—We propose a statistical framework for high-level feature extraction that uses SIFT Gaussian mixture models (GMMs) and audio models. SIFT features were extracted from all the image frames and modeled by a GMM. In addition, we used mel-frequency cepstral coefficients and ergodic hidden Markov models to detect high-level features in audio streams. The best(More)
A rice cDNA, OsDEP1, encoding a highly cysteine (Cys)-rich G protein γ subunit, was initially identified as it conferred cadmium (Cd) tolerance on yeast cells. Of the 426 aa constituting OsDEP1, 120 are Cys residues (28.2%), of which 88 are clustered in the C-terminal half region (aa 170-426). To evaluate the independent effects of these two regions, two(More)
We carried out a retrospective analysis of 40 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who received sitagliptin. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and fasting plasma glucose were significantly decreased from 7.53 ± 0.65% and 155.2 ± 29.4 mg/dL at baseline to 6.80 ± 0.60% (P < 0.01) and 131.2 ± 22.3 mg/dL (P < 0.01) at week 20, respectively. β-Cell function(More)
1 Overview We propose a statistical framework for high-level feature (HLF) extraction, which employs scale-invariant feature transform Gaussian mixture models (SIFT GMMs), acoustic features, and maximal figure-of-merit (MFoM). The MeanInfAP of our best run was 0.1679. Our team placed 11th after all of the runs and 4th among all participating teams. Notably,(More)
We analyzed the changes of glycemic control over 12 months and the factors influencing blood glucose in 162 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes having inadequate glycemic control despite sulfonylurea-based therapy who received add-on sitagliptin. Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) decreased significantly after 4 weeks of treatment, and this improvement was(More)
The scattering coefficient is one of the most fundamental parameters by which to quantify the scattering intensity for waves as a function of scattering angle and wave frequency. This study presents a derivation of the scattering coefficient for linear long-wave tsunami equations in randomly fluctuating sea-bottom topography using the first-order Born(More)
[1] High-frequency S wave seismogram envelopes are broadened with increasing travel distance due to diffraction and scattering. The basic mechanism of the broadening has been studied on the basis of the scattering theory with the parabolic approximation for the scalar wave equation in random media. However, conventional models are not realistic enough since(More)
