This paper describes Monitorix, a video-based traffic surveillance multi-agent system. Monitorix agents are grouped in four tiers, according to the kind of information processing they perform: the sensors and effectors tier, the objective description tier, the application assistant tier, and the user assistant tier. The video analysis algorithms use an(More)
This paper focuses on the identification of disfluent sequences and their distinct structural regions, based on acoustic and prosodic features. Reported experiments are based on a corpus of university lectures in European Portuguese, with roughly 32h, and a relatively high percentage of disfluencies (7.6%). The set of features automatically extracted from(More)
The preserved Cerrado from Northeastern Brazil presents different physicochemical properties and plant diversity, which can influence the fungal communities. Therefore, we evaluated the fungal diversity in preserved sites, at Sete Cidades National Park, across a gradient of vegetation that included Campo graminoide, Cerrado stricto sensu, Cerradao, and(More)
This chapter details how Big Data can be used and implemented in networking and computing infrastructures. Specifically, it addresses three main aspects: the timely extraction of relevant knowledge from heterogeneous, and very often unstructured large data sources; the enhancement on the performance of processing and networking (cloud) infrastructures that(More)
funds through Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) with references Abstract We claim that it is possible to have artificial software agents for which their actions and the world they inhabit have first-person or intrinsic meanings. The first-person or intrinsic meaning of an entity to a system is defined as its relation with the system's goals and(More)
This paper presents a number of experiments focusing on assessing the performance of different machine learning methods on the identification of disfluencies and their distinct structural regions over speech data. Several machine learning methods have been applied, namely Naive Bayes, Logistic Regression, Classification and Regression Trees (CARTs), J48 and(More)
