SEAS Homepage SEAS is a software tool developed for intelligence analysts That records analytic reasoning and methods That supports collaborative analysis Across contemporary and historical situations and analysts and has broad applicability beyond intelligence analysis Approach The survival of an enterprise often rests upon its ability to make correct and timely decisions, despite the complexity and uncertainty of the environment. Applications Good candidate applications for SEAS are assessment tasks characterized by the following: SEAS argument templates have been developed for a wide range of applications including the following: Benefits pdx music map Example applications (see also): For unknown bands, an idea was to relate them to you in terms of bands you already know/like (in addition to manually clicking on maybe a “Like” button a la Facebook, it could be assumed that you know of bands that’ve played shows you attended, for instance), using the “six degrees of separation” mechanism like Music Routes. A caveat with all this is that new bands formed by “nobodies” would be at a disadvantage for discovery on this system - less links on the graph - and would still need to be discovered the old-fashioned way. Proposed structure Relationships between musicians, bands: I was thinking it might be necessary to reify the relationships between band members and bands, to have additional triples say things about that relationship (i.e. durations, instrument(s) played). Example: Rather than just saying “Melissa plays in Order of the Gash”, the relationship could be expressed a bit richer (albiet more complicated) as: Architecture

Society for New Communications Research VISHNU : Document Search Engine : MultiMedia and Information Systems : Knowledge Media Institute : The Open University Overview This is a document search engine with several new visualization front ends that aid navigation through the set of documents returned by a query. Keywords from the document set are identified and selected on the fly. These keywords are then used to compute document clusters. The clusters can be displayed and explored using three visualisations: Sammon cluster view, Dendro map or radial interactive visualization. This link, VISHNU, will open the application in a new browser. Papers M Carey, D Heesch and S Rüger: Info Navigator: A visualization tool for document searching and browsing. Knowledge Cartography Knowledge Cartography: Software Tools and Mapping Techniques. (Eds.) Okada, A., Buckingham Shum, S. and Sherborne, T. Springer: Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing Series. ISBN: 978-1-84800-148-0 Published: Oct. 2008Springer Catalogue / Available online as a Springer eBook Knowledge Cartography is the discipline of mapping intellectual landscapes.The focus of this book is on the process by which manually crafting interactive, hypertextual maps clarifies one’s own understanding, as well as communicating it.The authors see mapping software as a set of visual tools for reading and writing in a networked age. With 17 chapters from the leading researchers and practitioners, the reader will find the current state–of-the-art in the field. Knowledge Cartography will be of interest to learners, educators, and researchers in all disciplines, as well as policy analysts, scenario planners, knowledge managers and team facilitators.

Install XSPARQL | Bridging the RDF and XML worlds XSPARQL is a prototype implementation of the XSPARQL language. This rewriter translates an XSPARQL query into an XQuery as described in the XSPARQL Language Specification. Downloading XSPARQL You can download XSPARQLer in two different ways: as precompiled package or as source via the sourceforge subversion repository. Package The packaged XSPARQL is available for download on the Sourceforge project page You can get the current svn version of XSPARQL by running the following command:$ svn co xsparql Maven If you use Maven you can add XSPARQL as a dependency, for example for XSPARQL version 0.5: <dependency> <groupId>org.deri.xsparql</groupId> <artifactId>cli</artifactId> <version>0.5</version> </dependency> Building XSPARQL Prerequisites To build XSPARQL by yourself you will need at least the following software packages: Building XSPARQL In the main xsparql directory (where you probably found this README) run maven with the install goal: Debugging

Center for Implementing Technology in Education (CITEd) What Should I do? Noah - ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Question: Ok so where to begin? I’m a 20 year old college student, and I’m wondering what to do. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in elementary school, prescribed medicine and took it for years. I finally got sick of being on meds and stopped. I havent been on the medicine for some years now, but I’ve just recently started looking back on my performances in the past year or so. This Disclaimer applies to the Answer Below Dr. Answer: One of the many problems with ADHD is the fact that people do not seem to be aware that medicine alone cannot help those with this disorder. So, what I suggest is that you find the psychologists who are expert in ADHD and who can work with you. When I say that this is an ongoing process, what I mean is that there is no "cure" for ADHD but people can and do learn to cope with it. I am interested that you say that you are creative. Definitely stop using pot as that will only make things worse. Good Luck More "Ask Dr.
