    Extrinsic calibration or coordinate frame calibration of multiple cameras is a critical step for conducting three-dimensional measurement effectively from visual images. Based on the concept of relative world coordinate system, an efficient method for calibrating the coordinate frames for multiple cameras has been developed in this paper. Its basic idea is to compute the transformation matrices be... View full abstract»

    Recent advances in algorithms that extract rules from artificial neural networks make it feasible to use neural networks as a tool for acquiring knowledge hidden in the data. Findings are reported from the use of such algorithms to separate core and noncore knowledge in a cross-national study of automobile brand image perception. Respondents from five Western European countries have been asked to ... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a concept and design of decision trees based on information granules - multivariable entities characterized by high homogeneity (low variability). As such granules are developed via fuzzy clustering and play a pivotal role in the growth of the decision trees, they will be referred to as C-fuzzy decision trees. In contrast with "standard" decision trees in which one variable (... View full abstract»

    "Sticky Hands" is a physical game for two people involving gentle contact with the hands. The aim is to develop relaxed and elegant motion together, achieve physical sensitivity-improving reactions, and experience an interaction at an intimate yet comfortable level for spiritual development and physical relaxation. We developed a control system for a humanoid robot allowing it to play Sticky Hands... View full abstract»

    The dominant approaches to utility-based multiagent decision theory rely on the premise of individual rationality-the doctrine that each individual is committed to achieving the best outcome for itself, regardless of the effect doing so has on others. This fundamentally asocial concept is the basis of conventional von Neumann-Morgenstern (vN-M) utilities but is inadequate to characterize truly coo... View full abstract»

    Social utilities account for agent preferences and, thus, can characterize complex interrelationships, such as cooperation, compromise, negotiation, and altruism, that can exist between agents. Satisficing game theory, which is based on social utilities, offers a framework within which to design sophisticated multiagent systems. Key features of this approach are: a) an N-agent system may be repres... View full abstract»

    The paper describes a framework for synthesis of a composite system (packaged software) on the basis of interconnected system components when the components and their interconnection (compatibility) are evaluated upon ordinal coordinated scales. Hierarchical multicriteria morphological design is used including generation of design alternatives (DAs) for system components and their combining into t... View full abstract»

    We present methods to automatically identify and optimize controllers for large-scale complex dynamic systems; in particular, aircraft gas turbine engines. We show how the optimization of different elements within the overall controller can be addressed in an efficient fashion. These elements include local actuator gains, control modifiers, and control schedules. An evolutionary algorithm (EA) is ... View full abstract»

    Environmental site investigations are carried out prior to the reclamation of industrially contaminated sites. It is required to take samples and analyze the laboratory reports to find out the distribution of contaminants over the site. In this study, an algorithm based on fuzzy assessment and overlapped partitioning is proposed to identify the topology of polluted areas in a given industrial site... View full abstract»

    We present a method for performing face recognition based on the fractal neighbor distance (FND). The FND has previously been used for face recognition. What distinguishes our method from others is that we incorporate the use of localized weights with the FND. In a local-to-global feature matching approach, a set of localized weights is used with an algorithm based on the FND that searches for loc... View full abstract»

    Reinforcement learning is considered as a strong method for learning in multiagent systems environments. However, it still has some drawbacks, including modeling other learning agents present in the domain as part of the state of the environment, and some states are much less experienced than others, or some state-action pairs are never visited during the learning phase. Further, before the learni... View full abstract»

    Learning in self-organizing maps (SOM) is considered unsupervised because training patterns do not need accompanying desired output information. Prior to its use in some real-world applications, however, a trained SOM often has to be labeled. This labeling phase is usually supervised in that labeled patterns need accompanying output information. Because such labeled patterns are not always availab... View full abstract»
