1. To evaluate effective and cognitive dysfunctions in subjects with a marginal form of thyroid hypofunction the authors studied a population of female goiter patients, divided in two groups on the basis of thyroid function: euthyroidism and subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). 2. The SCH patients were treated with levothyroxine (LT4) in order to obtain(More)
Graphics processing units (GPUs) can deliver considerable performance gains over general purpose processors. However, GPU performance improvement vary considerably across applications. Porting applications to GPUs by rewriting code with GPU-specific languages requires significant effort. In consequence, it is desirable to predict which applications would(More)
Creating mobile applications often requires both client and server-side code development, each requiring vastly different skills. Recently, cloud providers like Amazon and Google introduced "server-less" programming models that abstract away many infrastructure concerns and allow developers to focus on their application logic. In this demonstration, we(More)
This work revisits precomputation prefetching targeting long access latency loads with access patterns that are hard to predict. It presents Ekivolos, a precomputation prefetcher system that automatically builds prefetching slices that contain enough control flow instructions to faithfully and autonomously recreate the program's access behavior without(More)
Canary testing is an emerging technique that offers to minimize the risk of deploying a new version of software. It does so by slowly transferring load from the current to the new ("canary") version. As this ramp-up progresses, a human compares the performance and correctness of the two versions, and assesses whether to abort the canary version. For canary(More)
—This paper describes the Liquid Metal entry in the 2013 ICFPT Design Competition. The Liquid Metal system provides a high-level language called Lime and a toolchain targeting FPGAs. Lime allowed us to use standard software development processes for programming, debugging, and performance tuning our FPGA design. We believe such iteration and refinement are(More)
