In this work, we propose a method for simultaneously learning features and a corresponding similarity metric for person re-identification. We present a deep convolutional architecture with layers specially designed to address the problem of re-identification. Given a pair of images as input, our network outputs a similarity value indicating whether the two(More)
—Recently, Cloud-based Mobile Augmentation (CMA) approaches have gained remarkable ground from academia and industry. CMA is the state-of-the-art mobile augmentation model that employs resource-rich clouds to increase, enhance, and optimize computing capabilities of mobile devices aiming at execution of resource-intensive mobile applications. Augmented(More)
Haloxylines A (1) and B (2), new piperidine alkaloids, have been isolated from the chloroform soluble fraction of Haloxylon salicornicum and their structures elucidated by spectroscopic techniques including 2D-NMR. Both the compounds displayed antifungal and cholinesterase enzymes inhibitory potentials.
BACKGROUND Long-term effects of uninephrectomy for kidney donation are of particular interest in the currently increasing practice of living-donor transplantation. We have retrospectively analyzed the general health status and renal and cardiovascular consequences of living-related kidney donation. METHODS Data of living-related kidney donors who were(More)
Keywords: Man-At-The-End Software protection Information security Digital rights management Digital assets Distributed software systems a b s t r a c t Man-At-The-End (MATE) attacks and fortifications are difficult to analyze, model, and evaluate predominantly for three reasons: firstly, the attacker is human and, therefore, utilizes motivation, creativity,(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Paid living unrelated kidney donor transplantation has flourished in Pakistan and Iran. This review discusses the dynamics and consequences of organ trade in Pakistan and of a regulated paid donor model in Iran on transplant activities in these countries. RECENT FINDINGS In 2007, over 2500 renal transplants were performed in Pakistan,(More)
The efficacy of isoniazid (INH) prophylaxis in renal allograft recipients who are on long-term immunosuppression in a region highly prevalent for tuberculosis (TB) was studied. INH (300 mg/d in patients weighing more than 35 kg and 5 mg/kg/d in patients with <35 kg body weight) together with Pyridoxine 50 mg/d for 1 year was started in randomly assigned(More)
AIM In the absence of a national renal biopsy registry, there is a paucity of information on the pattern of renal disease observed in native renal biopsies in adults in Pakistan. METHODS A retrospective review of native renal biopsies performed in adult patients was undertaken at the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) during the period(More)
Mobile Edge Computing is an emerging technology that provides cloud and IT services within the close proximity of mobile subscribers. Traditional telecom network operators perform traffic control flow (forwarding and filtering of packets), but in Mobile Edge Computing, cloud servers are also deployed in each base station. Therefore, network operator has a(More)
Seamless application execution is vital for the usability of various delay-sensitive mobile cloud applications. However, the resource-intensive migration process and intrinsic limitations of the wireless medium impede the realization of seamless execution in mobile cloud computing (MCC) environment. This work is the first comprehensive survey that studies(More)
