An expert system for the differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases

Guvenir, HA
Emeksiz, N
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 also maintained in a database for further references.


A unified view of rank-based decision combination
Saranlı, Afşar (2000-09-07)
This study presents a theoretical investigation of the rank-based multiple classifier decision problem for closed-set pattern classification. The case with classifier raw outputs in the form of candidate class rankings is considered and formulated as a discrete optimization problem with the objective function being the total probability of correct decision. The problem has a global optimum solution but is of prohibitive dimensionality. We present a partitioning formalism under which this dimensionality can ...
A new likelihood approach to autonomous multiple model estimation
Söken, Halil Ersin (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
This paper presents an autonomous multiple model (AMM) estimation algorithm for hybrid systems with sudden changes in their parameters. Estimates of Kalman filters (KFs) that are tuned and employed for different system modes are merged based on a newly defined likelihood function without any necessity for filter interaction. The proposed likelihood function is composed of two measures, the filter agility measure and the steady-state error measure. These measures are derived based on filter adaptation rules....
An algorithm to analyze stability of gene-expression patterns
Gebert, J; Latsch, M; Pickl, SW; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Wunschiers, R (Elsevier BV, 2006-05-01)
Many problems in the field of computational biology consist of the analysis of so-called gene-expression data. The successful application of approximation and optimization techniques, dynamical systems, algorithms and the utilization of the underlying combinatorial structures lead to a better understanding in that field. For the concrete example of gene-expression data we extend an algorithm, which exploits discrete information. This is lying in extremal points of polyhedra, which grow step by step, up to a...
A Trie-structured Bayesian Model for Unsupervised Morphological Segmentation
Kurfalı, Murathan; Ustun, Ahmet; CAN BUĞLALILAR, BURCU (2017-04-23)
In this paper, we introduce a trie-structured Bayesian model for unsupervised morphological segmentation. We adopt prior information from different sources in the model. We use neural word embeddings to discover words that are morphologically derived from each other and thereby that are semantically similar. We use letter successor variety counts obtained from tries that are built by neural word embeddings. Our results show that using different information sources such as neural word embeddings and letter s...
A Study of the Classification of Low-Dimensional Data with Supervised Manifold Learning
Vural, Elif (2018-01-01)
Supervised manifold learning methods learn data representations by preserving the geometric structure of data while enhancing the separation between data samples from different classes. In this work, we propose a theoretical study of supervised manifold learning for classification. We consider nonlinear dimensionality reduction algorithms that yield linearly separable embeddings of training data and present generalization bounds for this type of algorithms. A necessary condition for satisfactory generalizat...
