An Investigation into the Effectiveness of White-Box T-way Testing

Arpita Dutta, Anwesha Patel, Rajib Mall
2019 IET Software  
The authors empirically investigate the effectiveness of MC/DC testing vis-à-vis white-box pairwise, 3-way and 4-way testing.  ...  T-way testing is another prominent testing technique that helps to limit the combinatorial explosion of black-box test cases.  ...  In this paper, we compared the effectiveness of MC/DC test cases with white-box designed pairwise, 3-way and 4-way test cases.  ...

Niels Rueegger
2019 Environments  
Box exteriors were black or white and plywood boxes comprised vents.  ...  At the study site, the tested black boxes are considered most thermally suitable for bats during average summer conditions. However, during temperature extremes black boxes likely become too hot.  ...  The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript or in the decision to publish the results.  ...

Testing the potential of 50 kHz rat calls as a species-specific rat attractant

Nicola B. Davidson, Jane L. Hurst, Cheryl S. Rosenfeld
2019 PLoS ONE  
Sounds of rat movement and white noise acted as control treatments, with each sound tested against a silent control in the opposite side of the arena.  ...  When sound cues were played above an empty bait box, rats were attracted to spend time close to 50 kHz rat calls, climbing on top of boxes, regardless of the sex of subject or caller.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank John Waters, Rachel Spencer, Joshua Beeston, Amanda Davidson and Dr Richard Humphries for technical support and other members of the Mammalian Behaviour and Evolution Group for  ...

Comparison of Model Complexities in Optimal Control Tested in a Real Thermally Activated Building System

Javier Arroyo, Fred Spiessens, Lieve Helsen
2022 Buildings  
A real thermally activated test building is used to compare the white-, grey-, and black-box modeling paradigms in prediction and control performance.  ...  It is also observed that most of the complexity of the physics-based model arises from the building envelope while this part of the building is the most sensitive to weather forecast uncertainty.  ...  White-box model of the Vliet building test room and heating system.

The effect of stimulus height on visual discrimination in horses1

C. A. Hall, H. J. Cassaday, A. M. Derrington
2003 Journal of Animal Science  
20 This study investigated the effect of stimulus height on the ability of horses to learn a simple visual discrimination task.  ...  Eight horses were trained to perform a two-choice black/white discrimination with stimuli presented at one of two heights: at ground level or at a height of 70cm from the ground.  ...  Two-way mixed analyses of variance were conducted with the within subjects factor of height (of stimulus) and the between subjects factor of P o s t -P r i n t stimulus (black or white designated correct  ...

MedAttacker: Exploring Black-Box Adversarial Attacks on Risk Prediction Models in Healthcare [article]

Muchao Ye and Junyu Luo and Guanjie Zheng and Cao Xiao and Ting Wang and Fenglong Ma
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To fill this gap, we propose the first black-box adversarial attack method against health risk prediction models named MedAttacker to investigate their vulnerability.  ...  To evaluate their robustness, existing research conducts adversarial attacks in the white/gray-box setting where model parameters are accessible.  ...  Comparison with White-box Attack. To evaluate the effectiveness of black-box adversarial attacks on EHRs, we compare the attack results between black-box adversarial attacks and white-box ones.  ...
