In this paper, a speaker adaptation method to adapt an existing speaking rate-dependent hierarchical prosodic model (SR-HPM) of an SR-controlled Mandarin TTS system to new speaker's data for realizing a new voice is proposed. Two main problems are addressed: data sparseness for few adaptation utterances existing only in a small range of normal speaking rate(More)
The human larynx is an important organ for voice production and respiratory mechanisms. The vocal cord is approximated for voice production and open for breathing. The videolaryngoscope is widely used for vocal cord examination. At present, physicians usually diagnose vocal cord diseases by manually selecting the image of the vocal cord opening to the(More)
This study used the actual laryngeal video stroboscope videos taken by physicians in clinical practice as the samples for experimental analysis. The samples were dynamic vocal fold videos. Image processing technology was used to automatically capture the image of the largest glottal area from the video to obtain the physiological data of the vocal folds. In(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays a pivotal role in angiogenesis. Previous studies focused on transcriptional regulation modulated by proximal upstream cis-regulatory elements (CREs) of the human vegfa promoter. However, we hypothesized that distal upstream CREs may also be involved in controlling vegfa transcription. In this study, we found(More)
In this paper, we present an on-line learning neuro-fuzzy system which was inspired by parts of the mechanisms in immune systems. It illustrates how an on-line learning neuro-fuzzy system can capture the basic elements of the immune system and exhibit some of its appealing properties. During the learning procedure, a neuro-fuzzy system can be incrementally(More)
—Scalable video coding (SVC) achieves layered coding structure with adaptive inter-layer prediction which causes high computational complexity. To decrease the computational complexity of SVC, we present a fast algorithm to speed up the inter-mode decision process for SVC. The proposed algorithm early terminates inter-mode decision in the enhancement layer(More)
