Distinctive Features Of Nonverbal Behavior And Mimicry In Application Interviews Through Data Analysis And Machine Learning, Sanne Rogiers, Elias Corneillie, Filip Lievens, Frederik Anseel, Peter Veelaert, Wilfried Philips

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This paper reveals the characteristics and effects of nonverbal behavior and human mimicry in the context of application interviews. It discloses a novel analyzation method for psychological research by utilizing machine learning. In comparison to traditional manual data analysis, machine learning proves to be able to analyze the data more deeply and to discover connections in the data invisible to the human eye. The paper describes an experiment to measure and analyze the reactions of evaluators to job applicants who adopt specific behaviors: mimicry, suppress, immediacy and natural behavior. First, evaluation of the applicant qualifications by the interviewer reveals how ...


Contours Of Virtual Enfreakment In Fighting Game Characters, Sercan Sengun, Peter Mawhorter, James Bowie-Wilson, Yusef Audeh, Haewoon KWAK, D. Fox Harrell 2022 Singapore Management University

Contours Of Virtual Enfreakment In Fighting Game Characters, Sercan Sengun, Peter Mawhorter, James Bowie-Wilson, Yusef Audeh, Haewoon Kwak, D. Fox Harrell

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

Characters in fighting videogames1 such as Street Fighter V and Tekken7 typically reveal a phenomenon that we define as virtual enfreakment: their bodies, costumes, and fighting styles are exaggerated (1) in a manner that emphasizes perceived exoticism and (2) to enable them to be easily visually and conceptually distinguishable from one another. Here, using both quantitative and qualitative methods, including crowd-sourced surveys and analyses of game mechanics, we report on the contours of virtual enfreakment in those games. We specifically examine differences in character design across gender, national-origin, and skin-color lines. Disappointingly but not surprisingly, we find racism and sexism ...


A Mean-Field Markov Decision Process Model For Spatial Temporal Subsidies In Ride-Sourcing Markets, Zheng ZHU, Jintao KE, Hai WANG 2022 Singapore Management University

A Mean-Field Markov Decision Process Model For Spatial Temporal Subsidies In Ride-Sourcing Markets, Zheng Zhu, Jintao Ke, Hai Wang

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

Ride-sourcing services are increasingly popular because of their ability to accommodate on-demand travel needs. A critical issue faced by ride-sourcing platforms is the supply-demand imbalance, as a result of which drivers may spend substantial time on idle cruising and picking up remote passengers. Some platforms attempt to mitigate the imbalance by providing relocation guidance for idle drivers who may have their own self-relocation strategies and decline to follow the suggestions. Platforms then seek to induce drivers to system-desirable locations by offering them subsidies. This paper proposes a mean-field Markov decision process (MF-MDP) model to depict the dynamics in ride-sourcing markets ...


Practical Methods For High-Dimensional Data Publication With Differential Privacy, Ryan H. McKenna 2022 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Practical Methods For High-Dimensional Data Publication With Differential Privacy, Ryan H. Mckenna

Doctoral Dissertations

In recent years, differential privacy has seen significant growth, and has been widely embraced as the dominant privacy definition by the research community. Much progress has been made on designing theoretically principled and practically sound privacy mechanisms. There have even been some real-world deployments of differential privacy, although it has not yet seen widespread adoption. One challenge is that for some problems, there is a gap between the privacy budget required to have a meaningful privacy guarantee and to retain data utility. A second challenge is that many privacy mechanisms have trouble scaling to high-dimensional data, limiting their applicability to ...


Nonparametric Contextual Reasoning For Question Answering Over Large Knowledge Bases, Rajarshi Das 2022 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Nonparametric Contextual Reasoning For Question Answering Over Large Knowledge Bases, Rajarshi Das

Doctoral Dissertations

Question answering (QA) over knowledge bases provides a user-friendly way of accessing the massive amount of information stored in them. We have experienced tremendous progress in the performance of QA systems, thanks to the recent advancements in representation learning by deep neural models. However, such deep models function as black boxes with an opaque reasoning process, are brittle, and offer very limited control (e.g. for debugging an erroneous model prediction). It is also unclear how to reliably add or update knowledge stored in their model parameters.

This thesis proposes nonparametric models for question answering that disentangle logic from knowledge ...

Using Graph Theoretical Methods And Traceroute To Visually Represent Hidden Networks, Jordan M. Sahs

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Within the scope of a Wide Area Network (WAN), a large geographical communication network in which a collection of networking devices communicate data to each other, an example being the spanning communication network, known as the Internet, around continents. Within WANs exists a collection of Routers that transfer network packets to other devices. An issue pertinent to WANs is their immeasurable size and density, as we are not sure of the amount, or the scope, of all the devices that exists within the network. By tracing the routes and transits of data that traverses within the WAN, we can identify ...


A Practical Comparison Of Quantum And Classical Leaderless Consensus, Paul Robert GRIFFIN, Dimple MEVADA 2022 Singapore Management University

A Practical Comparison Of Quantum And Classical Leaderless Consensus, Paul Robert Griffin, Dimple Mevada

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

Quantum computing is coming of age and being explored in many business areas for either solving difficult problems or improving business processes. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is now embedded in many businesses and continues to mature. Consensus, at the heart of DLTs, has practical scaling issues and, as we move into needing bigger datasets, bigger networks and more security, the problem is ever increasing. Consensus agreement is a non-deterministic problem which is a good match to quantum computers due to the probabilistic nature of quantum phenomena. In this paper, we show that quantum nodes entangled in a variety of network ...


