Top Down Process

...Top-Down Process In unknown situations with unfamiliar objects human beings can use contextual information to assume what things are and what is going on around them. This is a process that we all use on a daily basis; we use it unconsciously but do not understand we are using it. Some researchers in the scientific community believe that this unconscious act is controlled in the area of the brain known as the pre-frontal cortex (PFC). The information that follows is an attempt to explain what top-down process is, explain the pre-frontal cortex and will discuss why researchers believe the two are connected. Top-Down Process In simple terms top-down process could be described as large to small thinking. Alleydog.com defines top-down process as: “large chink” processing and states that we form perceptions (or focus attention) by starting with the larger concept or idea (it can even be the concept or idea of an object) and then working our way down to the finer details or that concept or idea (n.d.). This definition leads to the question of where this processing could be taking place. Reasoning leads us to believe that top-down processing occurs in the prefrontal cortex. Prefrontal Cortex According to Miller and Cohen, the prefrontal cortex, “is a collection of interconnected neocortical areas that sends and receives projections from virtually all the cortical sensory systems, motor systems and many subcortical structures” (p. 168, 2001).

...customers in the United States. The company also makes chocolates and baked goods to include in the gift baskets. It has grown extensively over the years and is currently one of the biggest companies in the Pacific Northwest. Recently, Harriet’s descendants, who still run the company, have identified a need to immediately report when fruit is starting to ripen and should be picked and placed in cold storage. Employees in the marketing department have identified a need to access inventory data for the fruit in the orchards and in cold storage. With this data, they can design and sell gift-basket products that take advantage of the ripe fruit. This data must also be fed into e-commerce applications so that web orders can correctly specify product availability. In addition, the company recently hired an ambitious programmer who is anxious to use her knowledge of SAS programming, SQL, and DB2 to design reporting applications for senior management. She calls you every day with new ideas on what she could accomplish if the network were upgraded so that she could reach up-to-date data from the orchards and cold storage buildings. As the network designer for this company, you have been charged with selecting network technologies to reach the orchards and cold storage buildings. Each of the six orchards has a shack with one or two standalone PCs and a printer. The three cold storage buildings are huge warehouses that include a few standalone PCs and printers. The......

Active Directory Design Scenario

...Apply Activity 1: Active Directory Design Scenario When integrating AD DS with an existing DNS namespace, we recommend that you do the following: Install the DNS Server service on every domain controller in the forest. This provides fault tolerance if one of the DNS servers is unavailable. In this way, domain controllers do not need to rely on other DNS servers for name resolution. This also simplifies the management environment because all domain controllers have a uniform configuration. Configure the Active Directory forest root domain controller to host the DNS zone for the Active Directory forest. Configure the domain controllers for each regional domain to host the DNS zones that correspond to their Active Directory domains. Configure the zone containing the Active Directory forest-wide locator records to replicate to every DNS server in the forest by using the forest-wide DNS application directory partition. A computer might have a different existing DNS name if the organization previously, statically registered the computer in DNS or if the organization previously deployed an integrated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) solution. If your client computers already have a registered DNS name, when the domain to which they are joined is upgraded to Windows Server 2008 AD DS, they will have two different names: The existing DNS name. The new fully qualified domain name (FQDN) Clients can still be located by either name. Any existing DNS, DHCP, or integrated......

Week 4 – Active Directory Design Scenario

...Week 4 – Active Directory Design Scenario Since the two new braches office will be directly connected to main office you can configure hub and spoke topology. I would also recommend in hub site to have minimum two DC for redundancy. In the event of failure if second DC does not exist irrespective of OS version AD replication will be down totally. At least in the hub site you should have additional DC if not present. Branch 1 – For this site I would recommend setting up another line to the main hub to remove single point of failure. Also setting a backup for branch 1 located at main site and if possible at branch 2. A two way trust will need to be set up to support backup at main site/branch 2 if servers fail at branch 1. To support AD replication I would use two way trust network. Branch 2 – With branch 2 being located at a remote site I would recommend setting a VSAT system to remove the single point of failure. With the slow speed at this branch it would not make for a very good backup site. I would use two way trusts for replication of services. *Recommendations for Optimum Performance For Active Directory replication, a rule of thumb is that a given domain controller that acts as a bridgehead server should not have more than 50 active simultaneous replication connections at any given time in a replication window. (This was determined on a reference server that had four Pentium III Xeon processors with 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM and 2 megabytes (MB) of L2 cache.)......

Active Directory Design Scenario

...Active Directory Design Scenario My first question: Is what type of business or industry the company represents? Who will be the executive sponsor, the project architect, project manager? Will this person also be in charge of the Active Directory? What is the budget, time-frame and schedule of this project? Does the other company have an IT Administrator or are they using a consultant? If so, it would be more cost effective to hire an IT Administrator. What are the business needs of the company we are merging with? Who is the WAN person responsible for the network? Have him/her provide a map of your current WAN network. What applications will be integrated in the AD/DS design? Will a variety of technologies, different levels of security and a global presence now or in the future be required? Where will all your data be stored? Will we be having geographically separate data rooms? Who are the Active Directory Service and Data Owners? (Service owners include the forest owner, the AD/DNS owner, and the site topology owner. The Data Owners will include organizational unit Owners. Will the other site have a Service Administrator or a Data Administrator? Because it is cost saving having Data Administrators. The Data Administrators are users within a Domain, who are responsible for both, maintaining data that is stored in the AD/DS i.e. user and group accounts and maintaining computers that are members of their domain.

