A methodology for the elicitation of redesign knowledge. (2002)
Conference Proceeding
AHRIZ, H. and ARANA, I. 2002. A methodology for the elicitation of redesign knowledge. In Damiani, E., Howlett, R.J., Jain, L.C. and Ichalkaranje, N. (eds.) Knowledge-based intelligent information engineering systems and allied technologies: proceedings of the 6th International conference on knowledge-based intelligent information and engineering systems (KES 2002), 16-18 September 2002, Crema, Italy. Frontiers in artificial intelligence and applications, 82. Amsterdam: IOS Press.

We present MADAM, a methodology which allows the elicitation, capture, analysis and management of redesign knowledge. This area is characterised by the high reusability of problem solutions and is represented using three views: physical, functional a...

Coordinated reasoning with inference fusion. (2002)
Conference Proceeding
HU, B., COMPATANGELO, E. and ARANA, I. 2002. Coordinated reasoning with inference fusion. In Damiani, E., Howlett, R.J., Jain, L.C. and Ichalkaranje, N. (eds.) Knowledge-based intelligent information engineering systems and allied technologies: proceedings of the 6th International conference on knowledge-based intelligent information and engineering systems (KES 2002), 16-18 September 2002, Crema, Italy. Frontiers in artificial intelligence and applications, 82. Amsterdam: IOS Press, pages 156-160.

We discuss a new approach which uses inference fusion, i.e. the cooperative reasoning from distributed heterogeneous inference systems, in order to extend the scope of deductions based on description logics. More specifically, our approach integrates... Read More about Coordinated reasoning with inference fusion..

A virtual learning environment for introductory programming. (2002)
Conference Proceeding
ALLISON, I., ORTON, P. and POWELL, H. 2002. A virtual learning environment for introductory programming. In Proceedings of the 3rd Conference of the Learning and Teaching Support Network: Subject Centre of Information and Computer Sciences (LTSN-ICS 2002), 27-29 August 2002, Loughborough, UK. Loughborough: Loughborough University, pages 48-52.

Teaching of initial programming is a significant pedagogical problem for computing departments. It is shown that by understanding the changing characteristics of computing students helps to identify their learning approaches and requirements. These f...

Inferring query models by computing information flow. (2002)
Conference Proceeding
BRUZA, P.D. and SONG, D. 2002. Inferring query models by computing information flow. In Proceedings of the 11th Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) international conference on information and knowledge management (CIKM'02), 4-9 November 2002, McLean, USA. New York: ACM [online], pages 260-269. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1145/584792.584837

The language modelling approach lo information retrieval can also be used lo compute query models. A query model can be envisaged as an expansion of an initial query. The more prominent query models in the literature have a probabilistic basis. This... Read More about Inferring query models by computing information flow..

Using document clustering and language modelling in mediated information retrieval. (2002)
Thesis
MURESAN, G. 2002. Using document clustering and language modelling in mediated information retrieval. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Our work addresses a well documented problem: users are frequently unable to articulate a query that clearly and comprehensively expresses their information need. This can be attributed to the information need being too ambiguous and not clearly defi... Read More about Using document clustering and language modelling in mediated information retrieval..
