  Title Organ identification on shrimp histological images: A comparative study considering CNN and feature engineering. Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication IEEE Ecuador Technical Chapters Meeting ETCM 2018. Cuenca, Ecuador Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 1-6  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The identification of shrimp organs in biology using

histological images is a complex task. Shrimp histological images

poses a big challenge due to their texture and similarity among

classes. Image classification by using feature engineering and

convolutional neural networks (CNN) are suitable methods to

assist biologists when performing organ detection. This work

evaluates the Bag-of-Visual-Words (BOVW) and Pyramid-Bagof-

Words (PBOW) models for image classification leveraging big

data techniques; and transfer learning for the same classification

task by using a pre-trained CNN. A comparative analysis

of these two different techniques is performed, highlighting

the characteristics of both approaches on the shrimp organs

identification problem.

  Title Deep Learning based Single Image Dehazing Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication 14th IEEE Workshop on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum – In conjunction with CVPR 2018. Salt Lake City, Utah. USA Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to remove haze

degradations in RGB images using a stacked conditional

Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). It employs a triplet

of GAN to remove the haze on each color channel independently.

A multiple loss functions scheme, applied over a

conditional probabilistic model, is proposed. The proposed

GAN architecture learns to remove the haze, using as conditioned

entrance, the images with haze from which the clear

images will be obtained. Such formulation ensures a fast

model training convergence and a homogeneous model generalization.

Experiments showed that the proposed method

generates high-quality clear images.

  Title Near InfraRed Imagery Colorization Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication 25 th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing, ICIP 2018 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 2237-2241  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This paper proposes a stacked conditional Generative

Adversarial Network-based method for Near InfraRed

(NIR) imagery colorization. We propose a variant architecture

of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that uses multiple

loss functions over a conditional probabilistic generative model.

We show that this new architecture/loss-function yields better

generalization and representation of the generated colored IR

images. The proposed approach is evaluated on a large test

dataset and compared to recent state of the art methods using

standard metrics.1

  Title Qualitative Model of Control in the Pressure Stabilization of PEM Fuel Cell Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication 7th International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Applications, ICRERA 2018. Paris, Francia. Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 1221-1226  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This work describes an approximate reasoning

technique to deal with the non-linearity that occurs in the

stabilization of the pressure of anodic and cathodic gases of a

proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEM). The implementation

of a supervisory element in the stabilization of the pressure of the

PEM cell is described. The fuzzy supervisor is a reference

control, it varies the value of the reference given to the classic

low-level controller, Proportional – Integral – Derivative (PID),

according to the speed of change of the measured pressure and

the change in the error of the pressure. The objective of the fuzzy

supervisor is to achieve a rapid response over time of the variable

pressure, avoiding unwanted overruns with respect to the

reference value. A comparative analysis is detailed with the

classic PID control to evaluate the operation of the “fuzzy

supervisor”, with different flow values and different sizes of

active area of the PEM cell (electric power generated).

  Title BPM and requirements elicitation at multiple levels of abstraction: A review Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication IADIS International Conference on Information Systems 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 237-242  
  Keywords Business process modeling, levels of abstraction, requirements elicitation, requirements modeling, review  
  Abstract Business process models can be useful for requirements elicitation, among other things. Software development depends on the quality of the requirements elicitation activities, and so adequately modeling business processes (BPs) is critical. A key factor in achieving this is the active participation of all the stakeholders in the development of a shared vision of BPs.

Unfortunately, organizations often find themselves left with inconsistent BPs that do not cover all the stakeholders’ needs

and constraints. However, consolidation of the various stakeholder requirements may be facilitated through the use of multiple levels of abstraction (MLA). This article contributes to the research into MLA use in business process modeling (BPM) for software requirements by reviewing the theoretical foundations of MLA and their use in various BP-oriented approaches.

  Title Requirements Elicitation Using BPM Notations: Focusing on the Strategic Level Representation Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication 10th WSEAS international conference on Applied computer and applied computational science Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 235-241  
  Keywords Business process modeling, levels of abstraction, requirements elicitation, case study, action research  
  Abstract Business process models (BPM) can be useful for requirements elicitation, among other uses. Since the active participation of all stakeholders is a key factor for successful requirements engineering, it is important that BPM be shared by all stakeholders. Unfortunately, organizations may end up with inconsistent BPM not covering all stakeholders’ needs and constraints. The use of multiple levels of abstraction (MLA), such as at the strategic, tactical and operational levels, is often used in various process-oriented initiatives to facilitate the consolidation of various stakeholders’ needs and constraints. This article surveys the use of MLA in recent BPM research publications and reports on a BPM action-research case study conducted in a Canadian organization, with the aim of exploring the usefulness of the strategic level.

  Title Facts and Perceptions Regarding Software Measurement in Education and in Practice: Preliminary Results Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication Journal of Software Engineering and Application Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages pp. 227-234  
  Keywords Software measurement, education, software engineering  
  Abstract How is software measurement addressed in undergraduate and graduate programs in universities? Do organizations consider that the graduating students they hire have an adequate knowledge of software measurement? To answer these and related questions, a survey was administered to participants who attended the IWSM-MENSURA 2010 conference in Stuttgart, Germany. Forty-seven of the 69 conference participants (including software development practitioners, software measurement consultants, university professors, and graduate students) took part in the survey. The results indicate that software measurement topics are: A) covered mostly at the graduate level and not at the undergraduate level, and B) not mandatory. Graduate students and professors consider that, of the measurement topics covered in university curricula, specific topics, such as measures for the requirements phase, and measurement techniques and tools, receive more attention in the academic context. A common observation of the practitioners who participated in the survey was that students hired as new employees bring limited software measurement-related knowledge to their organizations. Discussion of the findings and directions for future research are presented.

  Title DARE: Adaptive Data Replication for Efficient Cluster Scheduling Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing, 2011 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) Issue Pages 159 - 168  
  Keywords MapReduce, replication, scheduling, locality  
  Abstract Placing data as close as possible to computation is a common practice of data intensive systems, commonly referred to as the data locality problem. By analyzing existing production systems, we confirm the benefit of data locality and find that data have different popularity and varying correlation of accesses. We propose DARE, a distributed adaptive data replication algorithm that aids the scheduler to achieve better data locality. DARE solves two problems, how many replicas to allocate for each file and where to place them, using probabilistic sampling and a competitive aging algorithm independently at each node. It takes advantage of existing remote data accesses in the system and incurs no extra network usage. Using two mixed workload traces from Facebook, we show that DARE improves data locality by more than 7 times with the FIFO scheduler in Hadoop and achieves more than 85% data locality for the FAIR scheduler with delay scheduling. Turnaround time and job slowdown are reduced by 19% and 25%, respectively.
