In the popular computer game of Tetris, the player is given a sequence of tetromino pieces and must pack them into a rectangular gameboard initially occupied by a given configuration of filled squares; any completely filled row of the gameboard is cleared and all pieces above it drop by one row. We prove that in the offline version of Tetris, it is(More)
When Genetic Programming is used to evolve decision trees for data classification, search spaces tend to become extremely large. We present several methods using techniques from the field of machine learning to refine and thereby reduce the search space sizes for decision tree evolvers. We will show that these refinement methods improve the classification(More)
MOTIVATION Pattern discovery in protein sequences is often based on multiple sequence alignments (MSA). The procedure can be computationally intensive and often requires manual adjustment, which may be particularly difficult for a set of deviating sequences. In contrast, two algorithms, PRATT2 (http//www.ebi.ac.uk/pratt/) and TEIRESIAS(More)
— Narrative reports and criminal records are stored digitally across individual police departments, enabling the collection of this data to compile a nationwide database of criminals and the crimes they committed. The compilation of this data through the last years presents new possibilities of analyzing criminal activity through time. Augmenting the(More)
