Question
1 answer
I have found a beautiful technique to solve math problems such as:
  • Goldbach’s conjecture
  • Riemann hypothesis
The technique uses the notions of regular languages. The complexity class that contains all the regular languages is REG. Moreover, these mathematical proofs are based on if some unary language belongs to NSPACE(S(log n)), then the binary version of that language belongs to NSPACE(S(n)) and vice versa. The complexity class NSPACE(f(n)) is the set of decision problems that can be solved by a nondeterministic Turing machine M, using space f(n), where n is the length of the input.
We prove there are non-regular languages that define mathematical problems. Indeed, if those math problems are not true, then they have a finite or infinite number of counterexamples (the complement languages contain the counterexample elements). However, we know every finite language is regular. Therefore, those languages are true or they have an infinite number of counterexamples, because if they have a finite number of counterexamples, then the complement language should be in REG, that is, this complement must be a regular language. Indeed, we show some mathematical problems cannot have a finite number of counterexamples using the complexity result, that is, we demonstrate their complement languages cannot be regular. In this way, we prove these problems should be true or they have an infinite number of counterexamples as the remaining only option.

Question

Any decision-making problem when precisely formulated within the framework of mathematics is posed as an optimization problem. There are so many ways, in fact, I think infinitely many ways one can partition the set of all possible optimization problems into classes of problems.
1. I often hear people label meta-heuristic and heuristic algorithms as general algorithms (I understand what they mean) but I'm thinking about some things, can we apply these algorithms to any arbitrary optimization problems from any class or more precisely can we adjust/re-model any optimization problem in a way that permits us to attack those problems by the algorithms in question?
2. Then I thought well if we assumed that the answer to 1 is yes then by extending the argument I think also we can re-formulate any given problem to be attacked by any algorithm we desire (of-course with a cost) then it is just a useless tautology.
I'm looking foe different insights :)

Relevant answer
Answer
Lecture Notes in computer science is the best publication outlet so far. However, acceptance depends upon several factors. one of them is - who are organizers? Except in TOP tire conferences(CORE A or A+), my personal experience is that - if your good paper will be evaluated by tough reviewer it can be rejected and on the other hand if your weak paper is evaluated by lenient reviewers, in that case your paper will be accepted and it does not depend upon the publication outlet. Now days situation is different and several organizations are created only for generating money(https://www.researchgate.net/post/Why_conferences_are_charging_high_registration_fees150_for_online_Conferences_during_CORONA_Pandemics). In such conferences they get approval good publication outlets(mostly springer, IoS, IoP) and accept max no of submissions. Dr Mahdi H. Miraz
Question

We want to have 5'000 to 10,000 words from several technical languages judged according to emotional criteria (valence, arousal, imaginability). Computer science often uses a few raters (2-5). In other disciplines ten or more raters are used (e.g. psychology, linguistics).
Relevant answer
Answer
For a technical language, the emotional factor should be...close to zero. The emotion is, for one word, the relation between form (written or spoken) and effect over a human-subject. Technical language is tailored exclusively on a non-emotional factor, but on a scientific embodiment of data. Therefore, ideally, the emotional factor shouldn't interfere at all.
However, if you really want to extract this information, I would rely more on a human evaluation. 10,000 words means more or less @30-33 pages which is not too much of reading after all...I think.

We want to have 10,000 sentences judged according to emotional criteria (valence, arousal, etc.). Computer science often uses a few raters (2-5). In other disciplines ten or more raters are used (e.g. psychology, linguistics).
The sentences originate from several technical languages. In addition to teaching materials, they include general discussions during the study of these disciplines. The sentences usually range from medium difficulty to purely technical language.

Lionel Nicolas Thank you for your most feard answer! In fact, I suspect that there are no valid recommandation for a simple number.
I suppose, there may be some statistical reasons for a higher number of raters.

