Many important problems can be cast as state-space problems. In this dissertation we study a general paradigm for solving state-space problems which we name Cluster-and-Conquer (C&C). Algorithms that follow the C&C paradigm use the concept of equivalent states to reduce the number of states...
This thesis presents Pathway Informed Analysis (PIA), a classification method for predicting disease states (diagnosis) from metabolic profile measurements that incorporates biological knowledge in the form of metabolic pathways. A metabolic pathway describes a set of chemical reactions that...
The reinforcement learning framework provides a simple way to study computational intelligence as the interaction between an agent and an environment. The goal of an agent is to accrue as much reward as possible by intelligently choosing actions given states. This problem of finding a policy that...
Serialization Management is the Best-Effort Hardware Transactional Memory (BE-HTM) counterpart to Software Transactional Memory (STM) Contention Management. A serialization manager uses non-speculative serialization to provide a forward-progress guarantee while simultaneously attempting to...
Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) in an unknown environment is a prerequisite to have a truly autonomous mobile robot. In this thesis, we focus on appearance-based visual SLAM, for which we develop a graph-based nearest-neighbor search algorithm to speed up bag-of-words (BoW) image...
Motion capture (MoCap) data has always been one of the most important components in the entertainment industry, being widely employed in animated movies and games. Given technological advancements in motion capture technologies, it has been successfully applied to other areas, such as surgical...
