1 We report experience in applying techniques for natural language processing to algorithmically generating test items for both reading and listening cloze items. We propose a word sense disambiguation-based method for locating sentences in which designated words carry specific senses, and apply a collocation-based method for selecting distractors that are(More)
Traffic sign recognition is a difficult task if we aim at detecting and recognizing signs in images captured from unfavorable environments. Complex background, weather, shadow, and other lighting-related problems may make it difficult to detect and recognize signs in the rural as well as the urban areas. We employ discrete cosine transform and singular(More)
Methylglyoxal is a reactive dicarbonyl compound generated as an intermediate of glycolysis during the physical glycation in the diabetic condition. It is considered to be a potent precursor of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) formation. Methylglyoxal itself and methylglyoxal-derived AGEs have been commonly implicated in the development of diabetic(More)
Location-based services are regarded as a killer application of mobile networks. Among all RF-based localization techniques, the pattern-matching scheme is probably the most widely accepted approach. A key factor to its success is the accuracy concern and the calibration efforts to collect its training data. In this paper, we propose a community-based(More)
Among all the wireless localization techniques, the Wi-Fi pattern-matching scheme is one of the most widely used approaches, which estimates the user's location by comparing his/her device's received signal strength (RSS) against a pre-trained radio map on the fly. The pattern-matching solutions have an inherent drawback: the expensive calibration operation(More)
We propose a framework for management of route information and provision of travel information in the context of public transportation systems. The information-management component combines information collected from diverse sources, and processes the information for the interests of service providers and travelers. Travelers may place queries via different(More)
