TL;DR: A single analysis suggests that neither kNN or RBF, nor nonlocal classifiers, achieve the best compromise between locality and capacity.
Abstract: Very rarely are training data evenly distributed in the input space. Local learning algorithms attempt to locally adjust the capacity of the training system to the properties of the training set in...

TL;DR: In this article, a case study of a group of young people as they move through their final year of mandatory schooling and into their first year of post-16 experience is presented.
Abstract: This internationally appealing book is based on a two-year case study of a group of young people as they move through their final year of mandatory schooling and into their first year of post-16 experience. It looks at their choices, the market behaviour of local education and training providers and those who help and advise these choices. The authors show that recent and current political policies for post-16 education disadvantage, marginalise and exclude young people rather than improve their life chances. The book draws together the major issues and attempts to suggest alternative ways forward for a more inclusive post-16 education and training system.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors propose a method for enhancing operational efficiency of a remote vehicle using a diagnostic behavior, which comprises inputting and analyzing data received from a plurality of sensors to determine the existence of deviations from normal operation of the remote vehicle, updating parameters in a reference mobility model based on deviations from the normal operation, and revising strategies to achieve an operational goal of the vehicle to accommodate deviations from normality.

An embedded simulation and training system for a remote vehicle. The system comprises a software architecture installed on the operator control unit and including software routines and drivers capable of carrying out mission simulations and training.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors argue that it is incorrect to assume a linear and automatic connection between skill formation and economic performance, and propose a theory of skill formation systems, building on a number of theories discussed in earlier chapters.
Abstract: Across the industrialised and developing world, economic growth is increasingly linked to skill formation to raise labour productivity and average living standards. The twin forces of global integration and technical change have increased the focus on and importance of education and training in the competitive process. The role of the education and training system in this process is becoming increasingly important. The first set of Chapters, two to four, constitute in effect a sustained theoretical and empirical investigation of this simplistic consensus. The authors argue that the consensus if deficient in four general ways. First, it is incorrect to assume a linear and automatic connection between skill formation and economic performance. Chapter two examines a range of theoretical perspectives on this connection. The most important finding is that the link between skills and performance has to be seen in its social context. Chapter three contributes a wide-ranging review of the evidence and concludes that despite the accumulation of a considerable number of studies, there remain significant areas requiring further investigation and research. Chapter four charts some of the major macroeconomic developments across the world, and considers econometric and other evidence for convergence of national economic systems. In chapter five, the authors propose a theory of skill formation systems, building on a number of theories discussed in earlier chapters. As examples of the origins of low skill routes to accumulation, chapter six looks at the origins of skill formation institutions in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA), as these two countries are most commonly considered as falling into this category. Chapter seven tackles the high-skill routes, focusing on Germany, Japan and Singapore and their institutional development. The final chapter centres on how governments can deal with the high-skill route to accumulation. This book contains the following chapters: Introduction and overview: capitalism and skill formation; Education, training and industrialised economies; Education, training and economic performance: the empirical evidence; Global economic transformation and skill trends; A theory of skill formation systems; The low-skills route; The high-skills routes; Conclusions: a framework for policy analysis.

TL;DR: The underlying ideas which motivated the Steamer effort are discussed, the current status of the project is described, a glimpse of the planned directions for the future are provided, and the implications of Steamer for AI applications in other instructional domains are discussed.
Abstract: The Steamer project is a research effort concerned with exploring the use of AI software and hardware technologies in the implementation of intelligent computer-based training systems While the project addresses a host of research issues ranging from how people understand complex dynamic systems to the use of intelligent graphical interfaces, it is focused around the construction of a system to assist in propulsion engineering instruction The purpose of this article is to discuss the underlying ideas which motivated us to initiate the Steamer effort, describe the current status of the project, provide a glimpse of our planned directions for the future, and discuss the implications of Steamer for AI applications in other instructional domains
