Time Series Classifier Recommendation by a MetaLearning Approach
(20220326)This work addresses time series classifier recommendation for the first time in the literature by considering several recommendation forms or metatargets: classifier accuracies, complete ranking, topM ranking, best set ... 
Analysis of Dominant Classes in Universal Adversarial Perturbations
(2022)The reasons why Deep Neural Networks are susceptible to being fooled by adversarial examples remains an open discussion. Indeed, many differ ent strategies can be employed to efficiently generate adversarial attacks, some ... 
Generalized Maximum Entropy for Supervised Classification
(202204)The maximum entropy principle advocates to evaluate events’ probabilities using a distribution that maximizes entropy among those that satisfy certain expectations’ constraints. Such principle can be generalized for ... 
Kmeans for Evolving Data Streams
(20210101)Nowadays, streaming data analysis has become a relevant area of research in machine learning. Most of the data streams available are unlabeled, and thus it is necessary to develop specific clustering techniques that take ... 
Derivation of a CostSensitive COVID19 Mortality Risk Indicator Using a Multistart Framework
(20220114)The overall global death rate for COVID19 patients has escalated to 2.13% after more than a year of worldwide spread. Despite strong research on the infection pathogenesis, the molecular mechanisms involved in a fatal ... 
A SemiSupervised Learning Approach for Ranging Error Mitigation Based on UWB Waveform
(20211230)Localization systems based on ultrawide band (UWB) measurements can have unsatisfactory performance in harsh environments due to the presence of nonlineofsight (NLOS) errors. Learningbased methods for error ... 
Deep GEMbased network for weakly supervised UWB ranging error mitigation
(20211230)Ultrawideband (UWB)based techniques, while becoming mainstream approaches for highaccurate positioning, tend to be challenged by ranging bias in harsh environments. The emerging learningbased methods for error ...
