Background of Software and Business Process Modeling [chapter]

Christian Schalles
2012 Usability Evaluation of Modeling Languages  
Other models are less obvious such as project plans, specifications, designs and metrics [Ludewig, 2003]. In order to distinguish models from other artefacts, specific criteria are needed.  ...  On the other hand, the model must mirror at least some properties of the original. • Pragmatic criterion: the model can replace the original for some purpose, i.e. the model is useful. C.  ...  To organize the complexity of the real-world scenarios, a set of similar entities at the instance level are identified and classified at the model level.  ...

Incremental event conceptualization and natural language generation in monitoring environments

Markus Guhe, Christopher Habel, Heike Tappe
2000 Proceedings of the first international conference on Natural language generation - INLG '00  
It does so by conceptualizing events and building up a hierarchical knowledge representation of the perceived states of affairs.  ...  In this paper we present a psycholinguistically motivated architecture and its prototypical implementation for an incremental conceptualizer, which monitors dynamic changes in the world and simultaneously  ...  Consequently, a language production system designed for verbalizing what the system perceives has to deal with information stemming from multiple modalities, e.g. auditory and spatial.  ...

On the Limits of Design: What Are the Conceptual Constraints on Designing Artificial Intelligence for Social Good? [chapter]

Jakob Mökander
2021 The 2018 Yearbook of the Digital Ethics Lab  
Using Floridi's notion of how to design the 'infosphere' as a starting point, in this chapter I consider the question: what are the limits of design, i.e. what are the conceptual constraints on designing  ...  Finally, five design principles are presented which are aimed at helping policymakers manage the internal and external constraints on design.  ...  For the purpose of exploring the limits of design, I argue that the Philosophy of Information is a fruitful attempt to address this conceptual vacuum by adopting an information-centric level of abstraction  ...

Spatial networks are ubiquitous and have been widely used in transportation, traffic planning, navigation as well as in Geographical Information System (GIS) applications.  ...  A query language, called MONET QL (MONET Query Language), allows a clear description of and access to moving objects in spatial networks and to provides high-level operations on them.  ...  By the corresponding modifications to schemas, it benefits us both from the conceptual level as well as the implementation level.  ...
