A direct observation of the dynamics of Weyl fermions in an experiment is difficult to achieve. This study investigates ... More

Fano resonance in a normal metal/ferromagnet-quantum dot-superconductor deviceSep 16 2015We investigate theoretically the Andreev transport through a quantum dot strongly coupled with a normal metal/ferromagnet and a superconductor (N/F-QD-S), in which the interplay between the Kondo resonance and the Andreev bound states (ABSs) has not been ...

AM-LFS: AutoML for Loss Function SearchMay 17 2019Designing an effective loss function plays an important role in visual analysis. Most existing loss function designs rely on hand-crafted heuristics that require domain experts to explore the large design space, which is usually sub-optimal and time-consuming. ... More

Image Deformation Meta-Networks for One-Shot LearningMay 28 2019Humans can robustly learn novel visual concepts even when images undergo various deformations and loose certain information. Mimicking the same behavior and synthesizing deformed instances of new concepts may help visual recognition systems perform better ... More

A Block Lanczos with Warm Start Technique for Accelerating Nuclear Norm Minimization AlgorithmsDec 02 2010Dec 26 2010Recent years have witnessed the popularity of using rank minimization as a regularizer for various signal processing and machine learning problems. As rank minimization problems are often converted to nuclear norm minimization (NNM) problems, they have ... More

Dixit: Interactive Visual Storytelling via Term ManipulationMar 06 2019May 31 2019In this paper, we introduce Dixit, an interactive visual storytelling system that the user interacts with iteratively to compose a short story for a photo sequence. The user initiates the process by uploading a sequence of photos. Dixit first extracts ... More

Highly Efficient Quantum Key Distribution Immune to All Detector AttacksOct 10 2014Aug 23 2016Vulnerabilities and imperfections of single-photon detectors have been shown to compromise security for quantum key distribution (QKD). The measurement-device-independent QKD (MDI-QKD) appears to be the most appealing solution to solve the issues. However, ... More
