    Negative selection algorithm is used to generate detector for change detection, anomaly detection. But it can not be adapted to the change of self data because the match threshold must be set at first. To solve the problem, I-TMA-GA and TMA-MRM inspired from the maturation of T-cells are proposed. But genetic algorithm is used to evolve the detector population with minimal selfmax. In this paper, ... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the lattice machine classification framework (H. Wang et al., 1999), (Hui Wang et al., 2000), (Hui Wang et al., 2004) and its classification methods, in particular the density maximisation method (Hui Wang et al., 2003). This paper also suggests a different way of estimating density, which is based on the contextual probability (H. Wang and W. Dubitzky, 2005). The lattice machin... View full abstract»

    Geo-ontologies have a key role to play in the development of the geo-semantic Web, with regard to facilitating the search for geographical information and resources. They normally hold large amounts of geographic information and undergo a continuous process of revision and update to ensure their currency. Hence, means of ensuring their integrity are crucial and needed to allow them to serve their ... View full abstract»

    The simplest vague selection criterion in database queries is often expressed by a gradual property, or in other words, a certain qualification required to the targeted objects. Complex criteria often combine two or more simple and independent criteria, through an aggregation operation that means a multi-qualification of the searched objects. But there are also cases when in a complex criterion, o... View full abstract»

    The majority of healthcare workers in hospitals continue to record, access and update important patient information using paper charts. Disparate patient data (clinical information, laboratory results and medical imagery) is entered by different caregivers and stored at different locations around the hospital. This is a cumbersome, time consuming process that can result in critical medical errors ... View full abstract»
