Different Tone-Mapping operators (TMOs) produce different Low Dynamic Range (LDR) images based on a single High Dynamic Range (HDR) image. The Tone-Mapped image Quality Index (TMQI) algorithm provides a quantitative means of assessing the quality of resultant LDR images. In this paper we test the hypothesis that TMQI predictions of human image quality can(More)
BACKGROUND West Nile Virus (WNV) was first isolated in 1937. Since the 1950s, many outbreaks have occurred in various countries. The first appearance of infected birds in Manitoba, Canada was in 2002. OBJECTIVE This paper describes the data preparation phase of setting up a geographic information system (GIS) simulation environment for WNV Agent-Based(More)
A large scale agent-based model of common Facebook users was designed to develop an understanding of the underlying mechanism of information diffusion within online social networks at a micro-level analysis. The agent-based model network structure is based on a sample from Facebook. Using an erased configuration model and the idea of common neighbours, a(More)
In many non-deterministic search algorithms, particularly those analogous to complex biological systems, there are a number of inherent difficulties, and the Bees Algorithm (BA) is no exception. The BA is a population-based metaheuristic search algorithm inspired by bees seeking nectar/pollen. Basic versions and variations of the BA have their own(More)
