The overall goal of the TraumAID project is to improve the delivery of quality trauma care during the initial definitive phase of patient management. To this end, we are applying artificial intelligence techniques such as rule-based reasoning, planning, and plan inference. The current system, TraumAID 2.0, consists of (1) an electronic version of the(More)
This document proposes an array of recommendations for a National Plan of Action to accelerate the discovery and development of therapies to delay or prevent the onset of disabling symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. A number of key scientific and public-policy needs identified in this document will be incorporated by the Alzheimer Study Group into a broader(More)
We present a 3D graphical system that allows users to visualize different penetration path hypotheses for (multiple) gunshot or stab wounds, using a 3D graphical model of a human body with appropriate anatomical structures. The system also identifies the anatomical structures associated with each hypothesis. The various penetration path hypotheses follow(More)
Injuries in trauma affect anatomical structures, indirectly affecting physiological systems through mechanical behavior and physical proximity. This paper describes the theory for and preliminary results from our approach to couple a three-dimensional (3-D) anatomical model of the chest with a physiological model of respiratory mechanics. In particular, we(More)
In this paper we describe a preliminary modeling and analysis of a unique data set comprising unobtrusive and continuous measurements of gait velocity in the elder participants' residences. The data have been collected as a part of a longitudinal study aimed at early detection of cognitive decline. We motivate these analyses by first presenting evidence(More)
The use of in-home and mobile sensing is likely to be a key component of future care and has recently been studied by many research groups world-wide. Researchers have shown that embedded sensors can be used for health assessment such as early illness detection and the management of chronic health conditions. However, research collaboration and data sharing(More)
Transparency International (TI) is the world's leading non-governmental anti-corruption organisation. With more than 100 Chapters worldwide, TI has extensive global expertise and understanding of corruption. Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is the UK chapter of TI. We raise awareness about corruption; advocate legal and regulatory reform at national(More)
In trauma, many injuries impact anatomical structures, which may in turn affect physiological processes--not only those processes within the structures, but ones occurring in physical proximity to them as well. Our goal is to endow a 3D anatomical model with physiological mechanisms to demonstrate such effects. Our approach couples deformable object(More)
idaea L. and Calluna vulgaris L. In early June 2000, the trees on three plots were girdled at 1.5-m above ground, by complete removal of the bark over 0.3-m long sections around the circumferences of the stems (early girdled plots). In mid-August 2000, we girdled the trees on three other plots (late girdled plots). On both occasions, it took 2 people 4 days(More)
