CPMetric: Deep Siamese Networks for Learning Distances Between Structured Preferences [article]

Andrea Loreggia, Nicholas Mattei, Francesca Rossi, K. Brent Venable
2019 arXiv   pre-print
CPDist is a novel metric learning approach based on the use of deep siamese networks which learn the Kendal Tau distance between partial orders that are induced by compact preference representations.  ...  We use the popular CP-net formalism to represent preferences and then leverage deep neural networks to learn a recently proposed metric function that is computationally hard to compute directly.  ...  Much of this comes from the fact that since KTD is a formal metric, there is only one CP-net that induces distance 1 and one CPnet to induce distance 0: a copy of the CP-net under test and the CP-net where  ...

Metric Learning for Value Alignment

Andrea Loreggia, Nicholas Mattei, Francesca Rossi, Kristen Brent Venable
2019 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper we investigate the use of CP-nets as a formalism for representing orderings over actions for AI systems.  ...  Hence, when working with preferences it is necessary to understand and compute a metric (distance) between preferences -especially if we encode both the user preferences and ethical systems in the same  ...  Informally, given two CP-nets, we wish to estimate the distance between their induced partial orders using a neural network.  ...

Exact Dominance Querying Algorithm on CP-nets

Guanlin Xin, Jinglei Liu
2016 International Journal of Database Theory and Application  
Fortunately, CP-nets is perfectly able to identify qualitative preference with conditional dependence relationship between these decision variables [5] .  ...  If we model this scenario by a CP-net, and by virtue of some reasoning techniques [2], we can easily help the buyer to determine which type of computer is the most preferred one.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.  ...

An Intuitive Dominant Test Algorithm of CP-nets Applied on Wireless Sensor Network

Liu Zhaowei, Zhang Chenghui, Liu Jinglei
2014 Sensors & Transducers  
Firstly, by constructing induced graph of CP-nets and studying its properties, we make a conclusion that the problem of strong dominant test on binary-valued CP-nets is single source shortest path problem  ...  But the algorithm and complexity of strong dominant test with respect to binary-valued structure CP-nets have not been solved, and few researchers address the application to other domain.  ...  We would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for valuable feedback on this work.  ...

Predicting the Cooling Potential of Different Shading Methods for Greenhouses in Arid Regions

Ahmed Abdel-Ghany, Ibrahim Al-Helal, Fahad Alkoaik, Abdullah Alsadon, Mohamed Shady, Abdullah Ibrahim
2019 Energies  
The results showed that the black net at 20-cm distance (BD) is desirable as it provides high CP with a reasonable solar radiation transmission.  ...  Based on these results, we developed correlations for predicting the CP for each shading method as a function of the transmitted solar radiation flux (Si). These correlations depend on Si.  ...  Therefore, several experiments with solar radiation analysis are required to optimize the distance between the net and the greenhouse cladding.  ...

A Comparative Analysis of the Center of Gravity and Center of Pressure Trajectory Path Lengths in Standing Posture: An Estimation of Active Stiffness

Olivier Caron, Thierry Gélat, Patrice Rougier, Jean-Pierre Blanchi
2000 Journal of Applied Biomechanics  
The center of foot pressure (CP) motions, representing the net neuromuscular control, was compared to the center of gravity (CG) motions, representing the net performance.  ...  This relationship was used to evaluate the CG motions based on the CP motions. Seven subjects stood still on a force plate with eyes open and eyes closed.  ...  increase the differences between the subjects' net neuromuscular control and net performance.  ...

Consider first the cumulative distribution of 1000-cps circuit net loss (CNL) for the three classes of calls in Fig. 22.  ...  Note that, on the average, exchange calls are a few decibels better than long distance calls. This is to be ex- pected, since loss tends to be a function of the physical length of the connections.  ... 

Heuristics for using CP-nets in utility-based negotiation without knowing utilities

Reyhan Aydoğan, Tim Baarslag, Koen V. Hindriks, Catholijn M. Jonker, Pınar Yolum
2014 Knowledge and Information Systems  
To validate this approach, the paper compares the performance of CP-nets with our heuristics with the performance of UCP-nets that are equipped with complete preference orderings.  ...  This paper proposes heuristics that enable the use of CP-nets in utility-based negotiations by generating total orderings.  ...  Some of the ideas presented in this paper initially appeared in [1] [2] [3] .  ...
