In this paper we propose a Web-based software system that allows the realization of a highly personalized Web browsing experience. The system is based on two relevant elements: the Intelligent Agent and the pCard document. The Intelligent Agent analyzes the Web sites visited by the users collecting information useful to her/his characterization and crosses(More)
Many working processes are complex and composed by heterogeneous atomic tasks, e.g. editing, assembling data from different sources (as databases or laboratory's devices) with texts, images or learning objects, or submitting them to software components to retrieve information, to render them, re-format, submit to computations, and other types of information(More)
We have hypothesized that part of the toxicity of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is mediated by interaction with the estrogen receptor complex. The experiments reported here investigate the interactions of TCDD with agonists and antagonists of the estrogen receptor. CD-1 female mice were observed for 2 months after treatment with various(More)
An ontology-supported e-knowledge base aimed to the evaluation of obesity and related co-morbidities is presented. The main goal of such a clinical profiling tool is to help determine the health status of a subject, supporting the knowledge transfer between medical researchers and general practitioners.
There is an increasing request by organizations to allow people outside the IT department to create, shape and adapt the software artifacts they use as they do with real ones in their work practice. Moreover, organizations have recently become aware that they are part of a complex network of connections with partners, customers, and suppliers. This new(More)
The constant growth in health expenditure, together with the expected doubling of the EU's old-age dependency ratio in the next 40 years (with a drop of the working-age population) represent a scenario that needs to be addressed with fast and effective responses and one of the key factors in reaching this objective is considered to be the exploitation of(More)
A methodology is described to design and generate virtual environments that a) support the activities of practitioners skilled with the experimental knowledge of their specific domain; b) offer multimodal interaction styles customized to the culture and skills of the target community of practitioners; c) are tailorable, customizable and adaptive to the(More)
Information intensive activities are usually carried out by heterogeneous work groups: collaboration is needed to reach a common goal that stems from different individual tasks such as data harvesting, aggregation and presentation, dealing with a large amount of highly fragmented information that could overload the working procedure nowadays adopted.(More)
