Virtual reality : scientific and technological challenges by Committee on virtual reality research and development (Etats-Unis)( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite widespread popular and professional interest in virtual reality, research and development efforts in synthetic environments (SE) - the field encompassing virtual environments, augmented reality, and teleoperation - have remained fragmented. Virtual Reality is the first serious, integrated treatment of the topic, presenting current knowledge from several disciplines along with thought-provoking vignettes about a future in which SE is commonplace. This volume discusses all aspects of creating a system that will allow human operators to see, hear, smell, taste, move about, give commands, respond to conditions, and manipulate objects effectively in a virtual environment. The committee of computer scientists, engineers, and psychologists on the leading edge of SE development explores the potential applications of SE in the areas of manufacturing, medicine, education, training, scientific visualization, and teleoperation in hazardous environments. The committee also charts directions for development of improved SE technology, needed studies of human behavior and evaluation of SE systems, and government policy and infrastructure."--Jacket

Attitudes, aptitudes, and aspirations of American youth : implications for military recruiting by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recruiting an all-volunteer military is a formidable task. To successfully enlist one eligible recruit, the Army must contact approximately 120 young people. The National Research Council explores the various factors that will determine whether the military can realistically expect to recruit an adequate fighting force--one that will meet its upcoming needs. It also assesses the military's expected manpower needs and projects the numbers of youth who are likely to be available during the next 20 years to meet these needs. With clearly written text and useful graphics, Attitudes, Aptitudes, and Aspirations of American Youth offers an overview of important issues for military recruiters, touching on a number of important topics including: sex and race, education and aptitude, physical and moral attributes, and military life and working conditions. In addition, the book looks at how a potential recruit would approach the decision to enlist, considering personal, family, and social values, and the options for other employment or college. Building on the need to increase young Americans' "propensity to enlist, " this book offers useful recommendations for increasing educational opportunities while in the service and for developing advertising strategies that include concepts of patriotism and duty to country. Of primary value to military policymakers, recruitment officers, and analysts, Attitudes, Aptitudes, and Aspirations of American Youth will also interest social scientists and policy makers interested in youth trends
Evaluating military advertising and recruiting : theory and methodology by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

10 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an evaluation framework that links different types of research questions to different research methodologies. The framework identifies four major categories of research questions and four broad methodological approaches. The first category of research question asks: [beta]What does a target audience see as attractive or unattractive features of a program?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via qualitative methods, such as focus groups; unstructured or open-ended surveys; and interviews. The second category of research question asks: [beta]What is the effect of a program on specified attitudes or behavioral intentions?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via surveys, experiments, and quasi-experiments. The third category of research question asks [beta]What is the effect of a proposed new program on enlistment?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via experiments and quasi-experiments. The final category of research question asks [beta]What is the effect of an existing program on enlistment?[gamma] It is well suited to examination via econometric modeling

Development and implementation of a curriculum-based information support system for Hamline University by Anne S Mavor( Book )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An information system analysis, development, and implementation program was conducted at Hamline University to create a dynamic, responsive targeted information system that would support curriculum-based requirements. Existing information system inadequacies were diagnosed; a new concept was proposed and empirically tested. The concept was put into effect on a small scale and used to project the requirements of an expanded operation, and a full-scale system was implemented. The system focused upon the information specialists who linked information requirements generated by the curriculum to information resources; task models of courses were constructed and used to derive information needs and to evaluate products and services. The system proved to be effective, for interactions with librarians rose by a factor of three for students and 14 for faculty. Material provided from off-site sources increased tenfold and the judged effectiveness of disseminated materials was around 85 percent. Professors expanded the range of material in their courses and modified the format of some courses due to the availability of the information specialists, who became the partners of the professors in enriching the educational experiences of the students.

A feasibility study for establishing an information switching center at Hamline University by Herbert F Johnson( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1967 investigation to examine and assess the Hamline University Library's role in Hamline's educational program and to identify directions for its contributions to this program in the future are summarized in this study. The results of this study showed that the Hamline University was not meeting the information needs of the faculty and students. Based on the prediction that informational material will continue to increase in amount and diversity and that user needs will follow the same trend, it was apparent that, if the library continued to operate in the traditional mode, its contribution to the educational program would become progressively less significant. Thus, it was recommended that the library increase both services and resources by adding a switching center service. This service would establish a detailed specification of user information requirements and attempt to satisfy these requirements either through the collection at the Hamline University library or by tapping the collections and services available at other information centers. With these arrangements the library could provide information support for all aspects of the educational program. The workability of the switching center system was demonstrated. (Author/NH)
Simulation of a schema theory-based knowledge delivery system for scientists by W. S Vaughan( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A future, automated, interactive, knowledge delivery system for use by researchers was tested using a manual cognitive model. Conceptualized from schema/frame/script theories in cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence, this hypothetical system was simulated by two psychologists who interacted with four researchers in microbiology to define functional measurements for computer applications. The system worked in real time to provide knowledge delivery services to real research problems through three phases of systems operations--diagnosis, search, and product design. Main systems elements included research paradigms as procedural scripts, information needs as weakly specified frame terminals, and content models as frames. The system's schema enables it to generate representations of information needs as schemata, to plan and conduct targeted searches for relevant information, and to use its inductive and deductive inferencing capabilities. Appendices include interviewing procedures to generate topics and methodological paradigms as well as case studies of actual searches. Nineteen references are included. (Author/RAA)
