    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (706 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper deals with accidents causing organizational failure. A comparison between the two different types of accidents, organizational and personal, is provided. Examples of organizational disasters in history, along with the contributing factors are presented. A model describing the `anatomy' of organizational accidents is presented. The model provides the factors causing barrier failure. Conce... View full abstract»

    Arabic characters are used in several languages other than Arabic, despite to this fact; Arabic Character Recognition (ACR) has not received enough interests by researchers. Little researchprogress has been achieved comparing to the one done on the Latin or Chinese and the solutions available in the market are still far from being perfect. However, recent years have shown a considerable increase i... View full abstract»

  • The Use of Meta-Heuristic Algorithms for Data Mining

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):34 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3459 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we explore the application of powerful optimisers known as metaheuristic algorithms to problems within the data mining domain. We introduce some well-known data mining problems, and show how they can be formulated as optimisation problems. We then review the use of metaheuristics in this context. In particular, we focus on the task of partial classification and show how multi-objecti... View full abstract»

    In this paper we discuss an emerging trend in high performance computing-the social or community computing. The emergence of screensaver computing, grid computing, peer-to-peer systems, and their demonstrated ability to garner computing power as potent as the supercomputers seems to be auspicious. In this paper we discuss the new phenomenon of community computing-including their potential applicat... View full abstract»

    Using hexagonal grids to represent digital images have been studied for more than 40 years. Increased processing capabilities of graphic devices and recent improvements in CCD technology have made hexagonal sampling attractive for practical applications and brought new interests on this topic. The hexagonal structure is considered to be preferable to the rectangular structure due to its higher sam... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (112 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Computer graphics deals with realistic rendering of 3-d objects. There are many rendering algorithms used. Two of the most famous algorithms are Gouraud Shading Algorithm and Phong Shading Algorithm. These algorithms handle location of light source, location of the camera, and surface reflection properties in different manners and produce different results. Their computational complexities are als... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (120 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Sparse matrices are pervasive in many Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E) applications. There is a significant number of storage formats used to represent sparse matrices. This paper presents a performance evaluation of storage formats for the main kernel of iterative methods for numerical linear algebra, namely matrix-vector multiplication. The experiments consider a set of almost 20... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (64 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    India is a thriving testing ground for people working in "Information and Communication Technology for Development," or ICT4D. Many of these projects take the form of a PC being taken to a rural village and operated like a small Internet cafe or kiosk, with the two-pronged goals of making socio-economic impact and turning the kiosk into a profitable micro-enterprise. A mounting body of evidence in... View full abstract»
