Texture Modeling with Convolutional Spike-and-Slab RBMs and Deep Extensions [article]

Heng Luo, Pierre Luc Carrier, Aaron Courville, Yoshua Bengio
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We apply the spike-and-slab Restricted Boltzmann Machine (ssRBM) to texture modeling. The ssRBM with tiled-convolution weight sharing (TssRBM) achieves or surpasses the state-of-the-art on texture synthesis and inpainting by parametric models. We also develop a novel RBM model with a spike-and-slab visible layer and binary variables in the hidden layer. This model is designed to be stacked on top of the TssRBM. We show the resulting deep belief network (DBN) is a powerful generative model that

We propose that the decreased availability of BDNF leads to deficits in axonal maintenance in carriers of the Met allele, and that this produces mesoscale changes in white matter architecture.  ...  In Met carriers structural connectivity was greatly increased throughout the forebrain, particularly in connections corresponding to the anterior and superior corona radiata as well as corticothalamic  ...  Fig. 1b shows the mean number of tracks for the 96 edges that were only present in the Met carriers.

The rapid global spread of COVID-19 has led to an unprecedented demand for effective methods to mitigate the spread of the disease, and various digital contact tracing (DCT) methods have emerged as a component of the solution. In order to make informed public health choices, there is a need for tools which allow evaluation and comparison of DCT methods. We introduce an agent-based compartmental simulator we call COVI-AgentSim, integrating detailed consideration of virology, disease progression,
more » ... social contact networks, and mobility patterns, based on parameters derived from empirical research. We verify by comparing to real data that COVI-AgentSim is able to reproduce realistic COVID-19 spread dynamics, and perform a sensitivity analysis to verify that the relative performance of contact tracing methods are consistent across a range of settings. We use COVI-AgentSim to perform cost-benefit analyses comparing no DCT to: 1) standard binary contact tracing (BCT) that assigns binary recommendations based on binary test results; and 2) a rule-based method for feature-based contact tracing (FCT) that assigns a graded level of recommendation based on diverse individual features. We find all DCT methods consistently reduce the spread of the disease, and that the advantage of FCT over BCT is maintained over a wide range of adoption rates. Feature-based methods of contact tracing avert more disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) per socioeconomic cost (measured by productive hours lost). Our results suggest any DCT method can help save lives, support re-opening of economies, and prevent second-wave outbreaks, and that FCT methods are a promising direction for enriching BCT using self-reported symptoms, yielding earlier warning signals and a significantly reduced spread of the virus per socioeconomic cost.

Definition Inductive logic programming is the subfield of machine learning that uses first order logic to represent hypotheses and data. Because first order logic is expressive and declarative, inductive logic programming specfically targets problems involving structured data and background knowledge.

Inductive logic programming systems have been applied to important applications in bio-and chemo-informatics, natural language processing, and web mining.

Effects of intraoperative hemodynamic management on postoperative acute kidney injury in liver transplantation: An observational cohort study

François Martin Carrier, Marie-Pierre Sylvestre, Luc Massicotte, Marc Bilodeau, Michaël Chassé, Ehab Farag
2020 PLoS ONE  
Intraoperative restrictive fluid management strategies might improve postoperative outcomes in liver transplantation. Effects of vasopressors within any hemodynamic management strategy are unclear. We conducted an observational cohort study on adult liver transplant recipients between July 2008 and December 2017. We measured the effect of vasopressors infused at admission in the intensive care unit (ICU) and total intraoperative fluid balance. Our primary outcome was 48-hour acute kidney injury
more » ... (AKI) and our secondary outcomes were 7-day AKI, need for postoperative renal replacement therapy (RRT), time to extubation in the ICU, time to ICU discharge and survival up to 1 year. We fitted models adjusted for confounders using generalized estimating equations or survival models using robust standard errors. We reported results with 95% confidence intervals. We included 532 patients. Vasopressors use was not associated with 48-hour or 7-day AKI but modified the effects of fluid balance on RRT and mortality. A higher fluid balance was associated with a higher need for RRT (OR = 1.52 [1.15, 2.01], p<0.001 for interaction) and lower survival (HR = 1.71 [1.26, 2.34], p<0.01 for interaction) only among patients without vasopressors. In patients with vasopressors, higher doses of vasopressors were associated with a higher mortality (HR = 1.29 [1.13, 1.49] per 10 μg/min of norepinephrine). The presence of any vasopressor at the end of surgery was not associated with AKI or RRT. The use of vasopressors might modify the harmful association between fluid balance and other postoperative outcomes. The liberal use of vasopressors to implement a restrictive fluid management strategy deserves further investigation.

Apathy in Parkinson's disease is associated with nucleus accumbens atrophy: A magnetic resonance imaging shape analysis

2014 Movement Disorders  
Os autores investigaram a base estrutural da apatia em doença de Parkinson (DP), através do uso de técnicas de neuroimagem. Eles estudaram 10 controles saudáveis, 10 portadores de DP sem apatia e 10 pacientes com DP e apatia resistente à terapia dopaminérgica. Eles estudaram a forma do núcleo accumbens com uma técnica de ressonância magnética chamada SPHARM-PDM (parametrização harmônica esférica e exemplificação em um modelo tridimensional de distribuição de pontos), bem como avaliação de

Os resultados com SPHARM-PDM mostraram que em pacientes com DP e apatia há atrofia do núcleo accumbens à esquerda além de haver maior atrofia da porção dorsolateral da cabeça do núcleo caudado esquerdo. As duas demais técnicas de neuroimagem não revelaram diferenças entre os grupos estudados. Os autores admites que o número de indivíduos estudados é pequeno pois os critérios de inclusão na pesquisa foram muito rigorosos. Apesar disto, a metodologia é muito rigorosa e indica que o corpo estriado ventral está comprometido estruturalmente na DP, resultando em apatia. Deve-se frisar, por fim, que apatia em DP parece ser multifatorial: uma parcela dos pacientes tem quadro depressivo associado, em outro grupo este achado coexiste com demência e, por fim, numa fração isto ocorre isoladamente.

2012 PLoS ONE  
A determining role has been assigned to cAMP in the signaling pathways that relieve resistance to anti-leukemia differentiation therapy. However, the underlying mechanisms have not been elucidated yet. Here, we identify cFos as a critical cAMP effector, able to regulate the re-expression and splicing of epigenetically silenced genes associated with maturation (CD44) in retinoid-resistant NB4-LR1 leukemia cells. Furthermore, using RNA interference approach, we show that cFos mediates

This study highlights some of the mechanisms by which cAMP acts to overcome resistance, and reveals a new alternative cFos-dependent pathway which, though nonexistent in retinoid-sensitive NB4 cells, is essential to rescue the maturation program of resistant cells.

In this paper we present the techniques used for the University of Montréal's team submissions to the 2013 Emotion Recognition in the Wild Challenge. The challenge is to classify the emotions expressed by the primary human subject in short video clips extracted from feature length movies. This involves the analysis of video clips of acted scenes lasting approximately one-two seconds, including the audio track which may contain human voices as well as background music. Our approach combines

We discuss each of these techniques, their performance characteristics and different strategies to aggregate their predictions. Our best single model was a convolutional neural network trained to predict emotions from static frames using two large data sets, the Toronto Face Database and our own set of faces images harvested from Google image search, followed by a per frame aggregation strategy that used the challenge training data. This yielded a test set accuracy of 35.58%. Using our best strategy for aggregating our top performing models into a single predictor we were able to produce an accuracy of 41.03% on the challenge test set. These compare favorably to the challenge baseline test set accuracy of 27.56%.
