The user submits a video of the unknown sign as a query, and the system retrieves the most similar signs from a database of sign videos. The user then reviews the retrieved videos to identify the video displaying the sign of interest. Hands are(More)
MTHFR C677T and A1298C polymorphisms have been reported to be associated with the risk of myocardial infarction (MI), although the results of previous studies have been inconsistent. The aim of this study was to explore whether these polymorphisms play a role in the genetic susceptibility to MI. A comprehensive search of MEDLINE and EMBASE databases was(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE Vaspin is a recently identified adipokine related to obesity and insulin sensitivity. The precise mechanism of vaspin in the body is not well known, and its function in resting metabolic rate (RMR) is even less understood. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to investigate the effect of circulating vaspin on RMR in obese people.(More)
— In this paper, we present a distributed resource allocation algorithm for cellular OFDMA networks by adopting a Reinforcement Learning (RL) approach. We use an RL method which employ Growing Self Organizing Maps to deal with the huge and continuous problem space. The goal of the algorithm is to maximize the network throughput in a fair manner. Indeed, the(More)
OBJECTIVE Increasing evidence has suggested an association between sleep duration and osteoporosis risk, although the results of previous studies have been inconsistent. To our knowledge, this is the first meta-analysis of the literature and quantitative estimates of the association between sleep duration and risk of osteoporosis in population-based studies(More)
