Surveillance of epidemic outbreaks and spread from social media is an important tool for governments and public health authorities. Machine learning techniques for now casting the flu have made significant inroads into correlating social media trends to case counts and prevalence of epidemics in a population. There is a disconnect between data-driven(More)

Systems biology has made massive strides in recent years, with capabilities to model complex systems including cell division, stress response, energy metabolism, and signaling pathways. Concomitant with their improved modeling capabilities, however, such biochemical network models have also become notoriously complex for humans to comprehend. We propose(More)
We present ARMiCoRe, a novel approach to a classical bioinformatics problem, viz. multiple sequence alignment (MSA) of gene and protein sequences. Aligning multiple biological sequences is a key step in elucidating evolutionary relationships, annotating newly sequenced segments, and understanding the relationship between biological sequences and functions.(More)
In this paper, we propose a new observation model with optimizing particle filter framework for visual object tracking in the present of occlusion. Most of the existing algorithms are able to track the object only in predefined and well controlled environment. In computer vision research area, it is challenging task to track when objects get close and(More)
In Supreme Court parlance and the political science literature , an ideal point positions a justice in a continuous space and can be interpreted as a quantification of the justice's policy preferences. We present an automated approach to infer such ideal points for justices of the US Supreme Court. This approach combines topic modeling over case opinions(More)
Early detection and modeling of a contagious epidemic can provide important guidance about quelling the contagion, controlling its spread, or the effective design of countermeasures. A topic of recent interest has been to design social network sensors, i.e., identifying a small set of people who can be monitored to provide insight into the emergence of an(More)
Residue coupling in protein families is an important indicator for structural and functional conservation. Two residues are coupled if changes of amino acid at one residue location are correlated with changes in the other. Many algorithmic techniques have been proposed to discover couplings in protein families. These approaches discover couplings over amino(More)
