    Abstract This paper proposes an improved high-precision 3D semantic mapping method for indoor scenes using RGB-D images. The current semantic mapping algorithms suffer from low semantic annotation accuracy and insufficient real-time performance. To address these issues, we first adopt the Elastic Fusion algorithm to select key frames from indoor environment image sequences captured by the Kinect sensor and construct the indoor environment space model. Then, an indoor RGB-D image semantic segmentation network is proposed, which uses multi-scale feature fusion to quickly and accurately obtain object labeling information at the pixel level of the spatial point cloud More >

    Abstract Building indoor dangerous behavior recognition is a specific application in the field of abnormal human recognition. A human dangerous behavior recognition method based on LSTM-GCN with attention mechanism (GLA) model was proposed aiming at the problem that the existing human skeleton-based action recognition methods cannot fully extract the temporal and spatial features. The network connects GCN and LSTM network in series, and inputs the skeleton sequence extracted by GCN that contains spatial information into the LSTM layer for time sequence feature extraction, which fully excavates the temporal and spatial features of the skeleton sequence.

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.1, pp. 733-759, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.027463

    Abstract Periodic pattern mining has become a popular research subject in recent years; this approach involves the discovery of frequently recurring patterns in a transaction sequence. However, previous algorithms for periodic pattern mining have ignored the utility (profit, value) of patterns. Additionally, these algorithms only identify periodic patterns in a single sequence. However, identifying patterns of high utility that are common to a set of sequences is more valuable. In several fields, identifying high-utility periodic frequent patterns in multiple sequences is important. In this study, an efficient algorithm called MHUPFPS was proposed to identify such patterns.

    Abstract Most studies have conducted experiments on predicting energy consumption by integrating data for model training. However, the process of centralizing data can cause problems of data leakage. Meanwhile, many laws and regulations on data security and privacy have been enacted, making it difficult to centralize data, which can lead to a data silo problem. Thus, to train the model while maintaining user privacy, we adopt a federated learning framework. However, in all classical federated learning frameworks secure aggregation, the Federated Averaging (FedAvg) method is used to directly weight the model parameters on average, which may… More >

    Abstract The optimization of multi-zone residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control is not an easy task due to its complex dynamic thermal model and the uncertainty of occupant-driven cooling loads. Deep reinforcement learning (DRL) methods have recently been proposed to address the HVAC control problem. However, the application of single-agent DRL for multi-zone residential HVAC control may lead to non-convergence or slow convergence. In this paper, we propose MAQMC (Multi-Agent deep Q-network for multi-zone residential HVAC Control) to address this challenge with the goal of minimizing energy consumption while maintaining occupants’ thermal comfort.

    Abstract This paper proposes a zero-moment control torque compensation technique. After compensating the gravity and friction of the robot, it must overcome a small inertial force to move in compliance with the external force. The principle of torque balance was used to realise the zero-moment dragging and teaching function of the lightweight collaborative robot. The robot parameter identification based on the least square method was used to accurately identify the robot torque sensitivity and friction parameters. When the robot joint rotates at a low speed, it can approximately satisfy the torque balance equation. The experiment uses More >

    Abstract At present, the leakage rate of the water distribution network in China is still high, and the waste of water resources caused by water distribution network leakage is quite serious every year. Therefore, the location of pipeline leakage is of great significance for saving water resources and reducing economic losses. Acoustic emission technology is the most widely used pipeline leak location technology. The traditional non-stationary random signal de-noising method mainly relies on the estimation of noise parameters, ignoring periodic noise and components unrelated to pipeline leakage.

    Abstract Interpreting deep neural networks is of great importance to understand and verify deep models for natural language processing (NLP) tasks. However, most existing approaches only focus on improving the performance of models but ignore their interpretability. In this work, we propose a Randomly Wired Graph Neural Network (RWGNN) by using graph to model the structure of Neural Network, which could solve two major problems (word-boundary ambiguity and polysemy) of Chinese NER. Besides, we develop a pipeline to explain the RWGNN by using Saliency Map and Adversarial Attacks. Experimental results demonstrate that our approach can identify More >
