INTRODUCTION Ultrasound of the lung and quantification of B lines was recently introduced as a novel tool to detect overhydration. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate a four-region protocol of lung ultrasound to determine the pulmonary fluid status in ventilated patients in the intensive care unit. METHODS Fifty patients underwent both lung(More)
Modern films, games and virtual reality applications are dependent on convincing computer graphics. Highly complex models are a requirement for the successful delivery of many scenes and environments. While workflows such as rendering, compositing and animation have been streamlined to accommodate increasing demands, modelling complex models is still a(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to procedural generation of urban maps for First Person Shooter (FPS) games. A multi-agent evolutionary system is employed to place streets, buildings and other items inside the Unity3D game engine, resulting in playable video game levels. A computational agent is trained using machine learning techniques to capture the(More)
Objective. Patients with neutropenic sepsis have a poor prognosis. We aimed to identify outcome predictors and generate hypotheses how the care for these patients may be improved. Methods. All 12.352 patients admitted between 2006 and 2011 to the medical ICUs of our tertiary university center were screened for neutropenia; out of 558 patients identified,(More)
Educational spaces within a university campus have traditionally been seen as a lecture theatre with an area set aside for tutorials. In the case of a computer-based teaching programme, this has been a computer lab, with projector, screen and lecturer at the front of the room. All teaching has usually been in semi-darkness and, as the work is(More)
Adigital seal is acryptographically signed 2D barcode printed on adocu-ment to verify the document'sauthenticity and integrity.I norder to secure aprinted image against tampering, ac ompact image hash can be stored inside the barcode. We investigate and experimentally evaluate various methods from the areas of image hashing and face verification w.r.t. its(More)
Film, television and media production are subject to consistent change due to ever-evolving technological and economic environments. Accordingly, tertiary teaching of subject areas such as cinema, animation and visual effects require frequent adjustments regarding curriculum structure and pedagogy. This paper discusses a multifaceted, cross-disciplinary(More)

This report is written by a group of Tufts graduate students for Sustainable Belmont (SB), a subgroup of the Vision 21 town committee in Belmont, MA. The purpose of this report is to help SB start to formulate a climate action plan (CAP) for the Town of Belmont. A CAP is an instrument to assess greenhouse gas emissions, create emission target goals and(More)
