    A gesture recognition system (GRS) is comprised of a gesture, gesture-capture device (sensor), tracking algorithm (for motion capture), feature extraction, and classification algorithm. With the impending movement toward natural communication with mechanical and software systems, it is important to examine the first apparatus that separates the human communicator and the device being controlled.

    This paper presents a survey of evolutionary algorithms that are designed for decision-tree induction. In this context, most of the paper focuses on approaches that evolve decision trees as an alternate heuristics to the traditional top-down divide-and-conquer approach. Additionally, we present some alternative methods that make use of evolutionary algorithms to improve particular components of de... View full abstract»

  • Hierarchical Filtered Motion for Action Recognition in Crowded Videos

    Action recognition with cluttered and moving background is a challenging problem. One main difficulty lies in the fact that the motion field in an action region is contaminated by the background motions. We propose a hierarchical filtered motion (HFM) method to recognize actions in crowded videos by the use of motion history image (MHI) as basic representations of motion because of its robustness ...

    In the new technological context of interactive digital (IDTV), traditional TV spots are expected to be replaced by interactive applications. In this paper, we propose a new TV advertising architecture inspired by the philosophy and business models of online advertising. Personalization and content awareness are the two mainstays of our approach that allow advertisers to have more efficient campai... View full abstract»

    Conventional information systems are built on top of a relational database that requires its data model to be stable. This lack of adaptability is very restrictive for systems that manipulate evolving or heterogenous knowledge. The authors of this paper faced this issue at the time of the development of an information system of structural failures. As knowledge on structural failures is very heter... View full abstract»

  • Generalized Locally Weighted GMDH for Short Term Load Forecasting

    Publication Year: 2012 , Page(s): 345 - 356

    This paper proposes a generalized locally weighted group method of data handling (G-LWGMDH) based on evolutionary algorithm (EA) for short-term load forecasting. The locally weighted group method of data handling (LWGMDH) can be derived by combining GMDH with the local regression method and weighted least squares (WLS) regression. The connectivity configuration in the G-LWGMDH is not limited to ad... View full abstract»

    Nanomechatronics is a new emerging field at the intersection of nanotechnology and mechatronics. In this paper, control methods for nanomechatronic systems with respect to signaling, structure, and functions are reviewed, where control techniques that have been applied to nanobiosystems are presented. As an important example of nanomechatronic systems, molecular motors are discussed in terms of in... View full abstract»

    The stretching process is one of the key sections in fiber production, which is decisive to the quality of the final fiber products. Such a process raises high requirements on the control of the rollers with proper stretching ratios, and the large number of rollers with their special characteristics and the demand for synchronous running usually make the design of a good control scheme difficult. ...

  • Towards Better Fault Localization: A Crosstab-Based Statistical Approach

    It is becoming prohibitively expensive and time consuming, as well as tedious and error-prone, to perform debugging manually. Among the debugging activities, fault localization has been one of the most expensive, and therefore, a large number of fault-localization techniques have been proposed over the recent years. This paper presents a crosstab-based statistical technique that makes use of the c... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we design and develop a movie-rating and review-summarization system in a mobile environment. The movie-rating information is based on the sentiment-classification result. The condensed descriptions of movie reviews are generated from the feature-based summarization. We propose a novel approach based on latent semantic analysis (LSA) to identify product features. Furthermore, we fin... View full abstract»

  • An Ant Colony Optimization Approach for Maximizing the Lifetime of Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks

    Maximizing the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a challenging problem. Although some methods exist to address the problem in homogeneous WSNs, research on this problem in heterogeneous WSNs have progressed at a slow pace. Inspired by the promising performance of ant colony optimization (ACO) to solve combinatorial problems, this paper proposes an ACO-based approach that can maximize ... View full abstract»
