The emerging high efficiency video coding standard (HEVC) adopts the quadtree-structured coding unit (CU). Each CU allows recursive splitting into four equal sub-CUs. At each depth level (CU size), the test model of HEVC (HM) performsmotion estimation (ME) with different sizes including , , , and . ME process in HM is performed using all the possible depth(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)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection frequently persists despite substantial virus-specific cellular immune responses. To determine if immunologically driven sequence variation occurs with HCV persistence, we coordinately analyzed sequence evolution and CD8+ T cell responses to epitopes covering the entire HCV polyprotein in subjects who were followed(More)
Co-saliency detection, an emerging and interesting issue in saliency detection, aims to discover the common salient objects in a set of images. This letter proposes a hierarchical segmentation based co-saliency model. On the basis of fine segmentation, regional histograms are used to measure regional similarities between region pairs in the image set, and(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are a phenotypically and functionally heterogenous population of leukocytes with distinct subsets serving a different set of specialized immune functions. Here we applied an in vitro whole cell panning approach using antibody phage display technology to identify cell-surface epitopes specifically expressed on human blood BDCA3(+) DCs.(More)
Multi-view video coding (MVC) is an ongoing standard in which variable size disparity estimation (DE) and motion estimation (ME) are both employed to select the best coding mode for each macroblock (MB). This technique achieves the highest possible coding efficiency, but it results in extremely large encoding time which obstructs it from practical use. In(More)
Low-rank matrix recovery (LRMR) model, aiming at decomposing a matrix into a low-rank matrix and a sparse one, has shown the potential to address the problem of saliency detection, where the decomposed low-rank matrix naturally corresponds to the background, and the sparse one captures salient objects. This is under the assumption that the background is(More)
We define a statistical angular resolution limit (ARL) on resolving two closely spaced point sources in a 3-D reference frame, using constraints on the probabilities of false alarm and detection for a hypothesis test. The ARL can be used as a performance measure for sensor arrays in localizing remote sources and is applicable to different measurement models(More)
The emerging international standard for multiview video coding (MVC) is an extension of H.264/advanced video coding. In the joint mode of MVC, both motion estimation (ME) and disparity estimation (DE) are included in the encoding process. This achieves the highest coding efficiency but requires a very high computational complexity. In this letter, we(More)
In high efficiency video coding (HEVC), the tree structured coding unit (CU) is adopted to allow recursive splitting into four equally sized blocks. At each depth level (or CU size), it enables up to 35 intraprediction modes, including a planar mode, a dc mode, and 33 directional modes. The intraprediction via exhaustive mode search exploited in the test(More)
