2013 Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Conference (BSEC)

The central theme of the conference is Integrating Experiments, Simulations and Modeling for Biomedical Advances: From Single Molecules to Public Health Dynamics. From studying individual molecular events to modeling how diseases spread within heterogeneous populations, there is an increasing need to integrate information from disparate sources (including social media and crowd-sourcing), high through-put experiments to large-scale computational simulations, multi-modality patient data. Mathematical modeling and analysis are indispensible in understanding spatiotemporal behaviors of complex biomedical systems. Bringing together researchers from disparate scientific disciplines and organizations is essential to gain novel insights and to propose innovative solutions to the theoretical, methodological and analytical problems of such challenging knowledge discovery undertake. The conference will cover both basic research and translational aspects of interdisciplinary collaborations.

Zhang dynamics with modified error-functions for online solution of nonlinear equations so as to avoid local minima

Yunong Zhang; Zhende Ke; Kene Li; Zhan Li 2011 Chinese Control and Decision Conference (CCDC), 2011

Our previous work shows the efficacy and better performance of the Zhang dynamics (ZD) model for solving online nonlinear equations, as compared with the conventional gradient dynamics (GD) model. It is also discovered that, if a nonlinear equation possesses a local minimum point, the ZD state, starting from some initial value close to it, may move towards the local minimum ...

This paper presents what the authors believe to be a mature approach to undergraduate publishing. It is rooted in the idea that the value which professionals bring to society comes not only from the quantity and quality of their professional knowledge but more importantly from their ability to use that knowledge for the good of others. Undergraduates who begin to ...


An immune-based ant colony algorithm for static and dynamic optimization

X. Wang; X. Z. Gao; S. J. Ovaska 2007 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, 2007

This paper proposes a hybrid optimization method based on the ant colony and clonal selection algorithms, in which the cloning and mutation operations are embedded in the ant colony to enhance its search capability. The novel algorithm is employed to deal with a few benchmark optimization problems under both static and dynamic environments. Simulation results demonstrate the remarkable advantages of ...


Deciding consistency of a point-duration network with metric constraints

I. Navarrete; A. Sattar; R. Marin 10th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning, 2003 and Fourth International Conference on Temporal Logic. Proceedings., 2003

We introduce a new model, MPDN, for quantitative temporal reasoning with points and durations, that supposes an extension of the TCSP formalism and previous point-duration network models. The problem of deciding consistency for a MPDN is shown to be NP-complete. So, we identify a tractable fragment, named simple MPDN, that subsumes the STP model and allows for duration reasoning. Necessary ...

    When we play the ancient and noble game of chess, we grapple with ideas about honesty, deceitfulness, bravery, fear, aggression, beauty, and creativity, which echo (or allow us to depart from) the attitudes we take in our daily lives. Chess is an activity in which we deploy almost all our available cognitive resources; therefore, it makes an ideal laboratory for investigation into the workings of the mind. Indeed, research into artificial intelligence (AI) has used chess as a model for intelligent behavior since the 1950s. In Chess Metaphors, Diego Rasskin-Gutman explores fundamental questions about memory, thought, emotion, consciousness, and other cognitive processes through the game of chess, using the moves of thirty-two pieces over sixty-four squares to map the structural and functional organization of the brain. Rasskin-Gutman focuses on the cognitive task of problem solving, exploring it from the perspectives of both biology and AI. Examining AI researchers' efforts to program a computer that could beat a flesh-and-blood grandmaster (and win a world chess championship), he finds that the results fall short when compared to the truly creative nature of the human mind.
