Just-in-Time Dynamic-Batching [article]

Sheng Zha, Ziheng Jiang, Haibin Lin, Zhi Zhang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Batching is an essential technique to improve computation efficiency in deep learning frameworks. While batch processing for models with static feed-forward computation graphs is straightforward to implement, batching for dynamic computation graphs such as syntax trees or social network graphs is challenging due to variable computation graph structure across samples. Through simulation and analysis of a Tree-LSTM model, we show the key trade-off between graph analysis time and batching

We show empirically that our method yields up to 6.25 times speed-up on a common dynamic workload, a tree-LSTM model for the semantic relatedness task.

Based on this, it is assumed that the immunologic mechanism and inflammatory reaction play a significant role in the development of the disease. According to the clinical stage, there are two treatment patterns: oral medicine and surgery at present.

2016 Journal of Materials Engineering  
A self-designed oxygen-kerosene ablation system was employed to study the ablation mechanism and performance of the carbon-carbon composites. Particle concentrations of the gas-solid two-phase ablation flow were 0, 1.37%, 2.22%, and 2.64% respectively. The microstructure of post-test samples was analysed through the scanning electron microscope (SEM), and the ablation rate was calculated.

Experiment results show that with no particles involved the mass ablation rate is 0.159g/s and the linear ablation rate is 0.175mm/s, while with particles introduced, the minimum mass ablation rate and linear ablation rate are 0.432g/s and 0.843mm/s respectively, with the increase of particle concentrations, the ablation rate becomes accelerated. Particle erosion makes the ablation of sample seriously intensified, and the ablation gradient of radial fiber on erosion surface is increased with the increase of particle concentrations as well.

Low Rank Global Geometric Consistency for Partial-Duplicate Image Search

Li Yang, Yang Lin, Zhouchen Lin, Hongbin Zha
2014 2014 22nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition  
All existing feature point based partial-duplicate image retrieval systems are confronted with the false feature point matching problem. To resolve this issue, geometric contexts are widely used to verify the geometric consistency in order to remove false matches. However, most of the existing methods focus on local geometric contexts rather than global. Seeking global contexts has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. This paper introduces a novel global geometric consistency, based on
more » ... the low rankness of squared distance matrices of feature points, to detect false matches. We cast the problem of detecting false matches as a problem of decomposing a squared distance matrix into a low rank matrix, which models the global geometric consistency, and a sparse matrix, which models the mismatched feature points. So we arrive at a model of Robust Principal Component Analysis. Our Low Rank Global Geometric Consistency (LRGGC) is simple yet effective and theoretically sound. Extensive experimental results show that our LRGGC is much more accurate than state of the art geometric verification methods in detecting false matches and is robust to all kinds of similarity transformation (scaling, rotation, and translation) and even slight change in 3D views. Its speed is also highly competitive even compared with local geometric consistency based methods.

ZHA Bai-lin, GAO Shuang-lin, LIN Hao, LUO Lei, ZHANG Bo-wen, ZHU Jie-tang, SUN Zhen-sheng
2017 Journal of Materials Engineering  
There is a significant impact of ablation angle on the anti-ablation performance of C/C composites. A self-designed oxygen-kerosene ablation system was employed to study the ablation behavior and mechanism of C/C composites. Typical ablation angle of the experiment was 90°, 60°, 45° respectively, and particle concentration of the gas-solid two-phase ablation flow was 1.37%. The microstructure of post-test samples was observed with the scanning electron microscope(SEM), and the ablation rate of

The result shows that when the ablation angle is 90°, 60°, 45°,the corresponding mass ablation rate for ablation experiment is 0.146,0.123,0.100g/s respectively. With the decrease of ablation angle, the mass ablation rate of samples is decreased gradually; while for the samples affected by particle erosion, the corresponding mass ablation rate is 0.452,0.455,0.432g/s and the line ablation rate is 1.863,1.323,0.843mm/s. The mass ablation rate is approximately unchanged and the line ablation rate is decreased. The smaller the ablation angle is, the more serious the thermalchemical ablation of gas, and thus increase the erosion area of axial fiber bundle under ablation condition and ablation gradient of radial fiber under ablation/erosion condition.

