Development And Semantic Exploitation Of A Relational Data Model For Service Delivery In South African Municipalities, Kgotatso Desmond Mogotlane, Jean Vincent Fonou Dombeu 2016 Vaal University of Technology

Development And Semantic Exploitation Of A Relational Data Model For Service Delivery In South African Municipalities, Kgotatso Desmond Mogotlane, Jean Vincent Fonou Dombeu

The African Journal of Information Systems

Relational databases (RDB) are the main sources of structured data for government institutions and businesses. Since these databases are dependent on autonomous hardware and software they create problems of data integration and interoperability. Solutions have been proposed to convert RDB into ontology to enable their sharing, reuse and integration on the Semantic Web. However, the proposed methods and techniques remain highly technical and there is lack of research that focuses on the empirical application of these methods and techniques in information systems (IS) domains. This study develops and semantically exploits a relational data model of the South African Municipalities Information ...


Smt-Based Constraint Answer Set Solver Ezsmt (System Description), Benjamin Susman, Yuliya Lierler 2016 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Smt-Based Constraint Answer Set Solver Ezsmt (System Description), Benjamin Susman, Yuliya Lierler

Yuliya Lierler

Constraint answer set programming is a promising research direction that integrates answer set programming with constraint processing. Recently, the formal link between this research area and satisfiability modulo theories (or SMT) was established. This link allows the cross-fertilization between traditionally different solving technologies. The paper presents the system EZSMT, one of the first SMT-based solvers for constraint answer set programming. It also presents the comparative analysis of the performance of EZSMT in relation to its peers including solvers EZCSP and CLINGCON that rely on the hybrid solving approach based on the combination of answer set solvers and constraint solvers. Experimental ...


Constraint Cnf: A Sat And Csp Language Under One Roof, Broes De Cat, Yuliya Lierler 2016 KU Leuven

Constraint Cnf: A Sat And Csp Language Under One Roof, Broes De Cat, Yuliya Lierler

Yuliya Lierler

A new language, called constraint CNF, is proposed. It integrates propositional logic with constraints stemming from constraint programming (CP). A family of algorithms is designed to solve problems expressed in constraint CNF. These algorithms build on techniques from both propositional satisfiability (SAT) and CP. The result is a uniform language and an algorithmic framework, which allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the relation between the solving techniques used in SAT and in CP and apply them together.


A Study Of The Impact Of Interaction Mechanisms And Population Diversity In Evolutionary Multiagent Systems, Sadat U. Chowdhury 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

A Study Of The Impact Of Interaction Mechanisms And Population Diversity In Evolutionary Multiagent Systems, Sadat U. Chowdhury

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In the Evolutionary Computation (EC) research community, a major concern is maintaining optimal levels of population diversity. In the Multiagent Systems (MAS) research community, a major concern is implementing effective agent coordination through various interaction mechanisms. These two concerns coincide when one is faced with Evolutionary Multiagent Systems (EMAS).

This thesis demonstrates a methodology to study the relationship between interaction mechanisms, population diversity, and performance of an evolving multiagent system in a dynamic, real-time, and asynchronous environment. An open sourced extensible experimentation platform is developed that allows plug-ins for evolutionary models, interaction mechanisms, and genotypical encoding schemes beyond the one ...


Computerized Classification Of Surface Spikes In Three-Dimensional Electron Microscopic Reconstructions Of Viruses, Younes Benkarroum 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Computerized Classification Of Surface Spikes In Three-Dimensional Electron Microscopic Reconstructions Of Viruses, Younes Benkarroum

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The purpose of this research is to develop computer techniques for improved three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of viruses from electron microscopic images of them and for the subsequent improved classification of the surface spikes in the resulting reconstruction. The broader impact of such work is the following.

Influenza is an infectious disease caused by rapidly-changing viruses that appear seasonally in the human population. New strains of influenza viruses appear every year, with the potential to cause a serious global pandemic. Two kinds of spikes – hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) – decorate the surface of the virus particles and these proteins are primarily ...


Communication, Machines & Human Augmentics, John Novak, Jason Archer, Victor Mateevitsi, Steve Jones 2016 The University of Illinois at Chicago

Communication, Machines & Human Augmentics, John Novak, Jason Archer, Victor Mateevitsi, Steve Jones

communication +1

This essay reformulates the question of human augmentation as a problem of advanced human-machine communication, theorizing that such communication implies robust artificial intelligence and necessitates understanding the relational role new technologies play in human-machine communication. We focus on the questions, “When do electronic tools cease to be ‘simply’ tools, and become meaningfully part of ourselves,” and, “When might we think of these tools as augmenting our selves, rather than simply amplifying our capabilities?” These questions, already important to the medical and rehabilitative fields, loom larger with increasing commodification of pervasive augmentation technologies, and indicate the verge on which human-machine communication ...


Two Roads, One Destination: A Journey Of Discovery, Karen Joc, Peta J. Hopkins, Jessie Donaghey, Wendy Abbott 2016 Bond University

Two Roads, One Destination: A Journey Of Discovery, Karen Joc, Peta J. Hopkins, Jessie Donaghey, Wendy Abbott

Peta Hopkins

The adoption of resource discovery platforms has been a growing trend in libraries. However, few libraries have reported on the transition from one discovery layer to another, and only a few institutions have discussed two discovery layers available in the same institution at the same time. Bond University Library recently implemented Alma as its library management system, and with this change a new discovery platform, Primo, was implemented to supersede the existing Summon platform. This paper presents the results of a usability study undertaken at Bond University Library in the move from one discovery layer to another.


