We describe our ongoing development of an insider threat indicator ontology. Our ontology is intended to serve as a standardized expression method for potential indicators of malicious insider activity, as well as a formalization of much of our team’s research on insider threat detection, prevention, and mitigation. This ontology bridges the gap(More)
In this paper we focus on building robust image representations for gender classification from full human bodies. We first investigate a number of state-of-the-art image representations with regard to their suitability for gender profiling from static body images. Features include Histogram of Gradients (HOG), spatial pyramid HOG and spatial pyramid bag of(More)
This paper describes a programmable time measurement architecture that facilitates memory characterization. We have created a novel standalone time measurement architecture that can measure rise time, fall time, pulse width and propagation delay time measurements without the need of additional circuitry [1] or circuit duplication [2]. This is achieved by(More)
BACKGROUND There is an increasing trend toward transcending from traditional teaching to student-centered methodologies that actively engage students. We aimed to analyze students' perceptions of effective interactive teaching using PollEverywhere Audience Response System (ARS) as a worthwhile teaching methodology. It can be of great help in maintaining(More)

A core mission of the Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio) project is the building and deployment of a cloud computing environment customized to support the digitization workflow and integration of data from all U.S. nonfederal biocollections. iDigBio chose to use cloud computing technologies to deliver a cyberinfrastructure that is flexible,(More)
Emergency managers must be able to think critically in order to identify and anticipate situations, solve problems, make judgements and decisions effectively and efficiently, and assume and manage risk. Heretofore, a critical thinking skills assessment of local emergency managers had yet to be conducted that tested for correlations among age, gender,(More)
This paper presents a new on-chip time measurement architecture which is based on the Timeto-Digital Conversion (TDC) method that is capable of achieving a timing resolution of tens of femtoseconds without the use of external automatic test equipment (ATE). This is the highest temporal resolution that has been reported to-date and is achieved by the use of(More)
