1 Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is managed for the U.S. Department of Energy by Battelle Memorial Institute under Contract DE-AC06-76Rl0-1830. ABSTRACT This invited paper describes a vision and progress towards a fundamentally new approach for dealing with the massive information overload situation of the emerging global information age. Today we(More)
The benefit of chemotherapy for surgically resected intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) remains poorly defined. The present study sought to determine the survival impact of chemotherapy for surgically resected ICC. Patients with non-metastatic ICC who underwent surgery were identified from the National Cancer Database (1998–2011) and stratified by receipt(More)
A proliferation of mast cells around the small pulmonary blood vessels and the alveolar septae has been noted in models of pulmonary hypertension, and in plexiform lesions of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in patients. Here, we hypothesize that total mast cell numbers and activation are increased in PAH and that they contribute to vascular remodeling(More)
Motivation – Anticipate outcomes through predictive and proactive reasoning across domains as diverse as energy, security, the environment, health and finance in order to maximize opportunities and counter adversities. Research approach – New methods for anticipatory critical thinking have been developed that implement a multi-perspective approach to(More)
To gain insight and understanding of complex information collections, users must be able to visualize and explore many facets of the information. This paper presents several novel visual methods from an information analyst’s perspective. We present a sample scenario, using the various methods to gain a variety of insights from a large information(More)
In the event of a natural disaster such as hurricane or earthquake, estimating the extent of damage is necessary for implementing fast and effective recovery measures. Images of affected areas are easily obtained through satellite or aerial sensors. The key objects of interest in such images are buildings, as damage directly impacts lives. This work aims to(More)
Flash ladar systems are compact devices with high frame rates that hold promise for robotics applications, but these devices suffer from poor spatial resolution. This work develops a wavelet preprocessing stage to enhance registration of multiple frames and applies super-resolution to improve the resolution of flash ladar range imagery. The triangle(More)
This paper supplements a video clip submitted to the Video Track of IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization 2005. The original video submission applies a two-way storytelling approach to demonstrate the visual analytics capabilities of a new visualization technique. The paper presents our video production philosophy, describes the plot of the video,(More)
