In the setting of outcome oriented decision taking (OODT), decisions are scarce events occurring in between of
many other events which are not decisions. Activities of and agency by an agent may occur without any decisions being taken by that agent, with choice and action determination
as the only mechanisms for actively resolving uncertainty about future behavior. Such behaviour will be referred to as decision taking avoiding agency.
A model, or rather a preliminary qualitative description,
of decision taking avoiding agency is provided for systems consisting of or controlled by a solitary natural or artificial agent, as well as for a group of agents.

Taking abstraction as the starting point, we build a complex, self-organizing fuzzy logic system. Such a system, being built on top of abstraction as the base, turns out to be just a special outcome of the laws of abstraction. As the system is self-organizing, it runs automatically towards optimization. Using such a system in neural networks, we may come as close as possible to the workings of the human brain. The abstract fuzzy optimization is seen to follow a Gaussian distribution.

The paramount importance of decision making problem in an imprecise environment is becoming very much significant in recent years. In this paper we have studied weighted neutrosophic soft sets which is a hybridization of neutrosophic sets with soft sets corresponding to weighted parameters. We have considered here a multicriteria decision making problem as an application of weighted neutrosophic soft sets.

Harmful contents are rising in internet day by day and this motivates the essence of more research in fast and reliable obscene and immoral material filtering. Pornographic image recognition is an important component in each filtering system. In this paper, a new approach for detecting pornographic images is introduced. In this approach, two new features are suggested. These two features in combination with other simple traditional features provide decent difference between porn and non-porn images. In addition, we applied fuzzy integral based information fusion to combine MLP (Multi-Layer Perceptron) and NF (Neuro-Fuzzy) outputs. To test the proposed method, performance of system was evaluated over 18354 download images from internet. The attained precision was 93% in TP and 8% in FP on training dataset, and 87% and 5.5% on test dataset. Achieved results verify the performance of proposed system versus other related works.

Noise-based logic is a practically deterministic logic scheme inspired by the randomness of neural spikes and uses a system of uncorrelated stochastic processes and their superposition to represent the logic state. We briefly discuss various questions such as (i) What does practical determinism mean? (ii) Is noise-based logic a Turing machine? (iii) Is there hope to beat (the dreams of) quantum computation by a classical physical noise-based processor, and what are the minimum hardware requirements for that? Finally, (iv) we address the problem of random number generators and show that the common belief that quantum number generators are superior to classical (thermal) noise-based generators is nothing but a myth.

Neural spikes in the brain form stochastic sequences, i.e., belong to the class of pulse noises. This stochasticity is a counterintuitive feature because extracting information - such as the commonly supposed neural information of mean spike frequency - requires long times for reasonably low error probability. The mystery could be solved by noise-based logic, wherein randomness has an important function and allows large speed enhancements for special-purpose tasks, and the same mechanism is at work for the brain logic version of this concept.

In this paper, we describe the extraction of source code metrics from the Jazz repository and the application of data mining techniques to identify the most useful of those metrics for predicting the success or failure of an attempt to construct a working instance of the software product. We present results from a systematic study using the J48 classification method. The results indicate that only a relatively small number of the available software metrics that we considered have any significance for predicting the outcome of a build. These significant metrics are discussed and implication of the results discussed, particularly the relative difficulty of being able to predict failed build attempts.

In this research we use a data stream approach to mining data and construct Decision Tree models that predict software build outcomes in terms of software metrics that are derived from source code used in the software construction process. The rationale for using the data stream approach was to track the evolution of the prediction model over time as builds are incrementally constructed from previous versions either to remedy errors or to enhance functionality. As the volume of data available for mining from the software repository that we used was limited, we synthesized new data instances through the application of the SMOTE oversampling algorithm. The results indicate that a small number of the available metrics have significance for prediction software build outcomes. It is observed that classification accuracy steadily improves after approximately 900 instances of builds have been fed to the classifier. At the end of the data streaming process classification accuracies of 80% were achieved, though some bias arises due to the distribution of data across the two classes over time.

Markov networks are models for compactly representing complex probability distributions. They are composed by a structure and a set of numerical weights. The structure qualitatively describes independences in the distribution, which can be exploited to factorize the distribution into a set of compact functions. A key application for learning structures from data is to automatically discover knowledge. In practice, structure learning algorithms focused on "knowledge discovery" present a limitation: they use a coarse-grained representation of the structure. As a result, this representation cannot describe context-specific independences. Very recently, an algorithm called CSPC was designed to overcome this limitation, but it has a high computational complexity. This work tries to mitigate this downside presenting CSGS, an algorithm that uses the Grow-Shrink strategy for reducing unnecessary computations. On an empirical evaluation, the structures learned by CSGS achieve competitive accuracies and lower computational complexity with respect to those obtained by CSPC.

Quantum computing by simulations is based upon similarity between mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics and phenomena to be computed. It exploits a dynamical convergence of several competing phenomena to an attractor which can represent an extrenum of a function, an image, a solution to a system of ODE, or a stochastic process. In this chapter, a quantum version of recurrent nets (QRN) as an analog computing device is discussed. This concept is introduced by incorporating classical feedback loops into conventional quantum networks. It is shown that the dynamical evolution of such networks, which interleave quantum evolution with measurement and reset operations, exhibit novel dynamical properties. Moreover, decoherence in quantum recurrent networks is less problematic than in conventional quantum network architectures due to the modest phase coherence times needed for network operation. It is proven that a hypothetical quantum computer can implement an exponentially larger number of the degrees of freedom within the same

Abstract.
The mathematical formalism of quantum resonance combined with tensor product decomposability of unitary evolutions is mapped onto a class of NP-complete combinatorial problems. It has been demonstrated that nature has polynomial resources for solving NP-complete problems and that may help to develop a new strategy for artificial intelligence, as well as to re-evaluate the role of natural selection in biological evolution.

This work focuses on learning the structure of Markov networks. Markov networks are parametric models for compactly representing complex probability distributions. These models are composed by: a structure and a set of numerical weights. The structure describes independences that hold in the distribution. Depending on the goal of learning intended by the user, structure learning algorithms can be divided into: density estimation algorithms, focusing on learning structures for answering inference queries; and knowledge discovery algorithms, focusing on learning structures for describing independences qualitatively. The latter algorithms present an important limitation for describing independences as they use a single graph, a coarse grain representation of the structure. However, many practical distributions present a flexible type of independences called context-specific independences, which cannot be described by a single graph. This work presents an approach for overcoming this limitation by proposing an alternative representation of the structure that named canonical model; and a novel knowledge discovery algorithm called CSPC for learning canonical models by using as constraints context-specific independences present in data. On an extensive empirical evaluation, CSPC learns more accurate structures than state-of-the-art density estimation and knowledge discovery algorithms. Moreover, for answering inference queries, our approach obtains competitive results against density estimation algorithms, significantly outperforming knowledge discovery algorithms.

