Estimating The Tempo Of Audio Files, Parker Ostertag 2020 Minnesota State University Moorhead

Estimating The Tempo Of Audio Files, Parker Ostertag

Student Academic Conference

On the market today, there exists a multitude of software that allows for the detection and prediction of beats per minute (BPM) contained in audio files. There are both free and monetized versions of these programs, but there is one thing that they all have in common: they are inaccurate. This is simply because the science behind beat detection is unfinished, and may never be. In this project, I decided to use a method of audio peak detection to help me detect the tempo that may exist in any audio file. I started by researching existing programs and the science ...


Minet Magnetic Localization, Michael Robert Drake 2020 University of Mississippi

Minet Magnetic Localization, Michael Robert Drake

Honors Theses

Indoor localization is a modern problem of computer science that has no unified solution, as there are significant trade-offs involved with every technique. Magnetic localization is a less popular sub-field that is rooted in infrastructure-free design, which can allow universal setup. Magnetic localization is also often paired with probabilistic programming, which provides a powerful method of estimation, given a limited understanding of the environment. This thesis presents Minet, which is a particle filter based localization system using the Earth's geomagnetic field. It explores the novel idea of state space limitation as a method of optimizing a particle filter, by ...

A Capacitive Sensing Gym Mat For Exercise Classification & Tracking, Adam Goertz 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

A Capacitive Sensing Gym Mat For Exercise Classification & Tracking, Adam Goertz

Computer Science and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

Effective monitoring of adherence to at-home exercise programs as prescribed by physiotherapy protocols is essential to promoting effective rehabilitation and therapeutic interventions. Currently physical therapists and other health professionals have no reliable means of tracking patients' progress in or adherence to a prescribed regimen. This project aims to develop a low-cost, privacy-conserving means of monitoring at-home exercise activity using a gym mat equipped with an array of capacitive sensors. The ability of the mat to classify different types of exercises was evaluated using several machine learning models trained on an existing dataset of physiotherapy exercises.


Lexicon Based Approaches To Sentiment Analysis Of Spanish Tweets: A Comparative Study, Jean Roca 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Lexicon Based Approaches To Sentiment Analysis Of Spanish Tweets: A Comparative Study, Jean Roca

Computer Science and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

Sentiment analysis is a natural language processing technique that aims to classify text based on the emotions expressed in them. It is a research area that has been around for almost 20 years and has seen a lot of development. The works presented in this paper attempts to target a less-developed area in sentiment analysis known as multilingual sentiment analysis. More specifically, multilingual sentiment analysis of micro-texts. Using the existing WordNet lexicon and a domain-specific lexicon for a corpus of Spanish tweets, we analyze the effectiveness of these techniques.


Qlime-A Quadratic Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanation Approach, Steven Bramhall, Hayley Horn, Michael Tieu, Nibhrat Lohia 2020 Southern Methodist University

Qlime-A Quadratic Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanation Approach, Steven Bramhall, Hayley Horn, Michael Tieu, Nibhrat Lohia

SMU Data Science Review

In this paper, we introduce a proof of concept that addresses the assumption and limitation of linear local boundaries by Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations (LIME), a popular technique used to add interpretability and explainability to black box models. LIME is a versatile explainer capable of handling different types of data and models. At the local level, LIME creates a linear relationship for a given prediction through generated sample points to present feature importance. We redefine the linear relationships presented by LIME as quadratic relationships and expand its flexibility in non-linear cases and improve the accuracy of feature interpretations. We coin ...

Towards Optimized Traffic Provisioning And Adaptive Cache Management For Content Delivery, Aditya Sundarrajan 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Towards Optimized Traffic Provisioning And Adaptive Cache Management For Content Delivery, Aditya Sundarrajan

Doctoral Dissertations

Content delivery networks (CDNs) deploy hundreds of thousands of servers around the world to cache and serve trillions of user requests every day for a diverse set of content such as web pages, videos, software downloads and images. In this dissertation, we propose algorithms to provision traffic across cache servers and manage the content they host to achieve performance objectives such as maximizing the cache hit rate, minimizing the bandwidth cost of the network and minimizing the energy consumption of the servers.

Traffic provisioning is the process of determining the set of content domains hosted on the servers. We propose ...


A Comparative Evaluation Of The Detection And Tracking Capability Between Novel Event-Based And Conventional Frame-Based Sensors, James P. Boettiger 2020 Air Force Institute of Technology

A Comparative Evaluation Of The Detection And Tracking Capability Between Novel Event-Based And Conventional Frame-Based Sensors, James P. Boettiger

Theses and Dissertations

Traditional frame-based technology continues to suffer from motion blur, low dynamic range, speed limitations and high data storage requirements. Event-based sensors offer a potential solution to these challenges. This research centers around a comparative assessment of frame and event-based object detection and tracking. A basic frame-based algorithm is used to compare against two different event-based algorithms. First event-based pseudo-frames were parsed through standard frame-based algorithms and secondly, target tracks were constructed directly from filtered events. The findings show there is significant value in pursuing the technology further.

A Visual Analytics System For Making Sense Of Real-Time Twitter Streams, Amir HaghighatiMaleki 2020 The University of Western Ontario

A Visual Analytics System For Making Sense Of Real-Time Twitter Streams, Amir Haghighatimaleki

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Through social media platforms, massive amounts of data are being produced. Twitter, as one such platform, enables users to post “tweets” on an unprecedented scale. Once analyzed by machine learning (ML) techniques and in aggregate, Twitter data can be an invaluable resource for gaining insight. However, when applied to real-time data streams, due to covariate shifts in the data (i.e., changes in the distributions of the inputs of ML algorithms), existing ML approaches result in different types of biases and provide uncertain outputs. This thesis describes a visual analytics system (i.e., a tool that combines data visualization, human-data ...
