This paper investigates the effectiveness of measures related to vocal tract characteristics in classifying normal and pathological speech. Unlike conventional approaches that mainly focus on features related to the vocal source, vocal tract characteristics are examined to determine if interaction effects between vocal folds and the vocal tract can be used(More)
—Efficient service description and modeling methodologies are essential for dynamic service composition to provide autonomous services for users in ubiquitous computing environments. In our previous research, we proposed a 'u-service' ontology which is an abstract and structured concept for device operations in ubiquitous environments. One of the problems(More)
To provide dynamic services for users in a ubiquitous environment, an efficient context-aware service discovery mechanism is essential. Most of current researches are focused on composing services which satisfy pre-defined service specifications, by checking the availability of the devices and finding services that satisfy the user's preference. In this(More)
—This paper proposes an efficient feature extraction method for automatic diagnosis systems to detect pathological subjects using continuous speech. Since continuous speech contains slow and rapid adjustments of vocal mechanisms which relate to initiations and terminations of voicing, the proposed algorithm utilizes both localized temporal characteristics(More)
This paper proposes a new feature extraction method for automatically detecting pathological voice in a normal conversation scenario. Unlike conventional approaches that utilize the static harmonic-to-noise ratio (HNR) characteristics of sustained vowel, the proposed method considers the dynamic movements of articulatory organs depending on the types of(More)
This study was conducted to investigate whether administration of IH901, a ginseng intestinal metabolite, ameliorates exercise-induced oxidative stress while preserving antioxidant defense capability in rat skeletal muscles and lung. Eight adult male Sprague-Dawley rats per group were randomly assigned to the resting control, exercise control, resting with(More)