The life of human beings is a place of communication. Consequently, any cognitive and cogitative manifestation presents a route of communication.
People consume their lives relating by communicational.
Some communicational relationships are contradictory, others are neutral, since within the manifestations of life there are found conflicts meanings and/or neutral meanings.
Communicational relations always comprise a set of neutral, neutrosophic meanings. Particularly, we talk about scientific sculptural communication, esthetic communication and so on, as specific manifestations of life.
It can be asserted that in any communication there are routes of access and neutrosophic routes.
Any communication is traversed by neutrosophic routes of communication.

Medical Informatics and the application of modern signal processing in the assistance of the diagnostic process in medical imaging is one of the more recent and active research areas today. This thesis addresses a variety of issues related to the general problem of medical image analysis, specifically in mammography, and presents a series of algorithms and design approaches for all the intermediate levels of a modern system for computer-aided diagnosis (CAD). The diagnostic problem is analyzed with a systematic approach, first defining the imaging characteristics and features that are relevant to probable pathology in mammo-grams. Next, these features are quantified and fused into new, integrated radio-logical systems that exhibit embedded digital signal processing, in order to improve the final result and minimize the radiological dose for the patient. In a higher level, special algorithms are designed for detecting and encoding these clinically interest-ing imaging features, in order to be used as input to advanced pattern classifiers and machine learning models. Finally, these approaches are extended in multi-classifier models under the scope of Game Theory and optimum collective deci-sion, in order to produce efficient solutions for combining classifiers with minimum computational costs for advanced diagnostic systems. The material covered in this thesis is related to a total of 18 published papers, 6 in scientific journals and 12 in international conferences.

The hardest part of writing this was selecting a category. It involves physics, maths, biology, philosophy. But it speaks of computer science and the AI of bits being responsible for all creation. So maybe this is the right category?
This article is another version of my entry in FQXi’s 2014 contest – http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/1977. I was inspired to write this new version after reading "The Missing Universe" by Bob Berman (Astronomy magazine - April 2014) which says, "... MOND (MOdified Newtonian Dynamics) works well in predicting how galaxies rotate, but it doesn't work as well in predicting motions at much larger scales, such as those between galaxy groups (clusters and superclusters - DM, dark matter, seems compelling at the largest scales)."
This sounds like a message from the universe that we don't have to choose between dark matter and modified gravity. The following article shows that they can be integrated. And if a Theory of Everything really does describe the universe, the strong force and electromagnetic force (p.28 of Bob Berman's article) must also be capable of integration with DM/MOND.
To do this, I'll "Einsteinize" my article by reminding readers of a 1919 paper he wrote. Further Einsteinization will return us to the Theory of Everything by speaking of his Unified Field Theory. Then I’ll finish with “What is Gravity?” (thanks to Einstein’s General Relativity explaining that gravity is the warping of space-time, this could also be called “What is Space-time?”) and a new interpretation of infinity.

In today's world, almost any armed conflict involving national military forces or non-state actors,results in allegations of war crimes and calls for investigations and prosecutions. As continuedpenetration of the Internet in the society leads to ever more thorough scrutiny of military operations,the world's military forces are in a continuous struggle for situational awareness via their own networkcentric Battlefield Management Systems(BMS). But in many publications on the subject matter, little attention is paid as pertains to improving the humanitarian conditions in the Battle-space. The focus for the moment seems to be geared towards the attainment of tactical military objectives, by conducting
military operations against, seemingly virtual adversaries. Pragmatically speaking 'claiming that a war can be conducted without atrocities, is akin to claiming that a market can be free from fraud'.

It is possible to define the neutrosophic measure and consequently the neutrosophic integral and neutrosophic probability in many ways, because there are various types of indeterminacies, depending on the problem we need to solve. Neutrosophics study the indeterminacy. Indeterminacy is different from randomness. It can be caused by physical space materials and type of construction, by items involved in the space, etc.

We summarize the Storkey Learning Rules for the Hopfield Model, and evaluate performance relative to other learning rules. Hopfield Models are normally used for auto-association, and Storkey Learning Rules have been found to have good balance between local learning and capacity. In this paper we outline different learning rules and summarise capacity results. Hopfield networks are related to Boltzmann Machines: they are the same as fully visible Boltzmann Machines in the zero temperature limit. Perhaps renewed interest in Boltzmann machines will produce renewed interest in Hopfield learning rules?

In this paper, we study the linear distributed asymptotic consensus problem for a network of dynamic agents whose communication network is modeled by a randomly switching graph. A finite state Markov process dominates each topology corresponding to a state of the process. We address both the cases where the dynamics of the agents is expressed in continuous and discrete time. As long as the consensus matrices are doubly stochastic, convergence to average consensus can be shown to be achieved in the mean square and almost sure sense. A necessary and sufficient condition is the graph resulted from the union of graphs corresponding to the states of the Markov process contains a spanning tree.

Neutrosophic logic is a relatively new logic that is a generalization of fuzzy logic. In this paper, for the first time, neutrosophic logic is applied to the field of classifiers where a support vector machine (SVM) is adopted as the example to validate its feasibility and effectiveness. The proposed neutrosophic set is integrated into a reformulated SVM, and the performance of the obtained classifier N-SVM is evaluated under a region-based image categorization system. Images are first segmented by a hierarchical two-stage self-organizing map (HSOM), using color and texture features. A novel approach is proposed to select the training samples of HSOM based on homogeneity properties. A diverse density support vector machine (DD-SVM) framework is then applied to viewing an image as a bag of instances corresponding to the regions obtained from image segmentation. Each bag is mapped to a point in the new bag space, and the categorization is transformed to a classification problem. Then, the proposed N-SVM is used as the classifier in the new bag space. N-SVM treats samples differently according to the weighting function, and it helps to reduce the effects of outliers. Experimental results have demonstrated the validity and effectiveness of the proposed method which may find wide applications in the related areas.

The paper presents the correlation and correlation coefficient of single-valued
neutrosophic sets (SVNSs) based on the extension of the correlation of intuitionistic
fuzzy sets and demonstrates that the cosine similarity measure is a special case of the
correlation coefficient in SVNS. Then a decision-making method is proposed by the use
of the weighted correlation coefficient or the weighted cosine similarity measure of
SVNSs, in which the evaluation information for alternatives with respect to criteria is
carried out by truth-membership degree, indeterminacy-membership degree, and
falsity-membership degree under single-valued neutrosophic environment. We utilize
the weighted correlation coefficient or the weighted cosine similarity measure between
each alternative and the ideal alternative to rank the alternatives and to determine the
best one(s). Finally, an illustrative example demonstrates the application of the
proposed decision-making method.

An information is a message which is received and understood. Information can be sent one person to another over a long range but the process of sending information must be done in a secure way especially in case of a private message. Mathematicians and Engineers have
historically relied on different algorithmic techniques to secure messages and signals. Cryptography, to most people, is concerned with keeping communications private. Indeed, the protection of sensitive communications has been the emphasis of cryptography throughout much of its history. Sometimes it is safer to send a message using an image and thus cryptography can also be done using images during an emergency. The need to extract information from images and interpret their contents has been one of the driving factors in the development of image processing and cryptography during the past decades. In this paper, a simple cryptographic method was used to decode a message which was in an image and it was done using a popular computational software.

