A Novel Visual Fault Detection and Classification System for Semiconductor Manufacturing Using Stacked Hybrid Convolutional Neural Networks. (arXiv:1911.11250v1 [cs.LG])

Automated visual inspection in the semiconductor industry aims to detect and classify manufacturing defects utilizing modern image processing techniques. While an earliest possible detection of defect patterns allows quality control and automation of manufacturing chains, manufacturers benefit from an increased yield and reduced manufacturing costs. Since classical image processing systems are limited in their ability…

Hexagonal Image Processing in the Context of Machine Learning: Conception of a Biologically Inspired Hexagonal Deep Learning Framework. (arXiv:1911.11251v1 [cs.LG])

Inspired by the human visual perception system, hexagonal image processing in the context of machine learning deals with the development of image processing systems that combine the advantages of evolutionary motivated structures based on biological models. While conventional state of the art image processing systems of recording and output devices almost exclusively utilize square arranged…

Internet of things-based (IoT) inventory monitoring refrigerator using arduino sensor network. (arXiv:1911.11265v1 [eess.SY])

This study presents a system that combines a conventional refrigerator, microcontrollers and a smart phone to create an inventory monitoring that can monitor the stocks inside the refrigerator wirelessly by accessing an Android application.

Manifold Gradient Descent Solves Multi-Channel Sparse Blind Deconvolution Provably and Efficiently. (arXiv:1911.11167v1 [stat.ML])

Multi-channel sparse blind deconvolution, or convolutional sparse coding, refers to the problem of learning an unknown filter by observing its circulant convolutions with multiple input signals that are sparse. This problem finds numerous applications in signal processing, computer vision, and inverse problems. However, it is challenging to learn the filter efficiently due to the bilinear…

Classical vs. quantum satisfiability in linear constraint systems modulo an integer. (arXiv:1911.11171v1 [quant-ph])

A system of linear constraints can be unsatisfiable and yet admit a solution in the form of quantum observables whose correlated outcomes satisfy the constraints. Recently, it has been claimed that such a satisfiability gap can be demonstrated using tensor products of generalized Pauli observables in odd dimensions. We provide an explicit proof that no…

Geometry of Localized Effective Theory, Exact Semi-classical Approximation and Algebraic Index. (arXiv:1911.11173v1 [math.QA])

In this paper we propose a general framework to study the quantum geometry of $\sigma$-models when they are effectively localized to small quantum fluctuations around constant maps. Such effective theories have surprising exact descriptions at all loops in terms of target geometry and can be rigorously formulated. We illustrate how to turn the physics idea…

DeepJSCC-f: Deep Joint-Source Channel Coding of Images with Feedback. (arXiv:1911.11174v1 [cs.IT])

We consider wireless transmission of images in the presence of channel output feedback. From a Shannon theoretic perspective feedback does not improve the asymptotic end-to-end performance, and separate source coding followed by capacity achieving channel coding achieves the optimal performance. Although it is well known that separation is not optimal in the practical finite blocklength…

Modified HLLC-VOF solver for incompressible two-phase fluid flows. (arXiv:1911.11234v1 [physics.comp-ph])

A modified HLLC-type contact preserving Riemann solver for incompressible two-phase flows using the artificial compressibility formulation is presented. Here, the density is omitted from the pressure evolution equation. Also, while calculating the eigenvalues and eigenvectors, the variations of the volume fraction is taken into account. Hence, the equations for the intermediate states and the intermediate…
