Relationships between concepts account for a large proportion of semantic knowledge. We present a nonpara-metric Bayesian model that discovers systems of related concepts. Given data involving several sets of entities, our model discovers the kinds of entities in each set and the relations between kinds that are possible or likely. We apply our approach to(More)
In this paper, we propose a new Bayesian model for fully unsupervised word seg-mentation and an efficient blocked Gibbs sampler combined with dynamic programming for inference. Our model is a nested hierarchical Pitman-Yor language model, where Pitman-Yor spelling model is embedded in the word model. We confirmed that it significantly outperforms previous(More)
Adult-onset autosomal dominant leukodystrophy (ADLD) is a slowly progressive neurological disorder characterized by symmetrical widespread myelin loss in the central nervous system, with a phenotype similar to chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. In this study, we identify a genomic duplication that causes ADLD. Affected individuals carry an extra copy(More)
In a previous paper, a simple genetic algorithm (GA) was developed for finding (approximately) the minimum makespan of the n-job, m-machine permutation flowshop sequencing problem (PFSP). The performance of the algorithm was comparable to that of a naive neighborhood search technique and a proven simulated annealing algorithm. However, recent results have(More)
We propose a visualization method based on a topic model for discrete data such as documents. Unlike conventional visualization methods based on pairwise distances such as multi-dimensional scaling, we consider a mapping from the visualization space into the space of documents as a generative process of documents. In the model, both documents and topics are(More)
We propose a new topic model for tracking time-varying consumer purchase behavior, in which consumer interests and item trends change over time. The proposed model can adaptively track changes in interests and trends based on current purchase logs and previously estimated interests and trends. The online nature of the proposed method means we do not need to(More)
Two thermophilic, Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, multicellular filamentous micro-organisms were isolated from thermophilic granular sludge in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor treating fried soybean-curd manufacturing waste water (strain UNI-1(T)) and from a hot spring sulfur-turf in Japan (strain STL-6-O1(T)). The filaments were longer than 100(More)
The induction of thymic lymphomas by whole-body X irradiation with four doses of 1.8 Gy (total dose: 7.2 Gy) in C57BL/6 mice was suppressed from a high frequency (90%) to 63% by preirradiation with 0.075 Gy X rays given 6 h before each 1.8-Gy irradiation. This level was further suppressed to 43% by continuous whole-body irradiation with 137Cs gamma rays at(More)
