NanoChest-Net: A Simple Convolutional Network for Radiological Studies Classification

Juan Eduardo Luján-García, Yenny Villuendas-Rey, Itzamá López-Yáñez, Oscar Camacho-Nieto, Cornelio Yáñez-Márquez
2021 Diagnostics  
In two of the five datasets used in the experiments, NanoChest-net obtained the best results, while on the remaining datasets our model proved to be as good as baseline models from the state of the art  ...  In addition, NanoChest-net is useful to classify radiological studies on the same level as state-of-the-art algorithms with the advantage that it does not require a large number of operations.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

2019 Animals  
The results of Experiment 1 showed that access to a tangible (dogs D01, D02, D03, and D04) and owner attention (dog D05) were reliably maintaining the jumping up behaviour.  ...  The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of procedures successfully used in human related applied behaviour analysis practices to the field of clinical animal behaviour  ...  This work was completed as part of the requirements for the Ph.D. degree of the first author from the School of Biological Sciences, Queen's University Belfast, United Kingdom.  ...

A Revised Characterization of the WFPC2 CTE Loss

Andrew E. Dolphin
2009 Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific  
Second, the change in CTE loss during readout is accounted for analytically. Finally, a reanalysis of the CTE dependencies on counts, background, and observation date was made.  ...  This paper re-examines the CTE loss of WFPC2, with three significant changes over previous studies.  ...  The reason for the difference is the term allowing the background correction slope to change as a function of star brightness, which was not present in the D02 CTE equation.  ...

Machine Learning Algorithms to Predict Tree-Related Microhabitats using Airborne Laser Scanning

Giovanni Santopuoli, Mirko Di Febbraro, Mauro Maesano, Marco Balsi, Marco Marchetti, Bruno Lasserre
2020 Remote Sensing  
In the last few years, the occurrence and abundance of tree-related microhabitats and habitat trees have gained great attention across Europe as indicators of forest biodiversity.  ...  The results demonstrate that Airborne Laser Scanning point clouds support the prediction of microhabitat abundance.  ...  However, the combination of ALS metrics in the prediction is not fixed, but the selection of metrics changes for the prediction of each microhabitat type and category.  ...

Identification of stable QTLs for fiber quality and plant structure in Upland cotton (G. hirsutum L.) under drought stress

Asena Akköse Baytar, Ceng Peynircioğlu, Volkan Sezener, Hüseyin Basal, Anne Frary, Amy Frary, Sami Doğanlar
2018 Industrial crops and products (Print)  
The QTLs identified herein could be useful in the development of cotton cultivars that have adaptability to drought conditions worldwide.  ...  Of the identified QTLs, some QTLs were detected in both locations: three for well-watered and two for water-stress conditions. Moreover, a total of 19 QTLs were stable under both watering-regimes.  ...  Acknowledgments This study was supported bythe Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey -TUBİTAK. Project No: 3110087.  ...

Behaviour of resampling methods under different weighting schemes, measures and variable resampling strengths

Cecilia Kopuchian, Martín J. Ramírez
2010 Cladistics  
Specifically, for each method we evaluated the number of spurious groups (groups not present in the strict consensus of the unaltered data set), of real groups, and of inconsistencies in ranking of groups  ...  Finally, we evaluated the ranking of groups under variable resampling strengths qualitatively in the trajectories of "support" against resampling strength, and quantitatively with Kendall coefficient values  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Santiago Catalano, Marcos Mirande, Pablo Goloboff and an anonymous reviewer for helpful comments on the manuscript and Leonardo Campagna for help with the figures.  ...

On the reproducibility of spatiotemporal traffic dynamics with microscopic traffic models

Florian Knorr, Michael Schreckenberg
2012 Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment  
The investigation of different downstream boundary conditions, for example, shows that the physical origin of the traffic breakdown may be artificially induced by the setup of the boundaries.  ...  A characteristic phenomenon of traffic dynamics is the spontaneous and abrupt drop of the average velocity on a stretch of road leading to congestion.  ...  Treiber for discussing various aspects of the IDM with him.

Performance Evaluation of an Explicit Lightning Forecasting System

S. Dafis, A. Fierro, T. M. Giannaros, V. Kotroni, K. Lagouvardos, E. Mansell
2018 Journal of Geophysical Research - Atmospheres  
The simulated areal coverage of FOD using E-WRF also reduces the false alarms of lightning activity both over land and sea compared to a well-documented diagnostic lightning prediction scheme.  ...  Most of the lightning activity over the sea, however, is generally poorly forecasted. Lightning-producing events over the sea near Greece mainly occur during the cold season.  ...  This work was further supported by the U.S. Department of Commerce (NOAA) under the GOES-R Risk Reduction Program.  ...

1988 Experimental Brain Research  
In 9 adult anaesthetized cats, 22 lumbosacral Renshaw cells recorded with NaCl-filled micropipettes were activated by random stimulation of ventral roots or peripheral nerves.  ...  The direct effect of the first "conditional" response was subtracted from the excitation following the second ("test") stimulus so as to isolate the effect caused by the second stimulus per se.  ...  This work was partly supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, SFB 33 ("Nervensystem und biologische Information") G6ttingen.
