Under noise-free conditions, the quality of reverberant speech is dependent on two distinct perceptual components: coloration and long-term reverberation. They correspond to two physical variables: signal-to-reverberant energy ratio (SRR) and reverberation time, respectively. Inspired by this observation, we propose a two-stage reverberant speech(More)
We present a robust algorithm for multi-pitch tracking of noisy speech. Our approach integrates an improved channel and peak selection method, a new integration method for extracting periodicity information across different frequency channels, and a hidden Markov model (HMM) for forming continuous pitch tracks, and as a result, our algorithm can reliably(More)
Silk fibroin heavy chain is the major protein component of Bombyx mori silk fibroin and is composed of 12 repetitive and 11 non-repetitive regions, with the non-repetitive domain consisting of a hydrophilic polypeptide chain. In order to determine the biomedical function of the non-repetitive domain or potentially use it to modify hydrophobic biomaterials,(More)
This paper explores key factors to maintain fairness in e-sports like Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games: Dota 2, League of Legends, and Heroes of the Storm. It analyzes the degree of fairness based on the winning ratio. Moreover, it considers the evolution of MOBA games with focus on three major factors: the ban and pick system, balancing(More)
Previous research showed that different cultures play a significant role in influencing people's perception and cognition: Eastern people attend more to the background and context, whereas western people focus more on objects. However, the culture influence on people's aesthetic perception and experience has not been systematically explored. In the first(More)
