Using CAE programs, a mechanical design team can quickly and cheaply iterate the design process to develop a product that better meets cost, performance, and other constraints. No physical prototype need be created until the design nears completion, allowing hundreds or thousands of designs to be evaluated, instead of a relative few. In addition, CAE analysis programs can model complicated physical phenomena which cannot be solved by hand, such as viscoelasticity, complex contact between mating parts, or non-Newtonian flows....
Our approach represents the furniture layout guidelines as terms
in a density function and treats manual placement of pieces as
subspace constraints. Since the resulting function is highly mul-
timodal, we employ a Markov chain Monte Carlo sampler to sug-
gest optimized layouts. To deal with the substantial computational
requirements of stochastic sampling, we use graphics hardware to
enable interactive performance.
In summary, our work makes two main contributions. First, we
identify and operationalize a set of design guidelines for furni-
Topic models have been used extensively as a tool for corpus exploration, and a cottage industry has developed to tweak topic models to better encode human intuitions or to better model data. However, creating such extensions requires expertise in machine learning unavailable to potential end-users of topic modeling software. In this work, we develop a framework for allowing users to iteratively reﬁne the topics discovered by models such as latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA) by adding constraints that enforce that sets of words must appear together in the same topic. ...
