Kaleidoscopic Approach to Security Shadows in the Age of Information

Deyan Gotchev
2000 Information & Security An International Journal  
As a result, the means for leveraging one's own interests, e.g., tools, tactics, etc., in the information realm will be (or at least can be) qualitatively different from the means applied to leverage the  ...  Immediacy provides that a command is always 'forward'; that's why for a perspective in tactical situation hierarchies should be relied on with great precaution and only temporally.  ...

A Survey of Behavior Trees in Robotics and AI [article]

Matteo Iovino, Edvards Scukins, Jonathan Styrud, Petter Ögren, Christian Smith
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Behavior Trees (BTs) were invented as a tool to enable modular AI in computer games, but have received an increasing amount of attention in the robotics community in the last decade.  ...  In BTs, the state transition logic is not dispersed across the individual states, but organized in a hierarchical tree structure, with the states as leaves.  ...  In [2] , the same authors combine BTs with Fuzzy logic and use Fuzzy membership functions as the leaves of the BT. A Fuzzy obstacle avoidance algorithm is then used for path planning.  ...

Trials and Tribulations of Learning the Market: Culture and Economic Practice in Russia's Market Transition

Jeffrey K. Hass
2005 The Carl Beck Papers in Russian and East European Studies  
I explore economic culture and these forms of decoupling and cultural change by examining change in two logics of business: logics of production and sales (incomplete learning), and logics of value (resistance  ...  Few analyses attempt to include an examination of culture and its role in the construction of post socialist economic practices, procedures, and institutions.  ...  The market alternative might have been legitimate, but it was only a vague, fuzzy model. Cul tural legacies and new rules of the game intersected to produce innovation and confusion.  ...

Dynamically holding both modes together, through a "multifocal lens"—the world-as-it-is and the world-as-it-should-be—enables their strategic maneuverings.  ...  My case study troubles the premise that religion and feminism are antithetical, and that distinct identities or set social locations predetermine social movements' frames or actions.  ...  The third understanding of change from within is a political positioning, a stance of pragmatic idealism, the logic of efficacy: this refers to an assumption that inducing processes of socio-legal change  ...
