Unstructured intangible experiences and knowledge are usually difficult to represent and instantiate, which engenders the hardship of knowledge transfer and sharing. Past marketing plans are such valuable documents containing strategic planning knowledge and experiences. Case-Based Reasoning (CBR), which consists of retrieving, reusing, revising, and(More)
The use of induction chemotherapy (CT) is controversial. We compared the survival of head and neck cancer patients receiving docetaxel- or platinum-based induction CT before concomitant chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with the survival of those receiving upfront CCRT alone. Data from the National Health Insurance and cancer registry databases in Taiwan were linked(More)
BACKGROUND This paper proposes that interoperability across biomedical databases can be improved by utilizing a repository of Common Data Elements (CDEs), UML model class-attributes and simple lexical algorithms to facilitate the building domain models. This is examined in the context of an existing system, the National Cancer Institute (NCI)'s cancer(More)
With IRB approval, we obtained de-identified laboratory test data from 3 large institutions (ARUP, Intermountain, and Regenstrief). In this study we evaluated correctness of mapping local laboratory result codes to Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes (LOINC®). We received 9,027 laboratory tests mapped to 3,669 unique LOINC codes. A one tenth(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of PbtO2-guided therapy with traditional intracranial pressure- (ICP-) guided treatment on the management of cerebral variables, therapeutic interventions, survival rates, and neurological outcomes of moderate and severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients. From 2009 to 2010, TBI patients with a Glasgow(More)
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a robot vision system for surface defect detection of 3D objects. It aims at the ill-defined qualitative items such as stains and scratches. Design/methodology/approach – A robot vision system for surface defect detection may counter: high surface reflection at some viewing angles; and no reference markers(More)
With the development of biomolecular technology, there is getting more and more information derived from genome research. Besides, the microarry was introduced to allow people study genome wide pattern of gene expression profile, the scientists have the opportunity to study the function of genes. At the same time, the functional genomic research also brings(More)
