    Contemporary computers bring us very large datasets, datasets which can be too large for those same computers to analyse properly. One approach is to aggregate these data (by some suitably scientific criteria) to provide more manageably-sized datasets. These aggregated data will perforce be symbolic data consisting of lists, intervals, histograms, etc. Now an observation is a p-dimensional hypercu... View full abstract»

    A large class of clustering problems can be formulated as an optimizational problem in which the best clustering is searched among all feasible clustering according to a selected criterion function. This clustering approach can be applied to a variety of very interesting clustering problems, as it is possible to adapt it to a concrete clustering problem by an appropriate specification of the crite...

    The importance of ICT to all aspects of university business cannot be overemphasised. However the devolved nature of university management, and particularly of research, results in tensions between the central university ICT services (including elearning), striving to provide resilient and cost-effective services for all, and the academic communities that need agile and leading-edge ICTs to serve ...

    Lifelong learning is the new adagio for modern European citizens preparing our knowledge-based society for the next decades to come. Therefore, we need open and flexible learning systems, enabling individual learning pathways for all citizens, suitable to their needs and interests at all stages of their lives. This paper will address the question how universities should support the individual citi... View full abstract»

    ldquoCloudrdquo computing - a relatively recent term, builds on decades of research in virtualization, distributed computing, utility computing, and more recently networking, web and software services. It implies a service oriented architecture, reduced information technology overhead for the end-user, great flexibility, reduced total cost of ownership, on-demand services and many other things. Th... View full abstract»

    Information logistics (IL) is understood as the process of planning, implementing and controlling cross-unit data flows as well as storage and provisioning of respective data - as long as data is used for unitpsilas decision support. IL creates significant business value - but mostly for other units and in the future while costs occur now at the IT units. As a consequence, managerial aspects of IL... View full abstract»

    In this paper we consider autonomous robot discovery through experimentation in the robotpsilas environment. We analyse the applicability of machine learning (ML) methods with respect to various levels of robot discovery tasks, from extracting simple laws among the observed variables, to discovering completely new notions that were never mentioned in the data directly. We first introduce the XPERO... View full abstract»

    Laura, a very beautiful but also mysterious lady, inspired the famous poet Petrarch for poems, which express ecstatic love as well as deep despair. F. J. Jones - a scientist for literary - recognised in these changes between love and despair an oscillating behaviour - from 1328 to 1350 -, which he called Petrarch's emotional cycle. The mathematician S .Rinaldi investigated this cycle and establish... View full abstract»

    This paper describes algorithmic art, i.e. visual art created on the basis of algorithms that completely describe generation of images. Algorithmic art is rooted in rational approach to art, technology and application of mathematics. It is based on computer technology and particularly on programming that make algorithmic art possible and that influences it most. Therefore we first explore relation... View full abstract»

    The paper presents an analysis of a one-semester technical course ldquoElectrical facilitiesrdquo. The goal of the paper is to show how a system of real-time knowledge testing at undergraduate level, using a radio-frequency clicker system and conventional knowledge assessment methods, was implemented on a single course at the University of Zagreb. Using statistical analysis, students are clustered... View full abstract»

    Computerisation of most human activities that handle data is widely in function nowadays. General fears of Big Brother syndrome are ubiquitous. The paper attempts to challenge this common wisdom by demonstrating on some examples how computerisation in connection with proclaimed data privacy politics actually hinders the useful information, some of which was even formerly available, without compute...
