Current application of conformal prediction in drug discovery
Ahlberg E., Hammar O., Bendtsen C., Carlsson L. Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence 81(1-2): 145-154, 2017. Type: Article
Conformal prediction (CP) is a general method widely applied in machine learning. In general, it uses previous experience/data to predict unknown data to a prescribed confidence level. In this paper, the authors describe how the CP method is appli...
Protein fold recognition based on sparse representation based classification
Artificial Intelligence in Medicine 79 1-8, 2017. Type: Article
It is not reasonable to expect the sequence of amino acids to predict folding because many proteins with similar foldings have quite different sequences. To address this issue, this paper describes how sparse representation classification (SRC) ca...
Energy-efficient context aware power management with asynchronous protocol for body sensor network
Magno M., Polonelli T., Casamassima F., Gomez A., Farella E., Benini L. Mobile Networks and Applications 22(5): 814-824, 2017. Type: Article
Magno et al. address a challenging issue of wearable devices for fitness and health tracking: low-power resources and wireless communication. The lifetime of these devices is limited by the small energy storage components that supply the wearable ...
A generalized design of distributed rateless codes with decreasing ripple size for multiple-access relay networks
Liao J., Zhang L., Li T., Wang J., Qi Q. Wireless Networks 23(7): 2177-2188, 2017. Type: Article
Channel coding is a fundamental technology in wireless communication, which has attracted the efforts of many researchers around the world since its emergence. Fountain codes, with their exclusive features for long distances and a priori unknown c...
Cloud service benchmarking: measuring quality of cloud services from a client perspective
Bermbach D., Wittern E., Tai S., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 167 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319554-82-2)
Cloud computing is now quite well known. As in the case of some other technologies and product innovations related to computing (for example, blockchain or the World Wide Web), it has been driven largely by industry, with very limited contribution...
Design of interpretable fuzzy systems
Cpałka K., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 196 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319528-80-9)
Data scientists are mainly required to extract valuable knowledge from data. To this end, intelligent systems are often designed for knowledge extraction and representation. This poses a number of challenges, including the ability of end users to ...
Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: foundations of cryptocurrency and blockchain programming for beginners
Dannen C., Apress, New York, NY, 2017. 185 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484225-34-9)
Bitcoin and other blockchain variants like Ethereum are currently garnering a tremendous amount of professional and public interest. While this undoubtedly is, in part, due to their financial (highly speculative) rise, I was curious to learn more ...
Waves: a fast multi-tier top-
query processing algorithm
Daoud C., Silva de Moura E., Fernandes D., Soares da Silva A., Rossi C., Carvalho A. Information Retrieval 20(3): 292-316, 2017. Type: Article
Daoud and colleagues propose and demonstrate the effectiveness of their innovative waves algorithm, a fast multitier top-
query processing algorithm. In the waves algorithm, the entire document collection is divided into disjoi...
Distrust seed set propagation algorithm to detect web spam
Goh K., Patchmuthu R., Singh A. Journal of Intelligent Information Systems 49(2): 213-235, 2017. Type: Article
The Internet has become an integral part of the infrastructure of modern society. There have been over one billion websites on the web. To locate webpages closely related to one’s interests, people commonly employ handy search engines. While...
Phrase mining from massive text and its applications
Liu J., Shang J., Han J., Morgan & Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2017. 90 pp. Type: Book (978-1-627058-98-8)
The extraction of what the authors call “quality phrases” from text is the topic of discussion in this monograph. To get an idea of what is meant by “quality” for a phrase, consider the three-word phrase “relational d...
