MOTIVATION Although controlled biochemical or biological vocabularies, such as Gene Ontology (GO) (http://www.geneontology.org), address the need for consistent descriptions of genes in different data sources, there is still no effective method to determine the functional similarities of genes based on gene annotation information from heterogeneous data(More)
s image data acquisition technology has advanced in the past decade, museums have routinely begun to assemble vast digital libraries of images of their collections. The cross-disciplinary interaction of image analysis researchers and art historians has reached a stage where technology developers can focus on image analysis tasks supportive of the art(More)
We investigated how shape features in natural images influence emotions aroused in human beings. Shapes and their characteristics such as roundness, angularity, simplicity, and complexity have been postulated to affect the emotional responses of human beings in the field of visual arts and psychology. However, no prior research has modeled the(More)
In this paper, We discuss the server level data allocation problems in the distributed Video-on-Demand systems. We proposed two data allocation algorithms, Bandwidth Weighted Partition (BWP) algorithm and Popularity Based (PB) algorithm, based on the bandwidth and storage capacity limits of the distributed multimedia servers. We compare those two algorithms(More)
—Satellite image classification is an important technique used in remote sensing for the computerized analysis and pattern recognition of satellite data, which facilitates the automated interpretation of a large amount of information. Today there exist many types of classification algorithms, such as parallelepiped and minimum distance classifiers, but it(More)
Art historians have long observed the highly characteristic brushstroke styles of Vincent van Gogh and have relied on discerning these styles for authenticating and dating his works. In our work, we compared van Gogh with his contemporaries by statistically analyzing a massive set of automatically extracted brushstrokes. A novel extraction method is(More)
