A general approximation method for bicriteria minimization problems
Many applications in operations research require the simultaneous optimization of multiple (typically mutually opposing) objective functions. Since the general problem is usually computationally intractable, bicriteria optimization restricts itself to two objectives while approximate... more
It took more than a decade for the ASCII character set to be universally adopted. In the mid to late 1970s we still had to deal with computers and computer terminals... more

A survey of imperatives and action representation formalisms: Artificial Intelligence Review

What is an action? The agent observes two states at different times; if there is a change, then an action occurred. This implicit definition of action is adopted in this paper. At the beginning of artificial... more

From neuron to cognition via computational neuroscience

An old aphorism says that, if our brains were simple enough to be understood, we wouldn’t be smart enough to understand them. Fortunately, many scientists are not so pessimistic, and they are unrelentingly... more
