    Multi-modal medical images can provide clinicians with rich information of target areas (such as tumors, organs or tissues). However, effective fusion and segmentation of multi-modal images is still a challenging problem due to the independence and complementarity of multi-modal images. Traditional image fusion methods have difficulty in addressing this problem, leading to widespread research on deep learning-based multi-modal medical image segmentation algorithms. The multi-modal medical image segmentation task based on deep learning was reviewed in terms of principles, techniques, problems, and prospects.

    U-shaped Network (U-Net) based on Fully Convolutional Network (FCN) is widely used as the backbone of medical image segmentation models, but Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is not good at capturing long-range dependency, which limits the further performance improvement of segmentation models. To solve the above problem, researchers have applied Transformer to medical image segmentation models to make up for the deficiency of CNN, and U-shaped segmentation networks combining Transformer have become the hot research topics. After a detailed introduction of U-Net and Transformer, the related medical image segmentation models were categorized by the position in which the Transformer module was located, including only in the encoder or decoder, both in the encoder and decoder, as a skip-connection, and others, the basic contents, design concepts and possible improvement aspects about these models were discussed, the advantages and disadvantages of having Transformer in different positions were also analyzed. According to the analysis results, it can be seen that the biggest factor to decide the position of Transformer is the characteristics of the target segmentation task, and the segmentation models of Transformer combined with U-Net can make better use of the advantages of CNN and Transformer to improve segmentation performance of models, which has great development prospect and research value.

    Decoding motor imagery EEG (ElectroEncephaloGraphy) signal is one of the crucial techniques for building Brain Computer Interface (BCI) system. Due to EEG signal’s high cost of acquisition, large inter-subject discrepancy, and characteristics of strong time variability and low signal-to-noise ratio, constructing cross-subject pattern recognition methods become the key problem of such study. To solve the existing problem, a cross-subject dynamic multi-domain adversarial learning method was proposed. Firstly, the covariance matrix alignment method was used to align the given EEG samples. Then, a global discriminator was adapted for marginal distribution of different domains, and multiple class-wise local discriminators were adapted to conditional distribution for each class. The self-adaptive adversarial factor for multi-domain discriminator was automatically learned during training iterations. Based on dynamic multi-domain adversarial learning strategy, the Dynamic Multi-Domain Adversarial Network (DMDAN) model could learn deep features with generalization ability between cross-subject domains. Experimental results on public BCI Competition IV 2A and 2B datasets show that, DMDAN model improves the ability of learning domain-invariant features, achieving 1.80 and 2.52 percentage points higher average classification accuracy on dataset 2A and dataset 2B compared with the existing adversarial learning method Deep Representation Domain Adaptation (DRDA).

    Text classification tasks usually rely on sufficient labeled data. Concerning the over-fitting problem of classification models on samples with small size in low resource scenarios, a few-shot text classification method based on prompt learning called BERT-P-Tuning was proposed. Firstly, the pre-trained model BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) was used to learn the optimal prompt template from labeled samples. Then, the prompt template and vacancy were filled in each sample, and the text classification task was transformed into the cloze test task. Finally, the final labels were obtained by predicting the word with the highest probability of the vacant positions and combining the mapping relationship between it and labels. Experimental results on the short text classification tasks of public dataset FewCLUE show that the proposed method have significantly improved the evaluation indicators compared to the BERT fine-tuning based method. In specific, the proposed method has the accuracy and F1 score increased by 25.2 and 26.7 percentage points respectively on the binary classification task, and the proposed method has the accuracy and F1 score increased by 6.6 and 8.0 percentage points respectively on the multi-class classification task. Compared with the PET (Pattern Exploiting Training) method of constructing templates manually, the proposed method has the accuracy increased by 2.9 and 2.8 percentage points respectively on two tasks, and the F1 score increased by 4.4 and 4.2 percentage points respectively on two tasks. The above verifies the effectiveness of applying pre-trained model on few-shot tasks.

