Anders I. Mørch, William K. Cheung, Kelvin C. Wong, Jiming Liu, Cynthia Lee, Mason H. Lam, Janti P. Tang
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we investigate the use of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), Critiquing Systems, and Knowledge Building to support computerbased teaching of English composition.  ...  A software agent can also use the critic feedback to coordinate a collaborative knowledge building session with multiple users (students and teachers).  ...  In the current project we address the grounding problem [2, 3, 4] computationally by integrating a knowledge-building environment with an LSA-based critiquing system.  ...

This research article will explore how critiques of AI expert systems and Cyc, an ongoing project to create a common sense knowledge base, might apply to Semantic Webefforts like Wikipedia, Wikidata, DBpedia  ...  —in particular, expert systems and knowledge representation—encourages critical questions like: which problems from knowledge representation and expert systems does the Semantic Web inherit?  ...  As Yorick Wilks relates, the Semantic Web is grounded in web document technologies and document markup/annotation (2008, 42) , which means that in addition to its roots in AI and knowledge representation  ...

In this paper, we discuss the role of ontologies to facilitate information fusion from heterogeneous data and knowledge sources in support of high-level information fusion processes.  ...  We review several approaches where ontologies help provide semantic integration of information.  ...  As ontologies promote knowledge reuse and sharing, we should benefit from previous work conducted in related domains, for example in the military planning domain.  ...

Discovering Personalized Semantics for Soft Attributes in Recommender Systems using Concept Activation Vectors

Christina Göpfert, Yinlam Chow, Chih-Wei Hsu, Ivan Vendrov, Tyler Lu, Deepak Ramachandran, Craig Boutilier
2022 Proceedings of the ACM Web Conference 2022  
Using synthetic and real-world datasets, we show that our CAV representation accurately interprets users' subjective semantics, and can improve recommendations via interactive critiquing.  ...  One challenge in using such feedback is inferring a user's semantic intent from the open-ended terms used to describe an item, and using it to refine recommendation results.  ...  This is most likely due to the fact that more accurate ranking-based CAVs better capture a user's intended semantics during critiquing.  ...

Towards shaping the field: theorising the knowledge in a formal course for academic developers

Jo-Anne Vorster, Lynn Quinn
2015 Higher Education Research and Development  
In recent years there have been calls both for building the knowledge base of academic development (AD) and for systematic induction of newcomers to the field if AD is to advance as a professional and  ...  Such a course could equip newcomers with a more solid and shared knowledge base, thus contributing to shaping the epistemic spine of AD.  ...  Shay (2012) argues for the need to build a strong knowledge base for the field based on 'strong' theories with extensive explanatory power.  ...
