3. Representative Research Achievements
Achievement 1—Brain-like computing and brain-computer interface
The number of training samples that are available on the internet to train pattern classifiers is increasing rapidly, while traditional pattern classification techniques based on a single computer system are powerless to process these large-scale data sets. In brain-like computing research, we have developed a parallel and modular pattern classification framework for coping with large-scale pattern classification problems. The proposed framework follows a divide-and-conquer strategy that easily assigns a given large-scale problem to an available parallel and distributed computing infrastructure. The framework consists of three independent parts: decomposing training data sets, training component classifiers in a parallel way, and combining trained component classifiers. Various experimental results show that our framework has the following attractive features: (a) The framework is general, and therefore any traditional pattern classification techniques such as support vector machines can be easily embedded in the framework as component classifiers. (b) The framework can incorporate explicit domain or prior knowledge into learning through the process of dividing training data sets. (c) The framework has good scalability and is easily implementable in hardware.
Brain-computer interface (BCI) is emerging technology of establishing direct link between human intentions and devices, allowing people to communicate and control devices in their environment without using the peripheral neural system but instead through the use of signals from the brain. The BCI project is to investigate the fundamental electroneurophysiologic mechanism, communication protocols, cognitive task-related electroencephalogram (EEG) feature analysis, pattern classification, neurofeed-back and typical applications. To develop a natural BCI interfaces, we investigate how the duration of event-related desynchronization/synchronization caused by motor imagery can be modulated and used as an additional control parameter beyond simple binary decisions. Furthermore, using the non-time-locked properties of sustained (de)synchronization, we have developed an asynchronous BCI system for driving a car in 3D virtual reality environment based on cumulative incremental control strategy. The extensive real time experiments confirmed that our new approach is able to drive smoothly a virtual car within challenging VRE only by the MI tasks without involving any muscular activities.
To develop robust feature extraction method for single trial EEG classification, we propose a novel tensor-based scheme which performs well without using the prior neurophysiologic knowledge. In this scheme, EEG signals are represented in the spatial-spectral-temporal domain by the wavelet transform, the multilinear discriminative subspace is reserved by the general tensor discriminant analysis, redundant indiscriminative patterns are removed by Fisher score, and the classification is conducted by the support vector machine.

Achievement 2—Data Mining and Web Search
Traditional machine learning techniques make a basic assumption that the training and test data should be under the same distributions. However, in many cases, this identical distribution assumption does not hold. The violation of the assumption might happen when the training data are out of date, but new data are expensive to label. This leaves plenty of labeled examples that are under a similar but different distribution, which is a waste throw away entirely. In this situation, transfer learning becomes important to take the role of leveraging these existing data knowledge. Transfer learning aims at using learned knowledge from one context to benefit further learning tasks in other contexts. Thus, transfer learning does not make the identical distribution assumption as traditional machine learning algorithms.
In Web search area, we focused on how to do personalized Web search in this area. We propose to use social behavior to solve the two critical issues in personalization: sparseness and cold-start. A novel statistical smoothing algorithm was proposed. We applied the proposed smoothing algorithm to collaborative filtering and the experimental results show that our approach can help to alleviate the two challenge issues. Furthermore, we extended the algorithm with language model and apply to the personalized search area. A user language model is proposed to solve the difficult issue of user modeling. Finally, with the emerged of Web 2.0, we proposed the effective algorithms by integrating the social behaviors into the general Web search.
In recent years, the amount of structured data available on the Web has been increasing rapidly. In order to collect more high-quality structured data, we mainly focus on knowledge extraction. In particular, we pay much attention to automatically extract such data from Web 2.0 social corpus like Del.icio.us, Flickr and Wikipedia. In order to efficiently manage large amounts data, we consider to leverage the strengths of both database and information retrieval to build scalable triple stores. In addition, in order to attract more casual users to use semantic search engines, we further developed natural language interface as well as keyword query interface to improve the usability.
In Web mining research, most of mining researches were focused on homogenous data objects. Actually, heterogeneous Web objects are more representative in current Web environment. In such environment, we propose heterogeneous Web mining research. Three research directions on heterogeneous Web mining were proposed: content based heterogeneous Web mining, structure based heterogeneous Web mining and usage based heterogeneous Web mining. Furthermore, we consider the relations from different aspects: hyperlink relation, click relation, hierarchical relation. Several novel algorithms are proposed, such as topic-sensitive(bridged) PLSA, structured learning and structured modeling.

Achievement 3—Computer graphics
We study on the image based reconstruction and rendering techniques, the measurement of BRDF, digital geometry, the composition of videos from different sources and virtual and augmented reality. Based on the scanned CT data of on the teeth, we proposed an efficient motion path planning system for automatic tooth alignment, in which collision detection for teeth movement are considered well. New algorithms are also proposed for accurate segmentation of teeth. We introduce a novel mesh cutout system to efficiently extract meaningful object from a triangular mesh. We propose an efficient method for reconstruction of 3D objects with high specular light and finish a measurement system for obtaining BRDF value of minor object. We propose a robust watermarking scheme called Double-Layer Spread-Transform Dither Modulation (DL-STDM) for watermarking motion data. We propose a modified Laplacian smoothing approach with mesh saliency. Unlike the classical Laplacian smoothing, where every new vertex of the mesh is moved to the barycenter of its neighbors, we set every new vertex position to be the linear interpolation between its primary position and the barycenter of its neighbors.
We also study on the interactive design and invention of animation. Starting from a novel or opera, we create the scenes and branch-scenes based on natural language reasoning, design actors or different roles, generate 3d geometric objects based on constraints and reasoning, produce computer animation, rendering the scenes and composition of different source videos. In the whole procedure and system, an material database plays an important role through out. We also do research on motion capture animation. An efficient algorithm is obtained for motion edit based on analytic IK and multi-resolution motion curve fitting. We solve the human body IK analytically combining with the multi-resolution B-spline curve edit, and real time motion edit can be reached. Motion path editing and modification tool are obtained for animation. Some new algorithms are obtained for image and video segmentation, and composition of different source videos. Some new style of art productions are well applied in the art museum.We have published more than 55 papers and have applied more than 16 national invention patents, in which two patents are awarded.
