Towards Conversational Artifacts [chapter]

Toyoaki Nishida
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this article, I present an approach to building conversational artifacts.  ...  A big challenge is to build conversational artifacts -such as intelligent virtual agents or conversational robots -that can participate in conversation so as to mediate the knowledge process in a community  ...  Technologies for conversational artifacts will play a significant role in these applications.  ...

Toward effective algorithm visualization artifacts

Christopher D. Hundhausen
1998 CHI 98 conference summary on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '98  
Despite their intuitive appeal, computer-based algorithm visualization (AV) artifacts have failed to enter mainstream computer science education.  ...  I argue that past research into the design, evaluation, and pedagogical use of AV artifacts has been guided by an underlying theory of effectiveness that is fundamentally deficient.  ...  At the level of conversations, AV artifacts are beneficial insofar as they serve as powerful communicative resources.  ...

Edelman's Steps Toward a Conscious Artifact [article]

Jeffrey L. Krichmar
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In 2006, during a meeting of a working group of scientists in La Jolla, California at The Neurosciences Institute (NSI), Gerald Edelman described a roadmap towards the creation of a Conscious Artifact.  ...  Lastly, I would like to thank the "Build A Brain" group at The Neurosciences Institute for generating these ideas, for the progress toward a Conscious Artifact, and for many fond memories.  ...  Acknowledgments I would like to thank Bernie Baars and David Edelman for the discussion that brought this roadmap to mind, as well as for many interesting conversations.  ...

A Workflow Execution Platform for Collaborative Artifact-Centric Business Processes [chapter]

Sira Yongchareon, Kan Ngamakeur, Chengfei Liu, Sivadon Chaisiri, Jian Yu
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
without performing model conversion.  ...  To execute an artifact-centric process model, current workflow execution approaches require it to be converted to some existing executable language (e.g., BPEL) in order to run on a workflow system.  ...  Shared artifacts are defined as a contract between participating organizations where it contains business stages to capture progress of the process toward the completion of the collaborative process.  ...

The semantic turn: A new foundation for design

2007 Artifact  
This is not a turn away from communication and "communities of practice" but a "twist" towards the importance of "place making" beyond the idea of culturally invested spaces and towards a local and global  ...  I would encourage other stakeholders mastering other intellectual tools to enter the conversation. Let me give a few examples of possible pieces for conversation.  ...

What Counts as Software Process? Negotiating the Boundary of Software Work Through Artifacts and Conversation

Marisa Leavitt Cohn, Susan Elliott Sim, Charlotte P. Lee
2009 Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)  
In this paper, we examine the role of work artifacts and conversations in negotiating between prescriptions from a model and the contingencies that arise in an enactment.  ...  A qualitative field study at two Agile software development companies was conducted to investigate the role of artifacts in the software development work and the relationship between these artifacts and  ...  Code, rather than being the center towards which all work is oriented, moves out into the Software Process through these conversations and artifacts.  ...

2021 Diagnostics  
conversion of B-line artifacts to Z-line.  ...  We investigated the possibility of B-line artifact conversion depending on the set frequency (2 MHz and 6 MHz), and examined pleural line abnormalities.  ...  However, a large aperture with a low impedance mismatch exists at the top which allows both: a minimal reflection (towards the bottom of the trap), and a significant transmission (towards the transducer  ...
