It is clear that the current attempts at using algorithms to create artificial neural networks have had mixed success at best when it comes to creating large networks and/or complex behavior. This should not be unexpected, as creating an artificial brain is essentially a design problem. Human design ingenuity still surpasses computational design for most(More)
This paper presents DrawCompileEvolve, a web-based drawing tool which allows users to draw simple primitive shapes, group them together or define patterns in their groupings (e.g. symmetry, repetition). The user's vector drawing is then compiled into an indirectly encoded genetic representation, which can be evolved interactively, allowing the user to(More)
A method for evaluating a variety of alternative biologically plausible effects functions through the use of simulation studies conducted on personal-monitor exposure data is described. Using magnetic field time series collected with EMDEX instruments, we demonstrate how the method can be used to explore 1) how the outputs from various effects functions(More)
In a context of explosive development in Internet scale and excessive underutilization of a large number of network elements, the power consumption issues of the current Internet have become hot subjects extensively concerned by ICT (Information and Communication Technology) sector and research institutions in recent years, which even further lead to the(More)
In recent years, the rapid development of the Internet has provided people with more and more convenience. However, meanwhile a tremendous energy consumption problem and a low energy efficiency problem in the networks still exist. With the continuous expansion of the network scale, these problems are increasingly more severe. In order to achieve the "green"(More)
Although the local application of mitomycin C may prevent epidural adhesion after laminectomy, mitomycin C can induce neurotoxicity in optic and acoustic nerves at high concentrations. To determine the safe concentration range for mitomycin C, cotton pads soaked with mitomycin C at different concentrations (0.1, 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 mg/mL) were immediately(More)
The dynamics of SEIR epidemic model with saturated incidence rate and saturated treatment function are explored in this paper. The basic reproduction number that determines disease extinction and disease survival is given. The existing threshold conditions of all kinds of the equilibrium points are obtained. Sufficient conditions are established for the(More)
This paper described the discovering process of some shortcomings of the conventional fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) process and the proposed two-stage riser (TSR) FCC process for decreasing dry gas and coke yields and increasing light oil yield, which has been successfully applied in 12 industrial units. Furthermore, the multifunc-tional two-stage riser(More)
For the past years, the energy overconsumption problems, arising from the rapid growth of Internet scale and services types, are becoming more and more serious. In this context, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector has given an extensive concern to the research on green networking. From an energy-saving point of view for Internet, this(More)
