  • Active learning methods based on statistical leverage scores 

    Orhan, Cem (Bilkent University, 2016-08)
    In many real-world machine learning applications, unlabeled data are abundant whereas the class labels are expensive and/or scarce. An active learner aims to obtain a model with high accuracy with as few labeled instances ...
  • Active node determination for correlated data gathering in wireless sensor networks 

    Karasabun, Efe (Bilkent University, 2009)
    In wireless sensor network applications where data gathered by different sensor nodes is correlated, not all sensor nodes need to be active for the wireless sensor network to be functional. However, the sensor nodes that ...
  • Active set partitioning scheme for extending the lifetime of large wireless sensor networks 

    Kalkan, Mustafa (Bilkent University, 2010)
    Wireless Sensor Networks consist of spatially distributed and energy-constrained autonomous devices called sensors to cooperatively monitor physical or environmental conditions such as temperature, sound, vibration, ...
  • Activity analysis for assistive systems 

    İşcen, Ahmet (Bilkent University, 2014)
    Although understanding and analyzing human actions is a popular research topic in computer vision, most of the research has focused on recognizing ”ordinary” actions, such as walking and jumping. Extending these methods ...
  • An actuated flexible spinal mechanism for a bounding quadrupedal robot 

    Çulha, Utku (Bilkent University, 2012)
