    Sequential data represent an important source of potentially new medical knowledge. However, this type of data is rarely provided in a format suitable for immediate application of conventional mining algorithms. This paper summarizes and compares three different sequential mining approaches based, respectively, on windowing, episode rules, and inductive logic programming. Windowing is one of the e...

    This paper presents a method that uses gene ontologies (GOs), together with the paradigm of relational subgroup discovery, to find compactly described groups of genes differentially expressed in specific cancers. The groups are described by means of relational logic features, extracted from publicly available GO information, and are straightforwardly interpretable by medical experts. We applied th...

    Given a genome, i.e., a long string over a fixed finite alphabet, the problem is to find short (dis)similar substrings. This computationally intensive task has many biological applications. We first describe an algorithm to detect substrings that have edit distances to a fixed substring at most equal to a given. We then propose an algorithm that finds the set of all substrings that have edit dista... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a completely blind microarray image gridding framework is developed. The only input to the framework is the microarray image, which can be at any resolution, and the gridding is accomplished with no prior assumptions. The framework includes an evolutionary algorithm (EA) and several novel methods for various stages of the gridding process including subgrid detection. The approach to... View full abstract»

    Graphical representation may provide effective means of making sense of the complexity and sheer volume of data produced by DNA microarray experiments that monitor the expression patterns of thousands of genes simultaneously. The ability to use ldquoabstractrdquo graphical representation to draw attention to areas of interest, and more in-depth visualizations to answer focused questions, would ena... View full abstract»

    Automatic identification of genes has been an actively researched area of bioinformatics. Compared to earlier attempts for finding genes, the recent techniques are significantly more accurate and reliable. Many of the current gene-finding methods employ computational intelligence techniques that are known to be more robust when dealing with uncertainty and imprecision. In this paper, a detailed su...

    There is an abundance of business process modeling techniques that capture and address different aspects of a business process. A limited number of these process models allow further quantitative analysis, and only a few enable structured process improvement. This paper reviews and classifies the main techniques for business process modeling with regard to their analysis and optimization capabilit... View full abstract»

    Non-facial and non-verbal methods of affective expression are essential for naturalistic social interaction in robots that are designed to be functional and lack expressive faces (appearance-constrained) such as those used in search and rescue, law enforcement, and military applications. This correspondence identifies five main methods of non-facial and non-verbal affective expression (... View full abstract»

    This paper shows how temporal Petri nets (TPNs) can be used to specify and analyze an Internet stock trading system. The dynamical behavior of the system and causality between events can be explicitly described by temporal formulas. The functional correctness of the modeled system is formally verified by using the inferential rules in temporal logic. Important properties of the system are analyzed... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of CCME: Coevolutionary Dynamics, Automatic Problem Decomposition, and Regularization

    In most real-world problems, we either know little about the problems or the problems are too complex to have a clear vision on how to decompose them by hand. Thus, it is usually desirable to have a method to automatically decompose a complex problem into a set of subproblems and assign one or more specialists to each subproblem. The cooperative coevolutionary mixture of experts (CCME) model was d... View full abstract»

    Replication is one of the primary techniques used to improve the quality of distributed content service. It generally reduces user latencies and increases a site's availability. However, to our knowledge, there is no systematic framework that combines the structure of both content and service components of a Web application to design effective replica hosting architectures. Recent advances in inte... View full abstract»

    The aim of this paper is to investigate control strategies for functional electrical simulation (FES) cycling, with particular focus on the generation of stimulation intensities for multiple muscles, without any predetermined stimulation pattern. The control system is developed by imitating the biological neuronal control system. Specifically, the control signal on the level of joint torque (quasi... View full abstract»

    Clustering techniques have been widely used for solving various engineering problems such as system architecture, modular product/system design, group technology, machine layout, and so on. Most of these problems use matrix formulation to model the problem. Once the matrix formulation for the problem is obtained, cluster analysis is used to group objects represented in the matrix into homogenous c... View full abstract»
