Privacy-preserving data mining (PPDM) is an important topic to both industry and academia. In general there are two approaches to tackling PPDM, one is statistics-based and the other is crypto-based. The statistics-based approach has the advantage of being efficient enough to deal with large volume of datasets. The basic idea underlying this approach is to(More)
In radar tracking application, the observation noise is highly non-Gaussian, which is also referred as glint noise. The performance of extended Kalman filter degrades severely in the presence of glint noise. In this paper, an improved particle filter, Markov chain Monte Carlo particle filter (MCMC-PF), is introduced to cope with radar target tracking in(More)
Although the whole tumor cell vaccine can provide the best source of immunizing antigens, there is still a limitation that most tumors are not naturally immunogenic. Tumor cells genetically modified to secrete immune activating cytokines have been proved to be more immunogenic. IL-18 could augment proliferation of T cells and cytotoxicity of NK cells.(More)
Privacy-preserving data mining (PPDM) is an important problem and is currently studied in three approaches: the cryptographic approach, the data publishing, and the model publishing. However, each of these approaches has some problems. The cryptographic approach does not protect privacy of learned knowledge models and may have performance and scalability(More)
Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder that causes uncontrolled repetitive motor and vocal tics in children. Examining the neural basis of TS churned out different research studies that advanced our understanding of the brain pathways involved in its development. Particularly, growing evidence points to abnormalities within the(More)
An examination of the effect of B- and P-doping and codoping on the electronic structure of anatase TiO2 by performing density functional theory calculations revealed the following: (i) B- or P-doping effects are similar to atomic undercoordination effects on local bond relaxation and core electron entrapment; (ii) the locally entrapped charge adds impurity(More)
