The Adaboosting has attracted attention for its efficient face-detection performance. However, in the training process, the large number of possible Haar-like features in a standard sub-window becomes time consuming, which makes specific environment feature adaptation extremely difficult. This letter presents a two-stage hybrid face detection scheme using(More)
Purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) is a key enzyme in the purine salvage pathway. It catalyses the reversible phosphorolysis of purine (2'-deoxy)ribonucleosides to free bases and (2'-deoxy)ribose 1-phosphates. Here, a novel piscine viral PNP gene that was identified from grouper iridovirus (GIV), a causative agent of an epizootic fish disease, is(More)
In this paper, the Pixel-Based Hierarchical-Feature Adaboosting (PBHFA) method is presented. The purpose of this approach is the reduction of computation complexity in face-detection tasks. The Adaboosting method has attracted attention for its efficient face-detection performance. However, in the training process, the large number of possible Haar-like(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the methodological quality of systematic reviews and meta-analyses regarding acupuncture intervention for stroke and the primary studies within them. METHODS Two researchers searched PubMed, Cumulative index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Embase, ISI Web of Knowledge, Cochrane, Allied and Complementary Medicine, Ovid Medline,(More)
Objective. To determine whether immunological serum markers IFN-γ, IL-4, IL-17, IL-23, IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-10 are elevated or decreased in patients compared with healthy controls. Methods. A complete search of the literature on this topic within the past 30 years was conducted across seven databases. Seventeen studies including 768 individuals were(More)
