Infrared thermography is a nondestructive evaluation technique in which the specimen surface is thermally stimulated to produce a temperature difference between "sound" (free of defects) areas and eventual defective regions. It is well known that the thermographic methods based on the thermal contrast are strongly affected by non-uniform heating at the(More)
The Bacterial Foraging Optimization Algorithm is a swarm intelligence technique which models the individual and group foraging policies of the E. Coli bacteria as a distributed optimization process. The algorithm is structurally complex due to its nested loop architecture and includes several parameters whose selection deeply influences the result. This(More)
This paper presents a comparison among three methods for Steady-State Visually Evoked Potentials (SSVEP) detection. These techniques are based on Power Spectral Density Analysis (PSDA) and Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA). The first method estimates the signal-to-noise ratio of the power spectrum in each stimulus frequency using PSDA, which is called(More)
This paper presents an artificial beehive algorithm for optimization in continuous search spaces based on a model aimed at individual bee behavior. The algorithm defines a set of behavioral rules for each agent to determine what kind of actions must be carried out. Also, the algorithm proposed includes some adaptations not considered in the biological model(More)
