Detecting Groundwater Pollution Source Through Simulated Evolution

I have not yet seen an application of evolutionary computation like this one: Tracking groundwater pollution to its source. But it seems they also apply other kinds of soft computing (neural networks and simulated annealing).


They point out that reliable and accurate estimation of unknown groundwater pollution sources remains a challenge because of the uncertainties involved and the lack of adequate observation data in most cases. The non-unique nature of the identification results is also an issue in finding the original source of a pollutant. They have tested the validity of different optimization algorithms including a genetic algorithm, an artificial neural network and simulated annealing and hybrid methods. All of these methods essentially process available data including pollutant concentrations and how these change over time and any monitoring data to home in on a potential source. The benefit of using such algorithms is that as more information becomes available another iteration will take investigators closer to the source.

It seems an interesting application of artificial intelligence.

When you finally get your own happiness, you will understand the previous sadness is kind of treasure, which makes you better to hold and cherish the people you love Tibia Gold, we all live in the past. We take a minute to know someone, one hour to like someone, and one day to love someone, but the whole life to forget someone Tibia coins, Love makes man grow up or sink down Tibia Gold.

Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers.Pray for powers equal to Buy rs gold your tasks.Then the doing of work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle, Fear not that the life shall come to an end, but rather fear that Runescape Money it shall never have a beginning,. At twenty years of age Runescape2 Money., the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment.
