053 The circumstellar disks of gas and dust around newly formed stars are believed to be the birthplaces of giant planets. In some protoplanetary disks, evidence of gaps or inner cavities has been revealed through analysis of the infrared spectral energy distribution (SED; e.g., [1]) or interferometry at infrared (e.g., [2]) or millimeter wavelengths (e.g.,(More)
Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) is the most frequently occurring cancer in Mozambique among men and the second most frequently occurring cancer among women. Effective therapeutic treatments for KS are poorly understood in this area. There is an unmet need to develop a simple but accurate tool for improved monitoring and diagnosis in a resource-limited setting.(More)
In the 1980s, excess infrared emission was discovered around main-sequence stars; subsequent direct-imaging observations revealed orbiting disks of cold dust to be the source. These 'debris disks' were thought to be by-products of planet formation because they often exhibited morphological and brightness asymmetries that may result from gravitational(More)
HiCIAO is a high contrast instrument which works with a 188 element adaptive optics system (AO188) for the Subaru Telescope. The instrument is specifically designed for extrasolar planet search and studies of proto-planetary or debris disks. A coronagraph technique and some differential observing modes implemented in HiCIAO extract faint objects from the(More)
This paper describes the design and development of an iOS app for selfie search, which combines face detection and recognition capabilities with content-based image retrieval techniques. The app works offline, since all processing takes place entirely on the device. It was implemented in Objective-C and it leverages functionality from Apple's Core Image API(More)
A new system for 3D clinical imaging was recently developed that takes a 2D image and converts it into a 3D image. This is incredibly useful in the medical imaging world as it is cost effective, easy to use, and non-invasive. We seek to improve the algorithm and software coding used to create 3D images so that it is compatible with other cameras and(More)
