This paper studies the problem of identifying erroneous/correct sentences. The problem has important applications, e.g., providing feedback for writers of English as a Second Language, controlling the quality of parallel bilingual sentences mined from the Web, and evaluating machine translation results. In this paper, we propose a new approach to detecting erroneous sentences by integrating pattern discovery with supervised learning models. Experimental results show that our techniques are promising. ...
On a multi-dimensional text categorization task, we compare the effectiveness of a feature based approach with the use of a stateof-the-art sequential learning technique that has proven successful for tasks such as “email act classification”. Our evaluation demonstrates for the three separate dimensions of a well established annotation scheme that novel thread based features have a greater and more consistent impact on classification performance.
Multimodal dialogue systems allow users to input information in multiple modalities. These systems can handle simultaneous or sequential composite multimodal input. Different coordination schemes require such systems to capture, collect and integrate user input in different modalities, and then respond to a joint interpretation. We performed a study to understand the variability of input in multimodal dialogue systems and to evaluate methods to perform the collection of input information.
Let’s face it.
The formal part of software testing is a bore and a necessary
evil at best.
At least that is what most people in software development
will tell you. Testers are on projects to point out mistakes.
Who wants to do that?
Well that is a perception, and this book isn’t going to change it.
What this book will do is skip the ceremony and present
testing concepts, tying them together in a sequential and
Exact evidence about incidence of sleep disorders in patients with epilepsy is not available,
but it is supposed, that the amount is higher in patients with epilepsy than in general
population. For example patients with partial epilepsy have twice higher appearence of
sleep disorders as in healthy group (39% vs 18%) (Bazil, 2003). According to this study
higher presence of sleep disorders did not correlate with antiepileptic therapy.
According to Foldvary-Schaefer (2002) patients with epilepsy have problems with
initialization of sleep and have worse quality of sleep.
Nowadays, Agile application development is usually done at a fast pace when many developers are working on the same piece of code. Every so often, this becomes a real challenge if there’s no permanent control over consistency of the project source. It is often impossible to force lazy and/or busy programmers to execute tests before and after each of their commits. Continuous Integration is a well-known life saver for distributed development environments with TeamCity being one of the best and easy-to-use instruments utilizing it. ...
In the following, we identify the unique subgame perfect equilibrium of
the sequential game described above. Furthermore, government’s regulation
is shown to reduce the diversity in the programs oﬀered by the channels at
equilibrium: the lower the upperlimit imposed by the government to the ad-
vertising rate, the weaker the diversity in the programs!
There are at least three papers closely related to the present analysis.
Vaglio (1995) proposes a Hotelling-type model of the audience for TV-
broadcasting which shares several properties with ours.
Overall, this review provides a glimpse of the ayurvedic
approach to cancer diagnosis and treatment. This review
also attempts to reveal how these approaches can be
employed in today’s world. Cancers of the colon, lung,
breast, and prostate are most prevalent in the Western
world. The mortality and morbidity in India owing to all
of these cancers is very low. For example, the incidence of
prostate cancer is 50-fold less in India compared with the
This study uses what Cresswell (2003) refers to as a ‘mixed methods approach’, one that combines
quantitative and qualitative data collection and a ‘sequential explanatory strategy’ in which the
collection and analysis of the quantitative data is followed by the collection and analysis of the
qualitative data (p 215).
ost of the problems of analyzing survey data have been reasonably well handled, except those revolving around the existence of interaction effects. Indeed, increased efficiency in handling multivariate analyses even with non-numerical variables, has been achieved largely by assuming additivity. An approach to survey data is proposed which imposes no restrictions on interaction effects, focuses on importance in reducing predictive error, operates sequentially, and is independent of the extent of linearity in the classifications or the order in which the explanatory factors are introduced...
More Topics in Linear Unobserved E¤ects Models
This chapter continues our treatment of linear, unobserved e¤ects panel data models. We ﬁrst cover estimation of models where the strict exogeneity Assumption FE.1 fails but sequential moment conditions hold. A simple approach to consistent estimation involves differencing combined with instrumental variables methods.
The topics in this book are not sequential—you can dive in wherever you
need to, work backward, or jump around. But if you’re approaching the
whole process of creating a Web site with Adobe Creative Suite 5, it makes
sense to start with Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver functions as the coordinating
center for Web sites. A good grasp of Dreamweaver is helpful
to seeing the big picture of how other elements of your site fit together.
For many manufacturing enterprises, assembly is an important portion of the final costs. Effectiveness
was traditionally hunted for by reducing complex schedules into unit tasks (scientific work organization)
and by enabling sequential assembly lines (vertical flow-shop). The approach leads to the highest productivity,
and it is prised for mass production. Flow-lines and fixed schedules, however, require amortisation
plans based on steady programmes on duty horizons corresponding to product volumes exceeding
some minimal threshold.
A sequential explanatory mixed methods approach was chosen for this study as the intention was to
use the qualitative results to ‘assist in explaining and interpreting the findings of a primarily
quantitative study’ (Cresswell, 2003, p 215). Scores from a current IELTS Test (Test 2) and an earlier
one (Test 1) provided quantitative data for analysis. Interviews were conducted after Test 2 with
almost all of the participants. A combination of both quantitative and qualitative approaches such as
this is justified by many researchers in human research.
The sequential engineering approach to product design and development typically treats design and
manufacturing as isolated activities. In this approach, the design department designs an artifact and
throws it “over the wall” to the manufacturing department without taking into consideration the manufacturing
capabilities and limitations of the shop floor. The manufacturing department, in turn, studies
the design from a manufacturability viewpoint and throws it back “over the wall” to the design department
with a list of manufacturing concerns.
The proposed activity is the most appropriate approach to the problems outlined under Section 1.5. Vietnamese and Australian scientists and industry stakeholders will work jointly, intensively and sequentially to: (i) describe the existing situations; (ii) identify and describe problems and constraints; (iii) develop recommendations and plans for mitigating the constraints and encouraging future research and development in the industry; and (iv) seek industry feedback by wide dissemination and discussion of the plans, proposals, and findings and recommendations....
The approach to assessing climate risks and im-
pacts consists of the following sequential steps: (1)
determining climate variables at the level of the
city/watershed through downscaling techniques;
(2) estimating impacts and vulnerability through
hydrometeorological modeling, scenario analysis,
and GIS mapping; and (3) preparing a damage/
loss assessment and identification/prioritization
of adaptation options.
As a first step, each of the city-level studies
considered two IPCC scenarios, a high- and a low-
and estimated climate risks
Greenplum utilizes a “parallel-everywhere” approach to loading, in which data flows from one or more source systems
to every node of the database without any sequential choke points. This approach differs from traditional “bulk loading”
technologies—used by most mainstream database and MPP appliance vendors—which push data from a single
source, often over a single channel or a small number of parallel channels, and result in fundamental bottlenecks and
ever- increasing load times.
