The rapid advancement of robotics technology in recent years has pushed the development of a distinctive field of robotic applications, namely robotic exoskeletons. Because of the aging population, more people are suffering from neurological disorders such as stroke, central nervous system disorder, and spinal cord injury. As manual therapy seems to be(More)
Recent progress has been made in using attention based encoder-decoder framework for video captioning. However, most existing decoders apply the attention mechanism to every generated word including both visual words (e.g., ”gun” and ”shooting”) and non-visual words (e.g. ”the”, ”a”). However, these non-visual words can be easily predicted using natural(More)
Series elastic actuator (SEA) has been widely used in rehabilitation robotics, where human-robot interaction is required. Due to its intrinsic compliance, SEA can improve the usage of power for its motor, which leads to a compact and lightweight SEA design. The aim of this paper is to reduce the energy consumption and the power requirements of the motor of(More)
AIM There have been few studies on the relationships of the dietary polyunsaturated to saturated fatty acid ratio (P/S) to cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic syndrome. We hypothesized that there would be favorable relationships. METHODS Metabolic cardiovascular risk factors from dietary nutrient intake were investigated in 1,004 men and women aged(More)
Recent progress in using Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) for image description has motivated the exploration of their applications for automatically describing video content with natural language sentences. By taking a video as a sequence of features, LSTM model is trained on video-sentence pairs to learn association of a video to a sentence. However, most(More)
This paper presents a novel compliant differential (CD) Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuator with improved performance compared to traditional SMA actuators. This actuator is composed of two antagonistic SMA wires and a mechanical joint coupled with a torsion spring. The torsion spring is employed to reduce the total stiffness of SMA actuator and improve the(More)
We present revised properties for 196,468 stars observed by the NASA Kepler mission and used in the analysis of Quarter 1–16 (Q1–Q16) data to detect and characterize transiting planets. The catalog is based on a compilation of literature values for atmospheric properties (temperature, surface gravity, and metallicity) derived from different observational(More)
