  Frontiers of intelligent autonomous systems
Lee S., Yoon K., Lee J.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, Heidelberg, Germany, 2013. 422 pp. Type: Book (978-3-642354-84-7)

Someday soon there will be things (besides people and pets) that move about in, and manipulate, our environment, without our supervision or control. Such devices exist in laboratories and some are already in service in medical, military, and resea...

  Agent cooperation within adversarial teams in dynamic environment -- key issues and development trends
Dziekowski B., Markowska-Kaczmar U.  In Transactions on Compuational Collective Intelligence VI. Berlin, Germany: Springer-Verlag, 2012. Type: Book Chapter

Intelligent systems continue to evolve into behavior models of increasingly complex situations. Now, they involve multiple agents working cooperatively as a team in competition with other teams of multiple agents. As such, they begin to model the ...

  Ensemble machine learning: methods and applications
Zhang C., Ma Y.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2012. 337 pp. Type: Book (978-1-441993-25-0)

Many machine learning algorithms, such as neural nets, support vector machines, decision trees, Bayesian networks, clustering, hidden Markov models, and temporal difference learning, have been devised and used to discover patterns in data. While o...

  Including cognitive biases and distance-based rewards in a connectionist model of complex problem solving
Dandurand F., Shultz T., Rey A.  Neural Networks 2541-56, 2012. Type: Article

Dandurand et al. have devised a computational model, and a way to train it, that better matches human performance on learning a certain problem-solving task than their previous model. The problem to be solved is to find which of 12 items is heavie...

  Sparse conjugate directions pursuit with application to fixed-size kernel models
Karsmakers P., Pelckmans K., Brabanter K., Hamme H., Suykens J.  Machine Learning 85(1-2): 109-148, 2011. Type: Article

While the conjugate gradient method is a popular iterative approach to solving large sparse linear systems, it is not biased to find good sparse solutions. This paper presents a variant called sparse conjugate directions pursuit (SCDP), which will...

  Interactive multi-modal question-answering
van den Bosch A., Bouma G.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2011. 304 pp. Type: Book (978-3-642175-24-4)

Researchers in broad disciplines such as natural language processing usually conduct their research by breaking the general problem down into many small problems. A researcher can make a career out of solving a few of these small problems. It is r...

  Computing intensional answers to questions--an inductive logic programming approach
Cimiano P., Rudolph S., Hartfiel H.  Data & Knowledge Engineering 69(3): 261-278, 2010. Type: Article

Ordinary database systems answer a query by listing the items that satisfy the query. They can be more helpful, however, if they can point out regularities in the data that was examined while answering the query. In this paper, the authors show ho...

  AALIANCE ambient assisted living roadmap
van den Broek G., Cavallo F., Wehrmann C.,  IOS PRESS, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 2010. 136 pp. Type: Book (978-1-607504-98-6)

Just like most of the rest of the world, Europe anticipates that the elderly and disabled portion of its population will grow in the near future. The need to provide assistance to these citizens to improve their quality of life has given rise to m...

  Playing games with approximation algorithms
Kakade S., Kalai A., Ligett K.  SIAM Journal on Computing 39(3): 1088-1106, 2009. Type: Article

Suppose a delivery truck visits the same customers every day, but traffic conditions are unknown and vary. What is the best route for the truck to take? This is one (briefly mentioned) example of the kind of problem addressed by this paper....

  Committee machines for facial-gender recognition
Raafat H., Tolba A., Shaddad E.  International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems 6(1): 41-51, 2009. Type: Article

Machine learning technologies inspired by neural networks are likely to be most useful when modeling difficult-to-code tasks, such as gender recognition based on facial images. This paper summarizes some recent experiments with one such technology...
