BACKGROUND Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an important cause of visual impairment in elderly people. AMD is a multifactorial disease in which both environmental and genetic factors have been implicated. Various single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been found to be associated with AMD. AIM This study was aimed to investigate the(More)
We examine the use of Deep Neural Networks (DNN) in extracting Baum-Welch statistics for i-vector-based text-independent speaker recognition. Instead of training the universal background model using the standard EM algorithm, the components are predefined and correspond to the set of triphone states, the posterior occupancy probabilities of which are(More)
The goal of this paper is to permit secure outsourced system evaluation. We propose a method for generating synthetic databases and obfuscating a workload of queries in order to protect the sensitive information present in the database. The synthetic database and workload can be used by a third party to accurately carry out performance tuning, index(More)
Adipose tissue secretes various kinds of adipokines that controls the glucose and lipid metabolism in humans. The abdominal visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) both are associated with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. IL-6 is one of the adipokines, which promotes insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in humans. The(More)
Role of resistin in insulin sensitivity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) is controversial till date. Increased serum resistin levels are associated with MetS and insulin resistance. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between serum resistin levels with markers of the MetS in females. In a cross-sectional study, a total of 170 healthy(More)
Evaluating the performance of database systems is crucial when database vendors or researchers are developing new technologies. But such evaluation tasks rely heavily on actual data and query workloads that are often unavailable to researchers due to privacy restrictions. To overcome this barrier, we propose a framework for the release of a synthetic(More)
Internet-scale Distributed Networks (IDNs) are large distributed systems that comprise hundreds of thousands of servers located in hundreds of data centers around the world. A canonical example of an IDN is a content delivery network (CDN) that delivers content to users from a large global deployment of servers around the world. IDNs consume significant(More)
Internet-scale Distributed Networks (IDNs) are large distributed systems that comprise hundreds of thousands of servers located around the world. IDNs consume significant amounts of energy to power their deployed server infrastructure, and nearly as much energy to cool that infrastructure. We study the potential benefits of using renewable open air cooling(More)
Average consensus is a canonical problem in wireless sensor networks. Wireless communication channels exhibit stochastic data loss due to multiple reasons including fading and interference. This note considers average consensus algorithms executed over communication topologies that vary probabilistically due to such effects. It is known that even in this(More)