    To address the privacy leakage problem caused by the model parameters memorizing some features of the data during the training process of the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) models, a Gradient Descent with Momentum algorithm based on Differential Privacy in CNN (DPGDM) was proposed. Firstly, the Gaussian noise meeting differential privacy was added to the gradient in the backpropagation process of model optimization, and the noise-added gradient value was used to participate in the model parameter update process, so as to achieve differential privacy protection for the overall model. Secondly, to reduce the impact of the introduction of differential privacy noise on convergence speed of the model, a learning rate decay strategy was designed and then the gradient descent with momentum algorithm was improved. Finally, to reduce the influence of noise on the accuracy of the model, the value of the noise scale was adjusted dynamically during model optimization, thereby changing the amount of noise that needs to be added to the gradient in each round of iteration. Experimental results show that compared with DP-SGD (Differentially Private Stochastic Gradient Descent) algorithm, the proposed algorithm can improve the accuracy of the model by about 5 and 4 percentage points at privacy budget of 0.3 and 0.5, respectively, proving that by using the proposed algorithm, the model usability is improved and privacy protection of the model is achieved.

    In recent years, researchers have proposed many improved model architecture designs for Graph Neural Network (GNN), driving performance improvements in various prediction tasks. But most GNN variants start with the assumption that node features are equally important, which is not the case. To solve this problem, a feature selection method was proposed to improve the existing model and select important feature subsets for the dataset. The proposed method consists of two components, a feature selection layer, and a separate label-feature mapping. Softmax normalizer and feature “soft selector” were used for feature selection in the feature selection layer, and the model structure was designed under the idea of separate label-feature mapping to select the corresponding subsets of related features for different labels, and multiple related feature subsets were performed union operation to obtain an important feature subset of the final dataset. Graph ATtention network (GAT) and GATv2 models were selected as the benchmark models, and the algorithm was applied to the benchmark models to obtain new models. Experimental results show that when the proposed models perform node classification tasks on six datasets, their accuracies are improved by 0.83% - 8.79% compared with the baseline models. The new models also select the corresponding important feature subsets for the six datasets, in which the number of features accounts for 3.94% - 12.86% of the total number of features in their respective datasets. After using the important feature subset as the new input of the benchmark model, the accuracy more than 95% (using all features) is still achieved. That is, the scale of the model is reduced while ensuring the accuracy. It can be seen that the proposed new algorithm can improve the accuracy of node classification, and can effectively select the corresponding important feature subset for the dataset.

    When the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) cluster attacks ground targets, it will be divided into two formations: a strike UAV cluster that attacks the targets and a auxiliary UAV cluster that pins down the enemy. When auxiliary UAVs choose the action strategy of aggressive attack or saving strength, the mission scenario is similar to a public goods game where the benefits to the cooperator are less than those to the betrayer. Based on this, a decision method for cooperative combat of UAV clusters based on deep reinforcement learning was proposed. First, by building a public goods game based UAV cluster combat model, the interest conflict problem between individual and group in cooperation of intelligent UAV clusters was simulated. Then, Muti-Agent Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (MADDPG) algorithm was used to solve the most reasonable combat decision of the auxiliary UAV cluster to achieve cluster victory with minimum loss cost. Training and experiments were performed under conditions of different numbers of UAV. The results show that compared to the training effects of two algorithms — IDQN (Independent Deep Q-Network) and ID3QN (Imitative Dueling Double Deep Q-Network), the proposed algorithm has the best convergence, its winning rate can reach 100% with four auxiliary UAVs, and it also significantly outperforms the comparison algorithms with other UAV numbers.

