Aggregated outputs by linear models: An application on marine litter beaching prediction
(Information Sciences, 20190101)In regression, a predictive model which is able to anticipate the output of a new case is learnt from a set of previous examples. The output or response value of these examples used for model training is known. When learning ... 
Hybridizing Cartesian Genetic Programming and Harmony Search for Adaptive Feature Construction in Supervised Learning Problems
(Applied Soft Computing, 20170228)The advent of the socalled Big Data paradigm has motivated a flurry of research aimed at enhancing machine learning models by following very di verse approaches. In this context this work focuses on the automatic con ... 
On the relevance of preprocessing in predictive maintenance for dynamic systems
(Predictive Maintenance in Dynamic Systems, 2018)The complexity involved in the process of realtime datadriven monitoring dynamic systems for predicted maintenance is usually huge. With more or less indepth any datadriven approach is sensitive to data preprocessing, ... 
Calibration Model Maintenance in Melamine Resin Production: Integrating Drift Detection, Smart Sample Selection and Model Adaptation
(Analytica Chimica Acta, 2018)The physicochemical properties of Melamine Formaldehyde (MF) based thermosets are largely influenced by the degree of polymerization (DP) in the underlying resin. Online supervision of the turbidity point by means of ... 
Spatiotemporal information coupling in network navigation
(IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, 201812)Network navigation, encompassing both spatial and temporal cooperation to locate mobile agents, is a key enabler for numerous emerging locationbased applications. In such cooperative networks, the positional information ... 
Crowd Learning with Candidate Labeling: an EMbased Solution
(Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence, 20180927)Crowdsourcing is widely used nowadays in machine learning for data labeling. Although in the traditional case annotators are asked to provide a single label for each instance, novel approaches allow annotators, in case ... 
A review on distance based time series classification
