  • Mini-computer-based monitor systems are possible with reasonable effort and good success using commercially available components. A brief review of measurement principles is followed by a description of a system consisting of an 8-bit computer with 32 K random access memory, serial and parallel input/output ports, dual floppy disc program and data storage, printer, and a custom designed analog-to-digital conversion module. All equipment except wiring to the A/D section is readily available from commercial suppliers.
  • Illinois Solar '80, a residential passive solar construction program targeted at Illinois vocational schools traditionally involved in home building projects, is discussed. Conducted by the Illinois Institute of Natural Resources (INR), the first round of this program has resulted in the construction of 18 energy efficient passive solar homes by 17 vocational schools throughout the state. The major program components of Illinois Solar '80 are: (1) an open solicitation process, (2) professional training in passive design and construction, (3) $1000 grant award to each school, (4) technical assistance, (5) promotional support, and (6) site visits. A total agency investment ofmore » $29,000 in direct costs has resulted in training over 650 building trades students in passive solar design through construction of 18 solar homes.« less
  • Many of the difficulties encountered in the development of process models can be expressed as inverse problems. Important examples of these are the estimation of boundary conditions, the transfer of data between material models operating on different scales and the derivation of minimal material and process models for real time process control. This paper comments on the benefits of viewing such problems as being solvable through the application of inverse analysis techniques. Two such techniques, using Sensitivity Coefficients and a Genetic Algorithm are commented upon. For the latter recent, initial, results are presented for the estimation of temperature dependent convectionmore » coefficients with and without temperature measurement noise.« less
  • This paper presents several upper and lower bounds for the number-of-bits required for solving a classification problem, as well as ways in which these bounds can be used to efficiently build neural network chips. The focus will be on complexity aspects pertaining to neural networks: (1) size complexity and depth (size) tradeoffs, and (2) precision of weights and thresholds as well as limited interconnectivity. They show difficult problems-exponential growth in either space (precision and size) and/or time (learning and depth)-when using neural networks for solving general classes of problems (particular cases may enjoy better performances). The bounds for the number-of-bitsmore » required for solving a classification problem represent the first step of a general class of constructive algorithms, by showing how the quantization of the input space could be done in O (m{sup 2}n) steps. Here m is the number of examples, while n is the number of dimensions. The second step of the algorithm finds its roots in the implementation of a class of Boolean functions using threshold gates. It is substantiated by mathematical proofs for the size O (mn/{Delta}), and the depth O [log(mn)/log{Delta}] of the resulting network (here {Delta} is the maximum fan in). Using the fan in as a parameter, a full class of solutions can be designed. The third step of the algorithm represents a reduction of the size and an increase of its generalization capabilities. Extensions by using analogue COMPARISONs, allows for real inputs, and increase the generalization capabilities at the expense of longer training times. Finally, several solutions which can lower the size of the resulting neural network are detailed. The interesting aspect is that they are obtained for limited, or even constant, fan-ins. In support of these claims many simulations have been performed and are called upon.« less
