Analysis of the assessment of risks related to working conditions in mines and how to improve it

Läuchli, Evelyne ; Fragnière, Emmanuel (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2014 ; TDEE 236.

Metals and Minerals are commodities essential to the development of a country and to the survival of an individual, but the press relates relatively often tragic accidents happening in mines. Moreover, NGOs and other organisations regularly point the finger to the practices of the extractive industry in terms of sustainability. Therefore I wanted to see what the reality was and why companies...

Two-stage metric learning

Kalousis, Alexandros ; Marchand-Maillet, Stéphane ; Sha, Fei ; Sun, Ke ; Wang, Jun

In: Proceedings of the 31th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), Beijing, China, 2014, p. 370-378

In this paper, we present a novel two-stage metric learning algorithm. We first map each learning instance to a probability distribution by computing its similarities to a set of fixed anchor points. Then, we define the distance in the input data space as the Fisher information distance on the associated statistical manifold. This induces in the input data space a new family of distance metric...

Knowledge Discovery in Databases is a complex process that involves many different data processing and learning operators. Today’s Knowledge Discovery Support Systems can contain several hundred operators. A major challenge is to assist the user in designing workflows which are not only valid but also – ideally – optimize some performance measure associated with the user goal. In this paper...

Liberalization of shops opening hours is the topic linked to retail that is the most present in political discussions. It is a complex issue that is often negotiated between trade unions and employers who each hold different positions and protect different interests. For this reason, progresses are slow and contentious. Various aspects are regularly brought forward in the discussion such as the...

Commodity trading : the role of physical assets acquisitions for energy trading companies

Crisafulli, Malik ; Piller, Robert (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2014 ; TDEE 233.

Commodity trading companies exist because natural resources are not well allocated. Producing countries are not those that consume the most, and the largest consuming regions are not supplied enough by their own natural resources reserves. In order to smooth out regional imbalances and fulfil supply and demand mismatches, commodity traders have to perform several activities in the supply chain....
