Enumerating Preferred Extensions: A Case Study of Human Reasoning [chapter]

Alice Toniolo, Timothy J. Norman, Nir Oren
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper seeks to better understand the links between human reasoning and preferred extensions as found within formal argumentation, especially in the context of uncertainty.  ...  The degree of believability of a conclusion may be associated with the number of preferred extensions in which the conclusion is credulously accepted.  ...  Enumerating preferred extensions: A case study of human reasoning  ...

A context model for knowledge-intensive case-based reasoning

1998 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
In our research we study how the incorporation of case-specific, episodic, knowledge enables such systems to become more robust and to adapt to a changing environment by continuously retaining new problem  ...  The research reported in this paper describes an extension that incorporates additional knowledge of the problem solving context into the architecture.  ...  For example, in the case of deciding which of various therapeutic actions to prefer, the knowledge concerning which medicines have fewer side effects will play a role.  ...

The Instruction-Set Extension Problem

Carlo Galuzzi, Koen Bertels
2011 ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems  
The extension of a given instruction-set with specialized instructions has become a common technique used to speed up the execution of applications.  ...  This survey presents a unique detailed description of the problem and provides an exhaustive overview of the research in the past years in instruction-set extension.  ...  An important issue related to the extension of an instruction-set is the degree of human effort required to identify and implement the instruction-set extensions.  ...

Extensions to Tiered Coalition Formation Games

Nathan Arnold, Judy Goldsmith, Sarah Snider
2022 Proceedings of the ... International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference  
Siler showed that, for a natural notion of agent preferences, the Nash table tier lists were precisely the core stable tier lists, and provided a polynomial-time algorithm to find a Nash stable tier list  ...  In 2017, Siler introduced Tiered Coalition Formation Games (TCFGs), inspired by the tiered organization of Pokémon characters on a fan-based website, Smogon.  ...  Related Work There has been substantial work defining coalition formation games and hedonic games, enumerating preference frameworks, and describing notions of stability within those preference frameworks  ...

Enumerating Extensions on Random Abstract-AFs with ArgTools, Aspartix, ConArg2, and Dung-O-Matic [chapter]

Stefano Bistarelli, Fabio Rossi, Francesco Santini
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This first comparison is useful to study the behaviour of these reasoners over networks with different topologies (including small-world ones): we scale the number of arguments to check the limits of today's  ...  arguments can further increase. 7 Obtaining a more efficient computation of AAF semantics will lead us to have more performant higher-level reasoners on top of these tools, which can in turn be used in  ...  tools able to enumerate all the extensions under a given semantics.  ...

GNU epsilon - an extensible programming language [article]

Luca Saiu
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We develop a parallel garbage collector suitable to multi-core machines to permit efficient execution of parallel programs.  ...  We formally specify and implement an extensible programming language, based on a minimalistic first-order imperative core language plus strong abstraction mechanisms, reflection and self-modification features  ...  Transform-based extensions in particular, relying as they do on the enumeration of all expression forms, require knowledge of all the previously-added expression forms.  ...

Statistical Mechanics of Combat and Extensions [chapter]

1993 Toward a Science of Command, Control, and Communications  
In this study, the focus is to compare the Janus(T) wargame to National Training Center (NTC) data, since both systems then take into account human interactions.  ...  If a reasonable confidence level in computer models of large scale combat scenarios could be obtained, there are several immediate payoffs to be gained.  ...  . 77 Balaconis, another of the author's students, wrote a thesis documenting the extension of this joint concept to a NATO scenario, including studies of competitive strategies and integrated strike  ...

Ontology Modeling Profile , an Extension for the Ontology UML Profile

Wafaa Alakwaa, Akram Salah
2010 International Journal of Computer Applications  
This paper presents an extension for the Ontology Modeling Profile (OUP).  ...  We have shown the role of individuals and slots in building OWL statements. This utilization improves the practical implementation of Ontology models using UML profiles..  ...  CASE STUDY The case study below shows how OMP is applied on the museum class diagram. The UML classes we used in the use case are "museum ,painting, painter".  ...

Assessing efficiency of action aid Sierra Leone (AASL) extension services in Sierra Lione

Mohamed P. Ngegba, Patrick Moriba, Joseph B. A. Kandeh, Juana P. Moiwo, Saffa B. Massaquoi
2018 International journal of agricultural extension  
This paper investigated the participation of the beneficiaries of agricultural extension services run by Action Aid Sierra Leone (AASL) — A British-based non-profit and non-governmental organization.  ...  The study was conducted in Wonde Chiefdom (which is in Bo District, Sierra Leone) where all the 10 rural communities with AASL extension services were targeted.  ...  In most cases, these field workers are nonresidents of the communities they serve, and they only visit the communities once in a fortnight (MAFFS, 2015) .  ...

Hypercomputation: Towards an extension of the classical notion of Computability? [article]

Gentian Kasa
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We start in the first chapter with an analysis of the concept of Classical Computability with the Turing Machine and the Church-Turing thesis as a main reference and afterwards, in the second chapter,  ...  In the third chapter a superficial introduction to Quantum Computing is made and a brief analysis to a quantum hypercomputational model, Tien D. Kieu's Adiabatic Quantum Computing.  ...  After that, he proceeds with an analysis of the set of symbols used during the calculation process, the alphabet of the machine if we prefer. That set must be a finite one and for a good reason.  ...
