    Evolution of communication

    , Article Proceedings of the Seventh IASTED International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing, Banff, 14 July 2003 through 16 July 2003 ; Volume 7 , 2003 , Pages 274-277 ; 0889863679 (ISBN) Halavati, R ; Bagheri Shouraki, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    The evolution of communication and its consequences on living objects is a challenging subject for many researches. Due to lack of our knowledge about the real trend of this evolution, artificial life simulations can shed light on many dark points of this process. In this paper, we have used Zamin artificial life environment to test the emergence of a very simple form of communication. The usability of this new capability is tested by a simple test of coping with new environment

    The author utilized neuro-fuzzy based group method of data handling (NF-GMDH) to predict the local scour depth around pile groups under clear-water conditions. They collected the datasets from literature. To predict the local scour by using NF-GMDH, nine dimensional parameters were considered to define a functional relationship between input and output variables. The results of NF- GMDH networks were compared with that of the empirical equations. However, the collected datasets for pile group scouring, the method of implementing the empirical formula to calculate scour depth, and using the equation of Sheppard et al. (2004) suggested for single pier to predict local scouring around pile... 

    Chattering-free adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control

    , Article 2004 IEEE Conference on Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems, 1 December 2004 through 3 December 2004 ; 2004 , Pages 29-34 ; 0780386442 (ISBN); 9780780386440 (ISBN) Sadati, N ; Talasaz, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    An adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control (AFSMC) for uncertain dynamic systems is presented in this paper. Chattering problem in classical sliding mode control (CSMC) is highly undesirable because it may excite unmodeled high frequency plant dynamics and leads to unforeseen instabilities. The proposed approach in this paper completely eliminates the chattering by using adaptive fuzzy system to calculate continuous control gain vector instead of discontinuous one in classical sliding mode control. Mathematical proof for the stability and the convergence of the system is also presented to show its validity theoretically. The proposed approach and the classical sliding mode control are both...

Genetic algorithm is a useful technique for discovering this kind of classifiers and it has been used for this purpose in some studies. In this paper, we propose a new symbiotic evolutionary approach to find desired fuzzy rulebased classifiers. For this purpose, a symbiotic combination operator has been designed as an alternative to the recombination operator (crossover) in the genetic algorithms.

    Designing a fuzzy logic controller for a quadruped robot using human expertise extraction

    , Article 2013 21st Iranian Conference on Electrical Engineering, ICEE 2013 ; 2013 , 14-16 May ; 9781467356343 (ISBN) Zand, R. M ; Shouraki, S. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Many actions have been taken by researchers to design an appropriate controller for a quadruped robot. These efforts can be divided into two main categories: analytical and intelligent methods. The analytical method is based on the motion equations of the robot which are mostly complicated. These complication leads to difficulty in implementation. In contrast, there exists intelligent method which is based on the learning algorithms. Despite lots of improvements in the controlling of the quadruped robots, their ability of walking is still far less from the four legged animals' capability. Many researchers believe that four legged animals owe this priority to the learning attribute. Therefore...

    , Article Annals of Nuclear Energy ; Volume 35, Issue 11 , 2008 , Pages 2051-2058 ; 03064549 (ISSN) Seidi Khorramabadi, S ; Boroushaki, M ; Lucas, C ; Sharif University of Technology
    The design and evaluation of a novel approach to reactor core power control based on emotional learning is described. The controller includes a neuro-fuzzy system with power error and its derivative as inputs. A fuzzy critic evaluates the present situation, and provides the emotional signal (stress). The controller modifies its characteristics so that the critic's stress is reduced. Simulation results show that the controller has good convergence and performance robustness characteristics over a wide range of operational parameters. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved

    A novel approach is proposed to combine the strengths of GA and GP to optimize rule sets and membership functions of fuzzy systems in a co-evolutionary strategy in order to avoid the problem of dual representation in fuzzy systems. The novelty of proposed algorithm is twofold. One is that GP is used for the structural part (Rule sets) and GA for the string part (Membership functions). The goal is to reduce/eliminate the problem of competing conventions by co-evolving pieces of the problem separately and then in combination. Second is exploiting the synergism between rules sets and membership functions by imitating the effect of "matching" and friendship in cooperating teams of humans,...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Salehi, Samane (Author) ; Bozorgmehri, Ramin (Supervisor)
    Nowadays diabetes is considered as one of the common diseases among mankind. Different body organs utilize the glucose or the sugar existed in various kinds of food as an energy source in order to provide required energy for their activities. Insulin hormone which is created by the pancreas gland has a very significant role in easing the respective procedure. Therefore, when the body is not capable of producing enough insulin, then glucose aggregation in the blood leads to higher blood sugar and thus a disease called diabetes type1. Up to now, considerable research activities have been done regarding the diabetes type1modelling. One of the bolded drawbacks of such models is that the effect...

In General ADAS can be seen as a mother system with various subsystems to help the driver from pre-crash to post-crash situations. One of the subsystems for ADAS is the Collision Avoidance System (CAS). Nowadays, many researchers are working on different Aspects of CAS, from perception to decision making. Many challenges exist while developing a CAS, but today the greatest challenge is decision making of CAS and its interaction with driver’s behavior. Driving is a complex task and since driver’s consciousness, gender, age and reflexes can cause different behaviors; it is, therefore,...
