The objective of this study was to compare and contrast two techniques of modeling mortality in a 30 bed multi-disciplinary ICU; neural networks and logistic regression. Fifteen physiological variables were recorded on day 3 for 422 consecutive patients whose duration of stay was over 72 hours. Two separate models were built using each technique. First,… (More)

There is considerable interest in achieving a 1000 fold increase in supercomputing power in the next decade, but the challenges are formidable. The need to significantly decrease power usage and drastically increase energy efficiency has become pervasive in the high performance computing community, extending from chip design to data center design and… (More)
BACKGROUND In 2015, the Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium (MRC) implemented an advanced perfusion and reperfusion life support strategy designed to improve outcome for patients with out-of-hospital refractory ventricular fibrillation/ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT). We report the outcomes of the initial 3-month period of operations. METHODS AND RESULTS… (More)
Disentangling significant and important log messages from those that are routine and unimportant can be a difficult task. Further, on a new system, understanding correlations between significant and possibly new types of messages and conditions that cause them can require significant effort and time. The initial standup of a machine can provide… (More)

Background: The Committee on the Status of Women in Anthropology (COSWA) is committed to equal opportunity for anthropologists in all work settings. Recognizing that a significant number of anthropology PhDs and nearly all alumni from master's programs are employed in positions other than as full-time university and college professors, in 2004 COSWA… (More)
Six male and six female subjects were given 112 trials on each of two tasks requiring a yes-no comparison of pairs of letters presented to the right and left hemispheres. One task was predominantly visual (detection of curved letter segments) and the other was predominantly verbal (detection of rhyming "ee" sounds). It was found that for "yes" decisions,… (More)
