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

KNOWLEDGE-BASED ECONOMY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION – CROSS-COUNTRY ANALYSIS

The knowledge-based economy is an economy where knowledge is created, acquired, transmitted and used effectively by businesses, organizations, individuals and communities. It is not narrowly focused on the industries of advanced technology or ICT, but provides a framework for analysing the range of policy options in education, information infrastructure and systems of innovation, which could help contribute to the knowledge economy. The aim of the paper is to analyse spatial differences in the

This paper discusses a new decision-support system that integrates data warehouse, knowledge warehouse and model warehouse. Contrast to the fixed model of the old decision-support system and its limited application, the new system can overcome the shortcoming of the old system efficiently, and also it can simplify model-obtaining and coding. So the new system strengthens the effectiveness, intelligence and efficiency of the decision.

HOW TO DO IT WITH STICKY NOTES: A METHOD FOR EXPLORING EXPERT KNOWLEDGE TO PREPARE GUIDELINES FOR PRACTICE IN RAILWAY VEHICLE MAINTENANCE

However, it is increasingly evident that procedures understood as sets of orders and prohibitions can be counter-productive because they do not allow the proper use of employees’ knowledge and experience. Therefore, it is postulated that guidelines for practice should be co-developed by employees from the ‘sharp end’ of the organization, but there are no simple

A review of the Knops blood group: separating fact from fallacy

We have learned a lot about these antibodies in the past 10 years and that knowledge has helped us to understand some of the unusual characteristics of these antibodies. Furthermore, it has helped us to name and delineate the various associated blood group systems. Although we will begin with a general review of HTLAs, this manuscript will focus on the

MOVING OBJECT DETECTION IN CAR TRAFFIC WITH IMPLEMENTATION OF OPTICAL SENSORS

In this investigation, the problem of moving object detection - without any knowledge - is classified. It describes a technique that will allow real-time localization with usage of IR sensors. The proposed algorithm is simplistic, and in the future, it might be implemented into any vehicle, premium or entry level. It is guided by AI that must calculate its next moves in the blink of an eye without user noticing any delays. The main problem of moving object recognition was extraction of proper
