Basic activities in llamas (Lama glama)

A Basic Characterization of Relation Migration
(Springer, 2010)Representing and reasoning over evolving objects has been investigated widely. Less attention has been devoted to the similar notion of relation migration, i.e., how tuples of a relation (ORM facts) can evolve along time. ... 
Basic Description Logics
(Cambridge University Press, 2003)This chapter provides an introduction to Description Logics as a formal language for representing knowledge and reasoning about it. It first gives a short overview of the ideas underlying Description Logics. Then it ... 
Basinscale analysis of the geomorphic effectiveness of flash floods: A study in the northern Apennines (Italy)
(2018)Large floods may produce remarkable channel changes, which determine damages and casualties in inhabited areas. However, our knowledge of such processes remains poor, as is our capability to predict them. This study analyses ... 
The Bass diffusion equation on scalefree networks with correlations and inhomogeneous advertising
(Polito, 2015)The Bass diffusion equation, which is an effective forecasting tool for innovation diffusion based on large collections of empirical data, assumes an homogeneous diffusion process. We introduce for the first time a network ... 
The Bass diffusion model on correlated scalefree networks
(Complex Systems Society, 2016) 
The Bass Diffusion Model on Finite BarabasiAlbert Networks
(2019)Using a heterogeneous meanfield network formulation of the Bass innovation diffusion model and recent exact results on the degree correlations of BarabasiAlbert networks, we compute the times of the diffusion peak and ... 
The Bass diffusion model on networks with correlations and inhomogeneous advertising
(2016)The Bass model, which is an effective forecasting tool for innovation diffusion based on large collections of empirical data, assumes an homogeneous diffusion process. We introduce a network structure into this model and ... 
Bayesian Calibration of Generalized Pools of Predictive Distributions
(2016)Decisionmakers often consult different experts to build reliable forecasts on variables of interest. Combining more opinions and calibrating them to maximize the forecast accuracy is consequently a crucial issue in several ... 
The Bayesian Description Logic BEL
(Springer, 2014)We introduce the probabilistic Description Logic BEL. In BEL, axioms are required to hold only in an associated context. The probabilistic component of the logic is given by a Bayesian network that describes the joint ... 
Bayesian Description Logics
(CEUR, 2014)We present Bayesian Description Logics (BDLs): an extension of Description Logics (DLs) with contextual probabilities encoded in a Bayesian network (BN). Classical DL reasoning tasks are extended to consider also the ... 
Bayesian model averaging in the presence of structural breaks
(Emerald Publishing Group, 2008)This chapter develops a return forecasting methodology that allows for instability in the relationship between stock returns and predictor variables, model uncertainty, and parameter estimation uncertainty. The predictive ... 
Bayesian Nearboundary Analysis in Basic Macroeconomic Timeseries Models
(2008)Several lessons learnt from a Bayesian analysis of basic macroeconomic timeseries models are presented for the situation where some model parameters have substantial posterior probability near the boundary of the parameter ... 
Bayesian Nonparametric Calibration and Combination of Predictive Distributions
(2016)We introduce a Bayesian approach to predictive density calibration and combination that accounts for parameter uncertainty and model set incompleteness through the use of random calibration functionals and random combination ... 
The Bayesian Ontology Language BEL
(2016)We introduce the new probabilistic description logic (DL) (Formula presented.), which extends the lightweight DL (Formula presented.) with the possibility of expressing uncertainty about the validity of some knowledge. ... 
The Bayesian Ontology Reasoner is BORN!
(CEUR, 2015)Bayesian ontology languages are a family of probabilistic ontology languages that allow to encode probabilistic information over the axioms of an ontology with the help of a Bayesian network. The Bayesian ontology language ... 
A BCI using VEP for continuous control of a mobile robot
(IEEE, 2013)A braincomputer interface (BCI) translates brain activity into commands to control devices or software. Common approaches are based on visual evoked potentials (VEP), extracted from the electroencephalogram (EEG) during ... 
BEACON: An Efficient SATBased Tool for Debugging EL+ Ontologies
(SpringerVerlag, 2016)Description Logics (DLs) are knowledge representation and reasoning formalisms used in many settings. Among them, the EL family of DLs stands out due to the availability of polynomialtime inference algorithms and its ... 
Beales Hotels: Embracing change while minding their own business for over 200 years
(Babson College Centre for Entrepreneurship, 2014)When a family business survives eight generations, they’re doing something right. The Beales family bakery in the 1790s evolved into what is now a luxury hotel company with a continually refined recipe for success. Part ...
