    This is one of two essays on the forces and constraints of procurement versus the goals of human centering, including the creation of intelligent technologies that are usable, useful, and understandable. The procurement process tends to de-emphasize these goals while focusing on strict adherence to rules and regulations. As a result, software system development processes, described in texts and acquisition documents, have come to be misaligned with the challenges faced by development teams. This misalignment between "actual world problems" and normative documentation repeatedly results in failed systems. A real-life practitioner's account illustrates this point by describing how a group of individuals, acting on their own initiative and at their own risk, short-circuited the rules and constraints of the procurement process to turn a procurement process failure into a success. In the next essay, we will present a model called the Practitioner's Cycles and discuss how this model applies to the envisioned world problem, which is the challenge of creating intelligent technologies for new work systems.

    As our information society transitions from human-to object-oriented information, especially in ubiquitous-network environments, the advanced technologies developed for ubiquitous sensor networks (USNs) have received considerable attention. In addition, the prevalence of USN computing environments raises the issue of how applications can take full advantage of contextaware information. The main tasks of ubiquitous computing include generating new information from objects on the basis of data received from sensors, transmitting the newly generated information through wireless networks, analyzing the information received, and performing the specific tasks from that analysis. To establish a ubiquitous-computing environment, various fields (administration, medical, transportation, environment, disaster prevention, and so on) have incorporated USN technologies (such as sensor node hardware, sensor networks, and USN middleware) and USN application services (such as ecosystem forecasting, sniper countermeasures, health monitoring, environment observation, and surveillance to detect intruders).

  • An AI-Based Break-Scheduling System for Supervisory Personnel

    Designing shift plans represents a difficult but interesting task because they must satisfy various, often conflicting, requirements. In this article, we address a complex real-world break-scheduling problem for supervisory personnel and present a scheduling system that can help professional planners create high-quality shift plans. Supervisory personnel spend most of their workday in front of computer monitors, addressing critical and constantly changing situations. For employees working under such conditions to always maintain high levels of concentration, it's essential that they take occasional breaks. Usually, the amount of break time, as well as the position and duration of breaks within their work time (shift) are regulated by labor rules that must be satisfied by a feasible shift plan. Moreover, to guarantee effective supervision, a minimum number of employees must be working at any given time. View full abstract»

    Financial markets provide a forum for trading assets and money, but more fundamentally, they are about trading information. The advent of the Internet changed the trading game by making market information instantly available to many more people, spawning a large population of day traders, bloggers, and market speculators. Information generation and analysis, long the province of well-funded, large financial institutions, has become fair game for all, even people with limited means, from college students to retirees. Information in the finance Web is unstructured, leading to some frustration in getting clean data for research. View full abstract»

  • From Proteins to Fairytales: Directions in Semantic Publishing

    There has been an ongoing discussion about how to improve the delivery of scientific content using online tools, especially by focusing on content reuse and social media. This column explores how semantic technologies and systems could also enhance the scientific communication process. The author discusses some ongoing initiatives in semantic publishing, which aims to improve how scientists communicate using semantic technologies. The column mentions different types of projects, including efforts focusing on entity enrichment and projects that involve triple markup of documents (subject-predicate-object expressions). However, such approaches are not enough. They help us find information, but they don't help us understand it. The author argues that we need to incorporate a better understanding of how language encodes meaning into our systems, so that we can develop a richer scientific knowledge representation.
