Domain Adapting Ability of Self-Supervised Learning for Face Recognition [article]

Chun-Hsien Lin, Bing-Fei Wu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Although deep convolutional networks have achieved great performance in face recognition tasks, the challenge of domain discrepancy still exists in real world applications. Lack of domain coverage of training data (source domain) makes the learned models degenerate in a testing scenario (target domain). In face recognition tasks, classes in two domains are usually different, so classical domain adaptation approaches, assuming there are shared classes in domains, may not be reasonable solutions

The learning goal is maximizing the similarity between the embeddings of each image and its mirror in both domains. The experiments show its competitive results compared with prior works. To know the reason why it can achieve such performance, we further discuss how this approach affects the learning of embeddings.

Recursive Algorithms For Image Segmentation Based On A Discriminant Criterion

Bing-Fei Wu, Yen-Lin Chen, Chung-Cheng Chiu
2007 Zenodo  
In this study, a new criterion for determining the number of classes an image should be segmented is proposed. This criterion is based on discriminant analysis for measuring the separability among the segmented classes of pixels. Based on the new discriminant criterion, two algorithms for recursively segmenting the image into determined number of classes are proposed. The proposed methods can automatically and correctly segment objects with various illuminations into separated images for

An efficient architecture for JPEG2000 coprocessor

Bing-Fei Wu, Chung-Fu Lin
2004 IEEE transactions on consumer electronics  
JPEG2000 is a new international standard for still image compression. It provides various functions in one single coding stream and the better compression quality than the traditional JPEG, especially in the high compression ratio. However, the heavy computation and large internal memory requirement still restrict the consumer electronics applications. In this paper, we propose a QCB (quad code block)-based DWT method to achieve the higher parallelism than the traditional DWT approach of

Thus, the DWT and EBCOT processors can process simultaneously and the high computational EBCOT then has the higher parallelism of the JPEG2000 encoding system. By changing the output timing of the DWT process and parallelizing with EBCOT, the internal tile memory size can be reduced by a factor of 4. The memory access cycles between the internal tile memory and the code block memory also decrease with the smooth encoding flow.

Driving behaviour-based event data recorder

Bing-Fei Wu, Chung-Hsuan Yeh, Ying-Han Chen
2014 IET Intelligent Transport Systems  
A general event data recorder is a device installed in automobiles to record information related to vehicle crashes or accidents. The data provide a better understanding of how certain crashes come about. This study made a prototype of a driving behaviour-based event data recorder (DBEDR), which provides the information of driving behaviours and a danger level. The authors approach is to recognise the seven behaviours: normal driving, acceleration, deceleration, changing to the left lane or

The experimental results show that the proposed method achieved an average detection ratio of 95% for behaviour recognition. The danger level is inferred by fuzzy rules involved with the above behaviours. DBEDR recorded the recognised driving behaviours and the danger level, and the places were stored with the assistance of a global positioning system receiver. By integrating Google Maps, the locations, the driving behaviour occurrences, the danger level on the travel routes and the recorded images, the proposed DBEDR could be more useful compared with the traditional EDRs.

This study presents two sets of translation invariant wavelet transforms for coding an arbitrarily shaped image. Each set can be viewed as a shape-adaptive discrete wavelet transform (SA-DWT) with the property of translation invariance. The proposed transform schemes have the following merits: (1) they are translation invariant, (2) no sharp transition appears at the edges of the image, (3) the number of pixels is maintained constant after transformation, (4) the correlation of pixels is fully

A variable step-size sign algorithm for channel estimation

Yuan-Ping Li, Ta-Sung Lee, Bing-Fei Wu
2014 Signal Processing  
This paper proposes a new variable step-size sign algorithm (VSSA) for unknown channel estimation or system identification, and applies this algorithm to an environment containing two-component Gaussian mixture observation noise. The step size is adjusted using the gradient-based weighted average of the sign algorithm. The proposed scheme exhibits a fast convergence rate and low misadjustment error, and provides robustness in environments with heavy-tailed impulsive interference.

2022 Frontiers in Endocrinology  
ObjectivesPrimary aldosteronism (PA) is characterized by the autonomous excessive production of aldosterone in the adrenal cortex. Aldosterone is associated with damages to heart muscle and skeletal muscle. The purpose of this study was to evaluate serum levels of muscle injury markers and their associated factors in patients with primary aldosteronism.MethodsWe retrospectively enrolled subjects with PA and essential hypertension (EH) who had completed testing for serum high sensitivity
more » ... T (hs-TnT), creatine kinase isoenzyme MB (CK-MB) and myoglobin from the database of the Chongqing Primary Aldosteronism Study (CONPASS). Univariate and multivariate linear regression analyses were performed to analyze the influencing factors of myocardial injury markers.ResultsIn total, 278 patients with PA and 445 patients with EH were enrolled in this study. Compared with EH patients, serum concentrations of hs-TnT [7.0 (4.0–12.0) vs. 6.0 (3.0–11.0) ng/L; p=0.005] and myoglobin [24.2 (21.0–38.1) vs. 21.8 (21.0–31.9) μg/L; p=0.023] were significantly higher among PA patients, while no significant difference of CK-MB was found between two groups [1.4 (1.0–2.0) vs. 1.3 (0.9–1.9) μg/L; p=0.154]. Univariate linear regression analysis showed that myoglobin was negatively correlated with serum potassium (β=-0.31; p<0.01) and positively correlated with plasma aldosterone concentration (β=0.40; p<0.01) in the PA group, while no significant correlation was found between hs-TnT and biochemical parameters. After adjusting for multiple confounders, myoglobin was negatively correlated with serum potassium (β=-0.15; p<0.05) and positively correlated with plasma aldosterone concentration (β=0.34; p<0.01) in the PA group.ConclusionsThe serum level of myoglobin was significantly increased in PA patients, and myoglobin was independently correlated with plasma aldosterone concentration.
