    This paper describes how an adaptive system can adapt itself to optimize its performance under the influence of uncertain environment. At each stage of adaptation, the uncertain environment, which is represented by a random vector with an unknown statistical property, is estimated by Bayesian approach from its past outcomes up to the latest one. This approach is investigated in general so that the... View full abstract»

  • Stochastic Model for Real and Simulated Neurophysiological Behavior

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):86 - 92
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Meaningful factor analysis and algebraic operations during stimulation, learning, and discrimination experiments have been performed on averaged evoked potential responses, suggesting that, at least under some circumstances, the signal space of average evoked potentials is linear. Alternatively, the "behavior" of simulated neural nets is defined as the observation of an average over an ensemble of... View full abstract»

    The U. S. plywood industry is analyzed as a feedback system and simulated on a large-scale digital computer. An industry of thousands of interacting firms is approximately represented by a model of seven interacting sectors by grouping together firms which tend to behave homogeneously in response to the same input variables. The seven sectors include two producing sectors representing, in the aggr... View full abstract»

  • Recursive Bayesian Method for Estimating States of Nonlinear System from Sequential Indirect Observations

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):101 - 105
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Recursive Bayesian equations are given for estimating the states of a system, given the sequence of inputs, outputs, and the probabilistic interdependences from one time to the next. Equations are derived for the case of a nonlinear system with normal error densities and linear deviations for small errors. These equations reduce to the Kalman filter for the strictly linear case. When the equations... View full abstract»

  • Extremization of Constrained Multivariable Function: Structural Programming

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):105 - 111
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    This paper describes how to find the extremum of a constrained multivariable function by taking advantage of its structure. Three steps lead to the solution. The first step discusses restructuring a given problem├é┬┐reformulating it in a way which makes possible the calculations performed in the next two steps. The second step presents the conversion of the restructured problem into a block diagram.... View full abstract»

  • On the Efficiency of Learning Machines

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):111 - 116
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1348 KB)

    The efficiency of the learning process is investigated in terms of the efficiency of abstract learning machines. The measure of efficiency defined gives an estimate of the minimum period for a system to absorb a given quantity of information, makes possible a quantitative comparison of different learning systems, and establishes a quantity which designers of adaptive machines should attempt to max...

  • Two Viewpoints of k-Tuple Pattern Recognition

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):117 - 120

    This paper presents two viewpoints of the k-tuple pattern recognition scheme proposed by Browning and Bledsoe. The first shows that k-tuple pattern recognition is a statistical approximation technique. In effect, the recognition is accomplished by approximating a higher order probability distribution by use of the first-order distributions. Using this viewpoint, and Lewis' measure of characteristi... View full abstract»

  • Accommodative Convergence - An Adaptive Nonlinear Control System

    Accommodative convergence of the eyes relates to reflex convergence when the lens accommodates for distance. The system has been studied in both frequency and time domains by providing sinusoidal and pulse stimuli of target distance from the eye and measuring the degree of convergence as output. Both predictable single sinusoidal and nonpredictable multiple sinusoidal data are obtained and related... View full abstract»

  • Objective-Setting in a Large Industrial Firm - Case Study in Steel

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):134 - 137
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1058 KB)

    No theory or analysis, only some very general conclusions of a case study are presented here. The subject seems appropriate at this time since it covers the objective-setting of a large industrial firm, with particular emphasis on large-scale plant control systems. Three of the authors represent three distinct functional units of a steel company, i.e., planning and engineering, production, and res... View full abstract»

  • Operator Algebra for Differential Systems

    This paper presents the development of an operator algebra for differential systems which is useful in that it allows the transmittance methods commonly applied to linear stationary systems to be extended, almost without modification, to nonstationary systems as well. This operator algebra for differential systems has two operations, addition and multiplication, and two special elements, the null ... View full abstract»
