—The emerging high efficiency video coding standard (HEVC) adopts the quadtree-structured coding unit (CU). Each CU allows recur-sive splitting into four equal sub-CUs. At each depth level (CU size), the test model of HEVC (HM) performs motion estimation (ME) with different sizes including , , , and. ME process in HM is performed using all the possible(More)
In this paper, a probabilistic fuzzy logic system (PFLS) is proposed for the modeling and control problems. Similar to the ordinary fuzzy logic system (FLS), the PFLS consists of the fuzzification, inference engine and defuzzification operation to process the fuzzy information. Different to the FLS, it uses the probabilistic modeling method to improve the(More)
With the recent explosion of scientific data of unprecedented size and complexity, feature ranking and screening are playing an increasingly important role in many scientific studies. In this article, we propose a novel feature screening procedure under a unified model framework, which covers a wide variety of commonly used parametric and semiparametric(More)
BACKGROUND Phytocyanins (PCs) are plant-specific blue copper proteins involved in electron transport, and a large number of known PCs are considered to be chimeric arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs). To date there has not been a genome-wide overview of the OsPC gene family. Therefore, as the first step and a useful strategy to elucidate the functions of OsPCs,(More)
Studies suggest that the preferential role of L-type voltage-sensitive Ca(2+) channels (VSCCs) in coupling strong synaptic stimulation to transcription is due to their selective activation of local chemical events. However, it is possible that selective activation of the L-type channel by specific voltage waveforms also makes a contribution. To address this(More)

We propose a new adaptive model update mechanism for the real-time mean shift blob tracking. Since the Kalman filter has been used mainly for smoothing the object trajectory in the tracking system, it is novel for us to use adaptive Kalman filters for filtering object kernel histogram so as to obtain the optimal estimate of object model. The acceptance of(More)
It is increasingly common for enterprises and other organizations to outsource network processing to the cloud. For example, enterprises may outsource fire-walling, caching, and deep packet inspection, just as they outsource compute and storage. However, this poses a threat to enterprise confidentiality because the cloud provider gains access to the(More)
CONTEXT Genetic alterations in receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt and MAPK pathways have not been fully defined in anaplastic and follicular thyroid cancers [anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC), follicular thyroid cancer (FTC)]. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to explore a wide-range genetic basis for the(More)
We have identified the key protein substrate of gelatinase B/MMP-9 (GB) that is cleaved in vivo during dermal-epidermal separation triggered by antibodies to the hemidesmosomal protein BP180 (collagen XVII, BPAG2). Mice deficient in either GB or neutrophil elastase (NE) are resistant to blister formation in response to these antibodies in a mouse model of(More)