Please share your thoughts on teaching the "Introduction to Programming" course or teaching in general. Any suggestion/experience is appreciated.
Relevant answer
Answer
For introducing programming, it's critical to focus on the goal and outcomes of the class, which is to show the students that:
  • It's just a machine that will do what it is told
  • They can tell it what to do
  • You don't need to know a lot of stuff to make it do some pretty powerful things
  • Breaking it is fun!
At the end of an introductory course, the students should understand:
  1. The basic elements of a computer and how they work together to execute a program (CPU, memory, disk, and network) with some very simple descriptions. This provides context for everything else and it's surprising how many entry-level developers don't really know this
  2. Getting and setting variables, printing stuff out, and console I/O. This lets the students see that they can make the machine do stuff, even if it's just printing out what they typed in. This gives a feeling of control and opens up the possibilities.
  3. Arithmetic and string operators, so you can show them how to mess with the variables
  4. Basic flow and flow control (if/then; case/switch). Now the program can make decisions!
  5. Loops (for, while). Now it can do boring stuff over and over again!
  6. Functions and parameters. This shows them how to isolate repeated code and is a good place to introduce the DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) principle. Also is a setup for learning how to make network-based calls, but that should come later.
  7. Data structures (basic). Ways to represent data as a bundle. Very dependent on the language used, but very important.
  8. Recursion. This breaks a lot of people, but is the only way to efficiently solve some problems. Don't be too harsh on people that don't "get it"
  9. Pointers. Understanding the difference between reference and value is critical in so many languages, even those that don't have "pointers" per se like Java, but still have places where values and references are different.
Avoid object-oriented programming for an introductory course. You can use an OO language, just avoid the concepts, because you'll waste days talking about encapsulation, data hiding, public vs. private, and all that junk, which gets in the way of actually making the machine do stuff.

Another important attached concept is:
1. Principal Investigator (PI) usually after the name has ** PI
2. Co-Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator (Co-PI/Co-I)
3. Faculty Participant
Traditionally, the last author position is reserved for the supervisor or principal investigator. As such, this person receives much of the credit when the research goes well and the flak when things go wrong.
Multiple “first” authors. Additional “first” authors can be noted by an asterisk or other symbol accompanied by an explanatory note. This practice is common in interdisciplinary studies; however, as we shall explain further below, the first name listed on a paper will still enjoy more visibility than any other “first” author. https://wordvice.com/journal-article-author-order/
Multiple “last” authors. Similar to recognizing several first authors, multiple last authors can be recognized via typographical symbols and footnotes. This practice arose as some journals wanted to increase accountability by requiring senior lab members to review all data and interpretations produced in their labs.

Hi, as part of my bachelor thesis on the design of programming languages for teaching mathematics in the 21st century, I have planned to discuss the evolution of (the) major programing languages which focus on the idea that computer programming could play an integral role in STEM education.
In order to analyze different programming languages as a framework for teaching (primarily) mathematical concepts, I am currently searching for (citable) research projects providing insights into the historical development of educational programming languages. – Are you familiar with any research on the evolution of educational programming languages?
Many thanks in advance for your contributions,
Tobias

YES Tobias ... do not forget paradigms ... they can help you in your investigations.
Precisely, look at the indexes of use of programming languages (tiobe index for example) ... the evolution of educational programming languages must be particularly interested in the paradigms of these programming languages.
How to explain the rank of the C language? (procedural paradigm ..) Why python is widely used? (object paradigm). is it the object paradigm that explains the use of this language !? or quite simply, it is more used by non-computer scientists where the principles of the object paradigm and strong typing are completely ignored?

My name is Hagos Meles. I have BSc. Degree in Computer Engineering. I have been worked in database and GIS (geographical Information System) related fields in the past 5 years. Now I am studying master's degree in computer science in Huazhong University of Science and Technology. In the next semester I have to submit my proposal for my research area.
In Asmara (capital city of my country Eritrea) cadaster office database management system have not Geodatabase to include geographical information of the building, roads and other infrastructure of the city. Due to this it is difficult to find the exact location of a specific building or other infrastructure. I want to design geodatabase for this cadaster office as my master’s research topic to overcome the above problem. So what would you suggest me? Is this enough research topic for master’s degree in our school Computer Science? Thank you for your time.

