An Ontology for Collaborative Decision Making [chapter]

Jacqueline Konaté, Pascale Zaraté, Aminata Gueye, Guy Camilleri
2020 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
This article focuses on an ontology construction for collaborative decision making. To do this, a state of the art on collaborative decision-making, on ontology engineering and on collaboration engineering has been done. An eight-step ontology development methodology was adopted and implemented to build the ontology. A corpus made up of more than seventy-seven (77) documents was the starting point for the extraction of terms from the ontology and the UML (Unified Modeling Language) language

DSS for Winemaker: A Dynamic Modeling Approach [chapter]

Hassan Ait Haddou, Guy Camilleri, Pascale Zaraté
2012 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
We present a decision support system for the fermentation step in winemaking based on a mathematical model of kinetics of alcoholic fermentation. We used an optimization technique in order to predict the fermentation step. This optimization technique was carried out using the method of factorial analysis. The first interesting application of this system, rather than existing ones, comes from the fact that it can predict the evolution of pH during alcoholic fermentation. Recall that pH is used

2016 Gastroenterology  
The fundamental gastrointestinal functions include motility, sensation, absorption, secretion, digestion, and intestinal barrier function. Digestion of food and absorption of nutrients normally occurs without conscious perception. Symptoms of functional gastrointestinal disorders often are triggered by meal intake, suggesting abnormalities in the physiological processes are involved in the generation of symptoms. In this article, normal physiology and pathophysiology of gastrointestinal

The pathophysiology of perception, motility, mucosal barrier, and secretion in functional gastrointestinal disorders as well as effects of food, meal intake, and microbiota on gastrointestinal motility and sensation are discussed. Genetic mechanisms associated with visceral pain and motor functions in health and functional gastrointestinal disorders are reviewed. Understanding the basis for digestive tract functions is essential to understand dysfunctions in functional gastrointestinal disorders. T he complex process of digestion of food and absorption of nutrients normally occurs without conscious perception. Symptoms reported by patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders often are triggered by meal intake, suggesting that abnormalities in the physiological processes involved in digestion are involved. Evaluation of sensory function and gastrointestinal motility aims to identify abnormalities in neuromuscular function to ultimately guide therapeutic management. In this article, more general and region-specific aspects of normal physiology and pathophysiology, and the processes underlying symptom generation, are critically discussed. Normal Physiology: Main Components The fundamental gastrointestinal functions include sensation, motility, digestion, absorption, and secretion. Perception Peripheral nerves, afferent signaling. Human beings have the capability to consciously perceive a variety of highly differentiated sensations originating from the upper and lower sections of the gut. In the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract, specific sensations amenable to conscious awareness range from temperature, taste, hunger, fullness, satiety, nausea, and pain. In the small and large bowel, distensions and contractions cause aversive sensations such as nausea, bloating, cramping, discomfort, and pain. Only a minority of the sensory information arising from the gastrointestinal tract is perceived consciously. The majority (estimated to be >90%) of afferent sensory information from the viscera serves homeostatic functions. The gastrointestinal tract is densely innervated to provide information on its luminal contents, processes regulating digestion and absorption, and potential threats. 1 This information was collected by intrinsic and extrinsic afferent nerves and regulates physiological responses for homeostasis and health. In brief, sensory neurons of the enteric nervous system activate local responses. Extrinsic afferent nerves transmit sensory information to the spinal cord or brainstem for further processing and integration (for brain processing, see later). In general, the extrinsic afferent innervation of the gut is conducted through the vagus nerve and the spinal afferents. The cell bodies of the vagus afferents are in the nodose ganglion, and mainly project to the nucleus of the solitary tract. Vagovagal reflexes result in stimulation of vagal efferents in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve. Two examples of vagovagal reflexes are transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations and mealinduced gastric accommodation.

Dynamic Models for Ideas Number Prediction in Brainstorming

Hassan Ait Haddou, Guy Camilleri, Pascale Zarate
2012 2012 45th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
In this paper, we extend the approach presented in [1] to the cognitive model of brainstorming proposed by Brown and Paulus in [4]. In their work Brown and Paulus developed two dynamic models of brainstorming, a non-cognitive model and a cognitive model. These models describe for each participant, the evolution of ideas number over time, and are formalized by differential equations. Through solution functions of these models, we propose to calculate the number of ideas of each participant on

In this paper, we propose an optimization model based on the fourth order Runge-Kutta's numerical method and we apply it to the cognitive model. Through some feasibility tests, we show the adequacy of the proposed approach to our prediction context.

1998 Circulation  
Background-In human ventricular cells, the inwardly rectifying K ϩ current (I K1 ) is very similar to that of other mammalian species, but detailed knowledge about the K ϩ -dependent distribution of open and blocked states during rectification and about the K ϩ -dependent modulation of inactivation on hyperpolarization is currently lacking. Methods and Results-We used the whole-cell patch-clamp technique to record I K1 in myocytes isolated from subendocardial layers of left ventricular septum
more » ... om patients with nonfailing hearts with aortic stenosis and cardiac hypertrophy who were undergoing open-heart surgery. Outward currents were very small at voltages positive to the reversal potential but increased at high external [K ϩ ]. Chord conductance measurements and kinetic analyses allowed us to estimate the proportion of channels in the open state and of those showing either slow unblock or instantaneous unblock (the so-called slow or instantaneous "activation") on hyperpolarization: the distribution in the individual states was dependent on external [K ϩ ]. The proportion of channels unblocking slowly was greater than that of channels unblocking instantaneously on hyperpolarization from the plateau voltage range. Hence, because of the previously reported link between the presence of highly protonated blocking molecules and slow unblock kinetics, it is suggested that high cellular concentrations of spermine may account for the low outward current density recorded in these cells. The current decrease observed on extended hyperpolarization was significantly relieved by an increase in external [K ϩ ]. Conclusions-The pattern of I K1 current alterations observed in the present model of human ventricular hypertrophy might favor enhanced excitability and underlie ventricular arrhythmias, possibly via increased intracellular polyamine levels.

This is an author-deposited version published in : Eprints ID : 19038 Abstract. Collective decision processes remain a common management approach in most organizations. In such processes, it seems important to offer participants the opportunity to confront the differences in their points of view. To this end, cognitive and

The aim of our study is to assess whether, in the multi-criteria approach to problem structuring, decision-makers can be comfortable using shared criteria in addition to private criteria. For this purpose, an exploratory experiment with student subjects was conducted using the Group Decision Support System, GRUS.

2017 International Journal of Decision Support System Technology  
Recommender systems aim to support decision-makers by providing decision advice. We review briefly tools of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA), including aggregation operators, that could be the basis for a recommender system. Then we develop a multicriteria recommender system, STROMa (SysTem of RecOmmendation Multi-criteria), to support decisions by aggregating measures of performance contained in a performance matrix. The system makes inferences about preferences using a partial order on

Thus, recommendations are calculated using partial preferences provided by the decision maker and updated by the system. An integrated web platform is under development.
