In computer vision, image datasets used for classification are naturally associated with multiple labels and comprised of multiple views, because each image may contain several objects (e.g., pedestrian, bicycle, and tree) and is properly characterized by multiple visual features (e.g., color, texture, and shape). Currently, available tools ignore either(More)
Images are usually associated with multiple labels and comprised of multiple views, due to each image containing several objects (e.g. a pedestrian, bicycle and tree) and multiple visual features (e.g. color, texture and shape). Currently available tools tend to use either labels or features for classification, but both are necessary to describe the image(More)
Wheat powdery mildew, caused by the fungal pathogen Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici (Bgt), is a destructive wheat disease worldwide. The key issue for the disease forecast is to timely and accurately estimate and quantify the latent infection levels in volunteer seedlings where the pathogen over-winters or over-summers to serve as sources of initial(More)
The POEMS project is creating an environment for end-to-end performance modeling of complex parallel and distributed systems, spanning the domains of application software, runtime and operating system software, and hardware architecture. To enable end-to-end modeling of large-scale applications and systems, the POEMS framework is designed to compose models(More)
It is a significant challenge to classify images with multiple labels by using only a small number of labeled samples. One option is to learn a binary classifier for each label and use manifold regularization to improve the classification performance by exploring the underlying geometric structure of the data distribution. However, such an approach does not(More)
We prove several basic properties for difference ascending chains including a necessary and sufficient condition for an ascending chain to be the characteristic set of its saturation ideal and a necessary and sufficient condition for an ascending chain to be the characteristic set of a reflexive prime ideal. Based on these properties, we propose an(More)
In this paper, we characterize application performunce with a " memory-centric " view. Using a simple strategy and performance data measured on actual mclchines, we model the performance of a simple memory hierarchy and infer the contribution of each level in the memory system to an application's overall cycles per instruction (cpi). Included are results(More)
Executive summary The 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change has been formed to map out the impacts of climate change, and the necessary policy responses, in order to ensure the highest attainable standards of health for populations worldwide. This Commission is multi­ disciplinary and international in nature, with strong collabor ation between(More)
