    This primarily tutorial paper on the use of binary matrices in system modeling also includes new material related to the initial development of such matrices. The decomposition of binary matrices into levels such that all feedback is contained within the levels is illustrated. A method for developing a binary matrix en route to a structural model of a system is outlined. The development procedure ... View full abstract»

    At present, many metropolitan sewer systems do not meet existing and proposed standards on water pollution. Existing systems were designed to overflow at prescribed locations in order to protect the sewage treatment plants whenever severe overload conditions exist (usually during storms). This discharge of untreated overflows into natural receiving waters is of growing concern to water pollution c... View full abstract»

    An adaptive threshold element is able to "learn" a strategy of play for the game blackjack (twenty-one) with a performance close to that of the Thorp optimal strategy although the adaptive system has no prior knowledge of the game and of the objective of play. After each winning game the decisions of the adaptive system are "rewarded." After each losing game the decisions are "punished." Reward is... View full abstract»

  • A Learning Machine with New Structure and Function

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):466 - 472
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1455 KB)

    A new learning model is proposed, which is quite different from the usual ones in both function and structure. In the usual models only the classification function of input patterns is learned. On the other hand, the proposed learning machine can memorize input patterns themselves by a learning process. That is, an input pattern appears on the output plane of the machine if it has been presented t... View full abstract»

    The human decision maker's behavior when predicting future states of discrete linear dynamic systems driven by zero-mean Gaussian processes is modeled. The task is on a slow enough time scale that physiological constraints are insignificant compared with cognitive limitations. The model is basically a linear regression system identifier with a limited memory and noisy observations. Experimental da... View full abstract»

  • A Human Response Model of a Combined Manual and Decision Task

    A combined manual and decision task may be viewed as an arrangement of subtasks, one or more of which involves uncertainty due to some input random process I(X). Very little is known about the relationship between the subtask performance times and I(X), particularly in an operational environment. An experiment was run involving a task containing a 4-alternative choice decision subtask. The other s... View full abstract»

    The regional planning of health care facilities is treated as a process of searching, integrating, screening, matching, evaluating, and selecting the type of facilities most suitable for the physical and socioeconomic environment in which the facilities are to be constructed. A rational procedure which matches various possible combinations of environmental features and performance characteristics ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes, in a polemical way, the possible ways for synthesis of artificial gait, taking into account its application in the rehabilitation of severely disabled paraplegics. The essential relation between the hierarchical control concept of artificial legged locomotion systems and human beings has been treated. The method of prescribed synergy has been described in detail. This method,... View full abstract»

    Planning of new and expanded health facilities is and will continue to be a necessary function as the demand for better health care increases. Physical facility design and the establishment of staffing patterns are basic administrative decisions which must be made long before the health center opens. The effect of these decisions on patient flow is critical. The simulation model described in this ... View full abstract»
