FIT5047 – Intelligent Systems Week 3

Week number 3, titled ‘Knowledge Representation’ ran through propositional and first-order logic. Specific attention was paid to Inference, the prime reason for creating Knowledge Bases. I am a little bit cloudy on the methods for attaining inferences in Knowledge Bases. The lecture slides describe ‘Inference – Resolution Refutation’. To my understanding resolution can be attained through refutation or simply by applying the inference to clauses and determining the resolvent. There is.. Read More

FIT5059 – Adv. Prog. for DB Applications Week 3

Week 3 rolled on with Oracle form builder interface training. Although the power and ease of use that form builder presents is impressive, I think the contents of week three could be extrapolated in a simple tutorial/walkthrough. I am sure as David mentioned that the material ramps up to more complexity. The items that were covered in the lecture: Introduction to commonly used form objects Creating list of values (LOV)..

FIT5167 – Natural Computation Week 3

Week 3 of natural computation continued our step by step unraveling of the perceptron. We dealt with the case of classification and supervised training of a single perceptron. Although the concepts and logic are quite straight forward, there was some odd math operations that we spent a lot of our time on. I am not sure why we spent so much time on drawing the discriminant of a perceptron. I can’t see how it.. Read More

FIT5044 – Network Security Week 3

Network security’s third lecture saw an introduction to cryptography. We actually spent the first half of the lecture finishing discussion on week 2’s topics. First off came Private key vs Public key encryption a nice, clear, diagrammatic explanation of the difference can be for here: http://www.wdvl.com/Authoring/Tools/Tutorial/public_vs_private.html The main difference between the two being that a public key system has both public and private keys. In a private key system, the same key is.. Read More
