The role of optical defocus in regulating refractive development in infant monkeys. (1/1682)

Early in life, the two eyes of infant primates normally grow in a coordinated manner toward the ideal refractive state. We investigated the extent to which lens-induced changes in the effective focus of the eye affected refractive development in infant rhesus monkeys. The main finding was that spectacle lenses could predictably alter the growth of one or both eyes resulting in appropriate compensating refractive changes in both the hyperopic and myopic directions. Although the effective operating range of the emmetropization process in young monkeys is somewhat limited, the results demonstrate that emmetropization in this higher primate, as in a number of other species, is an active process that is regulated by optical defocus associated with the eye's effective refractive state.  (+info)

The growing eye: an autofocus system that works on very poor images. (2/1682)

It is unknown which retinal image features are analyzed to control axial eye growth and refractive development. On the other hand, identification of these features is fundamental for the understanding of visually acquired refractive errors. Cyclopleged chicks were individually kept in the center of a drum with only one viewing distance possible. Defocusing spectacle lenses were used to stimulate the retina with defined defocus of similar magnitude but different sign. If spatial frequency content and contrast were the only cues analyzed by the retina, all chicks should have become myopic. However, compensatory eye growth was still always in the right direction. The most likely cues for emmetropization, spatial frequency content and image contrast, do therefore not correlate with the elongation of the eye. Rather, the sign of defocus was extracted even from very poor images.  (+info)

The refractive development of untreated eyes of rhesus monkeys varies according to the treatment received by their fellow eyes. (3/1682)

To determine the extent to which the visual experience of one eye may influence the refractive development of its fellow eye, we analyzed the data of untreated (UT) eyes of monkeys that received different types of unilateral pattern deprivation. Subjects were 15 juvenile rhesus monkeys, with five monkeys in each of three treatment groups: aphakic eyes with optical correction (AC), aphakic eyes with no correction (ANC), and eyes that were occluded with an opaque contact lens (OC). Under general anaesthesia, refractive error (D) was determined by cycloplegic retinoscopy and axial length (mm) was determined with A-scan ultrasonography. For measurements of refractive error of the UT eyes, there was a significant main effect of groups according to the treatment of the fellow eyes, F(2, 12) = 6.6. While UT eyes paired with AC fellow eyes (mean = +4.2 D) were significantly more hyperopic than the eyes of age-matched normal monkeys (mean = +2.4 D), t(25), = 2.5, UT eyes paired with OC fellow eyes (mean = -0.5 D) were significantly more myopic than the eyes of normal monkeys, t(25) = -9. UT eyes paired with ANC fellow eyes (mean = +1.9 D) were not significantly different from normal eyes. For measurements of axial length there was also a significant main effect of groups, F(2, 12) = 6.9. While UT eyes paired with AC fellow eyes (mean = 16.9 mm) were significantly shorter than the eyes of age-matched normal monkeys (mean = 17.5 mm), t(25) = 2.3, UT eyes paired with OC fellow eyes (mean = 18.1 mm) were significantly longer than the eyes of normal monkeys, t(25) = 2.3. UT eyes paired with ANC fellow eyes (mean = 17.5 mm) were not significantly different from the eyes of normal monkeys. The measurements of axial length and of refractive error of the UT eyes were also significantly correlated with one another, probably indicating that the differences in refractive error were due to differences in axial length, r = -0.8. The present data reveal that despite normal visual experience, UT eyes can have their refractive development altered, systematically, simply as a function of the type of pattern deprivation received by their fellow eyes. These data add to the growing evidence that there is an interocular mechanism that is active during emmetropization. As a consequence, future models of eye growth will need to consider both: (1) the direct influence of visual input on the growing eye; as well as (2) the indirect influence coming from the fellow eye.  (+info)

Biometrical threshold of biparietal diameter for certain fetal sex assignment by ultrasound. (4/1682)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to establish the biometric threshold of biparietal diameter (BPD), assumed to be an independent variable of gestational age, at which 100% accuracy in the assessment of fetal sex by ultrasonography is achievable. METHODS: Transvaginal and/or transabdominal sonography was used for detecting the 'sagittal sign' as a marker of fetal sex in 385 fetuses with BPD between 18 and 29 mm. The results of ultrasound examination were compared with sex at birth or with karyotype obtained from amniotic fluid cells or chorionic villus sampling. RESULTS: Fetal sex assignment was feasible in 337 of 385 cases (87.5%). Of the 312 fetuses with known fetal sex outcome, 164 were males and 148 were females. An accuracy rate of 100% was achieved when a BPD of > or = 23 mm was obtained. CONCLUSION: This study provides important information about the earliest stage of fetal development, expressed in terms of BPD, at which a diagnosis of fetal sex can be made with 100% accuracy.  (+info)

