  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1959)
  • Yeshiwondim, Asnakew K; Gopal, Sucharita; Hailemariam, Afework T; Dengela, Dereje O; Patel, Hrishikesh P (BioMed Central, 2009-1-26)
    BACKGROUND. Malaria is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Ethiopia, accounting for over five million cases and thousands of deaths annually. The risks of morbidity and mortality associated with malaria are ...
  • Dresp, Birgitta; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1998-03)
    The thresholds of human observers detecting line targets improve significantly when the targets are presented in a spatial context of collinear inducing stimuli. This phenomenon is referred to as 'spatial facilitation', ...
  • Carpenter, Gail A. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-03)
    It is a neural network truth universally acknowledged, that the signal transmitted to a target node must be equal to the product of the path signal times a weight. Analysis of catastrophic forgetting by distributed codes ...
  • Alon, Jonathan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-09-18)
    Spotting patterns of interest in an input signal is a very useful task in many different fields including medicine, bioinformatics, economics, speech recognition and computer vision. Example instances of this problem include ...
  • Carpenter, Gail A.; Govindarajan, Krishna K. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1993-05)
    Intrinsic and extrinsic speaker normalization methods are systematically compared using a neural network (fuzzy ARTMAP) and L1 and L2 K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) categorizers trained and tested on disjoint sets of speakers ...
  • Ames, Heather; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-11-24)
    Auditory signals of speech are speaker-dependent, but representations of language meaning are speaker-independent. The transformation from speaker-dependent to speaker-independent language representations enables speech ...
  • Ames, Heather; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-12)
    Auditory signals of speech are speaker-dependent, but representations of language meaning are speaker-independent. Such a transformation enables speech to be understood from different speakers. A neural model is presented ...
  • Rosales, Rómer; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-03-28)
    A probabilistic, nonlinear supervised learning model is proposed: the Specialized Mappings Architecture (SMA). The SMA employs a set of several forward mapping functions that are estimated automatically from training data. ...
  • Rosales-del-Moral, Rómer E. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002)
    A fundamental task of vision systems is to infer the state of the world given some form of visual observations. From a computational perspective, this often involves facing an ill-posed problem; e.g., information is lost ...
  • Ryder Wilkie, Kari T.; Mertl, Amy L.; Traniello, James F. A. (Public Library of Science, 2010-10-1)
    Ants are among the most diverse, abundant and ecologically significant organisms on earth. Although their species richness appears to be greatest in the New World tropics, global patterns of ant diversity and distribution ...
  • Voevodski, Konstantin; Teng, Shang-Hua; Xia, Yu (BioMed Central, 2009-11-29)
    BACKGROUND. Protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks enable us to better understand the functional organization of the proteome. We can learn a lot about a particular protein by querying its neighborhood in a PPI network ...
  • Yi, K; Mujat, M; Park, B H; Sun, W; Miller, J W; Seddon, J M; Young, L H; de Boer, J F; Chen, T C (BMJ Publishing Group, 2008-12-3)
    BACKGROUND/AIMS:. To demonstrate how spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) can better evaluate drusen and associated anatomical changes in eyes with non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) ...
  • Cohen, Michael A.; Grossberg, Stephen; Wyse, Lonce L. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-01)
    A model of pitch perception, called the Spatial Pitch Network or SPINET model, is developed and analyzed. The model neurally instantiates ideas front the spectral pitch modeling literature and joins them to basic neural ...
  • Jin, Shudong; Guo, Liang; Matta, Ibrahim; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002-07)
    The increasing diversity of Internet application requirements has spurred recent interest in transport protocols with flexible transmission controls. In window-based congestion control schemes, increase rules determine how ...
  • Jin, Shudong; Guo, Liang; Matta, Ibrahim; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2001-02-02)
    The increased diversity of Internet application requirements has spurred recent interests in transport protocols with flexible transmission controls. In window-based congestion control schemes, increase rules determine how ...
  • Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1993-01-27)
    In this paper, we propose a new class of Concurrency Control Algorithms that is especially suited for real-time database applications. Our approach relies on the use of (potentially) redundant computations to ensure that ...
  • Guenther, Frank (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-04)
    This article describes a neural network model of speech motor skill acquisition and speech production that explains a wide range of data on contextual variability, motor equivalence, coarticulation, and speaking rate ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen; Versace, Massimiliano (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-12)
    This article develops the Synchronous Matching Adaptive Resonance Theory (SMART) neural model to explain how the brain may coordinate multiple levels of thalamocortical and corticocortical processing to rapidly learn, and ...
  • Léveillé, Jasmin; Versace, Massimiliano; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2009-05)
    Grouping of collinear boundary contours is a fundamental process during visual perception. Illusory contour completion vividly illustrates how stable perceptual boundaries interpolate between pairs of contour inducers, but ...