Riemannian Manifold Learning for Nonlinear Dimensionality Reduction [chapter]

Tony Lin, Hongbin Zha, Sang Uk Lee
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In recent years, nonlinear dimensionality reduction (NLDR) techniques have attracted much attention in visual perception and many other areas of science. We propose an efficient algorithm called Riemannian manifold learning (RML). A Riemannian manifold can be constructed in the form of a simplicial complex, and thus its intrinsic dimension can be reliably estimated. Then the NLDR problem is solved by constructing Riemannian normal coordinates (RNC). Experimental results demonstrate that our

Essential Tensor Learning for Multi-view Spectral Clustering [article]

Jianlong Wu, Zhouchen Lin, Hongbin Zha
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Multi-view clustering attracts much attention recently, which aims to take advantage of multi-view information to improve the performance of clustering. However, most recent work mainly focus on self-representation based subspace clustering, which is of high computation complexity. In this paper, we focus on the Markov chain based spectral clustering method and propose a novel essential tensor learning method to explore the high order correlations for multi-view representation. We first

By incorporating the idea from robust principle component analysis, tensor singular value decomposition (t-SVD) based tensor nuclear norm is imposed to preserve the low-rank property of the essential tensor, which can well capture the principle information from multiple views. We also employ the tensor rotation operator for this task to better investigate the relationship among views as well as reduce the computation complexity. The proposed method can be efficiently optimized by the alternating direction method of multipliers~(ADMM). Extensive experiments on six real world datasets corresponding to five different applications show that our method achieves superior performance over other state-of-the-art methods.

Zha Lin, Ma Guanhuai
2021 Science Discovery  
In this study, the theory of density functional was used to geometrically optimize the binary chlorine-derived isomers of C 38 at the b3lyp/6-31g(d) level. Analysis of the reaction heat and HOMO-LUMO of the optimized structure shows that C 38 Cl 2 is thermodynamically stable; The 1-8 added isomer 10-C 38 Cl 2 -2-37 and The 1-4 added isomer 17-C 38 Cl 2 -12-27 was the most stable among the molecules studied. Derivatization mostly occurs on the carbon atom with the most negative charge, which is

Chlorination derivatization reduces the HOMO energy level of the carbon cage, increases the HOMO-LUMO energy level gap of the carbon cage, and reduces the reaction activity of the carbon cage. The vibration frequency calculation shows that the addition mode and symmetry will affect the maximum vibration frequency and intensity of the structure. The strongest vibration is generally C-Cl telescopic vibration. The higher the derived position symmetry, the greater the vibration intensity.

Industrial Efficiency Evaluation in China: A Nonparametric Production-Frontier Approach

Linlin Zhao, Lin Zhang, Yong Zha
2019 Sustainability  
An industrial system has positive and negative strategies to adapt to environmental regulations, which can be defined as natural disposability and managerial disposability. Meanwhile, the operational process of an industrial system can be divided into regular production activities and pollutant control activities. Within this, industrial system's technical efficiency (TE) can be decomposed into economic efficiency (ECE) and environmental efficiency (ENE). On the basis of natural disposability

Based on the proposed approach, TE, ECE, ENE, and Malmqusit productivity index (MPI) values were obtained simultaneously. The MPI values were further separated into the effects of static efficiency change and technical change. The proposed method was applied to assess the technical efficiencies of Chinese regional industrial systems between 2011 and 2015. Key findings are that (1) the low ENE is the main source of technical inefficiency; (2) the average static TE and ENE under natural disposability are both lower than those under managerial disposability; (3) the static efficiency change and technical change of TE are similar to those of ENE; and (4) the technical change has a significant impact on the changes in TE.

Yangfeng Ji, Tong Lin, Hongbin Zha
2010 2010 20th International Conference on Pattern Recognition  
In Dirichlet process (DP) mixture models, the number of components is implicitly determined by the sampling parameters of Dirichlet process. However, this kind of models usually produces lots of small mixture components when modeling real-world data, especially high-dimensional data. In this paper, we propose a new class of Dirichlet process mixture models with some constrained principles, named constrained Dirichlet process (CDP) mixture models. Based on general DP mixture models, we add a
