The performance of a classification system depends on various aspects, including encoding techniques. In fact, encoding techniques play a primary role in the process of tuning a classifier/predictor, as choosing the most appropriate encoder may greatly affect its performance. As of now, evaluating the impact of an encoding technique on a classification(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous studies demonstrated that carotid plaques analyzed by CTA can show contrast plaque enhancement. The purpose of this preliminary work was to evaluate the possible association between the fissured fibrous cap and contrast plaque enhancement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-seven consecutive (men = 25; average age = 66.8 ± 9(More)
Taxonomies are becoming essential in several fields, playing an important role in a large number of applications, particularly for specific domains. Taxonomies provide efficient tools to people by organizing a huge amount of information into a small hierarchical structure. Taxonomies were originally built by hand, but nowadays the technology permits to(More)
Systems for assessing the classification complexity of a dataset have received increasing attention in research activities on pattern recognition. These systems typically aim at quantifying the overall complexity of a domain, with the goal of comparing different datasets. In this work, we propose a method for partitioning a dataset into regions of different(More)
