An Abduction-Based Method for Index Relaxation in Taxonomy-Based Sources [chapter]

Carlo Meghini, Yannis Tzitzikas, Nicolas Spyratos
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce an operation that extends a taxonomy-based source with possibilities, and then study the property of this operation from a mathematical point of view.  ...  We view an information source as an agent, operating according to an open world philosophy.  ...  knowledge base in S taxonomy plays the role of the theory T h; the role of manifestation, for a fixed object, is played by the index of the object.  ...

A quantitative taxonomy of human hand grasps

Francesca Stival, Stefano Michieletto, Matteo Cognolato, Enrico Pagello, Henning Müller, Manfredo Atzori
2019 Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation  
The taxonomies of hand grasps that have been proposed in scientific literature so far are based on qualitative analyses of the movements and thus they are usually not quantitatively justified.  ...  A proper modeling of human grasping and of hand movements is fundamental for robotics, prosthetics, physiology and rehabilitation.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank all subjects participating in the NinaPro data acquisitions.  ...

Towards a generalized model of diagnostic behaviour

E.T. Keravnou, L. Johnson
1989 Knowledge-Based Systems  
The modelS use can be seen as being twofold: first as an aid in the construction of more adequate shells for diagnostic tasks; and second, and more importantly, as the initial (albeit crude) interpretation  ...  We believe that only a framework which is a global model of human diagnostic reasoning can form an adequate basis for such a combination.  ...  If an expectation violation is thus detected, which points in the direction of an opposing hypothesis, a contextual abductive step has occurred.  ...