You have a good idea. Now you have to formulate it into a research question. For example, "How does Cadaster DBMS perform with Geo-database?".
2. Then you can list a number of performance metrics against which you can compare your proposed system (i.e. cadaster with geo-database) to the existing system. You can get the appropriate metrics from literature review of similar works.
3. Then develop your system and test it against the metrics in (2) above. Similarly test the current system against the same metrics.
4. Then compare the two system and conclude whether your proposed system is better, or where are the strength and weaknesses of your proposed system compared to the current system.

The question of how computers can contribute to controlling the COVID-19 pandemic is being posed to experts in artificial intelligence (AI) all over the world.
AI tools can help in many different ways. They are being used to predict the spread of the coronavirus, map its genetic evolution as it transmits from human to human, speed up diagnosis, and in the development of potential treatments, while also helping policymakers cope with related issues, such as the impact on transport, food supplies and travel.
But in all these cases, AI is only effective if it has sufficient examples to learn from. As COVID-19 has taken the world into unchartered territory, the "deep learning" systems, which computers use to acquire new capabilities, don’t necessarily have the data they need to produce useful outputs.

Hi all,
I've used the ATHI scale to investigate attitudes towards homeless across two disciplines: Social Work and Computer Science. It has been validated. However, the scale only uses 11 items intotal which makes me think this may be one reason. Another reason is that I am simply doing the analysis wrong. Can anyone help?
The ATHI scale has 4 sub-scales (Personal Causation, Societal Causation, Affiliation and Solutions). When analysing the PC sub-scale I get a Cronback's alpha of .47. This subscale only has 3 items. Also, am I supposed to split these between subjects? If so, for social work students the Cronback's alpha is .484 and for computer science students the Cronback's alpha is .525.
Help is apprecaited.
Relevant answer
Answer
When running a Cronbach's Alpha, you want to aim for a coefficient score of 0.70 or higher. However, it is difficult to get a good score when the scale you are using has a low number of items. Assuming that you are using SPSS to run your Cronbach's Alpha, you should go back in, go to analyze, then scale, then reliability assessment, then click on Statistics. Here you will be able to check the box to see which sub-scale you need to remove to get a score of 0.70 or higher. Once you find that sub-scale, simply remove it from your data set, and run your Cronbach's Alpha again. Good luck!

Dear Colleagues,
The occurrence of a new, extremely pathogenic betacoronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 (2019-nCoV), is responsible for the CoVid-19 pandemic health emergency. Accordingly, SARS-CoV-2 represents a serious global health warning characterized by high mortality, a high contagion rate, and a lack of clinically approved drugs and vaccines. In order to find safe and effective therapeutic options to treat this infectious disease, computer science could play an extremely relevant role to better understand the virus pathogenic mechanism as well as to propose novel therapeutic strategies. Accordingly, due to progress in computer science, in silico methodologies in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, biology, genetics, and virology cover relevant tasks in modern research in these fields. Furthermore, due to the current global health warning, such computational techniques could speed up research in order to provide innovative and targeted approaches to fight the coronavirus emergency. In light of this, this Special Issue will highlight progress in terms of drug discovery, virus biology, and epidemiology to provide researchers with the most innovative computer-driven methodologies for fighting SARS-CoV-2.
For this Special Issue of Computation, we invite researchers in the fields of computational drug discovery (including drug repurposing approaches), computational biology/genetics, virology, bioinformatics, and epidemiology to submit original research, short communications, and review articles related to the use of computation to fight SARS-CoV-2.

Study the articles and see which of the papers attracts your interests the more. Study the paper, download about three to four more of the papers from high profile publishers. Using one of the papers as a template, make attempt to start writing yours and download more materials as the need arises during the course of putting your writings together. Note that, when you start writing at first, you're merely making a skeletal draft that would need revisit to shape accordingly. Do that and be sure to use one of the reference managers for ease of your writing especially in managing your citations. Be sure to go from review to technical papers (high profile recent journals) before studying the technical aspects from books, internet sources or other related materials.

