We studied the potential benefit of using artificial neural networks (ANNs) for the diagnosis of thyroid function. We examined two types of ANN architecture and assessed their robustness in the face of diagnostic noise. The thyroid function data we used had previously been studied by multivariate statistical methods and a variety of pattern-recognition(More)
In this paper we seek to understand how individuals, as part of a group facilitated modelling setting, commit themselves to a set of actions, as a basis of sense-making, sense-giving and coordinated actions.

Assessing the value of investments in network security operations remains a challenging problem. We suggest that an essential component of an analysis of this problem must be an account of the structure of the system/network and the services it is intended to deliver. We apply the methods of classical applied mathematics-using tools drawn from algebra,(More)
