  4. 4. On the Metric-based Approach to Supervised Concept Learning

    University dissertation from Ronneby : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Niklas Lavesson; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; classifier evaluation; supervised learning; metric; criteria;

    Abstract : A classifier is a piece of software that is able to categorize objects for which the class is unknown. The task of automatically generating classifiers by generalizing from examples is an important problem in many practical applications. This problem is often referred to as supervised concept learning, and has been shown to be relevant in e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reproducing Traditional Discourses of Teaching and Learning Mathematics Studies of Mathematics and ICT in Teaching and Teacher Education

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg: Department of Applied Information Technology
