Truthful Facility Location with Additive Errors [article]

Iddan Golomb, Christos Tzamos
2017 arXiv   pre-print
As opposed to the extensive literature on facility location which considers the multiplicative error, we focus on minimizing the worst-case additive error.  ...  Minimizing the additive error incentivizes mechanisms to adapt to the size of the instance.  ...  Discussion and Open Problems We examine the problem of truthful facility location under additive errors.  ...

2015 Geography Journal  
Ground-truthing showed substantial locational inaccuracy and error in hazardous facility databases and statewide air toxics emission inventories of up to 10 kilometers.  ...  These errors resulted in significant differences in cumulative impact screening scores generated by one screening tool, the Environmental Justice Screening Method.  ...  source(s) with (i) subsequent correction applied to facility location(s) and/or (ii) removal of nonexistent facilities or addition of new facilities based on visual confirmation and GPS location) to determine  ...

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Ground-Truth

James Sadd, Rachel Morello-Frosch, Manuel Pastor, Martha Matsuoka, Michele Prichard, Vanessa Carter
2013 Health Education & Behavior  
We document how an environmental justice screening method was coupled with "ground-truthing"-a project in which community members worked with researchers to collect data across six Los Angeles neighborhoods-which  ...  demonstrated the clustering of potentially hazardous facilities, high levels of air pollution, and elevated health risks.  ...  The authors declared no potential conflicts of interest with respect to the research, authorship, and/or publication of this article.  ...

Using a Map of Measurement Noise to Improve UWB Indoor Position Tracking

William Suski, Salil Banerjee, Adam Hoover
2013 IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement  
We tested our methods in two facilities, collecting over 5.6 million measurements. Evidence shows that the measurement noise is multimodal, location dependent, stable over time, and locally similar.  ...  Figs. 2 and 3 denote the collection locations with unfilled squares. Measurements were taken at 7931 locations in the Shoothouse facility and 3272 locations in the Riggs facility.  ...  Figs. 12 and 13 show the average error vector for every fourth collection location in each facility.  ...

Acoustic localization of antbirds in a Mexican rainforest using a wireless sensor network

Travis C. Collier, Alexander N. G. Kirschel, Charles E. Taylor
2010 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Both free-ranging wild antbird songs and songs played from a speaker were localized with mean errors of 0.199 m and 0.445 m, respectively.  ...  Finally, additional tests utilizing only a short segment of each song or a subset of sensor nodes were performed and found to minimally affect localization accuracy.  ...  The smaller localization errors for playbacks at location 6 are likely due to that location being in a relatively open area with line of sight to five recording nodes.  ...

Strategyproof classification

Reshef Meir, Jeffrey S. Rosenschein
2011 ACM SIGecom Exchanges  
Experts reporting the labels used by a learning algorithm cannot always be assumed to be truthful.  ...  Facility location In the facility location (FL) problem, agents report their location (usually in some metric space), and the mechanism outputs a location for a facility that is close, on average, to all  ...  The IR condition in the FL setting is translated to the restriction that agents' locations are limited vertices where the facility can be placed.  ...
