Qualitative modelling of unknown interface behaviour

2000 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
When faced with an interface to an unknown system or device humans adopt exploratory interactive behaviour in order to gain information and insight.  ...  The aim is to gain insight into the nature of an unknown system for guidance in future model selection.  ...  QUALITATIVE MODELLING OF UNKNOWN INTERFACE BEHAVIOUR 513 Regarding real-world target applications, as mentioned previously, a possible application is an &&unknown'' software system such as an interactive  ...

Singular solutions for the rigid plastic double slip and rotation model under plane strain

S Alexandrov, E Lyamina
2018 IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering  
Such behavior of solutions is in qualitative agreement with experimental data that show that a narrow layer of localized plastic deformation is often generated near frictional interfaces.  ...  In the mechanics of granular and other materials the system of equations comprising the rigid plastic double slip and rotation model together with the stress equilibrium equations under plane strain conditions  ...  The qualitative asymptotic behaviour of solutions is controlled by the exact asymptotic behaviour of the dependence of the yield stress on the quadratic invariant of the strain rate tensor at infinity.  ...

Considering the Importance of User Profiles in Interface Design [chapter]

Yuanhua Liu, Anna-Lisa Osvalder, MariAnne Karlsso
2010 User Interfaces  
Therefore, designers should not only analyze or foresee how users interact with an interface, but also test the validity of their assumptions concerning users' behaviour in real-world tests with real users  ...  Compared to other interface design philosophies, UCD focuses on optimizing the user interface around how users can, want, or need to work, rather than forcing the users to change their mental models or  ...  Secondly, the model shows that the influence of users' expertise on users' behaviour differs in relation to the complexity levels of medical user interfaces.  ...

2007 Proceedings of the 4th international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '07  
Easy to use workbenches for Qualitative Reasoning and Modelling are virtually nonexistent. This has a limiting effect on the use and update of the technology by a larger audience.  ...  We present Garp3, a user-friendly workbench that allows modellers to build, simulate, and inspect qualitative models.  ...  We want to thank the anonymous reviewers and the participants of the NaturNet-Redime workshop in Amsterdam (October 11-14, 2005) for their feedback and suggestions concerning the Garp3 workbench.  ...

CytoASP: a Cytoscape app for qualitative consistency reasoning, prediction and repair in biological networks

Aristotelis Kittas, Amélie Barozet, Jekaterina Sereshti, Niels Grabe, Sophia Tsoka
2015 BMC Systems Biology  
Qualitative reasoning frameworks, such as the Sign Consistency Model (SCM), enable modelling regulatory networks to check whether observed behaviour can be explained or if unobserved behaviour can be predicted  ...  It allows easy integration of qualitative modelling, combining the functionality of BioASP with the visualisation and processing capability in Cytoscape, and thereby greatly simplifying qualitative network  ...  Integer linear programming (ILP) has also been recently employed on interaction graphs to encode constraints on the qualitative behaviour of the nodes [14] .  ...

Kathleen R. Murphy, Colin A. Stedmon, Philip Wenig, Rasmus Bro
2014 Analytical Methods  
An online repository of published organic fluorescence spectra has been developed, which can be searched for quantitative matches with any set of unknown spectra.  ...  At the same time, many studies have drawn conclusions about the origins and behaviours of various components on the basis of qualitative comparisons with earlier studies.  ...  This widespread use of qualitative or subjective criteria for equating components between studies is a serious confounding factor for interpreting global trends in component distributions and behaviours  ...
