In this letter, a class of improved extreme learning machines (ELM) encoding a priori information is proposed to obtain better generalization performance and much faster convergence rate for function approximation. According to Fourier series expansion theory, the hidden neurons activation functions in the improved ELM are sine and cosine functions. In(More)
DL-3-n-butylphthalide (NBP) is a therapeutic drug used for ischemic stroke treatment. Here, we investigated the impact of NBP on the development of rat diabetic cataract induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ). NBP was then administrated by oral gavage for nine weeks. Cataract development was monitored through ophthalmoscope(More)
—Loop closure detection is an essential component for simultaneously localization and mapping in a variety of robotics applications. One of the most challenging problems is to perform long-term place recognition with strong perceptual aliasing and appearance variations due to changes of illumination, vegetation, weather, etc. To address this challenge, we(More)
—Spatiotemporal human representation based on 3D visual perception data is a rapidly growing research area. Based on the information sources, these representations can be broadly categorized into two groups based on RGB-D information or 3D skeleton data. Recently, skeleton-based human representations have been intensively studied and kept attracting an(More)
In this paper, we are devoted to investigate the consensus-based distributed state estimation problems for a class of sensor networks within the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) framework. The communication status among sensors is represented by a connected undirected graph. Moreover, a weighted average consensus-based UKF algorithm is developed for the(More)
Although many studies have investigated intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), sample sizes in the reported studies are usually small and different in outcomes in different T and N subgroups are seldom analyzed. Herein, we evaluated the outcomes of NPC patients treated with IMRT and further explored treatment(More)
