Then, an improved weight similarity formula is used for searching to solve the problem of poor computing strategy for similar matching patches. The search range of matching patches gradually increases from small to large until globally searching for similar matching patches to improve the efficiency of inpainting. To further improve the correctness of matching patch selection, this paper uses six levels of priority matching criteria for screening.</p><p>RESULTS: The experimental results show that the inpainting effect of the proposed method is significantly improved in subjective vision, and the structural similarity (SSIM), peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), and inpainting speed of the inpainting results are all improved.</p><p>CONCLUSION: For different types of images, the proposed method has a better inpainting effect and higher inpainting speed than the other three advanced methods.</p> H.

It also plays an important role in video occlusion removal, traffic monitoring and old movie restoration technology. Video inpainting is to obtain reasonable content from the video sequence to fill the missing region, and maintain time continuity and spatial consistency.<br>OBJECTIVES: In previous studies, due to the complexity of the scene of video inpainting, there are often cases of fast motion of objects in the video or motion of background objects, which will lead to optical flow failure. So the current video inpainting algorithm hasn’t met the requirements of practical applications. In order to avoid the problem of optical flow failure, this paper proposes a transformer-guided video inpainting model based on local Spatial-temporal joint.<br>METHODS: First, considering the rich Spatial-temporal relationship between local flows, a Local Spatial-Temporal Joint Network (LSTN) including encoder, decoder and transformer module is designed to roughly inpaint the local corrupted frames, and the Deep Flow Network is used to calculate the local bidirectional corrupted flows. Then, the local corrupted optical flow map is input into the Local Flow Completion Network (LFCN) with pseudo 3D convolution and attention mechanism to obtain a complete set of bidirectional local optical flow maps. Finally, the roughly inpainted local frame and the complete bidirectional local optical flow map are sent to the Spatial-temporal transformer and the inpainted video frame is output.<br>RESULTS: Experiments show that the algorithm achieves high quality results in the video target removal task, and has a certain improvement in indicators compared with advanced technologies.<br>CONCLUSION: Transformer-Guided Video Inpainting Algorithm Based on Local Spatial-Temporal joint can obtain high-quality optical flow information and inpainted result video.</p> Jing Wang, ZongJu Yang Copyright (c) 2023 EAI Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ https://publications.eai.eu/index.php/el/article/view/3156 Tue, 15 Aug 2023 00:00:00 +0000 EEG Emotion Recognition based on Multi scale Self Attention Convolutional Networks https://publications.eai.eu/index.php/el/article/view/3722 <p><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">A multi-view self-attention module is proposed and paired with a multi-scale convolutional model to build</span><br role="presentation" /><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">a multi-view self-attention convolutional network for multi-channel EEG emotion recognition.

PT X is a manufacturing company based on demand or custom. This leads to uncertainty in the use of required materials, so proper forecasting is needed to estimate the material stock requirements. This study used single exponential smoothing and single moving average methods with quantitative approaches to aluminum materials. By calculating forecasting using these two methods, it is possible to find the best method for use by PT X. Based on the test, the SES method has the smallest error rate so it can be used to analyze the data, with α=0.8 yielding a forecast in the 13th month of 308.71408 pcs.</p> Via Rensi Novita Alfa Reza, Ancala Laras Putri Copyright (c) 2023 EAI Endorsed Transactions on e-Learning https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ https://publications.eai.eu/index.php/el/article/view/3709 Wed, 27 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The Power of AI-Assisted Diagnosis https://publications.eai.eu/index.php/el/article/view/3772 <p>The rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) have unleashed a wave of transformative technologies, and one area that has witnessed significant progress is AI-assisted diagnosis in healthcare.
