The Unified Modelling Language, or the UML, is a graphical modelling language that
provides us with a syntax for describing the major elements (called artifacts in the
UML) of software systems. In this course, we will explore the main aspects of the
UML, and describe how the UML can be applied to software development projects.
Through to its core, UML leans towards object oriented software development, so in
this course, we will also explore some of the important principles of object
This paper introduces an unsupervised vector approach to disambiguate words in biomedical text that can be applied to all-word disambiguation. We explore using contextual information from the Uniﬁed Medical Language System (UMLS) to describe the possible senses of a word. We experiment with automatically creating individualized stoplists to help reduce the noise in our dataset. We compare our results to SenseClusters and Humphrey et al. (2006) using the NLM-WSD dataset and with SenseClusters using conﬂated data from the 2005 Medline Baseline. ...
Systems Analysis and Design: Chapter 18 - Object-Oriented Systems Analysis and Design Using UML's Objectives is Understand what object-oriented systems analysis and design is and appreciate its usefulness; Apply the steps used in UML to break down the system into a use case model and then a class model.
This book is an effort to bring the appHcation of new technologies into the
domain of agriculture. Historically, agriculture has been relatively behind the
industrial sector in using and adapting to new technologies. One of the
reasons for the technological gap between industrial and agricultural sectors
could be the modest amounts of investments made in the field of agriculture
compared to the impressive numbers and efforts the industrial sector invests
in new technologies.
After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Become familiar with several object-persistence formats, be able to map problem domain objects to different object-persistence formats, be able to apply the steps of normalization to a relational database, be able to optimize a relational database for object storage and access,...
