    Short-Term Power Load Forecasting with Hybrid TPA-BiLSTM Prediction Model Based on CSSA

    Jiahao Wen, Zhijian Wang*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.1, pp. 749-765, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.023865

    Abstract Since the existing prediction methods have encountered difficulties in processing the multiple influencing factors in short-term power load forecasting, we propose a bidirectional long short-term memory (BiLSTM) neural network model based on the temporal pattern attention (TPA) mechanism. Firstly, based on the grey relational analysis, datasets similar to forecast day are obtained. Secondly, the bidirectional LSTM layer models the data of the historical load, temperature, humidity, and date-type and extracts complex relationships between data from the hidden row vectors obtained by the BiLSTM network, so that the influencing factors (with different characteristics) can select relevant information from different time steps… More >

    Xiaoping Xie*, Shijie Cheng, Xuyang Li

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.135, No.3, pp. 2425-2448, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.023116

    Abstract This paper proposed method that combined transmission path analysis (TPA) and empirical mode decomposition (EMD) envelope analysis to solve the vibration problem of an industrial robot. Firstly, the deconvolution filter time-domain TPA method is proposed to trace the source along with the time variation. Secondly, the TPA method positioned the main source of robotic vibration under typically different working conditions. Thirdly, independent vibration testing of the Rotate Vector (RV) reducer is conducted under different loads and speeds, which are key components of an industrial robot. The method of EMD and Hilbert envelope was used to extract the fault feature of… More >

    Towards Developing Privacy-Preserved Data Security Approach (PP-DSA) in Cloud Computing Environment

    S. Stewart Kirubakaran1,*, V. P. Arunachalam1, S. Karthik1, S. Kannan2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.44, No.3, pp. 1881-1895, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.026690

    Abstract In the present scenario of rapid growth in cloud computing models, several companies and users started to share their data on cloud servers. However, when the model is not completely trusted, the data owners face several security-related problems, such as user privacy breaches, data disclosure, data corruption, and so on, during the process of data outsourcing. For addressing and handling the security-related issues on Cloud, several models were proposed. With that concern, this paper develops a Privacy-Preserved Data Security Approach (PP-DSA) to provide the data security and data integrity for the outsourcing data in Cloud Environment. Privacy preservation is ensured… More >

    Triptolide Inhibits Breast Cancer Cell Metastasis Through Inducing the Expression of miR-146a, a Negative Regulator of Rho GTPase

    Qin Liu*†, Wei Wang, Fangqiong Li, Dongyang Yu, Chunfen Xu*, Hongbing Hu*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.9, pp. 1043-1050, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15560124931900

    Abstract Triptolide, an extract of Tripterygium wilfordii, has been shown to have a potent anticancer activity. In the present study, it was found that triptolide could effectively induce apoptosis and inhibit proliferation and invasion in malignant MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. The study focused on its effect on inhibiting invasion, which has not been extensively reported to date. We predicted that triptolide may change invasion activity via microRNAs (miRNAs), which have been recognized as important regulators of gene expression. miRNAome variation in MDA-MB-231 cells with or without triptolide treatment demonstrated that miR-146a was upregulated following treatment with triptolide. Our previous studies have… More >

    Yuma Nonomiya*, Takashi Yokokawa, Kazuyoshi Kawakami, Kazuo Kobayashi, Takeshi Aoyama, Tomomi Takiguchi, Takahito Sugisaki, Kenichi Suzuki, Mitsukuni Suenaga, Takeru Wakatsuki, Kensei Yamaguchi, Yoshikazu Sugimoto*, Toshihiro Hama

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.5, pp. 551-556, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15291727589740

    Abstract Regorafenib is a multikinase inhibitor for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer. Regorafenib-induced hand–foot skin reaction (HFSR) is a common side effect during treatment. The reported frequency of HFSR was 80% (grade 3: 28%) in the Japanese subpopulation in the CORRECT trial; however, more detailed data regarding HFSR in terms of onset and sites of susceptibility are unclear. Additionally, the risk factors for regorafenib-induced severe HFSR are unknown. The aim of this study was to compare HFSR between the hands and feet and identify preexisting risk factors for severe HFSR in Japanese patients receiving regorafenib. We retrospectively examined the onset… More >

    Perceptual Image Outpainting Assisted by Low-Level Feature Fusion and Multi-Patch Discriminator

    Xiaojie Li1, Yongpeng Ren1, Hongping Ren1, Canghong Shi2, Xian Zhang1, Lutao Wang1, Imran Mumtaz3, Xi Wu1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.3, pp. 5021-5037, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.023071

    Abstract Recently, deep learning-based image outpainting has made greatly notable improvements in computer vision field. However, due to the lack of fully extracting image information, the existing methods often generate unnatural and blurry outpainting results in most cases. To solve this issue, we propose a perceptual image outpainting method, which effectively takes the advantage of low-level feature fusion and multi-patch discriminator. Specifically, we first fuse the texture information in the low-level feature map of encoder, and simultaneously incorporate these aggregated features reusability with semantic (or structural) information of deep feature map such that we could utilize more sophisticated texture information to… More >
