Comparison Of Pre-Intervention Idi Results From Stem And Non-Stem Undergraduate Students, Anne M. Lucietto, Liza Russell

Journal of Global Education and Research

The emphasis on intercultural competence is more prevalent in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) majors as the world shifts towards a more globalized economy. When entering higher education, students have differing levels of cultural interaction due to varying peer interaction, family experiences, international travel, and social media experiences. The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) has been used to develop an understanding of how students view others and the level of skills they have to interact and adapt to other cultures. Using published data focused on pre-intervention assessment, researchers compared it to data obtained from STEM students preparing for an international ...


Kriging-Based Design For Robust High-Performance Control Systems, Laura Micheli, Simon Laflamme 2020 Catholic University of America

Kriging-Based Design For Robust High-Performance Control Systems, Laura Micheli, Simon Laflamme

Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Publications

High-performance control systems (HPCS) are sophisticated vibration-mitigation devices that include active, semiactive, and hybrid systems. HPCS leverage feedback mechanisms to dynamically adjust the damping force in response to motion, offering a good mitigation performance over a wide excitation bandwidth. These damping systems are attractive for multihazard mitigation of civil structures. However, the application of HPCS necessitates the design and integration of a closed-loop control system that can be susceptible to local failure or reduction in performance in the form of, for example, malfunctions of HPCS components, noisy measurements, wear, aging, and power unavailability. It follows that these sources of uncertainties ...

Numerical Evaluation Of A Novel Passive Variable Friction Damper For Vibration Mitigation, Vahid Barzegar, Simon Laflamme, Austin Downey, Meng Li, Chao Hu

Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Publications

This study assesses the performance of a novel passive variable friction damper (PVFD) at mitigating wind- and seismic-induced vibrations. The PVFD consists of two friction plates upon which a cam profile modulates the normal force as a function of its rotation. A unique feature of the PVFD is its customizable shape, yielding a customizable friction hysteresis. The objective of the study is to assess the benefits of crafting the friction behavior to satisfy motion criteria. This is done numerically on two example buildings: a 5-story structure subjected to seismic loads, and a 20-story structure subjected to non-simultaneous seismic and wind ...

Computer Science: Faculty Publications and Other Works

In the blooming era of smart edge devices, surveillance cam- eras have been deployed in many locations. Surveillance cam- eras are most useful when they are spaced out to maximize coverage of an area. However, deciding where to place cam- eras is an NP-hard problem and researchers have proposed heuristic solutions. Existing work does not consider a signifi- cant restriction of computer vision: in order to track a moving object, the object must occupy enough pixels. The number of pixels depends on many factors (how far away is the object? What is the camera resolution? What is the focal length ...

Human-to-human communications are enriched with affects and emotions, conveyed, and perceived through both verbal and nonverbal communication. It is our thesis that drone swarms can be used to communicate information enriched with effects via nonverbal channels: guiding, generally interacting with, or warning a human audience via their pattern of motions or behavior. And furthermore that this approach has unique advantages such as flexibility and mobility over other forms of user interface. In this paper, we present a user study to understand how human participants perceived and interpreted swarm behaviors of micro-drone Crazyflie quadcopters flying three different flight formations to bridge ...


Temporal Heterogeneous Interaction Graph Embedding For Next-Item Recommendation, Yugang JI, Mingyang YIN, Yuan FANG, Hongxia YANG, Xiangwei WANG, Tianrui JIA, Chuan SHI 2020 Singapore Management University

Temporal Heterogeneous Interaction Graph Embedding For Next-Item Recommendation, Yugang Ji, Mingyang Yin, Yuan Fang, Hongxia Yang, Xiangwei Wang, Tianrui Jia, Chuan Shi

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

In the scenario of next-item recommendation, previous methods attempt to model user preferences by capturing the evolution of sequential interactions. However, their sequential expression is often limited, without modeling complex dynamics that short-term demands can often be influenced by long-term habits. Moreover, few of them take into account the heterogeneous types of interaction between users and items. In this paper, we model such complex data as a Temporal Heterogeneous Interaction Graph (THIG) and learn both user and item embeddings on THIGs to address next-item recommendation. The main challenges involve two aspects: the complex dynamics and rich heterogeneity of interactions. We ...

Chitosan is a nature-based polymer with low toxicity, excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability. However, the intractable solubility of chitosan in water and most conventional solvents hampers its biomedical applications. Following the dissolution method for dissolving chitosan in plain water developed by us, chitosan was dissolved in ionic liquid followed by overnight freezing at −20 °C and subsequent solvent exchange with plain water at room temperature. In this study, we fabricated a drug-carrying chitosan film via solution casting and air-drying by using the plain water-based chitosan solution. Specifically, brimonidine tartrate (BT), an antiglaucoma drug, was dissolved in the plain-water based solution and ...

International Journal of Smart Sensor and Adhoc Network

Fault tolerance is one of the main issues in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) since it becomes critical in real deployment environment where reliability and reduced inaccessibility times are important. In this paper, we propose a fault– tolerance technique for coverage area of the sensor network that enhances the energy efficiency by reducing the communication, with the help of Constrained Delaunay Triangulation intersect line. Further by applying the above approach, we reduce the energy consumption and congestion in the network. In last, we describe our approach with a case study that our approach is better in fault tolerance and energy saving.
