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...
In this work, we present a unified, general approach to variance reduction in agent evaluation using machine learning to minimize variance. Evaluating an agent's performance in a stochastic setting is necessary for agent development, scientific evaluation, and competitions. Traditionally,...
Machine learning is a branch of artifi cial intelligence that employs a variety of statistical, probabilistic and optimization techniques that allows computers to “learn” from past examples and to detect hard-to-discern patterns from large, noisy or complex data sets. This capability is...
With increasing software size and complexity, corrective software maintenance has become a challenging process. When a failure is reported, it takes time and expertise for human operators to collect the right information and pinpoint the root cause. Typically, the operators are overloaded with...
Optimizing an objective function over convex sets is a key problem in many different machine learning models. One of the various kinds of well studied objective functions is the convex function, where any local minimum must be the global mini- mum over the domain. To find the optimal point that...
Breaking the wall of silence of trees Mining metabolomics to describe hybridization and predict performance in the Populus – Sphaerulina musiva pathosystemDownload
Stem canker diseases in poplars caused by the fungal pathogen Sphaerulina musiva Peck. remain some of the least understood forest diseases despite causing considerable damage, particularly in hybrid poplar plantations. S. musiva is endemic to eastern Canada in provinces including the Maritimes,...
Cash is the most important resource at the disposal of a construction company, and management of cash has a direct impact on long- and short-term company performance. Accurately predicting the amount of cash-flow expected from particular construction operations, however, remains challenging due...
