Our group participated in the categorization task of the TREC Genomics Track. We introduced and investigated a cluster-based approach for classifying documents. We first clustered the abstracts of the negative training examples based on their term distribution, then built a classifier to distinguish between each cluster and the set of positive examples. The… (More)
Determining the optimum input parameter settings (temperature, rotational velocity and feed rate) in optimizing the properties (strength and time) of the nano-drilling process can result in an improvement in its environmental performance. This is because the rotational velocity is an essential component of power consumption during drilling and therefore by… (More)
— Optical burst switching (OBS) is a promising technology for the next generation optical Internet. A buffer-less OBS network can be implemented using ordinary optical communication equipment without the need for either wavelength converters or optical memories. However, OBS networks suffer from a relatively high blocking probability, a primary metric of… (More)