Morphological changes in the retina of Aequidens pulcher (Cichlidae) after rearing in monochromatic light. (5/1682)

We investigate the processing of chromatic information in the outer retina of a cichlid fish, Aequidens pulcher. The colour opponent response characteristics of some classes of cone-specific horizontal cells in the fish retina are the result of feedforward-feedback loops with cone photoreceptors. To interfere with the reciprocal transmissions of signals, animals were reared in monochromatic lights which preferentially stimulated the spectrally different cone types. Here we report the effects on the cones. Their absorbance spectra were largely unaffected, indicating no change in photopigment gene expression. Significant changes were observed in the cone outer segment lengths and the frequencies of spectral cone types. Quantum catch efficiency and survival of cones appear to be controlled in a spectrally selective way. Our results suggest that the retina responds to spectral deprivation in a compensatory fashion aimed at balancing the input from the different cone types to second order neurons.  (+info)

Long-term changes in retinal contrast sensitivity in chicks from frosted occluders and drugs: relations to myopia? (6/1682)

Experiments in animal models have shown that the retinal analyzes the image to identify the position of the plane of focus and fine-tunes the growth of the underlying sclera. It is fundamental to the understanding of the development of refractive errors to know which image features are processed. Since the position of the image plane fluctuates continuously with accommodative status and viewing distance, a meaningful control of refractive development can only occur by an averaging procedure with a long time constant. As a candidate for a retinal signal for enhanced eye growth and myopia we propose the level of contrast adaptation which varies with the average amount of defocus. Using a behavioural paradigm, we have found in chickens (1) that contrast adaptation (CA, here referred to as an increase in contrast sensitivity) occurs at low spatial frequencies (0.2 cyc/deg) already after 1.5 h of wearing frosted goggles which cause deprivation myopia, (2) that CA also occurs with negative lenses (-7.4D) and positive lenses (+6.9D) after 1.5 h, at least if accommodation is paralyzed and, (3) that CA occurs at a retinal level or has, at least, a retinal component. Furthermore, we have studied the effects of atropine and reserpine, which both suppress myopia development, on CA. Quisqualate, which causes retinal degeneration but leaves emmetropization functional, was also tested. We found that both atropine and reserpine increase contrast sensitivity to a level where no further CA could be induced by frosted goggles. Quisqualate increased only the variability of refractive development and of contrast sensitivity. Taken together, CA occurring during extended periods of defocus is a possible candidate for a retinal error signal for myopia development. However, the situation is complicated by the fact that there must be a second image processing mode generating a powerful inhibitory growth signal if the image is in front of the retina, even with poor images (Diether, S., & Schaeffel, F. (1999).  (+info)

Statistical limitations in functional neuroimaging. I. Non-inferential methods and statistical models. (7/1682)

Functional neuroimaging (FNI) provides experimental access to the intact living brain making it possible to study higher cognitive functions in humans. In this review and in a companion paper in this issue, we discuss some common methods used to analyse FNI data. The emphasis in both papers is on assumptions and limitations of the methods reviewed. There are several methods available to analyse FNI data indicating that none is optimal for all purposes. In order to make optimal use of the methods available it is important to know the limits of applicability. For the interpretation of FNI results it is also important to take into account the assumptions, approximations and inherent limitations of the methods used. This paper gives a brief overview over some non-inferential descriptive methods and common statistical models used in FNI. Issues relating to the complex problem of model selection are discussed. In general, proper model selection is a necessary prerequisite for the validity of the subsequent statistical inference. The non-inferential section describes methods that, combined with inspection of parameter estimates and other simple measures, can aid in the process of model selection and verification of assumptions. The section on statistical models covers approaches to global normalization and some aspects of univariate, multivariate, and Bayesian models. Finally, approaches to functional connectivity and effective connectivity are discussed. In the companion paper we review issues related to signal detection and statistical inference.  (+info)

