Esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCC) have become a severe threat to health and the current treatments for ESCC are frequently not effective. Recent epidemiological studies suggest that the anti-hyperglycemic agent metformin may reduce the risk of developing cancer, including ESCC, among diabetic patients. However, the antitumor effects of metformin on(More)
For many applications in wireless sensor network (WSN), the gathering of the holistic sensor measurements is difficult due to stringent constraint on network resources, frequent link, indeterminate variations in sensor readings, and node failures. As such, sensory data extraction and prediction technique emerge to exploit the spatio-temporal correlation of(More)
—In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), node mobility causes network topologies to change dynamically over time, which complicated important tasks such as routing. The previous stability-oriented routing algorithms usually focus on how to discover a stable route, but rarely consider the adaptability of constructed route to the change of node's motion. In this(More)
One critical issue for routing in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) is how to select a stable path that can last longer since mobility may cause radio links to break frequently. In this paper, a link stability prediction model is proposed firstly, it uses the relative motion and the distance between two neighbor nodes to evaluate the mean link duration, which(More)
Data compression ideas can be extended to assess the data quality across multiple sensors to manage the network of sensors to optimize the location accuracy subject to communication constraints. From an unconstrained-resources viewpoint it is desirable to use the complete set of deployed sensors; however, that generally results in an excessive data volume.(More)
Mobility is a prominent characteristic of MANETs, and is the main factor affecting topology change and route invalidation, which finally leads to increase the design difficulty of effective routing protocol. In this paper, we have studied the impacts of mobility on routing protocol performance of MANETs with simulation, which uses ns-2 as the simulation(More)
Image completion technique is widely used in image processing applications such as textural recovery, object removal, image edit, etc. When filling in the missing areas of an image, it is often a challenge to keep local consistency of image structures while avoiding ambiguity and visual artifacts. To tackle with this problem, we propose a robust(More)
