    ‘The Greeks Call It _Horme_ ’: Hobbes’ anti-Aristotelian account of human action.Erfan Xia - 2023 - History of European Ideas 49 (8):1316-1331.
    This essay reads Hobbes’ account of human action against Aristotle’s accounts of animal motion and human action, thus offering a new perspective for understanding Hobbes’ account and illuminating a neglected aspect of Hobbes’ relationship to Aristotle. I argue that the basic structure of Hobbes’ account is indebted to Aristotle’s account of animal motion, except that Hobbes purges the teleological elements from his predecessor and presents a picture that is mechanistic and explicitly deterministic. Moreover, while Aristotle introduces ‘deliberation’ as a way (...)

    New Relations and Separations of Conjectures About Incompleteness in the Finite Domain.Erfan Khaniki - 2022 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 87 (3):912-937.
    In [20] Krajíček and Pudlák discovered connections between problems in computational complexity and the lengths of first-order proofs of finite consistency statements. Later Pudlák [25] studied more statements that connect provability with computational complexity and conjectured that they are true. All these conjectures are at least as strong as $\mathsf {P}\neq \mathsf {NP}$ [23–25].One of the problems concerning these conjectures is to find out how tightly they are connected with statements about computational complexity classes. Results of this kind had been (...)

    A phenomenological analysis of teachers’ perceptions of ethical factors affecting the teacher–student relationships.Farshad Ghasemi - 2022 - Ethics and Behavior 32 (6):549-561.
    ABSTRACT As a culture-specific phenomenon, academic dishonesty remains an under-researched domain. The purpose of this study was to voice teachers’ perceptions of: the influential factors contributing to AD, the consequences of AD for the quality of teacher–student relationships, and the specific strategies for regulating TSR. Using a qualitative phenomenological design, we attempted to present a detailed description of teachers’ lived experiences regarding the above aims. The participants were English language and Mathematics teachers with different personal and professional characteristics working in (...)

    New Approach in Fixed Resource Allocation and Target Setting Using Data Envelopment Analysis with Common Set of Weights.Marzieh Ghasemi, Mohammad Reza Mozaffari, Farhad Hosseinzadeh Lotfi, Mohsen Rostamy Malkhalifeh & Mohammad Hasan Behzadi - 2022 - Complexity 2022:1-11.
    One of the mathematical programming techniques is data envelopment analysis, which is used for evaluating the efficiency of a set of similar decision-making units. Fixed resource allocation and target setting with the help of DEA is a subject that has gained much attention from researchers. A new model was proposed by determining a common set of weights. All DMUs were involved with the aim of achieving higher efficiency in every DMU after the procedure. The minimum resources and targets allocated to (...)

    Teachers’ demographic and occupational attributes predict feelings of hopelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.Farshad Ghasemi - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many emotional consequences for teachers, including feelings of isolation, loneliness, and hopelessness. However, evidence on the prevalence of hopelessness and the associated factors in teachers during the pandemic is limited. The purpose of this research was to examine the prevalence of hopelessness in public school teachers and identify risk factors associated with it. A sample of 168 teachers aged 25–49 years participated in the study by completing the Socio-Demographic Questionnaire, the Beck (...)

    Classification with NormalBoost: Case Study Traffic Sign Classification.Erfan Davami & Hasan Fleyeh - 2012 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 21 (1):25-43.
    . NormalBoost is a new boosting algorithm which is capable of classifying a multi-dimensional binary class dataset. It adaptively combines several weak classifiers to form a strong classifier. Unlike many boosting algorithms which have high computation and memory complexities, NormalBoost is capable of classification with low complexity. The purpose of this paper is to present NormalBoost as a framework which establishes a platform to solve classification problems. The approach was tested with a dataset which was extracted automatically from real-world traffic (...)

    Eigen Based Traffic Sign Recognition Which Aids In Achieving Intelligent Speed Adaptation.Erfan Davami & Hasan Fleyeh - 2011 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 20 (2):129-145.
    Speed is one of the major factors by which the traffic safety is affected. If the speed limit traffic signs on the road are recognised and displayed to a driver, this will be a motivation to keep the vehicle's speed within the permitted range. The purpose of this paper is to investigate Eigen-based traffic sign recognition which can aid in the development of Intelligent Speed Adaptation. This system is based on invoking the PCA technique to detect the unknown speed limit (...)

    Segmentation of Fingerprint Images Based on Bi-level Combination of Global and Local Processing.Erfan Davami, Mark Dougherty, Diala Jomaa & Hasan Fleyeh - 2012 - Journal of Intelligent Systems 21 (2):97-120.
    . This paper presents a new approach to segment low quality fingerprint images which are collected by low quality fingerprint readers. Images collected using such readers are easy to collect but difficult to segment. The proposed approach is based on combining global and local processing to achieve segmentation of fingerprint images. On the global level, the fingerprint is located and extracted from the rest of the image by using a global thresholding followed by dilation and edge detection of the largest (...)

    Voice and power: Feminist governance as transnational justice in the globalized value chain.Fauzia Erfan Ahmed - 2018 - Business Ethics: A European Review 27 (4):324-336.
    Women constitute the majority of workers in global value chains (GVCs), yet few GVC scholars focus on the governance of gender. Based on an investigation (2013–2017) started after the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh, this article presents “voice to the subordinate strata” as the first principle of feminist governance in the GVC. Findings reveal the matrix of power, which includes the International Labour Organization and the state that underpins the political economy of the Southern factory. This study provides a transformative (...)

    This paper presents a new boosting algorithm called NormalBoost which is capable of classifying a multi-dimensional binary class dataset. It adaptively combines several weak classifiers to form a strong classifier. Unlike many boosting algorithms which have high computation and memory complexities, NormalBoost is capable of classification with low complexity. Since NormalBoost assumes the dataset to be continuous, it is also noise resistant because it only deals with the means and standard deviations of each dimension. Experiments conducted to evaluate its performance (...)

    Illusory intuitions: Challenging the claim of non-exclusivity.Simon J. Handley, Omid Ghasemi & Michal Bialek - 2023 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 46:e125.
    A person who arrives at correct solutions via false premises is right and wrong simultaneously. Similarly, a person who generates “logical intuitions” through superficial heuristics can likewise be right and wrong at the same time. However, heuristics aren't guaranteed to deliver the logical solution, so the claim that system 1 can routinely produce the alleged system 2 response is unfounded.

    An empirical investigation of the Gamer's Dilemma: a mixed methods study of whether the dilemma exists.Paul Formosa, Thomas Montefiore, Mitchell McEwan & Omid Ghasemi - 2023 - Behaviour and Information Technology 43 (3):571-589.
    The Gamer’s Dilemma challenges us to justify the moral difference between enacting virtual murder and virtual child molestation in video games. The Dilemma relies for its argumentative force on the claim that there is an intuitive moral difference between these acts, with the former intuited as morally acceptable and the latter as morally unacceptable. However, there has been no empirical investigation of these claims. To explore these issues, we developed an experimental survey study in which participants were asked to reflect (...)
