In opinion mining of product reviews, one often wants to produce a summary of opinions based on product features/attributes. However, for the same feature, people can express it with different words and phrases. To produce a meaningful summary, these words and phrases, which are domain synonyms, need to be grouped under the same feature group. This paper(More)

Features play a fundamental role in sentiment classification. How to effectively select different types of features to improve sentiment classification performance is the primary topic of this paper. Ngram features are commonly employed in text classification tasks; in this paper, sentiment-words, substrings, substring-groups, and key-substring-groups,(More)
This paper extends the Boltzmann Selection, a method in EDA with theoretical importance, from discrete domain to the continuous one. The difficulty of estimating the exact Boltzmann distribution in continuous state space is circumvented by adopting the multivariate Gaussian model, which is popular in continuous EDA, to approximate only the final sampling(More)
Using our dynamic Bayesian network with structural Expectation Maximization (SEM-DBN), we develop a new framework to model gene regulatory network from both gene expression data and transcriptional factor binding site data. Only based on mRNA expression data, it is not enough to accurately estimate a gene network. It is difficult for us to estimate a gene(More)
Road information understanding is a necessary task for intelligent vehicles and driver assistance systems. Previous research mostly focused on the detection and estimation of lane position. Other information provided by road markers was scarcely mentioned. We propose a shape-based road marker detection and recognition method in this paper. The 8-neighbor(More)
Opinion leaders play a very important role in information diffusion; they are found in all fields of society and influence the opinions of the masses in their fields. Most proposed algorithms on identifying opinion leaders in internet social network are global measure algorithms and usually omit the fact that opinion leaders are field-limited. We propose(More)
An anytime algorithm based on modified genetic algorithm (GA) for dynamic WTA problem, subject to temporal constraints, is developed in the paper. In the algorithm the weapons are assigned to targets one by one before the deadline of each target comes. After a target is assigned with some weapon, the target is replaced by a new one in all chromosomes in the(More)
