In this paper, we describe our work in the fourth Emotion Recognition in the Wild (EmotiW 2016) Challenge. For video based emotion recognition sub-challenge, we extract acoustic features, LBPTOP, Dense SIFT and CNN-LSTM features to recognize the emotions of film characters. For group level emotion recognition sub-challenge, we use LSTM and GEM model. We(More)
PURPOSE Seven genes involved in precursor mRNA (pre-mRNA) splicing have been implicated in autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP). We sought to detect mutations in all seven genes in Chinese families with RP, to characterize the relevant phenotypes, and to evaluate the prevalence of mutations in splicing genes in patients with adRP. METHODS Six(More)
IMPORTANCE Inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) are a group of retinal degenerative diseases presenting genetic and clinical heterogeneities, which have challenged the genetic and clinical diagnoses of IRDs. Genetic evaluations of patients with IRD might result in better clinical assessments and better management of patients. OBJECTIVE To determine the(More)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of severe vision loss in elderly people. Diabetes mellitus is a common endocrine disorder with serious consequences, and diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the main ophthalmic complication. DR and AMD are different diseases and we seek to explore the relationship between diabetes and AMD. MEDLINE, EMBASE,(More)
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) shows progressive loss of photoreceptors involved with heterogeneous genetic background. Here, by exome sequencing and linkage analysis on a Chinese family with autosomal dominant RP, we identified a putative pathogenic variant, p.Gly97Arg, in the gene SPP2, of which expression was detected in multiple tissues including retina. The(More)
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the Japanese snapping shrimp Alpheus japonicus Miers (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) is presented here. A comparative analysis based on the currently available mitochondrial genomic data revealed many previously unknown characteristics of the mitochondrial genomes of caridean shrimps. The A. japonicus(More)
The development and validation of multi-axial creep damage constitutive equations for A369 FP91 steel at 625°C was presented. Three aspects of research work were reported: 1) the development of a new set of creep damage constitutive equations based on Xu's formulation [1], 2) the validation on this newly developed and an existing KRH type of(More)
This paper presents a review of creep deformation and rupture mechanisms of low Cr-Mo alloy for the development of its creep damage constitutive equations under lower stress. The most popular Kachanov-Robatnov-Hayhurst (KRH) formulation was not necessarily developed and calibrated for low stress and cannot depict the creep strain accurately under(More)
SVM may have great difficulty in its realization, even can not work properly because of the tremendous increase of compute time and memory for large-scale training set. A new fast learning algorithm for large-scale SVM is proposed under the condition of sample aliasing. The aliasing sample points which are not the same class are eliminated first and then(More)
This paper presents a review of creep cavitation and rupture of low Cr alloy and its weldment, particular in the heat-affected zone (HAZ). Creep damage is one of the serious problems for the high temperature industry. One of the computational approaches is continuum damage mechanics which has been developed and applied complementary to the experimental(More)
