A Method for Improving Conversion Rate and Accuracy of a Capacitance-to-Digital Converter

a specially designed method to achieve high accuracy even when a much smaller number of excitation cycles, than the reported scheme, are employed to complete the conversion. A prototype CDC has been developed and tested. In comparison with an existing CDC, the new CDC achieved a substantial reduction (by a factor of 4000) in the number of excitation cycles during integration period, resulting in an improved update rate. Worst case error observed from the prototype CDC was less than 0.24%.

A NOVEL KNOWLEDGE-COMPATIBILITY BENCHMARKER FOR SEMANTIC SEGMENTATION

The quality of a semantic annotation is typically measured with its averaged class-accuracy value, whose computation requires scarce ground-truth annotations. We observe that humans accumulate knowledge through their vision and believe that the quality of a semantic annotation is proportionally related to its compatibility with the vision-based knowledge. We propose a knowledge-compatibility benchmarker, whose backbone is a regression machine. It takes as input a semantic annotation and the

ON ASYMMETRY OF PREDICTION ERRORS IN SMALL AREA ESTIMATION

The mean squared error reflects only the average prediction accuracy while the distribution of squared prediction error is positively skewed. Hence, assessing or comparing accuracy based on the MSE (which is the mean of squared errors) is insufficient and even inadequate because we should be interested not only in the average but in the whole distribution of prediction errors. This is the reason why we propose to use different than MSE measures of prediction accuracy in small area estimation

Robust Fusion Algorithms for Linear Dynamic System with Uncertainty

In this paper, two robust fusion algorithms for a linear system with observation uncertainty are proposed. The first algorithm is based on the classical median function and the second one uses relative distances between local estimates and their median value. In the view of estimation accuracy, the proposed fusion algorithms can be robust against uncertainty measurements since median can avoid extremely big or small values. This fact is verified from comparative analysis using numerical