    Federated Learning (FL) emerges as a novel privacy-preserving Machine Learning (ML) paradigm. However, the distributed training structure of FL is more vulnerable to poisoning attack, where adversaries contaminate the global model through uploading poisoning models, resulting in the convergence deceleration and the prediction accuracy degradation of the global model. To solve the above problem, a poisoning attack detection scheme based on Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) was proposed. Firstly, the benign local models were fed into the GAN to output testing samples. Then, the testing samples were used to detect the local models uploaded by the clients. Finally, the poisoning models were eliminated according to the testing metrics. Meanwhile, two test metrics named F1 score loss and accuracy loss were defined to detect the poisoning models and extend the detection scope from one single type of poisoning attacks to all types of poisoning attacks. Besides, a threshold determination method was designed to deal with misjudgment, so that the robust of misjudgment was confirmed. Experimental results on MNIST and Fashion-MNIST datasets show that the proposed scheme can generate high-quality testing samples, and then detect and eliminate poisoning models. Compared with the global models trained with the detection scheme based on directly gathering test data from clients and the detection scheme based on generating test data and using test accuracy as the test metric, the global model trained with the proposed scheme has significant accuracy improvement from 2.7 to 12.2 percentage points.

    Aiming at the problem of small object miss detection in object detection process, an improved YOLOv5 (You Only Look Once) object detection algorithm based on attention mechanism and multi-scale context information was proposed. Firstly, Multiscale Dilated Separable Convolutional Module (MDSCM) was added to the feature extraction structure to extract multi-scale feature information, increasing the receptive field while avoiding the loss of small object information. Secondly, the attention mechanism was added to the backbone network, and the location awareness information was embedded in the channel information, so as to further enhance the feature expression ability of the algorithm. Finally, Soft-NMS (Soft-Non-Maximum Suppression) was used instead of the NMS (Non-Maximum Suppression) used by YOLOv5 to reduce the missed detection rate of the algorithm. Experimental results show that the improved algorithm achieves detection precisions of 82.80%, 71.74% and 77.11% respectively on PASCAL VOC dataset, DOTA aerial image dataset and DIOR optical remote sensing dataset, which are 3.70, 1.49 and 2.48 percentage points higer than those of YOLOv5, and it has better detection effect on small objects. Therefore, the improved YOLOv5 can be better applied to small object detection scenarios in practice.

    Unsupervised relation extraction aims to extract the semantic relations between entities from unlabeled natural language text. Currently, unsupervised relation extraction models based on Variational Auto-Encoder (VAE) architecture provide supervised signals to train model through reconstruction loss, which offers a new idea to complete unsupervised relation extraction tasks. Focusing on the issue that this kind of models cannot understand contextual information effectively and relies on dataset inductive biases, a Prompt-based learning based Unsupervised Relation Extraction (PURE) model was proposed, including a relation extraction module and a link prediction module. In the relation extraction module, a context-aware Prompt template function was designed to fuse the contextual information, and the unsupervised relation extraction task was converted into a mask prediction task, so as to make full use of the knowledge obtained during pre-training phase to extract relations. In the link prediction module, supervised signals were provided for the relation extraction module by predicting the missing entities in the triples to assist model training. Extensive experiments on two public real-world relation extraction datasets were carried out. The results show that PURE model can use contextual information effectively and does not rely on dataset inductive biases, and has the evaluation index B-cubed F1 improved by 3.3 percentage points on NYT dataset compared with the state-of-the-art VAE architecture-based model UREVA (Variational Autoencoder-based Unsupervised Relation Extraction model).

    Deep learning based algorithms such as YOLO (You Only Look Once) and Faster Region-Convolutional Neural Network (Faster R-CNN) require a huge amount of training data to ensure the precision of the model, and it is difficult to obtain data and the cost of labeling data is high in many scenarios. And due to the lack of massive training data, the detection range is limited. Aiming at the above problems, a few-shot object Detection algorithm based on Siamese Network was proposed, namely SiamDet, with the purpose of training an object detection model with certain generalization ability by using a few annotated images. Firstly, a Siamese network based on depthwise separable convolution was proposed, and a feature extraction network ResNet-DW was designed to solve the overfitting problem caused by insufficient samples. Secondly, an object detection algorithm SiamDet was proposed based on Siamese network, and based on ResNet-DW, Region Proposal Network (RPN) was introduced to locate the interested objects. Thirdly, binary cross entropy loss was introduced for training, and contrast training strategy was used to increase the distinction among categories. Experimental results show that SiamDet has good object detection ability for few-shot objects, and SiamDet improves AP50 by 4.1% on MS-COCO 20-way 2-shot and 2.6% on PASCAL VOC 5-way 5-shot compared with the suboptimal algorithm DeFRCN (Decoupled Faster R-CNN).

