  • Publication number: 20210093203
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for determining a heart rate and respiratory rate from a radio frequency signal comprises inputting a radio frequency signal obtained from a test subject into a neural network. The method further comprises training the neural network using the radio frequency signal and extracting a heart rate and a respiratory rate from the radio frequency signal using the neural network. Further, the method comprises comparing the heart rate and the respiratory rate extracted from the radio frequency signal to a verifiable heart rate and verifiable respiratory rate for the test subject to compute an error measure. Finally, the method comprises using the error measure to apply back propagation to adjust front end parameters for one or more layers of the neural networks to improve a prediction accuracy of the neural network.

  • Publication number: 20210012150
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a bidirectional attention-based image-text cross-modal retrieval method, applicable for cross-modal retrieval between natural image and electronic text. The present disclosure extracts initial image and text features by using a neural network, and builds a bidirectional attention module to reconstruct the initial image and text features extracted by the neural network, the reconstructed features containing richer semantic information. By using the bidirectional attention module, the present disclosure improves the conventional feature extraction process, obtaining higher-order features with richer image and text semantics, thereby realizing image-text cross-modal retrieval.

  • Publication number: 20200370036
    Abstract: There is described a method for extracting a target chemical compound from a cellular material in a sample. The method comprising the steps of: subjecting the sample to mechanical lysis to cause disruption of a cellular membrane in the cellular material; contacting the sample with an alkaline material to produce a lysate composition comprising the target chemical compound; and recovering the lysate composition from the sample. There is also described a method for producing a lysate composition comprising RNA from a mammalian bodily fluid sample comprising a cellular material. There is also described a method for extracting a nucleic acid from a cellular material in a bodily fluid or an inoculant derived therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20200239835
    Abstract: A method for isolating and/or culturing cambium stem cells of panax ginseng is disclosed. The method comprises a step of treating tissues containing panax ginseng cambium with a compound of formula I. The present application further relates to cambium stem cells of panax ginseng obtained according to the method and use of such cambium stem cells in preparing a product for a suspension culture of panax ginseng. The method for isolating and/or culturing cambium stem cells of panax ginseng according to the present application can effectively separate the cambium stem cells of the panax ginseng which have unlimited cytodieresis ability and strong anti-adversity ability, can provide a basis for ultra-large volume liquid culture, which can significantly reduce production costs.
