A Pattern-based Analysis of Clinical Computer-interpretable Guideline Modeling Languages

N. Mulyar, W. M. P. van der Aalst, M. Peleg
2007 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
Measurements: We evaluated the selected CIG modeling languages and identified their degree of support of 43 control-flow patterns.  ...  The main goals of this article are: (1) to examine the expressive power of CIG modeling languages, and (2) to define the differences, from the control-flow perspective, between process languages in workflow  ...  As a means for evaluation, we used evaluation criteria explicitly defined. 16 These evaluation criteria specify a set of context conditions an analyzed language has to fulfill in order to support a pattern  ...

Evaluating a Pattern Approach as an Aid for the Development of Organisational Knowledge: An Empirical Study [chapter]

Colette Rolland, Janis Stirna, Nikos Prekas, Peri Loucopoulos, Anne Persson, Georges Grosz
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In particular, we define three constituent features, namely the knowledge contained in patterns, the language used to construct patterns and the method for developing the patterns.  ...  For each of these features we define an evaluation hypothesis and then test this hypothesis against a set of criteria and metrics. The experiments conducted and the results are presented in summary.  ...  For representing the guidelines, we used natural language. An example of change process pattern is given in Figure 2 .  ...

Evaluative Pattern Extraction for Automated Text Generation

Chia-Chen Lee, Shu-Kai HSIEH
2016 Proceedings of the 9th International Natural Language Generation conference  
The extracted patterns and their differentiation can be beneficial to identifying and characterizing evaluative language for further automated opinion summarization and macro/micro planning in natural  ...  In this paper we present a novel approach by identifying and extracting evaluative patterns, providing a different linguistically-motivated framework for automated evaluative text generation.  ...  Therefore, patterns extracted from the texts should be the primary consideration and observation for natural language processing, particularly for semantic and sentiment analysis, whether as for annotation  ...

When Language Meets Language: Anti Patterns Resulting from Mixing Natural and Modeling Language [chapter]

Fabian Pittke, Henrik Leopold, Jan Mendling
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
As a result, we identify a set of nine anti patterns for mixing natural and modeling language.  ...  Business process modeling has become an integral part of many organizations for documenting and redesigning complex organizational operations.  ...  If the control flow semantics of a process are partially encoded using natural language, a structural check for deadlocks or other issues may erroneously evaluate the process as correct.  ...
