    The interfaces of the future are more closely adapted to the way humans naturally work and live. This attitude is supported by the development of adaptive communication between users and interactive systems. Adaptive systems, unlike traditional "one-size-fits-all" ones, can afford more personalized user interaction in a variety of contexts, including computer-based education. The paper elaborates ...

    In this paper we continue the investigation of an interoperability problem and its complexity in connection with spatio-relational database models. The result, however, is also interesting from the point of view of graph theory, since the main result is that there is a linear-time algorithm for deciding whether a given triangulation can be seen as a centered triangulation of a certain planar graph...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (385 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A new patient positioning system incorporating a robotic arm is currently being designed for proton beam therapy. This requires aligning a treatment image with a pre-defined reference image. This is achieved by the alignment of the radiation and reference field boundaries, followed by registering the patient's anatomy relative to the boundary. This paper compares and tests methods for both field b... View full abstract»

    In the development of any technology there is always a tendency to lose sight of the basic problems that stimulated its introduction. There is very little quantitative research regarding the question whether object-oriented programming really improves productivity. Many assume that object-oriented programming is more productive than traditional structured programming. The assumption lacks concrete... View full abstract»

    When thesauri are used in online applications, their efficiency can be increased significantly. This requires an appropriate user interface. The designers of data bases are, however, not in the possession of information about neither the use of thesauri nor other authority files at a satisfactory level. Programs created till now support the search only in a poor form, via primitive indices. The ai... View full abstract»

    Aircrafts' turbo-compressor engines may be considered as very complex systems with many mutual and also positive feedbacks. Another characteristic of such systems is that they operate in a very large range of outer environment parameters which causes very different behaviour within their working conditions. Critical susceptibility to erroneous states where requirements for reliability are set to h... View full abstract»

    Enabling the decision making process to support spatial queries is not a trivial task. This task becomes even harder when using geographic information systems (GIS) with data warehouse (DW) because these two technologies are in general used separately. In general, a GIS solution handles spatial data without considering time constrains or without requiring the analyses of geometric shapes evolving ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we introduce a system that uses a bionic approach to process the information obtained from a large number of diverse sensors. By means of the process of symbolization, the amount of information to be processed is drastically reduced, and used to create an inner representation of the real world. Three different applications involving human actions in a building are introduced and bri... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a systems architecture for a hybrid centralised/swarm based multi-agent system. The issue of local goal assignment for agents is investigated through the use of a global agent which teaches the agents responses to given situations. We implement a test problem in the form of a pursuit game, where the multi-agent system is a set of captor agents. The agents learn solutions to ce... View full abstract»

    Eco-grammar (EG-) systems are proposed as a suitable grammar-like formal framework for the study of some of the computationally relevant properties of the behavior of collections of agents sharing a common environment, and acting in it in simple ways. It is illustrated that the computational power of such systems goes - in certain situations - beyond the traditional limits of the Turing-computabil... View full abstract»

    The design and implementation of a control program for biped walking robots using the genetic algorithms (GA) are presented. The most difficult problem with biped walking robots is that they have too many possible gaits. Generally it is impossible to find the optimal gait for a given route. In order to control biped walking robots, we have employed GA to determine the gaits of the robots. It is kn... View full abstract»
