    AF-Net: A Medical Image Segmentation Network Based on Attention Mechanism and Feature Fusion

    Guimin Hou1, Jiaohua Qin1,*, Xuyu Xiang1, Yun Tan1, Neal N. Xiong2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 1877-1891, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.017481

    Abstract Medical image segmentation is an important application field of computer vision in medical image processing. Due to the close location and high similarity of different organs in medical images, the current segmentation algorithms have problems with mis-segmentation and poor edge segmentation. To address these challenges, we propose a medical image segmentation network (AF-Net) based on attention mechanism and feature fusion, which can effectively capture global information while focusing the network on the object area. In this approach, we add dual attention blocks (DA-block) to the backbone network, which comprises parallel channels and spatial attention branches, to adaptively calibrate and weigh… More >

    Nimmala Mangathayaru1,*, Padmaja Rani2, Vinjamuri Janaki3, Kalyanapu Srinivas4, B. Mathura Bai1, G. Sai Mohan1, B. Lalith Bharadwaj1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.2, pp. 2425-2443, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.016534

    Abstract Arrhythmia is ubiquitous worldwide and cardiologists tend to provide solutions from the recent advancements in medicine. Detecting arrhythmia from ECG signals is considered a standard approach and hence, automating this process would aid the diagnosis by providing fast, cost-efficient, and accurate solutions at scale. This is executed by extracting the definite properties from the individual patterns collected from Electrocardiography (ECG) signals causing arrhythmia. In this era of applied intelligence, automated detection and diagnostic solutions are widely used for their spontaneous and robust solutions. In this research, our contributions are two-fold. Firstly, the Dual-Tree Complex Wavelet Transform (DT-CWT) method is implied… More >

    Short-term Wind Speed Prediction with a Two-layer Attention-based LSTM

    Jingcheng Qian1, Mingfang Zhu1, Yingnan Zhao2,*, Xiangjian He3

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 197-209, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.016911

    Abstract Wind speed prediction is of great importance because it affects the efficiency and stability of power systems with a high proportion of wind power. Temporal-spatial wind speed features contain rich information; however, their use to predict wind speed remains one of the most challenging and less studied areas. This paper investigates the problem of predicting wind speeds for multiple sites using temporal and spatial features and proposes a novel two-layer attention-based long short-term memory (LSTM), termed 2Attn-LSTM, a unified framework of encoder and decoder mechanisms to handle temporal-spatial wind speed data. To eliminate the unevenness of the original wind speed,… More >

    Mixed Attention Densely Residual Network for Single Image Super-Resolution

    Jingjun Zhou1,2, Jing Liu3, Jingbing Li1,2,*, Mengxing Huang1,2, Jieren Cheng4, Yen-Wei Chen5, Yingying Xu3,6, Saqib Ali Nawaz1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.39, No.1, pp. 133-146, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.016633

    Abstract Recent applications of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in single image super-resolution (SISR) have achieved unprecedented performance. However, existing CNN-based SISR network structure design consider mostly only channel or spatial information, and cannot make full use of both channel and spatial information to improve SISR performance further. The present work addresses this problem by proposing a mixed attention densely residual network architecture that can make full and simultaneous use of both channel and spatial information. Specifically, we propose a residual in dense network structure composed of dense connections between multiple dense residual groups to form a very deep network. This structure… More >

    Algorithm of Helmet Wearing Detection Based on AT-YOLO Deep Mode

    Qingyang Zhou1, Jiaohua Qin1,*, Xuyu Xiang1, Yun Tan1, Neal N. Xiong2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.1, pp. 159-174, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.017480

    Abstract The existing safety helmet detection methods are mainly based on one-stage object detection algorithms with high detection speed to reach the real-time detection requirements, but they can’t accurately detect small objects and objects with obstructions. Therefore, we propose a helmet detection algorithm based on the attention mechanism (AT-YOLO). First of all, a channel attention module is added to the YOLOv3 backbone network, which can adaptively calibrate the channel features of the direction to improve the feature utilization, and a spatial attention module is added to the neck of the YOLOv3 network to capture the correlation between any positions in the… More >

    Joint Event Extraction Based on Global Event-Type Guidance and Attention Enhancement

    Daojian Zeng1, Jian Tian2, Ruoyao Peng1, Jianhua Dai1,*, Hui Gao3, Peng Peng4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.3, pp. 4161-4173, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.017028

    Abstract Event extraction is one of the most challenging tasks in information extraction. It is a common phenomenon where multiple events exist in the same sentence. However, extracting multiple events is more difficult than extracting a single event. Existing event extraction methods based on sequence models ignore the interrelated information between events because the sequence is too long. In addition, the current argument extraction relies on the results of syntactic dependency analysis, which is complicated and prone to error transmission. In order to solve the above problems, a joint event extraction method based on global event-type guidance and attention enhancement was… More >

    Yan Jiang1, Xinrui Jia1, Liguo Zhang1,2,*, Ye Yuan1, Lei Chen3, Guisheng Yin1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.3, pp. 4051-4067, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.016481

    Abstract The technology for image-to-image style transfer (a prevalent image processing task) has developed rapidly. The purpose of style transfer is to extract a texture from the source image domain and transfer it to the target image domain using a deep neural network. However, the existing methods typically have a large computational cost. To achieve efficient style transfer, we introduce a novel Ghost module into the GANILLA architecture to produce more feature maps from cheap operations. Then we utilize an attention mechanism to transform images with various styles. We optimize the original generative adversarial network (GAN) by using more efficient calculation… More >
