BACKGROUND Prediction of the species of pathogen among patients with sepsis within hours would be helpful in accelerating proper treatment. As a potential method of shortening the time to identification, this study considered the usefulness of measuring procalcitonin (PCT) to predict blood culture (BC) results. METHODS The authors retrospectively analyzed(More)
Dimension reduction is a crucial technique in machine learning and data mining, which is widely used in areas of medicine, bioinformatics and genetics. In this paper, we propose a two-stage local dimension reduction approach for classification on microarray data. In first stage, a new L1-regularized feature selection method is defined to remove irrelevant(More)
Inferring the topology of gene regulatory networks (GRNs) from microarray gene expression data has many potential applications, such as identifying candidate drug targets and providing valuable insights into the biological processes. It remains a challenge due to the fact that the data is noisy and high dimensional, and there exists a large number of(More)
Titanium and its alloys have become the most attractive implant materials due to their high corrosion resistance, excellent biocompatibility and relatively low elastic modulus. However, the current Ti materials used for implant applications exhibit much higher Young's modulus (50 ~ 120 GPa) than human bone (~30 GPa). This large mismatch in the elastic(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel dimension reduction algorithm that implements an information fusion of Centroid-based feature selection and partial least squares (PLS) based feature extraction. This paper focuses on mining the potential information hidden in multiclass microarray data and interpreting the results provided by the potential information.(More)
In the past years, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), for example, Adaptive Cruise Control system (ACC), Emergency Brake Assist system (AEB) etc, have been developed to improve vehicle control and driving safety. With such systems, traffic accidents caused by driver inattention and lack of driving experiences could be avoid or reduced. At last, the(More)
