Antioxidant enzymes played an important role in seed germination. In this study, Quantitative trait locus (QTLs) for activity of antioxidant enzymes (AEAs) and malondialdehyde (MDA) content in different time of seed germination were first identified, and antioxidant enzymes investigated included superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase (POD) and catalase(More)
Rank determination issue is one of the most significant issues in non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) research. However, rank determination problem has not received so much emphasis as sparseness regularization problem. Usually, the rank of base matrix needs to be assumed. In this paper, we propose an unsupervised multi-level non-negative matrix(More)
In this paper we study the problem of content-based image retrieval. In this problem, the most popular performance measure is the top precision measure, and the most important component of a retrieval system is the similarity function used to compare a query image against a database image. However, up to now, there is no existing similarity learning method(More)
The smart-house technology aims to increase home automation and security with reduced energy consumption. A smart house consists of various intelligent sensors and actuators operating on different platforms with conflicting objectives. This paper proposes a multi-agent system (MAS) design framework to achieve smart house automation. The novelties of this(More)
