February 2018 Pattern Recognition: Volume 74 Issue C, February 2018
Publisher: Elsevier Science Inc.
Bibliometrics:
Citation Count: 0

We investigate the discriminant info contained in electrical energy consumption.This distinctiveness opens the possibility of novel personal advertisement.Experiments on two real datasets provide encouraging results. The recent increasing availability of fine-grained electrical consumption data allows the exploitation of Pattern Recognition techniques to characterize and analyse the behaviour of energy customers. ...

We perform recommendations for the Social Ridesharing scenario, in which a set of commuters, connected through a social network, arrange one-time rides at short notice. In particular, we focus on how much one should pay for taking a ride with friends. More formally, we propose the first approach that can ...

We consider the Social Ridesharing (SR) problem, where a set of commuters, connected through a social network, arrange one-time rides at short notice. In particular, we focus on the associated optimisation problem of forming cars to minimise the travel cost of the overall system modelling such problem as a graph ...

We present an ethnographic study of energy advisors working for a charity that provides support, particularly to people in fuel poverty. Our fieldwork comprises detailed observations that reveal the collaborative, interactional work of energy advisors and clients during home visits, supplemented with interviews and a participatory design workshop with advisors. ...

Modelling behavioural biometric patterns is a key issue for modern user centric applications, aimed at better monitoring users' activities, understanding their habits and detecting their identity. Following this trend, this paper investigates whether the electrical energy consumption of a user can be a distinctive behavioural biometric trait. In particular we ...

We consider the coalition structure generation (CSG) problem on synergy graphs, which arises in many practical applications where communication constraints, social or trust relationships must be taken into account when forming coalitions. We propose a novel representation of this problem based on the concept of edge contraction , and an ...

Coalition Structure Generation---the problem of finding the optimal division of agents into coalitions---has received considerable attention in recent AI literature. The fastest exact algorithm to solve this problem is IDP-IP$^*$, which is a hybrid of two previous algorithms, namely IDP and IP. Given this, it is desirable to speed up ...

Crowdsourcing is a multi-agent task allocation paradigm that involves up to millions of workers, of varying reliability and availability, performing large numbers of micro-tasks. A key challenge is to crowdsource, at minimal cost and with predictable accuracy, complex tasks that involve different types of interdependent microtasks structured into complex workflows. ...

Recently, many algorithms have been developed for autonomous agents to manage home energy use on behalf of their human owners. By so doing, it is expected that agents will be more efficient at, for example, choosing the best energy tariff to switch to when dynamically priced tariffs come about. However, ...

Citation Count: 8

We address the problem of forecasting the usage of multiple electrical appliances by domestic users, with the aim of providing suggestions about the best time to run appliances in order to reduce carbon emissions and save money (assuming time-of-use pricing), while minimising the impact on the users' daily habits. An ...

Coalition formation is a fundamental approach to multi-agent coordination. In this paper we address the specific problem of coalition structure generation, and focus on providing good-enough solutions using a novel heuristic approach that is based on data clustering methods. In particular, we propose a hierarchical agglomerative clustering approach (C-Link), which ...

In this paper, we address the problem of predicting the usage of home appliances where a key challenge is to model the everyday routine of homeowners and the inter-dependency between the use of different appliances. To this end, we propose an agent based prediction algorithm that captures the everyday habits ...

In this paper, we present a software tool to help emergency planners at Hampshire County Council in the UK to create maps for high-fidelity crowd simulations that require evacuation routes from buildings to roads. The main feature of the system is a crowdsourcing mechanism that breaks down the problem of ...

Crowdsourcing has become a popular means for quickly achieving various tasks in large quantities. CollabMap is an online mapping application in which we crowdsource the identification of evacuation routes in residential areas to be used for planning large-scale evacuations. So far, approximately 38,000 micro-tasks have been completed by over 100 ...

We consider coalition formation problems for agents with an underlying synergistic graph , where edges between agents represent some vital synergistic link, such as communication, trust, or physical constraints. A coalition is infeasible if its members do not form a connected subgraph, meaning parts of the coalition are isolated from ...

In this paper, we present a novel decentralised management technique that allows electricity micro-storage devices, deployed within individual homes as part of a smart electricity grid, to converge to profitable and efficient behaviours. Specifically, we propose the use of software agents, residing on the users' smart meters, to automate and ...
