As the hand is unable to discriminate vibration stimuli of all frequencies, the vibration stimulus is discretization according to the result of the vibration discriminability experiment.
The pressure of discriminability competes with a second pressure in language use: that of regularity.
The ambiguity contingency consisted of the covariation of different degrees on incongruence between the shooting-response and the destruction of the target, associated to increasing difficulty in the visual discriminability of the targets.
So high dimensionality of feature descriptors implies high discriminability but low classification effectiveness both at the training and testing stages.
The item-total correlation was mostly above r > .45, showing a good discriminability of the scale items.
The workshop considered some of the challenging concepts that are encountered in court, including error rate, discriminability, certainty, variability, bias, uniqueness, and the identification decision.
Therefore, DSA could provide rich discriminability for SAR ATR.
This study was designed to (1) identify whether distinctive functional connectivity networks, such as the default mode network (DMN), can be detected from early-phase [sup.11]C-PIB data and (2) to explore the discriminability of the network derived from [sup.11]C-pPIB for distinguishing AD/MCI from CN.
There are good reasons to think that, at least, the elimination of the special treatment of delusions is not the best way to deal with the lack of discriminability of Schneiderian symptoms.
However, it fails to account for the magnitude characteristic points easily by utilizing this method, along with the shortage of discriminability. Therefore, except for the exploited nonlinear diffusion filter pyramid toward the Hamming space algorithms, a coarse-to-fine inspection policy is proposed that combined FAST with the strong scale point of the Shi--Tomasi [16] method.
As such, percentile ranking preserves discriminability (i.e., classification accuracy as measured by area under the receiver-operator curve performance), even when probabilities are not well calibrated.
