    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; employee selection decision making; employee data collection methods; hiring practices; self-efficacy; causal attribution; behavioral intention; agency; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Despite the great advances science has made in developing selection decision aids practitioners’ generally remain reluctant to adopt them. This phenomenon is considered today one of the greatest gaps in industrial, work and organizational psychology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Universal Instruction Selection

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gabriel Hjort Blindell; KTH.; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; instruction selection; code generation; compilers; constraint programming; combinatorial optimization; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : In code generation, instruction selection chooses instructions to implement a given program under compilation, global code motion moves computations from one part of the program to another, and block ordering places program blocks in a consecutive sequence. Local instruction selection chooses instructions one program block at a time while global instruction selection does so for the entire function. READ MORE

  3. 3. Detecting Signatures of Selection within the Dog Genome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Abhirami Ratnakumar; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dog; evolution; domestication; PRDM9; recombination; positive selection; selective sweep;

    Abstract : Deciphering the genetic basis of phenotypic diversity is one of the central aims of biological research. Domestic animals provide a unique opportunity for making substantial progress towards this goal. READ MORE

  4. 4. Context-Aware Optimized Service Selection with Focus on Consumer Preferences

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Jens Kirchner; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOC; Service Selection; Service Recommendation; Information Supply Chains; Machine Learning; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Cloud computing, mobile computing, Service-Oriented Computing (SOC), and Software as a Service (SaaS) indicate that the Internet emerges to an anonymous service market where service functionality can be dynamically and ubiquitously consumed. Among functionally similar services, service consumers are interested in the consumption of the services which perform best towards their optimization preferences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Costs of foraging in a dry tropical environment

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Mary Molokwu; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; foraging behavior; seasonality; predation risk; granivorous birds; food availability; water; temperature; savannah; dry tropics; energy; secondary compounds; diet selection;

    Abstract : This study evaluates the costs associated with foraging for birds in a savannah woodland area in central Nigeria. Specifically, it looks at the following questions: 1) how does seasonal variability in food and water availability affect the value of resources to birds in dry environments? 2) Does proximity to water affect foraging decisions? What implication will this have in the management of savannah birds? 3) Are tropical birds mostly affected by metabolic or predation costs? 4) What factors affect diet selection in birds and how? 5) How are birds adapted to hot dry environments? I carried out experiments in the field and in an aviary and provided artificial food patches, consisting of feeding trays with seeds mixed in sand or pebbles (in the aviary study). READ MORE
