Scalable Structure Learning for Probabilistic Soft LogicJul 03 2018Statistical relational frameworks such as Markov logic networks and probabilistic soft logic (PSL) encode model structure with weighted first-order logical clauses. Learning these clauses from data is referred to as structure learning. Structure learning ... More

Random Sequential Renormalization of Networks I: Application to Critical TreesSep 20 2010Mar 23 2011We introduce the concept of Random Sequential Renormalization (RSR) for arbitrary networks. RSR is a graph renormalization procedure that locally aggregates nodes to produce a coarse grained network. It is analogous to the (quasi-)parallel renormalization ... More

A deep learning-based method for prostate segmentation in T2-weighted magnetic resonance imagingJan 27 2019We propose a novel automatic method for accurate segmentation of the prostate in T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
