The problem of anomaly detection has been studied for a long time. In short, anomalies are abnormal or unlikely things. In financial networks, thieves and illegal activities are often anomalous in nature. Members of a network want to detect anomalies as soon as possible to prevent them from harming the network's community and integrity. Many Machine(More)
The traditional theory of the just war comprises two sets of principles, one governing the resort to war (jus ad bellum) and the other governing the conduct of war (jus in bello). The two sets of principles are regarded, in Michael Walzer's words, as " logically independent. It is perfectly possible for a just war to be fought unjustly and for an unjust war(More)
This paper proposes an improved wavelet-based method for the delineation of T wave in the electrocardiogram by using multiscale dif-operator (MDO). MDO was employed to automatically categorize the T wave into one of the three categories of T wave morphologies and to improve the precision of T wave delineation for each category. The new algorithm was(More)
Within a …eld experiment, I present a treatment group with reductions in information, administrative, stigma and procrastination costs associated with the Advance EITC. The treatment only increases Advance participation from 0.3 to 1.2 percent. Another treatment simultaneously encourages 401(k) savings, increasing 401(k) participation from 46 to 50 percent.(More)
This paper reports on the design, development and evaluation of a bilingual telephone-based spoken language system for foreign exchange inquiries-the CU FOREX system. The telephone-based system supports Cantonese and English in a single spoken language interface to access real-time foreign exchange information. The specific domain covers information on the(More)
This paper reports on our research and development effort in human-computer spoken language interfaces, capable of processing English and Chinese, including two dialects for Chinese (Cantonese and Putonghua). This is the language environment in Hong Kong, and in order to develop human-computer spoken language interfaces that can be used by almost(More)
AbstTact-Financial markets data is very noise and non-stationary which makes modeling through machine learning from historical information a challenging problem. Our experience indicates that in markets modeling through neural network learning, significant data preprocessing is needed. We have recently proposed a promising multi-component prediction system(More)

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is increasingly being used in adults following failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass, after cardiac surgery or in cases of severe respiratory failure. Knowledge of the different types of ECMO circuits, expected locations of cannulas and imaging appearance of complications is essential for accurate imaging(More)