Load forecasting is the prediction of future loads of a power system. It is an important component for power system energy management. Precise load forecasting helps to make unit
commitment decisions, reduce spinning reserve capacity and schedule device maintenance plan properly. Besides playing a key role in reducing the generation cost, it is also essential to the
reliability of power systems. By forecasting, experts can have an idea of the loads in the future and accordingly can make vital decisions for the system. This work presents a study of short-term hourly load forecasting using different types of Artificial Neural Networks.

Modeling is very important in the field of science and engineering. Modeling gives us an abstract and mathematical description of a particular system and describes its behavior.
Once we get the model of a system then we can work with that in various applications without using the original system repeatedly. Computational Intelligence method like Artificial
Neural Network is very sophisticated tool for modeling and data fitting problems. Modeling of Electrical motors can also be done using ANN. The Neural network that will represent the model of the motor will be a useful tool for future use
especially in digital control systems. The parallel structure of a neural network makes it potentially fast for the computation of certain tasks. The same feature makes a neural network
well suited for implementation in VLSI technology. Hardware realization of a Neural Network (NN), to a large extent depends on the efficient implementation of a single neuron. In
this paper only a motor model is presented along with some neural networks those will mimic the motor behavior acquiring data from the original motor output.

We present an image representation method which is derived from analyzing Gaussian probability density function (\emph{pdf}) space using Lie group theory. In our proposed method, images are modeled by Gaussian mixture models (GMMs) which are adapted from a globally trained GMM called universal background model (UBM). Then we vectorize the GMMs based on two facts: (1) components of image-specific GMMs are closely grouped together around their corresponding component of the UBM due to the characteristic of the UBM adaption procedure; (2) Gaussian \emph{pdf}s form a Lie group, which is a differentiable manifold rather than a vector space. We map each Gaussian component to the tangent vector space (named Lie algebra) of Lie group at the manifold position of UBM. The final feature vector, named Lie algebrized Gaussians (LAG) is then constructed by combining the Lie algebrized Gaussian components with mixture weights. We apply LAG features to scene category recognition problem and observe state-of-the-art performance on 15Scenes benchmark.

In the present paper we discussed Godel’s incompleteness theorem(s) and plausible implications to artificial intelligence/life and human mind. Perhaps we should agree with Sullins III, that the value of this finding is not to discourage certain types of research in AL, but rather to help move us in a direction where we can more clearly define the results of that research. Godel’s incompleteness theorems have their own limitations, but so do Artificial Life (AL)/AI systems. Based on our experiences so far, human mind has incredible abilities to interact with other part of human body including heart, which makes it so difficult to simulate in AI/AL. However, it remains an open question to predict whether the future of AI including robotics science can bring this gap closer or not. In this regard, fuzzy logic and its generalization –neutrosophic logic- offer a way to improve significantly AI/AL research.

This paper is about designing a platform for creating formalized semantic representations to express algorithmic knowledge and their implementations in a high level language program. Representations are mechanisms for expressing any linguistic utterance. Improvements in human understanding of those utterances is achieved when each of those utterances are expressed using representations with the most appropriate semantic properties. This principle is applied for design of this platform. The platform can be used by computer scientists, teachers and engineers who make attempts at conveying their knowledge about a specific algorithm and its corresponding high level language program. The principal objective of the platform is aimed at improving human understanding of representations for algorithmic knowledge.

Cloud computing offers the potential to help scientists to process massive number of computing
resources often required in machine learning application such as computer vision problems. This
proposal would like to show that which benefits can be obtained from cloud in order to help medical
image analysis users (including scientists, clinicians, and research institutes). As security and privacy
of algorithms are important for most of algorithms’ inventors, these algorithms can be hidden in a
cloud to allow the users to use the algorithms as a package without any access to see/change their
inside. In another word, in the user part, users send their images to the cloud and configure the
algorithm via an interface. In the cloud part, the algorithms are applied to this image and the results are
returned back to the user.
My proposal has two parts: (1) investigate the potential of cloud computing for computer vision
problems and (2) study the components of a proposed cloud-based framework for medical image
analysis application and develop them (depending on the length of the internship). The investigation
part will involve a study on several aspects of the problem including security, usability (for medical
end users of the service), appropriate programming abstractions for vision problems, scalability and
resource requirements. In the second part of this proposal I am going to thoroughly study of the
proposed framework components and their relations and develop them. The proposed cloud-based
framework includes an integrated environment to enable scientists and clinicians to access to the
previous and current medical image analysis algorithms using a handful user interface without any access to the algorithm codes and procedures.

In this paper, we study CPU utilization time patterns of several MapReduce applications. After extracting running patterns of several applications, the patterns along with their statistical information are saved in a reference database to be later used to tweak system parameters to efficiently execute future unknown applications. To achieve this goal, CPU utilization patterns of new applications along with its statistical information are compared with the already known ones in the reference database to find/predict their most probable execution patterns. Because of different pattern lengths, the Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) is utilized for such comparison; a statistical analysis is then applied to DTWs’ outcomes to select the most suitable candidates. Furthermore, under a hypothesis, we also proposed another algorithm to classify applications under similar CPU utilization patterns. Finally, dependency between minimum distance/maximum similarity of applications and their scalability (in both input size and number of virtual nodes) are studied. Here, we used widely used applications (WordCount, Distributed Grep, and Terasort) as well as an Exim Mainlog parsing application to evaluate our hypothesis in automatic tweaking MapReduce configuration parameters in executing similar applications scalable on both size of input data and number of virtual nodes. Results are very promising and showed the effectiveness of our approach on a private cloud with up to 25 virtual nodes.

In conventional distributed machine learning methods, distributed support vector machines (SVM) algorithms are trained over pre-configured in-tranet/internet environments to find out an optimal classifier. These methods are very complicated and costly for large datasets. Hence, we propose a method that is referred as the Cloud SVM training mechanism (CloudSVM) in a cloud computing environment with MapReduce technique for distributed machine learning applications. Accordingly, (i) SVM algorithm is trained in distributed cloud storage servers that work concurrently; (ii) merge all support vectors in every trained cloud node; and (iii) iterate these two steps until the SVM con-verges to the optimal classifier function. Single computer is incapable to train SVM algorithm with large scale data sets. The results of this study are im-portant for training of large scale data sets for machine learning applications. We provided that iterative training of splitted data set in cloud computing envi-ronment using SVM will converge to a global optimal classifier in finite iteration size.

