1. Clustering feature vectors with mixed numerical and categorical attributes

R.K. Brouwer
Pages: 285 - 298
This paper describes a method for finding a fuzzy membership matrix in case of numerical and categorical features. The set of feature vectors with mixed features is mapped to a set of feature vectors with only real valued components with the condition that the new set of vectors has the same proximity...

2. Support Vector Regression with Interval-Input Interval-Output

Wensen An, Cecilio Angulo, Yanguang Sun
Pages: 299 - 303
Support vector machines (classification and regression) are powerful machine learning techniques for crisp data. In this paper, the problem is considered for interval data. Two methods to deal with the problem using support vector regression are proposed and two new methods for evaluating performance...

6. Use of computational intelligence for the prediction of vacancy migration energies in atomistic kinetic monte carlo simulations

Nicolas Castin, Lorenzo Malerba, Roberto Pinheiro Domingos
Pages: 340 - 352
procedures for the calculation of point-defect migration energies in Atomistic Kinetic Monte Carlo (AKMC) simulations, as functions of the Local Atomic Configuration (LAC). Two approaches are considered: the Cluster Expansion (CE) and the Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The first is found to be unpromising...
