—Deploying home access points (AP) is hard. Untrained users typically purchase, install, and configure a home AP with very little awareness of wireless signal coverage and complex interference conditions. We envision a future of autonomous wireless network management that uses the Internet as an enabling technology. By leveraging a P2P architecture over(More)
We are developing SWORIER (Semantic Web Ontologies and Rules for Interoperability with Efficient Reasoning), which is a system that uses Logic Programming to reason about ontologies and rules in order to answer queries. The system expects a human developer to create ontologies in the formalisms of OWL-DL (Web Ontology Language for Description Logic) along(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association of atrophy of the abductor digiti minimi muscle (ADMA), an MRI manifestation of chronic compression of the inferior calcaneal nerve suggesting the clinical diagnosis of Baxter's neuropathy, with MRI markers of potential etiologies, including calcaneal spur formation, plantar fasciitis, calcaneal edema, Achilles(More)
This paper explores the possibility of using the Internet as a control channel for residential wireless networks (RWLANs). We design and implement Telegram, an architecture in which nearby APs coordinate their wireless transmissions over the wired Internet. The latency of coordination is resolved by scheduling packets slightly in advance. Testbed(More)
A self-healing database system is a grand-challenge vision where the system will detect, diagnose, and repair software/hardware failures automatically. We identify performance-availability problems (PAPs) as an important target for self-healing, and develop techniques that enable database systems to recover automatically from common PAPs. PAPs can be caused(More)