Statistical limitations in functional neuroimaging. II. Signal detection and statistical inference. (8/1682)

The field of functional neuroimaging (FNI) methodology has developed into a mature but evolving area of knowledge and its applications have been extensive. A general problem in the analysis of FNI data is finding a signal embedded in noise. This is sometimes called signal detection. Signal detection theory focuses in general on issues relating to the optimization of conditions for separating the signal from noise. When methods from probability theory and mathematical statistics are directly applied in this procedure it is also called statistical inference. In this paper we briefly discuss some aspects of signal detection theory relevant to FNI and, in addition, some common approaches to statistical inference used in FNI. Low-pass filtering in relation to functional-anatomical variability and some effects of filtering on signal detection of interest to FNI are discussed. Also, some general aspects of hypothesis testing and statistical inference are discussed. This includes the need for characterizing the signal in data when the null hypothesis is rejected, the problem of multiple comparisons that is central to FNI data analysis, omnibus tests and some issues related to statistical power in the context of FNI. In turn, random field, scale space, non-parametric and Monte Carlo approaches are reviewed, representing the most common approaches to statistical inference used in FNI. Complementary to these issues an overview and discussion of non-inferential descriptive methods, common statistical models and the problem of model selection is given in a companion paper. In general, model selection is an important prelude to subsequent statistical inference. The emphasis in both papers is on the assumptions and inherent limitations of the methods presented. Most of the methods described here generally serve their purposes well when the inherent assumptions and limitations are taken into account. Significant differences in results between different methods are most apparent in extreme parameter ranges, for example at low effective degrees of freedom or at small spatial autocorrelation. In such situations or in situations when assumptions and approximations are seriously violated it is of central importance to choose the most suitable method in order to obtain valid results.  (+info)

Keywords: Ocular biometry, Visual function, Gullstrand, Cross section, Dioptric distance Background The optics of the human eye is based on the refractive parameters of the individual ocular structures, each of which is affected differently by age. Well known examples of this are the thickening of the crystalline lens with aging and the gradual flattening of the anterior chamber [1]. Although normal aging has been studied extensively in the literature, some SNX14 studies limit themselves to subsections of the population, such as subjects over 40?years, children, certain nationalities or ethnicities, or DBeq IC50 emmetropes [2C4]. Other studies presented only certain parameters of ocular biometry, or concentrated on prevalence of specific eye conditions (e.g., cataract, AMD) [5, 6]. This study concentrates on various biometric parameters in connection with refraction and retinal measurements with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a healthy population. Although measurements in healthy eyes ...

Biometrics is getting a lot of attention in the medical field.. Weve seen a huge increase in the number of companies that offer biometric access, but there are some issues.. The first issue is the lack of access.. Most doctors and hospitals have no way of accessing medical records from other doctors, and they cant use it.. This makes it very difficult to conduct basic medical research and create personalized healthcare for people with medical conditions.. The second issue is that the data has to be stored and retrieved from somewhere, whether its the hospital, a hospitals computer system or a secure server.. So its difficult to access and use when youre not in a hospital.. The third issue is security.. You cant store biometric data in a secure database that can be easily accessed by anyone.. The fourth issue is cost.. Most companies are unable to offer biometrically-linked insurance, so most people wont be able to access their medical records..

This study provides vermian biometric data from a large cohort of fetuses from 21 to 35 weeks of gestation assessed by 3 imaging modalities. So far, although various nomograms have been developed by using 2D and 3D sonography and MR imaging,17⇓-19 none has provided data regarding all 4 vermian parameters (maximum superoinferior diameter, maximum anteroposterior diameter, perimeter, and surface area) or compared measurements obtained by the 3 modalities. Moreover, it was not clear whether measurements obtained by different modalities can be compared for clinical purposes.. Biometric analysis of the vermis has a major role in the evaluation of an abnormal posterior fossa for precise prenatal diagnosis. With this study, we provide new reference data for 3 imaging modalities ...
It is amazing how quickly you get used to a car that starts as long as you have the key somewhere on your person. When you switch vehicles, it becomes a nuisance to fish the key out and insert it into the ignition. Biometrics aims to make it even easier. Why carry around a key (or an access card), if a computer can uniquely identify you?. [Alexis Ospitia] wanted to experiment with vein matching biometrics and had good results with a Raspberry Pi, a web cam, and a custom IR illumination system. Apparently, hemoglobin is a good IR reflector and the pattern of veins in your hand is as unique as other biometrics (like fingerprints, ear prints, and retina vein patterns). [Alexis] post is in Spanish, but Google Translate does a fine job as soon as you realize that it thinks fingerprint is footprint. The software uses OpenCV, but weve seen the same thing done in MATLAB (see the video below).. Fingerprint scanners looked promising, but there are concerns about them. They are easy to spoof and if ...

