We describe a novel and effective video enhancement algorithm for low lighting video. The algorithm works by first inverting the input low-lighting video and then applying an image de-haze algorithm on the inverted input. To facilitate faster computation and improve temporal consistency, correlations between temporally neighboring frames are utilized.(More)
Given their critical role as gateways to Web content, the search results a Web search engine provides to its users have an out-sized impact on the way each user views the Web. Previous studies have shown that popular Web search engines like Google employ sophisticated personalization engines that can occasionally provide dramatically inconsistent views of(More)
Name-based route lookup is a key function for Named Data Networking (NDN). The NDN names are hierarchical and have variable and unbounded lengths, which are much longer than IPv4/6 address, making fast name lookup a challenging issue. In this paper, we propose an effective Name Component Encoding (NCE) solution with the following two techniques: (1) A code(More)
This paper studies the name lookup issue with longest prefix matching, which is widely used in URL filtering, content routing/switching, etc. Recently Content-Centric Networking (CCN) has been proposed as a clean slate future Internet architecture to naturally fit the content-centric property of today's Internet usage: instead of addressing end hosts, the(More)
Promoter hypermethylation, a widely studied epigenetic event known to influence gene expression levels, has been proposed as a potential biomarker in multiple types of cancer. Clinical diagnostic biomarkers are needed for reliable prediction of bladder cancer recurrence. In this paper, DNA promoter methylation of five C-terminal Ras-association family(More)
The greening of the Internet has become an important research issue due to the huge energy consumption of the Internet. In this paper, we explore network-level power saving mechanisms in the context of virtual local area networks (VLANs) given their importance and prevalence in enterprise, campus and Data Center Networks (DCNs). After investigating the(More)
This letter is concerned with source localization based on time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) measurements from spatially separated sensors in a wireless sensor network (WSN). Most of the existing works adopt a centralized sensor pairing strategy, where one sensor node is chosen as the common reference. However, due to the bandwidth and power constraints of(More)
Quadricuspid aortic valve is a rare congenital malformation of the aortic valve. Its diagnosis is often missed even with the use of transthoracic echocardiogram. Many of these patients progress to aortic incompetence later in life, hence requiring surgical intervention. In the case described in this report, a 61-year-old woman is presented with the features(More)
A sliding mode control law is presented for designing a path following controller that forces an underactuated surface vessel to follow a reference path. The reference path can be a prescribed path or one generated by a virtual vessel. The control law is developed by using Lyapunov direct method and sliding mode control. According to that the sway axis of(More)
