The mouse autosomal recessive mutation progressive motor neuronopathy (pmn) results in early onset motor neuron disease with rapidly progressive hindlimb paralysis, severe muscular wasting, and death at around 6 weeks of age. This mutant provides opportunities for testing novel therapeutic strategies, including the administration of trophic factors, to(More)
We consider the learning of a distance metric, using the Localized Supervised Metric Learning (LSML) scheme, that discriminates entities characterized by high dimensional feature attributes, with respect to labels assigned to each entity. LSML is a supervised learning scheme that learns a Mahalanobis distance grouping together features with the same label(More)
I present the design and implementation of a peer-to-peer application framework. The framework improves user experience and helps developers write better applications. Developers get an open, decentralized, and extensible platform upon which they can build a wide variety of new applications with few technical or political limitations. Users get a platform(More)
