Boosting

View this topic in
Boosting is a machine learning meta-algorithm for performing supervised learning. Boosting is based on the question posed by Kearns: can a set of weak learners create a single strong learner? A weak learner is defined to be a classifier which is only slightly correlated with the true classification (it can label examples better than random guessing). In contrast, a strong learner is a classifier that is arbitrarily well-correlated with the true classification. (Wikipedia.org)

  • A novel method to identify pre-microRNA in various species knowledge base

    More than 1/3 of human genes are regulated by microRNAs. The identification of microRNA (miRNA) is the precondition of discovering the regulatory mechanism of miRNA and developing the cure for genetic diseases. The traditional identification method is biological experiment, but it has the defects of long period, high cost, and missing the miRNAs that only exist in a specific period or low expression level. Therefore, to overcome these defects, machine learning method is applied to identify miRNAs. In this study, for identifying real and pseudo miRNAs and classifying different species, we extracted 98 dimensional features based on the primary and secondary structure, then we proposed the BP-Adaboost method to figure out the overfitting phenomenon of BP neural network by constructing multiple BP neural network classifiers and distributed weights to these classifiers. The novel method we proposed raised the accuracy and the stability. In this study, we verified the effectiveness and superiority over other methods by experiments.

  • Highly robust and sensitive charge transfer sense amplifier for ultra-low voltage DRAMs

    A new charge transfer sense amplifier for low voltage DRAMs is proposed. The proposed charge transfer sense amplifier has two features. One is the double boosting sensing node structure, and the other is the dynamic presensing latch. The double boosting sensing node structure consists of two boosting capacitors. The 1stand 2ndboosting capacitors are placed at the boosting nodes and sensing nodes, respectively. The sensing node and boosting node are connected by a PMOS diode-connected transistor. This structure is efficient in achieving high sensitivity in ultra-low supply voltage conditions. The dynamic presensing latch is placed at the sensing nodes between the bit-line pair. The sensing node voltage difference (ΔVSA) develops by the operation of the dynamic presensing latch. Pull-down/up latch works effectively because ΔVSAis larger than bit-line voltage difference. With a 0.5V power supply voltage using a NCSU 45nm process, the proposed charge transfer sense amplifier brings a significant increase of about 3.89 times in ΔVSAand a decrease of 22.3% in the sensing delay time compared with the characteristics obtained by the best- known prior scheme.

DEF describe the regularity of region by computing the entropy value of edge pointspsila spatial distribution in specific direction, so DEF has the discriminating power for regular and random pattern. We combine histogram of oriented gradient (HOG) feature with DEF to construct a human detection classifier to test DEFpsilas performance. Experimental results show that DEF can help HOG to decreases false alarms caused by random complicated and rigid shaped background.

    A 14KB 8T-bitcell SRAM array is demonstrated in 22nm tri-gate CMOS with fine- grain dual-VCC assist techniques. VMIN limiting 8T-bitcell nodes are boosted selectively during read and write to improve overall chip-VMIN. Measurements show 130-270mV lower VMIN with 27-46% lower power at 0.4-1.6GHz for varying amounts of boosting, array activity and voltage regulator efficiency.

  • Boost-phase acceleration estimation

    Characterizing the boost phase of a rocket's flight is challenging when only metric radar data (range and angles) are used. Incorporating range- acceleration measurements results in superior tracking performance and much improved characterization of boost-phase flight. This paper demonstrates how to estimate range acceleration reliably from the amplitude and phase of the target-reflected radar signal. Phase-derived range-acceleration estimates can be used to tune a tracking filter and can be incorporated into the filter for improved trajectory reconstruction. Range-acceleration measurements can also be used in a multitarget environment to identify boosting targets. These techniques have been used successfully on actual rocket-launch data to improve postmission tracking and object identification performance.

  • High-efficiency voltage regulation stage in energy harvesting systems

    A high-efficiency voltage regulation stage in an energy harvesting system is presented. In an energy harvesting system, the availability of energy is uncertain. If energy is harvested from energy resources, the system operates; if not, the system does not work. Therefore, the energy harvesting system starts and stops repeatedly according to the presence or absence of energy. The repeated on and off state in the energy harvesting system decreases operating efficiency which is an important factor in such a system with the limited amount of harvested energy. To improve the efficiency of the system that repeatedly switch between on and off states, the energy dissipated in the transitional state should be minimized. In this work, a voltage regulation stage is implemented with two additional switches, two low power comparators and digital control logic in addition to the conventional regulation stage. The first switch determines the input voltage level of the regulation stage, and the second switch prevents undesired energy dissipation in the boosting state. When the regulation stage supplies power to a 100 ohm load resistor with a 100 uF load capacitor for 50 ms, the efficiency is improved up to 38%, and boosting time is reduced by 42% in comparison with the conventional regulation structure.

  • A step-down boosted-wordline scheme for 1-V battery-operated fast SRAM's

    Fast and low-power circuit techniques for battery-operated low-voltage SRAM's are described. To shorten the read access time with low power dissipation, the step-down boosted-wordline scheme, which is combined with current-sense amplifiers, is proposed. Boosting a selected-wordline voltage shortens the bitline delay before the stored data are sensed. The power dissipation while selecting a wordline is suppressed by stepping down the selected-wordline potential. Moreover, to reduce the standby power, a switched-capacitor-type boosted-pulse generator, which is controlled by an address transition detection (ATD) signal, is used. A 61 kword/spl times/16-bit organization SRAM test chip was fabricated using the 0.5-/spl mu/m multithreshold-voltage CMOS (MTCMOS) process. The power dissipation in the memory array is reduced to 57% (1 mW) at 10 kHz operation in comparison with the conventional boosted- wordline scheme.
