Correlation has been used extensively in object detection field. In this paper, two kinds of correlation filters, Minimum Average Correlation Energy (MACE) and Extended Maximum Average Correlation Height (EMACH), are applied as adaptive shift locators to detect and locate smudgy character strings in complex tabular color flight coupon images. These strings(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive theorists relate anxiety disorders to the way in which emotional information is processed. The existing research suggests that patients with anxiety disorders tend to allocate their attention toward threat-related information selectively, and this may differ among different types of anxious subjects. The aim of this study was to explore(More)
A novel technique is presented in this paper to extract strings in color images of both Business Settlement Plan (BSP) and non-BSP airline coupon. The essential concept is to remove non-text pixels from complex coupon images, rather than extract strings directly. First we transfer color images from RGB to HSV space, which is approximate uniformed, and then(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have documented that heightened impulsivity likely contributes to the development and maintenance of alcohol use disorders. However, there is still a lack of studies that comprehensively detected the brain changes associated with abnormal impulsivity in alcohol addicts. This study was designed to investigate the alterations in(More)
Objectives. Osteopontin (OPN) is overexpressed in breast cancers, while its clinical and prognostic significance remained unclear. This study aimed to assess the prognostic value of OPN, especially its splice variants, in breast cancers. Methods. Data were extracted from eligible studies concerning the OPN and OPN-c expression in breast cancer patients and(More)
—We consider large-scale virtual multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, in which a large number of user terminals communicate with a large number of cooperative bases stations (BSs). We focus on a training-based scheme and investigate the throughput maximization over various system parameters including pilot symbols, the time allocation coefficient(More)
