Traffic control and vehicle owner identification has become major problem in every country. Sometimes it becomes difficult to identify vehicle owner who violates traffic rules and drives too fast. Therefore, it is not possible to catch and punish those kinds of people because the traffic personal might not be able to retrieve vehicle number from the moving(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the diagnostic accuracies for glaucoma detection of scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) with enhanced corneal compensation (GDx ECC) and variable corneal compensation (GDx VCC; both by Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA), according to different levels of disease severity and presence of atypical retardation patterns. METHODS The(More)
This paper describes a machine learning algorithm for Gujarati Part of Speech Tagging. The machine learning part is performed using a CRF model. The features given to CRF are properly chosen keeping the linguistic aspect of Gujarati in mind. As Gujarati is currently a less privileged language in the sense of being resource poor, manually tagged data is only(More)
Optical character recognition (OCR) method has been used in converting printed text into editable text. OCR is very useful and popular method in various applications. Accuracy of OCR can be dependent on text preprocessing and segmentation algorithms. Sometimes it is difficult to retrieve text from the image because of different size, style, orientation,(More)
BACKGROUND Many medicines, including several cholesterol-lowering agents (eg, lovastatin, simvastatin), antihypertensives (eg, diltiazem, nifedipine, verapamil), and antifungals (eg, ketoconazole) are metabolized by and/or inhibit the cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 metabolic pathway. These types of medicines are commonly coprescribed to treat comorbidities in(More)
This paper presents an ant system algorithm for the graph coloring problem. This ant system algorithm has several new features compared to previous ant system algorithms for the coloring problem. The main idea of the algorithm is for a colony of ants to color the graph, in which ants use its knowledge about the local neighborhood, recently visited nodes,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of adverse events in elderly trauma patients with isolated blunt thoracic trauma, and to identify variables associated with these adverse events. METHODS We performed a chart review of 160 trauma patients age 65 and older with significant blunt thoracic trauma, drawn from an American College of Surgeons Level I Trauma(More)
Web search engines exploit conjunctive queries and special ranking criteria which differ from the disjunctive queries typically used for ad-hoc retrieval. We wanted to asses the effectiveness of those techniques in the TeraByte task, in particular scoring criteria like: link popularity, proximity boosting, home page score, descriptions and anchor text.(More)
A significant number of patients with patellofemoral osteoarthritis (PFOA) have described a history of patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). This leads to speculation that the underpinning mechanical causes of PFPS and PFOA may be similar. Although alterations in gait biomechanics and hip strength have been reported in PFPS, this relationship has not yet(More)
The objectives of oil and gas produced water treatment include meeting discharge regulations (local, state and federal), reusing treated produced water in oil and gas operations, developing agricultural water uses, rangeland restoration, cattle and animal drinking water, water for human consumption, and meeting water quality requirements for miscellaneous(More)