The child benefit data cock-up highlights all sorts of public data issues, most of which are missed totally by both participants and observers. Data literacy in Britain is non-existent. Here are a few points that have come to mind over the last couple of days of coverage (please add your own in the comments if you feel like it).. 1. Ministers and spokesmen know hardly anything about data. For instance, some of them have obviously been briefed to say that the information in the planned central ID database will be safer because its got biometrics. No one has explained to them that biometric data captured from you and me has nothing to do with access to that data by civil servants: theyll just use the password on the Post-It note like they always did.. 2. No one has bothered to explain to managers and legislators that an individuals identity could be easily and securely verified without a big, central database. A zero-data ID scheme is technically feasible and (literally) infinitely more ...
Biometrics are best defined as measurable physiological and / or behavioral characteristics that can be utilized to verify the identity of an individual. They are of interest in any area where it is important to verify the true identity of an individual. Initially, these techniques were employed primarily in specialist high security applications, however we are now seeing their use and proposed use in a much broader range of public facing situations. Biometrics measure individuals unique physical or behavioral characteristics to recognize or authenticate their identity. Common physical biometrics include fingerprints; hand or palm geometry; and retina, iris, or facial characteristics. Behavioral characters include signature, voice (which also has a physical component), keystroke pattern, and gait. Of this class of biometrics, technologies for signature and voice are the most developed. Now a days the biometrics technology is preferred by many organization for the security purpose and in coming ...

Apolipoprotein B100 (ApoB100) determination is superior to low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) to establish cardiovascular (CV) risk, and does not require prior fasting. ApoB100 is rarely measured alongside standard lipids, which precludes comprehensive assessment of dyslipidemia. To evaluate two simple algorithms for apoB100 as regards their performance, equivalence and discrimination with reference apoB100 laboratory measurement. Two apoB100-predicting equations were compared in 87 type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients using the Discriminant ratio (DR). Equation 1: apoB100 = 0.65*non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol + 6.3; and Equation 2: apoB100 = −33.12 + 0.675*LDL-C + 11.95*ln[triglycerides]. The underlying between-subject standard deviation (SDU) was defined as SDU = √ (SD2B - SD2W/2); the within-subject variance (Vw) was calculated for m (2) repeat tests as (Vw) = Σ(xj -xi)2/(m-1)), the within-subject SD (SDw) being its square root; the DR being the ratio SDU/SDW.

PURPOSE To compare biometric changes measured with contact and noncontact methods after mitomycin-C-augmented trabeculectomy. METHODS In this prospective study, 31 eyes from 31 glaucoma patients scheduled for primary trabeculectomy were enrolled. Biometric parameters including axial length (AL), anterior chamber depth (ACD), and lens thickness (LT) were measured using contact ultrasound biometry (UD-6000 Ultrasonic A/B scanner biometer; Tomey Corporation, Nagoya, Japan) and a noncontact optical biometry device (Lenstar; Haag-Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland). Measurements were taken the day before trabeculectomy and then compared with measurements obtained 3 and 6 months after surgery. RESULTS The AL and ACD were significantly decreased at 3 and 6 months compared with baseline values taken with each biometry method. There was a significant increase in LT measured by the Lenstar device at the 3- and 6-month follow-up. At both the 3- and 6-month follow-up, the mean AL measurement reduction with the

Purpose : Optical biometry, based on partial coherence interferometry, is the gold standard for for obtaining precise ocular measurements. The Carl Zeiss Meditec IOLMaster 700 utilizes a newer swept-source OCT technology to obtain all axial measurements, including axial length, anterior chamber depth, corneal thickness, and lens thickness. We evaluated the repeatability and reproducibility of the IOLMaster 700 and its agreement with the IOLMaster 500 and Lenstar LS900. Methods : Complete biometric measurements were taken on one eye chosen at random of 100 subjects, 51 of whom manifested cataracts (47 to 85 years, BCVA 20/16 to 20/80) and 49 of whom had clear lenses (22 to 58 years). Among the full cohort, there were 42 eyes with corneal astigmatism ≥ 0.75 D. Three sets of biometric measurements were taken by three operators with three different IOLMaster 700 units, and one operator took three measurements with the IOLMaster 500 and the Lenstar LS 900.

