Public utilities services (gas, water and electricity) have been traditionally automated with several technologies. The main functions that these technologies must support are AMR, automated meter reading, and SCADA, supervisory control and data acquisition. Most meter manufacturers provide devices with Bluetoothreg or ZigBeetrade communication features.(More)
A method for Information Extraction (IE) in a set of knowledge is proposed in this paper in order to answer to user consultations using natural language. The system is based on a fuzzy logic engine, which takes advantage of its flexibility for managing sets of accumulated knowledge. These sets can be built in hierarchic levels by a tree structure. A method(More)
Datamining has become increasingly common in both the public and private sectors. A non-technical loss is defined as any consumed energy or service which is not billed because of measurement equipment failure or ill-intentioned and fraudulent manipulation of said equipment. The detection of non-technical losses (which includes fraud detection) is a field(More)
Assisted story generation systems do not include automatic generation of content due to the fact that creating generation algorithms is a challenging task, usually carried out in research projects on Artificial Intelligence. This paper proposes a top-down design methodology in which the knowledge representation is based on causality and chronology. The(More)
The field of computational narratology has produced many efforts aimed at generating narrative by computational means. In recent times, a number of such efforts have considered the task of modelling how a reader might consume the story. Whereas all these approaches are clearly different aspects of the task of generating narrative, so far the efforts to(More)
