An understanding of how people perceive attractive or unattractive places in cities is vitally important to urban planning and policy making. Given the subjective nature of human perception and the ambiguous character of attractiveness as an attribute of urban places, it is challenging to quantify and reliably assess the extent to which a place...

In this paper, two alternative methods to the Inverse Kinematics problem are compared to traditional methods regarding computation time, accuracy, and convergence rate. The test domain is the arm of the NAO humanoid robot. The results show that FABRIK, a heuristic iterative approximation algorithm outperforms the two traditional methods, which...

This paper presents a learning Dempster-Shafer model for the detection of buildings in aerial image and range data. The process of evidence assignment in the Dempster-Shafer method is implemented through membership functions in an adaptive network-based fuzzy inference system, where a back propagation learning rule is employed to tune the...

With the increasing availability of ADS-B transponders on commercial aircraft, as well as the rapidly growing deployment of ground stations that provide public access to their data, accessing open aircraft flight data is becoming easier for researchers. Given the large number of operational aircraft, significant amounts of flight data can be...

The task of network traffic monitoring has evolved drastically with the ever-increasing amount of data flowing in large scale networks. The automated analysis of this tremendous source of information often comes with using simpler models on aggregated data (e.g. IP flow records) due to time and space constraints. A step towards utilizing IP flow...

In the MLUE method (reported in Shrestha et al. [1, 2]) we run a hydrological model M for multiple realizations of parameters vectors (Monte Carlo simulations), and use this data to build a machine learning model V to predict uncertainty (quantiles) of the model M output. In this paper, for model V, we employ three machine learning techniques,...

The present study aims to add to the literature on driver workload prediction using machine learning methods. The main aim is to develop workload prediction on a multi-class basis, rather than a binary high/low distinction as often found in litearature. The presented approach relies on measures that can be obtained unobtrusively in the driving...

In this project we explore the presence of ambiguity in textual and visual media and its influence on accurately understanding and<br/>capturing bias in news. We study this topic in the context of supporting<br/>media scholars and social scientists in their media analysis. Our focus<br/>lies on racial and gender bias as well as framing and the...

Building datasets (e.g. footprints in OpenStreetMap and 3D city models) are becoming increasingly available worldwide. However, the thematic (attribute) aspect is not always given attention, as many of such datasets are lacking in completeness of attributes. A prominent attribute of buildings is the year of construction, which is useful for some...

Bias is inevitable and inherent in any form of communication. News often appear biased to citizens with dierent political orientations, and understood dierently by news media scholars and the broader public. In this paper we advocate the need for accurate methods for bias identication in video news item, to enable rich analytics capabilities in...

Cancer is a genetic disease. Step-wise alteration of genes that have a normal function in the cell can lead to the transformation of a healthy cell into a malignant cancer cell. Cancer genes provide several traits to the cell that allow it to become malignant. These traits have been researched for many years, and currently one knows quite well...

Scale is an important parameter of images. Different objects or image structures (e.g. edges and corners) can appear at different scales and each is meaningful only over a limited range of scales. Multi-scale analysis has been widely used in image processing and computer vision, serving as the basis for many high-level image analysis systems....

The development of high-throughput measurement techniques resulted in rapidlyincreasing amounts of biological data, which made computational methodsessential for biological research. Hence, the field of bioinformatics emergedthat since plays an important role in storing, making accessible, integrating,and analysing different types of biological...

The very basis of this thesis is the collective behavior of ants in colonies. Ants are an excellent example of how rather simple behavior on a local level can lead to complex behavior on a global level that is beneficial for the individuals. The key in the self-organization of ants is communication through pheromones. When an ant forages for...

To facilitate finding of relevant information in ever-growing multimedia collections, a number of multimedia information retrieval solutions have been proposed over the past years. The essential element of any such solution is the relevance criterion deployed to select or rank the items from a multimedia collection to be presented to the user....

Multiple instance learning (MIL) is an extension of supervised learning where the objects are represented by sets (bags) of feature vectors (instances) rather than individual feature vectors. For example, an image can be represented by a bag of instances, where each instance is a patch in that image. Only bag labels are given, however, the...

On many websites users can personally contribute information, ranging from short text messages to photos and videos. Users can see the information contributed by others and respond to it. These social media actively engage their community in the structuring of the collection by making use of collaborative annotation methods. Next to an improved...

Reservoir operation is a multi-objective optimization problem traditionally solved with dynamic programming (DP) and stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) algorithms. The thesis presents novel algorithms for optimal reservoir operation named nested DP (nDP), nested SDP (nSDP), nested reinforcement learning (nRL) and their multi-objective (MO)...

The thesis treats classification problems which are undersampled or where there exist an unbalance between classes in the sampling. The thesis is divided into three parts. The first two parts treat the problem of one-class classification. In the one-class classification problem, it is assumed that only examples of one of the classes, the target...
