  • Physics Informed Machine Learning of SPH: Machine Learning Lagrangian Turbulence

    Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) is a mesh-free Lagrangian method for obtaining approximate numerical solutions of the equations of fluid dynamics; which has been widely applied to weakly- and strongly compressible turbulence in astrophysics and engineering applications. We present a learn-able hierarchy of parameterized and "physics-explainable" SPH informed fluid simulators using …

  • Pyramidal Blur Aware X-Corner Chessboard Detector

    With camera resolution ever increasing and the need to rapidly recalibrate robotic platforms in less than ideal environments, there is a need for faster and more robust chessboard fiducial marker detectors. A new chessboard detector is proposed that is specifically designed for: high resolution images, focus/motion blur, harsh lighting conditions, …

  • Symmetric properties and two variants of shuffle-cubes

    Li et al. in [Inf. Process. Lett. 77 (2001) 35--41] proposed the shuffle cube $SQ_{n}$ as an attractive interconnection network topology for massive parallel and distributed systems. By far, symmetric properties of the shuffle cube remains unknown. In this paper, we show that $SQ_{n}$ is not vertex-transitive for all $n>2$, …

  • AQP: An Open Modular Python Platform for Objective Speech and Audio Quality Metrics

    Audio quality assessment has been widely researched in the signal processing area. Full-reference objective metrics (e.g., POLQA, ViSQOL) have been developed to estimate the audio quality relying only on human rating experiments. To evaluate the audio quality of novel audio processing techniques, researchers constantly need to compare objective quality metrics. …

  • Understanding Interlocking Dynamics of Cooperative Rationalization

    Selective rationalization explains the prediction of complex neural networks by finding a small subset of the input that is sufficient to predict the neural model output. The selection mechanism is commonly integrated into the model itself by specifying a two-component cascaded system consisting of a rationale generator, which makes a …

  • Defining Blockchain Governance Principles: A Comprehensive Framework

    Blockchain eliminates the need for trusted third party intermediaries in business by enabling decentralised architecture in software applications. However, vulnerabilities in on-chain autonomous decision-making and cumbersome off-chain coordination have led to serious concerns about blockchain's ability to behave and make decisions in a trustworthy and efficient way. Blockchain governance has …

  • Quantitative Evaluation of Snapshot Graphs for the Analysis of Temporal Networks

    One of the most common approaches to the analysis of dynamic networks is through time-window aggregation. The resulting representation is a sequence of static networks, i.e. the snapshot graph. Despite this representation being widely used in the literature, a general framework to evaluate the soundness of snapshot graphs is still …

  • Mind the Gap: Assessing Temporal Generalization in Neural Language Models

    Our world is open-ended, non-stationary, and constantly evolving; thus what we talk about and how we talk about it change over time. This inherent dynamic nature of language contrasts with the current static language modelling paradigm, which trains and evaluates models on utterances from overlapping time periods. Despite impressive recent …
