Most modern text-to-speech (TTS) systems are unit selection style. In this kind of system, the predicted prosody values, such as pitch, duration and energy values for each synthesis unit, are important factors to conduct unit selection. We present a probability based prosody model in which the distribution of prosody values in a given context equivalent(More)
Computational methods are employed to simulate the interaction of the sea anemone toxin ShK in complex with the voltage-gated potassium channel Kv1.3 from mice. All of the available 20 structures of ShK in the Protein Data Bank were considered for improving the performance of the rigid protein docking of ZDOCK. The traditional and novel binding modes were(More)
The requirement of quickly creating new value-added telecom services is increasingly becoming a business imperative today. Telecom operators and service providers are facing the challenge how to reduce cost and time-to-market of creating new services. The reduction is expected to be 1 or 2 orders of magnitude from months or weeks to days, even hours. In(More)
EAI and SOA are widely adopted in enterprise information systems with business processes being orchestrated by a process engine. An algorithm which schedules tasks of process instances to maximize overall customer satisfaction is proposed in this paper. This new algorithm maximizes the total value of all process instances by dynamically assigning different(More)
With the boom of telecom value-added services, operators and service providers have to face the challenge how to reduce the development cost and time to market of creating new services. Such reduction is expected to be 1 or 2 orders of magnitude from months or weeks to days, even hours. In traditional service creation environment, a full lifecycle of(More)
The control system of three-axis flight simulator was required to have excellent dynamic tracing performance as well as fine noise-restrained property because the coupling in the frames of the flight simulator and the indeterminate time-invariant disturber in the hydraulic pressure system exists. Based on the characteristic of three-axis flight simulator,(More)
In this paper, a new method is proposed to improve the canonical Katz back-off smoothing technique in language modeling. The process of Katz smoothing is detailedly analyzed and the global discounting parameters are selected for discounting. Further more, a modified version of the formula for discounting parameters is proposed, in which the discounting(More)
