    Developing the Semantic Web, seeking to improve the semantic awareness of computers connected via the Internet, requires a systematic, computer-oriented world representation. Researchers often refer to such a model as an ontology. Despite the work done on them in recent years, ontologies have yet to be widely applied and used. Research has devoted only limited attention to such practical issues as... View full abstract»

    We teach a hardware and software codesign course to second-year students who have expressed an interest in either electronics or informatics (computer science). The course emphasizes concepts and methods that are useful to both hardware and software developers and in particular to developers of embedded systems who must consider both disciplines as well as their interaction. We consider the course... View full abstract»

  • Using knowledge anchors to reduce cognitive overhead

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):111 - 112
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (274 KB)

    Cognitive overhead, a well-known Web design problem, was defined by Conklin as the additional effort and concentration necessary to maintain several tasks or trails at one time. Cognitive overhead can be reduced using bidirectional knowledge anchors, points within a frame that have significance to the author-and later to the reader. A knowledge anchor is the point within the frame from which the u... View full abstract»

    As networks have grown in size and complexity, connecting a vast array of business functions, intrusion threats have increased in frequency and sophistication. Network administrators and vendors are thus looking beyond traditional intrusion detection technology, which catches problems only after they have occurred, to a new, proactive approach: intrusion prevention. Intrusion prevention offers act... View full abstract»

    IBM has invested millions of dollars on Linux development and made the open-source operating system available on its entire server line. The company's recently announced Virtual Linux-On-Demand service will, for the first time, let companies access large-scale computing over the Internet. Instead of physical servers, customers will be able to tap into virtual servers on mainframes running Linux an... View full abstract»

    Searching, comprehending, and using the semistructured HTML, XML, and database-service-engine information stored on the Web poses a significant challenge. This data is more sophisticated and dynamic than the information commercial database systems store. To supplement keyword-based indexing, researchers have applied data mining to Web-page ranking. In this context, data mining helps Web search eng... View full abstract»

    Professionals have a responsibility to use their skills and experience where relevant to judge the nature and reality of problems facing their community and to promote and support solutions to those problems. This responsibility distinguishes professionals from people who ply a trade. The paper considers how a computing professional's skills and experience are particularly relevant to the communit...

    The sheer volume of Web data, together with its low signal-to-noise ratio, make it difficult for text-based search engines to locate high-quality pages. Analyzing the links between Web sites has dramatically improved the Web search experience and spawned research into the Web's link structure. This research includes graph-theoretic studies of connectivity, which have shown the Web to have strong s... View full abstract»

    The authors explore three topics in computational intelligence: machine translation, machine learning and user interface design and speculate on their effects on Web intelligence. Systems that can communicate naturally and learn from interactions will power Web intelligence's long term success. The large number of problems requiring Web-specific solutions demand a sustained and complementary effor... View full abstract»

    Web intelligence reflects the view that eventually we will build a totally new kind of collective intelligence on the Web computing infrastructure. To reach this goal we must solve several major problems. For example, embedding Web computing into our everyday lives and society poses a more difficult problem than engineers might think. Because new technologies often consume financial resources with... View full abstract»

    Agent internal mechanisms form the basis for many of the languages proposed for describing agent behavior and interagent protocols. For the Web, however, we should also consider the needs of application designers such as sales managers, travel agents, and schoolteachers. To this end, the author is developing Q, a language for describing interaction scenarios between agents and users based on agent... View full abstract»

    Realizing the Web's full potential will require the development and support of agents that function as schedulers, planners, and searchers who, with minimal direction, can serve as an omnipresent staff of advisers, secretaries, brokers, and research assistants. Electronic commerce has brought this capability tantalizingly near. Organizations and individuals have connected an enormous variety of pr... View full abstract»

    The Web's very popularity is making it more difficult to find, present, and maintain the data that users with a wide range of tasks and computer skills need. Existing document management systems use keyword matching as a search method, combined with information retrieval rather than query answering. In addition, these systems offer limited information-sharing facilities, and they do not support di... View full abstract»
