Birds have been widely used as biological indicators for ecological research. They respond quickly to environmental changes and can be used to infer about other organisms (e.g., insects they feed on). Traditional methods for collecting data about birds involves costly human effort. A promising alternative is acoustic monitoring. There are many advantages to… (More)
The integration of 3 major techniques of process induced stress, stress memory technique (SMT), dual stress liners (DSL), and stress proximity technique (SPT), has been demonstrate for advanced CMOS technology. The device performance improvement from each technique and their addability are discussed
In this paper we show how to apply genetic algorithms for data mining of student information obtained in a Web-based Educational Adaptive Hypermedia System. The objective is to obtain interesting association rules so that the teacher can improve the performance of the system. In order to check the proposed algorithm we have used a Web-based Course developed… (More)
Hashing has emerged as a popular technique for large-scale similarity search. Most learning-based hashing methods generate compact yet correlated hash codes. However, this redundancy is storage-inefficient. Hence we propose a lossless variable-length hashing (VLH) method that is both storage-and search-efficient. Storage efficiency is achieved by converting… (More)
The MLSP 2013 Bird Classification Challenge requires participants to predict the set of bird species present in audio clips in a given test set, with the aim of maximizing the micro-AUC score computed from the predictions. This report summarizes the 2nd place solution by team Herbal Candy that achieved a micro-AUC score of 0.95050.
A novel low cost technique to improve device performance by enhanced stress proximity technique (eSPT) with recessed S/D (ReSD) has been demonstrated for the first time. pFET performance improvement of 40% was demonstrated with eSPT. pFET performance with Ion of 520 uA/um at Ioff of InA/um was achieved with the low cost processes. With optimized eSPT, 15%… (More)
This paper aims to identify knowledge management (KM) activities in Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and Small and Medium Industries (SMI) in Malaysia. From the literature, many researchers and KM practitioners have identified knowledge identification, knowledge acquisition, knowledge application, knowledge sharing, knowledge development, knowledge… (More)
