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)
Effective visual features are essential for computational aesthetic quality rating systems. Existing methods used machine learning and statistical modeling techniques on handcrafted features or generic image descriptors. A recently-published large-scale dataset, the AVA dataset, has further empowered machine learning based approaches. We present the RAPID(More)
This paper investigates problems of image style, aesthetics , and quality estimation, which require fine-grained details from high-resolution images, utilizing deep neural network training approach. Existing deep convolutional neural networks mostly extracted one patch such as a down-sized crop from each image as a training example. However, one patch may(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)
