Towards Inconsistency Tolerance by Quantification of Semantic Inconsistencies

István Dávid, Eugene Syriani, Clark Verbrugge, Didier Buchs, Dominique Blouin, Antonio Cicchetti, Ken Vanherpen
2016 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems  
Since the encountered inconsistencies may potentially disappear as the natural consequence of a design workflow, tolerating them to a given extent may be desirable and can lead to a more efficient collaboration  ...  A key to reason about tolerance is the quantification of the impact of single inconsistencies on the overall system design.  ...  we discuss how the quantitative model in Section 3 can be used to tolerate semantic inconsistencies.  ...

Inconsistency-Tolerant Integrity Checking

H Decker, D Martinenghi
2011 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
Inconsistency-tolerant integrity checking proves beneficial both for integrity preservation and query answering.  ...  We show that most of them can still be used to check whether updates preserve integrity, even if the current state is inconsistent.  ...  The following example illustrates how integrity-preserving repairs can be computed by inconsistency-tolerant update methods.  ...

Principles for Inconsistency [article]

Shel Finkelstein
2009 arXiv   pre-print
In this CIDR 2009 Perspectives paper, we present real-world reasons inconsistency may be necessary, offer principles for managing inconsistency coherently, and describe implementation approaches we are  ...  investigating for sustainably scalable systems that offer comprehensible user experiences despite inconsistency.  ...  Inconsistency may not be tolerable in such situations.  ...

Introduction to Inconsistency Tolerance [chapter]

Leopoldo Bertossi, Anthony Hunter, Torsten Schaub
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this introductory chapter, we consider the need and role for inconsistency tolerance, and briefly review some of the foundational technologies for inconsistency tolerance.  ...  To address this, inconsistency tolerance is being built on foundational technologies for identifying and analysing inconsistency in information, for representing and reasoning with inconsistent information  ...  Foundational technologies for inconsistency tolerance Inconsistency tolerance is being built on foundational technologies for identifying and analysing inconsistency in information, for representing and  ...

issues in the context of inconsistency tolerance.  ...  In particular, it reviews types of inconsistency, specification of integrity constraints, and treatment of inconsistency in multiple representations and data integration.  ...  Further, it discusses how inconsistency tolerance can be introduced in querying inconsistent spatial databases.  ...

Inconsistent approach in schools

Oral health education Inconsistent approach in schools Sir, it is disappointing to see the UK rank bottom in a global survey of oral health education in schools.  ...  with a statistically significant reduction between pre-and post-operative modified dental anxiety scale (MDAS) values in patients with moderate to severe anxiety. 3 As such an invasive procedure is tolerated  ...

Leveraging inconsistency in software development

B. Nuseibeh, S. Easterbrook, A. Russo
2000 Computer  
We also thank the participants at the ICSE-97 workshop on "Living with Inconsistency" for lively discussions of these ideas.  ...  Consistency rules can emerge from several sources: • Notation definitions. Many notations have welldefined syntactic integrity rules.  ...  Although we have argued that inconsistencies can and should be tolerated during the process of developing specifications, we had always assumed that inconsistencies are temporary; eventually a consistent  ...

Disciplined Inconsistency with Consistency Types

Brandon Holt, James Bornholt, Irene Zhang, Dan Ports, Mark Oskin, Luis Ceze
2016 Proceedings of the Seventh ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing - SoCC '16  
Distributed applications and web services, such as online stores or social networks, are expected to be scalable, available, responsive, and fault-tolerant.  ...  [UUID] Inconsistent[UUID] Rushed[UUID] N/A UUIDPool.remain() Consistent[Int] Inconsistent[Int] Rushed[Int] Interval[Int]  ...  However, if the latencybound type returns with weak consistency (Inconsistent case), then this referential integrity property may not hold.  ...

Measuring inconsistency in knowledgebases

John Grant, Anthony Hunter
2006 Journal of Intelligent Information Systems  
We then define a measure of extrinsic inconsistency that can be used to compare the inconsistency of different knowledgebases.  ...  information and integrity constraints prior to merging.  ...  The intrinsic inconsistency can be viewed as the inconsistency of a source in terms of its own language and that of its integrity constraints.  ...

Inconsistency handling in multiperspective specifications

A.C.W. Finkelstein, D. Gabbay, A. Hunter, J. Kramer, B. Nuseibeh
1994 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
Often this is not even desirable since this can unnecessarily constrain the development process, and can lead to the loss of important information.  ...  This paper presents our technique for inconsistency handling in the ViewPoints framework by using simple examples.  ...  Here, the notion of relaxing constraints and tolerating inconsistencies is discussed, and a simple technique that allows inconsistencies to be managed and tolerated is presented.  ...

Inconsistency-Tolerant Business Rules in Distributed Information Systems [chapter]

Hendrik Decker, Francesc D. Muñoz-Escoí
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For overcoming these problems, we outline a measure-based inconsistency-tolerant approach to business rules maintenance.  ...  Business rules enhance the integrity of information systems. However, their maintenance does not scale up easily to distributed systems with concurrent transactions.  ...  Generalizing Inconsistency-tolerant Integrity Checking Inconsistency-tolerant integrity checking can now be defined as follows. Definition 2.  ...

Measure-Based Inconsistency-Tolerant Maintenance of Database Integrity [chapter]

Hendrik Decker
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Based on an abstract concept of violation measures, updates and repairs can be checked for keeping inconsistency bounded, such that integrity violations are guaranteed to never get out of control.  ...  To maintain integrity, constraint violations should be prevented or repaired. However, it may not be feasible to avoid inconsistency, or to repair all violations at once.  ...  In 4.1, we define and illustrate measure-based inconsistency-tolerant integrity checking.  ...

Making inconsistency respectable in software development

Bashar Nuseibeh, Steve Easterbrook, Alessandra Russo
2001 Journal of Systems and Software  
These inconsistencies can arise in system requirements, design speci®cations and, quite often, in the descriptions that form the ®nal implemented software product.  ...  Depending on the nature of an inconsistency, its causes and its impact, they sometimes choose to tolerate its presence, rather than resolve it immediately, if at all.  ...  We would also like to thank the participants at the ICSE-97 workshop on``Living with Inconsistency'' for lively discussions of these ideas.  ...
