Decision Making Under Uncertainty: Theory and Application by Mykel J. KochenderferAn introduction to decision making under uncertainty from a computational perspective, covering both theory and applications ranging from speech recognition to airborne collision avoidance.
Many important problems involve decision making under uncertainty--that is, choosing actions based on often imperfect observations, with unknown outcomes. Designers of automated decision support systems must take into account the various sources of uncertainty while balancing the multiple objectives of the system. This book provides an introduction to the challenges of decision making under uncertainty from a computational perspective. It presents both the theory behind decision making models and algorithms and a collection of example applications that range from speech recognition to aircraft collision avoidance.
Focusing on two methods for designing decision agents, planning and reinforcement learning, the book covers probabilistic models, introducing Bayesian networks as a graphical model that captures probabilistic relationships between variables; utility theory as a framework for understanding optimal decision making under uncertainty; Markov decision processes as a method for modeling sequential problems; model uncertainty; state uncertainty; and cooperative decision making involving multiple interacting agents. A series of applications shows how the theoretical concepts can be applied to systems for attribute-based person search, speech applications, collision avoidance, and unmanned aircraft persistent surveillance.
Decision Making Under Uncertainty unifies research from different communities using consistent notation, and is accessible to students and researchers across engineering disciplines who have some prior exposure to probability theory and calculus. It can be used as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in fields including computer science, aerospace and electrical engineering, and management science. It will also be a valuable professional reference for researchers in a variety of disciplines.
For the First Time... Elvis Presley's ex|wife Tells All
Read the latest news, articles and interviews with Priscilla Presley. Priscilla Presley met Elvis Presley in , when she was At that time, Elvis was serving in the U. Armed Forces. They began a romance, and Priscilla eventually followed Elvis to the United States.
The couple first met eight years earlier, when he was stationed in Germany with the army and she lived on a military base with her Air Force Captain father. Although as a beyond-smitten year-old, Elvis did fill out a marriage license, writing in the name of his then-girlfriend Magdalene Morgan. He hastily scribbled both of their names in pencil in September , on the day that he and his family moved from Tupelo, Miss. Unsurprisingly, you can still get married by Elvis in Las Vegas. Because the ceremony was held at 9 a. They honeymooned for a month at a rented house in Palm Springs, a property that has since been turned into an Elvis museum because of course it has. Several years later, Elvis and Priscilla renewed their vows in Hawaii in a ceremony that was an almost scene-for-scene recreation of the wedding in his movie Blue Hawaii.
Elvis Presley was a rock 'n' roll superstar by the time he met year-old Priscilla Ann Wagner Beaulieu during a party at his home in Bad Nauheim, Germany. Despite being 10 years her senior, the two struck up a close friendship that, over time, blossomed into love. In May , when Priscilla was 21, they tied the knot in a minute ceremony at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas; photos from their laid-back wedding would go on to become some of the most iconic images of the couple if not only because of Priscilla's bangin' hair and makeup. In February , nine months to the day of their wedding, Elvis and "Cilla" welcomed their first and only child, Lisa Marie. Elvis was, by all accounts, a doting and loving dad who spoiled his little girl rotten. But plagued by the singer's drug addiction and infidelity, the relationship began to crumble.
