Global Cue Inconsistency Diminishes Learning of Cue Validity

Tony S. L. Wang, Nicole Christie, Piers D. L. Howe, Daniel R. Little
2016 Frontiers in Psychology  
In the current study (N = 107), we present a two-stage learning task that examines how participants learn and utilize predictive information within a probabilistic learning environment.  ...  Participants must differentiate the valid from non-valid cues and select this cue on subsequent trials in order to inform their prediction of the outcome in stage two.  ...  However, Danks et al. (2002) showed that slower learning in the negative contingency case is predicted whenever there is a prior bias toward expecting positive contingencies.  ...

AFChecker: Effective model checking for context-aware adaptive applications

Yepang Liu, Chang Xu, S.C. Cheung
2013 Journal of Systems and Software  
We formulate these features as deterministic constraints and probabilistic constraints to prune false positives and effectively prioritize remaining faults.  ...  In this paper, we address this false positive problem by inferring a domain model and an environment model for an RBA.  ...  We also thank anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments and suggestions on earlier versions of this paper.  ...
