The purpose of this paper is to describe the work carried out for the Violent Scenes Detection task at MediaEval 2013 by team TUDCL. Our work is based on the combination of visual , temporal and audio features with machine learning at segment-level. Block-saliency-map based dense trajectory is proposed for visual and temporal features, and MFCC and(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that endurance exercise training would reduce the degree of hyperinflation for a given level of exercise and thereby improve submaximal exercise endurance. METHODS Twenty-four patients with COPD (mean FEV(1), 36.4 +/- 8.5% of predicted [+/- SD]) undertook a high-intensity cycle ergometer exercise training program for 45(More)
OBJECTIVE Musician's dystonia is a task-specific movement disorder that causes twisting or repetitive abnormal finger postures and movements, which tend to occur only while playing musical instruments. Such a movement disorder will probably lead to termination of the careers of affected professional musicians. Most of the currently available treatments have(More)
Map information is important for path planning and selflocalization when mobile robots accomplish autonomous tasks. In unknown environments, they should generate environment maps by themselves. An omnidirectional camera is effective for environment measurement, because it has a wide field of view. There are binocular stereo and motion stereo in traditional(More)
This work proposes a novel system for Violent Scenes Detection, which is based on the combination of visual and audio features with machine learning at segment-level. Multiple Kernel Learning is applied so that multimodality of videos can be maximized. In particular, Mid-level Violence Clustering is proposed in order for mid-level concepts to be implicitly(More)
OBJECTIVE Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is one of the widely used procedures for the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). However, complete pain relief is rarely achieved, and the SCS effect diminishes over time. Recently intrathecal baclofen (ITB) therapy is reported to be a modality for treating fixed dystonia related to CRPS. Other reports(More)
BACKGROUND Hairdresser's dystonia is a rarely reported form of focal hand dystonia, and the clinical course and treatment remains poorly understood. OBJECTIVES The aim of this report was to clarify the impact of thalamotomy on hairdresser's dystonia. METHODS Four consecutive patients with hairdresser's task-specific dystonia evaluated at Tokyo Women's(More)
BACKGROUND Focal hand dystonia in musicians, also known as musician's dystonia, is a task-specific movement disorder characterized by unwanted involuntary muscle contractions occurring only when playing a musical instrument. CASE DESCRIPTION Case 1 was a 50-year-old female professional pianist who underwent staged bilateral ventro-oral (Vo) thalamotomy,(More)
