Land Usage Classification: A Hierarchical Neural Network Approach
The classification of land usage in grassland mountain bovine areas is important for the management of forage production and grazing in grass-based livestock systems. This article proposes a novel, hierarchical neural ...
Using SWRL and ontological reasoning for the personalization of context-aware assistive services
(ACM Press, 2013-05-29)
The prevalence and advancements of existing context-aware applications are limited in their support of personalization for the user. The increase in the use of context-aware technologies has sparked growth in assistive ...
Memory-saving memetic computing for path-following mobile robots
From Spectator to User, From Viewer to (Act)or
(Intelligent Users/Intelligent Environments Workshop (9th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE ’13)), 2013)
Stephen Hawking, when introducing Krauss’ ‘The Physics of Star Trek’, wrote that “[s]cience fiction (…) is not only good fun but it also serves a serious purpose, that of expanding the human imagination.” In this paper, ...
Tactile Experiences: User Interpretations and Meaning with Touch-Focused IT Artifacts
(Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 47), 2013)
Although touch computing has become an everyday occurrence, there has been little research into the subjective meanings people may assign to touch-focused IT artifacts. Following an interpretive case study with tablets, ...
Modelling Usage Control of a U-learning System using CA-UCON
(4th Workshop on Service Discovery and Composition in Ubiquitous and Pervasive Environments (SUPE'2013), 2013)
A Context-Aware Usage CONtrol (CA-UCON) model is an extension of the traditional UCON model which enables adaptation to environmental changes in the aim of preserving continuity of usage in a pervasive computing system. ...
Formal Specification of CA-UCON model using CCA
(Science and Information Conference, 2013)
A Context-Aware Usage CONtrol (CAUCON) model is an extension of the traditional UCON model which enables adaptation to environmental changes in the aim of preserving continuity of usage in a pervasive computing system. ...
Parallel Memetic Structures
Memetic Computing (MC) structures are algorithms composed of heterogeneous operators (memes) for solving optimization problems. In order to address these problems, this study investigates and proposes a simple yet extremely ...
