Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) enables mobile devices to use resource providers other than mobile devices themselves to host the execution of mobile applications. Recent research shows that it is more suitable for mobile devices to offload complex real-time applications to the cloud formed by nearby mobile devices, referred to as the local mobile cloud,(More)
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a common and serious urinary disease in children. It usually causes renal scar, urinary tract infection, and chronic renal failure.

Fair and insightful comparisons of these available open cloud platforms, however, can still be a challenging task, mainly due to lack of an appropriate evaluation methodology. In this paper, we thus attempt to perform a quantitative(More)
—This paper explores how to improve BOW model for human action recognition in real environment. Traditional codebook learning uses single appearance based local features, thus spatial and temporal correlations of local features are ignored. This leads to a considerable amount of mismatch between sample vectors and noisy visual words resulted from background(More)
