The performance of different bidding strategies for the resources which participate in reverse auction system has been investigated; our main parameter for evaluating different bidding strategies is the amount of the profit gained by resources which follow such strategies. The main historical bidding strategies are created based on two famous predictors ES and AUTO-REGRESSION. In addition a game theory approach has been proposed. We have shown that our bidding algorithm (based on the sequential game model) reaches to an equilibrium point if all the bidders follow... 

    Using Bump Modeling in Brain Wave Analysis

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghanbari Garakani, Zahra (Author) ; Shamsollahi, Mohammad Bagher (Supervisor)
    In this thesis, the efficiency of bump modeling has been investigated on brain signals, in a variety of aspects including analysis, detection, classification and prediction. The aim of bump modeling is to provide an optimized representation of the signal in time-frequency domain. This would be done by discriminating oscillatory bursts from background signal and then showing them by half-ellipsoid functions called bump. Consequently, the problem of dealing with large numbers of parameters and hence complicated calculations, which are serious concerns in similar methods, can be overcome. This is in addition to the benefits of using time-frequency representation of the signal.The aim of bump...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mohammadi, Mahsa (Author) ; Jahed, Mehran (Supervisor) ; Motahhari, Abolfazl (Co-Advisor)
    Dnase I Hypersensitive Sites (DHSs) are known as comprehensive markers of DNA regulatory elements. The main function of regulatory elements is repressing or enhancing transcription of genes. Hence, the recruitment of the data is prevalent in many studies of genome. One of the applications of this data is to utilize it to predict active regulatory regions (Transcription Factor Binding Sites).There are different means to do this, divided in three major groups: first, the methods only use the number of DNase-seq reads that surround a candidate binding site. While robust, these methods do not reflect the shape of the signal. A second strategy uses a variety of approaches to model and identify...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Taleb, Mohsen (Author) ; Akhavan Niaki, Taghi (Supervisor)
    Unstructured data is an important resource in data mining which In spite of their large volume, they haven’t been analyzed so much. Natural language data are a typical kind of unstructured data which humans can easily understand them but normally it is not possible for machines to process these kind of data. To make these data usable for prediction, pre-processing is required to prepare them for feeding into machine learning algorithms. Therefore, feature extraction is needed for texts in order to make presentative features from them that can unveil the hidden pattern. In this study, in addition to the variables that extracted from the technical indicators, the texts from telegram channels...
