RAD 789 Image File Formats : Past , Present , and Future 1

  title={RAD 789 Image File Formats : Past , Present , and Future 1},
  author={Richard H. Wiggins and H. Christian Davidson and H. Ric Harnsberger and Jason R. Lauman and Patricia Goede},
Despite the rapid growth of the Internet for storage and display of World Wide Web–based teaching files, the available image file formats have remained relatively limited. The recently developed portable networks graphics (PNG) format is versatile and offers several advantages over the older Internet standard image file formats that make it an attractive option for digital teaching files. With the PNG format, it is possible to repeatedly open, edit, and save files with lossless compression…

Tuple-oriented Compression for Large-scale Mini-batch Stochastic Gradient Descent
This work proposes a new lossless compression scheme called tuple-oriented compression (TOC) that is inspired by an unlikely source, the string/ text compression scheme Lempel-Ziv-Welch, but tailored to mini-batch stochastic gradient descent in a way that preserves tuple boundaries within mini-batches.
When Lempel-Ziv-Welch Meets Machine Learning: A Case Study of Accelerating Machine Learning using Coding
This study demonstrates that a slight variant of the classical Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) coding scheme is a good fit for several popular ML algorithms, resulting in substantial runtime savings.
Development of a systematic computer vision-based method to analyse and compare images of false identity documents for forensic intelligence purposes-Part I: Acquisition, calibration and validation issues.
Results indicate that the use of Hue and Edge filters or their combination to extract profiles from images, and then the comparison of profiles with a Canberra distance-based metric provides the most accurate classification of documents.
Can artificial diets be a feasible alternative for gonadal growth and maturation of the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus (Lamarck, 1816)?
Three jellified diets resulted in less-developed gonadal stages, which are more appropriate for commercial purposes in terms of sensorial characteristics appreciated by the consumers, and gonad color analyses confirmed a redder roe in P. lividus.


An Indexing and Querying System for Online Images Based on the PNG Format and Embedded Metadata
A Java application which enables the computer-assisted generation and editing of Dublin Core-based metadata descriptions for digital images and the annotation of regions within images and an improved image browsing method which exploits the metadata embedded in thumbnail PNG images.
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) Specification Version 1.0
PNG provides a patent-free replacement for GIF and can also replace many common uses of TIFF, and indexed-color, grayscale, and truecolor images are supported, plus an optional alpha channel.
A World Wide Web Internet engine for collaborative entry and peer review of radiologic teaching files.
A World Wide Web-based Internet engine is created for the collaborative entry and peer review of radiologic teaching files to help promote the creation of teaching files in a more timely, efficient, and effective manner.
Web-based digital radiology teaching file: facilitating case input at time of interpretation.
This inexpensive and simple method for building a digital teaching file database allows cross-platform access for users who have a Web browser.
Introduction to wavelet-based compression of medical images.
Wavelet-based methods offer significantly better results for compressing medical images than do compression algorithms based on Fourier methods, such as the discrete cosine transform used by the Joint Photographic Experts Group.
