We propose a new framework for estimating generative models via an adversar-ial process, in which we simultaneously train two models: a generative model G that captures the data distribution, and a discriminative model D that estimates the probability that a sample came from the training data rather than G. The training procedure for G is to maximize the(More)
In this paper we investigate the performance of different types of rectified activation functions in convolutional neural network: standard rectified linear unit (ReLU), leaky rectified linear unit (Leaky ReLU), parametric rectified linear unit (PReLU) and a new ran-domized leaky rectified linear units (RReLU). We evaluate these activation function on(More)
The ICML 2013 Workshop on Challenges in Representation Learning(1) focused on three challenges: the black box learning challenge, the facial expression recognition challenge, and the multimodal learning challenge. We describe the datasets created for these challenges and summarize the results of the competitions. We provide suggestions for organizers of(More)
Cotton fibres are unicellular seed trichomes. Our previous study suggested that the cotton R2R3 MYB transcript factor GaMYB2 is a functional homologue of the Arabidopsis trichome regulator GLABRA1 (GL1). Here, the GaMYB2 promoter activity is reported in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), and Arabidopsis plants. A 2062 bp promoter of(More)
Most image database prototypes and products focus mainly on similarity searches over syntactic features of images. DISIMA aims at providing querying on both syntactic and semantic features of images. The content of an image is viewed as a set of salient objects (regions of interest). Salient objects are organized into two levels: physical salient objects(More)
Music and image are two most popular media on the Internet. Human perception of music and image are highly correlated. Music video is one of such products, in which music and image are complement to each other. In this paper, we present a system which can automatically generate music video for a given song. The challenge of such system comes from how to(More)
Alzheimer disease (AD) is characterized by neurodegeneration marked by loss of synapses and spines associated with hyperphosphorylation of tau protein. Accumulating amyloid β peptide (Aβ) in brain is linked to neurofibrillary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated tau in AD. Here, we identify β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR) that mediates Aβ-induced tau(More)
Extensive surveillance of influenza A viruses in different avian species is critical for understanding its transmission. Here, a breeding colony of Little Egrets and Black-crowned Night Herons was monitored both serologically and virologically in a city park of Jiangxi in 2009. A portion of herons had antibodies against H7 (52%), H5 (55%) and H9 (6%)(More)
