The Poor Relation

Li Guowen, Zhu Hong
1994 Iowa Review : literary quarterly  
a new star on the literary horizon of X province. For the last few days, he has lost his appetite, and at night, he tosses about in bed, unable to sleep. The fact is, poor Mr. H. is suffering from writer's block. Everybody knows that H. made a name for himself on rural themes. The virgin work which brought him fame and recognition was based on the story of his poor cousin in his home village. Her list of misfortunes, her tears, her courage and forbearance amidst poverty and hardship had wrung

Whenever he takes up his pen, his poor cousin and the bleak life of those bygone times come back to haunt him. So out of keeping with the current vogue of rural rags-to-riches stories. So frustrating. Of course H. strives to maintain a dignified silence. But to remain in the shade when so many new works are out in the sun is more than he can bear. H. is despondent. Can he turn out nothing but sketches of his poor cousin? The impression she left on his mind was too deep, to the exclusion of everything else. In that remote poverty-stricken mountain village, cash is so rare that many families cannot even afford matting for their brick beds. And yet his cousin always managed to save something for him, a spark of tenderness which warmed his forlorn heart. Thus his style was formed, a touch of tenderness, slightly tinged with pathos. But this style is no longer to modern tastes.

ShiftNAS: Towards Automatic Generation of Advanced Mulitplication-Less Neural Networks [article]

Xiaoxuan Lou, Guowen Xu, Kangjie Chen, Guanlin Li, Jiwei Li, Tianwei Zhang
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Multiplication-less neural networks significantly reduce the time and energy cost on the hardware platform, as the compute-intensive multiplications are replaced with lightweight bit-shift operations. However, existing bit-shift networks are all directly transferred from state-of-the-art convolutional neural networks (CNNs), which lead to non-negligible accuracy drop or even failure of model convergence. To combat this, we propose ShiftNAS, the first framework tailoring Neural Architecture

Specifically, we pioneer dragging NAS into a shift-oriented search space and endow it with the robust topology-related search strategy and custom regularization and stabilization. As a result, our ShiftNAS breaks through the incompatibility of traditional NAS methods for bit-shift neural networks and achieves more desirable performance in terms of accuracy and convergence. Extensive experiments demonstrate that ShiftNAS sets a new state-of-the-art for bit-shift neural networks, where the accuracy increases (1.69-8.07)% on CIFAR10, (5.71-18.09)% on CIFAR100 and (4.36-67.07)% on ImageNet, especially when many conventional CNNs fail to converge on ImageNet with bit-shift weights.

2017 Chinese Optics Letters (COL)  
A novel black phosphorus (BP) solution saturable absorber (SA) is fabricated by the liquid-phase-exfoliated method and successfully used for passively Q-switched (QS) Nd:YVO 4 laser. Compared with a traditional solid SA, a BP solution SA possesses more excellent optical transparency and higher damage resistance. The shortest pulse duration and highest average output power are measured to be 119 ns and 1.23 W, respectively. To the best of our knowledge, both of them are the best results among QS

SIMC 2.0: Improved Secure ML Inference Against Malicious Clients [article]

Guowen Xu, Xingshuo Han, Tianwei Zhang, Hongwei Li, Robert H.Deng
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we study the problem of secure ML inference against a malicious client and a semi-trusted server such that the client only learns the inference output while the server learns nothing. This problem is first formulated by Lehmkuhl et al. with a solution (MUSE, Usenix Security'21), whose performance is then substantially improved by Chandran et al.'s work (SIMC, USENIX Security'22). However, there still exists a nontrivial gap in these efforts towards practicality, giving the

We propose SIMC 2.0, which complies with the underlying structure of SIMC, but significantly optimizes both the linear and non-linear layers of the model. Specifically, (1) we design a new coding method for homomorphic parallel computation between matrices and vectors. It is custom-built through the insight into the complementarity between cryptographic primitives in SIMC. As a result, it can minimize the number of rotation operations incurred in the calculation process, which is very computationally expensive compared to other homomorphic operations e.g., addition, multiplication). (2) We reduce the size of the garbled circuit (GC) (used to calculate nonlinear activation functions, e.g., ReLU) in SIMC by about two thirds. Then, we design an alternative lightweight protocol to perform tasks that are originally allocated to the expensive GCs. Compared with SIMC, our experiments show that SIMC 2.0 achieves a significant speedup by up to 17.4× for linear layer computation, and at least 1.3× reduction of both the computation and communication overheads in the implementation of non-linear layers under different data dimensions. Meanwhile, SIMC 2.0 demonstrates an encouraging runtime boost by 2.3∼ 4.3× over SIMC on different state-of-the-art ML models.

Stress Measurement of Steel Strands Based on System Identification Method

Ji Qian, Jianbin Li, Changchun Li, Jianting Zhou, Guowen Yao
2019 Shock and Vibration  
Steel strands are crucial components of a prestressed structure, but their performance degrades inevitably with time. Among the existing nondestructive testing methods for measuring the stress state of steel strands, ultrasonic guided wave methods have received the most research attention and are most likely to be applied to actual engineering. This work views the propagation of ultrasonic guided wave as an individual system, and the variations in the stress state in steel strands can be

The finite element simulation and experimental results show the propagation characteristics of the guided wave are influenced distinctly by the stress state. The index constructed by the system parameters exhibits good monotonic linear with stress level variation, and the slope of the fitted line from experimental data is similar to the simulation result. The sensor placement and loading path have a limited effect on the stress state and the proposed index.

2021 Oncology Reports  
The present study aimed to investigate the role of partner of NOB1 homolog (PNO1) in esophageal cancer (EC). The expression levels of PNO1 in EC were primarily analyzed using data obtained from databases. PNO1 expression was also knocked down in EC cells (Eca‑109 and TE1) to determine the biological effects of PNO1 on tumorigenesis in vitro and in vivo. In addition, possible downstream targets of PNO1 in EC were identified. The expression levels of PNO1 were upregulated in the tumor tissues

Furthermore, the protein expression levels of AKT1, Twist, Myc, mTOR, matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2), nuclear factor (NF)‑κB p65 and β‑catenin 1 (CTNNB1) were downregulated following the KD of PNO1 in Eca‑109 cells (P < 0.05). In addition, the overexpression of CTNNB1 reversed the effects of PNO1 KD in Eca‑109 cells (P < 0.05). In conclusion, the findings of the present study suggest that PNO1 promotes EC progression by regulating AKT1, Twist, Myc, mTOR, MMP2, NF‑κB p65 and CTNNB1 expression.

2008 Journal of Communications  
Publicly verifiable secret sharing (PVSS) allows not only shareholders themselves but also everyone verify the shares of a secret distributed by a dealer. It has a lot of electronic applications. In this paper, we propose a publicly verifiable member-join protocol for threshold signatures. In our proposal, a new member can join a PVSS scheme to share the secret only with the help of old shareholders. What's more, everyone besides the new member can verify the validity of the new member's share,