Do computers already have human level intelligence? Could they understand and process the semantics of irrational numbers without knowing the exact values ? Human can. How about uncountable sets ? These are necessary to build sciences and real world modeling. Does human intelligence exceed the power of Turing Machine? This paper explains that behavior-based Turing Test cannot measure some intrinsic human intelligence, due to the bottleneck in expression, the bottleneck in capacity, and black box issue, etc. And it does not provide a progressive measurement up to human level intelligence. Similar issues exist in other current testing methods, due to the limitations of behavior-based, knowledge-based or task-based, etc. Measurements based on intrinsic mechanisms could provide better testing. This paper identifies several design goals, to further improve the measurement. Gu Test, a progressive generic intelligence measurement with levels and potential structures, is proposed based on these goals, to measure the intrinsic mechanism for semantics, potential and other intelligence. The semantics of irrational numbers and uncountable sets are identified as two test levels. More work need be done to expand the test feature sets and structures, and provide some suggestions for the direction of future Artificial Intelligence (AI) researches.

A maneuvering control algorithm based on the independent all-wheel driving and steering control has been proposed to improve the maneuverability and survivability for special purpose 6WD/6WS vehicles. The control algorithm to perform maneuvering, high speed stability, and fault tolerant controls effectively are derived based on high dynamic characteristics of in-wheel motor and advantages of independent steer and drive. The maneuvering controller applies sliding and optimal control theories considering optimal torque distribution and friction circle related to the vertical tire force.

We propose in this work a signature verification system based on decision combination of off-line signatures for managing conflict provided by the SVM classifiers. The system is basically divided into three modules: i) Radon Transform-SVM, ii) Ridgelet Transform-SVM and iii) PCR5 combination rule based on the generalized belief functions of Dezert-Smarandache theory. The proposed framework allows combining the normalized SVM outputs and uses an estimation technique based on the dissonant model of Appriou to compute the belief assignments. Decision making is performed through likelihood ratio. Experiments are conducted on the well known CEDAR database using false rejection and false acceptance criteria. The obtained results show that the proposed combination framework improves the verification accuracy compared to individual SVM classifiers.

The paper presents the navigation mobile walking robot systems for movement in non-stationary and non-structured environments, using a Bayesian approach of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) for avoiding obstacles and dynamical stability control for motion on rough terrain. By processing inertial information of force, torque, tilting and wireless sensor networks (WSN) an intelligent high level algorithm is implementing using the virtual projection method. The control system architecture for the dynamic robot walking is presented in correlation with a stochastic model of assessing system probability of unidirectional or bidirectional transition states, applying the non-homogeneous/non-stationary Markov chains. The rationality and validity of the proposed model are demonstrated via an example of quantitative assessment of states probabilities of an autonomous robot. The results show that the proposed new navigation strategy of the mobile robot using Bayesian approach walking robot control systems for going around obstacles has increased the robot’s mobility and stability in workspace.

Fabric inspection system is important to maintain the quality of fabric. Fabric
inspection is carried out manually with human visual inspection for a long time. The work of
inspectors is very tedious and consumes time and cost.To reduce the wastage of cost and time,
automatic fabric inspection is required. This paper proposes an approach to recognize fabric
defects in textile industry for minimizing production cost and time. The Fabric inspection
system first acquires high quality vibration free images of the fabric. Then the acquired
images are subjected to defect segmentation algorithm. The output of the processed image is
used as an input to the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) which uses back propagation
algorithm to calculate the weighted factors and generates the desired classification of defects
as an output.

In most of classical fusion problems modeled from
belief functions, the frame of discernment is considered as static.
This means that the set of elements in the frame and the
underlying integrity constraints of the frame are fixed forever
and they do not change with time. In some applications, like in
target tracking for example, the use of such invariant frame is
not very appropriate because it can truly change with time. So it
is necessary to adapt the Proportional Conflict Redistribution
fusion rules (PCR5 and PCR6) for working with dynamical
frames. In this paper, we propose an extension of PCR5 and
PCR6 rules for working in a frame having some non-existential
integrity constraints. Such constraints on the frame can arise in
tracking applications by the destruction of targets for example.
We show through very simple examples how these new rules can
be used for the belief revision process.

Uncertainty measures in the theory of belief functions
are important for the uncertainty representation and
reasoning. Many measures of uncertainty in the theory of belief
functions have been introduced. The degree of discord (or
conflict) inside a body of evidence is an important index for
measuring uncertainty degree. Recently, distance of evidence
is used to define a contradiction measure for quantifying the
degree of discord inside a body of evidence. The contradiction
measure is actually the weighted summation of the distance
values between a given basic belief assignment (bba) and the
categorical bba’s defined on each focal element of the given bba
redefined in this paper. It has normalized value and can well
characterize the self-discord incorporated in bodies of evidence.
We propose here, some numerical examples with comparisons
among different uncertainty measures are provided, together
with related analyses, to show the rationality of the proposed
contradiction measure.

In this paper, we address consensus seeking problem of dynamical agents on random sector graphs. Random sector graphs are directed
geometric graphs and have been investigated extensively. Each agent randomly walks on these graphs and communicates with each other if
and only if they coincide on a node at the same time. Extensive simulations are performed to show that global consensus can be reached.

Dr. Cai Wen defined in his 1983 paper:
- the distance formula between a point x0 and a one-dimensional (1D) interval ;
- and the dependence function which gives the degree of dependence of a point with respect to
a pair of included 1D-intervals.
His paper inspired us to generalize the Extension Set to two-dimensions, i.e. in plane of real
numbers R2 where one has a rectangle (instead of a segment of line), determined by two
arbitrary points A(a1, a2) and B(b1, b2). And similarly in R3, where one has a prism determined by
two arbitrary points A(a1, a2, a3) and B(b1, b2, b3). We geometrically define the linear and nonlinear
distance between a point and the 2D- and 3D-extension set and the dependent function
for a nest of two included 2D- and 3D-extension sets. Linearly and non-linearly attraction point
principles towards the optimal point are presented as well.
The same procedure can be then used considering, instead of a rectangle, any bounded 2Dsurface
and similarly any bounded 3D-solid, and any bounded n-D-body in Rn.
These generalizations are very important since the Extension Set is generalized from onedimension
to 2, 3 and even n-dimensions, therefore more classes of applications will result in
consequence.

This paper deals with the error analysis of a novel navigation algorithm that uses as input the sequence of images acquired from a moving camera and a Digital Terrain (or Elevation) Map (DTM/DEM). More specifically, it has been shown that the optical flow derived from two consecutive camera frames can be used in combination with a DTM to estimate the position, orientation and ego-motion parameters of the moving camera. As opposed to previous works, the proposed approach does not require an intermediate explicit reconstruction of the 3D world. In the present work the sensitivity of the algorithm outlined above is studied. The main sources for errors are identified to be the optical-flow evaluation and computation, the quality of the information about the terrain, the structure of the observed terrain and the trajectory of the camera. By assuming appropriate characterization of these error sources, a closed form expression for the uncertainty of the pose and motion of the camera is first developed and then the influence of these factors is confirmed using extensive numerical simulations. The main conclusion of this paper is to establish that the proposed navigation algorithm generates accurate estimates for reasonable scenarios and error sources, and thus can be effectively used as part of a navigation system of autonomous vehicles.

