A novel rank-based classifier combination scheme for speaker identification

Altincay, H
Demirekler, Mübeccel
In this paper, we propose a novel rank-based classifier combination scheme under uncertainty for speaker identification (SI). The combination is based on a heuristic method that uses Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence under some conditions. The method is based on the extraction of first and R-th level ranking statistics. Using these statistics, the pat tern classes are clustered into model sets where the classes in these sets share set specific properties. Some of these model sets are used to reflect the strengths and weaknesses where some others carr class dependent ranking statistics of the corresponding classifier. The experiments conducted on the Polycost database have shown that the proposed approach is more effective compared to some other rank-based combination schemes.


A heuristic algorithm for hierarchical representation of form documents
Duygulu, P; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Dincel, E (1998-08-20)
In this paper our aim is to develop a logical representation for form documents. We propose a hierarchical structure to represent the logical layout of a form by using lines. The approach is top-down and no domain knowledge such as the preprinted data or filled-in data is used. Logically same but physically different forms are associated to the same hierarchical tree. This representation can handle geometrical modifications and slight variations.(1).
A Computerized Method for Delay Risk Assessment Based on Fuzzy Set Theory using MS Project (TM)
BUDAYAN, Cenk; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Ghaziani, Aydin (2018-08-01)
In this paper, we present a computerized method as an add-in to MS Project (TM) for risk identification and estimation of delay. A delay analysis ontology is incorporated so that the users can identify causes of delay at the activity level and assess frequency and impact of risks using their previous experience, expertise and judgement. Testing and validation findings demonstrate that the software is easy to use and gives reliable results. Decision-makers can use this software during risk identification and...
A statistical unified framework for rank-based multiple classifier decision combination
Saranlı, Afşar (2001-04-01)
This study presents a theoretical investigation of the rank-based multiple classifier decision combination problem, with the aim of providing a unified framework to understand a variety of such systems. The combination of the decisions of more than one classifiers with the aim of improving overall system performance is a concept of general interest in pattern recognition, as a viable alternative to designing a single sophisticated classifier. The problem of combining the classifier decisions in the raw form...
An expert system for the differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases
Guvenir, HA; Emeksiz, N (2000-01-01)
This paper presents an expert system for differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases incorporating decisions made by three classification algorithms: nearest neighbor classifier, naive Bayesian classifier and voting feature intervals-5. This tool enables doctors to differentiate six types of erythemato-squamous diseases using clinical and histopathological parameters obtained from a patient. The program also gives explanations for the classifications of each classifier. The patient records are al...
A modified algorithm for peer-to-peer security
Akleylek, Sedat; Emmungil, Levent; NURİYEV, URFAT (2007-01-01)
In this paper we present the steganographic approach to peer-to-peer systems with a modified algorithm. This gives the user a very high level of protection against being compelled to disclose its contents. Even the realization of the quantum computer cannot solve NP-hard problem in a polynomial time, a modified algorithm with steganographic use depending on Knapsack problem may make peer-to-peer systems secure.
