Real-time semantic segmentation is playing a more important role in computer vision, due to the growing demand for mobile devices and autonomous driving. Therefore, it is very important to achieve a good trade-off among performance, model size and inference speed. In this paper, we propose a Channel-wise Feature Pyramid (CFP) module to balance those factors. Based on the CFP module, we built CFPNet for real-time semantic segmentation which applied a series of dilated convolution channels to extract effective features.


Recently, cloud control systems have gained increasing attention from the research community as a solution to implement networked cyber-physical systems (CPSs). Such an architecture can reduce deployment and maintenance costs albeit at the expense of additional security and privacy concerns. In this paper, first, we discuss state-of-the-art security solutions for cloud control systems and their limitations. Then, we propose a novel control architecture based on Trusted Execution Environments (TEE).


The novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been the most critical global challenge over the past months. Lung involvement quantification and distinguishing the types of infections from chest CT scans can assist in accurate severity assessment of COVID-19 pneumonia, efficient use of limited medical resources, and saving more lives. Nevertheless, visual assessment of chest CT images and evaluating the disease severity by radiologists are expensive and prone to error.


In human-machine systems (HMS), trust placed by humans on machines is a complex concept and attracts increasingly research efforts. Herein, we reviewed recent studies on building and measuring trust in HMS. The review was based on one comprehensive model of trust – IMPACTS, which has 7 features of intention, measurability, performance, adaptivity, communication, transparency, and security. The review found that, in the past 5 years, HMS fulfill the features of intention, measurability, communication, and transparency. Most of the HMS consider the feature of performance.
