Self-Organization In 1-d Swarm Dynamics [article]

Jiangning Chen, Weituo Zhang, Chjan C.Lim
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Self-organization of a biologically motivated swarm into smaller subgroups of different velocities is found by solving a 1-dimensional adaptive-velocity swarm, in which the velocity of an agent is averaged over a finite local radius of influence. Using a mean field model in phase space, we find a dependence of this group-division phenomenon on the typical scales of the initial swarm in the position and velocity dimensions. Comparisons are made to previous swarm models in which the speed of an

APB2Face: Audio-guided face reenactment with auxiliary pose and blink signals [article]

Jiangning Zhang, Liang Liu, Zhucun Xue, Yong Liu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Audio-guided face reenactment aims at generating photorealistic faces using audio information while maintaining the same facial movement as when speaking to a real person. However, existing methods can not generate vivid face images or only reenact low-resolution faces, which limits the application value. To solve those problems, we propose a novel deep neural network named APB2Face, which consists of GeometryPredictor and FaceReenactor modules. GeometryPredictor uses extra head pose and blink

Omni-frequency Channel-selection Representations for Unsupervised Anomaly Detection [article]

Yufei Liang, Jiangning Zhang, Shiwei Zhao, Runze Wu, Yong Liu, Shuwen Pan
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Density-based and classification-based methods have ruled unsupervised anomaly detection in recent years, while reconstruction-based methods are rarely mentioned for the poor reconstruction ability and low performance. However, the latter requires no costly extra training samples for the unsupervised training that is more practical, so this paper focuses on improving this kind of method and proposes a novel Omni-frequency Channel-selection Reconstruction (OCR-GAN) network to handle anomaly

Concretely, we propose a Frequency Decoupling (FD) module to decouple the input image into different frequency components and model the reconstruction process as a combination of parallel omni-frequency image restorations, as we observe a significant difference in the frequency distribution of normal and abnormal images. Given the correlation among multiple frequencies, we further propose a Channel Selection (CS) module that performs frequency interaction among different encoders by adaptively selecting different channels. Abundant experiments demonstrate the effectiveness and superiority of our approach over different kinds of methods, e.g., achieving a new state-of-the-art 98.3 detection AUC on the MVTec AD dataset without extra training data that markedly surpasses the reconstruction-based baseline by +38.1 and the current SOTA method by +0.3.

Zhongyuan Zhang, Wei Wei, Hao Wang, Jiangning Dong
2021 Frontiers in Oncology  
The exploration of dynamic N6-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA modification in mammalian cells has attracted great interest in recent years. M6A modification plays pivotal roles in multiple biological and pathological processes, including cellular reprogramming, fertility, senescence, and tumorigenesis. In comparison with growing research unraveling the effects of m6A modifications on eukaryotic messenger RNAs, reports of the association between noncoding RNAs and m6A modification are relatively

Moreover, the homeostasis of m6A modification can be affected by noncoding RNAs across a broad spectrum of biological activities. Importantly, fine-tuning and interaction between these processes are responsible for cell development, as well as the initiation and progression of the disease. Hence, in this review, we provide an account of recent developments, revealing biological interactions between noncoding RNAs and m6A modification, and discuss the potential clinical applications of interfering with m6A modification.

Knockdown of N-Acetylglucosaminyl Transferase V Ameliorates Hepatotoxin-Induced Liver Fibrosis in Mice

2013 Toxicological Sciences  
Aberrant N-glycosylation caused by altered N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V) expression is known to regulate tumor invasion and metastasis by modulating multiple cytokine signaling pathways. However, the exact role of GnT-V in the development of liver fibrosis has not been clearly defined. Here, we induced mouse liver fibrosis by ip injections of carbon tetrachloride (CCl 4 ) or thioacetamide (TAA) and observed significant increase of hepatic GnT-V during the processes of liver

To knock down hepatic GnT-V expression, adenovirus that expressed the GnT-V siRNA was injected via the tail vein. Adenovirus-mediated delivery of GnT-V siRNA dramatically reduced the GnT-V expression in fibrotic liver and activated HSC in vivo and consequently alleviated CCl 4 -or TAA-induced liver fibrosis as assessed through collagen deposition and profiles of profibrogenic markers. Furthermore, knockdown of GnT-V in HSCs reduced transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ)/Smad signaling and blunted the activated HSC phenotype. The suppression of TGF-β/Smad signaling in HSCs correlated with the decrease of GnT-V-modified β1,6-branched N-glycan on TGF-β receptors. Knockdown of GnT-V also suppressed platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-induced HSC proliferation and migration through inhibiting PDGF/Erk signaling. Finally, we demonstrated that knockdown of GnT-V profoundly suppressed TGF-β1-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in hepatocytes by morphological assessment and reversal of EMT markers. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that GnT-V is implicated in hepatotoxininduced liver fibrosis, and targeting GnT-V may be a feasible and promising approach for treating liver fibrosis.

Then to further speed up the inference procedure, we also present a novel Gated Dual Flow Alignment Module to directly align high resolution feature maps and low resolution feature maps where we term improved version network as SFNet-Lite. Extensive experiments are conducted on several challenging datasets, where results show the effectiveness of both SFNet and SFNet-Lite. In particular, the proposed SFNet-Lite series achieve 80.1 mIoU while running at 60 FPS using ResNet-18 backbone and 78.8 mIoU while running at 120 FPS using STDC backbone on RTX-3090. Moreover, we unify four challenging driving datasets (i.e., Cityscapes, Mapillary, IDD and BDD) into one large dataset, which we named Unified Driving Segmentation (UDS) dataset. It contains diverse domain and style information. We benchmark several representative works on UDS. Both SFNet and SFNet-Lite still achieve the best speed and accuracy trade-off on UDS which serves as a strong baseline in such a new challenging setting.

FReeNet: Multi-Identity Face Reenactment [article]

Jiangning Zhang, Xianfang Zeng, Mengmeng Wang, Yusu Pan, Liang Liu, Yong Liu, Yu Ding, Changjie Fan
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents a novel multi-identity face reenactment framework, named FReeNet, to transfer facial expressions from an arbitrary source face to a target face with a shared model. The proposed FReeNet consists of two parts: Unified Landmark Converter (ULC) and Geometry-aware Generator (GAG). The ULC adopts an encode-decoder architecture to efficiently convert expression in a latent landmark space, which significantly narrows the gap of the face contour between source and target identities.
more » ... The GAG leverages the converted landmark to reenact the photorealistic image with a reference image of the target person. Moreover, a new triplet perceptual loss is proposed to force the GAG module to learn appearance and geometry information simultaneously, which also enriches facial details of the reenacted images. Further experiments demonstrate the superiority of our approach for generating photorealistic and expression-alike faces, as well as the flexibility for transferring facial expressions between identities.
