    The first half century of Artificial Intelligence has just ended. The next half century of AI’s challenges and techniques will be quite different from the first, with the focus shifting from objects to networks, and static relationships to dynamics. Examples of this transition will be presented, including applications from multiple sensor signal processing, social dynamics and autonomic systems. S... View full abstract»

    Centralized systems have disadvantages that make them unsuitable for large-scale integration, including lack of scalability, lack of fault tolerance, lack of security and privacy, and communications overhead, resulting in additional expenses for integration and system maintenance. The use of Holonic Intelligence technologies can alleviate these weaknesses. Holonic Intelligence Systems utilize coop... View full abstract»

    Determining the global pattern of DNA methylation, or the methylome and its variation in cells has become an area of considerable interest primarily because of its potential use as an early diagnostic biomarker for cancers. Genome survey techniques are now being used to identify heavily methylated regions on a massive scale and there is a need to correlate this data with focused biomedical informa...

    This paper proposes a nonverbal interface system using bio-potential signals, such as EOG and EMG, measured by a brain-computer interface and investigates its possibility of application to control of a hands-free manipulation system. A simple gesture recognition algorithm is presented to estimate the user's intentions/thoughts from the EOG and EMG signals. To evaluate the feasibility and the chara... View full abstract»

    In human society, learning is essential to intelligent behavior. However, people do not need to learn everything from scratch by their own discovery. Instead, they exchange information and knowledge with one another and learn from their peers and teachers. When a task is too complex for an individual to handle, one may cooperate with its partners in order to accomplish it. Like human society, coop... View full abstract»

    Testing is an important means to ensure the quality of software systems. Contract specification can be used to formally specify the cluster level of object-oriented software, which can then be tested using TACCLE, an advanced methodology for object-oriented testing. The use of formal specifications as a testing base has many advantages. However, such specifications are not easily understood and th... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we analyze the China venture capital guiding fund policy based on options model. Options theory determines the present value of a future uncertainty interest. Following this principle, we propose the methods to valuate the policy with both Monte Carlo simulation and numerical analysis technique on Black-Scholes method. Our work is a remarkable step towards the quantitative analysis ... View full abstract»

  • Weighted fractal image coding

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):1101 - 1105
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (305 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    To encode an image by fractal image coding, it needs to find the best matched domain block for each range block. The best matched criteria is the difference measure between the range block and the domain block transformed by affine transform. This paper proposes a new method of fractal image coding, called weighted fractal image coding. To enhance the visual quality of the decoded image, the edge ... View full abstract»

    Systematic errors in Global Positioning System (GPS) were related to the atmosphere, imprecise orbit, satellite distribution geometry, multipath, satellite and receiver clock, and selective availability (SA). Using DGPS corrections prediction can reduce these errors to a certain extent, with the exception of SA. This makes it possible to enhance the accuracy of GPS positioning by a factor of twent...

    Zhou's and DiCesare's A-path modeling with Petri nets is a well structured concept for modeling manufacturing systems. But the number of places, transitions and arcs increases very fast for large manufacturing systems with several processes. For this purpose, some more compact modeling concepts are presented here. The Petri net is reduced by merging places and transitions which achieve equal funct... View full abstract»

    Most existing multiple object tracking techniques suffer from the well-known "multi-object occlusion" problem and/or immense computational cost due to the use of high- dimensional joint state representation. In this paper, we present a novel distributed Bayesian framework using multiple collaborative cameras for robust and efficient multiple object tracking with significant and persistent occlusio...

    Semantic relatedness between words or concepts is a fundamental problem in many applications of computational linguistics and artificial intelligence. In this paper, a new measure based on the semantic ontology database WordNet is proposed which combines gloss information of concepts with semantic relationships, and organizes concepts as high- dimensional vectors. Other relatedness measures are co... View full abstract»
