Here, the issue is that then the curve may not really follow the data points, i.e., the curve fit would not correspond to the biological response it is intended to model and thus summary data derived from the curve would not be correct.
All these assessments have a weightage and are made of several data points (Examinations).
[x.sub.n]], which is a set of data, where xt refers to the data point from 1 to n.
In the GHC building, a single AHU contains over 150 data points. To acquire SADP data point, the data points were filtered by object (analog input) and by unit (inch WC).
* Uses the model to predict what the next data point should be; and
Based on the local density [[rho].sub.i] and distance [[delta].sub.i] for each data point, users can explicitly choose the number and the center of the cluster on the Decision Graph.
More specifically, users can move mouse to look at the detail of each data point in order to get a preliminary understanding.
For every new incoming data point, it's important to divide it into one of the three groups: Cluster points: they are the duplicates or extremely similar to particular data points in a cluster inside a specified threshold.
For example, if you wanted to calculate the one-month rate of change for July 2013 you would divide the data point from July 2013 by the data point from July 2012.
Each thread within a thread block is responsible for loading the coordinates of one data point from global memory to shared memory and then computing the distances and inverse weights to those data points stored in current shared memory.
Figure 2 shows the approach to transform ordinary data point to Fuzzy data point (FDP).
Provided there is sufficient data, we expect each data point and its neighbors to lie on or close to a locally linear patch of the manifold.
