Let X denote the feature and Y the target. We consider domain adaptation under three possible scenarios: (1) the marginal P Y changes, while the conditional P X|Y stays the same (target shift), (2) the marginal P Y is fixed, while the conditional P X|Y changes with certain constraints (conditional shift), and (3) the marginal P Y changes, and the(More)
Hong Jiang began his talk by discussing the importance of data recovery. Disk failures have become more common in RAID-structured storage systems. The improvement in disk capacity has far outpaced improvements in disk band-width, lengthening the overall RAID recovery time. Also, disk drive reliability has improved slowly, resulting in a very high overall(More)
Inositol polyphosphate kinase (IPK; EC participates in inositol metabolism, calcium signaling, stress response, gene transcription and other physiological and biochemical processes. In the present work, ThIPK2 (an inositol polyphosphate kinase from Thellungiella halophila) was transferred into soybean through an Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated(More)
Intention inference can be an essential step toward efficient human-robot interaction. For this purpose, we propose the Intention-Driven Dynamics Model (IDDM) to probabilistically model the generative process of movements that are directed by the intention. The IDDM allows to infer the intention from observed movements using Bayes' theorem. The IDDM(More)
Opponent modeling is a critical mechanism in repeated games. It allows a player to adapt its strategy in order to better respond to the presumed preferences of his opponents. We introduce a new modeling technique that adaptively balances exploitability and risk reduction. An opponent's strategy is modeled with a set of possible strategies that contain the(More)
—Inference of human intention may be an essential step towards understanding human actions and is hence important for realizing efficient human-robot interaction. In this paper, we propose the Intention-Driven Dynamics Model (IDDM), a latent variable model for inferring unknown human intentions. We train the model based on observed human movements/actions.(More)
Playing table tennis is a difficult task for robots, especially due to their limitations of acceleration. A key bottleneck is the amount of time needed to reach the desired hitting position and velocity of the racket for returning the incoming ball. Here, it often does not suffice to simply extrapolate the ball's trajectory after the opponent returns it but(More)
Global transcription engineering was developed as a tool to reprogram gene transcription for eliciting new phenotypes important for technological applications (Science 2006, 314(5805):1565-1568). A recent report indicated that the beneficial growth advantage of yeast cells expressing the SPT15-300 mutation is the result of enhanced uptake and/or improved(More)
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT1; EC is the key enzyme governing the terminal step of triacylglycerol synthesis in plant seeds. The aims here were to isolate and characterize a full-length cDNA encoding DGAT1 from the sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) cultivar ‘Wanzhi1’ (oil content 55 ± 2 %; SiDGAT1); and to over-express that gene in Arabidopsis(More)
