND Pre-treatment with antiplatelet agents (AP) is present amongst 30% of acute stroke patients. Previous studies have shown conflicting results on the effect of these drugs regarding haemorrhagic transformation after thrombolytic therapy. The hypothesis that pre-treatment with AP may increase the risk of cerebral haemorrhage (ICH) after intravenous(More)
To refine off-the-desktop user experiences, testing of interaction logic is essential. Experimenting with such interactions is harder than with normal GUI code as real-time input data may be time-intensive to obtain or may not be available at all. In addition, recognition-based interactions need to be tested on many cases to ensure robustness. To address(More)
1 Introduction 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(More)
INTRODUCTION The 90-day risk of cerebral infarction in patients with transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is estimated at between 8% and 20%. There is little consensus as to which diagnostic strategy is most effective. This study evaluates the benefits of early transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) with carotid and transcranial Doppler ultrasound in patients(More)
