Distinguishing Fact from Fiction in a System of Systems Safety Case [chapter]

Zoä Stephenson, Christian Fairburn, George Despotou, Tim Kelly, Nicola Herbert, Bruce Daughtrey
2010 Advances in Systems Safety  
Based on our recent experience, 'distinguishing fact from fiction' in relation to System of Systems (SoS) safety has emerged as a pertinent topic in a number of senses.  ...  In this particular SoS, the 'fact versus fiction' differential also applies to SoS users and the notion of participant 'immersion' is a key area of interest.  ...  of SoSs, which cannot and what else is required in addition (i.e. distinguishing fact from fiction when moving from complex systems to SoSs).  ...

Sunstein's New Canons: Choosing the Fictions of Statutory Interpretation

Eben Moglen, Richard J. Pierce
1990 The University of Chicago Law Review  
In other writings, one of the authors has proposed a competing system that asks less of judges by conferring greater discretion on agencies. See Richard J.  ...  Our goal is much more modest: to convince readers that Sunstein's proposed system asks more of judges than they are capable of providing, and does so on the basis of fictions concerning legislative behavior  ...  Both premises are fictional in most cases.  ...

Mike Adcock, Deryck Beyleveld
2007 Medical Law International

Ben De Bruyn
2022 Surveillance & Society

'My fingerprint on Osama's cup.' On objectivity and the role of the fictive regarding the acceptance of a biometric technology

Formalizing value-guided argumentation for ethical systems design

By developing the theoretical understanding of intelligent systems guided by embedded values, the paper is a step towards ethical systems design, much needed in these days of ever more pervasive AI techniques  ...  One theme in the study of value-guided argumentation is the comparison of values.
