In the many-core era, scalable coherence and on-chip interconnects are crucial for shared memory processors. While snoopy coherence is common in small multicore systems, directory-based coherence is the de facto choice for scalability to many cores, as snoopy relies on ordered interconnects which do not scale. However, directory-based coherence does not(More)
Yes, but the extent of the benefit is unclear. Treating patients with early-stage Alzheimer's disease yields statistically significant, though perhaps not clinically significant, improvement in cognition and global function. In a few cases, it may delay loss of function and need for long-term care. Treating patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI)-the(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a common condition associated with metabolic syndrome. It is the most common cause of elevated liver enzymes in U.S. adults, and is diagnosed after ruling out other causes of steatosis (fatty infiltration of liver), particularly infectious hepatitis and alcohol abuse. Liver biopsy may be considered if greater diagnostic(More)
Addressing the challenges of extreme scale computing requires holistic design of new programming models and systems that support those models. This paper discusses the Angstrom processor, which is designed to support a new Self-aware Computing (SEEC) model. In SEEC, applications explicitly state goals, while other systems components provide actions that the(More)
—We present a dynamic verification tool MCC for Multicore Communication API applications – a new API for communication among cores. MCC systematically explores all relevant interleavings of an MCAPI application using a tailor-made dynamic partial order reduction algorithm (DPOR). Our contributions are (i) a way to model the non-overtaking message matching(More)
Three years ago, our residency program began a new approach to teaching practice management to our second- and third-year residents. The underlying principles for the new curriculum involved a realization that our residents lacked basic business understanding and that they would likely learn more effectively through a hands-on approach. The new curriculum,(More)
