    In tracking repetitive square waves, the latency of saccadic eye movement to a change in target position decreases as the tracking run progresses. The latency in the steady state takes its minimum value for frequencies between 0.5 and 1.0 Hz. A model is proposed to predict this behavior of the saccadic eye movement system. Forming an estimate of target motion and carrying out the optimal control b... View full abstract»

    Techniques and concepts from cybernetics and engineering are used to combine partial models from economic literature into a more comprehensive macroeconomic model. The resulting linear model is capable of exhibiting short-period inventory cycles and long-period fixed capital investment cycles around a long-term constant growth rate trend. The rate of growth of total production is controlled by a m... View full abstract»

    It is shown that a certain weighted average of the prior distribution and the empirical distribution yields an estimate of the posterior distribution that is consistent with Bayes' theorem. A comparison of this approach and conventional parametric Bayesian estimation is made for some specific cases. View full abstract»

    One method of interpreting aerial photographs is to divide a frame of imagery into square cells, to extract recognition data from each cell, and to classify one cell at a time according to statistical decision theory. An algorithm for extracting contextual information from neighboring cells to improve cell recognition performance in such a system is presented. The algorithm was tested with a Monte...

    A multidisciplinary team is currently studying the applicability of computer simulation to problems of agricultural sector development in Nigeria. The program has as one of its major objectives the exploration of simulation as a tool for aiding policy makers of that country concerned with meeting the nutritional needs of the population, generation of foreign exchange earnings and raw material inpu...

  • Logical Networks for Feature Extraction

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2676 KB)

    The extraction of features for the purpose of reconstituting a pattern set may be particularly useful in those cases where a large number of patterns can be decomposed into a relatively small set of sub-patterns. By the representation of pattern and feature sets as matrices, the concept of feature determination has been extended to multilevel features and the hierarchical organization of logical n...

  • Markov Decisions on a Partitioned State Space

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1073 KB)

    An important practical constraint on admissible control policies is defined for the Markov decision process. The framework of an algorithm based on the infinite return optimization algorithms of Howard and Jewell is suggested to compute the optimal policy under this constraint. Iterative convergence to the optimal policy cannot be guaranteed, but techniques proposed for state-space reduction and r... View full abstract»

  • Pattern Classification Based on Fuzzy Relations

    Cited by:  Papers (118)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (729 KB)

    A method of classifying patterns using fuzzy relations is described. To start with, we give a suitable value of the measure of subjective similarity to each pair of patterns that is taken from the population of patterns to be classified. Then a similitude between any two patterns is calculated by using the composition of a fuzzy relation. The similitude induces an equivalence relation. Consequentl... View full abstract»

  • Information Rate and Capacity in a Crayfish Photoreceptor Nerve Channel

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):67 - 77
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1885 KB)

    The theoretical basis of our experimental approach to information rate and capacity in a crayfish photoreceptor nerve channel is that used by Shannon [16]. Dispersion curves of conduction times were studied for pulses following short, medium, and long intervals. Although the means were equal (2.6 ms), the standard deviation in the case of pulses following short intervals was larger (0.29 ms) than ... View full abstract»

  • Choosing Among Alternative Complex Systems When Input Characteristics Are Uncertain

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):77 - 82
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1021 KB)

    Planning for economic and social purposes often requires choosing among alternative proposed systems to fulfill particular needs. In order to make such choices, planners or decision makers must be able to predict and evaluate the performance of each alternative system. For complex systems, methods are often available for doing this when system inputs, such as system user characteristics, can be sp... View full abstract»

    The results of the above paper,1 concerning a simulation study of an adaptive pattern classification procedure using a mean-square error performance criterion and using an estimated Bayes rule procedure, are compared with theoretical solutions obtained by using an exact Bayes rule procedure. An inherent defect of the mean-square error criterion is also pointed out, and a comparison between a syste... View full abstract»

    Self-organizing control (SOC) is analyzed as a conventional controller and the evolution of adaptive SOC from a simple linear system is shown. The development intentionally avoids any reference to the bionics concepts which Barron uses to describe his system. View full abstract»

    Stochastic transition matrices are a convenient means for describing the behavior of adaptive and learning systems. Several systems which utilize these matrices and associated reinforcement (reward and punishment) techniques have been reported. A training algorithm is described which has been applied to a learning system described by stochastic transition matrices in which the environment was unkn... View full abstract»

  • On Obtaining Separating Hyperplanes via Linear Programming

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (361 KB)

    A linear programming method for obtaining separating hyperplanes is discussed. Depending upon the objective function, the algorithm will accept any separating hyperplane or one which satisfies a minimum distance criterion. Application to inconsistent, i.e., linearly nonseparable, systems is considered. View full abstract»

    A method for computing the generalized inverse A+ and the associated projections AA+ and A+A for any matrix A is developed It is also shown that the trace of a sequence of approximations to AA+ (or A+A) converges to the rank of A. Finally, examples are given showing the computation of the generalized inverse and rank. View full abstract»

  • Two Algorithms for Multiple-View Binary Pattern Reconstruction

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (845 KB)

    The problem of reconstructing binary patterns from their shadows or projections is treated. Two algorithms are formulated. For the two-view case, both algorithms give a perfect reconstruction if and only if the pattern is two-view unambiguous. It is also shown that n views are sufficient, but not necessary, to reconstruct any n × n binary pattern. Experimental results for the four-view reconstruc... View full abstract»
