Inferential Queueing and Speculative Push

Ravi Rajwar, Alain Kägi, James R Goodman
2004 International journal of parallel programming  
In this paper, we argue for the use of two mechanisms to reduce these communication latencies: Inferentially Queued locks (IQLs) and Speculative Push (SP).  ...  With IQLs, the processor infers the existence, and limits, of a critical section from the use of synchronization instructions and joins a queue of lock requestors, reducing synchronization delay.  ...  Two mechanisms discussed in this paper are Inferentially Queued Locks (IQL) and Speculative Push (SP).  ...

Catherine McVey, Fushing Hsieh, Diego Manriquez, Pablo Pinedo, Kristina Horback
2020 Frontiers in Veterinary Science  
Cows at the front and rear of the queue proved more consistent in their entry position than animals at the center of the queue, a systematic pattern of heterogeneity more clearly visualized using entropy  ...  Finally, queueing records were related back to behaviors recorded via ear tag accelerometers using linear models and mutual conditional entropy tests.  ...  and Environmental Science.  ...

Analogy as an Organizational Principle in the Construction of Large Knowledge-Bases [chapter]

Tony Veale, Guofu Li
2014 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
A good knowledge-base should be balanced and coherent, so that its high-level generalities are systematically reflected in a variety of lower-level specializations.  ...  We present a simple and efficient means of finding potential analogies within a large knowledge-base, using a corpus-constrained notion of pragmatic comparability rather than the typically less-constrained  ...  complex inferential chains.  ...

Introspective multistrategy learning: On the construction of learning strategies

Michael T. Cox, Ashwin Ram
1999 Artificial Intelligence

Foundationalism and practical reason

1997 Mind  
A theory of action of this type eliminates the gap between moral obligation and action, and so articulates the fundamental Kantian intuition that acting on the basis of moral principle-and with disregard  ...  One of the least satisfactory features of the recent debate in moral psychology between proponents of Humean and Kantian models of motivation has been that a number of significant underlying assumptions  ...  If you push your enquiries farther, and desire a reason why he hates pain , it is impossible he can ever give any. This is an ultimate end, and is never referred to any other object.  ...

Bystander Antiprejudice: Cross-Cultural Education, Links With Positivity Towards Cultural 'Outgroups' and Preparedness to Speak Out

Anne Pedersen, Yin Paradies, Lisa Kathryn Hartley, Kevin M. Dunn
2011 Journal of Pacific Rim Psychology  
Further, Tony Abbott and others spoke of 'illegals jumping the queue'.  ...  It was also pointed out that for many asylum seekers there was no queue to jump and, moreover, that Australia had a quota system rather than a queue.  ...  They use our prosperity, security and freedom but they treat Australians (especially women) with disdain and contempt. Their leaders spread hatred of western values in mosques and schools.  ...

Relevance Theory for Fiction

Janet Giltrow
2021
The first complaint is easily addressed: RT is not a hermeneutic tool; the laboriousness and banality of putative interpretations are not evidence in themselves of RT's incapacity to explain the inferential  ...  further, proposes that the inferential structure of literary genres produces a depth of field so fertile that it may be a clue to if not strict evidence of Sperber and Wilson's 'dedicated module'.  ...  Most speculatively, and with only the sketchiest of methodif any at all -I will conclude with brief comparative sightings of ostensive-inferential structures in three novels: Austen's Sense and Sensibility  ...
