Perception-Action System Response Cycle with Time Delays

Edwin Gary Schasteen
The purpose of this model is to explore the effect of time delays in the perception-action-system response on learning/convergence of stable goal seeking models in various contexts. 
The goal of this model is to explore the effects of time delays between perception/processing of sensory input by people, actions chosen by those, and response of the environment and how fast the people are able to learn new skills. The hypothesis is that the shorter the time delay between when a person acts on sensory input from the environment, and when they receive and perceive whether their action was "correct" or "incorrect" by sensory signals from the environmental response to their action, the quicker the person will learn/refine the new skill(s) associated with the actions they are taking.

The Information Distribution Problem

Rayne Man
The Information Distribution Problem   Exploring a basis for distributing and organizing information is critical to the foundations of any system. It's a losing battle trying to combat information intake, without informative output. If we lived in a world with a technological system designed to do so, everyone's lives would be affected for the better. 

 By selectively designing the following technologies, a global system of education based on the validity of information is establishable.

Causal Loop Education System

Karly Dyson
This diagram depicts the cause and effect of how different variables in the education system affect student performance and education quality. Curriculum and Federal Funding can positively and negatively impact the quality of education of a school. The better the quality education, the better a student will likely perform in class. When a student performs better or worse, that affects the test score outcome. When test scores are higher or lower, that affects the amount of federal funding given to the school. High stakes testing increases students' stress levels, which can lead to a negative student performance on tests.

Lotka-Volterra Model: Prey-Predator Simulation

Pavan Kumar Guntur

​Predator-prey models are the building masses of the bio-and environments as bio masses are become out of their asset masses. Species contend, advance and scatter essentially to look for assets to support their battle for their very presence. Contingent upon their particular settings of uses, they can take the types of asset resource-consumer, plant-herbivore, parasite-have, tumor cells- immune structure, vulnerable irresistible collaborations, and so on. They manage the general misfortune win connections and thus may have applications outside of biological systems. At the point when focused connections are painstakingly inspected, they are regularly in actuality a few types of predator-prey communication in simulation. 


Looking at Lotka-Volterra Model:

The well known Italian mathematician Vito Volterra proposed a differential condition model to clarify the watched increment in predator fish in the Adriatic Sea during World War I. Simultaneously in the United States, the conditions contemplated by Volterra were determined freely by Alfred Lotka (1925) to portray a theoretical synthetic response wherein the concoction fixations waver. The Lotka-Volterra model is the least complex model of predator-prey communications. It depends on direct per capita development rates, which are composed as f=b−py and g=rx−d. 

A detailed explanation of the parameters:

  • The parameter b is the development rate of species x (the prey) without communication with species y (the predators). Prey numbers are reduced by these collaborations: The per capita development rate diminishes (here directly) with expanding y, conceivably getting to be negative. 

  • The parameter p estimates the effect of predation on x˙/x. 

  • The parameter d is the death rate of species y without connection with species x. 

  • The term rx means the net rate of development of the predator population in light of the size of the prey population.

Clone of How tutors help the learner causal loop

Christine E Capra

This paints a broad picture for my non-profit of how tutoring helps disadvantaged youth and, with the right jump-start from a caring individual (R1 point), how learning can get learning and skill begets further skill. I appreciate any feedback to modifications because they might shape program direction.

Future iterations will show the low skilled isolated individual gets stuck in a cycle of "no-growth." I would also like to explore the dynamics of how the learner reduces dependence on the tutor.
