The education authorities in the Belgium French Community have been cautious to avoid waste and wary of prematurely rushing the diffusion of the new information technologies. However, many initiatives have been taken at local levels with recommendations and support from centralized levels. Three types of organizing authorities oversee the educational system of the French Community. The structure of the system and the more general developments in the educational uses of computers are described first. Policy and practices under the specific organizing authorities are then reviewed in turn. All discussion refers only to the period up until 1994. This report was prepared in 1994. Its realisation owes thanks to the participation of the Inspectors Cambier, Denis, Desir, Hannon, Huberty Mathot, Mossiat, Simon, and Verlove. [less ▲]

This study addresses the question of how trans-national regulations could stimulate environmentally friendly and socially responsible transportation. Three scenarios are developed for 2010, taking into account various costs related to road, rail, and inland waterway transportation, including costs to society and environmental costs. The attractiveness of different containerized transport modes is calculated for a representative freight corridor in the European Union. The modal split is adjusted for the capacity limitations of the different modes. Analysis of the results reveals that dedicated cargo rail and inland waterways, the two more socially responsible transportation modes, are already relatively attractive to shippers, but lack sufficient capacity to deal with forecasted demand. Further legislative interventions, such as increased taxation, would therefore only increase the financial burden to shippers and society. Important investments appear necessary for the further development of dedicated cargo rail and inland waterways. [less ▲]

In this paper, we address the problem of computing interpretable solutions to reinforcement learning (RL) problems. To this end, we propose a search algorithm over a space of simple losed-form formulas that are used to rank actions. We formalize the search for a high-performance policy as a multi-armed bandit problem where each arm corresponds to a candidate policy canonically represented by its shortest formula-based representation. Experiments, conducted on standard benchmarks, show that this approach manages to determine both efficient and interpretable solutions. [less ▲]

This paper introduces a novel algorithm for approximate policy search in continuous-state, discrete-action Markov decision processes (MDPs). Previous policy search approaches have typically used ad-hoc parameterizations developed for specific MDPs. In contrast, the novel algorithm employs a flexible policy parameterization, suitable for solving general discrete-action MDPs. The algorithm looks for the best closed-loop policy that can be represented using a given number of basis functions, where a discrete action is assigned to each basis function. The locations and shapes of the basis functions are optimized, together with the action assignments. This allows a large class of policies to be represented. The optimization is carried out with the cross-entropy method and evaluates the policies by their empirical return from a representative set of initial states. We report simulation experiments in which the algorithm reliably obtains good policies with only a small number of basis functions, albeit at sizable computational costs. [less ▲]

What variables influence the electoral behaviour of citizens voting in home country elections from abroad? Despite the growing interest of migration scholars for the topic of external voting, this question remains largely unanswered. Basing ourselves on the existing political science literature on electoral behaviour and on the migration literature on immigrants’ participation in host country politics, we isolate different hypotheses that explain emigrants’ preferences in home country politics. We then build four models of voters based on these hypotheses: the social group voter, the ideological voter, the interest-driven voter, and the transnational voter. In the second part of the paper, we verify the validity of these models using the results of a survey carried out with Bolivian emigrants who took part in the 2009 Bolivian presidential election from abroad. Overall, this article identifies the drivers of immigrant transnational political participation and contributes to current debates on social remittances. [less ▲]