In the theory of belief functions, many measures
of uncertainty have been introduced. However, it is not always
easy to understand what these measures really try to represent.
In this paper, we re-interpret some measures of uncertainty in
the theory of belief functions. We present some interests and
drawbacks of the existing measures. On these observations, we
introduce a measure of contradiction. Therefore, we present some
degrees of non-specificity and Bayesianity of a mass. We propose
a degree of specificity based on the distance between a mass and
its most specific associated mass. We also show how to use the
degree of specificity to measure the specificity of a fusion rule.
Illustrations on simple examples are given.

In this paper, we present a new 2-tuple linguistic
representation model, i.e. Distribution Function Model
(DFM), for combining imprecise qualitative information using
fusion rules drawn from Dezert-Smarandache Theory
(DSmT) framework. Such new approach allows to preserve
the precision and efficiency of the combination of linguistic
information in the case of either equidistant or unbalanced
label model. Some basic operators on imprecise 2-tuple labels
are presented together with their extensions for imprecise
2-tuple labels. We also give simple examples to show
how precise and imprecise qualitative information can be
combined for reasoning under uncertainty. It is concluded
that DSmT can deal efficiently with both precise and imprecise
quantitative and qualitative beliefs, which extends the
scope of this theory.

Abstract-In this paper we analyze the performances of a
new probabilistic belief transformation, denoted DSmP, for the
sequential estimation of target ID from classifier outputs in
the Target Type Tracking problem (TTT). We complicate here
a bit the TTT problem by considering three types of targets
(Interceptor, Fighter and Cargo) and show through Monte-Carlo
simulations the advantages of DSmP over the classical pignistic
transformation which is classically used for decision-making
under uncertainty when dealing with belief assignments. Based
on our previous works for the justification of rules of combination
for TTT problem, only the Proportional Conflict Redistribution
rule and the hybrid fusion rules are considered in this work for
their ability to deal consistently with high conflicting sources of
evidence with three different belief assignment modelings.

In this paper, we present a Non-Bayesian conditioning
rule for belief revision. This rule is truly Non-Bayesian in
the sense that it doesn't satisfy the common adopted principle
that when a prior belief is Bayesian, after conditioning by X,
Bel(X|X) must be equal to one. Our new conditioning rule for
belief revision is based on the proportional conflict redistribution
rule of combination developed in DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache
Theory) which abandons Bayes' conditioning principle. Such
Non-Bayesian conditioning allows to take into account judiciously
the level of conflict between the prior belief available and
the conditional evidence. We also introduce the deconditioning
problem and show that this problem admits a unique solution
in the case of Bayesian prior; a solution which is not possible
to obtain when classical Shafer and Bayes conditioning rules are
used. Several simple examples are also presented to compare
the results between this new Non-Bayesian conditioning and the
classical one.

The new concept of fuzzy interval matrices has been introduced
in this book for the first time. The authors have not only
introduced the notion of fuzzy interval matrices, interval
neutrosophic matrices and fuzzy neutrosophic interval matrices
but have also demonstrated some of its applications when the
data under study is an unsupervised one and when several
experts analyze the problem.
Further, the authors have introduced in this book multiexpert
models using these three new types of interval matrices.
The new multi expert models dealt in this book are FCIMs,
FRIMs, FCInMs, FRInMs, IBAMs, IBBAMs, nIBAMs, FAIMs,
FAnIMS, etc. Illustrative examples are given so that the reader
can follow these concepts easily.
This book has three chapters. The first chapter is
introductory in nature and makes the book a self-contained one.
Chapter two introduces the concept of fuzzy interval matrices.
Also the notion of fuzzy interval matrices, neutrosophic interval
matrices and fuzzy neutrosophic interval matrices, can find
applications to Markov chains and Leontief economic models.
Chapter three gives the application of fuzzy interval matrices
and neutrosophic interval matrices to real-world problems by
constructing the models already mentioned. Further these
models are mainly useful when the data is an unsupervised one
and when one needs a multi-expert model. The new concept of
fuzzy interval matrices and neutrosophic interval matrices will
find their applications in engineering, medical, industrial, social
and psychological problems. We have given a long list of
references to help the interested reader.

In situation analysis (SA), an agent observing a
scene receives information from heterogeneous sources of information
including for example remote sensing devices, human reports
and databases. The aim of this agent is to reach a certain
level of awareness of the situation in order to make decisions. For
the purpose of applications, this state of awareness can be conceived
as a state of knowledge in the classical epistemic logic
sense. Considering the logical connection between belief and
knowledge, the challenge for the designer is to transform the raw,
imprecise, conflictual and often paradoxical information received
from the different sources into statements understandable by both
man and machines. Hence, quantitative (i.e. measuring the world)
and qualitative (i.e. reasoning about the structure of the world)
information processing coexist in SA. A great challenge in SA
is the conciliation of both aspects in mathematical and logical
frameworks. As a consequence, SA applications need frameworks
general enough to take into account the different types of uncertainty
and information present in the SA context, doubled with a
semantics allowing meaningful reasoning on situations. The aim
of this paper is to evaluate the capacity of neutrosophic logic and
Dezert- Smarandache theory (DSmT) to cope with the ontological
and epistemological problems of SA.

One proposes a first alternative rule of combination to WAO (Weighted Average Operator) proposed recently by Josang,
Daniel and Vannoorenberghe, called Proportional Conflict Redistribution rule (denoted PCR1). PCR1 and WAO are particular cases of
WO (the Weighted Operator) because the conflicting mass is redistributed with respect to some weighting factors. In this first PCR rule,
the proportionalization is done for each non-empty set with respect to the non-zero sum of its corresponding mass matrix - instead of its
mass column average as in WAO, but the results are the same as Ph. Smets has pointed out. Also, we extend WAO (which herein gives
no solution) for the degenerate case when all column sums of all non-empty sets are zero, and then the conflicting mass is transferred
to the non-empty disjunctive form of all non-empty sets together; but if this disjunctive form happens to be empty, then one considers
an open world (i.e. the frame of discernment might contain new hypotheses) and thus all conflicting mass is transferred to the empty
set. In addition to WAO, we propose a general formula for PCR1 (WAO for non-degenerate cases). Several numerical examples and
comparisons with other rules for combination of evidence published in literature are presented too. Another distinction between these
alternative rules is that WAO is defined on the power set, while PCR1 is on the hyper-power set (Dedekind's lattice). A nice feature of
PCR1, is that it works not only on non-degenerate cases but also on degenerate cases as well appearing in dynamic fusion, while WAO
gives the sum of masses in this cases less than 1 (WAO does not work in these cases). Meanwhile we show that PCR1 and WAO do not
preserve unfortunately the neutrality property of the vacuous belief assignment though the fusion process. This severe drawback can
however be easily circumvented by new PCR rules presented in a companion paper.

