Face Detection Using Deep Learning: An Improved Faster Rcnn Approach, Xudong SUN, Pengcheng WU, Steven C. H. HOI 2018 Singapore Management University

Face Detection Using Deep Learning: An Improved Faster Rcnn Approach, Xudong Sun, Pengcheng Wu, Steven C. H. Hoi

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

In this paper, we present a new face detection scheme using deep learning and achieve the state-of-the-art detection performance on the well-known FDDB face detection benchmark evaluation. In particular, we improve the state-of-the-art Faster RCNN framework by combining a number of strategies, including feature concatenation, hard negative mining, multi-scale training, model pre-training, and proper calibration of key parameters. As a consequence, the proposed scheme obtained the state-of-the-art face detection performance and was ranked as one of the best models in terms of ROC curves of the published methods on the FDDB benchmark

Smt-Based Answer Set Solver Cmodels-Diff (System Description), Da Shen, Yuliya Lierler 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Smt-Based Answer Set Solver Cmodels-Diff (System Description), Da Shen, Yuliya Lierler

Yuliya Lierler

Many answer set solvers utilize Satisfiability solvers for search. SMT solvers extend Satisfiability solvers. This paper presents the CMODELS-DIFF system that uses SMT solvers to find answer sets of a logic program. Its theoretical foundation is based on Niemala's characterization of answer sets of a logic program via so called level rankings. The comparative experimental analysis demonstrates that CMODELS-DIFF is a viable answer set solver.

Handwriting Recognition Of Bangla And Similar Scripts, Nishatul Majid 2018 Boise State University

Handwriting Recognition Of Bangla And Similar Scripts, Nishatul Majid

2018 Graduate Student Showcase

This research is about offline Bangla handwriting text recognition. Here we introduce a publicly accessible dataset, as well as a basic character recognition scheme. The dataset contains pages with a 104 word essay and a collection of 84 isolated alpha-numeric characters. All the components in the pages are tagged with the associated ground truth information. The character recognition scheme presented here uses zonal pixel counts, structural strokes and bag of features modeled with grid points using U-SURF descriptor as features. The maximum classification accuracy we obtain is 96.8% using an SVM classifier with a cubic kernel.


An Explanatory Study On The Non-Parametric Multivariate T2 Control Chart, Abdolrasoul Mostajeran, Nasrolah Iranpanah, Rassoul Noorossana 2018 Department of Statistics, University of Isfahan, Isfahan, Iran

An Explanatory Study On The Non-Parametric Multivariate T2 Control Chart, Abdolrasoul Mostajeran, Nasrolah Iranpanah, Rassoul Noorossana

Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods

Most control charts require the assumption of normal distribution for observations. When distribution is not normal, one can use non-parametric control charts such as sign control chart. A deficiency of such control charts could be the loss of information due to replacing an observation with its sign or rank. Furthermore, because the chart statistics of T2 are correlated, the T2 chart is not a desire performance. Non-parametric bootstrap algorithm could help to calculate control chart parameters using the original observations while no assumption regarding the distribution is needed. In this paper, first, a bootstrap multivariate control chart is ...


Optimum Stratification In Bivariate Auxiliary Variables Under Neyman Allocation, Faizan Danish, S.E.H. Rizvi 2018 Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, J&K India

Optimum Stratification In Bivariate Auxiliary Variables Under Neyman Allocation, Faizan Danish, S.E.H. Rizvi

Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods

In several situations complete data set of the study variable is unknown that becomes a stumbling block in various stratification techniques in order to obtain stratification points on two way stratification method. In this paper a technique has been proposed under Neyman allocation when the stratification is done oj the two auxiliary variable having one estimation variable under consideration. Due to complexities created by minimal equations approximate optimum strata boundaries has been obtained. Empirical study has been done to illustrate the proposed method when the auxiliary variables have standard Cauchy and power distributions.


Drip Water Measurements From Carlsbad Cavern: Implications Towards Paleoclimate Records Yielded From Evaporative-Zone Stalagmites, Victor J. Polyak, Jessica B.T. Rasmussen, Yemane Asmerom 2018 University of New Mexico

Drip Water Measurements From Carlsbad Cavern: Implications Towards Paleoclimate Records Yielded From Evaporative-Zone Stalagmites, Victor J. Polyak, Jessica B.T. Rasmussen, Yemane Asmerom

International Journal of Speleology

Stalagmites can host numerous potential climate proxies (stable and radiogenic isotopes, trace elements, annual and non-annual banding, grayscale, growth hiatuses, mineral assemblage). Reproducibility and/or integration of proxy results between one or more stalagmites will become increasingly important, and ideally, climate records generated by multiple stalagmites from the same cave or cave room are expected to be near-identical. The reality is that stalagmites from the same cave room can yield differing results to some degree, especially in cave environment zones that are evaporative. Our drip water study in an evaporative shallow-depth cave environment in Carlsbad Cavern shows that adjacent drip ...

Reconsidering Downwind Operation By Analysis Of The Nrel Phase Vi Data, Scott Larwood, Raymond Chow 2018 University of the Pacific

Reconsidering Downwind Operation By Analysis Of The Nrel Phase Vi Data, Scott Larwood, Raymond Chow

School of Engineering and Computer Science Faculty Articles

Data are presented comparing upwind versus downwind operation of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Phase VI wind turbine. Power was not reduced as expected for downwind, which may be attributed to inboard three-dimensional effects. Average flap bending loads were reduced with downwind coning and compared well with prediction. Fatigue loads were increased with downwind; however, fatigue was mitigated with a tower shroud. The shroud needs to align with the freestream, demonstrated by an increase in fatigue loads from a 10° shroud misalignment. Pressure data were acquired in the tower wake at the rotor location with and without the shroud ...

Seismic Imaging Of The Main Frontal Thrust In Nepal Reveals A Shallow Décollement And Blind Thrusting, Rafael V. Almeida, Judith Hubbard, Lee Liberty, Anna Foster, Soma Nath Sapkota

CGISS Publications and Presentations

Because great earthquakes in the Himalaya have an average recurrence interval exceeding 500 yr, most of what we know about past earthquakes comes from paleoseismology and tectonic geomorphology studies of the youngest fault system there, the Main Frontal Thrust (MFT). However, these data are sparse relative to fault segmentation and length, and interpretations are often hard to validate in the absence of information about fault geometry. Here, we image the upper two km of strata in the vicinity of the fault tip of the MFT in central Nepal (around the town of Bardibas) applying a pre-stack migration approach to two ...


Soil Conservation Efforts Affecting And Implementations To Help Tree Growth In Iceland, Justin Lawlor 2018 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Soil Conservation Efforts Affecting And Implementations To Help Tree Growth In Iceland, Justin Lawlor

Student Works

The purpose of this research was to understand and project the opinions of the public in Iceland on soil conservation and current efforts. The issue of soil erosion dates back to settlement around 1,100 years ago. The loss of vegetation from deforestation and grazing exposes the land to the effects of wind, water, and other devastating elements, leading it to erode away. The Soil Conservation Service of Iceland (SCSI) was developed to combat this issue over 100 years ago with efforts including planting trees, promoting safe farming practices, and replenishing the land. Interviews were conducted with various individuals, including ...
