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 ...
Pricing decisions in a strategic single retailer/dual suppliers setting under order size constraints
(Informa Group, 2016)
In this paper, we study a duopolistic market of suppliers competing for the business of a retailer. The retailer sets the order cycle and quantities from each supplier to minimize its annual costs. Different from other ...
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) ...
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 ...
Visual tracking of biopsy needles in 2D ultrasound images
Ultrasound (US) is one the most commonly used medical imaging techniques in percutaneous needle procedures. However, US images are inherently noisy and contain excessive number of artifacts. Hence, it is not easy to track ...
High throughput graphics processing unit based Fano decoder
The next-generation high speed wireless technologies, such as WirelessHD, bring the concept of several Gigabits per second data communication. However, forward error correction that takes place at the receiver side has ...
Cooperative visible light communications
(Springer Science+Business Media, 2016)
In this chapter, we explore the concept of cooperative transmissions in the context of visible light communications (VLC). An indoor office space is considered with two light sources; the one at the ceiling is connected ...
