Assumption University is a private Catholic university with three campuses in the Hua Mak, Central World Plaza in downtown Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi areas of Samut Prakan Province, Thailand. The university is led by the Brothers of St. Gabriel, who have been active in education in Thailand since 1901. Assumption University is noted for attracting large numbers of foreign students from countries including Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and other Asian countries. Students from China make up the largest number of foreign students. There are exchange students from the United States and Europe. Assumption University is also the first international university in Thailand. Wikipedia.

Based on a review of previous studies, important variables associated with the use of personal Internet Banking services are identified in this paper. Using data collected through a questionnaire, statistically significant associations among these variables are determined. The findings of the study confirm significant associations reported in previous studies and identify significant associations among an individual's work position; personal characteristics of users; the influence of peers on users; the importance of trust; and the emphasis placed by users on personal relationships with banks. Conclusions are drawn which are of practical use for those responsible for the development of personal Internet Banking services. Copyright © 2011, IGI Global. Source

The aim of this paper is to develop a comprehensive study of the geometry involved in combining Bregman divergences with pooling operators over closed convex sets in a discrete probabilistic space. A particular connection we develop leads to an iterative procedure, which is similar to the alternating projection procedure by Csiszár and Tusnády. Although such iterative procedures are well studied over much more general spaces than the one we consider, only a few authors have investigated combining projections with pooling operators. We aspire to achieve here a comprehensive study of such a combination. Besides, pooling operators combining the opinions of several rational experts allows us to discuss possible applications in multi-expert reasoning. © 2014 by the authors. Source

The use of hydrocolloid gel matrices to encapsulate probiotics is of interest due to their gentle and simplicity of gel formation as well as mild condition used. This technique enhances the viability of entrapped cells during the product shelf life at least above therapeutic minimum level as well as in the gastrointestinal tract to ensure the health benefits of consumers. This review describes the advantages of microencapsulation, hydrocolloid gel matrices such as alginate, carrageenan and whey protein, microencapsulation processes, special treatments for further improvement in encapsulation efficiency of gel matrices as well as food applications of microencapsulated probiotics.

Outpost Vector model synthesizes new vectors from two classes of data at their boundary to maintain the shape of the current system in order to increase the level of accuracy of classification. This paper presents an incremental learning preprocessor for Feed-forward Neural Network (FFNN) which utilizes Outpost Vector model to improve the level of accuracy of classification of both new data and old data. The preprocessor generates outpost vectors from selected new samples, selected prior samples, both samples, or generates no outpost vector at all. After that, they are included in the final training set, as well as selected new samples and selected prior samples, based on the specified parameters. The final training set is then trained with FFNN. The whole process is repeated again when new samples are sufficiently collected in order to learn newer knowledge. The experiments are conducted with a 2-dimension partition problem. The distribution of training and test samples is created in a limited location of a 2-dimension donut ring. The context of the problem is assumed to shift 45 in counterclockwise direction. There are two classes of data which are represented as 0 and 1. Every consecutive partition is set to have different class of both new data and old data. The experimental results show that the use of outpost vectors generated from either selected new samples or selected prior or both samples helps improve the level of accuracy of classification for all data. The run-time complexity of the algorithm presents that the overhead from outpost vector generation process is insignificant and is compensated by the improved level of accuracy of classification. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

I consider offshoring in the low-technology and high-technology sectors in a host country. I build a model in which the occurrence of offshoring is determined by both the skill level of unskilled workers and the level of 'offshoring facilitators'. Offshoring factilitators are factors or activities that promote offshoring in the high-technology sector, such as technological advancement, economic integration, services liberalization and harmonization of rules and regulations. If the level of offshoring facilitators is low, a rise in the skill level can attract offshoring to the low-technology sector but not to the high-technology sector. A rise in the level of offshoring facilitators can attract offshoring to the high-technology sector. Because offshoring in the high-technology sector provides jobs to skilled workers, it also improves the quality of labour markets. I discuss services liberalization in ASEAN and examine a case study of Thailand as the host country in the global economy. © 2013 Wiley Publishing Asia Pty Ltd. Source
