Agent Based Simulations (ABS) is a relatively recent computer paradigm. As opposed to "top down" conventional computer simulations, the ABS approach is a "bottom-up" modelling technique where a medium to high number of independent agents is modelled. These agents' interactions sometimes cause unexpected "emergent" system behaviour. ABS is particularly(More)
Recently, numerous systems for geo-tracking Alzheimer's patients with dementia are developed and reported to be functional for the purposes of security and data collection. However, it was also reported that use of such systems had generated ethical issues. Studies stated possible loss of freedom and autonomy for patients, along with violations of their(More)
Fluxgate magnetometer data recorded at the with higher accuracy of timing (0.1 s) and amplitude resolution (0.01 nT) were utilized to survey an onset of Pi 2 pulsations in the midnight sector (2100±0100 LT) during PROMIS (Polar Region and Outer Magnetosphere International Study) periods (1 March±20 June, 1986). It is found that changing ®eld line magnitude(More)
In this study we apply Social Network Analysis and Agent Based Simulation techniques to visualize and explore informal social networks amongst staff at the Akdeniz University Hospital to assess and evaluate properties of the organization in terms of its ability to share knowledge and innovate, which is crucial for healthcare organizations delivering a(More)
Medline articles are rich resources for discovering hidden knowledge for the treatments of liver specific parasites. Knowledge acquisition from these articles requires complex processes depending on biomedical text mining techniques. In this study, name entity recognition and hierarchical clustering techniques were used for advanced drug analyses. Drugs(More)
Longitudinal data with binary repeated responses are now widespread among clinical studies and standard statistical analysis methods have become inadequate in the answering of clinical hypotheses. Instead of such conventional approaches, statisticians have started proposing better techniques, such as the Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) approach and(More)
An intensi®cation of auroral luminosity referred to as an auroral break-up often accompanies the onset of geomagnetic pulsation (Pi 2) at the dip-equator. One such auroral break-up occurred at 2239 UT on 16 June, 1986, being accompanied by weak substorm activity (AE$50 nT) which was recorded in all-sky image of Syowa Station, Antarctica (66.2°S, 71.8°E in(More)
