Spaces of Information Modeling, Action, and Decision Making

Guy De Tré, Wouter Van Acker
2012 Library Trends  
In this article, we give a nontechnical overview of the current state of the art in information management.  ...  Computer science currently provides the means to build digital spaces that consist of (multimedia) information sources connected through the Internet.  ...  Hence, in order to "translate" information and knowledge as used and communicated by humans to their computerized counterparts, the rules of a selected data(base) model or knowledge-base model must be  ...

Ontology-Based User Context Management: The Challenges of Imperfection and Time-Dependence [chapter]

Andreas Schmidt
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
But so far the problem has not been approached as a data management problem, which is key to scalability and robustness.  ...  The specific challenges lie in the imperfection of high-level context information, its time-dependence and the variability in the dynamics between its different elements.  ...  Imperfection handling in data management in general The major part of research on handling imperfection in data management seems to be almost a decade ago (see e.g.  ...

Prototyping a genetics deductive database

C Hearne, Z Cui, S Parsons, S Hajnal
1994 Proceedings. International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology  
We have introduced a formal basis for the representation and reasoning necessary to order genome map data and handle the uncertainty inherent in biological data.  ...  Currently our prototype provides storage for biological facts and rules with flexible access via an interactive graphical display.  ...  This paper reflects the opinions of the authors and not necessarily those of the consortium.  ...

A formal approach to imperfection in geographic information

M. Duckham, K. Mason, J. Stell, M. Worboys
2001 Computers, Environment and Urban Systems  
Based on an ontology of imperfection the paper explores a formal model of imperfect geographic information using multi-valued logic.  ...  Granularity refers to the existence of clumps or grains in information, in the sense that individual elements in the grain cannot be distinguished or discerned apart.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This project is supported by the EPSRC under grant GR/M 56685 "Managing vagueness, uncertainty and granularity in spatial information systems", funded jointly with the School of Computer  ...

Approaches to Uncertain or Imprecise Rules - A Survey [chapter]

Matthias Nickles, Davide Sottara
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
With this paper we present a brief overview of selected promi nent approaches to rule frameworks and formal rule languages for the representation of and reasoning with uncertain or imprecise knowledge.  ...  This work covers selected probabilistic and possibilistic logics, as well as implementations of uncertainty and possibilistic reasoning in rule engine software.  ...  Given the variety of sources, most knowledge based systems are likely to have to deal with some type of imperfection in the data they process: moreover, given the ro bustness/conciseness trade-off, a system  ...

Integrated Testing Strategy (ITS) – Opportunities to better use existing data and guide future testing in toxicology

Joanna Jaworska
2010 ALTEX: Alternatives to Animal Experimentation  
Therefore, to advance ITS research we propose a methodical approach to their design and will discuss currently available approaches as well as challenges to overcome.  ...  Currently we are witnessing a tremendously increased pace of discovery in biology, especially molecular biology, that has increased our knowledge of biological systems' structure and function.  ...  Regarding toxicology, with continuous advances of technologies and methodological approaches, information is no longer equivalent to knowledge (in fact the deluge of data and information may create confusion  ...

Non-Monotonic Knowledge Evolution in VLKDBs

Christian Esculier
1990 Very Large Data Bases Conference  
In the context of very large knowledge/data bases (VLKDBs), specific constraints must be taken into account.  ...  Non-monotonic knowledge evolutions and exceptions constitute a complex theoritical and practical problem. The state of the art shows a rich and surprising diversity of approaches.  ...  The author would like to thank them cordially.  ...
