The examination scheduling problem has been examined and a four-phase system using a tabu search algorithm, OTTABU, has been implemented. This system uses both recency-based short-term memory and move (or frequency)-based longer-term memory to improve the quality of the solutions found. The system was tested using real data obtained from the University of… (More)
The current literature of information systems has dealt extensively with all kinds of exceptions. There are several studies defining the concept of exception and even providing classifications. However, no studies provide a method for verifying the rules in order to handle exceptions and to achieve the goals set by an organization's rules. In this paper, a… (More)
Natural language understanding must be an integral part of any automatic speech recognition system that attempts to deal with interactive problem solving. The methods for representing and integrating knowledge from different sources may be valuable for the understanding process as well as speech recognition.
One highly integrated mixed-signal testbed has been developed to demonstrate the concept and realization of advanced System-on-a-Package concept. This experimental system, called Intelligent Network Communicator (INC), deals with three different status of the signals, digital, RF and optical, in a single packaging platform. The INC transmits and receives… (More)