    To address the problem that traditional PhotoVoltaic (PV) power prediction models are affected by random power fluctuation and tend to ignore important information, resulting in low prediction accuracy, ADDPG and ARDPG models were proposed by combining the attention mechanism with Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (DDPG) and Recurrent Deterministic Policy Gradient (RDPG), respectively, and a PV power prediction framework was proposed on this basis. Firstly, the original PV power data and meteorological data were normalized, and the PV power prediction problem was modeled as a Markov Decision Process (MDP), where the historical power data and current meteorological data were used as the states of MDP. Then the attention mechanism was added to the Actor networks of DDPG and RDPG, giving different weights to different components of the state to highlight important and critical information, and learning critical information in the data through the interaction of Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) agents and historical data. Finally, the MDP problem was solved to obtain the optimal strategy and make accurate prediction. Experimental results on DKASC and Alice Springs PV system data show that ADDPG and ARDPG achieve the best results in Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), Mean Absolute Error (MAE) and R2. It can be seen that the proposed models can effectively improve the prediction accuracy of PV power, and can also be extended to other prediction fields such as grid prediction and wind power generation prediction.

    Traditional multidimensional scaling method achieves low-dimensional embedding, which maintains the topological structure of data points but ignores the discriminability of the low-dimensional embedding itself. Based on this, an unsupervised discriminative feature learning method based on multidimensional scaling method named Discriminative MultiDimensional Scaling model (DMDS) was proposed to discover the cluster structure while learning the low-dimensional data representation. DMDS can make the low-dimensional embeddings of the same cluster closer to make the learned data representation be more discriminative. Firstly, a new objective function corresponding to DMDS was designed, reflecting that the learned data representation could maintain the topology and enhance discriminability simultaneously. Secondly, the objective function was reasoned and solved, and a corresponding iterative optimization algorithm was designed according to the reasoning process. Finally, comparison experiments were carried out on twelve public datasets in terms of average accuracy and average purity of clustering. Experimental results show that DMDS outperforms the original data representation and the traditional multidimensional scaling model based on the comprehensive evaluation of Friedman statistics, the low-dimensional embeddings learned by DMDS are more discriminative.

    Journal of Computer Applications    2023, 43 (9): 2651-2656.   DOI: 10.11772/j.issn.1001-9081.2022091394

    Current deep multi-view clustering methods have the following shortcomings: 1) When feature extraction is carried out for a single view, only attribute information or structural information of the samples is considered, and these two types of information are not integrated. Thus, the extracted features cannot fully represent latent structure of the original data. 2) Feature extraction and clustering were divided into two separated processes, without establishing the relationship between them, so that the feature extraction process cannot be optimized by the clustering process. To solve these problems, a Deep Fusion based Multi-view Clustering Network (DFMCN) was proposed. Firstly, the embedding space of each view was obtained by combining autoencoder and graph convolution autoencoder to fuse attribute information and structure information of samples. Then, the embedding space of the fusion view was obtained through weighted fusion, and clustering was carried out in this space. And in the process of clustering, the feature extraction process was optimized by a two-layer self-supervision mechanism. Experimental results on FM (Fashion-MNIST), HW (HandWritten numerals), and YTF (YouTube Face) datasets show that the accuracy of DFMCN is higher than those of all comparison methods; and DFMCN has the accuracy increased by 1.80 percentage points compared with the suboptimal CMSC-DCCA (Cross-Modal Subspace Clustering via Deep Canonical Correlation Analysis) method on FM dataset, the Normalized Mutual Information (NMI) of DFMCN is increased by 1.26 to 14.84 percentage points compared to all methods except for CMSC-DCCA and DMSC (Deep Multimodal Subspace Clustering networks). Experimental results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is flexible and easy to deploy, and can assist Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) to help wireless systems improve coverage and communication quality. However, there are challenges such as computational latency requirements and resource management in the research of UAV-assisted MEC systems. Aiming at the delay problem of UAV providing auxiliary calculation services to multiple ground terminals, a Twin Delayed Deep Deterministic policy gradient (TD3) based Task Offloading Algorithm for Delay Minimization (TD3-TOADM) was proposed. Firstly, the optimization problem was modeled as the problem of minimizing the maximum computational delay under energy constraints. Secondly, TD3-TOADM was used to jointly optimize terminal equipment scheduling, UAV trajectory and task offloading ratio to minimize the maximum computational delay. Simulation analysis results show that compared with the task offloading algorithms based on Actor-Critic (AC), Deep Q-Network (DQN) and Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (DDPG), TD3-TOADM reduces the computational delay by more than 8.2%. It can be seen that TD3-TOADM algorithm has good convergence and robustness, and can obtain the optimal offloading strategy with low delay.

