An Examination of Human Strategies for Acquiring Information ( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An experimental situation was developed in which the subject had the task of determining which of a set of possible events had occurred on each trial. After a fixed number of trials, the subject was asked to describe what he considered to be the best single way of asking his questions. This strategy was the primary datum of the experiment. A measure of 'goodness' was determined which was the average number of questions which would be required per trial if the strategy were used over a long series of trials. The experimental situation was viewed as a communication system in which the set of cards and the random process which generated outcomes (correct cards) determined an information source. The experimenter behaved as a channel which had the capacity of one bit per question and the subject's strategy encoded each outcome into a sequence of 'yes' and 'no' answers. As a result, it was possible to determine the lower bound on the average number of questions required for a given source and the efficiencies of strategies could be compared. On the basis of the results of the experiments, it was concluded that three main factors influenced the use of strategies. They were: (1) the extent to which the questions reflected the dominant characteristics of the stimuli; (2) the average amount of information which was obtained with questions; (3) the risk of having to use a large number of questions.
Explosive Charges for Use in Underwater Acoustic Trials ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An explosive device, consisting of fuze, booster and main charge, has been developed for generation of acoustic signals at various underwater depths. The signal arises from the fuze, or fuze plus booster, or from all three components. The concept has potential for quantity production of an inexpensive SUS charge but further development to improve reliability is required. (Author).
AN ANALYSIS OF SOME FAILURE DATA ( Book )
1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A summary is given of the rationale and statistical techniques employed in the analysis of some failure data obtained from operations performed by machines and people. These data are compared to frequency distributions arising from either an exponential or a normal theory of failure. The agreement between theory and data is evaluated. (Author).
