Evolving Gaussian Process Autoregression Based Learning of Human Motion Intent Using Improved Energy Kernel Method of EMG
Continuous human motion intent learning may be modeled using a Gaussian process (GP) autoregression based evolving system to cope with the unspecified and time-varying motion patterns. Electromyography (EMG) signals are the primary input. GP is used as a mathematical foundation to model human kinematics by adopting the nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous inputs (NARX) framework, and an evolving system is applied to learn the irregular and unspecified dynamic features. The statistical nature of the GP offers superior flexibility for learning human kinematics and is capable of giving credibility to motion intent prediction, which also enables risk-based control. As an important neuromuscular signal, EMG is processed with a novel method, the energy kernel method, to extract the activation level of muscle and feature out muscular force and motion intent. Without losing robustness, the high signal-to-noise ratio or the linearity level with muscular force, huge improvement has been made in computational efficiency to meet the requirements of real-time applications. Experimental works concerning the validity and application of this method are also presented.
Conclusion: Based on these results NDDS is considered to be an applicable instrument for identifying personality pathology in patients with depressive symptoms, by recognizing the specific pattern. This is thought to be important for adequate treatment planning. PMID: 31517547 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

As a child born in 2018, my little girl has a one in three chance of living to 100. In contrast, as someone born in 1917, Pamela would have been considered lucky to live past 60.
CONCLUSIONS Our results demonstrated a regulation loop among MATAL1, miR-194, and YAP1, which dynamically regulates the progression of AP, providing a new therapeutic target for treatment of this disease. PMID: 31518341 [PubMed - in process]
