Topology and Content Co-Alignment Graph Convolutional Learning.

IEEE Trans Neural Netw Learn Syst 2021 Jun 11;PP. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

In traditional graph neural networks (GNNs), graph convolutional learning is carried out through topology-driven recursive node content aggregation for network representation learning. In reality, network topology and node content each provide unique and important information, and they are not always consistent because of noise, irrelevance, or missing links between nodes. A pure topology-driven feature aggregation approach between unaligned neighborhoods may deteriorate learning from nodes with poor structure-content consistency, due to the propagation of incorrect messages over the whole network.

JPEG Robust Invertible Grayscale.

IEEE Trans Vis Comput Graph 2021 Jun 11;PP. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Invertible grayscale is a special kind of grayscale from which the original color can be recovered. Given an input color image, this seminal work tries to hide the color information into its grayscale counterpart while making it hard to recognize any anomalies. This powerful functionality is enabled by training a hiding sub-network and restoring sub-network in an end-to-end way. Read More

Adaptive adversarial neural networks for the analysis of lossy and domain-shifted datasets of medical images.

Nat Biomed Eng 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Division of Engineering in Medicine, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

In machine learning for image-based medical diagnostics, supervised convolutional neural networks are typically trained with large and expertly annotated datasets obtained using high-resolution imaging systems. Moreover, the network's performance can degrade substantially when applied to a dataset with a different distribution. Here, we show that adversarial learning can be used to develop high-performing networks trained on unannotated medical images of varying image quality. Read More

Deep Cross-User Models Reduce the Training Burden in Myoelectric Control.

Front Neurosci 2021 24;15:657958. Epub 2021 May 24.

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada.

The effort, focus, and time to collect data and train EMG pattern recognition systems is one of the largest barriers to their widespread adoption in commercial applications. In addition to multiple repetitions of motions, including exemplars of confounding factors during the training protocol has been shown to be critical for robust machine learning models. This added training burden is prohibitive for most regular use cases, so cross-user models have been proposed that could leverage inter-repetition variability supplied by other users. Read More

Synthesizing PET/MR (T1-weighted) images from non-attenuation-corrected PET images.

Phys Med Biol 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Paul C. Lauterbur Research Centre for Biomedical Imaging, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1068 Xueyuan Avenue, Shenzhen University Town, Shenzhen, P.R.China, Shenzhen, 518055, CHINA.

Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging can be used for early detection, diagnosis and postoperative patient monitoring of many diseases. Traditional PET imaging requires not only additional computed tomography (CT) imaging or magnetic resonance imaging (MR) to provide anatomical information but also attenuation correction (AC) map calculation based on CT images or MR images for accurate quantitative estimation. During a patient's treatment, PET/CT or PET/MR scans are inevitably repeated many times, leading to additional doses of ionizing radiation (CT scans) and additional economic and time costs (MR scans).

Domain Shift Preservation for Zero-Shot Domain Adaptation.

IEEE Trans Image Process 2021 11;30:5505-5517. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

In learning-based image processing a model that is learned in one domain often performs poorly in another since the image samples originate from different sources and thus have different distributions. Domain adaptation techniques alleviate the problem of domain shift by learning transferable knowledge from the source domain to the target domain. Zero-shot domain adaptation (ZSDA) refers to a category of challenging tasks in which no target-domain sample for the task of interest is accessible for training. Read More

Adversarial orthogonal regression: Two non-linear regressions for causal inference.

Neural Netw 2021 May 20;143:66-73. Epub 2021 May 20.

Department of Philosophy, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, United States. Electronic address:

We propose two nonlinear regression methods, namely, Adversarial Orthogonal Regression (AdOR) for additive noise models and Adversarial Orthogonal Structural Equation Model (AdOSE) for the general case of structural equation models. Both methods try to make the residual of regression independent from regressors, while putting no assumption on noise distribution. In both methods, two adversarial networks are trained simultaneously where a regression network outputs predictions and a loss network that estimates mutual information (in AdOR) and KL-divergence (in AdOSE).

Department of Geoinformatics, Maritime University of Szczecin, Waly Chrobrego 1-2, 70-500 Szczecin, Poland.

With the majority of research, in relation to 3D object reconstruction, focusing on single static synthetic object reconstruction, there is a need for a method capable of reconstructing morphing objects in dynamic scenes without external influence. However, such research requires a time-consuming creation of real world object ground truths. To solve this, we propose a novel three-staged deep adversarial neural network architecture capable of denoising and refining real-world depth sensor input for full human body posture reconstruction.

Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Institute of Electronics, Information Engineering and Telecommunications (IEIIT), 16149 Genoa, Italy.

The application of machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques in the medical world is growing, with a range of purposes: from the identification and prediction of possible diseases to patient monitoring and clinical decision support systems. Furthermore, the widespread use of remote monitoring medical devices, under the umbrella of the "Internet of Medical Things" (IoMT), has simplified the retrieval of patient information as they allow continuous monitoring and direct access to data by healthcare providers. However, due to possible issues in real-world settings, such as loss of connectivity, irregular use, misuse, or poor adherence to a monitoring program, the data collected might not be sufficient to implement accurate algorithms.
