Tokyo University of Information Sciences (TUIS) receives moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, and provides the processed data to universities and research institutes as part of the academic frontier project. One of the major fields of research using MODIS data is the analysis of changes in the environment. We are currently developing(More)
In this paper, a new puzzle based e-learning system for programming training is introduced, which provides a simple game-like user interface, and features management of learning history for each user. The proposed system applies genetic algorithm to the programming problem generation algorithm, so that the system can automatically generate many different(More)
ABSTRACT Army ants perform the altruism behavior that an ant sacrifices its own well-being for the benefit of another ants. They build bridges using their own bodies along the path from a food to the nest. We developed the army ant inspired social evolutionary system by using Swarm library. The system has 2 kinds of ant agents, 'Major ant' and 'Minor ant'.(More)
Terra and Aqua, 2 satellites launched by the NASA-centered international Earth Observing System project, house MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) sensors. Moderate resolution remote sensing allows the quantifying of land surface type and extent, which can be used to monitor changes in land cover and land use for extended periods of time.(More)
