  • Marcus, Adam; Wu, Eugene; Madden, Samuel R.; Miller, Robert C. (VLDB Endowment, 2011-09)
    Crowdsourcing markets like Amazon's Mechanical Turk (MTurk) make it possible to task people with small jobs, such as labeling images or looking up phone numbers, via a programmatic interface. MTurk tasks for processing ...
  • Nikolaidis, Stefanos; Rossano, Gregory; Martinez, Carlos; Fuhlbrigge, Thomas; Lasota, Przemyslaw Andrzej; Shah, Julie A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-10)
    New industrial robotic systems that operate in the same physical space as people highlight the emerging need for robots that can integrate seamlessly into human group dynamics. In this paper we build on our prior investigation, ...
  • Nikolaidis, Stefanos; Shah, Julie A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-03)
    We design and evaluate human-robot cross-training, a strategy widely used and validated for effective human team training. Cross-training is an interactive planning method in which a human and a robot iteratively switch ...
  • Ritvo, Harriet (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2009-06)
    “When I use a word,” says Humpty Dumpty in Through the Looking Glass, “it means just what I choose it to mean– neither more nor less.” Alice demurs on several grounds, appealing first to contrary popular consensus–“But ...
  • Xu, Weihong; Seok, Junhee; Mindrinos, Michael N.; Schweitzer, Anthony C.; Jiang, Hui; Wilhelmy, Julie; Clark, Tyson A.; Kapur, Karen; Xing, Yi; Faham, Malek; Storey, John D.; Moldawer, Lyle L.; Maier, Ronald V.; Tompkins, Ronald G.; Wong, Wing Hung; Davis, Ronald W.; Xiao, Wenzhong; Inflammation and Host Response to Injury Large-Scale Collaborative Research Program (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-03)
    A 6.9 million-feature oligonucleotide array of the human transcriptome [Glue Grant human transcriptome (GG-H array)] has been developed for high-throughput and cost-effective analyses in clinical studies. This array allows ...
  • Knee, Kelly M.; Sergeeva, Oksana Andrei; King, Jonathan Alan (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2012-08)
    Archaeal and eukaryotic cytosols contain group II chaperonins, which have a double-barrel structure and fold proteins inside a cavity in an ATP-dependent manner. The most complex of the chaperonins, the eukaryotic TCP-1 ...
  • Begley, Ulrike; Sosa, Maria Soledad; Avivar-Valderas, Alvaro; Patil, Ashish; Endres, Lauren; Estrada, Yeriel; Chan, Tsz Yan Clement; Su, Dan; Dedon, Peter C.; Aguirre-Ghiso, Julio A.; Begley, Thomas J. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-04)
    Emerging evidence points to aberrant regulation of translation as a driver of cell transformation in cancer. Given the direct control of translation by tRNA modifications, tRNA modifying enzymes may function as regulators ...
  • Belair, David G.; Molenda, James A.; Vickerman, Vernella; Lewis, Rachel; Daigh, Christine; Hansen, Tyler D.; Mann, David A.; Thomson, James A.; Griffith, Linda G.; Schwartz, Michael P.; Murphy, William L.; Whisler, Jordan Ari; Kamm, Roger Dale; Valdez Macias, Jorge Luis; Velazquez, Jeremy J. (Springer-Verlag, 2014-09)
    Here we describe a strategy to model blood vessel development using a well-defined induced pluripotent stem cell-derived endothelial cell type (iPSC-EC) cultured within engineered platforms that mimic the 3D microenvironment. ...
  • Perrachione, Tyler; Del Tufo, Stephanie N.; Gabrieli, John D. E. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2011-07)
    The ability to recognize people by their voice is an important social behavior. Individuals differ in how they pronounce words, and listeners may take advantage of language-specific knowledge of speech phonology to facilitate ...
  • Maier-Hein, Lena; Walsh, Conor James; Seitel, Alexander; Hanumara, Nevan Clancy; Shepard, Jo-Anne; Franz, A. M.; Pianka, F.; Muller, Sascha A.; Schmied, Bruno; Slocum, Alexander H.; Gupta, Rajiv; Meinzer, Hans-Peter (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-03)
    Computed tomography (CT) guided percutaneous punctures of the liver for cancer diagnosis and therapy (e.g. tumor biopsy, radiofrequency ablation) are well-established procedures in clinical routine. One of the main challenges ...
  • Schlicht, Erik J.; Shimojo, Shinsuke; Camerer, Colin F.; Nakayama, Ken; Battaglia, Peter W. (Public Library of Science, 2010-07)
    Research in competitive games has exclusively focused on how opponent models are developed through previous outcomes and how peoples' decisions relate to normative predictions. Little is known about how rapid impressions ...
  • Endo, Ken; Herr, Hugh M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    In this paper, we present an under-actuated model of human walking, comprising only a soleus muscle and flexion/extension monoarticular hip muscles. The remaining muscle groups of the human leg are modeled using quasi-passive, ...
  • Sassaki, Guilherme L.; Elli, Stefano; Rudd, Timothy R.; Macchi, Eleonora; Yates, Edwin A.; Naggi, Annamaria; Raman, Rahul; Torri, Giangiacomo; Guerrini, Marco; Shriver, Zachary H.; Sasisekharan, Ram (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-09)
    Differential interactions between influenza A virus protein hemagglutinin (HA) and α2→3 (avian) or α2→6 (human) sialylated glycan receptors play an important role in governing host specificity and adaptation of the virus. ...
  • Taylor, Frank E. (Springer-Verlag, 2012-07)
    Results are presented of a search for new particles decaying to large numbers of jets in association with missing transverse momentum, using 4.7 fb[superscript −1] of pp collision data at √s = 7 TeV collected by the ATLAS ...
  • Casey, Andrew R.; Keller, Stefan C.; Da Costa, Gary; Frebel, Anna L.; Maunder, Elizabeth (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2014-03)
    We present the first high-resolution spectroscopic study on the Orphan stream for five stream candidates, observed with the Magellan Inamori Kyocera Echelle spectrograph on the Magellan Clay telescope. The targets were ...
  • Weiss, Kurt R.; Kimura, Yoko; Lee, Wyan-Ching Mimi; Littleton, J. Troy (Genetics Society of America, The, 2011-11)
    Huntington’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder resulting from expansion of a polyglutamine tract in the Huntingtin protein. Mutant Huntingtin forms intracellular aggregates within neurons, although it is unclear ...
  • Crook, Zachary Ryan; Housman, David E. (Elsevier, 2011-02)
    Mouse models for Huntington's Disease (HD) and HD patients demonstrate motor and behavioral dysfunctions, such as progressive loss of coordination and memory, and share similar transcriptional profiles and striatal neuron ...
  • Klima, Kelly; Lin, Ning; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew; Morgan, M. Granger; Grossmann, Iris (American Chemical Society, 2012-01)
    We investigate tropical cyclone wind and storm surge damage reduction for five areas along the Miami-Dade County coastline either by hardening buildings or by the hypothetical application of wind-wave pumps to modify storms. ...
  • Lin, Ning; Vanmarcke, Erik; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (CRC Press, 2014-01)
    This paper reviews recent studies that take a physically-based approach to better assess and manage hurricane risk. Such a methodology includes three components: modeling the storm climatology (which defines TC risk in ...
  • Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Meteorological Society, 2015-06)
