It is time to broaden our performance-dominated research agenda. A four order of magnitude increase in performance since the first ASPLOS in 1982 means that few outside the CS&E research community believe that speed is the only problem of computer hardware and software. Current systems crash and freeze so frequently that people become violent. Fast but(More)
This paper examines the tone and content of the forward-looking statements (“FLS”) in corporate 10-K and 10-Q filings using a Näıve Bayesian machine learning algorithm. I first manually categorize 30,000 sentences of randomly selected FLS extracted from the MD&As along two dimensions: (1) tone (i.e., positive versus negative tone); and (2) content (i.e.,(More)
BACKGROUND It is difficult to assign antibody specificity for highly sensitized patients using a cell panel with multiple antigens per reaction. We describe here a single antigen bead panel for accurate identification of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibody specificities by flow cytometry. METHODS A total of 110 single recombinant HLAs, including 34 A(More)
This paper describes the system architecture and circuit design constraints for a proposed Ultra-Wideband radio transceiver. Targeting a sensor network application, the radio supports peer-to-peer communication at greater than 100kbps over 5 meters with a 1mW total (TX+RX) power budget. A narrow pulse (approximately 1ns wide) is transmitted using simple(More)
The system operator of a large power transmission network must ensure that power is delivered whenever there is demand in order to maintain highly reliable electric service. To fulfill this mandate, the system operator must procure reserve capacity to respond to unforeseen events such as an unexpected surge in demand. This paper constructs a centralized(More)

Control-synthesis techniques are developed for demand-driven production systems. The resulting policies are timeoptimal for a deterministic model, and approximately time-optimal for a stochastic model. Moreover, they are easily adapted to take into account a range of issues that arise in a realistic, dynamic environment. In particular, control synthesis(More)
