This book has two main goals: to provide a unifed and structured overview of this growing field, as well as to propose a corresponding software framework, the OpenTL library, developed by the author and his working group at TUM-Informatik.
The main objective of this work is to show, how most real-world application scenarios can be naturally cast into a common description vocabulary, and therefore implemented and tested in a fully modular and scalable way, through the defnition of a layered, object-oriented software architecture.
Formal specification of agent behaviour through environment scenarios introduces a formal notation for the specification of scenario s in agent based systems. The autonomous and collaborative behavior of an agent can be formally specified by a set of rules describing its activity in various scenarios. The power of the approach is illustrated by the formal specification of maes.
his report extends research on using scenarios for strategic planning, with experiments in what can be called massive scenario generation (MSG), a computationally intensive technique that seeks to combine virtues of human- and model-based exploration of
Climate change has been happening in scales of the global, regional as well as in Vietnam because of human activities which impulse greenhouse gas increasing in the atmosphere. To cope effectively with climate change, the understanding of future climate based on climate change scenarios, particularly scenarios for small areas, is essential. This paper concerns on the application of MAGICC/SCENGEN 5.3 software in combination with statistic correction to develop climate change scenarios for small areas in Vietnam. Results showed that the temperature is increased, while rainfall is changed...
This paper describes our work on building Part-of-Speech (POS) tagger for Bengali. We have use Hidden Markov Model (HMM) and Maximum Entropy (ME) based stochastic taggers. Bengali is a morphologically rich language and our taggers make use of morphological and contextual information of the words. Since only a small labeled training set is available (45,000 words), simple stochastic approach does not yield very good results. In this work, we have studied the effect of using a morphological analyzer to improve the performance of the tagger. ...
This paper describes an alternative translation model based on a text chunk under the framework of statistical machine translation. The translation model suggested here ﬁrst performs chunking. Then, each word in a chunk is translated. Finally, translated chunks are reordered. Under this scenario of translation modeling, we have experimented on a broadcoverage Japanese-English traveling corpus and achieved improved performance.
This work evaluates a set of global forward support location (FSL) options for storing war reserve materiel (WRM). These option packages or “portfolios” have differing numbers and types of FSLs, e.g., land-based or afloat, and have differing allocations of WRM at the alternative sites. Evaluations of these packages address the effectiveness and efficiency of the options in meeting a wide variety of potential scenarios. In this monograph, we present capability-based analytic tools to evaluate the tradeoffs between various FSL options. A central element of our anal...

In this paper, we present a learning approach to the scenario template task of information extraction, where information ﬁlling one template could come from multiple sentences. When tested on the MUC4 task, our learning approach achieves accuracy competitive to the best of the MUC-4 systems, which were all built with manually engineered rules. Our analysis reveals that our use of full parsing and state-of-the-art learning algorithms have contributed to the good performance.
Instrument-based chromatography is now, for all practical purposes,
a mature and well-established field. The days of the necessity for
intensive training on the theories underpinning the technology simply
to provide competent use have long since passed. Now the requirement
is for the analyst to be competent and proficient in the use of
the technology, to produce reliable and defensible results on a routine
basis with little or no formal guidance. I have found that this is case
in my laboratory, and I believe the basic scenario is the same in laboratories
throughout the world....
The Model-View-Controller pattern—universally known as MVC—provides a stable, testable approach to web application development by separating the major functions—or concerns—of an application into independently defined roles.
ASP.NET MVC in Action is a comprehensive guide to MVC-based development using this powerful framework. It offers a clearly-written introduction both to the ASP.NET MVC Framework and to the MVC approach. The focus is on creating real, maintainable web applications—so don't expect toy examples and short snippets.
This lab is designed to be a build-to-specifications test. There are numerous issues that need to be addressed for this
lab to work correctly. The lab is designed to illustrate some of the problems associated with ISDN and link state
routing protocols, such as OSPF. This lab will concentrate on dialer profiles while the second lab scenario will be a
troubleshooting scenario based on a distance vector protocol and legacy DDR configuration. The two scenarios are
designed to thoroughly test your knowledge of the basics of ISDN configuration.
Dynamic, or "lock-and-key," access lists are one of the IOS features commonly used to tighten security on a router.
They allow the network administrator to grant temporary access to a network or service when a user gives a valid ID
and password. Dynamic access list statements have several advantages over static ACL entries: access can be
granted for only a short time, and access can be based on the user, rather than on the IP address of the workstation.
This book analyses the key issues of the offshore wind farm's energy transmission and grid integration infrastructure. But, for this purpose, there are not evaluated all the electric configurations. In the present book is deeply evaluated a representative case. This representative case is built starting from three generic characteristics of an offshore wind farm: the rated power, the distance to shore and the average wind speed of the location.
OSGi in Action is a comprehensive guide to OSGi with two primary goals. First, it provides a clear introduction to OSGi concepts with examples that are relevant both for architects and developers. Then, it explores numerous practical scenarios and techniques, answering questions like: How much of OSGi do you actually need? How do you embed OSGi inside other containers? What are the best practices for moving legacy systems to OSGi?
Composite applications aid businesses by stitching together various componented
business capabilities. In the current enterprise scenario, empowering business
users to react quickly to the rapidly changing business environment is the top most
priority. With the advent of composite applications the 'reuse' paradigm has moved
from the technical aspect to the business aspect. You no longer re-use a service
but re-use a business process. Now, enterprises can define their own behaviors
optimized for their businesses through metadata and flows.
The aim of this first exercise, of an aggregate nature, was to give an overall capital figure
for the whole of the Spanish banking system. The analysis was top-down, as the
information used enabled a sufficiently precise estimate to be made for the whole of the
banking system, but was not sufficiently granular to provide for individual bank estimates.