    Aiming at the high computational complexity and large memory consumption of the existing super-resolution reconstruction networks, a lightweight image super-resolution reconstruction network based on Transformer-CNN was proposed, which made the super-resolution reconstruction network more suitable to be applied on embedded terminals such as mobile platforms. Firstly, a hybrid block based on Transformer-CNN was proposed, which enhanced the ability of the network to capture local-global depth features. Then, a modified inverted residual block, with special attention to the characteristics of the high-frequency region, was designed, so that the improvement of feature extraction ability and reduction of inference time were realized. Finally, after exploring the best options for activation function, the GELU (Gaussian Error Linear Unit) activation function was adopted to further improve the network performance. Experimental results show that the proposed network can achieve a good balance between image super-resolution performance and network complexity, and reaches inference speed of 91 frame/s on the benchmark dataset Urban100 with scale factor of 4, which is 11 times faster than the excellent network called SwinIR (Image Restoration using Swin transformer), indicates that the proposed network can efficiently reconstruct the textures and details of the image and reduce a significant amount of inference time.

    Two optimization methods for quantum simulator implemented on Sunway supercomputer were proposed aiming at the problems of gradual scaling of quantum hardware and insufficient classical simulation speed. Firstly, the tensor contraction operator library SWTT was reconstructed by improving the tensor transposition strategy and computation strategy, which improved the computing kernel efficiency of partial tensor contraction and reduced redundant memory access. Secondly, the balance between complexity and efficiency of path computation was achieved by the contraction path adjustment method based on data locality optimization. Test results show that the improvement method of operator library can improve the simulation efficiency of the "Sycamore" quantum supremacy circuit by 5.4% and the single-step tensor contraction efficiency by up to 49.7 times; the path adjustment method can improve the floating-point efficiency by about 4 times with the path computational complexity inflated by a factor of 2. The two optimization methods have the efficiencies of single-precision and mixed-precision floating-point operations for the simulation of Google’s 53-bit, 20-layer quantum chip random circuit with a million amplitude sampling improved from 3.98% and 1.69% to 18.48% and 7.42% respectively, and reduce the theoretical estimated simulation time from 470 s to 226 s for single-precision and 304 s to 134 s for mixed-precision, verifying that the two methods significantly improve the quantum computational simulation speed.

