Refinement in response to validation.
Knowledge-based systems (KBSs) are being applied in ever increasing numbers. In parallel with the development of knowledge acquisition tools is the demand for mechanisms to assure their quality, particularly in safety ...
36 units: exhibition of 36 intaglio prints
36 Units was an exhibition of 36 Intaglio Prints that were constructed from over 200 plates. The exhibition was accompanied by a full colour catalogue, which included a critical review by Lindsay Gordon, director of Peacock ...
A formalism for describing and simulating systems with interacting components.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1996-05)
This thesis addresses the problem of descriptive complexity presented by systems involving a high number of interacting components. It investigates the evaluation measure of performability and its application to such ...
Stone cleaning: a value assessment.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1999-03)
Buildings are an important record of a country's history and cultural heritage, and make an important contribution to modern cultural identity. Any intervention which changes their appearance, or the manner in which they ...
Refinement complements verification and validation
Knowledge based systems are being applied in ever increasing numbers. The development of knowledge acquisition tools has eased the “Knowledge Acquisition Bottleneck”. More recently there has been a demand for mechanisms ...
Research procedures/methology for artists & designers.
(Centre for Research in Art & Design, Gray's School of Art, Robert Gordon University., 1993)
This paper attempts to put into context the issues which surround the endeavours of researchers working in the field of Art and Design, in particular the philosophy and context of research procedures / methodologies. ...
Analytical investigation of the steady-state behaviour of dynamic and diffusive building envelopes.
A one-dimensional model describing the steady-state dynamic and diffusive behaviour of a three-layer building envelope element is developed with the objective of elucidating the physics of simultaneous heat and vapour ...
Fundamental properties of aboutness.
(ACM Press, 1999-08)
Consultant-2: Pre- and post-processing of machine learning applications.
The knowledge acquisition bottleneck in the development of large knowledge-based applications has not yet been resolved. One approach which has been advocated is the systematic use of Machine Learning (ML) techniques. ...
Modeling as a fragment assembling process.
(Qualitative Reasoning Group, 1999-06-01)
Model based reasoning about physical systems deals with diagnosis, supervision, interpretation, explanation, etc. Most of the contributions to this domain do not pay much attention to model construction, and it was generally ...