Volume And Cost Implications Of Product Portfolio Complexity, Mark A. Jacobs 2016 University of Dayton

Volume And Cost Implications Of Product Portfolio Complexity, Mark A. Jacobs

Mark Jacobs

Business leaders are concerned about the impacts of increasing levels of product portfolio complexity since many sense that complexity related costs such as order management, procurement, and inventory threaten to undermine operational efficiencies and consume profits. Even so, managers do not fully understand the extent and breadth of the impacts of product portfolio complexity. A more complete understanding of the operational effects of product portfolio complexity is lacking partially because researchers have not yet offered a robust theoretical perspective or studied it in a focused controlled way; until now. Herein, measures of product portfolio complexity are developed and related to ...


Computational Interpersonal Communication: Communication Studies And Spoken Dialogue Systems, David J. Gunkel Dr. 2016 Northern Illinois University

Computational Interpersonal Communication: Communication Studies And Spoken Dialogue Systems, David J. Gunkel Dr.

communication +1

With the advent of spoken dialogue systems (SDS), communication can no longer be considered a human-to-human transaction. It now involves machines. These mechanisms are not just a medium through which human messages pass, but now occupy the position of the other in social interactions. But the development of robust and efficient conversational agents is not just an engineering challenge. It also depends on research in human conversational behavior. It is the thesis of this paper that communication studies is best situated to respond to this need. The paper argues: 1) that research in communication can supply the information necessary to ...


Hybrid Planning For Decision Making In Self-Adaptive Systems, Ashutosh Pandey, Gabriel A. Moreno, Javier Camara, David Garlan 2016 Carnegie Mellon University

Hybrid Planning For Decision Making In Self-Adaptive Systems, Ashutosh Pandey, Gabriel A. Moreno, Javier Camara, David Garlan

Gabriel A. Moreno

Run-time generation of adaptation plans is a powerful mechanism that helps a self-adaptive system to meet its goals in a dynamically changing environment. In the past, researchers have demonstrated successful use of various automated planning techniques to generate adaptation plans at run time. However, for a planning technique, there is often a trade-off between timeliness and optimality of the solution. For some self-adaptive systems, ideally, one would like to have a planning approach that is both quick and finds an optimal adaptation plan. To find the right balance between these conflicting requirements, this paper introduces a hybrid planning approach that ...


Molecular Distance Maps: An Alignment-Free Computational Tool For Analyzing And Visualizing Dna Sequences' Interrelationships, Rallis Karamichalis 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Molecular Distance Maps: An Alignment-Free Computational Tool For Analyzing And Visualizing Dna Sequences' Interrelationships, Rallis Karamichalis

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In an attempt to identify and classify species based on genetic evidence, we propose a novel combination of methods to quantify and visualize the interrelationships between thousand of species. This is possible by using Chaos Game Representation (CGR) of DNA sequences to compute genomic signatures which we then compare by computing pairwise distances. In the last step, the original DNA sequences are embedded in a high dimensional space using Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS) before everything is projected on a Euclidean 3D space.

To start with, we apply this method to a mitochondrial DNA dataset from NCBI containing over 3,000 species ...


Complex Event Processing As A Service In Multi-Cloud Environments, Wilson A. Higashino 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Complex Event Processing As A Service In Multi-Cloud Environments, Wilson A. Higashino

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The rise of mobile technologies and the Internet of Things, combined with advances in Web technologies, have created a new Big Data world in which the volume and velocity of data generation have achieved an unprecedented scale. As a technology created to process continuous streams of data, Complex Event Processing (CEP) has been often related to Big Data and used as a tool to obtain real-time insights. However, despite this recent surge of interest, the CEP market is still dominated by solutions that are costly and inflexible or too low-level and hard to operate.

To address these problems, this research ...


Using Blockchain Technology To Facilitate Anti-Money Laundering Efforts, Dominick j. Battistini 2016 La Salle University

Using Blockchain Technology To Facilitate Anti-Money Laundering Efforts, Dominick J. Battistini

Economic Crime Forensics Capstones

Money laundering can be defined as any act or attempted act to conceal or disguise the identity of illegally obtained proceeds so that they appear to have originated from legitimate sources (Money Laundering, 2016). It is difficult to determine the magnitude of money laundering because these illicit financial flows remain hidden (Schott, 2006). A report issued by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) quoted that the total of all criminal proceeds amounted to $2.1 trillion in 2009. The study also shows that “Less than 1 percent of global illicit financial flows are currently seized and frozen ...


A Data Fusion Approach To Automated Decision Making In Intelligent Vehicles, Besat Zardosht 2016 The University of Western Ontario

A Data Fusion Approach To Automated Decision Making In Intelligent Vehicles, Besat Zardosht

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The goal of an intelligent transportation system is to increase safety, convenience and efficiency in driving. Besides these obvious advantages, the integration of intelligent features and autonomous functionalities on vehicles will lead to major economic benefits from reduced fuel consumption to efficient exploitation of the road network.

While giving this information to the driver can be useful, there is also the possibility of overloading the driver with too much information. Existing vehicles already have some mechanisms to take certain actions if the driver fails to act. Future vehicles will need more complex decision making modules which receive the raw data ...


Pagi World: A Physically Realistic, General-Purpose Simulation Environment For Developmental Ai Systems, John Licato, Selmer Bringsjord 2016 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Pagi World: A Physically Realistic, General-Purpose Simulation Environment For Developmental Ai Systems, John Licato, Selmer Bringsjord

Computer Science Faculty Presentations

There has long been a need for a simulation environment rich enough to support the development of an AI system sufficiently knowledgeable about physical causality to pass certain tests of Psychometric Artificial Intelligence (PAI) and Psychometric Artificial General Intelligence (PAGI). In this article, we present a simulation environment, PAGI World, which is: cross-platform (as it can be run on all major operating systems); open-source (and thus completely free of charge to use); able to work with AI systems written in almost any programming language; as agnostic as possible regarding which AI approach is used; and easy to set up and ...
