This paper presents the results of our investigation of code positioning techniques using execution profile data as input into the compilation process. The primary objective of the positioning is to reduce the overhead of the instruction memory hierarchy. After initial investigation in the literature, we decided to implement two prototypes for the(More)
In recent years, many architectural design efforts have focused on maximizing performance for frequently executed, simple instructions. Although these efforts have resulted in machines with better average price/performance ratios, certain complex instructions and, thus, certain classes of programs which heavily depend on these instructions may suffer by(More)
The intrinsic dimensionality of a set of patterns is important in determining an appropriate number of features for representing the data and whether a reasonable two- or three-dimensional representation of the data exists. We propose an intuitively appealing, noniterative estimator for intrinsic dimensionality which is based on nearneighbor information. We(More)
BACKGROUND Newly designed computer-based applications and the development of wireless technology have allowed the transmission of 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) waveforms from remote locations to the hand-held computers of cardiologists. If these computer ECGs can be reliably interpreted, then the time to treatment for cardiac patients may be reduced. (More)
BACKGROUND The transmission of 12-lead electrocardiograms from remote locations to hand-held computers of cardiologists is now possible with the development of wireless technology and computer software. This investigation determined whether the cardiologist's decisions regarding reperfusion therapy for patients with symptoms suggestive of an acute(More)
