The Research Abort Concept Restructuring of the Sensor Semantic Networks

2013 Sensors & Transducers  
Even though much research has been activated on SSN, there is little activity on how to restructure concepts in SSN.  ...  The idea of concept restructuring is to deal with and reduce the difficulty in dealing with large domain concept and to provide semantics for concept integration, expansion, and update.  ...  Actions are sets of action expressions. An activity hyper-graph consists of a set of labeled state nodes that are connected by labeled directed hyper-edges.  ...

A Semantic Approach for Business Process Model Abstraction [chapter]

Sergey Smirnov, Hajo A. Reijers, Mathias Weske
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, an approach is presented that exploits semantic information within a process model, beyond structural information, to decide on which activities belong to one another.  ...  Abstraction has proven to be an effective means to present a readable, high-level view of a business process model, by showing aggregated activities and leaving out irrelevant details.  ...  Specifically, it exploits semantic aspects-beyond the control-flow perspective-to determine a similarity between different activities for the purpose of simplifying process model abstraction.  ...

From fine-grained to abstract process models: A semantic approach

Sergey Smirnov, Hajo A. Reijers, Mathias Weske
2012 Information Systems  
This article presents an approach that uses semantic information of a process model to decide on which activities belong together.  ...  The presented work is expected to contribute to the development of modeling support for the application of effective process model abstraction, in this way improving the usability of business process models  ...  Specifically, it exploits semantic aspects-beyond the control-flow perspective-to determine the similarity between different activities for the purpose of abstracting from overly complex process models  ...

Ontology Transformation and Reasoning for Model-Driven Architecture [chapter]

Claus Pahl
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontologies are suitable in particular for the Web Services platform due to their ubiquity within the Semantic Web and their application to support semantic Web services.  ...  MDA emphasises the importance of modelling in the architectural design of service-based software systems. Ontologies can enhance the modelling aspects here.  ...  The semantics of a CIM can be seen as a directed labelled graph with nodes (objects and processes) and edges (relationships).  ...

Multimodal Use of an Upper-Level Event Ontology

Claire Bonial, David Tahmoush, Susan Windisch Brown, Martha Palmer
2016 Proceedings of the Fourth Workshop on Events  
As a result, the ontology facilitates interoperability and the combination of annotations done for each independent resource.  ...  We find that the ontology facilitates the generalization of potentially noisy or sparse individual realizations of events into larger categories of events and enables reasoning about event relations and  ...  Acknowledgments We gratefully acknowledge the support of DARPA DEFT -FA-8750-13-2-0045 and DTRA HDTRA1 -16-1-0002/Project # 1553695, eTASC -Empirical Evidence for a Theoretical Approach to Semantic Components  ...

Social Software for Coordination of Collaborative Process Activities [chapter]

Frank Dengler, Agnes Koschmider, Andreas Oberweis, Huayu Zhang
2011 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
The aim of this paper is to exploit Wikis and social networks for the coordination of collaborative process activities. Wikis are suggested in order to reduce the model design phase.  ...  A technique will be introduced that allows visualizing a process model from Wiki pages. The connection of process activities with social networks supports browsing for suitable process collaborators.  ...  An example of a simple Community Process -Writing an EU proposal The special feature of a Community Process model is the labeling of activities with "U".  ...

A learning perspective on individual differences in skilled reading: Exploring and exploiting orthographic and semantic discrimination cues

Petar Milin, Dagmar Divjak, R. Harald Baayen
2017 Journal of Experimental Psychology. Learning, Memory and Cognition  
The results reveal a complex interplay of bottom-up and top-down support from orthography and semantics to the target verbs, whereby activations from orthography only are modulated by individual differences  ...  The goal of the present study is to understand the role orthographic and semantic information play in the behaviour of skilled readers.  ...  The semantic labels abstract over the specifics of individual verbs to facilitate the creation of more generic categories, e.g. the label "motion verb" unites verbs expression motion (such as run, jump  ...
