Studies of mental arithmetic have shown that adults solve simple arithmetic problems by retrieving an answer automatically from a network of stored associations. However, most studies have been limited to single-digit addition and multiplication problems. In this article, we examine whether retrieval is also automatic in the context of more complex(More)
At the request of The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the differences in performance of various manufacturers' Flight Management Systems (FMSs) and their associated Flight Management Computers (FMCs) have been a focus of research by these authors at The MITRE Corporation since 2004. While published Area Navigation (RNAV) and Required Navigation(More)
The differences in performance of various manufacturers' Flight Management Systems (FMSs) and their associated Flight Management Computers (FMCs) have the potential for significant impact on the air traffic control system and as such need to be examined and reexamined. While Performance-Based Navigation (PBN), Area Navigation (RNAV) and Required Navigation(More)
– In museums, to conserve the existing artwork is a vital issue. To achieve this purpose, it is fundamental to monitor its environment, either in storage or exhibition rooms. The deployment of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) can help to implement these measurements continuously, in a real-time basis, and in a much easier and cheaper way than when using(More)

This paper presents the events based on different scenario (with no wind) in scenario 1 all systems met all attitude constraints, also all but one system met the 280 nots speed constraint within 10 knots. In scenario 2 (un-forecasted wind not entered into the FMS) several systems wer not able to comply with the altitude restriction at PLDGE. The full VNAV(More)
Although non-goal-oriented dialogue systems have been around for many years (more than forty years indeed, if we consider Weizenbaum's Eliza system as the starting milestone), they have been recently gaining a lot of popularity in both research and commercial arenas. From the commercial stand point, non-goal-oriented dialogue seems to be providing an(More)
While textual reviews have become prominent in many recommendation based systems, automated frameworks to provide relevant visual cues against text reviews where pictures are not available is a new form of task confronted by data mining and machine learning researchers. Suggestions of pictures that are relevant to the content of a review could significantly(More)
Studies of elementary calculation have shown that adults solve basic subtraction problems faster with problems presented in addition format (e.g., 6 ± = 13) than in standard subtraction format (e.g., 13 - 6 = ). Therefore, it is considered that adults solve subtraction problems by reference to the inverse operation (e.g., for 13 - 6 = 7, "I know that 13 is(More)
