  • Ontology Creation as a Sensemaking Activity

    This article explores the use of diagramming to support simultaneous sensemaking and ontology development. The authors argue that tools can be developed to support a continuum of knowledge models, from initial free-form diagrams that make it easy to capture anauthorés knowledge and intent but are only interpretable by humans, to propositionally coherent concept maps that structure the free-form diagrams into independently meaningful node-link-node triples, and finally to description-logic concept maps that combine human readability and understanding with logical formalism and a machine-understandable format. The CmapTools Ontology Editor (COE) is a version of CmapTools that uses a descriptive-logic style to encode meanings. Rendering Web Ontology Language (OWL) into concept map notation may be regarded as a first marker in the territory that lies toward the formal end of a continuum of human-machine functionality. In COE-OWL diagrams, the machine reads the parts of the diagram that it can and performs allowable logical operations, while ignoring the parts of the diagram it cannot read. Conversely, humans read those parts of the diagram that make sense and can ignore the rest, knowing that the two formsóthe natural and the logicalóare linked in a way that is itself meaningful and functional. The authors call this merger of ontology creation and sensemaking ìopportunistic computation. View full abstract»

    The educational applications of AI are a combination of what Pasteur's Quadrant describes as use-inspired basic and pure applied research. This article gives an overview of the classical and emerging architectures for AI in education. Early researchers focused on creating personalized teaching systems based on solitary learners, whereas recent work takes account of other people and the learning context. Various Grand Challenges illustrate the issues still facing AI in education. View full abstract»

  • Databases as Social Entities

    Databases can be seen as social entities, since they are used by a group of users, not a single one. This article describes methods to transform this group into a social network and then use the added social dimension for collaborative tasks. The author defines user similarity based on the similarity of SQL statements and proposes ways to let users add tags or metadata to the databas. This user-generated content is stored with the data it refers to. View full abstract»

  • Measuring Driving Behaviors from Live Video

    Because of the technical and cost constraints on traditional measurement methods, there is a lack of long-term driving behavior data from natural traffic scenes, and this situation has been hindering research progress into driving behavior modeling and other related topics. Thanks to high-definition cameras and advanced visual measurement methods, traffic visual detection is entering a new stage of traffic visual measurement, and thus we can expect to achieve accurate segmentation, positioning, and measurement for road vehicles from live video to meet the requirement for field test data in behavior modeling. To measure driving behaviors in a cost-effective manner, the authors propose a comprehensive visual measurement approach that could perform well in complex traffic scenes. Specifically, they describe a procedure for traffic visual measurement, some preliminary algorithms, and some representative experimental results. Comparisons between the proposed method and three traditional ones (driving simulator, in-vehicle data recorder, and remote-sensing camera) indicate that the biggest advantage of the proposed method is it can measure driving behaviors from live video. Hence, the ongoing research will greatly benefit cognition in driving behavior models. View full abstract»
