BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short non-coding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression by targeting mRNAs. Recently, miRNAs have been shown to play important roles in the etiology of various diseases. However, little is known about their roles in the development of osteoporosis. Circulating monocytes are osteoclast precursors that also(More)
— Classification of large amount of images calls for diverse types of features, but employing all possible feature types will create unnecessary computation burden, and may result in reduced classification accuracy. Selecting feature vectors individually is not a feasible solution in this scenario due to the high amount of feature vectors needed for(More)
—The kernel least mean square (KLMS) algorithm is an efficient non-linear adaptive filter that operates in the reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS). In a realistic application of system identification or prediction, there are usually multiple inputs that demands multiple kernels or kernel parameters. This paper proposes to use a tensor product kernel for(More)
This paper proposes a way of enhancing shape recognition through point set registration. Firstly, a modified version of shape context (SC) is developed, which is invariant to rigid transformation and flipping. With the point correspondence obtained by the modified SC, an affine transformation based on the maximum correntropy criterion (MCC) is performed on(More)
