forecasting wind-speed at Findhorn, Scotland, 1-24hrs in advance

David Corne
Within the ORIGIN project, we are developing software technology that harvests freely available data sources to provide accurate site-specific forecasts of weather variables at hourly intervals, focussing at between one and 24 hours ahead. These are important to help forecast the availability of solar and wind energy on the same timescale (as well as important for many other potential applications). This brief slideset shows our accuracy in predicting wind-speed at Findhorn, Northern Scotland (one of...

On the performance of block matching for stereovision

Gabriele Facciolo & Antoni Buades
Presented at the 2014 SIAM Conference on Imaging Science, Mini-Symposium: “High Precision Stereo Vision”. May 12-14 2014, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong. Motivated by photogrammetric applications we consider two issues of non-dense block-matching for stereovision. Correctly computing disparities at places where the pronto-parallel hypothesis is invalid (like discontinuities and slanted surfaces) and detecting invalid or ambiguous matches. We explore the use of oriented windows in order to deal with the first issue. While, to...

Genetic diversity as a parameter for managing agroforestry systems

Aristotelis C. Papageorgiou
This is a pdf file of a lecture held during the Summer School "Mediterranean Agroforestry and its role in the
Present Environmental Challenges", Athens, Greece, 4 – 15 July 2011. This lecture is at graduate level, prepared for a non-genetic audience. For this reason, a basic introduction in population genetics and evolution is done in the first part. The second part includes suggestions for management and conservation guidelines for agroforestry systems. This file contains some useful...

Controllo dell'ortografia dei nomi delle strade

Daniele Forsi
Diversi approcci possono essere usati per fare controlli sulla correttezza ortografica dei nomi delle strade a partire dalla semplice ispezione visiva dei dati, anche con l'aiuto di Tagwatch, passando dal pattern matching di Postgresql, per finire al correttore ortografico aspell. Considerazioni sull'efficienza e sull'efficacia dei vari metodi e cenni ai programmi usati.

Genetic implications of forest management in the Mediterranean

Aristotelis C. Papageorgiou
Mediterranean forests are characterized by high complexity and biological richness at all levels. Genetic diversity of Mediterranean forest species has been found to be higher than the one of central and northern Europe. It is important for the maintenance of forest cover and the adaptation of forests under adverse conditions towards environmental change. Genetic diversity in the Mediterranean forests has been shaped by the climatic and the geographical history of the region. However, the most...

Navigating scientific resources using wiki-based resources

Antony Williams, Valery Tkachenko, Alexey Pshenichnov, Sean Ekins & Alex Clark
There is an overwhelming number of new resources for chemistry that would likely benefit both librarians and students in terms of improving access to data and information. While commercial solutions provided by an institution may be the primary resources there is now an enormous range of online tools, databases, resources, apps for mobile devices and, increasingly, wikis. This presentation will provide an overview of how wiki-based resources for scientists are developing and will introduce a...

IPOL: Image Processing On Line

Gabriele Facciolo & Nicolas Limare
Presented at the Oxford Future of Science conference "Rigour and Openness in 21st Century Science", 2013-04-11, Oxford, UK It’s clear that software is important in modern science. It’s used to SOLVE real scientific problems in a variety of fields ranging from physics, to medicine and economics. However research software is not like general purpose equipment (like a telescopes or compilers). Research software is usually made by scientist for scientists, tailored to a concrete experimental process....

Analysis of a Variational Framework for Exemplar Based Image Inpainting

Gabriele Facciolo, Pablo Arias & Vicent Caselles
Presented at the 2012 SIAM Conference on Imaging Science, Mini-Symposium: “Recent Advances in Patch-based Image Processing”. May 20-22 2012, Philadelphia, PA, USA. We discuss a variational framework for exemplar based image inpainting, in which both the reconstructed image u and the non-local weights w are treated as variables and updated using the variational formulation. This approach permits to draw relations with some existing inpainting schemes, in addition to leading to novel ones. We carry out...

Dispensing Processes Profoundly Impact Biological Assays and Computational and Statistical Analyses

Antony Williams, Sean Ekins & Joe Olechno
Dispensing processes profoundly influence estimates of biological activity of compounds.In this study using published inhibitor data for the tyrosine kinase EphB4, we show that IC50 values obtained via disposable tip-based serial dilution and dispensing versus acoustic dispensing differ by orders of magnitude with no correlationor ranking of datasets. Importantly, the computed EphB4 pharmacophores derived from this data differ for each dataset. Acoustic dispensing correctly highlights multiple hydrophobic features in the pharmacophore and correlates with calculated...

The almost impossible worlds in quantum information and their influence on reality

A state or world with converging to zero, but nonzero probability, can be designated as an almost impossible one unlike those with exactly zero probability, which are quite impossible Thus a coherent superposition of those almost impossible states or an ensemble of those almost impossible worlds can have some nonzero probability
