D. P. Acharjya, L. Ezhilarasi
2011 arXiv   pre-print
Well formed fact, the information at right time and at right place deploy a better knowledge.However, the challenge arises when larger volume of inconsistent data is given for decision making and knowledge  ...  In pre process we use rough set on intuitionistic fuzzy approximation space with ordering rules for finding the knowledge whereas in post process we use formal concept analysis to explore better knowledge  ...  Introduction In real world, invent of computers have created a new space for knowledge mining. Thus, data handling and data processing is of prime importance in the information system.  ...

Identifying and Managing Technical Debt in Database Normalization Using Machine Learning and Trade-off Analysis [article]

Mashel Albarak, Muna Alrazgan, Rami Bahsoon
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The trade off is between the rework cost and the debt effect on the quality of the system as the metaphoric interest. To evaluate our method, we use a case study from Microsoft, AdventureWorks.  ...  Our framework makes use of association rule mining to discover functional dependencies between attributes in a table, which will help determine the current normal form of that table and identify debt tables  ...  For X, lower is better. In the case study, we used this metric to determine the risk of data inconsistency for the tables.  ...

Discussion of: "Testing behavioral finance theories using trends and sequences in financial performance," (by Wesley Chan, Richard Frankel, and S.P. Kothari)

Kent Daniel
2004 Journal of Accounting & Economics  
The CFK evidence and other extant empirical evidence is inconsistent with investor misinterpretation of earnings information as a source a long-horizon predictability, as CFK claim.  ...  However, this evidence points to misinterpretation of non-accounting based information as a source of the predictability.  ...  However, this concern is mitigated by a number of studies showing that the size, reversal, book-tomarket and momentum effects are present internationally, and, in the case of bookto-market, that the effect  ...

Assessment of effective parameters on dilution using approximate reasoning methods in longwall mining method, Iran coal mines [article]

H. Owladeghaffari, K. Shahriar, G. H. R. Saeedi
2008 arXiv   pre-print
Therefore the dilution can impose the additional cost of mining and milling. As a result, recognition of the effective parameters on the dilution has a remarkable role in industry.  ...  Approximately more than 90% of all coal production in Iranian underground mines is derived directly longwall mining method. Out of seam dilution is one of the essential problems in these mines.  ...  In this study we employ approximate reasoning methods to analysis of dilution and based upon two main subsets of AR, Rough Set Theory and Fuzzy inference system, the position of effective parameters are  ...

Without foundation or neutral standpoint: using immanent critique to guide a literature review

K. Robert Isaksen
2018 Journal of Critical Realism  
Immanent critique as method can take the form of noting theory-theory, theorypractice, and/or theory-data inconsistencies.  ...  In this article, written for the Applied Critical Realism special issue of Journal of Critical Realism, I use my own research to illustrate how a literature review might look if it were non-foundational  ...  This type of immanent critique is not based on theory-practice or theory-theory inconsistencies, but rather on what we could call theory-data inconsistencies where the data used to propose some conclusion  ...

Multi-use and constraints from original use

Justin A. Jungé, Daniel C. Dennett
2010 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
An emerging class of theories concerning the functional structure of the brain takes the reuse of neural circuitry for various cognitive purposes to be a central organizational principle.  ...  The idea also has some practical implications in the areas of rehabilitative medicine and machine interface design.  ...  In order to better appreciate that evidence and its implications, however, it will be useful to have before us a more concrete example of a theory of neural reuse, and some sense of where such theories  ...
