Agent-based modelling is a powerful tool when simulating human systems, yet when human behaviour cannot be described by simple rules or maximizing one’s own profit, we quickly reach the limits of this methodology. Machine learning has the potential to bridge this gap by providing a link between what people observe and how they act in order to reach...

This article addresses several key issues that have been raised related to subjective training load (TL) monitoring. These key issues include how TL is calculated if subjective TL can be used to model sports performance and where subjective TL monitoring fits into an overall decision-making framework for practitioners. Regarding how TL is calculate...

In this paper, we aim to develop distributed continuous-time algorithms over directed graphs to seek the Nash equilibrium in a noncooperative game. Motivated by the recent consensus-based designs, we present a distributed algorithm with a proportional gain for weight-balanced directed graphs. By further embedding a distributed estimator of the left...

Research and games both require the participant to make a series of choices. Active learning is a process borrowed from machine learning for algorithmically making choices that has become increasingly used to accelerate materials research. While this process may seem opaque to researchers outside the field of machine learning, examining active lear...

In the last few years several philosophers have highlighted the social dimension of imagination. In this paper I argue that thought experiments prompt social uses of imaginings, if we understand them as props in games of make-believe. In prescribing to imagine stories that develop through fictional narratives, authors of thought experiments prompt...
