Typically, every part in most coherent text has some plausible reason for its presence, some function that it performs to the overall semantics of the text.

Deep neural networks for learning graph representations

no code implementations Thirtieth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence 2016 Shaosheng Cao, Wei Lu, Qiongkai Xu

Different from other previous research efforts, we adopt a random surfing model to capture graph structural information directly, instead of using the sampling-based method for generating linear sequences proposed by Perozzi et al. (2014).

From Competition to Complementarity: Comparative Influence Diffusion and Maximization

We study two natural optimization problems, Self Influence Maximization and Complementary Influence Maximization, in a novel setting with complementary entities.

Replicating Kernels with a Short Stride Allows Sparse Reconstructions with Fewer Independent Kernels

no code implementations17 Jun 2014 Peter F. Schultz, Dylan M. Paiton, Wei Lu, Garrett T. Kenyon

We find, for example, that for 16x16-pixel receptive fields, using eight kernels and a stride of 2 leads to sparse reconstructions of comparable quality as using 512 kernels and a stride of 16 (the nonoverlapping case).
