  1. 1. Employee selection Mechanisms behind practitioners’ preference for hiring practices

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

    Author : Kristina Langhammer; Claudia Bernhard-Oettel; Johnny Hellgren; Scott Highhouse; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; employee selection decision making; employee data collection methods; hiring practices; self-efficacy; causal attribution; behavioral intention; agency; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Despite the great advances science has made in developing selection decision aids practitioners’ generally remain reluctant to adopt them. This phenomenon is considered today one of the greatest gaps in industrial, work and organizational psychology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Universal Instruction Selection

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gabriel Hjort Blindell; Christian Schulte; Peter van Beek; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; instruction selection; code generation; compilers; constraint programming; combinatorial optimization; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : In code generation, instruction selection chooses instructions to implement a given program under compilation, global code motion moves computations from one part of the program to another, and block ordering places program blocks in a consecutive sequence. Local instruction selection chooses instructions one program block at a time while global instruction selection does so for the entire function. READ MORE

  4. 4. Generation and Optimization of Motor Behaviors in Real and Simulated Robots

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Krister Wolff; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; behavior-based robotics; bipedal robots; behavior selection; evolutionary robotics; linear genetic programming; autonomous robots;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the problems of generating and optimizing motor behaviors for both simulated and real, physical robots have been investigated, using the paradigms of evolutionary robotics and behavior-based robotics. Specifically, three main topics have been considered: (1) On-line evolutionary optimization of hand-coded gaits for real, physical bipedal robots. READ MORE
