Visual attention has long been an important topic in psychology and cognitive science. Recently, results from visual attention research (Haber et al. 2001; Myszkowski et al. 2001) are being adopted by computer graphics research. Due to speed limitations, there has been a movement to use a perception-based rendering approach where the rendering process(More)
We describe about the system description of the PSNUS team for the SemEval-2007 Web People Search Task. The system is based on the clustering of the web pages by using a variety of features extracted and generated from the data provided. This system achieves F α=0.5 = 0.75 and F α=0.2 = 0.78 for the final test data set of the task.
—In computational electromagnetics, the second-kind Fredholm integral equations are known to have very fast iterative convergence but rather poor solution accuracy compared with the first-kind Fredholm integral equations. The error source of the second-kind integral equations can mainly be attributed to the dis-cretization error of the identity operators.(More)
Traditionally, record linkage algorithms have played an important role in maintaining digital libraries - i.e., identifying matching citations or authors for consolidation in updating or integrating digital libraries. As such, a variety of record linkage algorithms have been developed and deployed successfully. Often, however, existing solutions have a set(More)
Ranking of publication venues is often closely related with important issues such as evaluating the contributions of individual scholars/research groups, or subscription decision making. The development of large-scale digital libraries and the availability of various meta data provide the possibility of building new measures more efficiently and accurately.(More)
Herpesviruses typically establish latent infection in their hosts. The cell(s) responsible for harboring latent virus, in most cases, is not known. Using immunofluorescence and PCR-in situ hybridization (PISH), a technique which combines the sensitivity of PCR with the localization and specificity of in situ hybridization, we provide the first direct(More)
Targeted therapies require cellular protein expression that meets specific requirements that will maximize effectiveness, minimize off-target toxicities, and provide an opportunity for a therapeutic effect. The receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptors (ROR) are possible targets for therapy that may meet such requirements. RORs are transmembrane(More)
The automation of extracting chemical names from text has significant value to biomedical and life science research. A major barrier in this task is the difficulty of getting a sizable and good quality data to train a reliable entity extraction model. Another difficulty is the selection of informative features of chemical names, since comprehensive domain(More)
Biologically active membrane gangliosides, expressed and released by many human tumors, are hypothesized to significantly impact tumor progression. Lack of a model of complete and specific tumor ganglioside depletion in vivo, however, has hampered elucidation of their role. Here, we report the creation of a novel, stable, genetically induced tumor cell(More)
Survivability modeling and evaluation have gained increasing importance. Most existing models assume that the distributions for transitions between states are exponential. However, this assumption does not hold in many real cases. To address this problem, we propose a novel semi-Markov survivability evaluation model, which allows the transitions between(More)
