He has instead turned to the Wii Active computer programme to ensure he is ready to run.
Among the topics are pattern generation using level-set-based curve evolution, information theory approaches for next-best view planning in active computer vision, techniques for detecting unsupervised changes based on a self-organizing feature map neural network, and reusing knowledge when designing models of computational intelligence.
Choose active computer games like Wii - or encourage them to get fresh air and exercise by playing outside, or by taking part in sports activities at school or through clubs.

The bad news is that guaranteed behavior is impossible to achieve--with or without people in the operational loop; there are inherent risks in relying on computer systems operating under critical requirements (especially those that are complex and necessary for controlling real-time environments, such as in fly-by-wire aircraft that are aerodynamically unstable and cannot be flown without active computer control.
