The edge part and noise of the fuzzy image have great uncertainty, the traditional fuzzy image region segmentation process based on fuzzy logic only considers the uncertainty problem, resulting in ignoring the complexity and correlation of fuzzy image information feature, unable to realize the fuzzy image segmentation efficiently (the paper is focus on how to achieve effective separation), a fuzzy image region segmentation method based on non-robust feature fitting is proposed, to analyze the disadvantages of traditional methods, and fit the non-robust features in the fuzzy image, based on the fitting results of non-robust feature, the optimal cluster number, clustering center and other parameters of the pixel are determined by fuzzy C mean clustering method, on the basis of pixels membership function to segment fuzzy image region. Through regional texture feature, spatial location feature, regional feature color and region shape character to describe the segmentation regions, so as to preserve the segmentation results, and provide basis for future fuzzy image region segmentation. The simulation results show that the proposed segmentation method has high accuracy, and a strong practical value. © 2016 Bentham Science Publishers.

Matching of fuzzy multimedia image has the disadvantage of larger error, a feature matching method for fuzzy multimedia image based on improved SIFT matching is proposed, on the basis of analyzing the shortcomings of the traditional method, multimedia images are preprocessed, and fuzzy space ideology is introduced in the algorithm to simulate all kinds of causes for fuzzy multimedia image, according to results to expand the database image set. Generating SIFT feature descriptors to determine the main direction of the feature points, the fuzzy image is rotated to the main direction and rotation invariance of the blurred image is maintained. Euclidean distance is used to measure the similarity of two vectors, through judging the ratio of the nearest neighbor distance and the second nearest neighbor distance exceeds a certain threshold, so as to determine the nearest adjacent points and the feature is the best match. The simulation results show that, the proposed method has high accuracy. © 2016 Bentham Science Publishers.

With the developing of sensors, remote-sensing platforms and other related technologies, more and more ways to obtain remote-sensing information come forth, as well as the information style. At the same time, the amount of data obtained by means of remote-sensing is rapidly increasing, but many applications need more fast processing of remote-sensing image. Apparently, the traditional singleprocessor serial fusion algorithm couldn't meet the needs of such operations, and parallel is an efficient technical mean to solve this problem. Therefore, the research of parallel algorithm on remotesensing image will greatly enhance the efficiency of image fusion, and it will have broad application prospects. We analyze these requirements in this paper, aiming at the research and implementation of there kinds of parallel algorithms for remote-sensing image fusion processing.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been reported as an attractive source for the generation of transplantable surrogate β cells. The objective of this study was to investigate a new method to induce the differentiation of hMSCs into insulin secretion cells and to explore its molecular mechanisms. In this study, we investigated in vitro differentiation of hMSCs by overexpression of myocardin and pdx-1. Differentiated cells were evaluated by immunocytochemistry, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), quantificational real-time RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) and Western blotting. Furthermore, the molecular mechanisms were evaluated by chip assay, CO-IP and Luciferase assay. This study reported a new method to induce the differentiation of hMSCs into insulin secretion cells. The method is cotransduction of myocardin and pdx-1 for 7. days. At the same time, we find myocardin and pdx-1 can form a complex to promote the transactivities of insulin by affecting the formation of the pdx-1/myocardin/SRF/CArG complex both in vitro and in vitro. The present study provided a simple and faithful in vitro model for further investigating the cell replacement therapy for diabetes. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

In this work, iron-nickel chain-like fibres were prepared via a simple and low cost solvothermal method at 180°C for 10 h. The starting materials of NiCl2.6H2O and FeCl3.6H2O were reduced by hydrazine hydrate in alkaline medium, and ethylene glycol was employed as solvent. The shapes and microstructures of these iron-nickel chain-like fibres were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, high resolution transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Surfactant polyvinylpyrrolidone, temperature and types of solvent were found to be important for the formation of such novel fibres. The magnetic properties were measured by vibrating sample magnetometer, which indicated the ferromagnetic behaviour with saturation magnetisation of 66.3 emu g-1and coercivity of 91.5 Oe. © W. S.