Abstract: The generalization ability of Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for biometrics drops greatly due to the adverse effects of various occlusions. To this end, we propose a novel unified framework integrated the merits of both CNNs and graphical models to learn dynamic graph representations for occlusion problems in biometrics, called Dynamic Graph Representation (DGR). Convolutional features onto certain regions are re-crafted by a graph generator to establish the connections among the spatial parts of biometrics and build Feature Graphs based on these node representations. Each node of Feature Graphs corresponds to a specific part of the input image and the edges express the spatial relationships between parts. By analyzing the similarities between the nodes, the framework is able to adaptively remove the nodes representing the occluded parts. During dynamic graph matching, we propose a novel strategy to measure the distances of both nodes and adjacent matrixes. In this way, the ...

Finger veins are a promising biometric pattern for personalized identification in terms of their advantages over existing biometrics. Based on the spatial pyramid representation and the combination of more effective information such as gray, texture and shape, this paper proposes a simple but powerful feature, called Pyramid Histograms of Gray, Texture and Orientation Gradients (PHGTOG). For a finger vein image, PHGTOG can reflect the global spatial layout and local details of gray, texture and shape. To further improve the recognition performance and reduce the computational complexity, we select a personalized subset of features from PHGTOG for each subject by using the sparse weight vector, which is trained by using LASSO and called PFS-PHGTOG. We conduct extensive experiments to demonstrate the promise of the PHGTOG and PFS-PHGTOG, experimental results on our databases show that PHGTOG outperforms the other existing features. Moreover, PFS-PHGTOG can further boost the performance in comparison
This paper presents the evaluation results of the methods submitted to Challenge US: Biometric Measurements from Fetal Ultrasound Images, a segmentation challenge held at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging 2012. The challenge was set to compare and evaluate current fetal ultrasound image segmentation methods. It consisted of automatically segmenting fetal anatomical structures to measure standard obstetric biometric parameters, from 2D fetal ultrasound images taken on fetuses at different gestational ages (21 weeks, 28 weeks, and 33 weeks) and with varying image quality to reflect data encountered in real clinical environments. Four independent sub-challenges were proposed, according to the objects of interest measured in clinical practice: abdomen, head, femur, and whole fetus. Five teams participated in the head sub-challenge and two teams in the femur sub-challenge, including one team who tackled both. Nobody attempted the abdomen and whole fetus sub-challenges. The challenge
Region of Interest (ROI) extraction is a crucial step in an automatic finger vein recognition system. The aim of ROI extraction is to decide which part of the image is suitable for finger vein feature extraction. This paper proposes a finger vein ROI extraction method which is robust to finger displacement and rotation. First, we determine the middle line of the finger, which will be used to correct the image skew. Then, a sliding window is used to detect the phalangeal joints and further to ascertain the height of ROI. Last, for the corrective image with certain height, we will obtain the ROI by using the internal tangents of finger edges as the left and right boundary. The experimental results show that the proposed method can extract ROI more accurately and effectively compared with other methods, and thus improve the performance of finger vein identification system. Besides, to acquire the high quality finger vein image during the capture process, we propose eight criteria for finger vein capture
Using a 10-MHz ultrasound transducer, by the immersion method, the typical accuracy for axial length measurements is within 0.12 mm. This results in approximately 0.28 D of post-operative refractive error in an eye of average axial length. This error would be more for a shorter eye and less for a longer eye. However, the total refractive error involves all components of the measurement process and is closer to 0.36 D, taking into account keratometry, a 2-variable IOL power calculation formula and the configuration of the capsulorrhexis. A-scan biometry by immersion will display an axial length somewhat longer than applanation, because there is no corneal compression and the displayed axial length is closer to the true axial length. The difference between applanation and immersion can be anywhere between 0.14 mm to 0.28 mm depending on the degree of corneal compression. Upon implementing immersion A-scan ultrasonography, it is best to aim for a -0.75 D target refraction and start with the IOL ...

