In this paper we present a novel real-time algorithm for simultaneous pose and shape estimation for articulated objects, such as human beings and animals. The key of our pose estimation component is to embed the articulated deformation model with exponential-maps-based parametrization into a Gaussian Mixture Model. Benefiting from this probabilistic(More)
This paper presents a novel compact coding approach , composite quantization, for approximate nearest neighbor search. The idea is to use the composition of several elements selected from the dictionaries to accurately approximate a vector and to represent the vector by a short code composed of the indices of the selected elements. To efficiently compute(More)
Postischemic seizures are associated with worsened outcome following stroke, but the underlying pathophysiology is poorly understood. Here we examined acute seizures in adult mice following hypoxia-ischemia (HI) via combined behavioral, electrophysiological, and histological assessments. C57BL/6 mice aged 4-9 months received a permanent occlusion of the(More)
We present doubly stochastic gradient MCMC, a simple and generic method for (approximate) Bayesian inference of deep gen-erative models in the collapsed continuous parameter space. At each MCMC sampling step, the algorithm randomly draws a mini-batch of data samples to estimate the gradient of log-posterior and further estimates the intractable expectation(More)
Memristors have been extensively studied for data storage and low-power computation applications. In this study, we show that memristors offer more than simple resistance change. Specifically, the dynamic evolutions of internal state variables allow an oxide-based memristor to exhibit Ca(2+)-like dynamics that natively encode timing information and regulate(More)
The HOXB1 gene plays a critical role as an oncogene in diverse tumors. However, the functional role of HOXB1 and the mechanism regulating HOXB1 expression in glioma are not fully understood. A preliminary bioinformatics analysis showed that HOXB1 is ectopically expressed in glioma, and that HOXB1 is a possible target of miR-3175. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND Functional gastrointestinal disorders, including functional dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome and functional constipation are very common worldwide. OBJECTIVE This research aims to estimate the prevalence and associated factors involved in functional gastrointestinal disorders in Chinese college and university students using the Rome III(More)
In the study, we analyzed role of p53 in predicting outcome in visceral metastasis breast cancer (VMBC) patients. 97 consecutive VMBC patients were studied. P53 positivity rate was 29.9%. In the p53-negative group, median disease free survival (DFS), and time from primary breast cancer diagnosis to death (OS1), time from metastases to death (OS2) were 25,(More)
AIM E-cadherin is unusually highly expressed in most ovarian cancers. This study was designed to investigate the roles of E-cadherin in the carcinogenesis and progression of ovarian cancers. METHODS Human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line SKOV-3 was examined. E-cadherin gene CDH1 in SKOV-3 cells was knocked down via RNA interference (RNAi), and the(More)
