While intelligent environments are often cited as a reason for doing work on visual person-tracking, really making an intelligent environment exposes many real-world problems in visual tracking that must be solved to make the technology practical. In the context of our EasyLiving project in intelligent environments, we created a practical person-tracking(More)
ADAGE is a project to define and build a domain-specific software architecture (DSSA) environment for assisting the development of avionics software. A central concept of DSSA is the use of software system generators to implement component-based models of software synthesis in the target domain [SEI90]. In this paper, we present the ADAGE component-based(More)
Computational tools can markedly accelerate the rate at which murine genetic models can be analyzed. We developed a computational method for mapping phenotypic traits that vary among inbred strains onto haplotypic blocks. This method correctly predicted the genetic basis for strain-specific differences in several biologically important traits. It was also(More)
EasyLiving is a new project in intelligent environments at Microsoft Research. We are working to make computing more accessible and more pervasive than today's desktop computer. More specifically, our goal is to develop a prototype architecture and technologies for building intelligent environments that facilitate the unencumbered interaction of people with(More)
PURPOSES Alkali-burned corneas can seldom heal properly to restore corneal transparency. To provide a better understanding of this devastating corneal injury, we compared the expression of collagen I, smooth muscle alpha-actin (alpha-SMA), and vimentin in lacerated and alkali-burned rabbit corneas. METHODS A radiolabeled cDNA probe of alpha 1(I) chain was(More)
This document 1 describes the Design Records being developed as part of the Domain-Speciic Software Architecture Avionics Domain Application Generation Environment (DSSA-ADAGE) Project 2. The purpose of a design record is to serve as a vehicle for software understanding by functioning as a collection point for domain-speciic knowledge about the components(More)
This panel will address Ubiquitous Computing and related research in an unusual, but appropriate way: many short presentations of small objects and interaction techniques. Six wildly creative leaders pursuing innovative interaction techniques will present very brief talks centering on one or more objects. Demonstrations may be given, with an emphasis on(More)
