  • A Characterization of Q-Minimal Solutions in Set-Valued Optimization in Terms of Radial Derivatives

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):1 - 3
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (128 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We deal with a set-valued optimization problem with an abstract set constraint. We present a new characterization of Q-minimal solutions in terms of higher-order outer and inner radial derivatives introduced by Anh and Khanh in [4]. The Q-minimality includes several kinds of solutions known from the literature (among others, a Borwein-properly efficient point and a Henig-properly efficient point).... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):4 - 10
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (250 KB)

    Residential demand side management (DSM) is one of the most challenging topics in smart grids. In this paper, a multiobjective model for the residential DSM over a 24-hour horizon is presented. This model consists of appliances, a battery and a photovoltaic panel. The resolution of this model is based on combining a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm (NSGA-II) and an exact solver (CPLEX). Solut... View full abstract»

  • Fault Tolerance of k-Split Networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):19 - 21
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (150 KB)

    Fault tolerance is especially important for interconnection networks, since the growing size of networks increases their vulnerability to component failures. A classical measure for the fault tolerance of a network in the case of vertex failures is its connectivity. The connectivity κ (G) of a connected graph G is the least positive integer κ such that there is S ⊂ V, |S| = ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (729 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We consider the task of learning control policies for a robotic mechanism striking a puck in an air hockey game. The control signal is a direct command to the robot's motors. We employ a model free deep reinforcement learning framework to learn the motoric skills of striking the puck accurately in order to score. We propose certain improvements to the standard learning scheme which make the deep Q... View full abstract»

  • Contextual Similarity: Quasilinear-Time Search and Comparison for Sequential Data

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):28 - 32
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (489 KB)

    This paper proposes a new algorithm for the evaluation of similarity between two sequences in quasilinear time. It describes the theoretical, practical and implementational aspects of the algorithm. The proposed method is a new approach dedicated to the computation of sequential similarity in contrast to other methods like the Jaccard Index which although designed for the computation of similarity...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (241 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Robotic milking systems (RMS) offer an innovative approach to improving productivity on dairy farms. For farms using hired labour and located near industrial centers, RMS may contribute to the reduction of wage costs. As this technology is very expensive, and little is known regarding its interplay between animal, technology and stockman, or the effects on milking performance, the detailed study i...

  • A Siamese Autoencoder Preserving Distances for Anomaly Detection in Multi-robot Systems

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):39 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (172 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A Siamese autoencoder preserving distances for preprocessing sensor data in the multi-robot system anomaly detection is proposed. It can be viewed as two identical autoencoders with shared weights by the encoder parts. The proposed neural network reduces the dimensionality of the input observations in order to simplify the use of the Mahalanobis distance in anomaly detection. Moreover, it reduces ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB)

    Voiced-Unvoiced classification (V-UV) is a well understood but still not perfectly solved problem. It tackles the problem of determining whether a signal frame contains harmonic content or not. This paper presents a new approach to this problem using a conventional multi-layer perceptron neural network trained with linear predictive coding (LPC) coefficients. LPC is a method that results in a numb... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1277 KB)

    This paper deals with the problem of usage of haptic feedbacks which are used, for example, in prosthetics, for different patient groups. It is known, that every persons tactile sense is different, and therefore, if any information has to be sent suing haptic feedback, it should be examined, whether the signal sent to a person is clear and can be recognized in any condition, or not. Moreover, pati... View full abstract»
