IMMORTALITY AS A NETWORK OF RELATIONSHIPS. EXPERIENCE OF BUILDING A POSTHUMOUS AVATAR ON THE LIFENAUT PLATFORM

Katarzyna Nowaczyk‑Basińska
2019 Studia Humanistyczne (Kraków. 2003)  
Based on an analysis of the American Lifenaut research project, I attempt to capture immortality created today as a network of relationships among human and non‑human factors.  ...  The users involved in the experiment gather data on the www.lifenaut.com platform to retain their personality in a digitized form after biological death.  ...  Even at an early stage of work, an avatar can be sent to a selected person or group of people who will be training the avatar with me.  ...

A semantic approach to avoiding fake neighborhoods in collaborative recommendation of coupons through digital TV

Manuela Martin-vicente, Alberto Gil-Solla, Manuel Ramos-Cabrer, Yolanda Blanco-Fernandez, Martin Lopez-Nores
2010 IEEE transactions on consumer electronics  
In this paper, we apply semantic reasoning techniques to avoid such fake neighborhoods and, thereby, improve the recommendation process.  ...  Furthermore, taking advantage of the Digital TV medium, we propose matching the recommended coupons to TV contents semantically related with them, in order to increase their redemption 1 .  ...  To do this, we have defined a semantic similarity metric based on inferring semantic relations between commercial products and TV programs.  ...

Engineering Semantic-Based Interactive Multi-device Web Applications [chapter]

Pieter Bellekens, Kees van der Sluijs, Lora Aroyo, Geert-Jan Houben
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For this class of personalized Web applications we look at an example application, a TV recommender called SenSee, in which we solve these problems in a metadata-driven way.  ...  Another problem is how to move away from a sluggish static interface to a responsive dynamic one as seen in regular desktop applications.  ...  Our approach is based on semantic faceted browsing techniques (e.g. refer to [20] or [21] ). The idea is to go beyond a pure keyword-based search.  ...
