BACKGROUND The Epilepsy Phenome/Genome Project (EPGP) is a large-scale, multi-institutional, collaborative network of 27 epilepsy centers throughout the U.S., Australia, and Argentina, with the objective of collecting detailed phenotypic and genetic data on a large number of epilepsy participants. The goals of EPGP are (1) to perform detailed phenotyping on(More)
We propose a new family of latent variable models called max-margin min-entropy (m3e) models, which define a distribution over the output and the hidden variables conditioned on the input. Given an input, an m3e model predicts the output with the smallest corresponding Rényi entropy of generalized distribution. This is equivalent to minimizing a score that(More)
This paper presents three simple techniques for improving network service using relatively unknown features of many existing networks. The resulting system provides greater reliability, enhanced security, and ease of management. First, it addresses the application of IP anycast to provide reliable recursive DNS service. Next, it explains the use of unicast(More)
BACKGROUND In agricultural regions, streamside forests have been reduced in age and extent, or removed entirely to maximize arable cropland. Restoring and reforesting such riparian zones to mature forest, particularly along headwater streams (which constitute 90% of stream network length) would both increase carbon storage and improve water quality. Age and(More)
The occurrence of tsunami damage is not limited to events causing coastal inundation. Even without flooding, maritime assets are vulnerable to significant damage from strong currents and associated drag forces. While such impacts have been observed in the past, they have not been well studied in any context. Nearshore tsunami currents are governed by(More)
