Description: 

Over the last decade, there has been increasingly interest in applying bacterial evolutionary algorithms for solving optimization problems. The bacterial evolutionary algorithm incorporates two operators based on microbial evolution phenomenon. The bacterial mutation optimizes the bacteria individually, whilst the gene transfer allows the bacteria to directly transfer information to other bacteria in the population.

Memetic algorithms combine an evolutionary algorithm with a local search procedure in order to speed up the evolutionary process making it more efficient and find a better, more accurate solution. In this presentation these ideas are combined and the bacterial memetic algorithm is introduced. This technique applies the bacterial approach incorporating a local search procedure, which is also applied for the optimization of fuzzy rule bases.

LINZ 2010 - 31st Linz Seminar on Fuzzy Set Theory

Description: 

Visit the LINZ2010 main page for information on paper submission, program, location, travel, etc.

Since their inception in 1979, the Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Set Theory have emphasized the development of mathematical aspects of fuzzy sets by bringing together researchers in fuzzy sets and established mathematicians whose work outside the fuzzy setting can provide directions for further research. The philosophy of the seminar has always been to keep it deliberately small and intimate so that informal critical discussions remain central.

LINZ 2010 will be the 31st seminar carrying on this tradition and is devoted to the theme “Lattice-Valued Logic and its Applications”. The goal of the seminar is present and discuss recent advances of mathematical fuzzy logic (understood in broader framework of lattice-valued logics) and concentrate on its applications in various areas of computer science, linguistics, and philosophy.

Accordingly, the topics of the Seminar will include but not be limited to Lattice-based logic:

  • Predicate, higher order, and modal fuzzy logics
  • Sematic, Proof theoretical, and Model theoretical approaches
  • Complexity considerations

and applications of that logic to

  • Knowledge representation
  • Reasoning with imperfect information
  • Hedges and intensifiers
  • Theories of vagueness
  • Artificial intelligence

The "Linz" tradition has these key features: the number of participants of the Linz Seminars is usually bounded above by 40 with broad international representation and a mix of pure and applied interests; there are no parallel sessions so that all participants focus on each presentation and fully engage each topic; and there is ample time for discussion of each presentation, with followup round tables for discussion of open problems and issues raised in the talks.

Description: 

Image Similarity based on the Discrepancy Norm

Short-Text: 

Image Similarity based on the Discrepancy Norm

In computer vision, or image processing, among the most common tasks are image registration and tracking.
The discrepancy norm is a novel similarity measure. It provides some significantly better properties than the state-of-the-art measures – such as proven monotonicity for shifted signals, or robustness in the face of noise.
In this project we will investigate its properties further and try to adapt it to industrial applications.

SynTex

Short-Text: 

Measuring Feelings and Expectations Associated with Textures

The main goal of EU-Project SynTex is the association of human perceptions and expectations with visual and tactile textures. Therefore, hierarchical machine-learning based models with a touch of psychological plausibility were investigated and developed. Another central issue was the automatic synthesis of visual textures based on given human perceptions.
This problem could be solved by an inversion process using genetic algorithms (GAs) coupled with a texture mixing

Short-Text: 

Dynamically Reconfigurable Quality Control for Manufacturing and Production Processes Using Learning Machine Vision

The main goal of DynaVis was the development of machine learning methods for  machine vision systems in production and manufacturing to achieve dynamically reconfigurable systems. The project involved seven academic, industrial, and SME partners in the field of machine learning with a particular focus on machine vision.

This project was funded by the EC as a FP6/STREP project, lasting from October 2005 to September 2008.
