ELA: an automated statistical fault localization technique
Bayraktar, Özkan; Betin Can, Aysu; Department of Information Systems (2015)
Software debugging consists of locating software faults, finding their causes, and fixing them. Among all these activities, the fault localization is the most difficult one and requires manual effort. Although there are several studies on automating this process, their effectiveness has not yet reached at a desired level. In this dissertation, we propose a fault localization framework that introduces a new fault localization metric called Ela, three test suite reduction strategies to improve the effectivene...
IoT-Based Real-Time updating multi-layered learning system applied for a special care context during COVID-19
Erişen, Serdar (2022-12-01)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for increased research, this study aimed to develop a real-time learning system to provide infection control for residential special care contexts and in doing so, explored different crowdsourcing technologies, spatial usages, and data processing methods within the scope of smart health-care systems and environments. Experiments were conducted in the selected special care indoor environment, which was fitted with sensors and Internet of Things devices, from ...
EFL student and instructor perceptions of pair and group work speaking activities: a case study at a state university in Turkey
İlkyaz Akın, İnci Nur; Savaş, Perihan; Department of English Literature (2018)
The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions of English preparatory school students and their language instructors of the implication of pair and group work speaking activities in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classes. The study was conducted as a case study with 496 English as a foreign language (EFL) students and nine instructors of English language in the preparatory school of a state university in Ankara, Turkey. The data for this study were collected through a questionnaire administer...
EMDD-RL: faster subgoal identification with diverse density in reinforcement learning
Sunel, Saim; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2021-1-15)
Diverse Density (DD) algorithm is a well-known multiple instance learning method, also known to be effective to automatically identify sub-goals and improve Reinforcement Learning (RL). Expectation-Maximization Diverse Density (EMDD) improves DD in terms of both speed and accuracy. This study adapts EMDD to automatically identify subgoals for RL which is shown to perform significantly faster (3 to 10 times) than its predecessor, without sacrificing solution quality. The performance of the proposed method na...
SPT-based probabilistic and deterministic assessment of seismic soil liquefaction triggering hazard
Çetin, Kemal Önder; Kayen, Robert E.; Moss, Robb E. S.; Bilge, Habib Tolga; Ilgaç, Makbule (Elsevier BV, 2018-12-01)
This study serves as an update to the Cetin et al. (2000, 2004) [1,2] databases and presents new liquefaction triggering curves. Compared with these studies from over a decade ago, the resulting new Standard Penetration Test (SPT)-based triggering curves have shifted to slightly higher CSR-levels for a given N-1,N-60,N-cs for values of N-1,N-60,N-cs greater than 15 blows/ft, but the correlation curves remain essentially unchanged at N-1,N-60,N-cs values less than 15 blows/ft. This paper addresses the improv...
