'Understanding context is vital' [1] and 'context is key' [2] signal the key interest in the context detection field. One important challenge in this area is automatically detecting the user's task because once it is known it is possible to support her better. In this paper we propose an ontology-based user interaction context model (UICO) that enhances the(More)
The Transition-based RRT (T-RRT) algorithm enables to solve motion planning problems involving configuration spaces over which cost functions are defined, or cost spaces for short. T-RRT has been successfully applied to diverse problems in robotics and structural biology. In this paper, we aim at enhancing T-RRT to solve ever more difficult problems(More)
INTRODUCTION Protein-ligand interactions play key roles in various metabolic pathways, and the proteins involved in these interactions represent major targets for drug discovery. Molecular docking is widely used to predict the structure of protein-ligand complexes, and protein flexibility stands out as one of the most important and challenging issues for(More)
We present an individual-based predator-prey model with, for the first time, each agent behavior being modeled by a fuzzy cognitive map (FCM), allowing the evolution of the agent behavior through the epochs of the simulation. The FCM enables the agent to evaluate its environment (e.g., distance to predator or prey, distance to potential breeding partner,(More)
This paper addresses the problem of improving the performance of the Rapidly-exploring Random Tree (RRT) algorithm by parallelizing it. For scalability reasons we do so on a distributed-memory architecture, using the message-passing paradigm. We present three parallel versions of RRT along with the technicalities involved in their implementation. We also(More)
We have developed an individual-based evolving predator-prey ecosystem simulation that integrates, for the first time, a complex individual behaviour model, an evolutionary mechanism and a speciation process, at an acceptable computational cost. In this article, we analyse the species abundance patterns observed in the communities generated by our(More)
—Performing aerial 6-dimensional manipulation using flying robots is a challenging problem, to which only little work has been devoted. This paper proposes a motion planning approach for the reliable 6-dimensional quasi-static manipulation with an aerial towed-cable system. The novelty of this approach lies in the use of a cost-based motion-planning(More)
Protein-ligand interactions taking place far away from the active site, during ligand binding or release, may determine molecular specificity and activity. However, obtaining information about these interactions with experimental or computational methods remains difficult. The computational tool presented in this article, MoMA-LigPath, is based on a(More)
This paper addresses the problem of parallelizing the Rapidly-exploring Random Tree (RRT) algorithm on large-scale distributed-memory architectures, using the message passing interface. We compare three parallel versions of RRT based on classical parallelization schemes. We evaluate them on different motion-planning problems and analyze the various factors(More)
Increasing the productivity of a knowledge worker via intelligent applications requires the identification of a user's current work task, i.e. the current work context a user resides in. In this work we present and evaluate machine learning based work task detection methods. By viewing a work task as sequence of digital interaction patterns of mouse clicks(More)
