We present an online data association algorithm for multiobject tracking using structured prediction. This problem is formulated as a bipartite matching and solved by a generalized classification, specifically, Structural Support Vector Machines (S-SVM). Our structural classifier is trained based on matching results given the similarities between all pairs(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to review the long-term (5 to 10 years) clinical and urodynamic outcome in patients with stress urinary incontinence after Burch colposuspension. STUDY DESIGN A follow-up of 87 women with stress urinary incontinence who had a Burch colposuspension between 1979 and 1985 at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of(More)
Many machine learning algorithms assume that all input samples are independently and identically distributed from some common distribution on either the input space X, in the case of unsupervised learning, or the input and output space X x Y in the case of supervised and semi-supervised learning. In the last number of years the relaxation of this assumption(More)
A model for integration of low-level responses to damage, potential damage and component failure in robots is presented. This model draws on the notion of inflammation and introduces an extensible, sub-symbolic mechanism for modulating high-level behaviour using the notion of artificial inflammation. Preliminary results obtained via simulation are presented(More)
Theoretical analyses of the Dendritic Cell Algorithm (DCA) have yielded several criticisms about its underlying structure and operation. As a result, several alterations and fixes have been suggested in the literature to correct for these findings. A contribution of this work is to investigate the effects of replacing the classification stage of the DCA(More)

Biomarkers which predict patient’s survival can play an important role in medical diagnosis and treatment. How to select the significant biomarkers from hundreds of protein markers is a key step in survival analysis. In this paper a novel method is proposed to detect the prognostic biomarkers of survival in colorectal cancer patients using wavelet analysis,(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to prospectively and randomly compare tension free vaginal tape (TVT) with transobturator suburethral tape (TVT O) for the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. STUDY DESIGN 288 women with SUI were randomly assigned to either TVT (n-141) or TVT O (n-147). The preoperative evaluation(More)
While biology has inspired much of the vocabulary in computer security, biologically-inspired security remains a controversial research strategy. This panel was convened to address the issue of biologically-inspired security by raising the question of whether there is anything left to learn. The discussion at NSPW touched on many issues, ranging from the(More)
OBJECTIVE Polypropylene mesh in the treatment of genital prolapse in women was introduced at the turn of the millennium with the rationale of decreasing surgical invasiveness, reinforcing weak tissues and to possibly complement insufficient surgical techniques. Prospective randomized studies comparing traditional and modern operations are lacking. SUBJECT(More)
