    This paper gives an adaptive procedure for selecting a discriminant for a pattern recognizer. The optimum discriminant is selected from a given finite set of discriminants. The selection of this set itself is not considered here. At any stage the optimum discriminant is selected on the basis of the past observations. Since the storage space for these observations is assumed to be limited, and henc... View full abstract»

  • Learning Games through Pattern Recognition

    The objective of this research was to investigate a technique for machine learning that would be useful in solving problems involving forcing states. In games or control problems a forcing state is one from which the final goal can always be reached, regardless of what disturbances may arise. A program that learns forcing states in a class of games (in a game-independent format) by working backwar... View full abstract»

  • A Feature-Detection Program for Patterns with Overlapping Cells

    An attempt is made to extract feature informations automatically from patterns which may consist of open lines, partially overlapping cells, and cells that may lie entirely inside another cell. The usual pattern-recognition techniques, such as the linear threshold logic technique and the masking or template technique, are not practical here, if not entirely impossible. In this paper, a direct-sear... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Bayes Classification Model with Incompletely Specified Experiment

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):24 - 28
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1303 KB)

    A 2-stage classification model is presented in which the first stage is a quick, computerized Bayes rule decision device, and the second a slow, but perfectly accurate, classifier. A stationary stream of elements or objects to be classified into one of several mutually exclusive categories is fed into the model. The conditional probabilities associated with the Bayes device are assumed unknown at ... View full abstract»

  • On the Applicability of Wiener's Canonical Expansions

    Previous papers have proposed the application of Wiener's Hermite├é┬┐Laguerre expansion procedure to the multiple-alternative, discrete-decision problem with learning, characteristic of many waveform or stochastic-process pattern-recognition problems. Both sequential and nonsequential procedures were formulated; the resulting models are functionally analogous to a generalized Bayes'-net type of patt... View full abstract»

    Several decision algorithms were used to classify complex patterns recorded by TV cameras aboard unmanned, scientific satellites. Recognition experiments were performed with two kinds of patterns: lunar topographic features and clouds in the earth's atmosphere. Classification accuracies ranged from 53 percent to 99 percent on independent data. View full abstract»

    This paper describes closed-loop testing of the NORAD Command and Control System's ability to perform its assigned task: provide support for CINCNORAD in directing the air defense of North America. Special techniques were required to perform this testing since human beings were an integral part of the feedback loop. System test design and results are treated. View full abstract»

  • On Expediency and Convergence in Variable-Structure Automata

    A stochastic automaton responds to the penalties from a random environment through a reinforcement scheme by changing its state probability distribution in such a way as to reduce the average penalty received. In this manner the automaton is said to possess a variable structure and the ability to learn. This paper discusses the efficiency of learning for an m-state automaton in terms of expediency...

  • Evolution of Heuristics by Human Operators in Control Systems

    This paper presents a mathematical model for decision making in control systems. The model is constructed to perform four modes of control: 1) probing, 2) gradient, 3) heuristic, and 4) terminal. The operation of the model switches from one mode to another by following certain decision logic, which simulates the function of a human operator in a control system and the evolution of heuristics for c...

  • Dynamical Characteristics of the Fusional Vergence Eye-Movement System

    Experiments have been performed on the fusional vergence eye-movement mechanism in humans to provide a comparison with the established dynamical characteristics of the versional eye-movement system. Transient and frequency response experiments indicate that the fusional vergence system is not characterized by sampled data or refractory operation. When provided with a periodic input, this system ma... View full abstract»