Typically, all factors that limit an organism are not measured and included in statistical models used to investigate relationships with their environment. If important unmeasured variables interact multiplicatively with the measured variables, the statistical models often will have heterogeneous response distributions with unequal variances. Quantile regression is an approach for estimating the conditional quantiles of a response variable distribution in the linear model, providing a more complete view of possible causal relationships between variables in ecological processes. Chapter 1 introduces quantile regression and discusses the ordering characteristics, interval nature, sampling variation, weighting, and interpretation of estimates for homogeneous and heterogeneous regression models. Chapter 2 evaluates performance of quantile rankscore tests used for hypothesis testing and constructing confidence intervals for linear quantile regression estimates (0 ≤ τ ≤ 1).

Downloadable! The objective of this study is to estimate the impact of natural amenity on farmland values in the contiguous United States using a quantile regression approach and data from the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Agricultural Resource Management Surveys. The contribution of this study is three-fold. First, we explicitly include variables representing natural amenity and soil characteristics of farmland. Second, we employ a quantile regression approach to examine potentially heterogeneous impacts of natural amenity and soil characteristics at different quantiles of farmland values. Third, we utilized data from a nationwide survey of farm household to examine findings in studies using regional data are consistent at a national scale. Our quantile regression analysis offers some insightful results. Natural amenity is positively correlated with farmland values and its impact is often more pronounced at a higher price range of farmland.
Orthophragmines from late Lutetian (Alaman), Bartonian (Keçili) and early Priabonian (Sarköy) localities in Turkey are described and illustrated for the first time.

The aim of this paper is to present a statistical methodology to assess patterns of cultivars' adaptive response to agricultural environments (agroecosystems) on the basis of complete Genotype x Crop Management x Location x Year (GxMxLxY) data obtained from 3-year multi-location twofactor trials conducted within the framework of the Polish post-registration trials (PDOiR), with an illustration of the application and usefulness of this methodology in analyzing winter wheat grain yield. Producing specific varieties for each subregion of a target region, from widely adapted varieties, may exploit positive genotype x location (GL) interactions to increase crop yields. Experiments designed to examine combinations of environment (E), management practices (M) and cultivars (G) also provide evidence of the relative importance of each of these factors for yield improvement. The evidence shows that variation due to E far outweighs the variation of grain yield that can be attributed to M or G, or the ...

Background:Preterm birth is a major global health challenge, the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age, and a key measure of a populations general health and nutritional status. Current clinical methods of estimating fetal gestational age are often inaccurate. For example, between 20 and 30 weeks of gestation, the width of the 95% prediction interval around the actual gestational age is estimated to be 18-36 days, even when the best ultrasound estimates are used. The aims of this study are to improve estimates of fetal gestational age and provide personalised predictions of future growth. Methods:Using ultrasound-derived, fetal biometric data, we developed a machine learning approach to accurately estimate gestational age. The accuracy of the method is determined by reference to exactly known facts pertaining to each fetus-specifically, intervals between ultrasound visits-rather than the date of the mothers last menstrual period. The data stem from a sample of healthy, well-nourished

The biometrical characteristic of the species was made on the basis of 75 specimens measured. In addition to the diameter of the shell, six other shell characters were described biometrically for the first time. The analysis of the variation coefficients shows that the studied population of L. callistoma is comparatively homogeneous and almost all measured characters are weakly to moderate variable (CV less than 10%). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies on the shell ultra-morphology show that it has a smooth apertural surface with a thick layer of porous and fibrous organic cement and a rough dorsal surface composed of bigger and angular pieces of quartz. The shell wall has a thickness of about 5-6 µm and is composed of three layers. Unlike the previously accepted opinion that species is
Threshold regression is a relatively new alternative approach to the Cox proportional hazards model when the proportional hazards assumption is violated. It is based on first-hitting-time models, where the time-to-event data can be modeled as the time at which the stochastic process of interest first hits a boundary or threshold state. In this dissertation, we develop a semiparametric threshold regression model with flexible covariate effects. Specifically, we propose a B-spline approximation method to estimate nonlinear covariate effects on both the initial state and the rate of the process. We show that the spline based estimators are consistent and achieve the possible optimal rate of convergence under the smooth assumption. Simulation studies are conducted for practical situations, and the methodology is applied to a study of osteoporotic fractures that motivated this investigation. To check the validity of threshold regression model with parametric link functions, we propose two ...

