Over the last decade, the sural flap has been popularized as a suitable alternative to free-tissue transfer for soft-tissue coverage of the lower extremity. However, flap failure rates may be increased especially if patients have certain risk factors, such as age over 40 years, peripheral artery disease, venous insufficiency, diabetes mellitus, and others.(More)
We introduce a new model to deal with imbalanced data sets for novelty detection problems where the normal class of training data set can be majority or minority class. The key idea is to construct an optimal hypersphere such that the inside margin between the surface of this sphere and the normal data and the outside margin between that surface and the(More)
The Comparative Data Analysis Ontology (CDAO) is an ontology developed, as part of the EvoInfo and EvoIO groups supported by the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, to provide semantic descriptions of data and transformations commonly found in the domain of phylogenetic analysis. The core concepts of the ontology enable the description of phylogenetic(More)
Support Vector Data Description (SVDD) is a well-known supervised learning method for novelty detection purpose. For its classification task, SVDD requires a fully-labeled dataset. Nonetheless, contemporary datasets always consist of a collection of labeled data samples jointly a much larger collection of unlabeled ones. This fact impedes the usage of SVDD(More)
One of the most challenging problems in kernel online learning is to bound the model size. Budgeted kernel online learning addresses this issue by bounding the model size to a predefined budget. However, determining an appropriate value for such predefined budget is arduous. In this paper, we propose the Nonparametric Budgeted Stochastic Gradient Descent(More)
Support vector machine (SVM) has been proven as a powerful tool for solving age and gender classification problems. However, SVM is sensitive to noise and outliers. In this paper we propose a new fuzzy SVM based on an assumption that training data points should not be treated equally to avoid the problem of sensitivity to noise and outliers. This can be(More)
One-class Support Vector Machine (OCSVM) is a well-known method for novelty detection. However, OCSVM regards all negative data samples as a common symbol and thereby not being able to utilize the information carried by them. Furthermore, OCSVM requires a fully labeled data set and cannot work efficiently with data set with both labeled and unlabeled data(More)
Support Vector Data Description (SVDD) is known as one of the best kernel-based methods for one-class classification problems. SVDD requires fully labelled data sets. However, in reality, an abundant amount of data can be easily collected, while the labelling process is often expensive, time-consuming, and error-prone. Therefore, partially labelled data(More)