Hey Colleagues,
I hope you are healthy and safe during this quarantine.
For any machine learning model, we evaluate the performance of the model based on several points, and the loss is amongst them. We all know that an ML model:
1- Underfits, when the training loss is way more significant than the testing loss.
2- Overfits, when the training loss is way smaller than the testing loss.
3- Performs very well when the training loss and the testing loss are very close.
My question is directed to the third point. I am running a DL model (1D CNN), and I have the following results: (Note that, my initial loss was 2.5)
- Training loss = 0.55
- Testing Loss = 0.65
Nevertheless, I am not quite sure if the results are acceptable. Since the training loss is a bit high (0.5). I tried to lower the training loss by giving more complexity to the model (Increasing the number of CNN layers and MLP layers); however, this is a very tricky process as whenever I increase the complexity of the architecture, the testing loss increases, and the model easily overfits.
Finally, to say that our model performed very well, should we get a low training loss (say less than 0.1) or my case is still considered good too?
I look forward to hearing from you,
Thanks and regards,
Relevant answer
Answer
That seems quite close really.
If you want to really get them closer, you could add a Dropout/SpatialDropout layer, which would help prevent overfitting.

Hello,
If I am going to submit my work to a CS conference, and also make my Python code available publicly, is it absolutely necessary that I set seed in my Python code?
I ran an experiment, but I realized that I forgot to set seed. Will my publication be rejected at the conference because the seed is not set?
Thank you....
Relevant answer
Answer
You do not have to rerun the experiment. A referee or a researcher or other reader will want to. They cannot so precisely without the seed which you apparently forgot to set. What is the default seed? 0000? 1234? 3141? Send an email with a corrigendum immediately to the conference organisers stating the randomiser was not seeded, so the run can never be exactly replicated. As it is a conference paper and not a journal paper, they may let you get away with this corrigendum.

Hello
I have the following situation: I have a paper X about topic Y. For paper X I did a forward search with Web of Science (checking all new papers which cite paper X). Then I have downloaded all articles I have identified via forward search (approx. 1'000 Papers). Now I would like to sort these papers according to the frequency of specific keywords used.
For example: I have found paper Z via forward search (so paper Z cites paper X which is about topic Y). Now I want to check if paper Z is also concerned about topic Y or if it just refers to it in passing. For that I search for specific keywords which correspond to topic Y. According to the frequency of the specific keywords mentioned in paper X, I want to classify it in the category "relevant" or "not relevant". Now, how can I determine the threshold for the keywords? That is, if paper X only uses the specific keyword once it is most probably not relevant to topic Y. But if it mentions the specific keyword 20 times it is probably relevant for topic Y.
Is there a recognized methodology to determine or approximate a threshold for the keyword frequency which allows to distinguish if a paper is relevant to topic Y or not?
With this approach I hope to reduce the 1'000 papers to those which are about topic Y.

Can someone suggest a fully funded distance learning postgraduate diploma in computer science or related area? It would be a great help😊
Relevant answer
Answer
This will not be easy. The countries that still have tuition-free education are few and mostly found in Europe, you can see them here https://www.study.eu/article/study-in-europe-for-free-or-low-tuition-fees . If you come from a non-EU/EEA-country there often are fees, but sometimes lower, in these countries. For participation, you also have to qualify for a student visa for that country as a non-EU/EEA citizen, which involves showing that you have funds enough also for supporting yourself for living costs. In the category of non-tuition master programmes, there are almost no "distance educations" where you can remain in your home country. For master education, however, you can look for "Erasmus Mundus" university cooperations and master programmes. They often have, as part of the concept, some student places with a grant, enabling students from third countries to study,
For PhD candidate education, there are sometimes, as in Sweden, PhD student positions that you apply for, and if accepted, you have both tuition-free education and a monthly salary and a student visa for 4 years. it is like this in some other countries as well, as in other Nordic countries, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium. See this RG discussion https://www.researchgate.net/post/which_countries_offer_PhD_positions_as_paid_jobs_in_English
These PhD positions are advantageous, but not often "on distance", whatever that means. They can however sometimes be used in a half-flexible way. If you want a PhD "on distance", try Walden university
There is another option that may come close. The MOOC platforms have for long worked with nano-master, specialisations, micro-masters and similar course packages in interesting fields and certificates from these are often attractive for employers as a part of a CV. Not cost-free, but rather cheap, and fees are sometimes adapted after country economy. And, more and more, these platforms are offering also BSc and master programmes with ordinary credits and exams. Not free, but not very expensive, and with a lot of flexibility. begin here https://www.coursera.org/degrees and continue search other MOOC platforms as EdX, Futurelearn etc, and search them overall at classcentral.com.
There are also on some US universities online PhD and masters programmes, but they come with a cost - but sometimes cheaper than a campus option.

Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Jovanka,
at first glance, nothing seriously applicable comes to mind but just for exercise, and if you don't mind reducing the wide field of electronics to ordinary resistors:
You could define functions like
fs8(1.0, 1.2, 1.5, .. 8.2) which decide whether a set of resistors in series results in a total resistance of 8 Ohm or not. The arguments are taken from the E12 series, for example. The argument "1.0" has the value 1 if a resistor of 1.0 Ohm is present, and 0 otherwise. For example, fs8(0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0) = 1 because 1.2 + 6.8 = 8, or fs8(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1) = 0 because 8.2 != 8.
For such functions, you could sketch (part of) the binary tree, then the BDD, and at last the ZBDD.

Relevant answer
Answer
Foremost the syllabus must be flexible to adapt the current advances in Computer Science, such as React Js and the use of Node.
Topics must include:
(1) Programming Languages such as Python extended to it's useful applications such as in the field of Data Science, AI
(2) Operating Systems: Linux and how to use virtual machines (such as Ubuntu Studio, Kali linux) and bootable pendrive such as that of Tails OS
(3) Arduino Uno , Raspberry pi to learn how to make use of the programming (software)- hardware (physical objects) interaction[for example: making VPN router or EEG for measurement and recording],
(4) Background and history of Computer Science with the inclusion of the current syllabus but giving less priority to the old concepts which are replaced by better practical ones
(5) Students must be taught how to develop their own website, mobile application, software pc apps, and many other practical applications of Computer Science
(6) AI, data Science, machine learning
(7) GitHub should gain more priority and importance
The list isn't over yet, it will never be as the future technology keeps on evolving, for example quantum technology could be the next big thing that can be studied in Computer Science,
I think, The best Syllabus must include topics which allows Computer Science students to think for themselves and create a learning attitude which will allow them to learn different subtopics such as learning about Tensorflow , opencv and how Python can be used to analyse videos.
Also the syllabus must be designed with more emphasis on practical work for which rote learning is not possible and which allows every student after having completed the syllabus to have skills that are of practical value and in demand in the market.

In general the first principle is a basic assumption that cannot be deduced any further. Related to different fields of human activity there are different definitions of first principles, for example for engineering those are the laws of physics. Often great innovation in science/engineering happens when the new idea is not build on top of the current state of the art or commonly accepted technology. Instead the problem is initiated from those first principles or in other words "what we know for sure" and re-build from there.
So, what are the first principles known so far in computer vision, particularly in object detection. Are there fundamental "can do" and "cant do" that take its roots and proofs in computer science, physics, mathematics?

