OBJECTIVE The FOUR (Full Outline of UnResponsiveness) score is a new coma scale that consists of 4 components (eye, motor, brainstem, and respiration). The scale was recently validated, but variability among nursing staff has been documented. PATIENTS AND METHODS We prospectively studied the FOUR score in 80 patients with acute neurologic disease in an(More)
A key aspect of any data integration endeavor is determining the relationships between the source schemata and the target schema. This schema integration task must be tackled regardless of the integration architecture or mapping formalism. In this paper, we provide a task model for schema integration. We use this breakdown to motivate a workbench for schema(More)
The purpose of this project was to create a teaching module and evaluation tool for the prehospital assessment of patients with head injuries using the Full Outline of UnResponsiveness (FOUR) Score scale. The teaching module consisted of an overview of brain injury scales, general characteristics of the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and the FOUR Score,(More)
OpenII (openintegration.org) is a collaborative effort to create a suite of open-source tools for information integration (II). The project is leveraging the latest developments in II research to create a platform on which integration tools can be built and further research conducted. In addition to a scalable, extensible platform, OpenII includes(More)
Large, dynamic, and ad-hoc organizations must frequently initiate data integration and sharing efforts with insufficient awareness of how organizational data sources are related. Decision makers need to reason about data model interactions much as they do about data instance interactions in OLAP: at multiple levels of granularity. We demonstrate an(More)
This demonstration presents Galaxy, a schema manager that facilitates easy and correct data sharing among autonomous but related, evolving data sources. Galaxy reduces heterogeneity by helping database developers identify, reuse, customize, and advertise related schema components. The central idea is that as schemata are customized, Galaxy maintains a(More)
This paper describes a Name Matching Evaluation Laboratory that is a joint effort across multiple projects. The lab houses our evaluation infrastructure as well as multiple name matching engines and customized analytical tools. Included is an explanation of the methodology used by the lab to carry out evaluations. This methodology is based on standard(More)
Many data sharing communities create data standards (“hub” schemata) to speed information integration by increasing reuse of both data definitions and mappings. Unfortunately, creation of these standards and the mappings to the enterprise's implemented systems is both time consuming and expensive. This paper presents Unity, a novel tool for(More)
In this demonstration, we exhibit a new type of provenance system, one that is not tied to any particular domain, closed-world system or use. The PLUS provenance system was inspired by government requirements to enable provenance capture, storage and use across multi-organizational systems. PLUS is general enough to interact across open-world distributed(More)
Whereas strategies for discovering content on the surface web are commonplace, similar strategies for the private web are nonexistent. In this paper we first establish a formal framework for advertising the existence of private web resources that subsumes many existing summarization strategies based on succinct statistical summaries (which we call digests).(More)
