We search the domains which the match concepts of the query terms belong to or include in the domain ontology. And we build a new domain ontology based on these domains and ...


A semantic feature space for disease prediction

Mariam Daoud; Jimmy Xiangji Huang; William Melek; C. Joseph Kurian 2013 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, 2013

The huge amount of data generated by modern medicine has motivated us to develop decision support systems for improving health care applications. In this paper, we address the problem of clinical disease prediction given patient-reported symptoms and medical signs where patient records lack of semantic code annotation. We propose a novel context-enhanced disease prediction approach based on leveraging semantic and ...

  • Linear Optimization

    Today's need-to-know optimization techniques, at your fingertips The use of optimization methods is familiar territory to academicians and researchers. Yet, in today's world of deregulated electricity markets, it's just as important for electric power professionals to have a solid grasp of these increasingly relied upon techniques. Making those techniques readily accessible is the hallmark of Optimization Principles: Practical Applications to the Operation and Markets of the Electric Power Industry. With deregulation, market rules and economic principles dictate that commodities be priced at the marginal value of their production. As a result, it's necessary to work with ever-more-sophisticated algorithms using optimization techniques- either for the optimal dispatch of the system itself, or for pricing commodities and the settlement of markets. Succeeding in this new environment takes a good understanding of methods that involve linear and nonlinear optimization, including optimal power flow, locational marginal prices for energy, and the auction of hedging instruments. In its comprehensive, skill- building overview of optimization techniques, Optimization Principles puts you on the same footing with algorithm-savvy software developers. Starting with a helpful look at matrix algebra fundamentals, this just-in-time reference covers: * Deregulated electricity markets: terminology and acronyms * Solution of equations, inequalities, and linear programs * Unconstrained and constrained nonlinear optimization * Applications to practical problems addressing system dispatch, market design, and material procurement * And related topics As an aid to the uninitiated, appendices provide a brief description of basic principles of electricity, and the developmen t of network equations. Optimization Principles allows you to learn optimization methods at your own pace using Microsoft Excel or MATLAB software, and it includes an FTP web site with downloadable Excel spreadsheets and problems. After mastering these practical applications, you can then refer to chapters that highlight the theoretical background of the algorithms and resulting solutions. The book also includes a Web site with downloadable files of all example problems and solved problems. Ideal for engineers, other electric power professionals, and advanced engineering students, Optimization Principles demystifies the electric power industry under deregulation-and delivers a complete, learn-as-you-go tutorial of optimization techniques that no other resource can match.

    A brilliant instruction set for achieving CMM® and CMMI® Level 2 requirementsMany organizations, in their push to complete a successful Level 2 CMM or CMMI appraisal, make sizable investments to develop and document their software processes. This book helps these organizations save both time and money while skillfully moving from the chaos of a free-form software development process to one that is controlled, documented, and repeatable. Specifically, the author demonstrates how the application of select IEEE Software Engineering Standards ensures the production of higher quality, reproducible software products.Although the CMM and CMMI set forth standards in six Key Process Areas (KPAs) that must be satisfied to achieve Level 2 accreditation, they do not provide guidance on how to reach these standards. Readers will discover why that role should fall to the IEEE Software Engineering Standards, which, when applied effectively, can be used to develop best practices and fulfill the requirements associated with effective software project management. This book provides the link between Level 2 requirements and the supporting items available in the IEEE Software Engineering Standards. Using the detailed matrices that the author has designed to map Level 2 requirements to IEEE Software Engineering Standards, readers can better understand and meet the criteria set forth in all six KPAs.Everything needed to meet Level 2 requirements is provided: Introduction and overview Summary of SW-CMM Summary of CMMI-SW (Staged) Differences between CMM and CMMI-SW (Staged) IEEE Software Engineering StandardsTechnical terminology for each phase of a CMM and a CMMI-SW model is explained in simple language making them easy to understand. For organizations that do n ot wish to pursue Level 2 accreditation, the book is still an essential resource that provides practical guidance for developing sound software engineering practices. This book is recommended for all software engineers, project managers, and auditors.
