This work analyses context effect in the evaluation of music similarity performed by human annotators to better understand the impact of context effects in the current annotation protocol of Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX). Human annotators are known to be subjective when giving similarity judgements. The Audio Music...

Successful delivery of projects is the ultimate goal of many organisations. What is observed in practice, however, is that projects do not usually follow what is recommended in literature. Moreover, the dynamic nature of projects calls for continuous adjustments regarding the required project management practices contributing to performance....

Many types of database management systems exist, but finding the one that is right for a specific use case is becoming increasingly more difficult. Benchmarks allow one to compare various systems, but in a world where distributed DBMSs are increasingly used for mission critical purposes, we find most existing benchmarks neglect fault tolerance...

Decision-tree evaluation is a widely-used classification approach known for its simplicity and effectiveness. Decision-tree models are shown to be helpful in classifying instances of fraud, malware, or diseases and can be used to make dynamic, flexible access decisions within an access-control system. These applications often require sensitive...

To be able to solve the increasingly complex problems, governments need to collaborate with various parties. This way of policy development is called interactive policy making. Citizen participation is a specific form of interactive policy making and focusses on involving citizens in the policy making process. A relatively new online...

The music information retrieval community has long recognized the need for better evaluation. Frameworks as comprehensive as in the field of text retrieval are missing. An important problem of evaluation for music retrieval is the high cost. This work continues on the proposed low-cost evaluation model. The low-cost model allows for cheap...

Global hydrological models (GHMs) have become an increasingly valuable tool in a range of global impact studies related to water resources. However, glacier parameterization is often overly simplistic or non-existent in GHMs. The representation of glacier dynamics and evolution, including related products such as glacier runoff, can be improved...

Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) is a geothermal technique that is an important component in the transition towards renewable energy in the heating and cooling industry, which accounts for half of the world's energy consumption. However, the technology has not yet been implemented in many countries. The main reason is that extensive...

Commercial FSI solvers employ partitioned FSI, wherein CFD and CSM solvers are used sequentially to resolve the coupling of interface displacement and stress/force. For strongly coupled problems, multiple sub-iterations of both the solvers are required for a stable and accurate solution. IQN-ILS framework requires fewer sub-iterations for...

Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) is a new method to assess the desirability of government projects. In a PVE, individuals select their preferred portfolio of government projects given a constrained public budget. Individuals’ preferences for (the impacts of) government projects can be determined based on these choices. The obtained...

Many calibrated hydrological models are inconsistent with the behavioral functions of catchments and do not fully represent the catchments’ underlying processes despite their seemingly adequate performance, if measured by traditional statistical error metrics. Using such metrics for calibration is hindered if only short-term data are...

The quality of the indoor environment has become a vital component for buildings due to the time spent indoors. To this extent, the performance of the indoor environment is considered as part of the greenery criteria by green rating schemes such as the Green Building Index in Malaysia. This study aims to investigate and assess the quality of the...

Users' perception of geographic space depends heavily on geographic information systems (GIS). GIS are the most common way for users to estimate travel time, provide routing information and recommend appropriate forms of transportation. This article analyses how predictions made by Google Maps, one of the most popular GIS, influence users'...

Current developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) led to a resurgence of Explainable AI (XAI). New methods are being researched to obtain information from AI systems in order to generate explanations for their output. However, there is an overall lack of valid and reliable evaluations of the effects on users' experience of, and behavior in...

While the field of electricity price forecasting has benefited from plenty of contributions in the last two decades, it arguably lacks a rigorous approach to evaluating new predictive algorithms. The latter are often compared using unique, not publicly available datasets and across too short and limited to one market test samples. The...

To achieve a successful energy transition, it is vital to integrate citizens’ needs into government policies through participatory processes. However, offline participatory approaches can be overly intensive which leads to an over-representation of citizens who think that the issue is in their immediate interest. Hence, elected officials often...

BACKGROUND: The Human-Centered Design methodology advocates VR prototyping, as an effective tool to evaluate concepts in a cost-efficient, time-saving way. It is the question of whether it works in the development of a product intended to increase privacy while flying. OBJECTIVE: The current study aims at the application of virtual reality on...

Nature-based solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological risks (HMRs) reduction and management are becoming increasingly popular, but challenges such as the lack of well-recognised standard methodologies to evaluate their performance and upscale their implementation remain. We systematically evaluate the current state-of-the art on the models...

In this article, we report on eight grand challenges for value sensitive design, which were developed at a one-week workshop, Value Sensitive Design: Charting the Next Decade, Lorentz Center, Leiden, The Netherlands, November 14–18, 2016. A grand challenge is a substantial problem, opportunity, or question that motives sustained research and...

Accessibility is usually evaluated using indicators calculated from spatial data. However, perceived accessibility, defined as the perceived potential to participate in spatially dispersed opportunities, is often poorly reflected by these calculated measures. This paper sets out to explain the mechanisms that lead to these mismatches. A...
