    Soft computing is gradually opening up several possibilities in bioinformatics, especially by generating low-cost, low-precision (approximate), good solutions. In this paper, we survey the role of different soft computing paradigms, like fuzzy sets (FSs), artificial neural networks (ANNs), evolutionary computation, rough sets (RSes), and support vector machines (SVMs), in this direction. The major... View full abstract»

    Genome rearrangement is a new and important research area that studies the gene orders and the evolution of gene families. With the development of fast sequencing techniques, large-scale DNA molecules are investigated with respect to the relative order of genes in them. Contrary to the traditional alignment approach, genome rearrangements are based on comparison of gene orders. Recently, it became... View full abstract»

    Inductive learning methods allow the system designer to infer a model of the relevant phenomena of an unknown process by extracting information from experimental data. A wide range of inductive learning methods is nowadays available, potentially ensuring different levels of accuracy on different problem domains. In this critical review of theoretic results gained in the last decade, we address the... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a neural network-based control system is proposed for fine control of the intake air/fuel ratio in a bi-fuel engine. This control system is an add-on module for an existing vehicle manufacturer's electronic control units (ECUs). Typically the ECU is calibrated for gasoline and provides a good control of the intake air/fuel ratio with gasoline. The neural network-based control system... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel reconfigurable surveillance system that incorporates multiple active-vision sensors is presented. The proposed system has been developed for visual-servoing and other similar applications, such as tracking and state estimation, which require accurate and reliable target surveillance data. In the specific implementation case discussed herein, the position and orientation of a... View full abstract»

  • Automatic detection and elimination of specular reflectance in color images by means of MS diagram and vector connected filters

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):681 - 687

    This paper proposes a new method for the detection and elimination of specular reflectance in color images of real scenes. We use a two-dimensional histogram that allows us to relate the signals of intensity and saturation of a color image, and to identify the specularities in an area of the histogram. This is known as the Intensity-Saturation (MS) diagram, and it is constructed from the Intensity... View full abstract»

    In this correspondence, we examine the relationship between Dempster-Shafer (DS) decision making systems and conventional Bayesian (centralized or distributed) detectors. We establish theoretically that under certain intuitively pleasing DS probability mass assignments the two systems become equivalent. A few numerical studies illustrate the theoretical developments View full abstract»

    This correspondence describes a system called ePro for supporting face-to-face group activities. ePro connects a sensor-embedded board that utilizes radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for object recognition and a computer simulation, and is currently used to discuss urban planning and environmental problems. Users collaboratively construct a town by placing pieces such as houses on t... View full abstract»

  • Multiagent technology for fault tolerance and flexible control

    One of the main characteristics of multiagent systems (MAS) is fault tolerance. When an agent is unavailable for some reason, another agent with similar capabilities can theoretically compensate for this loss. The system can be designed not only for this kind of fault tolerance but also for others. Many key aspects of fault tolerance in MAS are described in this correspondence including social kno...

  • Derivation of monotone decision models from noisy data

    Often, in economic decision problems such as credit loan approval or risk analysis, data mining models are required to be monotone with respect to the decision variables involved. If the model is obtained by a blind search through the data, it does mostly not have this property, even if the underlying database is monotone. In this correspondence, we present methods to enforce monotonicity of decis... View full abstract»