Active Directory Design Scenario

...Active Directory Design Scenario When implementing a new AD DS infrastructure there are many business-related questions that need answered in order to accurately design a domain hierarchy. Below is what we need to know to effectively accomplish this, including the number of DCs, geographical placement, number of domains/forests etc. Ideally, all servers should run the latest version of windows and take advantage of all the advanced features available with the newest software. DC deployment configuration Decisions to make- Deploy a separate forest without any trusts? Deploy a new forest with federation? Deploy a new forest with Windows Server Active Directory forest trust for Kerberos? Extend Corp forest by deploying a replica DC? Extend Corp forest by deploying a new child domain or domain tree? Factors to consider- Security- what is your security plan? Compliance- is there any compliance codes or concerns? Cost- what is the budget? Resiliency and fault-tolerance- is there any implemented? Application compatibility- software and hardware compatibility Geographical Placement There can be a central location where all servers are located and use WAN links for sites to query DCs and DNS servers for network resources. Also, you may place DCs at sites if bandwidth utilization is at a premium. Needed to determine the number of DCs Collect the network info Plan domain controller placement Create a site design Create a site link design Create a site link......

Discuss Gregory's Top Down Theory of Perceptual Organisation

...Discuss Gregory’s Top Down Theory of Perceptual Organisation (8 + 16 marks) Richard Gregory’s 1974 theory of Top Down Processing suggests that perception is an active, constructive process in which both perceptual/sensory input from the environment and previous knowledge interact to produce our perception. Unlike Gibson, Gregory is not reductionist, and stresses the importance of other factors, such as previous knowledge and expectations in accurate perception, rather than just sensory input and ‘affordances’. Sensory input alone, according to Gregory, is insufficient for accurate perception. The case study of SB – a man who had been blind for the entire 52 years of his life can support Gregory’s assumption of the importance of previous knowledge in perception. SB could tell the time by using the touch vision he learned in childhood, which supports the role of previous experience and learning in accurate perception. While this can be criticized for being un-generalisable due to being a case study, it had a massive importance on Gregory’s theory, which still is one of the most influential theories explaining perceptual organisation today, and can be supported by experimental studies into previous knowledge. Gregory’s suggestion that we combine sensory information and previous knowledge to form a hypothesis about what we perceive has been supported by Khorasani et al (2007). In this study, the Muller Lyer illusion (which automatically adjusts the apparent size of a more......

Ad Design Replication Scenario

...AD Design Replication Scenario Since the two new branch offices will be directly connected to main office you can configure hub and spoke topology and configure the replication schedule as per requirement. I would also recommend in hub site to have minimum two DC for redundancy. In the event of failure if second DC does not exist irrespective of OS version AD replication will be down totally. At least in the hub site you should have additional DC if not present. The first rule of Active Directory design is keeping it simple. Active Directory is very flexible. So flexible that you can design an Active Directory forest that is complex beyond imagination. All Windows Server 2003/08 R2 supports the Active Directory containers of forest, domain, site, and organizational unit (OU). With the only real restriction of one forest per namespace, you can deploy as many domains, sites, and OUs as you deem necessary. To run a replication topology in multisite network, it should be run off of Inter site Topology Generator. This will allow you to replicate between the two new offices. There are three attributes to control the behavior of replication traffic over the site link: cost, schedule, and frequency. Assigning a cost to a site link object allows the administrator to define the path that replication will take. The schedule of the site link object determines when the link is available to replicate information. A site link’s frequency determines how often information will be......

Top Down vs Bottom Up

...Top-Down, Bottom-Up and Metacognition – Discovering the Mind Angelica Lipscomb PHYC102-1402B-10 Robin Redfern June 15, 2014 Abstract In scientific psychology the question of how information is processed is achieved by asking to what amount a psychological procedure is motivated by top-down as opposed to bottom-up information. The difference between top-down and bottom-up processing is commonly used in experimental psychology. Top-down processing proposes that we form our observations starting with a bigger objective, thought, or knowledge before working our way in the direction of more thorough information. Bottom-up processing, also identified as "small chunk" processing, proposes that we attend to or identify essentials by beginning with the slighter, finer specifics of that component and then move upward until we have a firm illustration of it in our minds. Top-down processing is also identified as conceptually-driven processing, because your observations are swayed by anticipations, beliefs, and perceptions. Sometimes people are mindful of these encouragements, but in other cases this procedure happens without mindful cognizance. Top-down processing can be useful when we are searching for similarities in our environment, but it can also obstruct our capability to recognize things in diverse ways. Our prejudice toward observing things in a particular way is recognized as a perceptual set. A good example of top-down processing is the sentence that is traveling......