Accenture Federal Services (AFS) has announced two pilot demonstrations with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to determine how patient-generated health data can be used by care teams and researchers.. Patient-generated health data (PGHD) includes a persons health and treatment history, biometric data, symptoms and lifestyle choices. It can be captured in a variety of ways, such as from health devices, wearables and questionnaires. ONC identified the capture, use, and sharing of PGHD as an important issue for advancing patient engagement in health care delivery and research.. The first pilot, conducted by Validic and Sutter Health, a Sacramento, Calif.-based health system, will use patient-generated data to inform diabetes care while assessing the infrastructure and workflows needed to implement and scale such initiatives. T. Results from the study will help Accenture to develop a research paper that identifies barriers to wider use of ...

Now that Phase 113 is over, it is time to share our findings with you! Jag walk is a survey that takes place once a week, every Thursday. It is a 15 mile walk on the beach, from our research base to Tortuguero, the nearest town, so on these days we always wish for a slightly overcast day so that we dont get scorched by the sun! The surveys aim is to monitor the impact of jaguar predation on marine turtles. On the way we document presence and absence of jaguar tracks, including entry and exit points between the rainforest edges and the beach, and count turtle tracks every half a mile. We also GPS any turtle carcasses, which have usually been killed by jaguars. Sometimes the carcasses have been dragged deep into the vegetation, so we have to machete our way through, which is an adventure on its own! The carcasses are studied and the estimation of date of kill is recorded, biometric data is taken and photographic evidence is documented. ...
Facebook will fork out more than a half-billion dollars to settle a class-action lawsuit against its facial recognition tech.. The antisocial network revealed the agreement yesterday while announcing its 2019 financial figures [PDF], which also showed expenses for the Silicon Valley monster have risen sharply.. Finally, [growth and administrative costs] grew 87 per cent largely driven by higher legal fees and settlements, Facebook CFO Dave Wehner told Wall Street analysts on a subsequent conference call. This includes charges related to a $550 million settlement in principle we reached this month in connection with the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act litigation.. That class-action suit, filed in 2015, alleged that Facebooks Tag Suggestions facial recognition feature, which automatically identified people in photos, was a violation of the US state of Illinois law that bans the use of biometric data without the subjects consent. Basically, folks were tagged by the software in ...
In computer science an in situ operation is one that occurs without interrupting the normal state of a system[citation needed]. For example, a file backup may be restored over a running system, without needing to take the system down to perform the restore. In the context of a database, a restore would allow the database system to continue to be available to users while a restore happened. An in situ upgrade would allow an operating system, firmware or application to be upgraded while the system was still running, perhaps without the need to reboot it, depending on the sophistication of the system. Another use of the term in-situ that appears in Computer Science focuses primarily on the use of technology and user interfaces to provide continuous access to situationally relevant information in various locations and contexts.[11][12] Examples include athletes viewing biometric data on smartwatches to improve their performance,[13] a presenter looking at tips on a smart glass to reduce their ...
Apropos of nothing heres a short story on online dating Ive been working on. As with so many anecdotes the idea behind this one traces its origins to a bar. I got talking to a chap who worked for an large gambling establishment. We had a shared interest in big data; I told him about some Twitter metadata projects, he told me about the information they had on their customers (quite a lot) and how they use it (you can probably imagine). Fast forward to a similar pub and once more Im discussing big data. This time its with a sales guy who tells me I wouldnt recognise the name of the company he works for. I dont push it. His company specialises in talking to companies that produce biometric data from pedometers, phones, workout trackers, sleep cycle apps, calorie counters and fitness games. They buy this data, aggregate it, remove personal information insofar as is required by privacy policies, and then sell the results to interested parties. Actuaries love the stuff. A few drinks later he ...

It would be good for students to acquire deeper knowledge of mathematics, especially statistics, in high school. But in any case, it is not the knowledge that is the most important, but other qualities: that the students are hardworking and diligent, that they are not too lazy to take a deeper look at what they are studying, and not just learn the basics to complete the given tasks. Another important quality that students, as well as young employees, sometimes lack is not being afraid to ask questions if they dont understand something. Asking a professor or senior colleague one question is often enough to solve a problem in minutes instead of hours. Do you have a favorite activity besides your work and a professional one? ...
