Building an enterprise-scale software system is a complex undertaking. Despite decades of technological advances, the demands imposed by today's information systems frequently stretch to breaking point a company's ability to design, construct, and evolve its mission-critical software solutions. In particular, few new systems are designed from the ground up.(More)
This paper defines the fundamental concepts, key elements, and semantics of a metamodel that is being proposed as a response to the OMG's RFP for a Business Process Definition Metamodel [BPDM]. It also introduces notations that allow to view a process model at varying levels of detail, while maintaining consistency with the underlying model and semantics. A(More)
This paper presents an approach that permits the effective hardware realization of a novel Evolvable Spiking Neural Network (ESNN) paradigm on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). The ESNN possesses a hybrid learning algorithm that consists of a Spike Timing Dependent Plasticity (STDP) mechanism fused with a Genetic Algorithm (GA). The design and(More)
The current growth of neuron technology is reflected by the increasing focus on this research area within the European research community. One topic is the implementation of neural networks (NNs) onto silicon. FPGAs provide an excellent platform for such implementations. The development of NNs has led to multiple abstractions for various generations. The(More)
Models, modeling, and model transformation form the basis for a set of software development approaches that are known as model-driven development (MDD). Models are used in reasoning about a problem domain and the corresponding solution domain for some area of interest. In this paper, we explore model-driven approaches to the realization of solutions for(More)
