Fujaba Days 2011
Fujaba is an Open Source UML CASE tool project started at the software engineering group of Paderborn University in 1997. In 2002 Fujaba has been redesigned and became the Fujaba Tool Suite with a plug-in architecture allowing developers to add functionality easily while retaining full control over their contributions. Multiple Application Domains Fujaba followed the model-driven development philosophy right from its beginning in 1997. At the early days, Fujaba had a special focus on code generation from UML diagrams ...
Capturing Emergent Semantics from Social Annotation Systems
The ongoing growth of the World Wide Web, catalyzed by the increasing possibility of ubiquitous access via a variety of devices, continues to strengthen its role as our prevalent information and commmunication medium. However, although tools like search engines facilitate retrieval, the task of finally making sense of Web content is still often left to human interpretation. The vision of supporting both humans and machines in such knowledge-based activities led to the development of different systems which allow ...
A Modeling Analysis of Changing Global Land Use as affected by Changing Demands for Wood Products
The 21st century has brought new challenges for forest management at a time when globalization in world trade is increasing and global climate change is becoming increasingly apparent. In addition to various goods and services like food, feed, timber or biofuels being provided to humans, forest ecosystems are a large store of terrestrial carbon and account for a major part of the carbon exchange between the atmosphere and the land surface. Depending on the stage of the ecosystems and/or management regimes, forests ...
Gone with the internet - How the old education was lost
Despite its young history, Computer Science Education has seen a number of "revolutions". Being a veteran in the field, the author reflects on the many changes he has seen in computing and its teaching. The intent of this personal collection is to point out that most revolutions came unforeseen and that many of the new learning initiatives, despite high financial input, ultimately failed. The author then considers the current revolution (MOOC, inverted lectures, peer instruction, game design) and, based on the ...
Discovering Knowledge in Bipartite Graphs with Formal Concept Analysis
Since the 1970s knowledge based approaches are a crucial part of artificial intelligence (AI) research. In this work we investigate data sets in the form of bipartite graphs, i.e., graphs where a bipartition of the vertex set respecting the edge set can be found, for knowledge. To this end we first relate those bipartite graphs to the structure formal context, as used in formal concept analysis (FCA). This link enables us to employ the whole tool-set of FCA to bipartite graphs and therefore, notably, to bipartite ...
Towards Effective Natural Language Application Development
There is a current trend that more and more computer programs analyze written or spoken natural language. For example, DVAs, IE systems, machine translation systems, and many other types of programs process natural language in order to solve specific use cases when interacting with humans via natural language. Amazon, Google, and Mycroft AI are just some of the companies that have produced DVAs capable of interacting with humans via voice. Such NLP applications use techniques from computer science and artificial ...
