In this study, we propose a dynamical memory strategy to efficiently control the size of the support set in a kernel-based Perceptron learning algorithm. The method consists of two operations, namely, the incremental and decremental projections. In the incremental projection, a new presented instance is either added to the support set or discarded depending(More)
In online learning with kernels, it is vital to control the size (budget) of the support set because of the curse of kernelization. In this paper, we propose two simple and effective stochastic strategies for controlling the budget. Both algorithms have an expected regret that is sublinear in the horizon. Experimental results on a number of benchmark data(More)
BACKGROUND Clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is one of the most common types of kidney cancer in adults; however, its causes are not completely understood. The study was designed to filter the key pathways and genes associated with the occurrence or development of ccRCC, acquaint its pathogenesis at gene and pathway level, to provide more theory(More)
Glioma is a highly invasive, rapidly spreading form of brain cancer, while its etiology is largely unknown. A few recently reported studies have been developed using gene expression microarrays of glioma to identify differentially expressed genes from several to hundreds. This study was designed to analyze vast amounts of glioma-related microarray data and(More)
Lung cancer is the most common diagnosed malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Murine double minute 2 (MDM2) SNP309 poly-morphisms have been reported to influence the risk of lung cancer. However, the published studies together with four subsequent meta-analyses have yielded contradictory results. To examine this(More)
Associations between apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene polymorphisms and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) have been reported, but the results from many of these studies are conflicting. To investigate the association between APOE polymorphisms and CJD risk, we performed a meta-analysis. We used odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) to assess the(More)
INTRODUCTION There are no adequate data to determine whether intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is superior to three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the clinical outcomes of IMRT and 3DCRT in the treatment of NSCLC. METHODS No exclusions(More)
