Recursive structure is commonly found in the inputs of different modalities such as natural scene images or natural language sentences. Discovering this recursive structure helps us to not only identify the units that an image or sentence contains but also how they interact to form a whole. We introduce a max-margin structure prediction architecture based(More)
In this paper, we examine the evolution of the impact of older scholarly articles. We attempt to answer four questions. First, how often are older articles cited in scholarly papers and how has this changed over time. Second, how does the impact of older articles vary across different fields of scholarship. Third, is the change in the impact of older(More)
Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the principal cause of serious long-term disability in the United States. Accurate prediction of stroke is highly valuable for early intervention and treatment. In this study, we compare the Cox proportional hazards model with a machine learning approach for stroke prediction on the Cardiovascular Health Study(More)
Digital microfluidic biochips have emerged as a popular alternative for laboratory experiments. To make the biochip feasible for practical applications, pin-count reduction is a key problem to higher-level integration of reactions on a biochip. Most previous works approach the problem by post-processing the placement and routing solutions to share(More)
Digital microfluidic biochips have emerged as a popular alternative for laboratory experiments. Pin-count reduction and cross-contamination avoidance are key design considerations for practical applications with different droplets being transported and manipulated on highly integrated biochips. We present in this paper the <i>first</i> design automation(More)
In this paper, we examine the evolution of the impact of non-elite journals. We attempt to answer two questions. First, what fraction of the top-cited articles are published in non-elite journals and how has this changed over time. Second, what fraction of the total citations are to non-elite journals and how has this changed over time. To answer these(More)
CAD problems for microfluidic biochips have recently gained much attention. One critical issue is the droplet routing problem. On <i>cross-referencing</i> biochips, the routing problem requires an efficient way to tackle the complexity of simultaneous droplet routing, scheduling and voltage assignment. In this paper, we present the <i>first</i> SAT based(More)