Decomposing Generation Networks With Structure Prediction For Recipe Generation, Hao WANG, Guosheng LIN, Steven C. H. HOI, Chunyan MIAO 2022 Singapore Management University

Decomposing Generation Networks With Structure Prediction For Recipe Generation, Hao Wang, Guosheng Lin, Steven C. H. Hoi, Chunyan Miao

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

Recipe generation from food images and ingredients is a challenging task, which requires the interpretation of the information from another modality. Different from the image captioning task, where the captions usually have one sentence, cooking instructions contain multiple sentences and have obvious structures. To help the model capture the recipe structure and avoid missing some cooking details, we propose a novel framework: Decomposing Generation Networks (DGN) with structure prediction, to get more structured and complete recipe generation outputs. Specifically, we split each cooking instruction into several phases, and assign different sub-generators to each phase. Our approach includes two novel ideas ...

An Investigation Into, And The Construction Of, An Operable Windows Notifier, Grey Hixson

Computer Science and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

The Office of Sustainability at the University of Arkansas identified that building occupants that have control over operable windows may open them at inappropriate times. Windows opened in a building with a temperature and air differential leads to increased HVAC operating costs and building occupant discomfort. This led the Associate Vice Chancellor of Facilities at the University of Arkansas to propose the construction of a mobile application that a building occupant can use to make an informed decision before opening their window. I have formulated a series of research objectives in conjunction with the Director of the Office of Sustainability ...

Despite this rise in prevalence, the ability to automatically moderate online discussion platforms has seen minimal development. Recently, though, as the capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) continue to improve, the potential of AI-based detection of harmful internet content has become a real possibility. In the past couple years, there has been a surge in performance on tasks in the field of natural language processing, mainly due to the development of ...


Implementing The Cms+ Sports Rankings Algorithm In A Javafx Environment, Luke Welch 2022 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Implementing The Cms+ Sports Rankings Algorithm In A Javafx Environment, Luke Welch

Industrial Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

Every year, sports teams and athletes get cut from championship opportunities because of their rank. While this reality is easier to swallow if a team or athlete is distant from the cut, it is much harder when they are right on the edge. Many times, it leaves fans and athletes wondering, “Why wasn’t I ranked higher? What factors when into the ranking? Are the rankings based on opinion alone?” These are fair questions that deserve an answer. Many times, sports rankings are derived from opinion polls. Other times, they are derived from a combination of opinion polls and measured ...

College Of Education Filemaker Extraction And End-User Database Development, Andrew Tran 2022 California State University, San Bernardino

College Of Education Filemaker Extraction And End-User Database Development, Andrew Tran

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

The College of Education (CoE) at the California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) developed a system to keep track of both state and national accreditation requirements using FileMaker 5, a database system. This accreditation data is crucial for reporting and record-keeping for the CSU Chancellor’s Office as well as the State of California. However, the database system was developed several decades ago, and software support has long since been dropped, causing the CoE’s legacy accreditation data to be at risk of being lost should the software or hardware suffer permanent failure. The purpose of this project was to ...


Performance Comparison Of The Filesystem And Embedded Key-Value Databases, Jesse Hines, Nicholas Cunningham 2022 Southern Adventist University

Performance Comparison Of The Filesystem And Embedded Key-Value Databases, Jesse Hines, Nicholas Cunningham

Campus Research Day

A common scenario when developing local applications is storing many records and then retrieving them by ID. A developer can simply save the records as files or use an embedded database. Large numbers of files can slow down filesystems, but developers may want to avoid a dependency on an embedded database if it offers little benefit for their use case. We will compare the performance for the insert, update, get and delete operations and the space efficiency of storing records as files vs. using key-value embedded databases including RocksDB, LevelDB, Berkley DB, and SQLite.


Database Query Execution Through Virtual Reality, Logan Bateman, Marc Butler 2022 Southern Adventist University

Database Query Execution Through Virtual Reality, Logan Bateman, Marc Butler

Campus Research Day

Building database queries often requires technical knowledge of a query language. However, company employees, such as executives, managers, and others (outside of software research and development, generally) may not have the pre-required knowledge to accurately construct and execute database queries. This paper proposes an approach to constructing database queries using virtual reality. This approach utilizes natural hand or controller gestures which map to various components of building and visualizing database queries.


Realtime Visualization Of Kafka Architectures, Matthew Jensen, Miro Manestar 2022 Southern Adventist University

Realtime Visualization Of Kafka Architectures, Matthew Jensen, Miro Manestar

Campus Research Day

Apache Kafka specializes in the transfer of incredibly large amounts of data in real-time between devices. However, it can be difficult to comprehend the inner workings of Kafka. Often, to get real-time data, a user must run complicated commands from within the Kafka CLI. Our contribution is a tool that monitors Kafka consumers, producers, and topics, and displays the flow of events between them in a web-based dashboard. This dashboard serves to reduce the complexity of Kafka and enables users unfamiliar with the platform and protocol to better understand how their architecture is configured.
