  • Amadeus Installation and Maintainence Guide 

    Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Distributed Systems Group (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-02)
    The installation and maintainence of an Amadeus system is described.
  • Overview of the Amadeus Project 

    Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Distributed Systems Group (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-02)
    An introduction to the Amadeus v1.0 environment for distributed and persistent programming in C++ is described.
  • Advanced Image Understanding and Autonomous Systems 

    Vernon, David (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-03)
    The ultimate goal of most image understanding systems is to produce an unambiguous 3-D representation of the local visual environment. This representation can then be employed by robotic systems to effect some meaningful ...
  • Limitations of Scientific Ontology 

    Vernon, David; Furlong, Dermot (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04)
    Artificial life is a new multi-disciplinary science which is emerging from established practices in artificial intelligence, computational biology, and cybernetics. It is argued in this paper that conventional scientific ...
  • Conceptual Scoffolding: A Spatially-founded Meaning Representation for Metaphor Comprehension 

    Veale, Tony; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04)
    Once viewed as a rhetorical and superficial language phenomenon, metaphor is now recognized to serve a fundamental role in our conceptual structuring and language comprehension processes. In particular, it is argued that ...
  • An Object-Oriented Approach for Replication Management 

    Gourhant, Yvon (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-04-22)
  • Automatic Detection of Secondary Creases in Fingerprints 

    Vernon, David (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-09)
    Human fingerprints comprise a series of whorls or ridges. In some special cases, these whorls are broken by so-called 'secondary creases': co-linear breaks across a sequence of adjacent ridges. A technique to automatically ...
  • Retrieval Issues in Real-World CBR Applications How far can we go with discrimination-nets? 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Cahill, Eamonn (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-10)
    In this paper we present a proposition and ponder a question. We propose that a useful perspective on analogical reasoning and CBR is to consider them on a continuum of abstraction of remindings. This is an alternative ...
  • Retrieval Issues in Real-World CBR Applications How far can we go with discrimination-nets? 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Cahill, Eamonn (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-06)
    We propose that analogical reasoning and case based reasoning (CBR) tasks can be usefully characterised as a continuum reflecting the remoteness of the remindings involved. Remindings in CBR are generally between semantically ...
  • A Survey of Gesture Recognition Techniques 

    Watson, Richard (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-07-17)
    Processing speeds have increased dramatically, bitmapped displays allow graph ics to be rendered and updated at increasing rates, and in general computers have advanced to the point where they can assist humans in complex ...
  • Modelling of Engineering Thermal Problems: An Implementation using CBR with Derivational Analogy 

    Finn, Donal; Slattery, Sean; Cunningham, Padraig (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
    An interactive cased based reasoning tool for assisting engineers with the mathematical modelling tasks associated with the analysis of thermal problems is described. By representing fundamental thermal modelling scenarios ...
  • Using CBR techniques to detect plagiarism in computing assignments 

    Cunningham, Padraig (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
    The problems of case retrieval in CBR and plagiarism detection have in common a need to detect close but not exact matches between exemplars. In this paper we describe a plagiarism detection system that has been inspired ...
  • Complexity of Adaptation in Real-World Case-Based Reasoning Systems 

    Smyth, Barry; Cunningham, Padraig (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
    The essence of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) as a problem solving paradigm is that solutions are generated by adapting the solutions of similar problems rather than solving the problem from first principles. In this paper ...
  • Unemployment: A Technologist's Perspective 

    Algeo, David (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
  • Knowledge Engineering Requirements in Derivational Analogy 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Slattery, Sean; Finn, Donal (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
    A major advantage in using a case-based approach to developing knowledge-based systems is that it can be applied to problems where a strong domain theory may be difficult to determine. However the development of case-based ...
  • Constraints on Analogical Mapping: A Comparison of Three Models 

    Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-10)
    Three theories of analogy have been proposed which are supported by computational models and data from experiments on human analogical abilities. In this paper, we show how these theories can be unified within a common ...
  • The Cognitive Processes Underlying Complex Analogies: Theoretical and Empirical Advances 

    Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-10)
    The psychological investigation of complex analogies (like the solar system / atom analogy) began in the late 1970s and in the intervening period has grown into a prototypical, area of Cognitive Science research. During ...
  • Design Synthesis: A Model of Hierarchical Case-Based Reasoning 

    Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-12)
    A variety of artificial intelligence techniques have been used in attempts to automate design synthesis tasks. Two common approaches are case-based and decompositional design. While powerful techniques in their own right, ...
  • Adaptation as a Selection Constraint On Analogical Mapping 

    Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-12)
    In any given analogy, there are potentially a large number of possible mapping interpretations. One of the key issues in analogy research is how one of these mappings comes to be selected as optimal and used as the basis ...
