Analyses and applications of big data require special technologies to efficiently process large number of data. Mining association rules focus on obtaining relations between data. When mining association rules in big data, conventional methods encounter severe problems incurred by the tremendous cost of computing and inefficiency to achieve the goal. This(More)
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most prevalent malignancy worldwide given its high incidence, considerable mortality, and poor prognosis. The anti-malaria compounds artemisinin (ART), dihydroartemisinin (DHA), and artesunate (ARTS) reportedly have anti-cancer potential, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. In this work, we used flow(More)
Some applications of the interconnected embedded systems such as sensor networks rely on all nodes in the network to execute certain tasks simultaneously. To meet this demand for simultaneity, a multi-timer model based fully distributed task synchronization algorithm is proposed in this paper. In this multi-timer model, each node containing an embedded(More)
Response rates to conventional chemotherapeutics remain unsatisfactory for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) due to the high rates of chemoresistance and recurrence. Tumor-initiating cancer stem-like cells (CSLCs) are refractory to chemotherapy, and their enrichment leads to subsequent development of chemoresistance and recurrence. To overcome the(More)
Identifying events of a specific type is a challenging task as events in texts are described in numerous and diverse ways. Aiming to resolve high complexities of event descriptions, previous work (Huang and Riloff, 2013) proposes multi-faceted event recognition and a bootstrapping method to automatically acquire both event facet phrases and event(More)
