StarCraft is one of the most famous Real-Time Strategy Games and there have been several competitions on AI bots. In order to win StarCraft, players have to predict their opponents strategy and respond properly. Human players used to scout their opponent territory using a unit and gathering information through direct observation to predict their opponents(More)
If a small dc-link capacitor is used in the dc link fed by a single-phase ac source, then the dc-link voltage severely fluctuates at twice of the source frequency. To handle this fluctuation, the concept of “average voltage constraint” is proposed in this study. On the basis of this concept, a flux-weakening scheme, generating the d-axis(More)
Excessive expectancy or an aversion to acupuncture makes it difficult to evaluate the efficacy of acupuncture during clinical trials. We investigated whether experimental manipulations of the perception of acupuncture could elicit different responses to identical acupuncture stimulation. Seventeen participants were assessed with the acupuncture belief scale(More)
Bacterial blight (BB) of rice (Oryza sativa L.) caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is a destructive disease in rice worldwide. Xa3, a gene conferring resistance to BB at the booting stage of the rice plant, has been characterized previously using map-based cloning. We cloned and sequenced the Xa3/xa3 gene in the Korean cultivars Hwayeong, Ilmi,(More)
"G protein-coupled receptor 40" (GPR40), a receptor for long-chain fatty acids, mediates the stimulation of glucose-induced insulin secretion. We examined the profiles of differential gene expression in GPR40-activated cells treated with linoleic acid, and finally predicted the integral pathways of the cellular mechanism of GPR40-mediated insulinotropic(More)
Sesamin, an active ingredient of Asiasarum heterotropoides, is known to exhibit many bioactive functions, but the effect thereof on vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation remains poorly understood. Hence, we explored the antiproliferative action of sesamin on VSMCs and the underlying mechanism thereof, focusing on possible effects of sesamin on(More)
We investigated the anti-hypertensive and vascular protective effects of the combination of valsartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker, and ramipril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. We administered the highest possible equivalent doses of both drugs (averages: 15.3 mg/kg of valsartan and 0.48 mg/kg of ramipril) to spontaneously hypertensive rats(More)
Recently, the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game has become one of the most popular video game genres. It is also known as the Do-tA (Defense of the Ancients)-like game. As an online-based matching game, it could be important to analyze players' social structure. In LOL (League of Legends), the most popular MOBA game, players form a team and fight(More)
In the General Video Game-AI competition in 2014 IEEE Computational Intelligence in Games, Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS) outperformed other alternatives. Interestingly, the sample MCTS ranked in the third place. However, MCTS was not always perfect in this problem. For example, it cannot explore enough search space of video games because of time(More)
The increased potential for vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) growth is a key abnormality in the development of atherosclerosis and post-angioplasty restenosis. Abnormally high activity of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is believed to play a central role in the etiology of these pathophysiological situations. Here, we investigated the(More)
