Pheochromocytomas and extra-adrenal paragangliomas (PHEO/PGLs) are rare catecholamine-producing chromaffin cell tumors. For metastatic disease, no effective therapy is available. Overexpression of somatostatin type 2 receptors (SSTR2) in PHEO/PGLs promotes interest in applying therapies using somatostatin analogs linked to radionuclides and/or cytotoxic(More)
Porting applications to new hardware or programming models is a tedious and error prone process. Every help that eases these burdens is saving developer time that can then be invested into the advancement of the application itself instead of preserving the status-quo on a new platform. The Alpaka library defines and implements an abstract hierarchical(More)
For reasoning over streams of data ontology-based data access is a common approach. The method for answering conjunctive queries (CQs) over DL-Lite ontologies in this setting is by rewritings of the query and evaluation of the resulting query by a data base engine. For stream-based applications the classical expressivity of DL-Lite lacks means to handle(More)
With the appearance of the heterogeneous platform Open-Power, many-core accelerator devices have been coupled with Power host processors for the first time. Towards utilizing their full potential, it is worth investigating performance portable algorithms that allow to choose the best-fitting hardware for each domain-specific compute task. Suiting even the(More)
Ontologies play a central role in semantic applications: by providing semantics to the given data, they support the integration and automated processing of knowledge. Systems for ontology-based data access do however not take into account both the fuzzy and the temporal nature of the knowledge, which is often inherent in real-world data. In this paper, we(More)
Fuzzy Description Logics (FDLs) generalize crisp ones by providing membership degree semantics. To offer efficient query answering for FDLs it is desirable to extend the rewriting-based approach for DL-Lite to its fuzzy variants. For answering conjunctive queries over fuzzy DL-LiteR ontologies we present an approach, that employs the crisp rewriting as a(More)
The indication for the scintigraphy of the thyroid gland can essentially be restricted by the primary application of sonography. Indications for the scintigraphy of the thyroid gland are: Suspicion to malignity and autonomy as well as the clarification of restrosternal strumata and euthyroid strumata with multiple nodes.
