Representation and learning schemes for argument stance mining. (2019)
Thesis
CLOS, J. 2019. Representation and learning schemes for argument stance mining. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Argumentation is a key part of human interaction. Used introspectively, it searches for the truth, by laying down argument for and against positions. As a mediation tool, it can be used to search for compromise between multiple human agents. For this... Read More about Representation and learning schemes for argument stance mining..

Ontology driven information retrieval. (2019)
Thesis
NKISI-ORJI, I. 2019. Ontology driven information retrieval. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Ontology-driven information retrieval deals with the use of entities specified in domain ontologies to enhance search and browse.

Knowledge driven approaches to e-learning recommendation. (2018)
Thesis
MBIPOM, B. 2018. Knowledge driven approaches to e-learning recommendation. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Learners often have difficulty finding and retrieving relevant learning materials to support their learning goals because of two main challenges. The vocabulary learners use to describe their goals is different from that used by domain experts in tea... Read More about Knowledge driven approaches to e-learning recommendation..

Complexity modelling for case knowledge maintenance in case-based reasoning. (2006)
Thesis
MASSIE. S. 2006. Complexity modelling for case knowledge maintenance in case-based reasoning. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Case-based reasoning solves new problems by re-using the solutions of previously solved similar problems and is popular because many of the knowledge engineering demands of conventional knowledge-based systems are removed. The content of the case kno... Read More about Complexity modelling for case knowledge maintenance in case-based reasoning..
