Exploring the "continuous combat function" concept in armed conflicts: Time for an extended application?

Sabrina Henry
2019 International Review of the Red Cross  
Secondly, the paper will look at the extension of this concept in order to determine individual membership in State armed forces in the context of a NIAC, while arguing that the notion of "armed forces  ...  First, the article will demonstrate that the continuous combat function concept should be extended to certain members of organized armed groups in cases where those groups do not belong to any of the parties  ...  that, as their membership in the armed forces is not regulated by domestic law, it can only be reliably determined "on the basis of the same functional criteria that apply to organized armed groups of  ...

When won't membership queries help?

Dana Angluin, Michael Kharitonov
1991 Proceedings of the twenty-third annual ACM symposium on Theory of computing - STOC '91  
We investigate cryptographic limitations on the power of membership queries to help with concept learning. Address:  ...  Consider the distribution D on strings x induced by flipping a coin to determine b and then running E((PK, SK), b) to determine S. This assigns probability zero to strings longer than p(n).  ...  Also, if all the membership queries of A" were correctly answered, then by the correctness of A', the predictions of A' for the signed version of a concept c (and therefore, the predictions of A for the  ...

Evolving fuzzy decision tree structure that adapts in real-time

James F. Smith
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '05  
Genetic algorithm based optimization is conducted to determine the form of the membership functions for the fuzzy root concepts.  ...  A comparison to subtrees obtained using a genetic program and those constructed by hand from rules is made.  ...  Each root concept membership function has parameters that are determined by optimization [6, 7] . For each root concept, a fuzzy membership function must be specified.  ...

Visualizing the Uncertainty of Urban Ontology Terms [chapter]

Hyowon Ban, Ola Ahlqvist
2007 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
The concept of exurban is an example of a term likely to find its way into urban development ontologies.  ...  We argue that exurban boundaries are not crisp, hence, a series of fuzzy-set theory membership functions help define the uncertainty of the empirical exurban boundaries.  ...  The final membership value for the Daniels definition is determined by calculating the average of the two membership values MF (D) and MF (P) .  ...

A Fuzzy-based Prior Knowledge Diagnostic Model with Multiple Attribute Evaluation

Yi-Chun Lin, Yueh-Min Huang
2013 Educational Technology & Society  
Nevertheless, one of the major problems when applying the PKD model is that it only uses correctness rates answered by students to determine their level of understanding with regard to particular concepts  ...  Consequently, with the intervals for α = 0 and 1, the resulting membership function is determined and is plotted in Figure 9.  ...  Appendix The EFWA algorithm  Definition: the input a, b, c, and d are the intervals of fuzzy membership functions, and the outputs are the intervals of the result fuzzy membership function.  ...

Corpus-Driven Contextualized Categorization

Tony Veale, Yanfen Hao
2006 European Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
By learning from corpora about how people creatively actually use categories in different contexts, we can train our ontologies to creatively adapt themselves to these contexts.  ...  This can be done by determining the frequency of occurrence of each concept within the category, and this, in turn, can be estimated by looking to a large corpus to see how each concept is actually employed  ...  Thus, to estimate the membership level of the word-concept butcher|屠 夫 in the category kill-agent, we first determine the corpus-frequency of the phrase "butcher who kills/killed".  ...
