Towards a Course of Action Probability Ontology for Logistic Supply Destruction Operation [chapter]

Xinye Zhao, Zhongchen Fan, Shanliang Yang, Kedi Huang
2012 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
This paper has proposed the preliminary design of a case of the logistic supply destruction operation (LSDO) for using probabilistic ontology to find effective courses of action.  ...  The design of the COA-Ontology strives to support course of action (COA) planning on the upper level of PR-OWL ontology classes.  ...  Finally, Section 3 describes a use case of PR-OWL 2 ontology for logistic supply destruction operation (LSDO).  ...

Evolution: Complexity, Uncertainty and Innovation [chapter]

Peter M. Allen
2015 Economic Complexity and Evolution  
Input Output representation of behaviours will become large, and our actions erroneous.  ...  Complexity science provides a general mathematical basis for evolutionary thinking. It makes us face the inherent, irreducible nature of uncertainty and the limits to knowledge and prediction.  ...  Although, a system that is initially not at the peak of probability will more probably move towards the peak, it can perfectly well move the other way; it just happens to be less probable that it will.  ...

How Does It Work?

Mario Bunge
2004 Philosophy of the Social Sciences  
Finding mechanisms satisfies not only the yearning for understanding, but also the need for control.  ...  This article addresses the following problems: What is a mechanism, how can it be discovered, and what is the role of the knowledge of mechanisms in scientific explanation and technological control?  ...  (Why serotonin causes euphoria is of course a separate question that cries for a different mechanism.)  ...

Matthew Ford
2019 European Journal of International Security