In a world of chaotic alignments, traditional logic with its strict boundaries of truth
and falsity has not imbued itself with the capability of reflecting the reality. Despite
various attempts to reorient logic, there has remained an essential need for an
alternative system that could infuse into itself a representation of the real world. Out
of this need arose the system of Neutrosophy, and its connected logic, Neutrosophic
Logic. Neutrosophy is a new branch of philosophy that studies the origin, nature and
scope of neutralities, as well as their interactions with different ideational spectra.
This was introduced by one of the authors, Florentin Smarandache. A few of the
mentionable characteristics of this mode of thinking are [90-94]: It proposes new
philosophical theses, principles, laws, methods, formulas and movements; it reveals
that the world is full of indeterminacy; it interprets the uninterpretable; regards, from

This second book devoted on advances and applications of Dezert-Smarandache Theory
(DSmT) for information fusion collects recent papers from different researchers working in
engineering and mathematics. Part 1 of this book presents the current state-of-the-art on theoretical
investigations while, Part 2 presents several applications of this new theory. Some ideas
in this book are still under current development or improvements, but we think it is important
to propose them in order to share ideas and motivate new debates with people interested in
new reasoning methods and information fusion. So, we hope that this second volume on DSmT
will continue to stir up some interests to researchers and engineers working in data fusion and
in artificial intelligence.

This book is devoted to an emerging branch of Information Fusion based on new approach for modelling
the fusion problematic when the information provided by the sources is both uncertain and
(highly) conflicting. This approach, known in literature as DSmT (standing for Dezert-Smarandache
Theory), proposes new useful rules of combinations. We gathered in this volume a presentation of DSmT
from the beginning to the latest development. Part 1 of this book presents the current state-of-the-art on
theoretical investigations while Part 2 presents several applications of this new theory. We hope that this
first book on DSmT will stir up some interests to researchers and engineers working in data fusion and in
artificial intelligence. Many simple but didactic examples are proposed throughout the book. As a young
emerging theory, DSmT is probably not exempt from improvements and its development will continue to
evolve over the years. We just want through this book to propose a new look at the Information Fusion
problematic and open a new track to attack the combination of information.

This paper defines and implements a non-Bayesian
fusion rule for combining densities of probabilities estimated
by local (non-linear) filters for tracking a moving target by
passive sensors. This rule is the restriction to a strict probabilistic
paradigm of the recent and efficient Proportional Conflict Redistribution
rule no 5 (PCR5) developed in the DSmT framework
for fusing basic belief assignments. A sampling method for
probabilistic PCR5 (p-PCR5) is defined. It is shown that
p-PCR5 is more robust to an erroneous modeling and allows to
keep the modes of local densities and preserve as much as
possible the whole information inherent to each densities to
combine. In particular, p-PCR5 is able of maintaining multiple
hypotheses/modes after fusion, when the hypotheses are too
distant in regards to their deviations. This new p-PCR5 rule has
been tested on a simple example of distributed non-linear filtering
application to show the interest of such approach for future
developments. The non-linear distributed filter is implemented
through a basic particles filtering technique. The results obtained
in our simulations show the ability of this p-PCR5-based filter
to track the target even when the models are not well consistent
in regards to the initialization and real cinematic.
Keywords: Filtering, Robust estimation, non-Bayesian fusion
rule, PCR5, Particle filtering.

In this paper we extend the new family of (quantitative) Belief Conditioning Rules (BCR) recently
developed in the Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT) to their qualitative counterpart for belief revision. Since
the revision of quantitative as well as qualitative belief assignment given the occurrence of a new event (the
conditioning constraint) can be done in many possible ways, we present here only what we consider as the most
appealing Qualitative Belief Conditioning Rules (QBCR) which allow to revise the belief directly with words and
linguistic labels and thus avoids the introduction of ad-hoc translations of quantitative beliefs into quantitative
ones for solving the problem.

This paper deals with enriched qualitative belief functions for reasoning under uncertainty and for
combining information expressed in natural language through linguistic labels. In this work, two possible enrichments
(quantitative and/or qualitative) of linguistic labels are considered and operators (addition, multiplication,
division, etc) for dealing with them are proposed and explained. We denote them qe-operators, qe standing for
"qualitative-enriched" operators. These operators can be seen as a direct extension of the classical qualitative
operators (q-operators) proposed recently in the Dezert-Smarandache Theory of plausible and paradoxist reasoning
(DSmT). q-operators are also justified in details in this paper. The quantitative enrichment of linguistic label
is a numerical supporting degree in [0,∞), while the qualitative enrichment takes its values in a finite ordered
set of linguistic values. Quantitative enrichment is less precise than qualitative enrichment, but it is expected
more close with what human experts can easily provide when expressing linguistic labels with supporting degrees.
Two simple examples are given to show how the fusion of qualitative-enriched belief assignments can be done.

In this paper we propose five versions of a Proportional Conflict Redistribution rule (PCR) for information fusion together
with several examples. From PCR1 to PCR2, PCR3, PCR4, PCR5 one increases the complexity of the rules and also the exactitude
of the redistribution of conflicting masses. PCR1 restricted from the hyper-power set to the power set and without degenerate cases
gives the same result as the Weighted Average Operator (WAO) proposed recently by Jøsang, Daniel and Vannoorenberghe but does
not satisfy the neutrality property of vacuous belief assignment. That's why improved PCR rules are proposed in this paper. PCR4 is
an improvement of minC and Dempster's rules. The PCR rules redistribute the conflicting mass, after the conjunctive rule has been
applied, proportionally with some functions depending on the masses assigned to their corresponding columns in the mass matrix.
There are infinitely many ways these functions (weighting factors) can be chosen depending on the complexity one wants to deal with
in specific applications and fusion systems. Any fusion combination rule is at some degree ad-hoc.

For academics and practitioners concerned with computers, business and

propose a generalization of Decision Matrix Method (DMM), using Neutrosophic
logic. It emerges as an alternative to the existing logics and it represents a
mathematical model of uncertainty and indeterminacy. This paper proposes the
Neutrosophic Decision Matrix Method as a more realistic tool for decision
making. In addition, a de-neutrosophication process is included.

Description Logics (DLs) are appropriate, widely used, logics for managing structured
knowledge. They allow reasoning about individuals and concepts, i.e. set of individuals
with common properties. Typically, DLs are limited to dealing with crisp, well defined
concepts. That is, concepts for which the problem whether an individual is an instance of
it is a yes/no question. More often than not, the concepts encountered in the real world do
not have a precisely defined criteria of membership: we may say that an individual is an
instance of a concept only to a certain degree, depending on the individual's properties.
The DLs that deal with such fuzzy concepts are called fuzzy DLs. In order to deal
with fuzzy, incomplete, indeterminate and inconsistent concepts, we need to extend the
capabilities of fuzzy DLs further.
In this paper we will present an extension of fuzzy ALC, combining Smarandache's
neutrosophic logic with a classical DL. In particular, concepts become neutrosophic (here
neutrosophic means fuzzy, incomplete, indeterminate and inconsistent), thus, reasoning
about such neutrosophic concepts is supported. We will define its syntax, its semantics,
describe its properties and present a constraint propagation calculus for reasoning in it.

