    The classification performance of all-optical Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) is greatly influenced by components’ misalignment and translation of input images in the practical applications. In this paper, we propose a free-space all-optical CNN (named Trans-ONN) which accurately classifies translated images in the horizontal, vertical, or diagonal directions. Trans-ONN takes advantages of an optical motion pooling layer which provides the translation invariance property by implementing different optical masks in the Fourier plane for classifying translated test images. Moreover, to enhance the translation invariance property, global average pooling (GAP) is utilized in the Trans-ONN... 

    Use of artificial neural networks in a QSAR study of Anti-HIV activity for a large group of HEPT derivatives

    , Article Journal of Chemical Information and Computer Sciences ; Volume 40, Issue 1 , 2000 , Pages 147-154 ; 00952338 (ISSN) Jalali Heravi, M ; Parastar, F ; Sharif University of Technology

    Anti-HIV activity for a set of 107 inhibitors of the HIV-1 reverse transcriptase, derivatives of 1-[2-hydroxyethoxy)methyl]-6-(phenylthio)thymine (HEPT), was modeled with the aid of chemometric techniques. The activity of these compounds was estimated by means of multiple linear regression (MLR) and artificial neural network (ANN) techniques and compared with the previous works. The results obtained using the MLR method indicate that the anti-HIV activity of the HEPT derivatives depends on the reverse of standard shadow area on the YZ plane and the ratio of the partial charges of the most positive atom to the most negative atom of the molecule. The best computational neural network model was...

    Background: We developed transformer-based deep learning models based on natural language processing for early risk assessment of Alzheimer’s disease from the picture description test. Methods: The lack of large datasets poses the most important limitation for using complex models that do not require feature engineering. Transformer-based pre-trained deep language models have recently made a large leap in NLP research and application. These models are pre-trained on available large datasets to understand natural language texts appropriately, and are shown to subsequently perform well on classification tasks with small training sets. The overall classification model is a simple classifier on...

    , Article 2007 ASME Turbo Expo, Montreal, Que., 14 May 2007 through 17 May 2007 ; Volume 6 PART B , 2007 , Pages 1199-1208 ; 079184790X (ISBN); 9780791847909 (ISBN) Ghorbanian, K ; Gholamrezaei, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The application of artificial neural network to compressor performance map prediction is investigated. Different types of artificial neural network such as multilayer perceptron network, radial basis function network, general regression neural network, and a rotated general regression neural network proposed by the authors are considered. Two different models are utilized in simulating the performance map. The results indicate that while the rotated general regression neural network has the least mean error and best agreement to the experimental data, it is however limited to curve fitting application. On the other hand, if one considers a tool for curve fitting as well as for interpolation...

    The classification of biological sequences is an open issue for a variety of data sets, such as viral and metagenomics sequences. Therefore, many studies utilize neural network tools, as the well-known methods in this field, and focus on designing customized network structures. However, a few works focus on more effective factors, such as input encoding method or implementation technology, to address accuracy and efficiency issues in this area. Therefore, in this work, we propose an image-based encoding method, called as WalkIm, whose adoption, even in a simple neural network, provides competitive accuracy and superior efficiency, compared to the existing classification methods (e.g. VGDC,... 

    Average consensus in networks of dynamic multi-agents with switching topology: Infinite matrix products

    , Article ISA Transactions ; Volume 51, Issue 4 , 2012 , Pages 522-530 ; 00190578 (ISSN) Atrianfar, H ; Haeri, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper deals with the average consensus problem in a multi-agent system with switching interaction topology modeled as a weighted digraph. The convergence analysis is performed in both discrete-time and continuous-time dynamics based on the theory of infinite matrix products. Conditions for system convergence to average consensus are derived in the form of constraints on direct and reverse graphs and the structure of adjacency elements among the agents. Furthermore, a sufficient condition is provided for convergence to average consensus in systems in which the interaction topology is balanced over infinite contiguous non-overlapping time intervals instead of being balanced continuously....

