In a cloud Nirvana, boundaries, both physically and artificially created by various types of constraints, imposed on the users would be removed. We propose a three-stage plan toward achieving a cloud computing Nirvana. The three stages are named(More)
Clinical trials to evaluate multichannel cochlear implantation in children ages 2 to 17 years began in late 1986, with pre-market approval granted in 1990.
