Educational data mining (EDM) is an emerging interdisciplinary research area that deals with the development of methods to explore data originating in an educational context. EDM uses computational approaches to analyze educational data in order to study educational questions. This paper surveys the most relevant studies carried out in this field to date. First, it introduces EDM and describes the... View full abstract»

Fabric selection is a crucial step in fashion product development. Prior research works have studied the prediction of fabric specimens based on the fabric hand descriptors via either traditional statistical methods or artificial intelligence methods. Despite showing good prediction accuracy, these methods usually lack an understandable ruleset, which means their “interpretability” i... View full abstract»
Motion Control of Omni-Directional Three-Wheel Robots by Brain-Emotional-Learning-Based Intelligent ControllerPublication Year: 2010, Page(s):630 - 638
Cited by: Papers (20)
An intelligent controller is applied to control the motion of an omni-directional robot in this paper. The controller is based on the brain-emotional-learning algorithm, which is inspired from a computational model of limbic system in the mammalian brain. The brain-emotional-learning-based intelligent controller (BELBIC) with quadratic reward, comparable to linear-quadratic-regulator (LQR) control... View full abstract»

Quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) is one of the important disciplines of computer-aided drug design that deals with the predictive modeling of properties of a molecule. In general, each QSAR dataset is small in size with large number of features or descriptors. Among the large amount of descriptors presented in the QSAR dataset, only a small fraction of them is effective for perf... View full abstract»
Efficient Decision Makings for Dynamic Weapon-Target Assignment by Virtual Permutation and Tabu Search HeuristicsPublication Year: 2010, Page(s):649 - 662

The dynamic weapon-target assignment (DWTA) problem is a typical constrained combinatorial optimization problem with the objective of maximizing the total value of surviving assets threatened by hostile targets through all defense stages. A generic asset-based DWTA model is established, especially for the warfare scenario of force coordination, to formulate this problem. Four categories of constra... View full abstract»

Optimal deployment and accurate localization of sensor nodes have a strong influence on the performance of a wireless sensor network (WSN). This paper considers real-time autonomous deployment of sensor nodes from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Such a deployment has importance, particularly in ad hoc WSNs, for emergency applications, such as disaster monitoring and battlefield surveillance. The... View full abstract»

In this paper, a novel video-based multimodal biometric verification scheme using the subspace-based low-level feature fusion of face and speech is developed for specific speaker recognition for perceptual human-computer interaction (HCI). In the proposed scheme, human face is tracked and face pose is estimated to weight the detected facelike regions in successive frames, where ill-posed faces and... View full abstract»

A social network is the mapping and measuring of relationships and flows between individuals, groups, organizations, computers, websites, and other information/knowledge processing entities. The nodes in the network are the people and groups, while the links show relationships or flows between the nodes. Social networks provide both a visual and a mathematical analysis of relationships. Social net... View full abstract»

In this research, a fuzzy logic controller is designed for vision-based autonomous road-following. Because of its high-speed response, portability, and flexibility, a field programmable gate array is applied to implement this control system. Furthermore, a novel hardware/software partitioning method using the genetic algorithm is developed. This method is capable of finding the tradeoff among seve... View full abstract»
