Many injury severity scoring tools have been developed over the past few decades. These tools include the Injury Severity Score (ISS), New ISS (NISS), Trauma and Injury Severity Score (TRISS) and International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-based Injury Severity Score (ICISS). Although many studies have endeavored to determine the ability of these tools(More)
BACKGROUND As demand for Emergency Department (ED) services continues to exceed increases explained by population growth, strategies to reduce ED presentations are being explored. The concept of ambulance paramedics providing an alternative model of care to the current default 'see and transport to ED' has intuitive appeal and has been implemented in(More)
— With power consumption becoming a critical processor design issue, specialized architectures for low power processing are becoming popular. Several studies have shown that neural networks can be used for signal processing and pattern recognition applications. This study examines the design of memristor based multicore neural processors that would be used(More)

The Blossom V algorithm is used in graph theory to compute a perfect matching of minimum cost. We conducted performance studies on the algorithm using the maya cluster in the UMBC High Performance Computing Facility to better understand the performance capabilities and emphasize potential approaches for improvement. In the performance studies, we varied the(More)
Contention of communications across a switched network that connects multiple compute nodes in a distributed-memory cluster may seriously degrade performance of parallel code. The InfiniBand network is the most popular interconnect for compute clusters. While one may correctly assume that increased resource contention leads to decreased application(More)
