Localized Epidemiological Agent-Based Simulation (ABS)

Epidemiological modeling is used, under certain assumptions, to represent the spread of a disease within a population. Information generated by these models can then be applied to inform public health practices and mitigate risk. To provide useful and actionable preparedness information to administrators and policy makers, epidemiological models must be formulated to model highly localized environments such as office buildings, campuses, or long-term care facilities. In this paper, a highly configurable agent-based simulation (ABS) framework designed for localized environments is proposed. This ABS provides information about risk and the effects of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, as well as detailed control over the rapidly evolving epidemiological characteristics of COVID-19. Simulation results can inform decisions made by facility administrators and be used as inputs for a complementary decision support system. The application of our ABS to our research lab environment as a proof of concept demonstrates the configurability and insights achievable with this form of modeling, with future work focused on extensibility and integration with decision support.

Dynamic Data Discretization

Dynamic discretization toolkit in Python based on the work by Fenton and Neil. This library provides classes for performing both static and dynamic discretization on data, as well as a handful of custom Bayesian networks defined using PyAgrum for testing. There is additional functionality for visualization of the resulting discretizations.

Adversarial and Adaptive TM operator for HDR images

This work addresses tone mapping, a common approach to convert high dynamic range (HDR) images into low dynamic range (LDR) images. We approach this problem by using adaptive tone mapping. We propose to deploy a conditional generative adversarial networks to build an adversarial and adaptive tone mapping operator (adTMO) that converts HDR into LDR images. We use an objective quality metric called the Tone Mapped Image Quality Index (TMQI) to evaluate our adTMO. Trained with 256∗256 images, adTMO is able to generate 256∗256 and high-resolution 1024∗2048 LDR images. Given 1024∗2048 HDR images, TMQI of the generated LDR images reaches the value of 0.90±0.06, which outperforms all other contemporary tone mapping operators.

Cross-Spectrum Thermal Face Pattern Generator

This work addresses two image-to-image conversions: conversion of a visible face image into a thermal face image (V2T), and one thermal face image into another one given a different target temperature (T2T). We propose to use conditional generative adversarial networks (cGAN) with cGAN loss, perceptual loss, and temperature loss to solve the conversion tasks. In our experiment, we used Carl and SpeakingFaces Databases. Frèchet Inception Distance (FID) is used to evaluate the generated images. As well, face recognition was applied to assess the performance of our models. For the V2T task, the FID of the generated thermal images reached a low value of 57.3. For the T2T task, we achieved a rank-1 face recognition rate of 91.0%.

Causal Networks and Uncertainty Metrics

The "Causal Networks and Uncertainty Metrics" software package is a C++ executable that can process data stored in the format of decision diagrams. Various structures related to graphical uncertainty models, such as the large arrays that denote conditional probability tables and distributions, are stored in the format of decision diagrams. Decision diagrams carry the advantage of exploiting the symmetry present during context specific variable independence. Commands are present that can carry out uncertainty inference in the following metrics: point probabilities; triangular fuzzy probabilities; probability intervals; and Dempster-Shafer models.
