During the last ten years the approach to business management has deeply changed, and companies have understood the importance of enforcing achievement of the goals defined by their strategy through metrics-driven management. The DW process, though supporting bottom-up extraction of information from data, fails in top-down enforcing the company strategy. A(More)
In this work, we address the problem of performance evaluation in biometric verification systems. By formulating the optimum Bayesian decision criterion for a verification system and by assuming the data distributions to be multinormals, we derive two statistical expressions for calculating theoretically the false acceptance and false rejection rates.(More)
In this paper we propose a market-like negotiation protocol which extends the wellknown Contract Net Protocol to cope with domains where task swap is the only possible type of contract. The agents we consider are heterogeneous and self-interested. The absence of an explicit support for utility transfer determines interesting implications on efficiency and(More)
A major problem in map building is due to the imprecision of sensor measures. In this paper we propose a technique, called elastic correction, for correcting the dead-reckoning errors made during the exploration of an unknown environment by a robot capable of identifying landmarks. Knowledge of the environment being acquired is modelled by a relational(More)
Multidimensional databases play a relevant role in statistical and scientific applications, as well as in business intelligence systems. Their users express complex OLAP queries, often returning huge volumes of facts, sometimes providing little or no information. Thus, expressing preferences could be highly valuable in this domain. The OLAP domain is(More)
