Due to the speedy progression of vehicles technology, the assessment of car safety has become an increasing issue in the latest decade. To reflect the technology of car safety, a great diversity of new car assessment programme has been developed for the purpose of more ensuring the occupant safety as well as pedestrian safety. The Euro New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) aims to encourage the significant safety improvement to new car design, and a strict and complete NCAP can either enhancedoi:10.26821/ijsrc.9.2.2021.9211 fatcat:wjhfmywwqfcfzmvipdoeh2qlwq

Regional population forecast and analysis is of essence to urban and regional planning, and a well-designed plan can effectively construct a sound national infrastructure and stabilize positive population growth. Traditionally, either urban or regional planning relies on the opinions of demographers in terms of how the population of a city or a region will grow. Multi-regional population forecast is currently possible, carried out mainly on the basis of the Interregional Cohort-Component model.doi:10.3390/e23060656 pmid:34073825 fatcat:hfg5nv4bhrbajmlpbo2j34cegm

Hence, the only drawback for cohort-component type population forecasting is allowing the analyst to specify the demographic rates of the future, and it goes without saying that this tends to introduce a biased result in forecasting accuracy. To effectively avoid this problem, this work proposes a machine learning-based method to forecast multi-regional population growth objectively. Thus, this work, drawing upon the newly developed machine learning technology, attempts to analyze and forecast the population growth of major cities in Taiwan. By effectively using the advantage of the XGBoost algorithm, the evaluation of feature importance and the forecast of multi-regional population growth between the present and the near future can be observed objectively, and it can further provide an objective reference to the urban planning of regional population.
In deep learning, optimization plays a vital role. By focusing on image classification, this work investigates the pros and cons of the widely used optimizers, and proposes a new optimizer: Perturbated Unit Gradient Descent (PUGD) algorithm with extending normalized gradient operation in tensor within perturbation to update in unit space. Via a set of experiments and analyses, we show that PUGD is locally bounded updating, which means the updating from time to time is controlled.

From a series of rigorous experiments, PUGD helps models to gain a state-of-the-art Top-1 accuracy in Tiny ImageNet and competitive performances in CIFAR- 10, 100. We open-source our code at link: https://github.com/hanktseng131415go/PUGD.
Membrane distillation (MD) is one of the emerging thermal driven membrane separation processes in wastewater treatment attributed to its lower energy requirement and able to couple with waste heat relative to pressure driven process.

The permeate flux performance in the range of 67 to 79 kg/m2h with the rejectionrate of more than 98.80 % suggested that the PI membrane possesses the potential to be applied in the industrial wastewater treatment in nickel removal.
US beef imports in Taiwan is always a popular issue of how to make an optimal negotiation under a complete trade-off. A potential 'non-obvious' solution or creative compromise based on the integrative bargaining is that Taiwan government may imports conditional U.S. beef (boneless beef and cow internal organs, except beef mince), and the U.S. government may offer the visa free of the U.S. entering (after one year) and provide the advanced military procurement (more advanced military equipment) in the next military procurement.doi:10.26821/ijsrc.9.4.2021.9417 fatcat:4thb4uaehvah3mq3ibmcroukne
With the high industrialization in a rapid pace, optimizing the production and distribution of energy has become a popular issue in this century. As for the energy planning, the analysis of supply usually starts from the perspective of the supplier that takes into account production at the minimum cost while meeting demand. On the other hand, the analysis of demand gradually draws much more attention in recent years, as it mainly focuses on finding out the demand pattern. Inasmuch as the rapiddoi:10.26821/ijshre.9.3.2021.9305 fatcat:ur4yr72i4zbpblnqdkzu3yutmu

To fulfill this advanced analysis in an intelligent way, this work focuses on the analysis of demand starting from predicting the demand for energy by deep learning. This work predicts the future energy demand by giving historical production data to the neural network and estimates the energy demand. Once the energy demand is predicted through the proposed method, the enterprise can use it as a basis for the decision making of production policy or investing policy.
Cash flow is the key leading companies to go further, like blood flowing in us. We need to face for those fixed cost and variable costs. But the source of the funds are always happened to be ignored by the founders in practical experience. They consider technique and creativity to be more essential.

We would like to find the most optimized portfolio of affordable risk with comparatively high return to others. Using quantitative research and algorithms for machine learning to analyze which portfolio will be the best choice for those startup companies. Furthermore, we would dynamic adjust the factors in the algorithms for each period. Startups need to figure out how much they can earn in their business model. Processes on financing are always consuming more time than we assumed. Founders are always reserving enough time for turnover, and getting more source of funds to survive from the markets.

Routing algorithms are worked between routers to determine paths and maintain routing tables. Once the path is determined, routers can route routing protocols with other routers in the whole topology. As a whole, a proper routing protocol cannot only reduce the loading of the traffic in the Network Layer, but also can improve the performance of the entire network. In this work, to fulfil the aforementioned goal, we propose a topology which combines algorithms and protocols into a one integrateddoi:10.26821/ijshre.9.3.2021.9318 fatcat:zlieaix5vjbqjbokhv5jcf442u

In accordance with the statistical analysis, the industrial performance is usually related to research and development (R&D) intensity, and this factor indeed plausibly brings the biggest profit with patents and supporting products to the development of semiconductor industry. How to evaluate the completive performance of modern industries is an increasing issue, especially for the semiconductor industries in these decades. However, almost every traditional statistical model is deterred by thedoi:10.1109/access.2020.3019332 fatcat:ya5qq664x5fthpslhkhwqf3kre

To avoid this weakness, this paper therefore applies a gradient boosting based method -XGBoost to evaluate the feature importance of semiconductor industries. In the simulation experiments, different findings revel certain information, apart from R&D intensity, actually sway the gross net value in the annual financial announcement of semiconductor industries. Moreover, this paper proposes another concept to evaluate the essential factor contributing the development of semiconductor industries. Instead of only focusing on the effect of R&D intensity, this paper also predicts the future growth rate (GR) of net value by applying the greedy search of XGBoost Regression.

Among image classification, skip and densely-connection-based networks have dominated most leaderboards. Recently, from the successful development of multi-head attention in natural language processing, it is sure that now is a time of either using a Transformer-like model or hybrid CNNs with attention. However, the former need a tremendous resource to train, and the latter is in the perfect balance in this direction. In this work, to make CNNs handle global and local information, we proposedarXiv:2103.08640v2 fatcat:jlh6oumobzfbfgjzbsgx6gjdte

In experiments, UPANets surpassed most well-known and widely-used SOTAs with an accuracy of 96.47% in Cifar-10, 80.29% in Cifar-100, and 67.67% in Tiny Imagenet. Most importantly, these performances have high parameters efficiency and only trained in one customer-based GPU. We share implementing code of UPANets in https://github.com/hanktseng131415go/UPANets.

The legibility of traffic signs has been considered from the beginning of design, and traffic signs are easy to identify for humans. For computer systems, however, identifying traffic signs still poses a challenging problem. Both image-processing and machine-learning algorithms are constantly improving, aimed at better solving this problem. However, with a dramatic increase in the number of traffic signs, labelling a large amount of training data means high cost.

Here, the authors propose a novel semi-supervised learning approach combining global and local features for TSR in an IOT-based transport system. In their approach, histograms of oriented gradient, colour histograms (CH), and edge features (EF) are used to build different feature spaces. Meanwhile, on the unlabelled samples, a fusion feature space is found to alleviate the differences between different feature spaces. Extensive evaluations on a collection of signs from the German Traffic Sign Recognition Benchmark (GTSRB) dataset shows that the proposed approach outperforms the others and provides a potential solution for practical applications.
