Instead of using a dedicated backup power source to fulfill the energy needs of buildings during contingencies, a reward mechanism for providing reliability-as-a-service (RaaS) via electric vehicles (EVs) is proposed in this study. The proposed positive reward mechanism comprises an upfront...
Measurement of construction labor productivity involves various subjective factors (e.g., motivation, stress, and fatigue). Most measurement approaches for subjective factors in productivity applications require manual data collection (e.g., questionnaires, interviews, and observations);...
Software readability is a property that influences how easily a given piece of code can be read and understood. Since readability can affect maintainability, quality, etc., programmers are very concerned about the readability of code. If automatic readability checkers could be built, they could...
Across postsecondary settings, boredom is a common emotion and can be harmful for achievement striving and motivation. We draw on two theories—Control Value Theory (CVT) and the Components Process Model of Emotions (CPM)—which cover important dimensions of boredom experienced by students. Our...
A call to action: How Knowledge Resource Service (KRS) is supporting Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) response to the COVID-19 pandemicDownload
This presentation discusses Knowledge Resource Service’s (KRS) role in providing rapid COVID-19 research support for Alberta Health Services. We will go through our process of addressing COVID-19 requests: the difficulty of searching for new yet rapidly developing information, performing quality...
This study examined the safety effects of the City of Edmonton’s mobile enforcement program. Four years of city-wide monthly collision data, enforcement statistics, and employment rate data was incorporated in a generalized linear Poisson model. It was found that the estimations of the...
The overlap of vowel categories is a fairly common linguistic phenomenon. But, it can be difficult to judge whether two supposedly distinct vowel categories have merged or not. One tool that a researcher may use is a quantification of the overlap based on acoustic properties of recorded vowel...
The present paper investigates the effect of different inputs on the accuracy of a forced alignment tool built using deep neural networks. Both raw audio samples and Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients were compared as network inputs. A set of experiments were performed using the TIMIT speech...
