Background The main two sorts of automatic gene annotation frameworks are ab initio and alignment-based, the latter splitting into two sub-groups. The first group is used for intra-species alignments, among which are successful ones with high specificity and speed. The other group contains more...
Background Gene conversion causes a non-reciprocal transfer of genetic information between similar sequences. Gene conversion can both homogenize genes and recruit point mutations thereby shaping the evolution of multigene families. In the rice genome, the large number of duplicated genes...
Heuristic search is a central problem in artificial intelligence. Among its defining properties is the use of a heuristic, a scalar function mapping pairs of states to an estimate of the actual distance between them. Accurate heuristics are generally correlated with faster query resolution and...
Recent real-time heuristic search algorithms have demonstrated outstanding performance in video game pathfinding. However, their applications have been thus far limited to that domain. We proceed with the aim of facilitating wider applications of real-time search by fostering a greater...
In this dissertation we discuss problems of search, inference and opponent modelling in imperfect information games in the context of creating a computer player for the popular german card game skat. In so doing, we demonstrate three major contributions to the field of artificial intelligence...
