    Understanding the processing of information in our cortex is a significant part of understanding how the brain works and of understanding intelligence itself, arguably one of the greatest problems in science today. In particular, our visual abilities are computationally amazing and we are still far from imitating them with computers. Thus, visual cortex may well be a good proxy for the rest of the...

    Computational approaches to problem solving have proven their worth in many fields of science, allowing the collection and analysis of unprecedented quantities of data, and the exploration via simulation of previously obscure phenomena. New "systems" approaches in fields as diverse as biology [12], earthquake science [11], and environmental science [3] are enabled by, and are spurring the further ... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. Ontology mapping (or: ontology alignment, or integration) is one of the most active areas the semantic Web area. An increasing amount of ontologies are becoming available in recent years, and if the semantic Web is to be taken seriously, the problem of ontology mapping must be solved. In this article the author discuss recent work where we have quantitatively shown that in... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (106 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In modeling multiagent systems for real-life problems, techniques for approximate reasoning about vague concepts and dependencies (ARVCD) are necessary. We discuss an approach to approximate reasoning based on rough sets. In particular, we present a number of basic concepts such as approximation spaces, concept approximation, rough inclusion, construction of information granules in calculi of info...

    Summary form only given. Most work so far has concentrated on the design and implementation of conversational agents at the two extremes of the virtuality continuum. In this article, the author reports on a new generation of synthetic characters that are no longer bound to a flat screen, but able to enter a physical world and to engage in a conversation with a human user. Users and characters do n... View full abstract»

    Designing mechanisms for creating concept ontologies automatically is an important research problem. In this work we have proposed a rough-set based mechanism to generate concept ontologies with concepts mined from documents. When the concept ontology is mined from preclassified documents, the output signifies the core set of domain concepts and their inter-relationships that define the categories... View full abstract»

    Software engineering project information is frequently evolving and queried to reflect project development changes in the software requirements or in the design process, to incorporate additional functionality to systems or to allow incremental improvement and the like. Therefore, the project information needs enhancement to ease up-to-date ontological information and to ease communication. Ontolo... View full abstract»

    Origin-destination (OD) network tomography problem is the estimation of OD traffic counts from measurable traffic counts at router interfaces. In this paper the problem is formulated as a linear inverse problem with additive noise and is resolved using Bayesian inversion approach. Both OD traffic counts and noise are modelled as Gaussian random functions, and are represented by Karhunen-Loeve expa... View full abstract»

    Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia, available in more than 100 languages and comprising over 1 million articles in its English version. If we consider each Wikipedia article as a node and each hyperlink between articles as an arc we have a "Wikigraph", a graph that represents the link structure of Wikipedia. The Wikigraph differs from other Web graphs studied in the literature by the fact that th... View full abstract»

    A social network consists of people who interact in some way such as members of online communities sharing information via the WWW. To learn more about how to facilitate community building e.g. in organizations, it is important to analyze the interaction behavior of their members over time. So far, many tools have been provided that allow for the analysis of static networks and some for the tempor... View full abstract»

    For more than one decade knowledge management has taken advantage of some abilities that software agents are endowed with. Agent features such as autonomy, cooperation, communication, and learning capacity have been used to improve the performance of knowledge management applications. In this paper we outline our proposal for implementing a Jade-based multi-agent platform to enhance the potential ... View full abstract»

    A social network is a set of people (or organizations or other social entities) connected by a set of social relationships, such as friendship, co-working or information exchange. Social network analysis focuses on the analysis of pattern of relationships among people, organizations, states and such social entities. Social network analysis provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of huma... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an approach to characterize user activity in e-commerce, especially in Internet auctions. It is considered that users are connected to each other through their transactions. The connectivity makes an extensive complex network where users' intentions and behaviors are reflected in the network structure. That is to say, the network is composed of nodes as users and links as trans... View full abstract»

    Using open source Web editing software (e.g., wiki), online community users can now easily edit, review and publish articles collaboratively. While much useful knowledge can be derived from these articles, content users and critics are often concerned about their qualities. In this paper, we develop two models, namely basic model and peer review model, for measuring the qualities of these articles... View full abstract»

    Automatic generation of a social network requires extracting pair-wise relations of the individuals. In this research, learning social network from incomplete relationship data is proposed. It is assumed that only a small subset of relations between the individuals is known. With this assumption, the social network extraction is translated into a text classification problem. The relations between ... View full abstract»

    We determined the results of the questionnaire for 97 staff members working in dot-jp, a non-profit organization in Japan, to understand the degrees of satisfaction of staff members with leaders. We then extracted human influence networks from the archives of e-mail used at dot-jp to understand relationships between leaders and other staff members. By integrating these two approaches, we revealed ... View full abstract»
