    An Adaptive Learning Algorithm for Supervised Neural Network with Contour Preserving Classification 

    Piyabute Fuangkhon; Thitipong Tanprasert (2009-11)

    A study of noise tolerance characteristics of an adaptive learning algorithm for supervised neural network is presented in this paper. The algorithm allows the existing knowledge to age out in slow rate as a supervised neural network is gradually retrained with consecutive sets of new samples, resembling the change of application locality under a consistent environment. The algorithm utilizes the contour preserving classification algorithm to pre-process the training data to improve the classification and the noise tolerance. The experimental ...

    Clustering approach to examination scheduling 

    To, Tang Van; Win, Soe San (2010-05)

    The difficulty in examination scheduling is to draw an examination timetable by taking a number of different constraints into account. This paper attempts to optimize two major constraints-to minimize the examination time conflicts and the number of consecutive examinations for a student in a day. Clustering method is applied by analyzing exam enrollments and then groups students into clusters so that students within a cluster are having more similar subject combination to each others than those in another clusters. The purpose of clustering ...

    Gopalakrishnan, Anilkumar Kothalil; Thitipong Tanprasert; Faculty of Science and Technology (2010-05)

    A novel procedure for diagnosing prostate cancer (PC) based on Back propagation Neural Network (BPNN) is proposed. Elderly men with symptoms such as urinary retention, urinary hesitancy, urinary dribbling, burning urination, hematuria, etc. are considered as primary attributes. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level and Gleason score are the secondary attributes. Initial dataset is generated based on the clinical database. The BPNN assigns symptom levels of a set of patients based on their primary attributes. A greedy decision procedure ...

    Distance measurement with smartphone using acceleration model of hand movement 

    Eakawat Tantamjarik; Thitipong Tanprasert (2016-02)

    This paper proposes a novel method to obtain the displacement of a smartphone movement. The method utilizes genetic algorithm to synthesize a mathematical model of acceleration based on behavior of a person's hand movement from the raw acceleration data. Then, double integration is performed on the synthesized acceleration model, which is significantly less affected by the noise accumulation. The raw acceleration of the hand's movement is calibrated initially using acceleration-time graph analysis and a modified version of peak detection based ...

    Energy Efficient Topology Control in Multi-hop Wireless Networks based on One-hop and Two-hop Neighbor Information 

    Maw, Min Min Thet; Kunagorn Kunavut (2016-07)

    Topology control in multi-hop wireless networks is a technique used to control nodes' activities to construct a topology with an acceptable level of network connectivity while minimizing energy consumption. It can be broadly classified into two main paradigms which are State Scheduling and Transmission Power Control. Both of them have received lots of attention from many researchers for decades. According to Transmission Power Control technique, most of them take into account only one-hop neighbor information to optimize transmission power ...

    Watjatrakul, B. (2016-04)

    Personality traits and perceived product values are increasingly used to explain how people adopt innovative technologies. However, their relationships and effects on online learning adoption are ill-defined. This study investigates one of the common personality trait - openness to experience - and the value dimensions of theory of consumption values - functional (quality and monetary) value, social value, emotional value, epistemic value, and conditional value - to understand students’ intentions to adopt online learning. The study used a ...

    Motion vector recovery for error concealment based on angular similarity 

    Siriwhaddhanah Pongpadpinit (2009-07)

    This paper presents a motion vector (MV) recovery using the similarity of the angle of the corresponding surrounded MVs. The approach is based on the assumption that a group of macroblocks (MBs) which belongs to the same object and resides in the same region likely to move in the same direction. hence, those corresponded MVs that move in the same direction likely to have similar angle. As a result a lost motion vector can be estimated using a set of candidate MVs selected from the neighbouring MVs on the left, top-left, top, top-right, right, ...

    A Novel Adaptive Topology Control in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks based on Connectivity Index 

    Kunagorn Kunavut (2015-11)

    Mobile ad hoc networks or MANETs are infrastructureless wireless networks where each node can freely move and directly connect to the other nodes located within its transmission range to form the topology in any arbitrary pattern. Hence, to ensure network connectivity, each node tends to use the maximum transmission power to extend its transmission range. However, this maximized transmission range typically consumes more energy and consequently drains battery faster on mobile devices in these networks. Topology control is an effective technique ...
