Progressive image transmission (PIT) transmits the most significant portion of a picture, followed by its less important portions. The mechanism call be used in Web-based applications while users are browsing images. However, most PIT methods use the same pixel interpolation scheme for the entire picture, without considering the differences among image(More)
The popularization of digital technology has made shooting digital photos and using related applications a part of daily life. However, the use of flash, to compensate for low atmospheric lighting, often leads to overexposure or glossy reflections. This study proposes an auto-detection and inpainting technique to correct overexposed faces in digital(More)
Digital image inpainting is a technique that can repair a portion of damaged or removed image by means of automatic mechanisms. Image inpainting tools can be applied to repairing damaged historical documents. In this paper, we propose an adaptive mechanism, which is based on a color interpolation mechanism. The repairing procedure checks the surrounding(More)
Video inpainting uses spatial-temporal information to repair defects such as spikes and lines on aged films. We propose a series of new algorithms based on adjustable thresholds to repair different varieties of aged films. The main contribution is an automatic spike and dirt detection mechanism. We prove that if appropriate threshold is once decided by the(More)
BACKGROUND Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBPs) are antioxidant and neuroprotective derivative from Wolfberry. However, whether LBP has a protective effect in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)-induced hepatic injury is still unknown. OBJECTIVE We aimed to study the possible hepatoprotective effects and mechanisms of LBP on a diet-induced NASH rat(More)
We present a hyper-interaction platform which integrates several newly developed techniques, including motion classification, a motion reaction control mechanism and a high precision 3-D model of the International Space Station. The goal is to build an interaction platform for trainers to navigate in a virtual reality. The platform can be applied to(More)
Taurine is known to play a major role in volume regulation in astrocytic swelling associated with stroke and brain trauma. Apart from brain edema, the severity of brain injury is related to the levels of inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha). TNFalpha had been shown to be closely associated with brain edema formation since(More)
