This paper presents new algorithms to identify and eliminate mislabelled, noisy and atypical training samples for supervised learning and more specifically, for nearest neighbour classification. The main goal of these approaches is to enhance the classification accuracy by improving the quality of the training data. Several experiments with synthetic and(More)
In this work we report the possibility that oocyte immaturity is associated with premature chromosome condensation (PCC) after in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Using a murine model, we have related PCC and endoreduplicated-like oocytes to oocyte immaturity as a basis for a prognosis in oocyte immaturity problems. The cytogenetic analysis was performed in 511(More)
It has been suggested that the abnormal maturation of the human oocyte during fertilization in vitro may result in chromosome imbalance and induce embryonic loss. Using a mouse model, we have studied the influence of the degree of oocyte maturation (either immaturity or overmaturity) on the chromosome characteristics of embryos at the first-cleavage(More)
The influence of some technical and biological parameters on the genetic characteristics of embryos derived from in vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques was studied. Using a murine model, we assessed the effect of gamete manipulation, gamete maturation stage, and maternal age on the chromosome complements of firstcleavage embryos. We found a positive(More)
This paper is concerned with an efficient estimation and segmentation of 2D motion from image sequences, with the focus on traffic monitoring applications. In order to reduce the computational load to achieve real-time implementation, the proposed approach makes use of simplifying assumptions that the camera is stationary, and that the projection of(More)

This paper 1 describes a method for tracking regions in image sequences. Regions segmented from each frame by a motion segmentation technique are matched by using a relaxation procedure. Matching is based on measuring the similarity of the regions from the current frame and a list of regions corresponding to objects. A Kalman filter is used in order to(More)
The use of human material does not allow the determination of the influence of different parameters on the genetic characteristics of the embryos derived from in-vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques. Using a murine model we assessed the effect of gamete manipulation, maternal age and oocyte ageing on the chromosome complements of the embryos. We have found(More)
