In 1995, The European Influenza Surveillance Scheme was created with the participation of eight networks from seven countries. The main objectives were to continue the previous CARE Telematics Network and to adapt the project to the Internet environment as well as to improve substantially the quality of the surveillance according to new epidemiological(More)
Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), genetically modified with the Al(3+) resistance gene of wheat (TaALMT1), was compared with a non-transformed sibling line when grown on an acidic and highly phosphate-fixing ferrosol supplied with a range of phosphorus concentrations. In short-term pot trials (26 days), transgenic barley expressing TaALMT1 (GP-ALMT1) was more(More)

This review looks at a variety of different ways in which computers can be used to assist in the interpretation of radiological images and in radiological decision-making. The issues involved in the design of computerized decision aids are introduced and four criteria proposed for evaluating such aids: need, practicality, veracity and relevance. These(More)
We are investigating computerized techniques for sorting mammograms according to whether the breast tissue is fatty or dense. The hypothesis is that areas of dense tissue are a major factor in making certain mammograms harder for both radiologists and computers to interpret. Being able to identify dense mammograms automatically could permit better use of(More)
Room temperature, copper-catalyzed amination of amido-bromo-1,8-naphthyridines is reported. Use of Cu(2)O and aqueous ammonia at ambient temperature affords amination products in 10-87% yield. Bromonaphthyridines are prepared in 15-65% yield via treatment of amidonaphthyridinones with phosphorus tribromide. This methodology provides an alternative route to(More)
In this paper we investigate data mining approaches to road type classification based on CAN (controller area network) bus data collected from vehicles on UK roads. We consider three related classification problems: road type (A, B, C and Motorway), signage (None, White, Green and Blue) and carriageway type (Single or Double). Knowledge of these(More)
AIM Two studies were carried out to establish, validate and assess descriptors for use in the differential diagnosis for mammographic calcifications. METHODS In Study 1, eleven radiologists were asked to 'think out loud' as they interpreted 20 sets of calcifications. Participants used 159 terms to describe calcifications. We used this data to design a(More)
Effective marine ecosystem-based management (EBM) requires understanding the key processes and relationships controlling the aspects of biodiversity, productivity, and resilience to perturbations. Unfortunately, the scales, complexity, and non-linear dynamics that characterize marine ecosystems often confound managing for these properties. Nevertheless,(More)
Feature sets in many domains often contain many irrelevant and redundant features, both of which have a negative e↵ect on the performance and complexity of agents that use the data [7]. Supervised feature selection aims to overcome this problem by selecting features that are highly related to the class labels, yet unrelated to each other. One proposed(More)
OBJECTIVES To study how professional radiologists describe, interpret and make decisions about micro-calcifications in mammograms. The purpose was to develop a model of the radiologists' decision making for use in CADMIUM II, a computerized aid for mammogram interpretation that combines symbolic reasoning with image processing. METHODS In Study 1, eleven(More)
