In this paper, we address the problem of computing interpretable solutions to reinforcement learning (RL) problems. To this end, we propose a search algorithm over a space of simple losed-form formulas that are used to rank actions. We formalize the search for a high-performance policy as a multi-armed bandit problem where each arm corresponds to a candidate policy canonically represented by its shortest formula-based representation. Experiments, conducted on standard benchmarks, show that this approach manages to determine both efficient and interpretable solutions. [less ▲]

Little by little, nanotechnology has emerged amid enormous anticipations and fantastic promises of new materials, aspiring to manipulate our world “atom by atom.” While these grand visions continue to capture the imaginations of various audiences—and continue to be contested, as well—nanotechnology has developed into more than that. During the last two decades, many research programs and industrial R&D expenditures have resulted in actual products and tangible innovations. Nanotechnology, it seems, is expanding. But what does it mean to say that nanotechnology is expanding? [less ▲]

Background Studies in population genetics are mainly based on the analysis of genetic variations among different populations. With the advent of advanced genotyping technology, large number of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) can be used to capture the underlying population variations. Iterative pruning principal component analysis (ipPCA) is a very powerful tool to cluster subpopulations based on their SNP profiles. However, when several similar populations are considered in the analysis, differentiating these populations can become very challenging. Haplotype has been known to capture more segregation information and higher power than SNP but due to high inference complexity, this concept has not been widely used. Recently, haplotype sharing (HS) was reported as a good alternative method to evaluate variation among populations. HS interrogates the entire genotyping without estimating haplotype block, making it computational efficient, yet retaining population profile. Adopting HS technique and introducing a new haplotype encoding as the input to ipPCA to perform population clustering can yield very good outcomes. Results In this study we transformed an indigenous Thai SNP genotyping data, obtained from Pan Asian SNP consortium, into encoded haplotype profiles. The dataset include 13 indigenous populations (245 individuals) composing of approximately 54K SNPs for each individual. To do this, an encoded haplotype matrix was constructed by inferring overlapping haplotype based on sliding window approach in BEAGLE, an efficient haplotype inference tool. We fed this encoded haplotype matrix to ipPCA to cluster these individuals into sub-groups using only their genetic profiles. We compared the results obtained from standard protocol of ipPCA with the one that use the encoded haplotype matrix in terms of numbers of clustered subpopulations as well as the accuracy to correctly assign an individual to a correct subpopulation. Using the encoded haplotype matrix as input to ipPCA rendered the exact 13 subpopulations to be clustered with 99.18% of individual assignment accuracy, whereas the conventional ipPCA identified only 10 subpopulations with 93.47% of individual assignment accuracy. Conclusions Our result demonstrated the great potential of using the encoded haplotype matrix with ipPCA for population genetics studies. This new protocol can promote the clustering of individuals using only their genetic profiles. [less ▲]

Tendinopathies are common and frequently resisting to actual conservative measures. The aim of this review was to gather the actual knowledge concerning the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment in tendon lesion. However, given the relative recent knowledge about PRP in sports medical, the studies could not yet reproduce the beneficial effects obtained in-vitro. Most studies about the subject indeed show an improvement in symptoms after PRP treatment but, the few studies of high level of evidence are contradictory. Therefore, there is no evidence of formally advise the use of PRP in the treatment of tendinopathy. So the main research field in the close future will have to determine a standard for the manufacture of PRP and the protocols of the future studies in order to be able to compare them. [less ▲]

The object of this thesis was to investigate the nonverbal emotional competencies, and more specifically the ones that are related to emotional facial expression, in two clinical populations that present serious interpersonal and emotional problems: people with alcohol-dependence, divided in this work into two groups according to Cloninger’s alcoholism typology, and people with traumatic brain injury. We realised a series of studies that investigate the different aspects of emotional facial expression processing –its reception, its encoding, and its experience. The results of these studies have indicated that patients of these two populations (in alcohol dependence, particularly type II alcohol dependent patients) presented problems in the perception of emotional facial expression (cognitive and emotional response) and the expression facial of the emotion (emotional expression globally less positive and less intense). We also showed problems in the experience of emotion in patients with traumatic brain injury (no induction of the subjective emotion of anger when adopting the emotional facial expression of anger). The processes underlying these altered emotional compentencies are discussed. [less ▲]

This paper presents the design, fabrication and preliminary characterization of highly sensitive MEMS-based Xylophone Bar Magnetometers (XBMs) realized in imec’s poly-SiGe MEMS technology. Key for our Lorentz force driven capacitively sensed resonant sensor are the combination of reasonably high Q-factor and conductivity of imec’s poly-SiGe, our optimized multiphysics sensor design targeting the maximization of the Q-factor in a wide temperature range as well as our proprietary monolithic above-CMOS integration and packaging schemes. Prototypes 3-axis devices were fabricated and characterized. We present optical vibrometer and electrical S-parameter measurements of XBMs performed in vacuum with a reference magnet at increasing sensor separation. The optical oscillation amplitude is well correlated with the magnetic field amplitude. The electrical 2-port measurements, 1st port as Lorentz force actuator and 2nd port as capacitive sensor, also reproduces the designed magnetic field dependence. This opens the way towards the on-chip integration of small footprint extremely sensitive magnetometers. [less ▲]
