ActiveCrowd: A Framework for Optimized Multi-Task Allocation in Mobile Crowdsensing SystemsAug 08 2016Worker selection is a key issue in Mobile Crowd Sensing (MCS). While previous worker selection approaches mainly focus on selecting a proper subset of workers for a single MCS task, multi-task-oriented worker selection is essential and useful for the ... More
Decoy state method for measurement device independent quantum key distribution with different intensities in only one basisSep 02 2013We show that the three-intensity protocol for measurement device independent quantum key distribution (MDI QKD) can be done with different light intensities in {\em only one} basis. Given the fact that the exact values yields of single-photon pairs in ... More
Multi-level Attention Model for Weakly Supervised Audio ClassificationMar 06 2018In this paper, we propose a multi-level attention model to solve the weakly labelled audio classification problem. The objective of audio classification is to predict the presence or absence of audio events in an audio clip. Recently, Google published ... More
Scalar perturbations of Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld braneworldJun 15 2017Sep 17 2017We consider the scalar perturbations of Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld braneworld models in this paper. The dynamical equation for the physical propagating degree of freedom $\xi(x^\mu,y)$ is achieved by using the Arnowitt-Deser-Misner decomposition method: ... More
Describing the ADD model in a warped geometryJan 12 2015Oct 26 2018We propose a new description of the (4+N)-dimensional Arkani-Hamed-Dimopoulos-Dvali (ADD) model in a (4+1)-dimensional warped geometry to solve the gauge hierarchy problem. It has the same KK spectrum as in the ADD model and recovers its phenomenons that ... More
