Unsupervised Topic Labeling of Text Based on Wikipedia Categorization
Tetyana Loskutova
(Pages: 1-5)

Defining text topicality is often an expensive problem that requires significant resources for text labeling. Though many packages already exist that provide dictionaries of labeled text, synonyms, and Part-of-Speach tagging, the problem is ongoing as language develops and new meanings of words and phrases emerge. This paper proposes a cheap in human labor solution to topic labeling of any text in the majority of languages. The methodology uses links to the naturally emerging corpus of labeled text – the Wikipedia. Wikipedia categories are processed to extract a weighted set of topic labels for the analyzed text. The approach is evaluated by processing categorized texts and comparing the similarity of the top ranks of topic labels to the text category. The topic labels extracted using this methodology can be used for comparing similarity of texts, for the assessment of the completeness of topic coverage in automated marking of essays, and for coding in qualitative text analysis. The paper contributes to the field of NLP by offering a cheap and organically developing method of topical text labeling. The paper contributes to the work of qualitative analysts by offering a methodology for the analysis of interview transcripts and other unstructured text.




The Outlines of an Art Machine
Tirtha Prasad Mukhopadhyay, Victor Hugo Jimenez
(Pages: 6-9)

In this paper we propose to examine the cognitive aspects of artistic creation. Art objects are supposed to elicit emotional responses in the viewer. Behavior related to the making of art objects are analysed. Both visual art and artistic verbal expressions are considered for analysis. Emotional appraisal is claimed to be indispensable to artistic creativity, as opposed to appraisal objectives in design cognition where structural variation and the resulting innovations produced could well be emotively neutral in their appearance. The authors propose a heuristic and connective-functionalist thesis of machine art following identification of responsive elements for art as they are laid down in precepts of different philosophical traditions. The insights deriving from ancient and contemporary traditions demonstrate that innovative variation in art presupposes the presence of a set of corresponding variations in visual patterns or linguistic expressions that typify a range of expectations for target objects. A database of categorically defined ‘genre’ of art should exhibit visual or verbal preferences in interactions. Binary operations may be domain specific depending on the kind of art that is under scrutiny, but from a philosophical perspective, emotional representation must be assumed to be indispensable across generic requirements.

(Pages: 18-25)

Short-range wind speed predictions for subtropical region is performed by applying Artificial Neural Network (ANN) technique to the hourly time series representative of the site. To train the ANN and validate the technique, data for one year are collected by one tower, with anemometers installed at heights of 101.8, 81.8, 25.7, and 10.0 m. Different ANN configurations to Multilayer Perceptron (MLP), Recurrent Neural Network (RNN), Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU), and Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), a deep learning algorithm based method, are applied for each site and height. A quantitative analysis is conducted and the statistical results are evaluated to select the configuration that best predicts the real data. These methods have lower computational costs than other techniques, such as numerical modelling. The proposed method is an important scientific contribution for reliable large-scale wind power forecasting and integration into existing grid systems in Uruguay. The best results of the short-term wind speed forecasting was for MLP, which performed the forecasts using a hybrid method based on recursive inference, followed by LSTM, at all the anemometer heights tested, suggesting that this method is a powerful tool that can help the Administración Nacional de Usinas y Transmissiones Eléctricas manage the national energy supply.




An Empirical Analysis of the Influence of Seismic Data Modeling for Estimating Velocity Models with Fully Convolutional Networks
Luan Rios Campos, Peterson Nogueira, Davidson Moreira, Erick Giovani Sperandio Nascimento
(Pages: 26-32)

Seismic modeling is the process of simulating wave propagations in a medium to represent underlying structures of a subsurface area of the earth. This modeling is based on a set of parameters that determine how the data is produced. Recent studies have demonstrated that deep learning methods can be trained with seismic data to estimate velocity models that give a representation of the subsurface where the seismic data was generated. Thus, an analysis is made on the impact that different sets of parameters have on the estimation of velocity models by a fully convolutional network (FCN). The experiments varied the number of sources among four options (1, 10, 25 or 50 shots) and used three different ranges of peak frequencies: 4, 8 and 16 Hz. The results demonstrated that, although the number of sources have more influence on the computational time needed to train the FCN than the peak frequency, both changes have significant impact on the quality of the estimation. The best estimations were obtained with the experiment of 25 sources with 4 Hz and increasing the peak frequency to 8 Hz improved even more the results, especially regarding the FCN’s loss function.




