A stochastic optimization model for designing last Mile relief networks
In this study, we introduce a distribution network design problem that determines the locations and capacities of the relief distribution points in the last mile network, while considering demand- and network-related ...
A profit-driven Artificial Neural Network (ANN) with applications to fraud detection and direct marketing
The rapid growth in data capture and computational power has led to an increasing focus on data-driven research. So far, most of the research is focused on predictive modeling using statistical optimization, while profit ...
Stage: stereotypical trust assessment through graph extraction
Bootstrapping trust assessment where there is little or no evidence regarding a subject is a significant challenge for existing trust and reputation systems. When direct or indirect evidence is absent, existing approaches ...
Selective routing for post-disaster needs assessments
(Springer International Publishing, 2016)
In the immediate aftermath of a disaster, relief agencies perform needs assessment operations to investigate the effects of the disaster and understand the needs of the affected communities. Since assessments must be ...
Cross-lingual speaker adaptation for statistical speech synthesis using limited data
Cross-lingual speaker adaptation with limited adaptation data has many applications such as use in speech-to-speech translation systems. Here, we focus on cross-lingual adaptation for statistical speech synthesis (SSS) ...
Mitigating the impact of drug shortages for a healthcare facility: An inventory management approach
Despite the importance and value of the pharmaceutical market, a significant portion of procurement spending including pharmaceuticals are lost. Coupling poor and reactive management practices with the inevitable national ...
Mutual radiation impedance of circular CMUTs on a cylinder
In ultrasound imaging, cross coupling of transducer elements through the medium has significant effect on the frequency response, thus affecting the quality of the ultrasound image. In Side-Looking Intravascular Ultrasound ...
The penetration of acoustic cavitation bubbles into micrometer-scale cavities
The penetration of acoustically induced cavitation bubbles in micrometer-scale cavities is investigated experimentally by means of high-speed photography and acoustic measurements. Micrometer-scale cavities of different ...
Analysis of perlite and pumice based building insulation materials
Insulation panels composed of perlite, pumice, and cement were fabricated. Perlite and pumice were used to achieve high thermal resistance, and low density. Experimentation was conducted for determining R-values of ...
