The skeleton is essential for general shape representation. The commonly required properties of a skeletonization algorithm are that the extracted skeleton should be accurate; robust to noise, position and rotation; able to reconstruct the original object; and able to produce a connected skeleton in order to preserve its topological and hierarchical(More)
Block-based motion estimation and compensation are the most popular techniques for video coding. However, as the shape and the structure of an object in a picture are arbitrary, the performance of such conventional block-based methods may not be satisfactory. In this paper, a very low bit-rate video coding algorithm that focuses on moving regions is(More)
The DNA microarray technology allows the measurement of expression levels of thousands of genes under tens/hundreds of different conditions. In microarray data, genes with similar functions usually co-express under certain conditions only [1]. Thus, biclustering which clusters genes and conditions simultaneously is preferred over the traditional clustering(More)
UNLABELLED BiVisu is an open-source software tool for detecting and visualizing biclusters embedded in a gene expression matrix. Through the use of appropriate coherence relations, BiVisu can detect constant, constant-row, constant-column, additive-related as well as multiplicative-related biclusters. The biclustering results are then visualized under a 2D(More)
Soft-decision adaptive interpolation (SAI) provides a powerful framework for image interpolation. The robustness of SAI can be further improved by using weighted least-squares estimation, instead of least-squares estimation in both of the parameter estimation and data estimation steps. To address the mismatch issue of “geometric duality”(More)
