    This letter applies a feedforward neural network trained in an unsupervised fashion to the problem of optimizing the transmit powers in centralized radio access networks operating on a cell-free basis. Both uplink and ...
  • Nikbakht, Rasoul; Jonsson, Anders, 1973-; Lozano Solsona, Angel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    This letter proposes the unsupervised training of a feedforward neural network to solve parametric optimization problems involving large numbers of parameters. Such unsupervised training, which consists in repeatedly ...
  • Fernández-Planells, Ariadna; Orduña Malea, Enrique; Feixa, Carles, 1962- (SAGE Publications, 2021)
    Gang literature increasingly reflects the importance of social media in gang lifestyle, as gang members adopt new communicative practices. Yet, because of the multifaceted nature of online gang activity and the diversity ...
  • Chandna, Pritish; Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    We present a deep neural network based singing voice synthesizer, inspired by the Deep Convolutions Generative Adversarial Networks (DCGAN) architecture and optimized using the Wasserstein-GAN algorithm. We use vocoder ...

    Errors in early embryogenesis are a cause of sporadic cell death and developmental failure1,2. Phagocytic activity has a central role in scavenging apoptotic cells in differentiated tissues3-6. However, how apoptotic cells ...
  • Oberman, Kieran (Duke University Press, 2020)
    This article addresses a previously overlooked problem in the ethics of defensive killing. Everyone agrees that defensive killing can only be justified when it is necessary. But necessary for what? That seemingly simple ...
  • Cruzat, Josephine; Torralba, Mireia; Ruzzoli, Manuela; Fernández, Alba; Deco, Gustavo; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2021)
    Several studies have shown that attention and perception can depend upon the phase of ongoing neural oscillations at stimulus onset. Here, we extend this idea to the memory domain. We tested the hypothesis that ongoing ...