The management and combination of uncertain, imprecise, fuzzy and even paradoxical or high conflicting sources of
information has always been and still remains of primal importance for the development of reliable information fusion systems.
In this short survey paper, we present the theory of plausible and paradoxical reasoning, known as DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache
Theory) in literature, developed for dealing with imprecise, uncertain and potentially highly conflicting sources of information.
DSmT is a new paradigm shift for information fusion and recent publications have shown the interest and the potential ability
of DSmT to solve fusion problems where Dempster's rule used in Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) provides counter-intuitive
results or fails to provide useful result at all. This paper is focused on the foundations of DSmT and on its main rules of combination
(classic, hybrid and Proportional Conflict Redistribution rules). Shafer's model on which is based DST appears as a
particular and specific case of DSm hybrid model which can be easily handled by DSmT as well. Several simple but illustrative
examples are given throughout this paper to show the interest and the generality of this new theory.

This paper introduces the notion of qualitative belief assignment to model beliefs of human experts
expressed in natural language (with linguistic labels). We show how qualitative beliefs can be efficiently combined
using an extension of Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT) of plausible and paradoxical quantitative reasoning
to qualitative reasoning. We propose a new arithmetic on linguistic labels which allows a direct extension of
classical DSm fusion rule or DSm Hybrid rules. An approximate qualitative PCR5 rule is also proposed jointly
with a Qualitative Average Operator. We also show how crisp or interval mappings can be used to deal indirectly
with linguistic labels. A very simple example is provided to illustrate our qualitative fusion rules.

In this paper we consider and analyze the behavior of two combinational rules for temporal (sequential)
attribute data fusion for target type estimation. Our comparative analysis is based on Dempster's
fusion rule proposed in Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) and on the Proportional Conflict Redistribution rule no.
5 (PCR5) recently proposed in Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT). We show through very simple scenario
and Monte-Carlo simulation, how PCR5 allows a very efficient Target Type Tracking and reduces drastically the
latency delay for correct Target Type decision with respect to Demspter's rule. For cases presenting some short
Target Type switches, Demspter's rule is proved to be unable to detect the switches and thus to track correctly
the Target Type changes. The approach proposed here is totally new, efficient and promising to be incorporated
in real-time Generalized Data Association - Multi Target Tracking systems (GDA-MTT) and provides an important
result on the behavior of PCR5 with respect to Dempster's rule. The MatLab source code is provided in

This paper presents several classes of fusion problems which cannot be directly attacked by the classical mathematical
theory of evidence, also known as the Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) either because the Shafer's model for the frame of discernment
is impossible to obtain or just because the Dempster's rule of combination fails to provide coherent results (or no result at all). We

how the DSm rule of combination can be adapted to take into account all possible integrity constraints (if any)
of the problem under consideration due to the true nature of elements/concepts involved into it. We show how
the Shafer's model can be considered as a specific DSm hybrid model and be easily handled by our approach and
a new efficient rule of combination different from the Dempster's rule is obtained. Several simple examples are

The recent theory of plausible and paradoxical reasoning (DSmT) developed by the authors appears
to be a nice promising theoretical tools to solve many information fusion problems where the Shafer's model
cannot be used due to the intrinsic paradoxical nature of the elements of the frame of discernment and where
a strong internal conflict between sources arises. The main idea of DSmT is to work on the hyper-powerset of
the frame of discernment of the problem under consideration. Although the definition of hyper-powerset is well
established, the major difficulty in practice is to generate such hyper-powersets in order to implement DSmT
fusion rule on computers. We present in this paper a simple algorithm for generating hyper-powersets and
discuss the limitations of our actual computers to generate such hyper-powersets when the dimension of the
problem increases.

This paper presents two new promising combination
rules for the fusion of uncertain and potentially highly
conflicting sources of evidences in the theory of belief functions
established first in Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST) and
then recently extended in Dezert-Smarandache Theory
(DSmT). Our work is to provide here new issues to palliate
the well-known limitations of Dempster's rule and to work
beyond its limits of applicability. Since the famous Zadeh's
criticism of Dempster's rule in 1979, many researchers have
proposed new interesting alternative rules of combination to
palliate the weakness of Dempster's rule in order to provide
acceptable results specially in highly conflicting situations.
In this work, we present two new combination rules: the
class of Adaptive Combination Rules (ACR) and a new efficient
Proportional Conflict Redistribution (PCR) rule. Both
rules allow to deal with highly conflicting sources for static
and dynamic fusion applications. We present some interesting
properties for ACR and PCR rules and discuss some
simulation results obtained with both rules for Zadeh's problem
and for a target identification problem.

human reports are better and easier expressed in natural
language than with numbers. In this paper, we propose
to use Herrera-Martínez' 2-Tuple linguistic representation
model (i.e. equidistant linguistic labels with a numeric
value assessment) for reasoning with uncertain and qualitative
information in Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT)
framework to preserve the precision and the efficiency of
the fusion of linguistic information expressing the expert's
qualitative beliefs. We present operators to deal with the
2-Tuples and show from a simple example how qualitative
DSmT-based fusion rules can be used for qualitative reasoning

Modern systems for information retrieval, fusion and management need to deal more and more with information
coming from human experts usually expressed qualitatively in natural language with linguistic labels. In this paper, we
propose and use two new 2-Tuple linguistic representation models (i.e., a distribution function model (DFM) and an improved
Herrera-Martínez's model) jointly with the fusion rules developed in Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT), in order to
combine efficiently qualitative information expressed in term of qualitative belief functions. The two models both preserve
the precision and improve the efficiency of the fusion of linguistic information expressing the global expert's opinion. However,
DFM is more general and efficient than the latter, especially for unbalanced linguistic labels. Some simple examples are also
provided to show how the 2-Tuple qualitative fusion rules are performed and their advantages.

author proposes a Unification of Fusion Theories and a combination of fusion rules in
solving problems/applications. For each particular application, one selects the most
appropriate model, rule(s), and algorithm of implementation.
We are working in the unification of the fusion theories and rules, which looks like a
cooking recipe, better we'd say like a logical chart for a computer programmer, but we
don't see another method to comprise/unify all things.
The unification scenario presented herein, which is now in an incipient form, should

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) represent the expansion in computerized interconnectivity. This phenomenon is also moving towards the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. Searching functionality plays a vital role in this domain. Many different types of search capabilities are required to build a comprehensive CPS architecture. In CPS, users may want to search smart devices and services. In this chapter, we discuss concepts and techniques related to device search and selection. We briefly discuss different types of device searching approaches where each has its own objectives and applications. One such device searching technique is context-aware searching. In this chapter, we present context-aware sensor search, selection and ranking model called CASSARAM in detail. This model addresses the challenge of efficiently selecting a subset of relevant sensors out of a large set of sensors with similar functionality and capabilities. CASSARAM takes into account user preferences and considers a broad range of sensor characteristics, such as reliability, accuracy, location, battery life, and many more. Later in the chapter, we discuss three different techniques that can be used to improve the efficiently of CASSARAM. We implemented the proof of concept software using Java. Testing and performance evaluation results are also discussed. We also highlight open research challenges and opportunities in order to support future research directions.