Answer
Dear Colleagues and Friends from RG,
The above discussion inspired me to formulate the following question:
How can artificial intelligence evolve into artificial consciousness in the future?
On the basis of the above considerations and conclusions from the discussion on interesting issues discussed, I formulated the following thesis that the unlimited development of artificial intelligence may lead in the future to the creation of artificial awareness by combining cybernetics, ICT information technologies, bioinformatics, cyberbergetics, neuroinformatics and through the development and implementation of achievements from range of machine learning technologies and other advanced data processing technologies Industry 4.0.
Below I have described the key determinants confirming the formulated research thesis. To the above discussion I would like to add the following conclusion formulated as a summary of my previous considerations on this topic: Axiomatic and technological implications of the possibility of building artificial awareness.
For several years, artificial intelligence researchers and scientists have been discussing the axiomatic and technological implications of building artificial consciousness, one of whose goals is to seek the answer to the question: Will artificial intelligence evolve into artificial consciousness in the future?
Technologies of advanced data processing Industry 4.0, including above all Learning machines and Artificial Intelligence is also used in the attempt to build machines equipped with the ability to self-improve the performed tasks and programmed activities.
Perhaps in the future there will be an attempt to build artificial awareness in which supercomputers will be equipped. In my opinion, consciousness can only be mathematically modeled in theory. Even if a mathematical model of artificial consciousness were built using ICT and Industry 4.0 and in the future Industry 5.0 and based on this model artificial intelligence would be created in quantum computers installed e.g. in autonomous robots, androids, it will still be only artificial intelligence without emotions and the essence of human consciousness. An analysis of the nature of human thoughts is necessary to distinguish between human intelligence and various artificial intelligence technologies being developed.
In advanced computerized systems of neural networks, artificial intelligence systems are created, whose task will be to solve tasks consisting of complex sequences of many algorithms and self-learning systems for solving complex problems with the help of many algorithms. In these systems, man will try to create a structure that solves complex analytical tasks and learns from his mistakes. The advantage of artificial intelligence systems over their creator, i.e. man, is to rely on a much smaller number of mistakes made during repeated processes of solving complex tasks and learning new complex formulas to apply specific increasingly complex algorithms. However, after developing these artificial intelligence systems and applying them in many computerized fields of modern economies, what will be the next stage of technological progress in this field?
Therefore, will the age of artificial intelligence and artificial consciousness come after the age of artificial intelligence? In my opinion, this is impossible. In my opinion, despite the rapid progress in the development and creation of new generations of artificial intelligence, it will never be possible to create an artificial creation that can be the equivalent of human intelligence taking into account human emotional intelligence and the specifics of human thoughts, human consciousness, human feelings. Therefore, the thesis can be formulated that in some respects artificial intelligence will probably never match human intelligence. The machine will be able to solve very complex problems and tasks but will not know why it does it, who it is, in what world it operates, it will not be able to realize its existence in the Universe etc. Machines in the form of autonomous androids can perform physically difficult works that a man cannot is able to perform.
Quantum computers equipped with Big Data Analytics will be able to solve analytical tasks many times faster than the most powerful human minds. However, they will not be aware of their existence. Human awareness of its existence has been evolved in millions of years of evolution of the human mind and also of human ancestors that preceded the human being, i.e. human-like primates belonging to primates. Human consciousness was created in a process of evolution lasting millions of years, during which the process of continuous interaction of a complex biological organism with the environment has evolved. While artificial intelligence is based on systems of neural networks in a simplified way, to a small extent mimicking the human central nervous system and the computational power of performing specific elementary tasks exceeding the analytical abilities of a human being, however, the level of complexity of the living organism of mammals is still many times higher than the most advanced computers.
In line with the above, in my opinion, the unlimited development of artificial intelligence may lead to the creation of artificial awareness in the future by combining cybernetics, ICT information technologies, bioinformatics, cyberbergetics, neuroinformatics and through the development and implementation of technology achievements learning machine and other advanced data processing technologies Industry 4.0.
In view of the above, the following question arises:
Will artificial neural structures become such advanced artificial intelligence that artificial consciousness will arise? Theoretically, you can consider this type of projects, however, to verify it realistically, you would need to create this type of artificial neural structures. Research on the human brain shows that it is a very complex and not fully understood neural structure. The brain has various centers, areas that manage the functioning of specific organs and processes of the human body. In addition, consciousness is also complex and consists of elements of emotional, abstract, creative intelligence, etc., which also function in separate sectors of the human brain.
Best wishes.

