1. Computational Intelligence Based Decision Support Tool for Personalized Advertisement Assignment System

Kemal Kilic, Onur Bozkurt
Pages: 396 - 410
In this paper a comprehensive framework that maximizes advertising revenues of a company in a personalized advertisement setting is presented. The research was motivated from a real life problem faced by a company that develops a web based 3-D virtual reality social platform. The objective of the research...

2. Relations among similarity measure, subsethood measure and fuzzy entropy

Yingfang Li, Keyun Qin, Xingxing He
Pages: 411 - 422
In this paper we study the relations among similarity measure, subsethood measure and fuzzy entropy and present several propositions that similarity measure, subsethood measure and fuzzy entropy can be transformed by each other based on their axiomatic definitions. Some new formulae to calculate similarity...

3. Group Evidential Reasoning Approach for MADA under Fuzziness and Uncertainties

Mi Zhou, Xin-Bao Liu, Jian-Bo Yang, Chang Fang
Pages: 423 - 441
Multiple attribute decision analysis (MADA) problems often include both qualitative and quantitative attributes which may be either precise or inaccurate. The evidential reasoning (ER) approach is one of reliable and rational methods for dealing with MADA problems and can generate aggregated assessments...

4. Construction of Fuzzy Ontologies from Fuzzy UML Models

Fu Zhang, Z. M. Ma
Pages: 442 - 472
The success and proliferation of the Semantic Web depends heavily on construction of Web ontologies. However, classical ontology construction approaches are not sufficient for handling imprecise and uncertain information that is commonly found in many application domains. Therefore, great efforts on...

5. Agile Prediction of Ongoing Temporal Sequences Based on Dominative Random Subsequences

Ning Yang, Changjie Tang
Pages: 473 - 486
This paper identifies a new paradigm of prediction, of ongoing temporal sequences, which achieves an acceptable accuracy just by the historical subsequences as short as possible and as close to the predicted time point as possible. To address agile prediction, a new concept, (DRS for short), is first...

6. A Fuzzy Multi-Attribute Decision Making Model for Strategic Risk Assessment

Rabia Arikan, Metin Dağdeviren, Mustafa Kurt
Pages: 487 - 502
Risk assessment is a very important issue for an effective institution, since the lack of accurate risk assessment method or the improper risk management might cause problems to achieve institutions’ strategic objectives. There are a finite number of risks which have to be ranked considering many...

7. An Algorithm Based on Neuro-Fuzzy Controller Implemented in A Smart Clothing System For Obstacle Avoidance

Senem Kursun Bahadir, Sebastien Thomassey, Vladan Koncar, Fatma Kalaoglu
Pages: 503 - 517
In this study, to overcome navigation concerns of visually impaired people, an algorithm based on neuro-fuzzy controller composed of multi-layer fuzzy inference systems (FIS) for obstacle avoidance was developed and it was implemented in a smart clothing system. The success of the proposed algorithm...

8. The study of fuzzy context sequences

Cristina Alcalde, Ana Burusco, Ramón Fuentes-González
Pages: 518 - 529
In some cases, the relationship between an object set and an attribute set is set up by means of a fuzzy context sequence. A particular case of this situation appears when we want to study the evolution of an L-fuzzy context in time.

9. Resource-constraint Multi-project Scheduling with Priorities and Uncertain Activity Durations

Zheng Zheng, Lin Shumin, Guo Ze, Zhu Yueni
Pages: 530 - 547
Resource-constraint multi-project scheduling is one of the most important topic in the field of project management. Most current works solve this problem based on an idea that multiple projects can be simply emerged into a super-project in a deterministic environment, regardless of the project priority...

10. Cooperative Fuzzy Games with a Coalition Structure and Interval Payoffs

Fanyong Meng, Qiang Zhang, Yan Wang
Pages: 548 - 558
Based on the extension Hukuhara difference between interval numbers, a generalized form of cooperative fuzzy games with a coalition structure and interval payoffs is proposed, which can be seen as an extension of crisp case. The interval Owen value for this kind of fuzzy games is studied, and its explicit...

11. Cross entropy-based memetic algorithms: An application study over the tool switching problem

Jhon Edgar Amaya, Carlos Cotta, AntonioJ. Fernández-Leiva
Pages: 559 - 584
This paper presents a parameterized schema for building memetic algorithms based on cross-entropy (CE) methods. This novel schema is general in nature, and features multiple probability mass functions and Lamarckian learning. The applicability of the approach is assessed by considering the Tool Switching...

12. Tap-Changing Operations of Multiple Transformers using ANN Based Controller

Md Fakhrul Islam, Amanullah Maung Than Oo
Pages: 585 - 594
Tap changing operations of multiple transformers at a substation is a complex problem due to issues in controlling the parallel operations of the transformers involved, differences in manufacturer's design and inaccuracy of the measures. In earlier work Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based tap changer...
