To assess water-related risk factors of Buruli ulcer, a case-control study of 102 patients (51 cases and 51 controls) was undertaken by matching age group, sex, and bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination history in Ghana. The factors used here for matching have previously been implicated as factors of Buruli ulcer, an emerging infectious disease. This is(More)
It is generally recognized that an undergraduate introductory Artificial Intelligence course is challenging to teach. This is, in part, due to the diverse and seemingly disconnected core topics that are typically covered. The paper presents work funded by the National Science Foundation to address this problem and to enhance the student learning experience(More)
This paper presents work on a collaborative project funded by the National Science Foundation that incorporates machine learning as a unifying theme to teach fundamental concepts typically covered in the introductory Artificial Intelligence courses. The project involves the development of an adaptable framework for the presentation of core AI topics. This(More)
We present work on project MLExAI, funded by the National Science Foundation with a goal of unifying the artificial intelligence (AI) course around the theme of machine learning. Our work involves the development, implementation, and testing of an adaptable framework for the presentation of core AI topics that emphasizes the relationship between AI and(More)
Our approach to teaching introductory artificial intelligence (AI) unifies its diverse core topics through a theme of machine learning, and emphasizes how AI relates more broadly with computer science. Our work, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, involves the development, implementation, and testing of a suite of projects that can be(More)
As computers slowly permeate our dental practices, it becomes obvious that we have a choice: either accept and embrace this technology in order to survive, if not prosper, or we can reject it and sit on the sidelines and get left behind. Using a new patient examination scenario, five different types of computer-aided technology are explored. The clinical(More)
The goal of Project MLeXAI, Machine Learning Experiences in Artificial Intelligence, is to develop a project-based framework for teaching core AI topics with a unifying theme of machine learning. In this paper, we provide an overview of Project MLeXAI and the curricular material being developed. We present experiences during the second phase of the project(More)
Hogan, Hogan, and Busch (1984) defined service-orientation as "the disposition to be helpful, thoughtful, considerate, and cooperative" (p. 167). To measure this construct they developed the Service Orientation Index (SOI), an 87-item true-false questionnaire. The purpose of the present study was to test whether or not a biodata inventory could also be used(More)
