A new method of feature extraction, based on feature fusion, is proposed in this paper according to the idea of canonical correlation analysis (CCA). At first, the theory framework of CCA used in pattern recognition and its reasonable description are discussed. The process can be explained as follows: extract two groups of feature vectors with the same(More)
Social network websites, such as Facebook, YouTube, Lastfm etc, have become a popular platform for users to connect with each other and share content or opinions. They provide rich information for us to study the influence of user’s social circle in their decision process. In this paper, we are interested in examining the effectiveness of social network(More)
The ubiquity of mobile devices and the popularity of location-based-services have generated, for the first time, rich datasets of people's location information at a very high fidelity. These location datasets can be used to study people's behavior - for example, social studies have shown that people, who are seen together frequently at the same place and at(More)
With the development of sensor, wireless mobile communication, embedded system and cloud computing, the technologies of Internet of Things have been widely used in logistics, Smart Meter, public security, intelligent building and so on. Because of its huge market prospects, Internet of Things has been paid close attention by several governments all over the(More)
A DNA nanostructure consisting of four four-arm junctions oriented with a square aspect ratio was designed and constructed. Programmable self-assembly of 4 x 4 tiles resulted in two distinct lattice morphologies: uniform-width nanoribbons and two-dimensional nanogrids, which both display periodic square cavities. Periodic protein arrays were achieved by(More)
Multivariate time series data in practical applications, such as health care, geoscience, and biology, are characterized by a variety of missing values. In time series prediction and other related tasks, it has been noted that missing values and their missing patterns are often correlated with the target labels, a.k.a., informative missingness. There is(More)
Transfer learning has been proposed to address the problem of scarcity of labeled data in the target domain by leveraging the data from the source domain. In many real world applications, data is often represented from different perspectives, which correspond to multiple views. For example, a web page can be described by its contents and its associated(More)
Tumblr, as one of the most popular microblogging platforms, has gained momentum recently. It is reported to have 166.4 millions of users and 73.4 billions of posts by January 2014. While many articles about Tumblr have been published in major press, there is not much scholar work so far. In this paper, we provide some pioneer analysis on Tumblr from a(More)
The effects of inoculum and medium composition (i.e. potato dextrose broth as carbon source, soybean peptone, calcium carbonate, and metal ions) on pellet formation of Rhizopus oryzae ATCC 20344 have been studied. Metal ions were found to have a significant negative effect on pellet formation while soybean peptone had a positive effect. In addition, potato(More)
BACKGROUND Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is one of the major causative agents of outbreaks of hand, foot, and mouth disease or herpangina worldwide. This phase 3 trial was designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity of an EV71 vaccine. METHODS We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial in which 10,007 healthy(More)
