Although Arabic is currently one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, there has been relatively little speech recognition research on Arabic compared to other languages. Moreover, most previous work has concentrated on the recognition of formal rather than dialectal Arabic. This paper reports on our project at the 2002 Johns Hopkins Summer(More)
The number of research publications in various disciplines is growing exponentially. Researchers and scientists are increasingly finding themselves in the position of having to quickly understand large amounts of technical material. In this paper we present the first steps in producing an automatically generated , readily consumable, technical survey.(More)
Histological reports of 1869 consecutive women with invasive breast cancer have been reviewed to determine whether histological features of the tumour's were related to the patients' age. The patients, treated between 1983 and 1992, were divided into four groups, based on age. There were 148 aged < or = 39 years, 355 aged 40-49 years, 984 aged 50-69 years(More)
The University of Maryland participated in three tasks organized by the Text Analysis Conference 2008 (TAC 2008): (1) the update task of text summarization; (2) the opinion task of text summarization; and (3) recognizing textual entailment (RTE). At the heart of our summarization system is Trimmer, which generates multiple alternative compressed versions of(More)
Permuting the rows and columns of a sparse matrix can dramatically reduce the memory requirements of a subsequently computed LU factorization. A perfect elimination matrix is one whose rows and columns can be permuted so that its LU factors require no additional space on top of that required by the original matrix. An implemention of an O(n 3) algorithm ,(More)
