101. Performance Evaluation of Autonomous Mobile Robots
Published: 2/1/2002
Authors: Adam S Jacoff, Elena R Messina, John Evans
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has initiated a program to develop quantitative metrics for machine intelligence. One of the possible approaches to evaluating machine intelligence is task-based performance testing, like a mo ...

103. Evaluating Knowledge and Representation for Intelligent Control
Published: 9/4/2001
Authors: Elena R Messina, John Evans, James S. Albus
Abstract: Knowledge and the way it is represented have a tremendous impact on the capabilities and performance of intelligent systems. There is evidence from studies of human cognitive functions that experts use multiple representations in problem solving t ...

107. Measuring Performance and Intelligence of Intelligent Sytems White Paper 2001
Published: 8/4/2001
Authors: Elena R Messina, Alex Meystel, Larry H Reeker
Abstract: Is the measurement of performance for intelligent systems different than that of non-intelligent systems? In this white paper, we explore the various dimensions of evaluation of intelligence and performance. The main areas we tackle are the testing ...
