Distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) applications have become critical in domains such as avionics (e.g., flight mission computers), telecommunications (e.g., wireless phone services), tele-medicine (e.g., robotic surgery), and defense applications (e.g., total ship computing environments). DRE applications are increasingly composed of multiple systems(More)
Elevated β-amyloid and impaired synaptic function in hippocampus are among the earliest manifestations of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Most cognitive assessments employed in both humans and animal models, however, are insensitive to this early disease pathology. One critical aspect of hippocampal function is its role in episodic memory, which involves the(More)
Quality of service (QoS)-enabled publish/subscribe services are available in component middle-ware platforms, such as the CORBA Component Model (CCM). Today, however, these platforms lack a simple and intuitive way to integrate publish/subscribe service configurations and deployments. This paper illustrates how generative model-driven techniques and tools(More)
Computational modeling predicts that the hippocampus plays an important role in the ability to apply previously learned information to novel problems and situations (referred to as the ability to generalize information or simply as 'transfer learning'). These predictions have been tested in humans using a computer-based task on which individuals with(More)
Although component-based software development has widespread acceptance in the enterprise business and desktop application domains, developers of distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) systems have encountered limitations with the available component middleware platforms, such as the CORBA Component Model (CCM) and the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE).(More)
1 Abstract—Mobile handheld devices communicating over wireless networks now represent a capable, robust, cost-effective, usable platform for enterprise mobile solutions. These solutions must be manageable, secure, scalable, and capable of integration with other enterprise components. The scale of enterprise mobile solution deployments demands high levels of(More)

Executive Summary Appalachian Kentucky is a region rich with cultural heritage, natural resources, and scenic beauty. Yet, the majority of the 55 counties that comprise this region fall within the lowest 10% of American counties by income level, and the area's average per capita market income is only $16,923, contributing to a 24.8 percent poverty rate(More)
Image-based search has become an increasingly active area of research. Despite the fact that many resources have been spent on creating new ideas and improving existing algorithms and designs, existing image-based search engines do not provide scalability or accuracy that is even remotely close to today's text-based search engines. The challenges in(More)
