The problem of driving an autonomous vehicle in normal traffic engages many areas of AI research and has substantial economic significance. We describe work in progress on a new approach to this problem that uses a decision-theoretic architecture using dynamic probabilistic networks. The architecture provides a sound solution to the problems of sensor(More)
— This paper presents our experiences promoting active learning in programming courses from introductory to advanced levels. We use a variety of techniques as our courses vary greatly in size and our facilities vary in layout and equipment. For large lectures, we present active interludes that require students to work in small groups, respond to periodic(More)
ii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I must thank Dr. Lance Porter for his outstanding guidance, vast experience, and fantastic sense of humor throughout the past year. Without his supervision, I may never have made it past the research phase of this project. Credit also goes to my other committee members: Dr. Anne Osborne for her helpful insight and suggestions along the(More)
