The impact of multi-mappings in short read mapping
Determining the DNA sequence of an organism is an essential step in many biological studies. The high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies break the DNA molecule randomly into many small fragments and determine the ...
Machine learning with adversarial perturbations and noisy labels
Machine learning models such as traditional random forests (RFs) and modern deep neural networks (DNNs) have been successfully used to solve complex learning problems in many applications such as speech recognition, image ...
Cost-efficient resource provisioning for large-scale graph processing systems in cloud computing environments
A large amount of data that is being generated on Internet every day is in the form of graphs. Many services and applications namely as social networks, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile applications, business applications, ...
Optimizing projection in the situation calculus
Among the most frequent reasoning tasks in the situation calculus are projection queries that query the truth of conditions in a future state of affairs. However, in long running action sequences involving thousands or ...
Towards highly accurate publication information extraction from academic homepages
More and more researchers list their research profiles in academic homepages online. Publications from a researcher's academic homepage contain rich information, such as the researcher's fields of expertise, research ...
Policy learning for task-oriented dialogue systems via reinforcement learning techniques
Task-oriented dialogue systems such as Apple Siri and Microsoft Cortana are becoming increasingly popular and are attracting much attention. Task-oriented dialogue systems aim to serve people as virtual personal assistants. ...
Discrete optimization over graph problems
Discrete optimization problems are ubiquitous both in industry and theoretical computer science. They appear in a wide range of fields, such as manufacturing, planning, packing, design and scheduling. It is often the case ...
Protecting organizational knowledge: a strategic perspective framework
Organizational knowledge is considered a valuable resource for providing competitive advantage. Extensive research has been done on strategies to encourage knowledge creation and sharing. However, limited research has been ...
Supporting bodily communication in video consultations of physiotherapy
Physiotherapists are increasingly organising video consultations to support their patients over-a-distance. Physiotherapy is all about movements, and physiotherapists work on improving the subtle differences in the movements ...
Development and evaluation of a semantic-based access framework for health record linkage
Record linkage is the task of finding records in data sources that refer to the same entity across those different resources. In the health domain, record linkage is commonly used for identifying records belonging to the ...
