  • Modelling operator's skill by machine learning

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):23 - 30
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (557 KB)

    Controlling complex dynamic systems requires skills that operators often cannot completely describe, but can demonstrate. This paper describes some research into the transfer of human control skill into an automatic controller. Controllers are generated from examples of control traces. This process can be aided by techniques of Machine Learning (ML), and is also called "behavioural cloning". The p... View full abstract»

    The new internet economy will be driven by services. The major value proposition is in moving from personal productivity to collective productivity and from vendor-centric to customer-centric business. A lack of skilled IT professionals will necessitate a simpler and more automated Internet infrastructure. The evolution from infrastructure provider to ASP (Application Service Provider) and FSP (Fu... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (589 KB)

    The purpose of this article is to reduce the number of instructions while executing in processor. We analyse memory address dependent instructions and eliminate the address generation processing if the address was previously calculated. For standard RISC, VLIW and in-order superscalar processor we introduce a solution where the RMI (Reduction of Memory Instructions) algorithm is performed in the c... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (623 KB)

    In this article we review the concepts of branch, value and memory prediction used in conjunction with control and data speculative execution in superscalar processors. Since the amount of available instruction level parallelism within a basic block is relatively small, control speculation techniques increase the number of candidate instructions for execution. Moreover, the integration of value, a... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (407 KB)

    Solving Ax=b, where A is a sparse matrix, is a frequent engineering problem; however, in power transmission system calculations A is among the sparsest matrices in all engineering problems. Over the years a large number of software packages have been developed to handle operations with large sparse matrices (BLAS, LAPAK, LINPAK, LAPAK++, SparseLib++, etc.). The development of matrix tools for exte... View full abstract»

    Extreme programming (XP) has attracted attention because of its fierce denial of many well-accepted software engineering practices considered as a sound approach to the development of intensive software systems. XP has been declared to be a new way of software development: a lightweight methodology, which is efficient, low-risk, flexible, predictable, scientific, and distinguishable from any other...

  • Semantic indexing in image retrieval using description logic

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):125 - 132
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (775 KB)

    We study the use of description logic for semantic indexing in image retrieval systems in order to bridge the gap between low-level features extracted with image analysis and the complex structure of objects. In our approach, starting from a region based segmentation of images, we extract shape, color, position, size and rotation features and provide a syntax for the description of complex objects...

  • Some relationships among knowledge operators, the past temporal operator once, and the future temporal operators in multi-agent systems

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):149 - 156
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (503 KB)

    We consider some relationships among the knowledge operators (Ki, Kj), the past temporal operator (the once operator), and the future temporal operators (the next operator, the eventually operator, the always operator) in multi-agent systems. These relationships describe agent properties in multi-agent systems (the properties relate knowledge of two agents): if agent i has known F: then agent j wi... View full abstract»

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITTSs) are a class of computer systems allowing human teacher emulation in the process of learning and teaching. From the user's standpoint most of an ITS can be considered as a user interface, since it brings ITS functionality to mostly non-technical users. This is the main reason why in designing an ITS human-computer interaction becomes one of the most important is... View full abstract»

  • A geometrical modification of SVM outputs for pattern recognition

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):165 - 170
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (308 KB)

    We present a novel way of interpreting and modifying the outputs of the support vector machine classifiers. The geometrical interpretation of the SVM outputs, as distance of the patterns from the hyperylane, gives us a way to calculate posterior probability, i.e. construct a rejection threshold for vectors belonging to one of the classes. We illustrate the results by analyzing three classification... View full abstract»
