Two approaches for collective learning with language games
Gülçehre, Çağlar; Bozşahin, Hüseyin Cem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2011)
This thesis presents a defense of the view that externalism cannot be a theoretical basis of a mentalistic causal-explanatory science, even though such a theoretical basis is implicitly or explicitly adopted by many cognitive scientists. Externalism is a theory in philosophy of mind which states that mental properties are relations between the core realizers of an individual’s mental states (such as brain states) and certain things that exist outside those realizers (such as what the content of a mental sta...

An investigation for the development of an interactive computer program for the assessment of strength of a single fastener composite joint in single shear was carried out. Database from previous experimental programs and design sources was evaluated for the establishment of the program. Some experiments were also done with single shear bolted carbon fiber reinforced composite laminates. The suggested computer program models the joint behavior by considering the laminates as homogeneous plates with represen...
Repetition support and mining cyclic patterns
Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (Elsevier BV, 2003-10-01)
For customer transaction database, the support (customer support) of the sequential pattern is defined as the fraction of the customers supporting the sequence. We define new forms of the mining patterns, called cyclic patterns, as an extension to the sequential pattern mining by introducing a new parameter, the repetition support. For customer transaction database, the repetition support specifies the minimum number of repetitions of the patterns in each customer transaction sequence. Repeated patterns can...
Formation preserving path finding in 3-D terrains
Bayrak, Ali Galip; Polat, Faruk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-03-01)
Navigation of a group of autonomous agents that are required to maintain a formation is a challenging task which has not been studied much especially in 3-D terrains. This paper presents a novel approach to collision free path finding of multiple agents preserving a predefined formation in 3-D terrains. The proposed method could be used in many areas like navigation of semi-automated forces (SAF) at unit level in military simulations and non-player characters (NPC) in computer games. The proposed path findi...
Area measurement of large closed regions with a mobile robot
Şahin, Erol; Ugur, Emre (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-11-01)
How can a mobile robot measure the area of a closed region that is beyond its immediate sensing range? This problem, which we name as blind area measurement, is inspired from scout worker ants who assess potential nest cavities. We first review the insect studies that have shown that these scouts, who work in dark, seem to assess arbitrary closed spaces and reliably reject nest sites that are small for the colony. We briefly describe the hypothesis that these scouts use "Buffon's needle method" to measure t...