    For the current water conservancy dams mainly rely on manual on-site inspections, which have high operating costs and low efficiency, an improved detection algorithm based on YOLOv5 was proposed. Firstly, a modified multi-scale visual Transformer structure was used to improve the backbone, and the multi-scale global information associated with the multi-scale Transformer structure and the local information extracted by Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) were used to construct the aggregated features, thereby making full use of the multi-scale semantic information and location information to improve the feature extraction capability of the network. Then, coordinate attention mechanism was added in front of each feature detection layer of the network to encode features in the height and width directions of the image, and long-distance associations of pixels on the feature map were constructed by the encoded features to enhance the target localization ability of the network in complex environments. The sampling algorithm of the positive and negative training samples of the network was improved to help the candidate positive samples to respond to the prior frames of similar shape to themselves by constructing the average fit and difference between the prior frames and the ground-truth frames, so as to make the network converge faster and better, thus improving the overall performance of the network and the network generalization. Finally, the network structure was lightened for application requirements and was optimized by pruning the network structure and structural re-parameterization. Experimental results show that on the current adopted dam disease data, compared with the original YOLOv5s algorithm, the improved network has the mAP (mean Average Precision)@0.5 improved by 10.5 percentage points, the mAP@0.5:0.95 improved by 17.3 percentage points; compared to the network before lightening, the lightweight network has the number of parameters and the FLOPs(FLoating point Operations Per second) reduced by 24% and 13% respectively, and the detection speed improved by 42%, verifying that the network meets the requirements for precision and speed of disease detection in current application scenarios.

    Many of the existing multi-view clustering algorithms lack the ability to estimate the reliability of different views and thus weight the views accordingly, and some multi-view clustering algorithms with view-weighting ability generally rely on the iterative optimization of specific objective function, whose real-world applications may be significantly influenced by the practicality of the objective function and the rationality of tuning some sensitive hyperparameters. To address these problems, a Multi-view Ensemble Clustering algorithm based on View-wise Mutual Information Weighting (MEC-VMIW) was proposed, whose overall process consists of two phases: the view-wise mutual weighting phase and the multi-view ensemble clustering phase. In the view-wise mutual weighting phase, multiple random down-samplings were performed to the dataset, so as to reduce the problem size in the evaluating and weighting process. After that, a set of down-sampled clusterings of multiple views was constructed. And, based on multiple runs of mutual evaluation among the clustering results of different views, the view-wise reliability was estimated and used for view weighting. In the multi-view ensemble clustering phase, the ensemble of base clusterings was constructed for each view, and multiple base clustering sets were weighted to model a bipartite graph structure. By performing efficient bipartite graph partitioning, the final multi-view clustering results were obtained. Experiments on several multi-view datasets confirm the robust clustering performance of the proposed multi-view ensemble clustering algorithm.

    Clustering analysis can uncover hidden interconnections between data and segment the data according to multiple indicators, which can facilitate personalized and refined operations. However, data fragmentation and isolation caused by data islands seriously affects the effectiveness of cluster analysis applications. To solve data island problem and protect data privacy, an Equivalent Local differential privacy Federated K-means (ELFedKmeans) algorithm was proposed. A grid-based initial cluster center selection method and a privacy budget allocation scheme were designed for the horizontal federation learning model. To generate same random noise with lower communication cost, all organizations jointly negotiated random seeds, protecting local data privacy. The ELFedKmeans algorithm was demonstrated satisfying differential privacy protection through theoretical analysis, and it was also compared with Local Differential Privacy distributed K-means (LDPKmeans) algorithm and Hybrid Privacy K-means (HPKmeans) algorithm on different datasets. Experimental results show that all three algorithms increase F-measure and decrease SSE (Sum of Squares due to Error) gradually as privacy budget increases. As a whole, the F-measure values of ELFedKmeans algorithm was 1.794 5% to 57.066 3% and 21.245 2% to 132.048 8% higher than those of LDPKmeans and HPKmeans algorithms respectively; the Log(SSE) values of ELFedKmeans algorithm were 1.204 2% to 12.894 6% and 5.617 5% to 27.575 2% less than those of LDPKmeans and HPKmeans algorithms respectively. With the same privacy budget, ELFedKmeans algorithm outperforms the comparison algorithms in terms of clustering quality and utility metric.

