Utilising intelligent interface techniques in the design of systems introduces certain risks. An intelligent interface is not static, but will actively adapt to the perceived needs of the user. Unless carefully designed, these changes may lead to an unpredictable, obscure and uncontrollable interface. Therefore the design of intelligent interfaces must(More)
A computational model of the construction of word meaning through exposure to texts is built in order to simulate the effects of co-occurrence values on word semantic similarities, paragraph by paragraph. Semantic similarity is here viewed as association. It turns out that the similarity between two words W1 and W2 strongly increases with a co-occurrence,(More)
BACKGROUND Associations between an increase in coronary heart disease occurrence and low atmospheric temperatures have been reported from mortality data and hospital admission registries. However, concomitant increases in noncardiovascular case fatality rates and selection bias of hospital cases may weaken this observation. In this study, we addressed the(More)
When participating in tutorial dialogues, human tutors freely refer to their own previous explanations. Explanation is an inherently incremental and interactive process. New information must be highlighted and related to what has already been presented. If user interfaces are to reap the benefits of natural language interaction, they must be endowed with(More)
OBJECTIVE Notch3, a member of the evolutionary conserved Notch receptor family, is primarily expressed in vascular smooth muscle cells. Genetic studies in human and mice revealed a critical role for Notch3 in the structural integrity of distal resistance arteries by regulating arterial differentiation and postnatal maturation. METHODS AND RESULTS We(More)
This paper presents a general computational cognitive model of the way a summary is assessed by teachers. It is based on models of two subprocesses: determining the importance of sentences and guessing the cognitive rules that the student may have used. All models are based on Latent Semantic Analysis, a computational model of the representation of the(More)
