Dynamic Filtering of Useless Data in an Adaptive Multi-Agent System: Evaluation in the Ambient Domain [chapter]

2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An evaluation of the performances of our system as well as the encouraging obtained results are then shown.  ...  Amadeus is an Adaptive Multi-Agent System whose goal is to observe and to learn users' behaviour in an ambient system in order to perform their recurrent actions on their behalf.  ...  andAmadeus actions per day without filtering data data (three by room and five rooms), only three data are useful for each instance, and twelve are useless.  ...

AMADEUS: an adaptive multi-agent system to learn a user's recurring actions in ambient systems

Valérian GUIVARCH, Valérie CAMPS, André PÉNINOU
2012 Advances in Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence Journal  
Ambient systems are characterized by their dynamics and their huge complexity.An important issue in this field is their capability to provide a relevant behaviour in order to satisfy users involved.  ...  The objective of our study is to propose Amadeus, a system able to learn the user's behaviour in order to perform his recurrent actions on his behalf, independently of the ambient system in which it is  ...  So, we can distinguish useful and useless data by comparing their values at runtime with their values when they are considered as useful.  ...

Without Why: Useless Plants in Daoism and Christianity

Sam Mickey

Each of those examples involves non-anthropocentric engagements with the uselessness of plants, which is not to say that they are completely free of the anthropocentrically scaled perspectives that assimilate  ...  A viable response to planetary emergency can emerge with the radical passivity of effortless action, which is a careless care that finds solidarity with the carefree ways of plants.  ...  The opposite of useless plants would be plants that are used up, such that their use and uselessness are not sustained or renewed.  ...

On directly constructing LR(k) parsers without chain reductions

Wilf R. LaLonde
1976 Proceedings of the 3rd ACM SIGACT-SIGPLAN symposium on Principles on programming languages - POPL '76  
The algorithm, as in [PagS], also eliminates from the parsers all nonterminals which occur as the left part of useless chain productions.  ...  In this paper, we present an algorithm for directly constructing LR(k) parsers with arbitrary subsets of the chain productions, called the useless chain productions, optimized out.  ...  A useful chain production is one so declared by a user, otherwise, is useless.  ...

Correlation of growth is used to account for apparently useless peculiarities, for, although the preservation of useless peculiarities cannot be due to the direct action of natural selection, if a useless  ...  peculiarity is correlated with a useful one, natural selection, by preserving that which is useful, will preserve the useless one as well.  ...

The truth is that the activities of organic beings are not at any stage necessarily utilitarian. Nature furnishes the or- ganism with many members, useful and useless.  ...  The so-called practical man is justified in his scoffs at such uselessness. Again, there may be activities which have not their source in the useful at all.  ...

We can affirm that actions are useful or useless, beneficial or injurious, but we cannot say with strict accuracy that an action is wise ; we can only say that the man who did it is wise.  ...  A very great number of actions might be submitted to us for judg- ment; are they right actionsor wrong?  ...
