With the spread of data mining technologies and the accumulation of social data, such technologies and data are being used for determinations that seriously affect individuals’ lives. For example, credit scoring is frequently determined based on the records of past credit data together with statistical prediction techniques. Needless to say, such(More)
This paper introduces a practical index for approximate similarity queries of large multi-dimensional data sets: the spatial approximation sample hierarchy (SASH). A SASH is a multi-level structure of random samples, recursively constructed by building a SASH on a large randomly selected sample of data objects, and then connecting each remaining object to(More)
With the spread of data mining technologies and the accumulation of social data, such technologies and data are being used for determinations that seriously affect people's lives. For example, credit scoring is frequently determined based on the records of past credit data together with statistical prediction techniques. Needless to say, such determinations(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships among delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), muscle damage and inflammatory responses to eccentric exercise and investigate the underlying mechanisms. Nine healthy males performed one-leg calf-raise exercise with their right leg on a force plate. They performed 10 sets of 40 repetitions of exercise(More)
Genetic Algorithm (GA) is known as a potent multiobjective optimization method, and the effectiveness of hybridizing it with local search (LS) has recently been reported in the literature. However, there is a relatively small number of studies on LS methods for multiobjective function optimization. Although each of the existing LS methods has some strong(More)
We propose a protocol for a local search and a genetic algorithm for the distributed traveling salesman problem (TSP). In the distributed TSP, information regarding the cost function such as traveling costs between cities and cities to be visited are separately possessed by distributed parties and both are kept private each other. We propose a protocol that(More)
This investigation determined whether existing muscle damage markers and organ damage markers respond to an acute eccentric exercise protocol and are associated with affected muscle symptoms. Nine healthy-young men completed one-leg calf-raise exercise with their right leg on a force plate. They performed 10 sets of 40 repetitions of exercise at 0.5 Hz with(More)
With recent developments in machine learning technology, the predictions by systems incorporating machine learning can now have a significant impact on the lives and activities of individuals. In some cases, predictions made by machine learning can result unexpectedly in unfair treatments to individuals. For example, if the results are highly dependent on(More)
