This paper describes a real-time stereo vision system that is required to support high-level object based tasks in a tele-operated environment. Stereo vision is computationally expensive, due to having to find corresponding pixels. Correlation is a fast, standard way to solve the correspondence problem. This paper analyses the behaviour of correlation based(More)
Single clustering methods have often been used to elucidate clusters in high dimensional medical data, even though reliance on a single algorithm is known to be problematic. In this paper, we present a methodology to determine a set of 'core classes' by using a range of techniques to reach consensus across several different clustering algorithms, and to(More)
Intelligent systems are increasingly being deployed in medicine and healthcare, but there is a need for a robust and objective methodology for evaluating such systems. Potentially, receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis could form a basis for the objective evaluation of intelligent medical systems. However, it has several weaknesses when applied(More)
Camera motion estimation is useful for a range of applications. Usually, feature tracking is performed through the sequence of images to determine correspondences. Furthermore , robust statistical techniques are normally used to handle large number of outliers in correspondences. This paper proposes a new method that avoids both. Motion is calculated(More)
This paper describes two implementations of a potential field sharing multi-robot system which we term as pessimistic and optimistic. Unlike other multi-robot systems in which coordination is designed explicitly, it is an emergent property of our system. The robots perform no reasoning and are purely re-active in nature. We extend our previous work in(More)
Post-translational histone modifications are known to be altered in cancer cells, and loss of selected histone acetylation and methylation marks has recently been shown to predict patient outcome in human carcinoma. Immunohistochemistry was used to detect a series of histone lysine acetylation (H3K9ac, H3K18ac, H4K12ac, and H4K16ac), lysine methylation(More)
Statistical analysis of DNA microarray data provides a valuable diagnostic tool for the investigation of genetic components of diseases. To take advantage of the multitude of available data sets and analysis methods, it is desirable to combine both different algorithms and data from different studies. Applying ensemble learning, consensus clustering and(More)
The OWA operator proposed by Yager has been widely used to aggregate experts' opinions or preferences in human decision making. Yager's traditional OWA operator focuses exclusively on the aggregation of crisp numbers. However, experts usually tend to express their opinions or preferences in a very natural way via linguistic terms. These linguistic terms can(More)
Ordering exams by simultaneously considering two ordering criteria using a fuzzy expert system is presented in this paper. Combinations of two of the three ordering criteria largest degree, saturation degree and largest enrollment are considered. The fuzzy weight of an exam is used to represent how difficult it is to schedule. The decreasingly ordered exams(More)
Gravity profoundly influences plant growth and development. Plants respond to changes in orientation by using gravitropic responses to modify their growth. Cholodny and Went hypothesized over 80 years ago that plants bend in response to a gravity stimulus by generating a lateral gradient of a growth regulator at an organ's apex, later found to be auxin.(More)
