Visual inspection of neuroimagery is susceptible to human eye limitations. Computerized methods have been shown to be equally or more e↵ective than human clinicians in diagnosing dementia from neuroimages. Nevertheless , much of the work involves the use of domain expertise to extract hand–crafted features. The key technique in this paper is the use of(More)
RAMCloud is a storage system that provides low-latency access to large-scale datasets. To achieve low latency, RAMCloud stores all data in DRAM at all times. To support large capacities (1PB or more), it aggregates the memories of thousands of servers into a single coherent key-value store. RAMCloud ensures the durability of DRAM-based data by keeping(More)
Due to increase in use of Short Message Service (SMS) over mobile phones in developing countries, there has been a burst of spam SMSes. Content-based machine learning approaches were effective in filtering email spams. Researchers have used topical and stylistic features of the SMS to classify spam and ham. SMS spam filtering can be largely influenced by(More)
Grid computing is the combination of computer resources from multiple administrative domains for a common goal. Grid computing (or the use of a computational grid) is applying the resources of many computers in a network to a single problem at the same time — usually to solve a scientific or technical problem that requires a great number of computer(More)
Web-based enterprises process events generated by millions of users interacting with their websites. Rich statistical data distilled from combining such interactions in near real-time generates enormous business value. In this paper, we describe the architecture of Photon, a geographically distributed system for joining multiple continuously flowing streams(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Fungal infections-related immune reconstitution syndrome (IRS) poses challenging diagnostic and management issues in immunocompromised hosts. This review summarizes the current state of knowledge regarding its pathophysiologic basis, presentation, and treatment strategies. RECENT FINDINGS Existing evidence suggests that IRS is a state of(More)
BACKGROUND Vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) the hallmark of sickle cell disease (SCD) is often treated inadequately in the emergency department (ED). We hypothesized that pain management plans individualized for each patient can improve pain management and lead to high levels of patient satisfaction. PROCEDURE Starting in 2002, we treated all patients with SCD(More)
