Researchers proposed implementing the residential energy scheduling algorithm by training three action dependent heuristic dynamic programming (ADHDP) networks, each one based on a weather type of sunny, partly cloudy, or cloudy. ADHDP networks are considered 'smart,' as their response can change based on different conditions.
Researchers from the State Key Laboratory of Management and Control for Complex Systems, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences have developed an even more expansive haptic interface that allows for seven degrees of movement. The most common haptic interfaces typically have, at most, three degrees of movement.
Engineers and chemists at Hiroshima University successfully used the same technology at the core of facial recognition to design chiral crystals. This is the first study reporting the use of this technology, called logistic regression analysis, to predict which chemical groups are best for making chiral molecules.
Researchers have demonstrated an improved method for audio-analysis machines to process our noisy world. Their approach hinges on the combination of scalograms and spectrograms -- the visual representations of audio -- as well as convolutional neural networks (CNNs), the learning tool machines use to better analyze visual images. In this case, the visual images are used to analyze audio to better identify and classify sound.
Matching unique genetic information from cancer patients' tumors with treatment options -- an emerging area of precision medicine efforts -- often fails to identify all patients who may respond to certain therapies. Other molecular information from patients may reveal these so-called 'hidden responders.'
One out of two mobile apps released is a clone of an existing app. However, new research in the INFORMS journal Information Systems Research shows the success of the original app is not always adversely affected by these clone apps. The study, which was conducted by Carnegie Mellon University researchers, found that whether the copycat app increases or decreases the number of downloads of the original is dependent upon the quality of the copy.
The demand for high performance computing in Ohio is relentless, and it does not discriminate by field. At Thursday's Ohio Supercomputer Center Statewide Users Group (SUG) spring conference, OSC clients in fields spanning everything from astrophysics to linguistics gathered to share research highlights and hear updates about the center's direction and role in supporting science across Ohio.
Columbia University researchers have developed a computational tool that shines a light on the genome's most hard-to-translate segments. With this tool in hand, scientists can get closer to understanding how DNA guides everything from growth and development to aging and disease.
A new 'Focus Feature' collection on protein functions published by PLOS Computational Biology highlights new computational methods for exploring the molecular function of proteins. Launched in 2015, Focus Features aim to spur discussion on specific topics of interest to the computational biology community.
One common assumption in digital marketing is that individuals who are mindful of what's trending on social media, will be responsive to social media advertising. As a result, firms increasingly try to mesh their brand with an emerging trend to get the attention of those who propagate these trends. A new study by researchers from London Business School, MIT Sloan School of Management, and Cass Business School at City, University of London, may change that.
