Microsoft robotics studio (MSRS) was publicly released in December 2006 with the explicit goal of providing an industry software standard for robot control. To become a viable standard, several technical challenges needed to be solved. In this article, we examine the composition of MSRS, looking generally at its architecture and specifically at its(More)
Cloud computing has emerged as a new approach to large scale computing and is attracting a lot of attention from the scientific and research computing communities. Despite its growing popularity, it is still unclear just how well the cloud model of computation will serve scientific applications. In this paper we analyze the applicability of cloud to the(More)
Two series of (N-benzylpiperidin-4-yl)- and (9-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan- 3 beta-yl)benzamides were prepared, and in vitro binding assays were used to measure the affinity of these compounds for dopamine D2, dopamine D3, serotonin 5-HT2, and alpha 2-adrenergic receptors. The results of these studies indicated compounds 23, 26b, and 34 have the selectivity(More)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most well-characterized late-onset, complex trait diseases. Remarkable advances in our understanding of the genetic and biological foundations of this disease were derived from a recent convergence of scientific and clinical data. Importantly, the more recent identification of AMD-associated variations in(More)
As the emergence of cloud computing brings the potential for large-scale data analysis to a broader community, architectural patterns for data analysis on the cloud, especially those addressing iterative algorithms, are increasingly useful. MapReduce suffers performance limitations for this purpose as it is not inherently designed for iterative algorithms.(More)
eScience has established itself as a key pillar in scientific discovery, continuing the evolution of the scientific discovery process from theoretical to empirical to computational science [13]. Extensive deployment of instruments and sensors that observe the physical and biological world are bringing in large and diverse data to the reach of scientists.(More)
