Response to Commentary by Dr. Thomas Becker

David C. Jacobs
2004 Journal of management inquiry  
I thank Thomas Becker for his thoughtful comments. His piece is an effective explication of the "Objectivist" critique of pragmatism. "Objectivism" provides a bold perspective, inspiring to many.  ...  Third, Becker insists that pragmatism subordinates the individual to the collective. He warns that group deliberations are problematic and not necessarily better than individual decisions.  ...

Dynamical pattern formation upon dewetting [article]

Jürgen Becker, Günther Grün, Ralf Seemann, Karin Jacobs
2001 arXiv   pre-print
Dewetting of thin liquid films is monitored in situ by atomic force microscopy, results are compared with simulations. The experimental setting is mimicked as close as possible using the experimental parameters including the effective interface potential. Numerics for the thin film equation are based on recently developed schemes which are up to now the only methods convergent in all relevant space dimensions. Temporal evolution and morphology of experiment and simulation are compared

Bacterial linguistic communication and social intelligence

Eshel Ben Jacob, Israela Becker, Yoash Shapira, Herbert Levine
2004 Trends in Microbiology  
Bacteria have developed intricate communication capabilities (e.g. quorum-sensing, chemotactic signaling and plasmid exchange) to cooperatively self-organize into highly structured colonies with elevated environmental adaptability. We propose that bacteria use their intracellular flexibility, involving signal transduction networks and genomic plasticity, to collectively maintain linguistic communication: self and shared interpretations of chemical cues, exchange of chemical messages (semantic)
more » ... nd dialogues (pragmatic). Meaning-based communication permits colonial identity, intentional behavior (e.g. pheromone-based courtship for mating), purposeful alteration of colony structure (e.g. formation of fruiting bodies), decision-making (e.g. to sporulate) and the recognition and identification of other colonies -features we might begin to associate with a bacterial social intelligence. Such a social intelligence, should it exist, would require going beyond communication to encompass unknown additional intracellular processes to generate inheritable colonial memory and commonly shared genomic context.

Geometric Control for Load Transportation with Quadrotor UAVs by Elastic Cables [article]

Jacob R. Goodman, Juan S. Cely, Thomas Beckers, Leonardo J. Colombo
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Groups of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly utilized in transportation task as the combined strength allows to increase the maximum payload. However, the resulting mechanical coupling of the UAVs impose new challenges in terms of the tracking control. Thus, we design a geometric trajectory tracking controller for the cooperative task of four quadrotor UAVs carrying and transporting a rigid body, which is attached to the quadrotors via inflexible elastic cables. The elasticity of

In this reduced model, we design a controller such that the position and attitude of the load exponentially converges to a given desired trajectory. We then show that this result leads to an uniformly converging tracking error for the original elastic model under some assumptions. Furthermore, under the presence of unstructured disturbances on the system, we show that the error is ultimately bounded with an arbitrarily small bound. Finally, a simulation illustrates the theoretical results.

Sensitivity of prenatal ultrasound for detection of trisomy 18

2018 Figshare  
Objectives: To evaluate the sensitivity of prenatal ultrasound (US) for trisomy (T18) diagnosis and describe US findings in a large tertiary care institution in the USA. Materials and methods: This was a retrospective cohort of all T18 cases diagnosed at our institution from October 2004 to October 2014 based on prenatal or postnatal genetic diagnostic testing. We included all women with a fetus affected by T18 who had a comprehensive US by a maternal–fetal medicine specialist performed at our

Results: We included 128 cases of T18 with confirmed cytogenetic analysis −110 (86%) of which were diagnosed prenatally or suspected by cell-free DNA and confirmed postnatally, and 18 of which underwent neonatal blood sampling alone. One hundred and twenty-one (95%) had at least one abnormal US finding. Anomalies were more frequently identified on US at ≥20 weeks as compared with <20 weeks (93% versus 76%; p = .004). The mean number of findings detected per fetus was 5.1 ± 3.0. Fetuses diagnosed by postnatal sampling alone had a similar number of US exams performed and number of abnormal findings compared to those diagnosed prenatally. Conclusion: Ninety-five percent of fetuses with T18 had at least one abnormal US finding. This sensitivity of is higher than reported in most prior studies, but is not 100%, and should be considered when counseling women regarding prenatal diagnosis of T18. Rationale: Historical detection rates for abnormal sonographic findings in trisomy 18 fetuses range from 70% to 100%. These studies are limited by small sample sizes. This is a contemporary study of ultrasound findings in a large group of women with confirmed trisomy 18 by prenatal or postnatal genetic diagnosis. We provide expansive detail on soft markers and anomalies broken down by organ-system and gestational age.
