I work as a research assistant in the Computer Science department at the Bar Ilan University in Israel.

My main research interest is: developing a Natural-Language-Understanding unit for an autonomous Negotiation-Agent, based on a Textual-Entailment engine.

The links are very useful indeed. 22h accepted Equivalence of independent set and set packing 22h asked Is set packing easier when the sets are squares? 22h comment Careless packingSorry for the naive question, but, can you please explain what do you mean by "come to an impasse"? What happens if you take the following sequence: 0.5, 0.25, 0.125, 0.125, 0, 0, ...? 23h answered Algorithms for set packing 1d accepted Convergence of a binary sequence 1d comment Convergence of a binary sequenceOK, I see. After each group of 0's the argument drops to at most 1/3, and after each group of 1's the argument rises to at least 2/3, therefore there can be no limit. 1d asked Convergence of a binary sequence 1d awarded Popular Question 1d comment Calculating the classification threshold efficiently@D.W. That is interesting. Do you know of any studies that compared these different threshold calculation methods? 1d comment Cutting rectangles while keeping the remainder connected"there is hope, because if each topping is a horizontal strip, you can cut vertical slices that cross each strip." - exactly, this is what I think. The difference between 1 and 2 dimensions is that in 2 dimensions you don't have to cut the entire horizontal strip - you can cut just a vertical strip and leave some open space for connection. 1d comment Set packing variantThanks! So the two variants are equivalent. 1d accepted Set packing variant 1d asked Cutting rectangles while keeping the remainder connected 1d asked Set packing variant
