2020 IEEE Access  
The second experiment tested the MPAMFO for a real-world application, such as CT images of COVID-19. Therefore, thirteen CT images were used to test the performance of MPAMFO.  ...  The proposed approach is called MPAMFO, in which, the MFO is utilized as a local search method for MPA to avoid trapping at local optima.  ...  Moreover, to implement MPAMFO in a real-world application, we test it to segment chest CT images of COVID-19 [53] .  ...

A genetic algorithm approach for a constrained employee scheduling problem as applied to employees at mall type shops

Adrian Brezulianu, Monica Fira, Lucian Fira
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 International Conference on Hybrid Information Technology - ICHIT '09  
In this application of artificial intelligence to a real-world problem, the constrained scheduling of employee resourcing for a mall type shop is solved by means of a genetic algorithm.  ...  Chromosomes encode a one-week schedule and a constraint matrix handles all requirements for the population.  ...  The employee scheduling, or more specific, the shift scheduling is defined as a problem of placing resources (employees) into slots in a pattern, in such way to accomplish given constraints.  ...

2000 Proceedings of the 8th ACM SIGSOFT international symposium on Foundations of software engineering twenty-first century applications - SIGSOFT '00/FSE-8  
Process scheduling is then automatically derived from these invariants. We illustrate the advantages of this approach by applying it to a real-world example.  ...  We present the universe model, a new approach to concurrency management that isolates concurrency concerns and represents them in the modular interface of a component.  ...  If the scheduler were to not consider the possibility, a correct program could still exhibit starvation problems.  ...

Automated University Timetabling: The State of the Art

E. Burke
1997 Computer journal  
Scheduling lectures or exams for universities is a large and complex task.  ...  This paper briefly looks at various popular techniques and recent work on both exam and course scheduling around the world, and should serve as an introduction to the field.  ...  For example, a university may allow exams to be scheduled at any time between 09:30 and 12:30, and 13:30 and 18:00.  ...

2017 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition Proceedings   unpublished
Hassan Rajaei is a professor of computer science at Bowling Green State University, Ohio.  ...  Teaching simulation techniques may require creativity in assigning problems to students. Real word examples often excite students and motivate them focusing on their learning objectives.  ...  Albeit simple and generic models can teach students the basics, the usability of what they learned comes often from real world examples.  ...
