We propose in this paper a new family of kernels to handle time series, notably speech data, within the framework of kernel methods which includes popular algorithms such as the support vector machine. These kernels elaborate on the well known dynamic time warping (DTW) family of distances by considering the same set of elementary operations, namely(More)
The initiation of DNA replication is tightly regulated in eukaryotic cells to ensure that the genome is precisely duplicated once and only once per cell cycle. This is accomplished by controlling the assembly of a prereplicative complex (pre-RC) which involves the sequential binding to replication origins of the origin recognition complex (ORC), Cdc6/Cdc18,(More)
This paper describes an overview of the IR for Spoken Documents Task in NTCIR-9 Workshop. In this task, the spoken term detection (STD) subtask and ad-hoc spoken document retrieval subtask (SDR) are conducted. Both of the subtasks target to search terms, passages and documents included in academic and simulated lectures of the Corpus of Spontaneous(More)
Recently, a series of studies demonstrated false belief understanding in young children through completely nonverbal measures. These studies have revealed that children younger than 3 years of age, who consistently fail the standard verbal false belief test, can anticipate others' actions based on their attributed false beliefs. The current study examined(More)
One significant problem for spoken language systems is how to cope with users' out-of-domain (OOD) utterances which cannot be handled by the back-end application system. In this paper, we propose a novel OOD detection framework, which makes use of the classification confidence scores of multiple topics and applies a linear discriminant model to perform(More)
We present a novel generative model for audio event transcription that recognizes “events” on audio signals including multiple kinds of overlapping sounds. In the proposed model, firstly, the overlapping audio events are modeled based on nonnegative matrix factorization into which Bayesian nonparametric approaches: the Markov Indian buffet(More)
This paper reports our experiments on the concept detection task of TRECVID 2007. In these experiments, we have addressed two approaches which are selecting and fusing features and kernel-based learning method. As for the former one, we investigate the following issues: (i) which features are more appropriate for the concept detection task?, (ii) whether(More)
