Formal verification of robotics navigation algorithms
BUGs algorithms are navigation algorithms that have been designed to seek of a target in a plane that contains obstacles. Many new navigation algorithms have been inspired from them and their applications can be found in ...
The Ethics of Computing: A Survey of the Computing-Oriented Literature
Computing technologies and artifacts are increasingly integrated intomost aspects of our professional, social, and private lives. One consequence of this growing ubiquity of computing is that it can have significant ethical ...
Irregularity-based image regions saliency identiﬁcation and evaluation
Saliency or Salient regions extraction form images is still a challenging field since it needs some understanding for the image and the nature of the image. The technique that is suitable in some application is not necessarily ...
The ethics of using cameras in care homes
(Nursing Times, 2016-03-07)
Exploration of the issues and pointer to ethical framework that is applicable to the use of assistive technologies (e.g. cameras) in care homes as a means of safeguarding residents and staff.
A Quantisation of Cognitive Learning Process by Computer Graphics-Games: Towards More Efficient Learning Models
(Open Access Library Journals, 2016-01)
With the latest developments in computer technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, more opportunities of cognitive data acquisition and stimulation via game-based systems have become available for ...
Towards Artificial Speech Therapy: A Neural System for Impaired Speech Segmentation
(World Scientific, 2016-03-17)
This paper presents a neural system-based technique for segmenting short impaired speech utterances into silent, unvoiced, and voiced sections. Moreover, the proposed technique identifies those points of the (voiced) speech ...
Evolutionary Fuzzy K-Nearest Neighbors Algorithm using Interval-Valued Fuzzy Sets
One of the most known and effective methods in supervised classification is the k-nearest neighbors classifier. Several approaches have been proposed to enhance its precision, with the fuzzy k-nearest neighbors (fuzzy-kNN) ...
Gender and Performance in Computer Science
The term gender gap refers to the significant underrepresentation of females in many subjects. In Computer Science, the gender gap exists at all career levels. In this paper, we study whether there is a performance gap in ...
Uncertainty Measurement for the Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Set
In this paper, two measures of uncertainty for interval type-2 fuzzy sets are presented, evaluated, compared and contrasted. Wu and Mendel regard the length of the type-reduced set as a measure of the uncertainty in an ...
Empirical study on the effect of population size on MAX-MIN ant system in dynamic environments
(IEEE Press, 2016-07)
In this paper, the effect of the population size on the performance of the MAX -MIN ant system for dynamic optimization problems (DOPs) is investigated. DOPs are generated with the dynamic benchmark generator for ...
