Hierarchical complexity control algorithm for HEVC based on coding unit depth decision

The next-generation High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard reduces the bit rate by 44% on average compared to the previous-generation H.264 standard, resulting in higher encoding complexity. To achieve normal video coding in power-constrained devices and minimize the rate distortion degradation, this paper proposes a hierarchical complexity control algorithm for HEVC on the...

Multipopulation Management in Evolutionary Algorithms and Application to Complex Warehouse Scheduling Problems

Multipopulation is an effective optimization strategy which is often used in evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to improve optimization performance. However, it is of remarkable difficulty to determine the number of subpopulations during the evolution process for a given problem, which may significantly affect optimization ability of EAs. This paper proposes a simple multipopulation...

A novel texture-based asymmetric visibility threshold model for stereoscopic video coding

Asymmetric stereoscopic video coding is becoming increasingly popular, as it can reduce the bandwidth required for stereoscopic 3D delivery without degrading the visual quality. Based on the perceptual theory of binocular suppression, the left and right views of stereoscopic video are coded with different levels of quality. However, existing asymmetric perceptual coding...

Reforestation-induced changes of landscape composition and configuration modulate freshwater supply and flooding risk of tropical watersheds

Impact of changes in land cover and land use on hydrological service of tropical watersheds is one of the focal research tropics in both hydrology and Land Cover Land Use Changes (LCLUC). Land fragmentation is an important feature of LCLUC, however, its impact on hydrological service of tropical watershed is unclear despite a few theoretical frameworks. In this paper, we...

A pathway analysis of genome-wide association study highlights novel type 2 diabetes risk pathways

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been widely used to identify common type 2 diabetes (T2D) variants. However, the known variants just explain less than 20% of the overall estimated genetic contribution to T2D. Pathway-based methods have been applied into T2D GWAS datasets to investigate the biological mechanisms and reported some novel T2D risk pathways. However, few...

Detection and quantification of dengue virus using a novel biosensor system based on dengue NS3 protease activity

Contributions Conceptualization: Ming-Shu Hsieh, Hsin-Wei Chen. Data curation: Ming-Shu Hsieh, Mei-Yu Chen. 16 / 19 Investigation: Ming-Shu Hsieh, Mei-Yu Chen, Chun-Hsiang Hsieh. Resources: Chien-Hsiung Pan

Video quality assessment using motion-compensated temporal filtering and manifold feature similarity

Well-performed Video quality assessment (VQA) method should be consistent with human visual systems for better prediction accuracy. In this paper, we propose a VQA method using motion-compensated temporal filtering (MCTF) and manifold feature similarity. To be more specific, a group of frames (GoF) is first decomposed into a temporal high-pass component (HPC) and a temporal low...

Novel copy number variation of the TGFβ3 gene is associated with TGFβ3 gene expression and duration of fertility traits in hens

Improvements in the duration of fertility (DF) could increase the interval between successive artificial inseminations, thereby decreasing the cost associated with production of hatching eggs. The molecular mechanisms involved in DF in hens remains under-explored. In this study, expression levels of the transforming growth factor-β genes (TGFβs: TGFβ1, TGFβ2, TGFβ3) were...

Stock Market Autoregressive Dynamics: A Multinational Comparative Study with Quantile Regression

We study the nonlinear autoregressive dynamics of stock index returns in seven major advanced economies (G7) and China. The quantile autoregression model (QAR) enables us to investigate the autocorrelation across the whole spectrum of return distribution, which provides more insightful conditional information on multinational stock market dynamics than conventional time series...

Effects of auricular therapy to body composition in young asian women

This study investigated the efficacy of auricular therapy using semen vaccariae (SV) via auricular point sticking on weight loss, changes to waist circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio.The study used a randomized design with one control group and one experimental group consisting of young Asian women with waist circumferences ≥ 80 cm.The total sample size was 50 young women who...

Joint processing and fast encoding algorithm for multi-view depth video

The multi-view video plus depth format is the main representation of a three-dimensional (3D) scene. In the 3D extension of high-efficiency video coding (3D-HEVC), the main framework for depth video is similar to that of color video. However, because of the limitation of the mainstream capture technologies, depth video is inaccurate and inconsistent. In addition, the depth video...

Downregulation of blood serum microRNA 29 family in patients with Parkinson’s disease

There is currently no reliable and easily applicable diagnostic marker for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The aims of the present study were to compare the expression profiles of the microRNA29 family (miR-29s) in blood serum from patients with PD with healthy controls and to clarify whether the expression of miR-29s is correlated with disease severity, duration or L-dopa therapy and...

Using Diffusion Tensor Imaging to Evaluate Microstructural Changes and Outcomes after Radiofrequency Rhizotomy of Trigeminal Nerves in Patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by facial pain that may be sudden, intense, and recurrent. Our aim was to investigate microstructural tissue changes of the trigeminal nerve in patients with trigeminal neuralgia resulting from neurovascular compression by diffusion tensor imaging, and to test the predictive value of diffusion tensor imaging for determining outcomes after...

Decadal Trend in Agricultural Abandonment and Woodland Expansion in an Agro-Pastoral Transition Band in Northern China

Land use land cover (LULC) changes frequently in ecotones due to the large climate and soil gradients, and complex landscape composition and configuration. Accurate mapping of LULC changes in ecotones is of great importance for assessment of ecosystem functions/services and policy-decision support. Decadal or sub-decadal mapping of LULC provides scenarios for modeling...
