This work has been accepted as a full paper by CIKM 2016. Non-negative Matrix Factorization is an important mathematical tool for various data mining applications. In this paper, CDIT researchers develop an efficient orthogonal non-negative matrix factorization over Stiefel manifold, which significantly outperforms other state-of-the-art algorithms in terms of convergence speed and clustering performance. Efficient Orthogonal Non-negative Matrix Factorization over […]
Collaborating with researchers from Princeton University and Tsinghua University, we present a work that can accurately decode the hand’s motion by transforming the COTS microphone and speaker of a mobile device into an active sonar system. The paper has been accepted by UbiComp 2016. AudioGest: Enabling Fine-Grained Hand Gesture Detection by Decoding Echo Signals. Wenjie Ruan, Quan Z. Sheng, Lei Yang, […]
The CDIT research on trust management of cloud services has made a news hit!
