Detecting hedges and their scope in natural language text is very important for information inference. In this paper, we present a system based on a cascade method for the CoNLL-2010 shared task. The system composes of two components: one for detecting hedges and another one for detecting their scope. For detecting hedges, we build a cascade subsystem.(More)
—As benchmark programs for microprocessor archi-tectures, network-on-chip (NoC) traffic patterns are essential tools for NoC performance assessments and architecture explorations. The fidelity of NoC traffic patterns has profound influence on NoC studies. For the first time, this paper presents a realistic traffic benchmark suite, called MCSL, and the(More)
Crosstalk noise is an intrinsic characteristic of photonic devices used by optical networks-on-chip (ONoCs) as well as a potential issue. For the first time, this paper analyzed and modeled the crosstalk noise, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and bit error rate (BER) of optical routers and ONoCs. The analytical models for crosstalk noise, minimum SNR, and(More)
World Wide Web, the biggest distributed system ever built, experiences tremendous growth and change in Web sites, users, and technology. A realistic and accurate characterization of Web workload is the first, fundamental step in areas such as performance analysis and prediction, capacity planning, and admission control. Compared to the previous work, in(More)
The single-stranded DNA (ssDNA)-binding protein replication protein A (RPA) is essential for both DNA replication and recombination. Chromatin immunoprecipitation techniques were used to visualize the kinetics and extent of RPA binding following induction of a double-strand break (DSB) and during its repair by homologous recombination in yeast. RPA(More)
Our earlier research work on applying architecture–based software reliability models on a large scale case study allowed us to test how and when they work, to understand their limitations , and to outline the issues that need future research. In this paper we first present an additional case study which confirms our earlier findings. Then, we present(More)
