—As a new area of machine learning research, the deep learning algorithm has attracted a lot of attention from the research community. It may bring human beings to a higher cognitive level of data. Its unsupervised pre-training step allows us to find high-dimensional representations or abstract features which work much better than the principal component(More)
—Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been proved to be successfully used in a variety of pattern recognition and data mining applications. However, training ANNs on large scale datasets are both data-intensive and computation-intensive. Therefore, large scale ANNs are used with reservation for their time-consuming training to get high precision. In this(More)
The social connections among users have significant impacts on UGC video systems. The goal of this paper is to study the social connectivity of such systems by measuring YouKu, the most popular UGC video system in China. We have collected 627 thousand user profiles, 3 million social connections and 13.6 million videos' information. The analysis results have(More)
There have been many attempts to design brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) for wheelchair control based on steady state visual evoked potential (SSVEP), event-related desynchronization/synchronization (ERD/ERS) during motor imagery (MI) tasks, P300 evoked potential, and some hybrid signals. However, those BCI systems cannot implement the wheelchair navigation(More)
—The frequent itemset mining (FIM) is one of the most important techniques to extract knowledge from data in many real-world applications. The Apriori algorithm is the widely-used algorithm for mining frequent itemsets from a transactional dataset. However, the FIM process is both data-intensive and computing-intensive. On one side, large scale data sets(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Variants of UCP2 and UCP3 genes have been reported to be associated with obesity, but the available data on the relationship are inconsistent. A meta-analysis was performed to determine whether there are any associations between the UCP2 -866G/A, Ala55Val, and UCP3 -55C/T polymorphisms and obesity susceptibility. METHODS The PubMed,(More)
