Sir Mike, the chairman of BT Group and deputy chairman of Barclays, said: "In three weeks' time, a Yes vote based on so many substantive questions unanswered will be a binary decision - a oneway ticket to uncertainty with no return and little likelihood of economic returns either.
It covers parallel statistical binary decision fusion, general network statistical decision fusion, some uncertain decision combinations, convex linear estimation fusion, Kalman filtering fusion, and robust estimation fusion.
The hierarchy of binary decision subtasks using SVMs is designed with clustering algorithms.
A promising approach is to use high-level decision diagrams (HLDD) [13] that, unlike ADDs, can be viewed as a generalization of binary decision diagrams (BDDs).
We show that licensing occurs more often in this setting than what the binary decision setting predicts, while it does not necessarily imply more component-sharing between the firms.
One common case in which benefit-cost analysis and therefore valuation research is deployed is the simple binary decision case.

Notably, he developed efficient algorithms based on ordered binary decision diagrams (OBDDs) to manipulate the logic functions that form the basis for computer designs.
However, the SVM was originally developed for binary decision problems, and its extension to multi-class problems is not straightforward.
Both symbolic model checking (SMC) and bounded model checking (BMC), where binary decision diagrams (BDDs) and propositional satisfiability (SAT) solvers respectively provide the core engines, are restricted to designs represented at the Boolean level.
