Abstract: A computer implemented method and apparatus for simulating an intelligent tutor for interactive adaptive training of learners in any domain includes a Domain Module, a Tutor Module and an Interface. Items to be learned, and their prerequisite and other dependency relationships are represented in a fuzzy graph, together with a fuzzy logic computational engine, which dynamically adapts the available sequence of training actions (such as presentations/explanations, simulations, exercises and tasks/questions) to a current assessment of the learner's knowledge skill, the level of difficulty of the presented material, and preferences and learning style of the individual learner. Fuzzy logic is used as the basis of arc weightings, and the computations, but the general methodology is applicable to other approaches to weighting in computation.
Abstract: An electro-optic display comprises first and second substrates and a lamination adhesive layer and a layer of a solid electro-optic material disposed between the first and second substrates, the lamination adhesive layer having a volume resistivity, measured at 10° C., which does not change by a factor of more than about 3 after being held at 25° C. and 45 percent relative humidity for 1000 hours. The electro-optic material is preferably an encapsulated electrophoretic material. Other desirable characteristics of lamination adhesives for use in electro-optic displays are also described.
