—The Knowledge Grid needs to operate with a scalable platform to provide large-scale intelligent services. A key function of such a platform is to efficiently support various complex queries in a dynamic large-scale network environment. This paper proposes a platform to support index-based path queries by incorporating a semantic overlay with an underlying(More)
—This paper presents Harmonic Ring (HRing), a structured peer-to-peer (P2P) overlay where long links are built along the ring with decreasing probabilities coinciding with the Harmonic Series. HRing constructs routing tables based on the distance between node positions instead of node IDs in order to eliminate the effect of node ID distribution on the long(More)
To improve search efficiency and reduce unnecessary traffic in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks, this paper proposes a trust-based probabilistic search algorithm, called preferential walk (P-Walk). Every peer ranks its neighbors according to searching experience. The highly ranked neighbors have higher probabilities to be queried. Simulation results show that(More)

OBJECTIVE Increased oxidative stress (OS) and impaired anti-OS defenses are important in the development and persistence of insulin resistance (IR). Several anti-inflammatory and cell-protective mechanisms, including advanced glycation end product (AGE) receptor-1 (AGER1) and sirtuin (silent mating-type information regulation 2 homolog) 1 (SIRT1) are(More)
Recent studies suggest that Internet gaming addiction (IGA) is an impulse disorder, or is at least related to impulse control disorders. In the present study, we hypothesized that different facets of trait impulsivity may be specifically linked to the brain regions with impaired impulse inhibition function in IGA adolescents. Seventeen adolescents with IGA(More)
BACKGROUND Homeodomain-leucine zipper (HD-Zip) proteins, a group of homeobox transcription factors, participate in various aspects of normal plant growth and developmental processes as well as environmental responses. To date, no overall analysis or expression profiling of the HD-Zip gene family in soybean (Glycine max) has been reported. METHODS AND(More)
Face verification is the task of determining by analyzing face images, whether a person is who he/she claims to be. It is a very challenge problem, due to large variations in lighting, background, expression, hairstyle and occlusion. The crucial problem is to compute the similarity of two face vectors. Metric learning has provides a viable solution to this(More)
