Experiment 20140225-NOOR

add > replace > delete

Experiment design

DockerOS DockerEXP

Date: 2014-02-25

Hypotheses: - The add modality reaches a better F-measure than replace which reaches a better F-measure than delete. - The add modality on 4 agents outperforms LogMap and Alcomo

Variation of: 20140224-NOOR

4 agents; 10 runs; 500 games

Adaptation operators: delete replace add

Experimental setting: This is the same setting as [20140224-NOOR], except that the exercise run 10 times for 500 iteration


controled variables: ['revisionModality']

dependent variables: ['srate', 'fmeas', 'conv']

Raw results



Initial results

Result files are not available. Hence the data below are those of the original notebook.

  • Plain lines are success rates; dashed lines are F-measure
  • In blue, add;
  • In green, replace;
  • In red, delete;
  • In black, the Alcomo baseline.
modality success convergence Incoherence degree F-measure
Initial 0.49 0.20
Delete 0.90 445 0.0 0.16
Replace 0.81 489 0.0 0.18
Add 0.62 500+ 0.0 0.26
LogMap 1 0.0 0.25
Alcomo 1 0.0 0.26


Key points:

  • The situation is better than with three agents in which case very often the revision deletes all the correspondences which are not top=top
  • Clearly add outperforms replace which is slightly better than delete
  • Add has not converged after 500 iterations (on 10 runs), it takes around 1200 iterations
  • Again, the baseline is reached, but not improved.

Among the runs, there is a lot of variety, any of the system may reach the highest F-measure (with the add modality).

Further experiments:

  • Further increase the number of agents
  • Try with more elaborate modalities
