    In the title compound, [Cu(C3H5N)3(C12H18N6)](ClO4)2·2H2O, the CuII atom lies on a threefold rotation axis and is coordinated in a distorted N6 octa­hedral environment by three tertiary amines from the tridentate chelating aza­macrocyclic ligand and three propionitrile mol­ecules. Inter­molecular non-classical C—H⋯N hydrogen bonding inter­links the [Cu(C3H5N)3(C12H18N6)]2+ cations into a two-dimensional supra­molecular sheet extending along the ab plane. The crystal packing also exhibits weak C—H⋯O inter­actions

    ECL: Class-Enhancement Contrastive Learning for Long-tailed Skin Lesion Classification

    Skin image datasets often suffer from imbalanced data distribution, exacerbating the difficulty of computer-aided skin disease diagnosis. Some recent works exploit supervised contrastive learning (SCL) for this long-tailed challenge. Despite achieving significant performance, these SCL-based methods focus more on head classes, yet ignoring the utilization of information in tail classes. In this paper, we propose class-Enhancement Contrastive Learning (ECL), which enriches the information of minority classes and treats different classes equally. For information enhancement, we design a hybrid-proxy model to generate class-dependent proxies and propose a cycle update strategy for parameters optimization. A balanced-hybrid-proxy loss is designed to exploit relations between samples and proxies with different classes treated equally. Taking both "imbalanced data" and "imbalanced diagnosis difficulty" into account, we further present a balanced-weighted cross-entropy loss following curriculum learning schedule. Experimental results on the classification of imbalanced skin lesion data have demonstrated the superiority and effectiveness of our method

    TFormer: A throughout fusion transformer for multi-modal skin lesion diagnosis

    Multi-modal skin lesion diagnosis (MSLD) has achieved remarkable success by modern computer-aided diagnosis technology based on deep convolutions. However, the information aggregation across modalities in MSLD remains challenging due to severity unaligned spatial resolution (dermoscopic image and clinical image) and heterogeneous data (dermoscopic image and patients' meta-data). Limited by the intrinsic local attention, most recent MSLD pipelines using pure convolutions struggle to capture representative features in shallow layers, thus the fusion across different modalities is usually done at the end of the pipelines, even at the last layer, leading to an insufficient information aggregation. To tackle the issue, we introduce a pure transformer-based method, which we refer to as ``Throughout Fusion Transformer (TFormer)", for sufficient information intergration in MSLD. Different from the existing approaches with convolutions, the proposed network leverages transformer as feature extraction backbone, bringing more representative shallow features. We then carefully design a stack of dual-branch hierarchical multi-modal transformer (HMT) blocks to fuse information across different image modalities in a stage-by-stage way. With the aggregated information of image modalities, a multi-modal transformer post-fusion (MTP) block is designed to integrate features across image and non-image data. Such a strategy that information of the image modalities is firstly fused then the heterogeneous ones enables us to better divide and conquer the two major challenges while ensuring inter-modality dynamics are effectively modeled. Experiments conducted on the public Derm7pt dataset validate the superiority of the proposed method. Our TFormer outperforms other state-of-the-art methods. Ablation experiments also suggest the effectiveness of our designs

    RTrack: Accelerating Convergence for Visual Object Tracking via Pseudo-Boxes Exploration

    Full text link
    Single object tracking (SOT) heavily relies on the representation of the target object as a bounding box. However, due to the potential deformation and rotation experienced by the tracked targets, the genuine bounding box fails to capture the appearance information explicitly and introduces cluttered background. This paper proposes RTrack, a novel object representation baseline tracker that utilizes a set of sample points to get a pseudo bounding box. RTrack automatically arranges these points to define the spatial extents and highlight local areas. Building upon the baseline, we conducted an in-depth exploration of the training potential and introduced a one-to-many leading assignment strategy. It is worth noting that our approach achieves competitive performance to the state-of-the-art trackers on the GOT-10k dataset while reducing training time to just 10% of the previous state-of-the-art (SOTA) trackers' training costs. The substantial reduction in training costs brings single-object tracking (SOT) closer to the object detection (OD) task. Extensive experiments demonstrate that our proposed RTrack achieves SOTA results with faster convergence
