The introduction is certainly the most read section of any deliverable, and it largely determines the attitude of the reader/reviewer will have toward the work. Therefore, it is probably the most delicate part of the writing of a report.
Unfortunately, many people (even very experienced ones) seem to have difficulties at writing a good introduction. For some, it is a daunting task.
A rock is the ultimate example of inanimate, dead matter. After all, it just sits there, and only moves if it is pushed. But what if some minerals are not as stone-dead as we thought?
Chemist Graham Cairns-Smith has spent his entire scientific career pushing a simple, radical idea: life did not begin with fiddly organic molecules like DNA, but with simple crystals.
a , 20 replicated training runs with different random-number seeds for a DNC and LSTM. Only the DNC was able to complete the learning curriculum. b , A single DNC was able to solve a large percentage of problems optimally from each previous lesson (perfect), with a few episodes solved in extra moves (success), and some failures to satisfy all constraints (incomplete).
a , DNC. With 10 goals, the performance of a DNC network with respect to satisfying constraints in minimal time as the minimum number of moves to a goal and the number of constraints in a goal are varied. Performance was highest with a large number of constraints in each goal. b , The performance of an LSTM on the same test.
Qualitative and quantitative research designs are the two main methods used by social scientists today. They are used with a variety of research methods and have been a common thread in case studies. Compare and contrast elements of qualitative and quantitative research methods in terms of descriptive and case study designs. What qualitative and quantitative analyses would be useful in interpreting and analyzing the results of a survey?
The basic purpose of research is discovery. The early formation of faculties and scientists gathering under the auspices of peer reviewing bodies of the Renaissance, catalyzed what we view today as legitimate scientific research through quantitative methods (Creswell, 2003). Later, questions arising from complex human interactions and the failure of statistically accurate models would catalyze legitimacy for other research methods, including qualitative observation and discovery (Trochim, 2001).
Analysis of how the polls did
To our special friend and brilliant colleague Warren Mitofsky. the leader of a community of pollsters. He will be remembered and missed.
This s a room where you can write a note with a subject, time, and place to meet other people for a discussion of your choosing. These meetings have no format and are not pre-planned, so have fun.
We empirically evaluate the proposed scheme
and apply it on a real neuroimaging dataset to investigate associations between brain activity and behavior measurements.
