The Formal Semantics of Program Slicing for Non-Terminating Computations
Since the original development of program slicing in 1979 [.Weiser slices 1979.] there have been many attempts to define a suitable semantics which will precisely define the meaning of a slice. Particular issues include ...
Modeling the risk of invasion and spread of Tuta absoluta in Africa
Tuta absoluta is an invasive insect that originated from South America and has spread to Europe Africa and Asia. Since its detection in Spain in 2006, the pest is continuing to expand its geographical range, including the ...
Utilizing cumulative population distribution information in differential evolution
Differential evolution (DE) is one of the most popular paradigms of evolutionary algorithms. In general, DE does not exploit distribution information provided by the population and, as a result, its search performance is ...
The Anisotropic Elasticity of the Human Vocal Fold
Objective: To verify the anisotropic nature of the vocal folds by reproducing an experiment led by Rholfs that measured vocal fold elasticity in the transverse and longitudinal directions. To present a physiological ...
Learning of Interval and General Type-2 Fuzzy Logic Systems using Simulated Annealing: Theory and Practice
This paper reports the use of simulated annealing to design more efficient fuzzy logic systems to model problems with associated uncertainties. Simulated annealing is used within this work as a method for learning the ...
Quantification of change in vocal fold tissue stiffness relative to depth of artificial damage
(Taylor and Francis, 2016-08-30)
Design and Implementation of Ad-Hoc Collaborative Proxying Scheme for Reducing Network Energy Waste
Network devices are equipped with low power states but they are rarely activated due to their inability of maintaining network connectivity. Recently, Network Connectivity Proxy (NCP) concept has been proposed in literature ...
Privacy and brain-computer interfaces: identifying potential privacy disruptions
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) interpret neural activity, applying it to the control of external devices. As BCIs approach market viability, ethical implications come under consideration. This paper identifies potential ...
Digital Wildfires? Propagation, Verification, Regulation and Responsible Innovation
Social media platforms provide an increasingly popular means for individuals to share content online. Whilst this produces undoubted societal benefits, the ability for content to be spontaneously posted and re-posted creates ...
Resource management in big data initiatives: Processes and dynamic capabilities
Effective management of organizational resources in big data initiatives is of growing importance. Although academic and popular literatures contain many examples of big data initiatives, very few are repeated in the same ...
