Agent technology can be used in searching and selecting a good e-tourism system, However, most such systems focus mainly on price and avoid important purchasing decision-making factors such as quality and reputation. Here we define a reputation-based architecture for an e-tourism system that we have called 'reputation-based electronic tourism' (RET). An artificial neural network model was created for a reputation agent to evaluate capabilities for selecting products and services in an e-tourism ...

Evidence exists that emerging market stock returns are influenced by a different set of factors than those that influence the returns for stocks traded in developed countries. This study uses artificial neural networks to predict stock price movement (i.e., price returns) for firms traded on the Shanghai stock exchange. We compare the predictive power using linear models from financial forecasting literature to the predictive power of the univariate and multivariate neural network models. Our re...

Web-based education is a popular format for the delivery of college courses. Research has shown that it may not be the best form of education for all students. Today, many students (and student advisors) face a choice in course delivery format (i.e., Web-based or more traditional classroom courses). This research study examines the relationship between student personality characteristics and their achievement scores as a means of identifying predictors of academic success in an undergraduate bus...

Abstract The decision to select a particular group of individuals to serve as a jury is critically important to insure the fairness and impartiality in a trial under the United States Constitution. Yet, the amount of effort and, particularly, the time required under currently used methods of jury selection adds substantially to judicial system costs and can contribute to the inability of the courts to provide a timely hearing. This paper presents an approach to this decision process that incorpo...
