( 'What you see is what you meant') is a user-interface technique which uses natural language generation (NLG) technology to provide feedback for user interactions. To date, the technology has been applied in a number of demonstrator applications, using customised, nonportable implementations. In this demonstration, we introduce a WYSIWYM library package, designed to be used as a modular component of a larger JAVA-based application.
Since the recognition of the importance of antenatal as well as postnatal depression, a
number of studies have looked at the prevalence of depression among pregnant women in
the developed and developing world. Prevalence rates vary because of a variety of
The operational amplifier ("op amp") is the most versatile and widely used type of analog IC, used in audio and voltage amplifiers, signal conditioners, signal converters, oscillators, and analog computing systems. Almost every electronic device uses at least one op amp. This book is Texas Instruments' complete professional-level tutorial and reference to operational amplifier theory and applications.
The scores in Test 1 and Test 2 of the 40 student participants are illustrated in Figures 1 to 5 in regard
to Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking and Overall scores. In Test 1, the Listening score obtained
by the greatest number (12 students) was 6.5, while in Test 2 it was a score of 7.5 (16 students). A
similar pattern applied in Reading. In Test 1, the score obtained by the greatest number (12 students)
was also 6.5, while in Test 2 it was a score of 7.5 (10 students). In Writing, the scores were somewhat
lower. In Test 1,...
This book will give you the basics, the hows and whys of setting up a
home-based business on eBay. I’ve authored several best-selling books
about running a business on eBay. This book gives you the information
you need to get started in one nifty (albeit heavy) volume.
The first section of this chapter explores corruption, modelled as a non-fatal transmissible
infection which divides a community into 4 compartments: Susceptible, Infective,
Removed and Resistant. The Removed class has age structure. The corruptionfree
steady state, though unstable, can be stabilized by feedback control. The efficiency
of the measure depends on a number of parameters, especially the rates at which susceptibles
become resistant, and the infective are removed or become resistant. The
second part analyses disease transmission as a saturable interaction.
This chapter will describe the important linear parameters which are currently used to characterise two port networks. These parameters enable manipulation and optimisation of RF circuits and lead to a number of figures of merit for devices and circuits. Commonly used figures of merit include hFE, the short circuit low frequency current gain, fT, the transition frequency at which the modulus of the short circuit current gain equals one, GUM (Maximum Unilateral Gain), the gain when the device is matched at the input and the output and the internal feedback has been assumed to be zero....
Students learn in a number of ways and in a variety of settings. They learn
through lectures, in informal study groups, or alone at their desks or in
front of a computer terminal. Wherever the location, students learn most
efficiently by solving problems, with frequent feedback from an instructor,
following a worked-out problem as a model. Worked-out problems
have a number of positive aspects. They can capture the essence of a
key concept -often better than paragraphs of explanation. They provide
methods for acquiring new knowledge and for evaluating its use.
This document lists Java coding recommendations common in the Java development community.
The recommendations are based on established standards (see for instance , , ,  and ) as well as feedback from
a huge number of software professionals around the world.
Main drawback with existing guidelines is that these guides are far too general in their
FUZZY DESCRIPTOR SYSTEMS AND CONTROL
This chapter deals with a fuzzy descriptor system defined by extending the original Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model. A number of stability conditions for the fuzzy descriptor system are derived and represented in terms of LMIs. A motivating example for using the fuzzy descriptor system instead of the original Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model is presented. An LMI-based design approach is employed to find stabilizing feedback gains and a common Lyapunov function.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is formally defined as a digital operation performed on an input sequence of numbers
(including feedback from the result of the digital operation). The sequence of numbers can represent anything from
digitised human speech to stock price data, processed to detect hidden periodicities or pattern
Ants communicate information by leaving pheromone tracks. A moving ant leaves, in varying quantities, some pheromone on the ground to mark its way. While an isolated ant moves essentially at random, an ant encountering a previously laid trail is able to detect it and decide with high probability to follow it, thus reinforcing the track with its own pheromone.
Our Leadership IQ study of 20,000 new hires (reported in Fortune and Forbes) found
that the number one reason why new hires fail is that they are not coachable. A high
performance workplace is dependent upon employees that have the ability to accept and
implement feedback from bosses, colleagues, customers and other key players. There is
no point in investing time and energy in people who are not going to positively respond.
Doing so is a time consuming and exhausting exercise in futility.
Exploiting Inherent Relationships Between Parameters in Recurrent Neural Networks
Perspective Optimisation of complex neural network parameters is a rather involved task. It becomes particularly diﬃcult for large-scale networks, such as modular networks, and for networks with complex interconnections, such as feedback networks.
Since this book was first published in 1993, the Advanced Paediatric Life Support
(APLS) concept and courses have gone a great way towards their aim of bringing simple
guidelines for the management of ill and injured children to front-line doctors and
Over the years an increasing number of experts have contributed to the work and we
extend our thanks both to them and also to our instructors who unceasingly provide
helpful feedback.The Advanced Paediatric Life Support Course is now well established
in several countries outside the United Kingdom.
This second edition provides an updated and expanded synthesis of feedbacks and interactions between insects and their environment. A number of recent studies have advanced understanding of feedbacks or provided useful examples of principles. Molecular methods have provided new tools for addressing dispersal and interactions among organisms and have clarified mechanisms of feedback between insect effects.
In Unix there are many ways to accomplish a given task. Given a problem to solve, we
may be able to get to a solution in any number of ways. Of course, some will be more
efficient, be more readable, use less disk space or memory, may or may not give the user
feedback on what is going on or give more accurate details and more precision to the
result. In this book we are going to step through every detail of writing a shell script to
solve real-world Unix problems and tasks. The shell scripts range from using a pseudorandom
number generator to create pseudo-random...
It has been assumed so far in all the considerations of induction machine and SPMSM vector control that a speed (or position) sensor is available and that it provides the required feedback signal for closed loop speed control (and the speed/position information for co-ordinate transformation, where required). Sensors mounted on the machine shaft are in general not desirable for a number of reasons. First of all, their cost is substantial. Secondly, their mounting requires a machine with two shaft ends available - one for the sensor, and the other one for the load coupling. ...
It is highly likely that by augmenting the amount of funding available to banks,
securitization activity had a significant and positive impact on credit growth during the years
prior to the credit crisis (Loutskina and Strahan, 2009, Altunbas et al., 2009). In a number of
countries experiencing a period credit growth, securitization activity probably strengthened the
feedback effect between increases in housing prices and the credit expansion.
Initially, almost all of the teachers reported feeling overwhelmed by the number of
non-native errors in their students’ writing and by not knowing where to begin in
providing their feedback. Over time a few teachers found it helpful to focus on a few
major issues, and the tutoring journals reflect their decision-making process about
what to work on with their students and how much time to spend.
