Paper on Hybrid Multi-Task Learning-Based Response Surface Modeling Published in JMS

A paper entitled “hybrid multi-task learning-based response surface modeling in manufacturing” is recently published in the Journal of Manufacturing Systems. The paper was co-authored by Yuhang Yang and Chenhui Shao. This paper developed a hybrid multi-task learning-based method tocost-effectively model the response surfaces of multiple similar-but-not-identical manufacturing processes. The method was evaluated using a simulation-based numerical […]

Yuquan’s Work on Multi-Objective Optimization Published in AIMS MBE

Ultrasonic metal welding (UMW) is a solid-state joining method with various industrial applications including battery assembly, automotive body construction, and electronic packaging. Among the advantages of UMW over conventional fusion welding are the ability to join dissimilar metals, reduced energy consumption and short welding time. Despite of its numerous advantages, this technique has a relative […]

Siyuan and Yuquan’s Work on Fault Diagnosis Published in IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics

Fault diagnosis for rolling elements in rotating machinery persistently receives high research interest due to the said machinery’s prevalence in a broad range of applications. State-of-the-art methods in such setups focus on effective identification of faults that usually involve a single component while rejecting noise from limited sources. This paper studies the data-based diagnosis of […]

Boge and Siyuan’s Work on Human Action Detection and Monitoring Published in Computers in Industry

This paper presents a new approach for temporal detection of short human activities in untrimmed videos. Most present methods for temporal action detection, to our best knowledge, are trained on public action datasets that feature actions spanning up to tens and hundreds of seconds. However, it is often desired in manufacturing, transportation, and other safety-critical […]
