Yapay zeka günümüzde her alanda kullanımı gittikçe artan bir şekilde önem kazanmaktadır. Minsky (1975) yapay zeka kavramını; “insanın zekasını kullanarak yapabildiği işleri yapabilen makinenin oluşturulması hakkında bilimdir” şeklinde tanımlamıştır. Günümüzde sıklıkla artan yapay zeka uygulamaları tıp, işletmecilik, finans, insan kaynakları yönetim...
Article
Although there are many advanced systems to assist vessels with passing through narrow waterways, it continues to be a serious problem because of disturbance factors and geographic structure. By taking Istanbul Strait as a model for this study, we aimed to develop a decision support system and/or a guidance method to assist reciprocally passing ves...

A medical diagnosis system (DRCAD), which consists of two sub-modules Bayesian and rule-based inference models, is presented in this study. Three types of tests are conducted to assess the performances of the models producing synthetic data based on the ALARM network. The results indicate that the linear combination of the aforementioned models lea...
Chapter
The apparel retail sector is especially confronted with challenges and problems in logistics processes such as shrinkage, counterfeiting, out of stock situations and needs to find solutions for improvements. With the help of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, the services for apparel supply chain will be able to provide data or i...
Article
In this study, the mathematical principles of rough sets theory are explained and a sample application about rule discovery from a decision table by using different algorithms in rough sets theory is presented. Data mining and usage of the useful patterns that reside in the databases have become a very important research area because of the rapid d...
Chapter
Organizations have started to compete in a challenging and competitive environment with the effects of globalization. In today's world, organizations must manage many environmental factors. Technological developments are one of those factors to which organizations must manage and adapt themselves to gain competitive advantage. With increasing data...

Competitive advantage is at the heart of a firm’s performance in today’s challenging and rapidly changing environment. One of the central bases for achieving competitive advantage is the organizational capability to create new knowledge and transfer it across various levels of the organization. Traditional methods of data analysis, based mainly on...
Conference Paper
Since perishable products such as fresh produce, dairy and meat have a finite usable lifetime and constitute more than a third of the worldwide sales at grocery retailers, controlling the inventories of these products is increasingly important. Without alignment of physical inventory and information system inventory, inventory information becomes i...

AbstractShip design and construction are complicated and expensive processes. In the pre-design stage, before the construction according to some special rules, determination of the main ship parameters is very important. In this study, instead of traditional methods, the oil/chemical tanker main design parameters are estimated by 18 computational i...

Medical Decision Support Systems (MDSSs) are sophisticated, intelligent systems that can provide inference due to lack of information and uncertainty. In such systems, to model the uncertainty various soft computing methods such as Bayesian networks, rough sets, artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, inductive logic programming and genetic algori...
Conference Paper
Calculation of the required engine power and displacement takes an important place in the initial design of motorboats. Recently, several calculation methods with fewer parameters and with a possible gain of time compared to classical methods have been proposed. This study introduces a novel calculation method based on neural networks. The method r...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease of unknown aetiology. The seasonality of sarcoidosis in symptomatic, recently diagnosed patients with Löfgren's syndrome was evaluated to help better understand the possible causative factor(s) in the pathogenesis of sarcoidosis. Four hundred and ninety-two consecutive patients with sarcoidosis were investigated...
