The work reported in this paper proposes Swarm-Array computing, a novel technique inspired by swarm robotics, and built on the foundations of autonomic and parallel computing. The approach aims to apply autonomic computing constructs to parallel computing systems and in effect achieve the self-ware objectives that describe self-managing systems. The(More)
The article gives a wake up call on the need of an organized effort in robotics education. A brief overview of the special issue of the International Journal of Engineering Education, which offered some insight into the current trends in robotics education, is given. A range of robotics programs that can be offered at the bachelor's degree level and how(More)
An 80-year old man presented with shortness of breath and was found to have a large right pleural effusion. Cytology of the pleural fluid showed atypical papillary clusters of epithelioid cells. Multiple white-yellow nodules studding the pleural surfaces were seen at thoracoscopy, and biopsies showed solid and papillary clusters of large epithelioid cells(More)
BACKGROUND Fine-needle aspiration cytology plays an important role in the preoperative diagnosis of palpable masses as well as impalpable lesions that can only be sampled by stereotactic or ultrasound techniques. A further refinement of cytologic diagnosis would be the ability to distinguish among the different types of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) also(More)
This paper reports on the development of an online environment supporting a network-based robotics educational project. The project was undertaken by a large body of students and involved adding a level of intelligence to control a toy device that was accessible remotely over the network. The students were to design and implement a stop-look-act control(More)
