  • Daly, Ronan; Shen, Qiang; Aitken, Stuart (2011-05)
    Bayesian networks have become a widely used method in the modelling of uncertain knowledge. Owing to the difficulty domain experts have in specifying them, techniques that learn Bayesian networks from data have become ...
  • Snooke, Neal (2010-08-04)
    This paper argues that software engineering should not overlook the lessons learned by other engineering disciplines with longer established histories. As software engineering evolves it should focus not only on application ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Galea, Michelle (2006)
    FRANTIC, a system inspired by insect behaviour for inducing fuzzy IF-THEN rules, is enhanced to produce rules with linguistic hedges. FRANTIC is evaluated against an earlier version of itself and against several other fuzzy ...
  • Halliwell, Joe; Shen, Qiang (2009-01)
    Over the past two decades a number of different approaches to “fuzzy probabilities” have been presented. The use of the same term masks fundamental differences. This paper surveys these different theories, contrasting and ...
  • Rasmani, Khairul A.; Garibaldi, Jonathan M.; Shen, Qiang; Ellis, Ian O. (IEEE, 2009-08)
    The use of linguistic rulesets is considered one of the greatest advantages that fuzzy classification systems can offer compared to non-fuzzy classification systems. This paper proposes the use of fuzzy thresholds and fuzzy ...
  • Iam-On, N.; Boongoen, Tossapon; Garrett, Simon Martin; Price, Christopher John (2011-12)
    Cluster ensembles have recently emerged as a powerful alternative to standard cluster analysis, aggregating several input data clusterings to generate a single output clustering, with improved robustness and stability. ...
  • Lee, Mark (2000-06)
    Over the past three decades, tactile sensing has developed into a sophisticated technology. There has been a longstanding and widely held expectation that tactile sensors would have a major impact on industrial robotics ...
  • MacParthaláin, Neil Seosamh; Jensen, Richard (IEEE, 2009-11-30)
    For supervised learning, feature selection algorithms attempt to maximise a given function of predictive accuracy. This function usually considers the ability of feature vectors to reflect decision class labels. It is ...

  • Shen, Qiang; Daly, Ronan (2007)
    Bayesian networks have become a standard technique in the representation of uncertain knowledge. This paper proposes methods that can accelerate the learning of a Bayesian network structure from a data set. These methods ...
  • Liang, Shen; He, Jun (2010-07)
    The performance of Evolutionary Programming (EP) is affected by many factors (e.g. mutation operators and selection strategies). Although the conventional approach with Gaussian mutation operator may be efficient, the ...
  • He, Jun; Kang, Lishan (2009-04-23)
    Multigrid methods have been proven to be an efficient approach in accelerating the convergence rate of numerical algorithms for solving partial differential equations. This paper investigates whether multigrid methods are ...
  • Snooke, Neal (2004-06)
    Failure Mode and Effects Analysis is widely used in engineering hardware systems to help in understanding the effects of potential failures and the faults that cause them to occur. The analysis is iterative leading to ...
  • Lee, Mark (2000)
    The software engineering industry suffers from almost unmanageable complexity both in the products it produces and in the processes of production. One of the current shortcomings in the software production process is the ...
  • Price, Chris; Struss, Peter (2004-01)
    The automotive industry was the first to promote the development of applications of model-based systems technology on a broad scale and, as a result, has produced some of the most advanced prototypes and products. In this ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Zhao, Ruiqing; Tang, Wansheng (2008-10)
    This short paper discusses the modeling of random fuzzy renewal reward processes in which the interarrival times and rewards are represented by nonnegative random fuzzy variables. Based on random fuzzy theory, a random ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Rasmani, Khairul (2004)
    The use of fuzzy quantifiers in linguistic fuzzy models helps to build fuzzy systems that use linguistic terms in a more natural way. Although several fuzzy quantification techniques have been developed, the application ...
  • Doerr, Benjamin; Jansen, Thomas; Sudholt, Dirk; Winzen, Carola; Zarges, Christine (2013)
    Extending previous analyses on function classes like linear functions, we analyze how the simple (1+1) evolutionary algorithm optimizes pseudo-Boolean functions that are strictly monotonic. These functions have the property ...
  • Boongoen, Tossapon; Shen, Qiang (2010-12)
    The intuition of data reliability has recently been incorporated into the main stream of research on ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operators. Instead of relying on human-guided variables, the aggregation behavior is ...
  • Chen, Tianshi; He, Jun; Chen, Guoliang; Yao, Xin (2009-10-01)
    In the past decades, many theoretical results related to the time complexity of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) on different problems are obtained. However, there is not any general and easy-to-apply approach designed ...
