We propose a new feature selection strategy based on rough sets and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). Rough sets has been used as a feature selection method with much success, but current hill-climbing rough set approaches to feature selection are inadequate at finding optimal reductions as no perfect heuristic can guarantee optimality. On the other hand,(More)
Most of the existing color image watermarking schemes were designed to mark the image luminance component only, which have some disadvantages: (i) they are sensitive to color attacks because of ignoring the correlation between different color channels, (ii) they are always not robust to geometric distortions for neglecting the watermark desynchronization.(More)
Very limited information is available concerning the epidemiology of T. gondii infection in pregnant women in eastern China. Therefore, a case-control study was conducted to estimate the seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis in this population group and to identify risk factors and possible routes of contamination. Serum samples were collected from 965 pregnant(More)
This paper proposes an annealed particle swarm optimization based particle filter algorithm for articulated 3D human body tracking. In our algorithm, a sampling co-variance and an annealing factor are incorporated into the velocity updating equation of particle swarm optimization (PSO). The sampling covariance and the annealing factor are initiated with(More)