There are a lot of problems in medicine that needs the newest technologies in computer science fields like Machine Learning and Deep Learning to solve them.
Can anyone mention some of these problems that are unsolved till now?
Relevant answer
Answer
Let's start with a field that I know the best: biosignals processing, clarification, and prediction. There are many unresolved problems like
* Prediction of arrhythmias
* Prediction of epileptic seizures
* Reconstruction of physiological interdependencies of various physiological processes using biosignals.
* Reconstruction of physiological paths in the brain from biosignals.
* Assessing the health condition of people using biosignals.
We can do the following research
* Data mining for disease-genome dependencies from available databases.
* Prediction of disease spreads using internet searches.
* Assessment of the population health using internet searches.
* Cross AI methods with deep knowledge of complex systems theory and apply it to medicine -- this is my area of research.
* Study and predict drug interactions and side effects in patients. This will save a lot of unnecessary suffering in those using medical drugs.
* The above can be supported by an active search through all available data for possible, future drug interactions prior to their application to patients.
* Such research can help medical doctors to avoid deadly or highly damaging drug interactions. Each patient reacts differently to the same drugs! We need to know why and especially when it happens!
* Start development of advanced AI methods tailored towards the needs of bio-medicine.
All the above depends on how reliable databases of biosignals, medical records, bio-imaging, laboratory results, and many other database build.
When you want to have successful research in the field of AI, perfect databases that are open-access are a must. We have an extreme shortage of those databases. You can build a very successful carrier by building such a database(s). :-)

Dear Friends,
Can anyone answer this question that has been perplexed me for years? What kind of scientific discipline blatantly violates basic principles or proven rules of scientific method? What kind of scientist fiercely defends such blatant violation of basic principles or proven rules of scientific method?
Last time a scientific discipline that blatantly violated scientific method was before 17th century, when researchers fiercely defended geocentric paradox in violation of scientific method. In their defense, most of the basic rules and principles of scientific method were not yet known or properly established. Most of the basic rules and principles of scientific method were formed and which have been perfected since 17th century by many great philosophers of science and brilliant scientists, particularly based on valuable lessons and insights learned from the painful experiences gained from subverting geocentric paradox, which transformed the basic science from fake science into a real science.
What is a scientific discipline? A discipline can be a scientific discipline, if and only if the BoK (Body of Knowledge) in all the published textbooks and accepted research publications for the discipline must have been acquired and accumulated without violating basic principles and rules of scientific method. The purpose of modern scientific method is perfecting the quality of knowledge by finding and eliminating imperfections and/or anomalies. Scientific method doesn’t offer a recipe, hints, and guidelines or impose restrictions for doing research to acquire new knowledge, but provide tools to keep scientific research in the right path by detecting mistakes that can divert research efforts into a wrong path.
Each piece of knowledge in the BoK must be supported by falsifiable proof (backed by evidence and facts), where each piece of knowledge and its proof is open for challenge and perfected by rigorous testing and empirical validation. The research community in 17th blatantly violated basic scientific rule, when they tried to suppress and tacitly sabotage efforts to expose 2300-year-old unproven flawed presumption (i.e. the Earth is at the center) in it’s vary foundation.
Except computer science, I could not find any evidence that any other scientific discipline violated scientific method so blatantly. It is beyond my comprehension, why researchers of computer science fiercely defending such blatant violation of basic principles or proven rules of scientific method.
Unfortunately, software researchers acquired so much invalid BoK by blatantly violating scientific method. Since it is impossible to solve any problem by relying on invalid knowledge, software researchers concluded that it is impossible to solve certain problems (e.g. real-CBD/CBE or real computer intelligence). But it is not hard to solve those problems by acquired relevant valid knowledge. Please refer to ValidKnowledge.pdf for more information.
P.S: I also failed to find a real scientist, who can understand code of conduct for real scientists: CodeOfConduct.pdf

