Boosting is a very successful classification algorithm that produces a linear combination of "weak" classifiers (a.k.a. base learners) to obtain high quality classification models. In this paper we propose a new boosting algorithm where base learners have structure relationships in the functional space. Though such relationships are generic, our work is(More)
Multi-task learning (MTL) aims to enhance the generalization performance of supervised regression or classification by learning multiple related tasks simultaneously. In this paper, we aim to extend the current MTL techniques to high dimensional data sets with structured input and structured output (SISO), where the SI means the input features are(More)
Determining anomalies in data streams that are collected and transformed from various types of networks has recently attracted significant research interest. Principal component analysis (PCA) has been extensively applied to detecting anomalies in network data streams. However, none of existing PCA-based approaches addresses the problem of identifying the(More)

Information Flow Studies analyze the principles and mechanisms of social information distribution and is an essential research topic in social networks. Traditional approaches are primarily based on the social network graph topology. However, topology itself can not accurately reflect the user interests or activities. In this paper, we adopt a(More)
In order to examine how a medical service system supports the patient care processes, we aim to construct a representative process model for a set of care processes observed in a Belgian University Hospital. Considering the complexity of the care process, this study is focused on the pre-operation care processes for the patients who pass through the(More)
