TL;DR: Two progressive strategies for MCTS are introduced, called progressive bias and progressive unpruning, which enable the use of relatively time-expensive heuristic knowledge without speed reduction.
Abstract: Monte-Carlo Tree Search (MCTS) is a new best-first search guided by the results of Monte-Carlo simulations. In this article, we introduce two progressive strategies for MCTS, called progressive bias and progressive unpruning. They enable the use of relatively time-expensive heuristic knowledge without speed reduction. Progressive bias directs the search according to heuristic knowledge. Progressive unpruning first reduces the branching factor, and then increases it gradually again. Experiments assess that the two progressive strategies significantly improve the level of our Go program Mango. Moreover, we see that the combination of both strategies performs even better on larger board sizes.
TL;DR: In this article, the notion of mapping on soft classes was defined and several properties of images and inverse images of soft sets supported by examples and counterexamples were studied for medical diagnosis in medical expert systems.
Abstract: In this paper, we define the notion of a mapping on soft classes and study several properties of images and inverse images of soft sets supported by examples and counterexamples. Finally, these notions have been applied to the problem of medical diagnosis in medical expert systems.
TL;DR: This paper proposes two types of similarity measure between soft sets and made a comparative study of these two techniques, and shows an application of this similarity measure of soft sets.
Abstract: Soft set, as a parametrized family of subsets of a crisp universal set, has more ability to handle uncertain information. In this paper, we propose two types of similarity measure between soft sets and made a comparative study of these two techniques. Also we have shown an application of this similarity measure of soft sets.
TL;DR: The neutrosophic set is applied in image domain and some concepts and operations for image thresholding are defined and a new λ-mean operation is proposed to reduce the set's indetermination.
Abstract: A neutrosophic set (Ns), a part of neutrosophy theory, studies the origin, nature, and scope of neutralities, as well as their interactions with different ideational spectra. The neutrosophic set is a powerful general formal framework that has been recently proposed. However, the neutrosophic set needs to be specified from a technical point of view. We apply the neutrosophic set in image domain and define some concepts and operations for image thresholding. The image G is transformed into Ns domain, which is described using three subsets T, I and F. The entropy in neutrosophic set is defined and employed to evaluate the indetermination. A new λ-mean operation is proposed to reduce the set's indetermination. Finally, the proposed method is employed to perform image thresholding. We have conducted experiments on a variety of images. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed approach can select the thresholds automatically and effectively. Especially, it can process the "clean" images, the images with different kinds of noise and the images with multiple kinds of noise well without knowing the type of the noise, which is the most difficult task for image thresholding.
TL;DR: Basic features of the plasmodium foraging behavior are interpreted in terms of process calculus and spatial logic and it is shown that this behavior could be regarded as one of the natural implementations of spatial logic without modal operators.
Abstract: Plasmodium of Physarum polycephalum is a large single cell capable for distributed sensing, information processing, decentralized decision-making and collective action. In the paper, we interpret basic features of the plasmodium foraging behavior in terms of process calculus and spatial logic and show that this behavior could be regarded as one of the natural implementations of spatial logic without modal operators.