Hi, I'm working on sequence alignment algorithms. My background is Computer Science. Given two sequences, what could be the max length of a gap and how many insertions/deletion at one stretch I may consider? I think more than one insertion/deletion at one stretch is useless...? My algorithm will accept a large text file, and report locations in the file where the best regions are found.
For example:
Query: ATCGACTAACCA
File: TCAGCTTCCAGCTA
When I executed these two strings on ebi.ac.uk, I got the following result, 7 pairs match.
EMBOSS_001 A T C G A C T A A C C A ---- EMBOSS_001 - T C A G C T - T C C A G C T A
However, my algorithm reports an 8 pairs match, which one is better? Please suggest. Many Thanks in advance...
Query A T C G A C T A A C C A File: - T C A G C T T C C A G C T A
Relevant answer
Answer
With classical biological sequence alignment algorithms such as blast, psiblast and fastA, the number of gaps inserted is controlled by two parameters, by the gap insertion penalty and gap extension penalty, which contribute to the alignment score. A high gap insertion penalty and low gap extension penalty gives preference to few large gaps rather then many short gaps.

Being a computer science student, I don't know much about statistical testing. However, recently, a lot of work has reported statistical validation of their result. In machine learning-based prediction of effector proteins, how do you apply statistical tests to validate the result?
Relevant answer
Answer
For statistical learning methods like regression and discriminant anaysis, it is easy to validate results by checking underlying assumptions (white noise in residuals, normality., et.c.). For machine learning methods which are assumption free, you can use validation methods as @drsharma mentioned (for a great introductory book see: Introduction to Statistical Learning, Springer). If you want to compare and validate performance of several prediction models, you can use pairwise comparison tests.

I completed a study in which participants experienced two developed interaction conditions and completed the same questionnaire post each condition. I am trying to analyse the data to look for correlations between question answers and whether the condition had any significant effect on answers.
I have performed a Wilcoxon signed rank test which showed no statistically significant difference in answers between the two conditions. However, I have also performed a spearman correlation test which showed some statistically significant differences. This contradiction has me a bit confused.
I have been doing a lot of reading online to work out the tests that i could use. If anyone could help shed some light on this it would be most appreciated.

It is my understanding that machine learning approaches perform best for predicting secondary structures in proteins ( having prediction accuracy of up to 80% ). However, protein structure prediction with ML relies on finding homologous regions established from previously determined structures. So, it won't work for proteins for which no known homologues exist. My background is computer science and, not being from the field of biochemistry, I wonder whether non-ML methods like improved Chou-Fasman and GOR are still being worked on.

During the research process in computer sciences, we need a set of tools such as:
- IDE for algorithms coding
- LaTex editor for writing papers
- Statistical toolkit for experiments
- Some CAD tools for design
From your point of view, which tools should I use for research in computer sciences? Could you please, provide examples of these tools?
Best regards.
Relevant answer
Answer
IDE would be an overview of multiple tools. Off hand, I can think of:
a. Choose an optimized compiler. Its important to make sure you have the correct flags;
b. The editor should be helpful, but must not get in your way. I like vi and emacs.
c. Use of a good debugger is highly recommended.
d. Use of memory checking tools such as Valgrind is recommended.
e. A good profiler will inform you about bottlenecks in your code.
f. I found that a paper based log helps a lot. You may wish to have your log in tex if easier.
For documenting, you can use MS Word, but of course TeX is free and very versatile.
Often, design comes from some diagrams or imaging data. You need a good image segmentation tool, which should also mesh the model for you.

Maybe few of these articles can help :
In addition, I want to emphasize that I have allready wrote 2 papers regarding systematic literature reivew using PRISMA framework in engineering and waiting for reply from the reviewers. There are currently exponential number of papers in Software Engineering and I bet few of them are using PRISMA framework. Try searching scholar with boolean search like: "software engineering" AND "PRISMA" AND .....
You can add up the statements to get more specific search strings that are close to your research area.
POINTER: Don't get to attached to PRISMA strict methodology, you can shape the flow diagram of your systematic review as you wish, but pay attention to Inclusion and Exclusion criteria, because the extraction and including paper in your corpus can be vital for systematic assessment, hence, it can be prone to bias.
Hope I was somewhat helpful.