A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a system of collaborating computational elements con- trolling physical entities. CPS represents the next stage on the road to the creation of smart cities through the creation of an Internet of Things, data and services. Mobility is one of the major characteristic of both CPS and IoT. In this Chapter, we discuss mobile sensing platforms and their applications towards dierent but interrelated paradigms such as IoT, sensing as a service, and smart cities. We highlight and brie y discuss dierent types of mobile sensing platforms and functionalities they oer. Mobile sensing platforms are more oftenly integrated with smart phones and tablet devices. The resource constrained nature of the mobile devices requires dierent types of designs and architectural implementations. We proposed a software-based mobile sensing platform called Mobile Sensor Data Engine (MOSDEN). It is a plug-in-based scalable and extendible IoT middleware for mobile devices that provide an easy way to collect sensor data from both internal and external sensors. MOSDEN act as intermediary device that collects data from external sensors and upload to the cloud in real-time or on demand. We evaluate MOSDEN in both stand-alone and collaborative environments. The proof of concept is developed on Android platform.

In the present paper we discuss Gödel’s incompleteness theorem(s) and plausible implications to artificial intelligence/life and human mind. Perhaps we should agree with Sullins III, that the value of this finding is not to discourage certain types of research in AL, but rather to help move us in a direction where we can more clearly define the results of that research. Gödel’s incompleteness theorems have their own limitations, but so do Artificial Life (AL)/AI systems. Based on our experiences so far, human mind has incredible abilities to interact with other part of human body including heart, which makes it so difficult to simulate in AI/AL. However, it remains an open question to predict whether in the future AI research including robotics science can bring this gap closer or not. In this regard, fuzzy logic and its generalization –neutrosophic logic- offer a way to improve significantly AI/AL research.

In this paper, we study CPU utilization time patterns of several MapReduce applications. After extracting running patterns of several applications, the patterns along with their statistical information are saved in a reference database to be later used to tweak system parameters to efficiently execute future unknown applications. To achieve this goal, CPU utilization patterns of new applications along with its statistical information are compared with the already known ones in the reference database to find/predict their most probable execution patterns. Because of different pattern lengths, the Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) is utilized for such comparison; a statistical analysis is then applied to DTWs’ outcomes to select the most suitable candidates. Furthermore, under a hypothesis, we also proposed another algorithm to classify applications under similar CPU utilization patterns. Finally, dependency between minimum distance/maximum similarity of applications and their scalability (in both input size and number of virtual nodes) are studied. Here, we used widely used applications (WordCount, Distributed Grep, and Terasort) as well as an Exim Mainlog parsing application to evaluate our hypothesis in automatic tweaking MapReduce configuration parameters in executing similar applications scalable on both size of input data and number of virtual nodes. Results are very promising and showed the effectiveness of our approach on a private cloud with up to 25 virtual nodes.

This study develops the method of determining wind velocity from images of raindrops. The
motivation of this study was to develop a new method of finding wind velocity. In this new
method, digital images or videos of raindrops are processed using computer stereo vision to
extract information about the rain inclination. The rain inclination is then used to compute the
wind velocity. The rain inclination changes with height (and time) due to acceleration from
the force exerted by the wind on the raindrops. A simple experiment was conducted to
demonstrate that it is possible to determine rain inclination from digital images. The
inclination of falling water was found using two perpendicular two-dimensional digital
images. This implies that it is possible to determine rain inclination from digital images.
Some equations relating wind velocity and the trajectory of a raindrop are derived using
Stokes’ Law. Extensive use of fluid mechanics is required to derive accurate equations. Some
hypothetical setups of systems that use this method are described. Wind velocity can also be
determined from stereoscopic videos of raindrop trajectory. Disdrometers may be used
instead of digital cameras when applying this method.
Keywords: rain inclination, raindrop, wind velocity, camera, digital images, stereoscopic
vision, computer stereo vision, epipolar geometry, wind force, disdrometer, pinhole camera
model, fluid mechanics.

In this article one proposes several numerical examples for applying the extension set to 2D- and 3D-spaces. While rectangular and prism geometrical figures can easily be decomposed from 2D and 3D into 1D linear problems, similarly for the circle and the sphere, it is not possible in general to do the same for other geometrical figures.

This paper deals with the error analysis of a novel navigation algorithm that uses as input the sequence of images acquired from a moving camera and a Digital Terrain (or Elevation) Map (DTM/DEM). More specifically, it has been shown that the optical flow derived from two consecutive camera frames can be used in combination with a DTM to estimate the position, orientation and ego-motion parameters of the moving camera. As opposed to previous works, the proposed approach does not require an intermediate explicit reconstruction of the 3D world. In the present work the sensitivity of the algorithm outlined above is studied. The main sources for errors are identified to be the optical-flow evaluation and computation, the quality of the information about the terrain, the structure of the observed terrain and the trajectory of the camera. By assuming appropriate characterization of these error sources, a closed form expression for the uncertainty of the pose and motion of the camera is first developed and then the influence of these factors is confirmed using extensive numerical simulations. The main conclusion of this paper is to establish that the proposed navigation algorithm generates accurate estimates for reasonable scenarios and error sources, and thus can be effectively used as part of a navigation system of autonomous vehicles.

The basic theory on which one chess program can be constructed is that there exists a general characteristic of the game of chess, namely the concept of entropy. We can think about the positive logarithmic values as the measure of entropy and the negative logarithmic values as the measure of information.

This paper presents the solution about the
threat of a VBIED (Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive
Device) obtained with the DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache
Theory). This problem has been proposed recently to the
authors by Simon Maskell and John Lavery as a typical
illustrative example to try to compare the different
approaches for dealing with uncertainty for decision-making
support. The purpose of this paper is to show
in details how a solid justified solution can be obtained
from DSmT approach and its fusion rules thanks to a
proper modeling of the belief functions involved in this
problem.

This short paper introduces two new fusion rules for combining quantitative basic belief
assignments. These rules although very simple have not been proposed in literature so far and could serve as
useful alternatives because of their low computation cost with respect to the recent advanced Proportional
Conflict Redistribution rules developed in the DSmT framework.

We consider an ornamental sign language of first order where principles of sieve displacement, of asymmetric building blocks as a base of ornament symmetry, color exchangeability and side equivalence principles work. Generic aspects of sieve and a genesis of ornamental pattern and ornament signs in it are discussed. Hemiolia principle for ornamental genesis is introduced. The discoverer of most of these principles were artist Modris Tenisons [4, 5, 6, 7 (refs. 23, 24), 8 (ref. 65)]. Here we apply a systematical research using simplest mathematical arguments.
We come to conclusions that mathematical argument in arising ornament is of much more significance than simply symmetries in it as in an image. We are after to inquire how ornament arises from global aspects intertwined with these local. We raise an argument of sign’s origin from code rather from image, and its eventual impact on research of ornamental patterns, and on research of human prehension of sign and its connection with consciousness.
