Incorporating the Ontology Paradigm Into Software Engineering: Enhancing Domain-Driven Programming in Clojure/JavaPublication Year: 2012, Page(s):3 - 14
Cited by: Papers (1)
There is a notable overlap of the challenges with which the semantic technologies and software engineering deal. They can also complement and mutually improve each other. Current efforts mostly focus on improving software tools around the resource description framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) Web-oriented ecosystem that helps ontology engineers but is alien to software engineers. Thi... View full abstract»

This paper presents the state of the art in the development of Semantic-Web-enabled software using object-oriented programming languages. Object triple mapping (OTM) is a frequently used method to simplify the development of such software. A case study that is based on interviews with developers of OTM frameworks is presented at the core of this paper. Following the results of the case study, the ... View full abstract»

Enriching business process models with semantic annotations that are taken from an ontology has become a crucial need in service provisioning, integration and composition, and business processes management. We represent semantically annotated business processes as part of an Web ontology lanuage knowledge base that formalizes the business process structure, the business domain, a set of criteria t...

Software-intensive systems in business information technology (IT) and industrial automation have become increasingly complex due to the need for more flexible system reconfiguration and business and engineering processes. Systems and software-engineering projects depend on the cooperation of experts from heterogeneous engineering domains using tools that were not designed to cooperate seamlessly....

We present a component-based, conceptual architecture for Semantic Web applications. It describes the high-level functionality that substantially differentiates Resource Description Framework (RDF)-supported applications from database-driven applications. We provide a strong empirical grounding for this architecture through a survey of Semantic Web applications over most of the past decade. Our em... View full abstract»
Applying Ontology-Based Models for Supporting Integrated Software Development and IT Service Management ProcessesPublication Year: 2012, Page(s):61 - 74
Cited by: Papers (9)
Ontologies have been applied in previous research in an attempt to improve software engineering (SE) tools with computational semantics. In addition, ontology models have been applied to model and build supporting tools for IT service management (ITSM) processes, including the formal modeling of service-level agreements. Both the areas of concern share a common upper layer of concepts, as certain ... View full abstract»
Question answering (QA) is probably one of the most challenging tasks in the field of natural language processing. It requires search engines that are capable of extracting concise, precise fragments of text that contain an answer to a question posed by the user. The incorporation of voice interfaces to the QA systems adds a more natural and very appealing perspective for these systems. This paper... View full abstract»

The nearest neighbor (NN) rule is one of the most successfully used techniques to resolve classification and pattern recognition tasks. Despite its high classification accuracy, this rule suffers from several shortcomings in time response, noise sensitivity, and high storage requirements. These weaknesses have been tackled by many different approaches, including a good and well-known solution that... View full abstract»

To engineer the modern large, complex, interdisciplinary systems-of-systems (SoS), the collaborative world teams must “speak” the same language and must work on the same “matter.” The “matter” is the system model and the communication mechanisms must be supported by standard, flexible, and friendly modeling languages. The evolving model-based systems engin... View full abstract»

Although active research has recently been conducted on received signal strength (RSS) fingerprint-based indoor localization, most of the current systems hardly overcome the costly and time-consuming offline training phase. In this paper, we propose an autonomous and collaborative RSS fingerprint collection and localization system. Mobile users track their position with inertial sensors and measur... View full abstract»

Many studies have investigated the effect of vibrotactile cues on task performance, but a wide range of cue and task types have made findings difficult to interpret without a quantitative synthesis. This report addresses that need by reviewing the effectiveness of vibrotactile cues in a meta-analysis of 45 studies. When added to a baseline task or to existing visual cues, vibrotactile cues enhance... View full abstract»
