After 30 s, the search mission is commenced. The updated probability map is transmitted to the service vehicles every 5 s by the host computer. The final configuration of planar position and the trajectories of all service vehicles for different time steps, 40 s, 90 s, 180 s are shown in Figure 6-3.1-1-c. The distribution density function based on the most updated probability maps are also shown in the figures. The color intensity is proportional to the value of distribution density function at each point. It can be seen from this figure that the configuration of service vehicles in the environment is optimal according to time-varying density…

Probability concepts like faith, as it exists in the dim intuition, through school education, the surface of that understanding, intuition often conflicts that again with a different point of view, must be thinking more in-depth study to be able to understand. Hot Monty Hall problem, and that is one example. There is not a simple probability, long confused with so many people and academics, the more deeply ponder the problems found. Since 1990, 1991 flared up in hot to 2000, there are more…

as numeracy. Age. Older individuals don’t understand risk information as well, both overestimate and underestimate probabilities (Fuller, Dudley, & Blacktop, 2001), worse risk comprehension than younger individuals (Fausset & Rogers, 2012). Much of the literature supports the idea that decision making effectiveness…

uncertainty. When an “outcome is the result of adding the outcomes of many separate performances, all in certain respects uniform”; in other words, when the frequency-ratio is known, then the experiment is named divisible, while a non-divisible or non-seriable experiment is one which “can be neither itself broken down into a number of uniform additive parts nor treated as part of a divisible experiment” (p. 8). In a non-divisible experiment the frequency-ratio standpoint has no actual sense. One…

objects without using categorical concepts. Thinking of the categories involves a priori reasoning, which is what Kant aimed to prove (Robinson, 2013), (Gardener, 1999). The second argument proposed by Kant and one that I will not be discussing is the apperception argument. In brief, this argument proposes that experience consists of an objective, category-dependent world that is required on behalf of self-awareness. However, it is key to note that a transcendental deduction contrasts from for…

seek conclusions, which are subjective and can be deceptive. Many times I have been mislead by my senses, making me hesitant to trust empirical observations. I trust logic and reason over my own sensory observations when making conclusions in my own life. In the NHL, there has been a large movement due to advancement in technology, to adapt rationalism philosophies over empiricism. Rationalism is imperfect due to the interpretation of our senses, while rationalism uses logic and reason to form…

In particular, Mathematics is thought to be an example of this sort of knowledge. Mathematicians don't arrive at theorems through empirical means, in fact many, if not all are actually established through the process of reasoning. Socrates may display and defend his theory through the slave boy and the geometry problem, but immediately it becomes somewhat obvious that the mathematical truth shown is universally true. It applies to every existing square and any square that may exist in the…

knowledge comes from reason, nor that all knowledge comes from experience. Instead, Kant’s main intention was to define the limits, and capacity of pure reason. He desired to figure out what reason alone can determine without the help of the senses. Kant concurred that knowledge begins with experience; however he did not agree that experience is the only source of all knowledge (Kant, 1998, p. 99). He clarified his analysis that valid knowledge is produced by a combination of reason,…

is an extremely personal approach to an overarching idea of knowledge. Not only questioning that around us but questioning why we find it valid. It is in that distinction that epistemology differs from metaphysics. Whereas metaphysics questions how and why something may or may not exist, epistemology asks us how we know our conclusions to be true. (2. Vocabulary: List and define at least 10 terms that you did not know or fully understand before reading this chapter and reviewing the content?…

Prologomena to Any Future Metaphysics. In order to understand Kant’s concept of metaphysics, it is important to note the differences between a priori knowledge and a posteriori knowledge. A posteriori knowledge is knowledge gained via experience, while a priori knowledge is knowledge that is gained without experience. Kant claims that metaphysics “must never be derived from experience ...(and) is therefore a priori cognition, coming from pure understanding and pure reason” (Kant, 266). In other…