    Infrared small targets occupy few pixels and lack features such as color, texture and shape, so it is difficult to track them effectively. To solve this problem, an infrared small target tracking method based on state information was proposed. Firstly, the target, background and distractors in the local area of the small target to be detected were encoded to obtain dense local state information between consecutive frames. Secondly, feature information of the current and the previous frames were input into the classifier to obtain the classification score. Thirdly, the state information and the classification score were fused to obtain the final degree of confidence and determine the center position of the small target to be detected. Finally, the state information was updated and propagated between the consecutive frames. After that, the propagated state information was used to track the infrared small target in the entire sequences. The proposed method was validated on an open dataset DIRST (Dataset for Infrared detection and tRacking of dim-Small aircrafT). Experimental results show that for infrared small target tracking, the recall of the proposed method reaches 96.2%, and the precision of the method reaches 97.3%, which are 3.7% and 3.7% higher than those of the current best tracking method KeepTrack. It proves that the proposed method can effectively complete the tracking of small infrared targets under complex background and interference.

    For the problem of over-smoothing in the existing recommendation algorithms based on Graph Neural Network (GNN), a collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm based on deep GCN was proposed, namely Deep NGCF (Deep Neural Graph Collaborative Filtering). In the algorithm, the initial residual connection and identity mapping were introduced into GNN, which avoided GNN from falling into over-smoothing after multiple graph convolution operations. Firstly, the initial embeddings of users and items were obtained through their interaction history. Next, in aggregation and propagation layer, collaborative signals of users and items in different stages were obtained with the use of initial residual connection and identity mapping. Finally, score prediction was performed according to the linear representation of all collaborative signals. In addition, to further improve the flexibility and recommendation performance of the model, the weights were set in the initial residual connection and identity mapping for adjustment. In order to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of Deep NGCF algorithm, experiments were conducted on datasets Gowalla, Yelp-2018 and Amazon-book. The results show that compared with the existing GNN recommendation algorithm such as Graph Convolutional Matrix Completion (GCMC) and Neural Graph Collaborate Filtering (NGCF), Deep NGCF algorithm achieves the best results on recall and Normalized Discounted Cumulative Gain (NDCG), thereby verifying the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

    The development of hot news events is very rich, and each stage of the development has its own unique narrative. With the development of events, a trend of hierarchical storyline evolution is presented. Aiming at the problem of poor interpretability and insufficient hierarchy of storyline in the existing storyline generation methods, a Hierarchical Storyline Generation Method (HSGM) for hot news events was proposed. First, an improved hotword algorithm was used to select the main seed events to construct the trunk. Second, the hotwords of branch events were selected to enhance the branch interpretability. Third, in the branch, a storyline coherence selection strategy fusing hotword relevance and dynamic time penalty was used to enhance the connection of parent-child events, so as to build hierarchical hotwords, and then a multi-level storyline was built. In addition, considering the incubation period of hot news events, a hatchery was added during the storyline construction process to solve the problem of neglecting the initial events due to insufficient hotness. Experimental results on two real self-constructed datasets show that in the event tracking process, compared with the methods based on singlePass and k-means respectively, HSGM has the F score increased by 4.51% and 6.41%, 20.71% and 13.01% respectively; in the storyline construction process, HSGM performs well in accuracy, comprehensibility and integrity on two self-constructed datasets compared with Story Forest and Story Graph.

    Focused on the existing diagnosis methods of Parkinson's Disease (PD), the auxiliary diagnosis methods of PD based on gait analysis was reviewed. In clinical practice, the common diagnosis method of gait assessment for PD is based on scales, which is simple and convenient, but is highly subjective and requires well-experienced clinical doctors. With the development of computer technology, more methods of gait analysis are provided. Firstly, PD and its abnormal manifestations in gait were summarized. Then, the common methods of auxiliary diagnosis for PD based on gait analysis were reviewed. These methods were able to be roughly divided into two types: methods based on wearable or non-wearable devices. Wearable devices are small and have high accuracy for diagnosis, and with the use of them, the gait status of patients can be monitored for a long time. With the use of non-wearable devices, human gait data is captured through video sensors such as Microsoft Kinect, without wearing related devices and restricting patients' movements. Finally, the deficiencies in the existing gait analysis methods were pointed out, and the possible development trends in the future were discussed.
