Decision making system algorithm on menopause data set

Bacak, Hikmet Özge
Multiple-centered clustering method and decision making system algorithm on menopause data set depending on multiple-centered clustering are described in this study. This method consists of two stages. At the first stage, fuzzy C-means (FCM) clustering algorithm is applied on the data set under consideration with a high number of cluster centers. As the output of FCM, cluster centers and membership function values for each data member is calculated. At the second stage, original cluster centers obtained in the first stage are merged till the new numbers of clusters are reached. Merging process relies upon a “similarity measure” between clusters defined in the thesis. During the merging process, the cluster center coordinates do not change but the data members in these clusters are merged in a new cluster. As the output of this method, therefore, one obtains clusters which include many cluster centers. In the final part of this study, an application of the clustering algorithms – including the multiple centered clustering method – a decision making system is constructed using a special data on menopause treatment. The decisions are based on the clusterings created by the algorithms already discussed in the previous chapters of the thesis. A verification of the decision making system / v decision aid system is done by a team of experts from the Department of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Hacettepe University under the guidance of Prof. Sinan Beksaç.


Identification of functionally orthologous protein groups in different species based on protein network alignment
Yaveroğlu, Ömer Nebil; Can, Tolga; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this study, an algorithm named ClustOrth is proposed for determining and matching functionally orthologous protein clusters in different species. The algorithm requires protein interaction networks of the organisms to be compared and GO terms of the proteins in these interaction networks as prior information. After determining the functionally related protein groups using the Repeated Random Walks algorithm, the method maps the identified protein groups according to the similarity metric defined. In orde...
Simulated FMRI toolbox
Türkay, Kemal Doğuş; Gökçay, Didem; Department of Medical Informatics (2009)
In this thesis a simulated fMRI toolbox is developed in order to generate simulated data to compare and benchmark different functional magnetic resonance image analysis methods. This toolbox is capable of loading a high resolution anatomic brain volume, generating 4D fMRI data in the same data space with the anatomic image, and allowing the user to create block and event-related design paradigms. Common fMRI artifacts such as scanner drift, cardiac pulsation, habituation and task related or spontaneous head...
Simplification in graph sketching: a comparison of rule based graph generation and human sketching
Kerimoğlu, Ceren; Acartürk, Cengiz; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2015)
This study aims to find common levels of graph simplification between a rule based method and humans. A graph simplification method was implemented based on a grammatical set of rules. (Kulik & Egenhofer, 2003) Also an experiment was conducted with human participants. In the experiment, the subjects were asked to simplify a set of line graphs. The outputs of the graph simplification algorithm were compared with the human sketches. The results reveal a systematic relationship between the prediction of the ru...
An fMRI segmentation method under markov random fields for brain decoding
Aksan, Emre; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
In this study, a specially tailored segmentation method for partitioning the fMRI data into a set of "homogenous" regions with respect to a predefined cost function is proposed. The proposed method, referred as f-MRF, employs univariate and multivariate fMRI data analysis techniques under Markov Random Fields to estimate the segments by resolving a mixture density. The univariate approach helps identifying activation pattern of a voxel independently from other voxels. In order to capture local interactions ...
Design of attitude estimation algorithms for inertial sensors only measurement scenarios
Candan, Batu; Söken, Halil Ersin; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-3-24)
This thesis proposes four novel robust Kalman filter algorithms for attitude estimation using only the measurements of an inertial measurement unit. Efficiency and optimality of the Kalman filter based attitude filters are correlated with appropriate tuning of the covariance matrices. Manual tuning process is a difficult and time-consuming task. Specifically, the inertial measurement unit-only attitude estimation filters are prone to the external accelerations unless their covariances are adapted to gain ro...
