Many prediction problems can be phrased as inferences over local neighborhoods of graphs. The graph represents the interaction between entities, and the neighborhood of each entity contains information that allows the inferences or predictions. We present an approach for applying machine learning directly to such graph neighborhoods, yielding predicitons(More)
In this paper, the authors design a sensor network architecture for soil and weather data collection and database generation. A multi-sensor device containing sensors for extracting soil characteristics operates as the first component of this architecture. It connects to a mobile phone which further connects to a base server system. An XML file containing(More)
