The quality of data is an important issue in any domain-specific data mining and knowledge discovery initiative. The validity of solutions produced by data-driven algorithms can be diminished if the data being analyzed are of low quality. The quality of data is often realized in terms of data noise present in the given dataset and can include noisy attributes or labeling errors. Hence, tools for i... View full abstract»

Most of the intelligent knowledge-based applications contain components for measuring semantic similarity between terms. Many of the existing semantic similarity measures that use ontology structure as their primary source cannot measure semantic similarity between terms and concepts using multiple ontologies. This research explores a new way to measure semantic similarity between biomedical conce... View full abstract»

This paper deals with background knowledge in knowledge extraction from binary data. A background knowledge represents an additional piece of information a user may have along with the input data. Such information can be considered as specifying the type of knowledge a user is looking for in the data. In particular, we emphasize the need for taking into account background knowledge in formal conce... View full abstract»

Recently, a coordinated hybrid agent (CHA) framework was proposed for the control of multiagent systems (MASs). It was demonstrated that an intelligent planner can be designed for the CHA framework to automatically generate desired actions for multiple robots in an MAS. However, in previous studies, only static obstacles in the workspace were considered. In this paper, a neural-network-based appro... View full abstract»

Identification of the correct number of clusters is an important consideration in clustering where several cluster validity indexes, primarily utilizing the Euclidean distance, have been used in the literature. The property of symmetry is observed in most clustering solutions. In this paper, the symmetry versions of nine cluster validity indexes, namely, Davies-Bouldin index, Dunn index, generaliz...

Marble quality classification is an important procedure generally performed by human experts. However, using human experts for classification is error prone and subjective. Therefore, automatic and computerized methods are needed in order to obtain reproducible and objective results. Although several methods are proposed for this purpose, we demonstrate that their performance is limited when deali... View full abstract»

There is a fair amount of research about privacy, but few empirical studies about its cost have been conducted. In the area of secure multiparty computation, the scalar product has long been reckoned as one of the most promising alternatives to classic logic gates. The reason for this is that the scalar product is not only complete, which is as good as logic gates, but also much more efficient tha... View full abstract»

Strategy diffusion is a common phenomenon in the collective motion of multiagents, which is the large scale of strategy penetrations of certain agents on other agents; there are many kinds of diffusion forms; among them, the collective diffusion is always seen, which implies that a social strategy accepted by collective agents may have strong authority and tend to diffuse to other agents. This pap... View full abstract»
Nonlinear System Control Using Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Networks Based on a Modified Differential EvolutionPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):459 - 473

This study presents an adaptive neural fuzzy network (ANFN) controller based on a modified differential evolution (MODE) for solving control problems. The proposed ANFN controller adopts a functional link neural network as the consequent part of the fuzzy rules. Thus, the consequent part of the ANFN controller is a nonlinear combination of input variables. The proposed MODE learning algorithm adop... View full abstract»

Process mining techniques attempt to extract nontrivial and useful information from event logs. For example, there are many process mining techniques to automatically discover a process model describing the causal dependencies between activities. Several successful case studies have been reported in literature, all demonstrating the applicability of process mining. However, these case studies refe... View full abstract»

The early detection of faulty batteries is a critical work in the manufacturing processes of a secondary rechargeable battery. Conventional approaches use original performance degradation profiles of remaining capacity after recharge in order to detect faulty batteries. However, original degradation profiles with right-truncated test duration may not be effective in detecting faulty batteries. In ... View full abstract»
