Handling conceptual model validation by planning [chapter]

Dolors Costal, Ernest Teniente, Toni Urpí, Carles Farré
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a new approach to model validation.  ...  Our approach is independent of any particular planning method and it extends the facilities of the methods developed so far.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Antoni Olive who encouraged pursuance of this work.  ...

Speedup Learning [chapter]

Alan Fern
2017 Encyclopedia of Machine Learning and Data Mining  
The most distinctive feature of speedup learning, compared to most branches of machine learning, is that the learned knowledge does not provide the problem solver with the ability to solve new problem  ...  The input to a speedup learner typically consists of observations of prior problem-solving experience, which may include traces of the problem solver's operations and/or solutions to solved problems.  ...  There have been a number of deductive learning approaches to speedup learning in planning, which are traditionally cited as explanation-based learning (EBL) approaches [10] .  ...

The Role of State Regulation in Consumer-Driven Health Care

Timothy S. Jost, Mark A. Hall
2005 American Journal of Law & Medicine  
Most other regulators, however, noted that high-deductible plans of some form have been in the market for a number of years without any serious problems, and MMA qualified plans are too new to know whether  ...  Many of the problems with managed care arose from consumer unfamiliarity with this new type of insurance. 1 1 2 People new to consumer-driven plans will face a similar learning curve.  ...  and realize that they still have far to go to meet their deductible.  ...

Analysis of investment choices for retirement: a new approach and perspective

V Krishnan
2001 Financial Services Review  
The concept of a break-even tax rate at the time of withdrawal of funds is used to analyze optimal choice between the deductible IRA and the Roth IRA.  ...  The break-even tax rate is seen to be a decreasing function of rate of return on the investment and the investment horizon.  ...  The investment choices now available to the individual include the traditional tax-deductible IRAs, the new Roth IRA, the non-deductible IRA, and taxdeductible employer sponsored plans such as a 401(k)  ...

An Abstract Machine for Classes of Communicating Agents Based on Deduction [chapter]

Pierre Bonzon
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We first define an abstract machine that generates runs for individual agents with non-deterministic plans. We then introduce agent classes whose communication primitives are based on deduction.  ...  Contrary to other more theoretical work, their operational semantics are given by an abstract machine that is defined purely in sequential terms.  ...  Acknowledgement The author wishes to thank the anonymous referees for their valuable comments. Indeed most of these comments found their way into this revised version.  ...
