Most high-level programming languages do not have the ability to control the bindings between internal names and external implementations of those names at run time. This facility is necessary for the use of the language in a monolingual pro-grAmm~ng environment. The paper describes the semantics of a "dynamic binding" feature for a block-structured,… (More)
This paper introduces the process model as a way of incorporating the software life cycle into beginning computer science courses. This approach, patterned after a successful method for teaching English composition, provides students with an understanding of how all phases of programming can be accomplished. A five-step model of the process and some useful… (More)
The use of intelligent systems in health care, while not new, is rapidly increasing with the development of new functions and features. Examples can be found in nearly all the major research areas of intelligent systems, including deduction, perception, prediction, robotics, and natural language, as well as combinations of these. Some barriers still exist… (More)
—Rural primary health care providers are often isolated from specialists, such as behavioral health care providers. Telehealth technologies have the potential to overcome such isolation and support collaboration among providers that are not located in the same community.
