    Groups using group decision support systems (GDSS) to address particular tasks can be viewed as performing a search. Such tasks involve arriving at a solution or decision within the context of a complex search space, warranting the use of computerized decision support tools. The type of search undertaken by the groups appears to be a form of adaptive, rather than enumerative, search. Recently, eff... View full abstract»

    This paper presents long-term production costing as an important decision tool that can be used to assess entry of exogenous players within an otherwise centrally planned, natural monopolistic market. The ex-monopolist emerges as the dominant participant of the restructured market, and continues to play a decisive role in price determination. In doing so, it can apply long-term production costing ... View full abstract»

    Web caching technology has been widely used to improve the performance of the Web infrastructure and reduce user-perceived network latencies. Proxy caching is a major Web caching technique that attempts to serve user Web requests from one or a network of proxies located between the end user and Web servers hosting the original copies of the requested objects. This paper surveys the main technical ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes and evaluates the use of fuzzy logic arbiters for multiple-bus shared memory multiprocessor system. Multiple-bus systems allow multiple and simultaneous bus transfer in addition to a high degree of fault tolerance. In such systems, arbiters are used to resolve conflicts to system resources, which are the shared memory modules and the buses. Typically, these conflicts are resol... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (343 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A class of neurofuzzy networks and a constructive, competition-based learning procedure is introduced. Given a set of training data, the learning procedure automatically adjusts the input space portion to cover the whole space and finds membership functions parameters for each input variable. The network processes data following fuzzy reasoning principles and, due to its structure, it is dual to a... View full abstract»

  • Model-reference adaptive control based on neurofuzzy networks

    Model reference adaptive control (MRAC) is a popular approach to control linear systems, as it is relatively simple to implement. However, the performance of the linear MRAC deteriorates rapidly when the system becomes nonlinear. In this paper, a nonlinear MRAC based on neurofuzzy networks is derived. Neurofuzzy networks are chosen not only because they can approximate nonlinear functions with arb... View full abstract»

    A new point process transition density model is proposed based on the theory of point patterns for predicting the likelihood of occurrence of spatial-temporal random events. The model provides a framework for discovering and incorporating event initiation preferences in terms of clusters of feature values. Components of the proposed model are specified taking into account additional behavioral ass... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a vision-based system that is able to automatically recognize deformable objects, to estimate their pose, and to select suitable picking points. A hierarchical self-organized neural network is used to segment color images based on texture information. A morphological analysis allows the recognition of the objects and the picking points extraction. The proposed approach is usef... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we develop a predictive learning controller for ram velocity of injection molding based on neural networks. We first introduce a model of describing the injection molding, including the time horizon and the batch index. The feedback control plus biased function is proposed for controlling this plant. More specifically, a radial basis function (RBF) network is used to approximate the... View full abstract»

    Weather forecasting has been one of the most challenging problems around the world for more than half a century. Not only because of its practical value in meteorology, but it is also a typical "unbiased" time series forecasting problem in scientific research. In this paper, we propose an innovative, intelligent multiagent-based environment, namely intelligent Java Agent Development Environment (i... View full abstract»
