While a number of algorithms for multiobjective reinforcement learning have been proposed, and a small number of applications developed, there has been very little rigorous empirical evaluation of the performance and limitations of these algorithms. This paper proposes standard methods for such empirical evaluation, to act as a foundation for future(More)
Authorship attribution is a growing field, moving from beginnings in linguistics to recent advances in text mining. Through this change came an increase in the capability of authorship attribution methods both in their accuracy and the ability to consider more difficult problems. Research into authorship attribution in the 19th century considered it(More)
Sequential decision-making problems with multiple objectives arise naturally in practice and pose unique challenges for research in decision-theoretic planning and learning, which has largely focused on single-objective settings. This article surveys algorithms designed for sequential decision-making problems with multiple objectives. Though there is a(More)
Multiobjective reinforcement learning algorithms extend reinforcement learning techniques to problems with multiple conflicting objectives. This paper discusses the advantages gained from applying stochastic policies to multiobjective tasks and examines a particular form of stochastic policy known as a mixture policy. Two methods are proposed for deriving(More)
Our approach to the author identification task uses existing authorship attribution methods using local n-grams (LNG) and performs a weighted ensemble. This approach came in third for this year’s competition, using a relatively simple scheme of weights by training set accuracy. LNG models create profiles, consisting of a list of character n-grams that best(More)
Authorship Analysis aims to extract information about the authorship of documents from features within those documents. Typically, this is performed as a classification task with the aim of identifying the author of a document, given a set of documents of known authorship. Alternatively, unsupervised methods have been developed primarily as visualisation(More)
Ripple Down Rules (RDR) is a maturing collection of methodologies for the incremental development and maintenance of medium to large rulebased knowledge systems. While earlier knowledge based systems relied on extensive modeling and knowledge engineering, RDR instead takes a simple no-model approach that merges the development and maintenance stages. Over(More)
Multiple Classification Ripple Down Rules (MCRDR) is a knowledge acquisition technique that produces representations, or knowledge maps, of a human expert’s knowledge of a particular domain. However, work on gaining an understanding of the knowledge acquired at a deeper meta-level or using the knowledge to derive new information is still in its infancy.(More)
