Robust temporal constraint network

Iloong Chuin Lau, T. Ou, M. Sim
2005 17th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI'05)  
In this paper, we propose the Robust Temporal Constraint Network (RTCN) model for simple temporal constraint networks where activity durations are bounded by random variables.  ...  Experimentally, we study the effects the density of temporal constraint networks have on its makespan under different confidence levels.  ...  We will then survey recent advances on robust optimization.  ...

Periodicity-Based Temporal Constraints [chapter]

Paolo Terenziani, Luca Anselma, Stefania Montani
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a framework for representing and reasoning about qualitative and quantitative temporal constraints on periodic events.  ...  We first propose a correct but not complete intensional approach to temporal reasoning based on the operations of intersection and composition, and then we complement it with a correct and complete extensional  ...  Intensional calculus Intensional vs extensional calculus Given a KB of periodicity-based temporal constraints, we aim at providing a constraint-propagation-based form of temporal reasoning to amalgamate  ...

A survey of temporal data mining

Srivatsan Laxman, P. S. Sastry
2006 Sadhana (Bangalore)  
The field of temporal data mining is concerned with such analysis in the case of ordered data streams with temporal interdependencies.  ...  Over the last decade many interesting techniques of temporal data mining were proposed and shown to be useful in many applications.  ...  Temporal data mining, however, is of a more recent origin with somewhat different constraints and objectives.  ...

2020 arXiv   pre-print
This article presents a comprehensive survey of the research from the past decades on temporal reasoning for automatic temporal information extraction from text, providing a case study on the integration  ...  Temporal reasoning, the process of combining different temporal cues into a coherent temporal view, plays a central role in temporal information extraction.  ...  A major difference between MLN and the methods mentioned earlier, is that instead of combining locally trained models in a global inference setting, MLN also incorporate the temporal constraints in training  ...
