Improving Sleep-Wake Behaviors Using Mobile App Gamification
İlhan, Ezgi; Şener Pedgley, Bahar; Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin (2022-01-01)
Gamification can be used to encourage people to perform challenging tasks. Gamification can also be useful in altering unwanted habits and enhancing subjective well-being. Everyday health is affected by sleep-wake habits to a significant extent. Therefore, we can come across gamified products and mobile applications related to subjective well-being and sleep/wake activities. This paper presents a study investigating whether gamification can be used to affect sleep-wake behaviors in a positive way. The paper...
Improving Oil-Rate Estimate in Capacitance/Resistance Modeling Using the Y-Function Method for Reservoirs Under Waterflood
Temizel, Cenk; Artun, Emre; Yang, Zhengming (Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), 2019-08-01)
Capacitance/resistance modeling (CRM) is an empirical waterflood modeling technique based on the signal correlations between injection rates and gross production rates. CRM can satisfactorily estimate the gross (liquid) production rate. The oil-production-rate forecast is based on fitting the empirical oil fractional-flow model, the Leverett (1941) oil fractional-flow model, or the Koval (1963) model to the historical production data. We observed that the oil-production-rate forecast in this approach is les...
Learning to Navigate Endoscopic Capsule Robots
Turan, Mehmet; Almalioglu, Yasin; Gilbert, Hunter B.; Mahmood, Faisal; Durr, Nicholas J.; Araujo, Helder; Sari, Alp Eren; Ajay, Anurag; Sitti, Metin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-07-01)
Deep reinforcement learning (DRL) techniques have been successful in several domains, such as physical simulations, computer games, and simulated robotic tasks, yet the transfer of these successful learning concepts from simulations into the real world scenarios remains still a challenge. In this letter, a DRL approach is proposed to learn the continuous control of a magnetically actuated soft capsule endoscope (MASCE). Proposed controller approach can alleviate the need for tedious modeling of complex and ...
Using cosmic-ray neutron probes in validating satellite soil moisture products and land surface models
Duygu, Mustafa Berk; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal (MDPI AG, 2019-01-01)
Soil moisture content is one of the most important parameters of hydrological studies. Cosmic-ray neutron sensing is a promising proximal soil moisture sensing technique at intermediate scale and high temporal resolution. In this study, we validate satellite soil moisture products for the period of March 2015 and December 2018 by using several existing Cosmic Ray Neutron Probe (CRNP) stations of the COSMOS database and a CRNP station that was installed in the south part of Turkey in October 2016. Soil moist...
Using technology in preventing and remedying seventh grade students' misconceptions in forming and solving linear equations
Erek, Görkem; Erbaş, Ayhan Kürşat; Department of Educational Sciences (2008)
The purposes of this study was to investigate seventh-grade students’ misconceptions related to forming and solving equations and examine the role of technology use in preventing and remedying these misconceptions. A group of 18 seventh grade students was given a diagnostic test before they started the equations unit to determine their misconceptions related to the topic. Students studied equations for 6 weeks and half of the instruction took place in the computer lab where they used various electronic mani...
