Information Search Patterns in E-Commerce Product Comparison Services
Fiona Fui-Hoon Nah, Weiyin Hong, Liqiang Chen, Hong-Hee Lee.
To facilitate product selection and purchase decisions on e-commerce Web sites, the presentation of product information is very important. In this research, the authors study how disposition styles influence users’ search patterns in product comparison services of e-commerce Web sites. The results show...
Antecedents of the Closeness of Human-Avatar Relationships in a Virtual World
Yi Zhao, Weiquan Wang, Yan Zhu.
Virtual worlds (e.g., Second Life), where users interact and form relationships with other users’ virtual identities represented by avatars (i.e., human-avatar relationships), are increasingly influential in today’s businesses and society. Nevertheless, the sustainability and impact of virtual worlds...
Fuzzy Database Modeling: An Overview and New Definitions
Angélica Urrutia, José Galindo.
In this chapter the authors present an overview of different fuzzy database modeling definitions by different authors. They highlight the FuzzyEER model, which is an extension of an EER model incorporating fuzzy semantics and notation. FuzzyEER is probably the most complete modeling tool. It has...
A Quick Presentation of Evolutionary Computation
Evolutionary computation is an old field of computer science, that started in the 1960s nearly simultaneously in different parts of the world. It is an optimization technique that mimics the principles of Darwinian evolution in order to find good solutions to intractable problems faster than a random...
Evolutionary Algorithms in Supervision of Error-Free Control
Bohumil Sulc, David Klimanek.
Evolutionary algorithms are well known as optimization techniques, suitable for solving various kinds of problems (Ruano, 2005). The new application of evolutionary algorithms represents their use in the detection of biased control loop functions caused by controlled variable sensor discredibility...
Soft Computing Techniques in Spatial Databases
Spatial database systems and geographical information systems are currently only able to support geographical applications that deal with only crisp spatial objects, that is, objects whose extent, shape, and boundary are precisely determined. Examples are land parcels, school districts, and state...
Type-2 Fuzzy Interface for Artificial Neural Network
Priti Srinivas Sajja.
Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based systems are bio-inspired mechanisms for intelligent decision support with capabilities to learn generalized knowledge from the large amount of data and offers high degree of self-learning. However, the knowledge in such ANN system is stored in the generalized...
A Combined GA-Fuzzy Classification System for Mining Gene Expression Databases
Gerald Schaefer, Tomoharu Nakashima.
Microarray studies and gene expression analysis have received significant attention over the last few years and provide many promising avenues towards the understanding of fundamental questions in biology and medicine. In this chapter, the authors show that a combined GA-fuzzy classification system can...
Integrity Constraints Checking in a Distributed Database
Preserving the accuracy and the integrity of information in a database is extremely important for the organization that is maintaining that database. Such an organization is likely to rely heavily upon that accuracy. Applications that consult and use the database expect a warranty that the database is...
Soft Computing Techniques in Content-Based Multimedia Information Retrieval
G. Castellano, A. M. Fanelli, M. A. Torsello.
Due to the diffusion of multimedia databases and new ways of communication, there is an urgent need for developing more effective search systems capable of retrieving information by specifying directly in user queries elements strictly related to the multimedia content. This is the main rationale...
