Graph-theoretic conflict resolution with applications in wireless networks and protein docking

We consider graphs with nodes representing decisions and edges representing conflicts among two decisions. Nodes are further assigned weights indicating the reward of the corresponding decision. In such a graph, the Maximum Weighted Independent Set (MWIS) problem is to select a set of nodes, no two of which are adjacent, with the largest possible total weight. This is equivalent to selecting a "conflict-free" set of decisions with maximal reward. MWIS is NP-hard.

Semi-automatic road extraction combining Particle Filtering and Geographic Information Systems

The updating of road network databases is crucial to many Geographic Information System (GIS) applications like navigation, urban planning, as well as emergency and disaster management. The development of a robust methodology for automatic or semi-automatic road extraction and change detection as well as “discovery of paths” (in military theater, desert areas etc.) is essential. Such a methodology has to provide accurate and up-to-date results albeit using noisy and infrequent sensor data.

Intelen, Inc: a successful case of transforming Greek applied research to a world-class product

Intelen is a market leader and innovator in Smart Building Energy Analytics. It obtains real time energy use data from buildings (down to 1-2 second intervals) and provides real time advanced data analytics using a web based interface and specific cloud-based algorithms. Intelen uses proprietary technology to connect to buildings and is not dependent on the presence or type of utility smart meter installed. It then uses game mechanics principles to engage users in energy save initiatives and achieve a sustained reduction of energy use of 25-30% on average.

Οι δραστηριότητες του Εργαστηρίου Πολυμέσων-Υπερμέσων και Βιντεοτέχνης της Ανωτάτης Σχολής Καλών Τεχνών και προοπτικές συνεργασίας με το Ι.Π.&Τ.

Από την αρχή της δημιουργίας του εργαστηρίου Πολυμέσων-Υπερμέσων στην ΑΣΚΤ (www.medialab.asfa.gr) (2000) ο στόχος ήταν ένας επί ίσοις όροις διάλογος ανάμεσα στην Τέχνη, την Τεχνολογία και την επιστήμη. Σε συνεργασία με άτομα και Ακαδημαϊκά Ιδρύματα στην Ελλάδα και το εξωτερικό αναπτύχθηκε ένας γόνιμος διάλογος καθώς και τα πρώτα αποτελέσματα με τη μορφή τεχνολογικών εφαρμογών και καλλιτεχνικών έργων, σε ένα πειραματικό επίπεδο. Οι περιοχές έρευνας και εφαρμογών που απασχόλησαν το εργαστήριο μέχρι τώρα είναι:

Seminars-Workshops Research Methodology for PhD candidates at the Institute of Informatics Telecommunications

Τα σεμινάρια-εργαστήρια που διοργανώνονται με πρωτοβουλία του Ινστιτούτου Πληροφορικής και Τηλεπικοινωνιών (ΙΠ&Τ) στο ΕΚΕΦΕ "Δημόκριτος" για τη μεθοδολογία της έρευνας, ξεκινούν την Παρασκευή 5 Απριλίου, 15:00-17:00.

Visual Text Analytics: facilitating insight from text data

The world is accumulating exponentially increasing amounts of electronic text. Although search of large document corpora and the Web using keywords is well established and quite successful, it is only a preliminary step towards gaining useful insights from the available text. On the other hand, text mining and natural language processing techniques, although rapidly advancing in recent years, continue to have a non-negligible error rate. The output of text mining systems is generally not available in a form that is easy for the human user of the information to digest.