Artificial Intelligence in Medicine: Preparing for the Confirmed Inevitable. Theoretical and Methodological Considerations
Andrey V. Rezaev, Piotr K. Yablonskiy
(Pages: 33-36)

The AI in Medicine project began with a simple yet complex and multilevel question. In late 2017, prompted by direct experience of researching human-machine interchanges, we asked whether the traditional principles of interaction between a physician and a patient in the time of technological and computer revolution had changed. That, in turn, led to other questions. Was the very concept of principles of doctor-patient interaction, as an interaction between ‘Subject’ and ‘Object’, still relevant in the 21st century? While such principles are not deterministic, in the past they were followed meticulously. Whether they still wield their original instructive power is an intriguing question. But it is not our immediate purpose. We do not intend to replace one set of principles, locked up to time and place, with another set equally constrained. We acknowledge that there would be no quick and easy answers. As an initial move we simply seek to elicit the right questions.

We hope our paper will offer a mechanism for constructive engagement, discussion and discovery. The broadest possible engagement is crucial to meeting the kaleidoscope of irregular issues in interactions between medical professionals and general public that characterizes our time of Internet dominance.

More importantly, the paper extends an invitation to think anew, across the traditional barriers of scholarly disciplines, policies and habits.

Studying Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Sociality in Natural Sciences, Engineering, and Social Sciences: Possibility and Reality
Andrey V. Rezaev, Anastasia A. Ivanova
(Pages: 43-45)

The paper highlights issues of studying artificial intelligence (AI). The path taken here is to engage the reader in a discussion of interdisciplinarity/crossdisciplinarity of AI studies. It begins with a basic assumption and key argument that antidisciplinarity rather than inter- or multi-disciplinarity will bring a new dynamic to scientific research dealing with “artificial intelligence” and “artificial sociality”. Discussion of the social scientists’ concerns and problems is reported in what follows. On this base the authors develop their ideas which may help theorists and empirical researchers to tackle questions of AI development in a society. In a conclusion the paper makes correlations of the research outcomes with a reality of higher education.

Yesid Briceno-Fajardo, Gustavo Cerda-Villafana, Sergio Ledesma-Orozco
(Pages: 46-49)

The output power of Photovoltaic (PV) arrays presents a nonlinear behavior. Its maximum power point varies with the cell’s temperature and solar radiation. It is due to this situation that Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) methods have been proposed and used in order to maximize the PV array output power. This paper presents an artificial neural network (ANN) combined with the classic Perturbation and Observation (P&O) algorithm to accelerate the search of such Maximum Power Point. Simulations generated using Matlab/Simulink show the improvement compared to the P&O alone and the hardware implementation, using a 16-bit microcontroller corroborates these findings.

The Traffic congestion is one of the most intricate and challenging problems in all major cities and urban area of Bangladesh. Inadequate road infrastructure is one of the major causes involved with this agonizing issue. The only existing solution to this issue is manual reporting to authority. This study proposes an app-based road state classification, damage detection, and reporting system to assist both the drivers and authority to identify the damaged roads through a proposed web platform. This paper has made various contributions to address the road type classification of Bangladesh. The proposed research work includes the first of its kind road surface classification dataset, prepared in Bangladesh that could be used for applying machine learning techniques. The dataset has been classified in five classes based on the surface condition. The research team then studied some of the state-of-the-art Residual network based machine learning models and later proposed a customized architecture with a smaller number of layers compared to the state-of-the-art Inception-v3 and Inception-ResNet-V2 architectures for classification purpose. The study has explored three different state-of-the-art machine learning models i.e. Inception-v3, Inception-ResNet-v2, Xception for classification and analyzed their results.
