Identification of novel differentially methylated dna regions using active learning and imbalanced class learners
Epigenetics refers to the changes in gene expression which are caused by other mechanisms other than the DNA sequence. Environmental influences can alter epigenetic states in the germ line that can be further transmitted ...
AUTOMATED FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT OF SMART HOME RESIDENTS
This dissertation proposes smart home-based intelligent techniques that perform automated assessment of a resident's well-being by monitoring their behavior inside the home. We hypothesize that the everyday behavior of ...
Preparing Smart Environments for Life in the Wild: Feature-space and Multi-view Heterogeneous Transfer Learning
With the ever-increasing abundance of sensing and computing devices embedded into our environments we have the opportunity to create personalized activity recognition ecosystems. Two key challenges must first be overcome, ...
INVESTIGATING THE HUMAN BEHAVIOR SIDE OF BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Society is becoming increasingly aware of the impact that our lifestyle preferences have on energy usage and the environment. In this dissertation, we look more closely at the impact that human behavior has on energy ...
STRUCTURAL PATTERN DISCOVERY IN DYNAMIC GRAPHS
Structural pattern discovery problems, which contain graph isomorphism as a sub-problem, are computationally very hard. The runtime of complete algorithms for discovering structural patterns such as frequent subgraphs and ...
