Existing graph-based ranking methods for keyphrase extraction compute a single importance score for each word via a single random walk. Motivated by the fact that both documents and words can be represented by a mixture of semantic topics, we propose to decompose traditional random walk into multiple random walks specific to various topics. We thus build a(More)
Automatic citation recommendation can be very useful for authoring a paper and is an AI-complete problem due to the challenge of bridging the semantic gap between citation context and the cited paper. It is not always easy for knowledgeable researchers to give an accurate citation context for a cited paper or to find the right paper to cite given context.(More)
When we write or prepare to write a research paper, we always have appropriate references in mind. However, there are most likely references we have missed and should have been read and cited. As such a good citation recommendation system would not only improve our paper but, overall, the efficiency and quality of literature search. Usually, a citation's(More)
BACKGROUND   Being born small for gestational age (SGA) is an indicator of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and later health risks. This study investigated determinants of severe and moderate SGA (respectively, birthweight <3rd percentile and 3rd to <10th percentile for gestational age and sex). METHODS   A total of 2195 term pregnancies from a(More)
We introduce a big data platform that provides various services for harvesting scholarly information and enabling efficient scholarly applications. The core architecture of the platform is built on a secured private cloud, crawls data using a scholarly focused crawler that leverages a dynamic scheduler, processes by utilizing a map reduce based(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess health-related quality of life (HRQL) over 2 years in children 4-12 years old with new-onset epilepsy and risk factors. METHODS Data are from a multicenter prospective cohort study, the Health-Related Quality of Life Study in Children with Epilepsy Study (HERQULES). Parents reported on children's HRQL and family factors and(More)
Citations are important in academic dissemination. To help researchers check the completeness of citations while authoring a paper, we introduce a citation recommendation system called RefSeer. Researchers can use it to find related works to cited while authoring papers. It can also be used by reviewers to check the completeness of a paper's references.(More)
Oriented patterns, e.g. fingerprints, consist of smoothly varying flow-like patterns, together with important singular points (i.e. cores and deltas) where the orientation changes abruptly. Gabor filters and anisotropic diffusion methods have been widely used to enhance oriented patterns. However, none of them can well cope with regions of varying(More)
