Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most frequent form of DNA variation and disease-causing mutations in many genes. Due to their abundance and slow mutation rate within generations, they are thought to be the next generation of genetic markers that can be used in a myriad of important biological, genetic, pharmacological, and medical(More)
Recently visual saliency has attracted wide attention of researchers in the computer vision and multimedia field. However, most of the visual saliency-related research was conducted on still images for studying static saliency. In this paper, we give a comprehensive comparative study for the first time of dynamic saliency (video shots) and static saliency(More)
Sign-random-projection locality-sensitive hashing (SRP-LSH) is a widely used hashing method, which provides an unbiased estimate of pairwise angular similarity, yet may suffer from its large estimation variance. We propose in this work batch-orthogonal locality-sensitive hashing (BOLSH), as a significant improvement of SRP-LSH. Instead of independent random(More)
Fundamental physics under the surface plasmon (SP) of graphene and the functional application beyond ultraviolet (UV) lasing of ZnO are both fascinating research areas. Herein, the optical field confinement induced by graphene SP was simulated theoretically in a graphene-coated ZnO microrod, which acted as a whispering-gallery microcavity for lasing(More)
Video text often contains highly useful semantic information that can contribute significantly to video retrieval and understanding. Video text can be classified into scene text and superimposed text. Most of the previous methods detect superimposed or scene text separately due to different text alignments. Moreover, because different language characters(More)
Extracting and mining social networks information from massive Web data is of both theoretical and practical significance. However, one of definite features of this task was a large scale data processing, which remained to be a great challenge that would be addressed. MapReduce is a kind of distributed programming model. Just through the implementation of(More)
