This study presents the applicability of an ensemble of artificial neural networks (ANNs) and learning paradigms for weather forecasting in southern Saskatchewan, Canada. The proposed ensemble method for weather forecasting has advantages over other techniques like linear combination. Generally, the output of an ensemble is a weighted sum, which are(More)
This paper presents a comparative study of different neural network models for forecasting the weather of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. For developing the models, we used one year's data comprising of daily maximum and minimum temperature, and wind-speed. We used Multi-Layered Perceptron (MLP) and an Elman Recurrent Neural Network (ERNN), which were(More)
This paper presents a comparative study of six soft computing models namely multilayer perceptron networks, Elman recurrent neural network, radial basis function network, Hopfield model, fuzzy inference system and hybrid fuzzy neural network for the hourly electricity demand forecast of Czech Republic. The soft computing models were trained and tested using(More)
Electronic business (EB) on the Internet has been promoted as a revolutionary technology that will transform " the way we do business. " This paper presents the results of an exploratory study, which compares the financial performance (FP) of 73 publicly held U.S. corporations from the retail industry over a ten-year period. The study analyzes the financial(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are critical in the regulation of various biological processes. In recent years, plethora of lncRNAs have been identified in mammalian genomes through different approaches, and the researchers are constantly reporting the regulatory roles of these lncRNAs, which leads to complexity of literature about particular lncRNAs.(More)
Mutations in SLC26A4 cause either syndromic or nonsyndromic hearing loss. We identified a link between hearing loss and DFNB4 in 3 of the 50 families participating in this study. Sequencing analysis revealed two SLC26A4 mutations, p.V239D and p.S57X, in affected members of the 3 families. These mutations have been previously reported in deaf individuals(More)
Pea (Pisum sativum L.) has increasing nutritional, commercial, and economical value, and initial low supply of N and Co is needed to increase nodulation, yield, and profit. A field experiment in 2010 was conducted at the University of Poonch Rawalakot located in the hilly region of the state of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. The aim of the study was to(More)
In the title compound, C(9)H(11)NOS, the phenyl ring and formamide unit make a dihedral angle of 23.93 (14)°, whereas the (methyl-sulfan-yl)methyl group is oriented at a dihedral angle of 61.31 (8)° with respect to the phenyl ring. There are inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming C(4) chains along the [010] direction. These polymeric chains are(More)