B ; Hashemi, M. R ; Rezazadeh, I ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper introduces a wavelet packet algorithm based on a new wavelet like filter created by a neural mass model in place of wavelet. The hypothesis is that the performance of an ERP based BCI system can be improved by choosing an optimal wavelet derived from underlying mechanism of ERPs. The wavelet packet transform has been chosen for its generalization in comparison to wavelet. We compared the performance of proposed algorithm with existing standard wavelets as Db4, Bior4.4 and Coif3 in wavelet packet platform. The results showed a lowest cross validation error for the new filter in classification of two different kinds of ERP datasets via a SVM classifier. © 2007 IEEE

    The authors simulated a reservoir by using two-layer perceptron. Indeed a model was developed to simulate the increase in oil recovery caused by bacteria injection into an oil reservoir. This model was affected by reservoir temperature and amount of water injected into the reservoir for enhancing oil recovery. Comparing experimental and simulation results and also the erratic trend of data show that the neural networks have modeled this system properly. Considering the effects of nonlinear factors and their erratic and unknown impacts on recovered oil, the perceptron neural network can develop a proper model for oil recovery factor in various conditions. The neural networks have not been...

    , Article Neurocomputing ; Volume 115 , September , 2013 , Pages 166-168 ; 09252312 (ISSN) Merrikh Bayat, F ; Bagheri Shouraki, S ; Esmaili Paeen Afrakoti, I ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this study we will show that the variation rate of the memristance of the memristive device depends completely on its current memristance which means that it can change significantly with time during the learning phase. This phenomenon can degrade the performance of learning methods like Spike Timing-Dependent Plasticity (STDP) and cause the corresponding neuromorphic systems to become unstable

    , Article SAR and QSAR in Environmental Research ; Volume 22, Issue 3-4 , May , 2011 , Pages 293-314 ; 1062936X (ISSN) Jalali Heravi, M ; Mani Varnosfaderani, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Bayesian regularised genetic neural network (BRGNN) has been used for modelling the inhibition activity of 141 biphenylalanine derivatives as integrin antagonists. Three local pattern search (PS) methods, simulated annealing and threshold acceptance were combined with BRGNN in the form of a hybrid genetic algorithm (HGA). The results obtained revealed that PS is a suitable method for improving the ability of BRGNN to break out from the local minima. The proposed HGA technique is able to retrieve important variables from complex systems and nonlinear search spaces for optimisation. Two models with 8-3-1 artificial neural network (ANN) architectures were developed for describingα 4β 7 and α 4β...

    Adjustable primitive pattern generator: A novel cerebellar model for reaching movements

    , Article Neuroscience Letters ; Volume 406, Issue 3 , 2006 , Pages 232-234 ; 03043940 (ISSN) Vahdat, S ; Maghsoudi, A ; Haji Hasani, M ; Towhidkhah, F ; Gharibzadeh, S ; Jahed, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Cerebellum has been assumed as an array of adjustable pattern generators (APGs). In recent years, electrophysiological researches have suggested the existence of modular structures in spinal cord called motor primitives. In our proposed model, each "adjustable primitive pattern generator" (APPG) module in the cerebellum is consisted of a large number of parallel APGs, the output of each module being the weighted sum of the outputs of these APGs. Each spinal field is tuned by a coefficient, representing a descending supraspinal command, which is modulated by ith APPG correspondingly. According to this model, motor control can be interpreted in terms of the modification of these coefficients....

    Transmission of natural gas from its sources to end users in various geographical locations is carried out mostly by natural gas transmission pipeline networks (NGTNs). Effective design and operation of NGTNs requires insights into their steady-state and, particularly, dynamic behavior. This, in turn, calls for efficient computer-aided approaches furnished with accurate mathematical models. The conventional mathematical methods for the dynamic simulation of NGTNs are computationally intensive. In this paper, the use of autoregressive neural networks for cost-effective dynamic simulation of NGTNs is proposed. Considering the length, diameter, roughness, and elevation as the main...
