What is the influence of genre during the perception of structured text for retrieval and search? (2014)
Thesis
CLARK, M.J. 2014. What is the influence of genre during the perception of structured text for retrieval and search? Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis presents an investigation into the high value of structured text (or form) in the context of genre within Information Retrieval. In particular, how are these structured texts perceived and why are they not more heavily used within Informa...

Situation awareness approach to context-aware case-based decision support. (2012)
Thesis
NWIABU, N.D. 2012. Situation awareness approach to context-aware case-based decision support. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Context-aware case-based decision support systems (CACBDSS) use the context of users as one of the features for similarity assessment to provide solutions to problems. The combination of a context-aware case-based reasoning (CBR) with general domain... Read More about Situation awareness approach to context-aware case-based decision support..
