BACKGROUND Because effective prediction of survival time can be highly beneficial for the treatment of glioblastoma patients, the relationship between survival time and multiple patient characteristics has been investigated. In this paper, we investigate whether the predictive power of a survival model based on clinical patient features improves when MRI(More)
Case selection is a useful approach for increasing the efficiency and performance of case-based classifiers. Multiple techniques have been designed to perform case selection. This paper empirically investigates how class imbalance in the available set of training cases can impact the performance of the resulting classifier as well as properties of the(More)
Earth-observing remote sensing data, including aerial photography and satellite imagery, offer a snapshot of the world from which we can learn about the state of natural resources and the built environment. The components of energy systems that are visible from above can be automatically assessed with these remote sensing data when processed with machine(More)
Computational Intelligence-Machine Learning (CIML) is a mature discipline with a wide range of potential applications. Many state-of-the-art methods developed in CIML, however, remain unused outside the relatively small groups of researchers in which they originate. This can be attributed to lack of communication between disciplines, difficulty of use,(More)
—Forward-looking ground-penetrating radar (FLGPR) has recently been investigated as a remote sensing modality for buried target detection (e.g., landmines). In this context, raw FLGPR data is beamformed into images and then computerized algorithms are applied to automatically detect subsurface buried targets. Most existing algorithms are supervised, meaning(More)
— The quantity of small scale solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays in the United States has grown rapidly in recent years. As a result, there is substantial interest in high quality information about the quantity, power capacity, and energy generated by such arrays, including at a high spatial resolution (e.g., counties, cities, or even smaller regions).(More)
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is one of the most popular and successful sensing modalities that has been investigated for landmine and subsurface threat detection. Many of the detection algorithms applied to this task are supervised and therefore require labeled examples of target and non-target data for training. Training data most often consists of(More)
