—State-of-the-art near-duplicate image search systems mostly build on the bag-of-local features (BOF) representation. While favorable for simplicity and scalability, these systems have three shortcomings: 1) high time complexity of the local feature detection; 2) discriminability reduction of local descriptors due to BOF quantization; and 3) neglect of the(More)
PURPOSE Epidemiological studies suggest that dietary intake of lutein and zeaxanthin is inversely related to the risk for senile cataract. The objectives of this work were to investigate the mechanisms by which these nutrients provide anti-cataract effects. We evaluated their modulation of oxidative damage in human lens epithelial cells (HLEC) and their(More)
To take full advantage of the powerful computing capability of graphics processing units (GPU) to speed up local feature detection, we present a novel GPU-based scale invariant interest point detector, coined Harris-Hessian(H-H). H-H detects Harris points in low scale and refines their location and scale in higher scale-space with the determinant of Hessian(More)
We present PornProbe, a pornography detection system that detects pornographic contents in videos. To build such a detection system, we leverage a large scale training data set with 65,827 positive training image samples out of a total of 420,615 training samples, and a novel detection scheme based on hierarchical LDA-SVM. The system combines the(More)
Molecular mechanisms underlying the cold-associated high cardiovascular risk remain unknown. Here, we show that the cold-triggered food-intake-independent lipolysis significantly increased plasma levels of small low-density lipoprotein (LDL) remnants, leading to accelerated development of atherosclerotic lesions in mice. In two genetic mouse knockout models(More)
The proliferation and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells are the major pathological changes in development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), which leads to severe visual impairment. Histone deacetylases (HDACs)-mediated epigenetic mechanisms play important roles in controlling various physiological and(More)
For TRECVID 2008 concept detection task, we principally focus on: (1) Early fusion of texture, edge and color features TECM, abbreviation of the combined TF*IDF weights based on SIFT features, Edge Histogram, and Color Moments. (2) To improve the training efficiency and explore the knowledge between concepts or hidden sub-domains more easily and(More)

The human lens is comprised largely of crystallin proteins assembled into a highly ordered, interactive macro-structure essential for lens transparency and refractive index. Any disruption of intra- or inter-protein interactions will alter this delicate structure, exposing hydrophobic surfaces, with consequent protein aggregation and cataract formation.(More)
Congenital cataract (CC) is the primary cause of treatable childhood blindness. Population-based assessments of prevalence and surgery age of CC, which are critical for improving management strategies, have been unavailable in China until now. We conducted a hospital-based, cross-sectional study of the hospital charts of CC patients younger than 18 years(More)
