We present a model of visual computation based on tightly inter-connected cliques of pyramidal cells. It leads to a formal theory of cell assemblies, a specific relationship between correlated firing patterns and abstract functionality, and a direct calculation relating estimates of cortical cell counts to orientation hyperacuity. Our network architecture(More)
The current MPI model defines a one-to-one relationship between MPI processes and MPI ranks. This model captures many use cases effectively, such as one MPI process per core and one MPI process per node. However, this semantic has limited interoperability between MPI and other programming models that use threads within a node. In this paper, we describe an(More)
0 n April 16, 1993 the White House announced the Escrowed Encryption Initiative, " a voluntary program to improve security and privacy of telephone communications while meeting the legitimate needs of law enforcement. " The initiative included a chip for encryption (Clipper), to be incorporated into telecommunications equipment, and a scheme under which(More)
Telomeres distinguish chromosome ends from double-strand breaks (DSBs) and prevent chromosome fusion. However, telomeres can also interfere with DNA repair, as shown by a deficiency in nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) and an increase in large deletions at telomeric DSBs. The sensitivity of telomeric regions to DSBs is important in the cellular response to(More)
The caps on the ends of chromosomes, called telomeres, keep the ends of chromosomes from appearing as DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) and prevent chromosome fusion. However, subtelomeric regions are sensitive to DSBs, which in normal cells is responsible for ionizing radiation-induced cell senescence and protection against oncogene-induced replication(More)
