Affordable Uplift: Supervised Randomization in Controlled Experiments [article]

Johannes Haupt, Daniel Jacob, Robin M. Gubela, Stefan Lessmann
2019 arXiv   pre-print
An empirical Monte Carlo study shows that data collection under supervised randomization is cost-efficient, while downstream uplift models perform competitively.  ...  To increase the cost-efficiency of experimentation and facilitate frequent data collection and model training, we introduce supervised randomization.  ...  Treatment Control Rand. Control Treatment Supervised randomization Supervised randomization introduces heterogeneity in treatment probabilities into a randomized controlled experiment.  ...

The interplay of wind and uplift facilitates over-water flight in facultative soaring birds

2021 Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
To understand how these birds afford their flights over the open sea, we investigated the role of atmospheric conditions, specifically wind and uplift, in subsidizing over-water flight at a global scale  ...  Our findings suggest that, in addition to wind, uplift may play a key role in the energy seascape for bird migration that in turn determines strategies and associated costs for birds crossing ecological  ...  Year was added as a random intercept in the models to control for annual variations in ΔT.  ...

2020 Lancet psychiatry  
Evidence on the effectiveness of psychological interventions for women with common mental disorders (CMDs) who also experience intimate partner violence is scarce.  ...  We aimed to test our hypothesis that exposure to intimate partner violence would reduce intervention effectiveness for CMDs in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs).  ...  violence exposure in each intervention and control group, before a second random-effects meta-analysis of the difference between SMDs (dSMD) between inter vention and control groups.  ...

Generative View Synthesis: From Single-view Semantics to Novel-view Images [article]

Tewodros Habtegebrial, Varun Jampani, Orazio Gallo, Didier Stricker
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In contrast, we solve the semantics-to-image translation in concert with the estimation of the 3D layout of the scene, thus producing geometrically consistent novel views that preserve semantic structures  ...  We first lift the input 2D semantic map onto a 3D layered representation of the scene in feature space, thereby preserving the semantic labels of 3D geometric structures.  ...  The backbone is a Experiments Datasets. GVSNet is fully supervised and thus requires datasets providing two or more views for each scene.  ...
