Military Technology;2010, Vol. 34 Issue 12, p26
The article offers information on the simulation technologies and their effectiveness in military simulations and training. It mentions that the said technology can be reached through Defense Simulation Internet (SIMNET), a distributed wide area broadband network. Meanwhile, it cites the features of the U.S. Close Combat Tactical Trainer-Reconfigurable Vehicle Simulator system (CCTT-RVS). Moreover, the effectiveness of the artificial intelligence (AI) is presented.

    In this paper, we describe a modified fixed-threshold sequential minimal optimization (FSMO) for 1-slack structural support vector machine (SVM) problems. Because the modified FSMO uses the fact that the formulation of 1-slack structural SVMs has no bias, it breaks down the quadratic programming...

    In many cooperative multiagent domains, the effect of local interactions between agents can be compactly represented as a network structure. Given that agents are spread across such a network, agents directly interact only with a small group of neighbors. A distributed constraint optimization...
